25 Diets Rated

USA News rated 25 diets using a panel of 22 health experts including nutritionists and specialists in diabetes, heart health, human behavior, and weight loss.  I checked into he experts and they look legit.

I was surprised at the results of the evaluation.  The Paleo diet came in dead last.  Atkins didn’t do very well either.  They were downgraded mostly for being hard to follow and although you may get short term results they didn’t work as well long term.  I see a lot of people that have been on the Paleo diet for a while and love it so that surprised me.

You know what diet did well that surprised me.  SLIMFAST!!!!! Ok I guess it is easy but isn’t that just eating chemicals?  You can’t live on that stuff can you?  Jenny Craig did very well and Nutrisystem did OK.  I assumed they would be equal and again to much fake food.

Anyway check it out for yourself.
