I researched 41 Diet Plans and included some recipes for each Diet Plan. Flexitarian is a marriage of two words: flexible and vegetarian. The term was coined more than a decade ago by registered dietitian Dawn Jackson Blatner in her 2009 book "The Flexitarian Diet: The Mostly Vegetarian Way to Lose Weight, Be Healthier, Prevent Disease and Add Years to Your Life." What is Volumetrics Diet? Pioneered by Penn State University nutrition professor Barbara Rolls, volumetrics is more of an approach to eating than it is a structured diet. With "The Ultimate Volumetrics Diet" book as your guide, you'll learn to decipher a food's energy density, cut the energy density of your meals and make choices that fight hunger. Food is divided into four groups. Category one (very low-density) includes nonstarchy fruits and vegetables, nonfat milk and broth-based soup. Category two (low-density) includes starchy fruits and veggies, grains, breakfast cereal, low-fat meat, legumes and low-fat mixed dishes like chili and spaghetti. Category three (medium-density) includes meat, cheese, pizza, french fries, salad dressing, bread, pretzels, ice cream and cake. And category four (high-density) includes crackers, chips, chocolate candies, cookies, nuts, butter and oil. You'll go heavy on categories one and two, watch your portion sizes with category three, and keep category four choices to a minimum. Each day, you'll eat breakfast, lunch, dinner, a couple snacks and dessert. Exactly how strictly you follow volumetrics is up to you. Though the books contain recipes and some sample meal plans, the point is to learn the volumetrics philosophy and apply it where you can throughout the day. See where you can replace a category four item with a category one item, for example. WW (Weight Watchers) Diet What is WW (Weight Watchers) Diet? This diet has been reviewed by U.S. News' team of expert panelists. LEARN MORE Although still used to shed pounds, WW (formerly Weight Watchers) is also focused on inspiring healthy living and improving overall well-being. That includes taking a holistic approach to help members eat healthier and move more. Its myWW program, launched in late 2019, is its most customized and flexible program yet. The program builds on WW’s SmartPoints system, which assigns every food and beverage a point value, based on its nutrition, and leverages details about food preferences and lifestyle to match each member to one of three comprehensive ways to follow the program
