#12 Best Diet for Weight Loss

What can I eat on this plan?Everything's still on the menu, including a list of ZeroPoint™ foods you don't have to track.

You must eliminate most foods and beverages that contain carbohydrates: bread, cereal, rice, pasta, beans, fruit, starchy vegetables, milk and alcohol. The Ketogenic diet limits you to only 20 to 40 grams of carbs per day. That's like having 1 slice of bread and a piece of fruit, or just over 100g of rice or pasta, as your only carb-containing food for the entire day.

LiveabilityBeyond more flexibility in your food choices, WW also helps you fit in more movement and teaches you healthy habits that can shift your mindset along the journey. With an approach that goes beyond food, you’ll see benefits both on and off the scale.The Keto diet is a highly restrictive food plan that puts your body into a state of physiologic ketosis. Much of the initial weight loss is due to water loss, which is immediately reversed when carbs are reintroduced into your diet.
Health risksWW is the #1 doctor recommended weight-loss plan according to an August 2016 survey of doctors.

There could be potential health risks for people with certain medical conditions following the Ketogenic diet, which has not been well studied in a variety of settings or with high risk populations.
