There’s a list of diets at health.usnews.com listing 20 different diets sorted by how healthy they are according to “professionals”. Of course Atkins and Paleo are the last two on the list: professionals say these diets are the works of satan.
Thing is, they have an open voting system with the question “Did this diet work for you?“. People have answered a solid “no” for 17 of the 20 diets. Only 3 diets actually worked, and I reckon you’ve already guessed where this is heading. Yes, they have voted Paleo the best, with Atkins and “weight watchers diet” tied closely at second place. Go there and check out the numbers for yourselves.
