Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question! the solution is as such:

1) 3-Hour Diet

The 3-Hour Diet involves eating small portions every three hours throughout the day. The theory is that eating constantly will keep your metabolism continually running at a high rate and burning fat. There are no prohibited types of food—only portion restrictions. Fried chicken, candy bars, bacon, and red meat are allowed.

2) Atkins Diet The Atkins Diet emphasizes eating lean protein and low-starch vegetables and avoiding simple carbohydrates such as flour and sugar. The diet involves a reduced glycemic load (carb content) to keep blood sugar levels in a healthy range. In theory, consuming fewer carbohydrates allows your body to burn greater amounts of fat.

3) Best Life Diet

The Best Life Diet attempts to change the way you eat, exercise, and live to achieve better health. Its goal is to tackle the root cause of overeating. The diet was designed to counter the quick-fix mentality of most diet programs out there. The Best Life Diet promises to help you discover why you were out of shape to begin with and inspire physical and emotional changes that will last a lifetime.

4) Blood Type Diet

The Eat Right for Your Type diet (Blood Type Diet) advises people to eat certain foods based on their blood type: A, B, AB, or O. The plan posits that each blood type digests food proteins (called lectins) differently and that eating the wrong food proteins can cause ill effects on the body—including slower metabolism, bloating, and even certain diseases. According to this diet, avoiding bad food proteins will help you achieve better health.

8) Grapefruit Diet

The Grapefruit Diet is a meal plan with a primary focus on consuming grapefruit or grapefruit juice at every meal. Foods can be prepared with spices, dressings, or butter. Some caveats include no extremely hot or cold foods, nothing prepared in aluminum pans, and keeping “protein meals” and “starch meals” at least four hours apart. Used for more than 80 years, the diet’s goal is quick weight loss with a daily caloric intake less than 1,000 calories.

9) The Hormone Diet The Hormone Diet suggests that hormone fluctuations can negatively affect a person’s weight, as well as other factors that can contribute to weight gain. The diet is designed to sync hormones with diet, exercise, nutritional supplements, and detoxification. The diet regulates what you eat and indicates the right time to eat to ensure the maximum benefit to your hormones.

10) Mediterranean Diet The Mediterranean Diet encourages an all-encompassing healthy lifestyle through consumption of simple, fresh foods and fitness. Based on the traditional eating habits of poor coastal regions of Southern Italy, Crete, and Greece, it includes vegetables and legumes, fresh fruit, olive oil, and moderate amounts of fish, poultry, and red wine. The diet promises healthy weight loss, along with numerous other health benefits.

11) Nutrisystem Diet The Nutrisystem Diet is a prepaid meal plan with 28 days worth of meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert) delivered to your door. Menus provide a mix of low-glycemic carbohydrates, plenty of fiber, and lean protein. Daily caloric allowances are restricted to 1,200 for women and 1,500 for men. Nutrisystem offers support from registered dietitians throughout the program.
