There is no one-size-fits-all weight loss program. I know – I’ve tried a number of them. I’ve certainly had more success with some and less success with others. I have a hard time following a low-carb diet, like keto, whereas a Whole30 plan fits my lifestyle so much better. My mother, on the other hand, really benefited from the structured program of Weight Watchers and has kept her weight off for over ten years! That’s why we want to review the most popular weight loss programs for women, so you can determine which might be best for you.

Let’s take a look at the most popular weight loss programs for women so we can help you find the best one for you.
1. Ketogenic Diet
The keto diet is a well-known low-carb diet that has become popular in the last few years. The idea is that you will change your body’s energy source from using carbohydrates to burning fat. When you limit your carb intake, your body begins producing ketones. This metabolic state forces your body to rapidly burn fat, causing you to lose weight.
The keto diet has also been linked to other beneficial health results, like reversing type-2 diabetes, lowering blood sugar levels, and reducing the risk of heart disease. If this one sounds like it’s right for you, get started with these low-carb, keto-friendly snacks and avoid these 3 common mistakes keto dieters make.
The Whole30 diet isn’t actually intended to be used for weight loss, but many users have experienced rapid weight loss just by changing up their diet. The program is a 30-day clean eating initiative that removes dairy, grains, sugar, legumes, and alcohol from your diet. This creates natural, sustainable energy sources that revitalize your body and gives you more energy.
The Whole30 diet has become so popular that most people continue (at least part of the time) after the 30 days are up. We have a really nice 7-day plan that will get you jump-started into the first week of the program. From there, try some of our favorite slow cooker recipes that take the time commitment out of being healthy.
3. Weight Watchers
Weight Watchers is a great program for those looking for a little bit more structure. You can eat anything you want – carbs, fats, calories – without any restrictions. All you need to do is tally your points every day. Stay under your weekly points goal, and you’re almost guaranteed to lose weight. Weight Watchers has been around for so long that there’s a wealth of resources when it comes to recipes and community support.
If something really structured sounds like it’s up your alley, start with our 7-day Weight Watchers menu plan.
