Looking For The Top 10 Diets?

May 10, 2008
Want to know what the Top 10 Diets are? So did we; so we decided to find out what the most searched for diets were on Google - the number one search engine. And here are the top 10 diets, starting with number 10:

10) Ornish Diet - The Ornish diet was developed by Dr. Dean Ornish, as a low fat diet for vegetarians. His plan was to create a diet to help avoid clogged arteries rather than later having to deal with them. His credo is this is your life you should own it and learn to manage your diet and day to day stress.

9) Zone Diet - The Zone diet which was created by Dr. Barry Sears, is a reduced calorie diet, and has one simple premise - use food as fuel. Eating the proper ratio of low carbohydrates, dietary fat, and lean protein you can burn excess body fat and keep it off permanently.

8) Okinawa Diet - First published in 2001, the Okinawa Diet is an outline of healthy habits based on the lifestyle and diet of the Okinawans who have the highest rate of centenarians (40 per 100,000) on earth. With lots of vegetables and complex carbohydrates this diet gets a great deal of its protein from tofu.

7) Genotype Diet - Dr. Peter J. D'Adamo, author of Eat Right 4 Your Type, has done it again, and now identifies six distinct genetic body types. Whether you are a Nomad, Warrior, Explorer, Teacher, Gatherer, or a Hunter, Dr. D'Adamo offers a customized program that compliments your genetic makeup.

6) DASH Diet - was created by the NIH (National Institute of Health) to lower cholesterol and blood pressure without benefit of medication. This diet has lots of fruits and vegetables, with low fat and/or nonfat dairy, beans, fish and poultry, grains, nuts and lean meats. This diet has 28 days of meal plans along with the recipes.

5) Diabetic Diet - Dr. Richard K. Bernstein brings a new low-carb diet plan that has enabled his patients to control their disease by stabilizing their blood sugar without the usual highs and lows and with fewer drugs.

4) Weight Watchers Diet - We first heard of Weight Watchers in the early to mid 60's. And some 97% of Weight Watcher's members say they not only like the plan they would recommend the diet to a friend. There are no forbidden foods or required prepackaged food to purchase. With several eating plans, you have lots of choices on Weight Watchers.

3) South Beach Diet - This diet was created by Dr. Arthur Agatston, a cardiologist, for his patients to use to improve insulin and cholesterol and levels. But to his surprise, not only did this low-fat and low-carbohydrate diet improve their health, it also caused his patients to drop a lot of weight.

2) Mediterranean Diet - For 50 years, doctors have observed that people of the Mediterranean area were much less likely to suffer heart disease or strokes. They attribute the region's health to a diet low in saturated-fat with plenty of whole grains. This reduced fat diet, with lots of complex carbohydrates is one of the easiest to follow.

1) Atkins Diet - Dr. Robert Atkins, whose diet books have been on the bestseller lists for years, is the author of "The Atkins Diet". Dr. Atkins advocates a high protein weight loss diet which emphasizes the benefits of protein and the dangers of carbohydrates. Still number one, after all these years.
