6 Best Diets for Weight Loss in 2023

Mediterranean Diet

It’s high in fiber, which is great for improving digestion.

“It’s also good for heart health and cancer risk reduction.” 


DASH emphasizes fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and low-fat or nonfat dairy and limits saturated fat and dietary cholesterol.

A recent study found of obese older adults found that those who followed the DASH diet lost weight and decreased body fat, along with many other health benefits. 

Vegan Diet

Going a step further than the traditional vegetarian diet, vegans shun all animal products, including dairy, eggs, and honey.

While many choose this lifestyle for ethical or environmental reasons, some people look to the vegan diet for weight loss as well.

Flexitarian Diet

Whereas the vegan diet goes one step beyond vegetarianism, the Flexitarian diet takes it one step back.

“This is a very pro-plant diet, but it gives you the flexibility to have a hot dog at a ballpark, or to eat some turkey at Thanksgiving.

Volumetrics DIet

Consistently rated as one of the best diets by U.S. News & World Report, Volumetrics was created by Barbara Rolls.

The strategy here is simple: Fill up on foods that provide the most nutrition for the least amount of calories.

Plant-Based Diet

You just focus on eating whole foods derived from plants most of the time, 

with wiggle room for the occasional piece of chicken or scrambled egg.
