Do the Mediterranean diet. While no diet out there has been proven to work, the Mediterranean diet may come closest. It's based on the traditional ingredients and cooking styles of people living near the Mediterranean sea. Research has shown that people adhering to this diet have reduced risk of heart disease - plus it helps you shed pounds and look lean and trim.Focus on eating the following foods (and eliminate bread, dairy and processed foods):
Beans and other legumes
Try the paleo diet. Back when cavepeople still ruled the earth, they didn't have time to bake cupcakes or fry potato chips. The paleo diet (short for paleolithic) seeks to recreate the same diet that our early ancestors ate, claiming that our systems are not built for modern ingredients and cooking styles. You eat meat, vegetables, fruit, and other foods that would have been available back then, and avoid anything paleo people wouldn't have had.
No artificial sweeteners or grains are allowed.
Some people incorporate intermittent fasting into the paleo diet as well to speed up weight loss.
Do the Whole30 diet.The idea behind this diet is to eliminateallprocessed foods from your diet for 30 days to cleanse your system of artificial ingredients and other processed items that are hard on your digestive system. After 30 days, you'll notice a reduced waistline and higher energy levels.
Avoid grains, dairy, sugars, legumes, alcohol and all processed foods.
Eat meat, vegetables, some fruits, and drink plenty of water.
Do the raw food diet. If you dislike meat and are tired of cooking, this one's for you. The raw food diet consists entirely of foods that have not been cooked. You lose weight by consuming loads of fresh vegetables and fruits. Coconut milk, nuts, seeds and other uncooked foods are also allowed on the raw food diet.
Dietitians don't recommend staying on the diet for long periods of time, because eliminating entire food groups can leave you without essential nutrients
