QUIZ: Which Diet Plan is Best for You?

By Daniel McCarter and Stephen Perrine

Don't know how to start losing weight or which plan to try? Take this quiz!

Researching diet plans is a lot like surfing Netflix: You’re bombarded with thousands upon thousands of choices, none of which seem to be exactly what you want. So you spend way too much time sorting through the options until you pick something that seems okay—until you get bored and wander into the kitchen for a snack halfway through.

There are a lot of reasons why diet plans fail, but the number one reason you can’t stick with your plan—or your plan isn’t working—is that it’s simply not the right plan for you. After all, you wouldn’t expect the Olsen twins and the Williams sisters to eat the same meal plan; why should you try to squeeze into a program just because it worked for someone whose life is completely different from yours? (If you do like take a cue from the Hollywood crowd, though, check out these 60-Second Weight Loss Tips Celebs Swear By!)

Of course, you could always hire someone to tailor a nutrition plan just for you, but that costs big bucks. We’ve got a better solution: We’ve picked some of our favorite diet plans, tested and proven by hundreds of people on our test panels. But rather than dictate which plan you should pursue, we’ve developed a fun little interactive quiz that help you decide. Got a sweet tooth? We’ve got a plan for that. Too busy for breakfast in the morning? We’ve got you covered. Simply plug your answers into our mini decoder, and let the weight loss begin!
