Confusion over different diets out there

cindigal posted:
You know when a year starts, everyone pitches their diet on TV or online. In this site there were about 4 or different diets I saw, I cant recall all of them but they all work differently. The ones in mind I saw is the Meditarean diet (whatever it spells), DASH diet, Weight Watchers, and then there is a few diet books. One is called Eat It to Beat it..... comprised all about foods that you can eat to banish belly fat. Then I saw the book called, The Shred...different diet one that promises 4 inches or 2 sizes down in a certain amount of time.

With all these different diets out there, I wonder if anyone has tried anyone of the above diets I mentioned or read the books. I look at labels on food whenever I shop, i watch the fat grams, carb, gms of sugar and etc but I want different opinions and ask if anyone tried the diets. Are there menus on WEBMD for the diets they list.

I have tried weight watchers but it didn't work for me because I wasn't ready. Honestly, I think best solution is clean eating and exercise. Portion control. Lots of water...watch fat,sick and nearly dead. It's on Netflix .

I have tried the Shred plan and it really does work if you stick to it. As with any plan, if you go off of it then you tend to gain the weight back. It is basically a step down plan where it doesn't deprive you of everything at once. I think it is pretty good and plan on doing it again in the near future.
