There are people who have health and weight loss goals in life and they seem ready every time to try something new so long as it works. But there’s one key thing to remember: There is no one-diet-fits-all plan (though that would make things easy). They have to find one that fits their lifestyle so they actually stick to it. With that in mind, here are the top diet plans that actually work. All they have to do is pick one and grab a fork.

Taco Diet:

The Taco Cleanse promises weight loss from eating one of your favorite foods exclusively, and you can actually get a decent amount of nutritional variety because, well, you can put anything in a taco. It’s only supposed to last for 30 days though going at it for only a week is cool, too and that’s why this diet can help you hit a reset button (you shouldn’t be using it as a full-time nutrition plan.) Plus, a lot of the recipes are actually vegan, so you’ll typically be reaching for healthy ingredients over processed ones.

Disassociated Diet:

This plan isn’t a new one: the disassociated diet was invented in 1911, but thanks to the popularity of “food science,” (aka really looking at how different foods play with others), it’s seen a resurgence. If you follow it, the main rule is not to combine acidic foods (think meats, fish, dairy) with alkaline ones (legumes, vegetables, nuts). Why? It’ll reportedly be easier on your digestive system, which in turn helps boost weight loss results (though, TBH, the science behind this is controversial. Of course, you’ll also load up on plenty of fruits and veggies, and since those are a part of any healthy diet, that certainly plays a role in any success you’ll see.

Wild Diet:

The concept behind this diet is pretty simple: ditch all processed foods for bites that come just as nature made them. Proponents of the plan dig in to foods like wild salmon, fresh veggies, local eggs and, of course, chocolate (because what is life without chocolate?) The creator of these nutrition guidelines promises that if you avoid artificial ingredients you’ll be able to “feast all day, yet stay lean and healthy.”

Mediterranean Diet:

The French and Italians have something right: fruits and veggies, whole grains, nuts, fish, and lots of olive oil is a tasty and slimming way of noshing. There searchers realized the plan helped dieters lose an average of 8.5 pounds. But it’s not magic you have to cut calorie, exercise and stick with it for more than six months for the best results, the research found. So, if you’re going to go for it, put away the entire bottle of vino and pour yourself a sensible glass instead.

TLC Diet:

This diet helps lowering your cholesterol and reducing your risk of heart disease especially if you have risk factors like being a woman who is 55 or older, have a family history, or have high blood pressure.
