Is there anyone over the age of 13 who hasn't at one time or another been on a diet - either for health or weight-loss reasons? Every decade has a "fad-diet” leading us to believe that being thin implies we are healthy and beautiful. Yet according to the U.S. News Report, "...the reality is that dieting is hard and most diets don't work.  

 U.S. News World Report along with a panel of health experts set the criteria, evaluated, and developed a list of the top 28 diets. “To be top-rated, a diet had to be relatively easy to follow, nutritious, safe, and effective for weight loss and against diabetes and heart disease”

I clicked straight to the ranking chart to see if any of the 817 diets I’ve tried in the past few decades made the top 28. Lo and behold 7 of my tried diets withstood the test of time, measured favorably, and ranked in the top 28 on the “Best Diets Overall: The Data” for 2013. The bottom line, dieting is hard work and even though the 7 didn't work for me I still have 21 more options!
