Most diets work, you’ll hear people mention they lost 10 pounds on the south beach diet, or 20 pounds on adkins diet, or 15 pounds on the Keto diet. The reason most diets work is because they have the same thing in common, they limit bad carbs, like potatoes, breads, pastas, candy and alcohol. Any time you limit substances that elevate blood sugar levels, you’re going to lose weight as a result. With that being said, try any and every diet if you like and see which one suits you best.
