Since I have not been on all of the diets you mention I cannot honestly answer that question, but my opinion of the best diet is the one you can stick to long term. Diets are a dime a dozen. Some will take weight off quickly, but you gain it back as quickly as you lost it. Do what's healthy for your body. Your body will thank you for it.

The blood type diet is a marketing ploy to sell a book. Not sure what the GI diet is. As for the other two...

There is no one diet you can point to and say *that one* has the fastest weight loss. It will vary by individual.

I've done the rice diet (low fat, low calorie, vegetarian for the most part), Atkins, Weight Watchers and just about every other diet and fad out there. My greatest success was with the rice diet. I averaged about a little over 3.5 lbs per week for a year. In years past when I did low carb, I lost 140 lb in 6 months and then struggled to lose even a pound a week and I got tired of never being able to eat off plan without losing 2-3 weeks of progress. With the Rice Diet, I could 'cheat' on Thanksgiving and have turkey, gravy, potatoes and pie and still lose weight the next week.

Ultimately, it's about what diet you will stick to. People say losing weight is a lifestyle change. I'd have to disagree and I think that's why most fail. I think it's about finding a way of eating that fits with your preferred 'lifestyle'. You're more likely to stick with it.

Can you tell us more about the rice diet ?? I was on a brown rice diet once where I ate brown rice for lunch and light dinners everyday for a month...I lost 40 pounds in six weeks...and it stayed off for a very long time..

I have been struggling to lose weight for quite some time now. After I gave birth to my 2nd baby I have never regained my old weight before pregnancy. It's hard for me to go on a strict diet because I need to have all the energy to take care of my baby and to go to work at the same time. Here is something that will enlighten us on how to deal with losing weight.

Default Diet for losing excess body weight

Atkins diet is best diet for weight loss program because this contains low carbohydrates. It involves restricted use of carbohydrates to switch the body’s metabolism from metabolizing glucose as energy over to exchanging stored body fat to energy. So try to engage with this diet plan, if you really wish to lose body weight or maintain proper body structure.

I think 3 and 4 are scams.

As for 1 and 2.. low carb diets, Atkins is stricter, and will therefore get you losing faster.

The best diet however is one you will be following in a year, with steady weight loss, and no cravings/hunger. If Atkins is too strict, then South Beach may be more your speed. If South Beach is still too high in carbs, it may not go low enough in carbs to curb cravings.

The best thing to do is try the diet out. See if you can stick to them, and if they work.

I would agree about SB diet, i have lost 4 pounds with it. I also want to recommend The Japanese diet. The duration is 13 days and I have lost 3 pounds.
