Consumer Reports ranks diets based on satisfaction

WASHINGTON – To lose weight, it helps to like your diet.

According to Consumer Reports, all diets are not equal. The ranked diets include both commercial and do-it-yourself plans and they were rated based on overall satisfaction through specific categories, rather than being compared to each other.

The top commercial diet was Weight Watchers, with high satisfaction scores in two- thirds of the categories. Of the do-it-yourself diets, Myfitnesspal and SparkPeople both had high satisfaction ratings in half of the categories.

To find out more information about the ratings, check out the Consumer Reports website.
