Want to tackle those wobbly bits you hate, feel healthier and look better too? We have everything you need to find the diet that's just right for you, so you'll be looking your best in no time!
Whether it's slimming back into your favourite jeans, trying the latest diet everyone's raving about or introducing a few simple swaps to improve your daily diet, we have everything from meal plans to quick tips and all sorts inbetween. Here are some of our most successful diets, but which will you be trying?
Good for people who: Are looking for a long-term healthy eating solution. Weight Watchers aims to introduce people to a better way of eating, without the need to count calories. It also encourages exercise and fits flexibly around your lifestyle.
Bad for people who: Are looking for a quick dramatic results. Weight Watchers isn't about starving yourself to look slim as soon as possible, it's more of a long-term healthy eating plan than a short-term diet. It can also be a bit confusing getting used to the points system to start with.
Good for people who: Have a large amount of weight to lose and want to lose it quickly. At £35-£40 it can be cheaper than your weekly food bill and you have the support of a counsellor throughout.
Bad for people who: Not eating normal foods while everyone around you does is very difficult to stick to, plus you might be left feeling lethargic and experiencing headaches at the beginning. You may also find it difficult to maintain the rapid weight loss you get used to at the beginning.
Good for people who: Don't want to give up their favourite foods and don't like calorie counting. No foods are banned, and you will be given lots of meal ideas depending on which plan you choose.
Bad for people who: Need to know how many calories different foods contain. You may struggle to keep weight off if you finish the programme and haven't learnt how many calories are in certain things.
Good for people who: Find sticking to a diet 7 days a week difficult. Just limiting your calories on two days and still seeing results can encourage you to keep with the plan for longer.
Bad for people who: Feel like they deserve a treat for the other 5 days of the week! Just because you're not on one of your two fast days, doesn't mean you can eat whatever you want. Plus by skipping meals you may feel dizzy, tired, irritable and prone to headaches.
Good for people who: Want to lose weight quickly. It also encourages followers to cut out processed carbohydrates and alcohol, which many find a great way to quit these things altogether.
Bad for people who: Aren't used to dieting. This is considered quite a 'hardcore' programme with side effects ranging from bad breath, dry mouth and tiredness to insomnia, nausea and constipation.
