To find the diet that's right for you, we surveyed people about the diets they tried. This allowed us to rate 13 popular diets. Most of them, like the Atkins Diet and the South Beach Diet, are do-it-yourself.
Consumer Reports has done the legwork for you, asking 9,376 people about diets they've tried. We got the scoop on 13 popular plans. Most of them are free, and for the DIY diets, all you usually need are instructions from an app, a book, or a website.
