For me, it's all about moderation. I don't kick things out of my diet, like carbs. But I'm not going to eat fast food - Bobby Flay

When it comes to losing weight there is no shortage of products, diet plans, or advice out there to confuse you.

But then there's the DASH diet, rated #1 in the '2011 Best Diet rankings' published by U.S. News & World Report. Essentially 22 nutrition experts spent six months researching some of the most popular and controversial diets around.

The DASH diet allows you make choices based on your preferences. It’s a diet filled with fruits and vegetables, low-fat dairy products, fish, poultry, and whole grains. It is also high in fiber, potassium, calcium, magnesium and low in fat.

We commend you on your decision to begin a weight loss program. But remember there is no quick fix. Most people can lose weight on almost any diet plan that restricts calories, at least in the short term, however it's incredibly difficult to maintain that weight loss permanently.

Research shows that the people who keep weight off for the long term are those who incorporate healthy eating habits, exercise, and the support of friends and family into their lifestyle. And we strongly recommend that you consult with your physician before starting any diet and/or exercise program.
