he CDC estimates that over 70% of the U.S. population is overweight or obese, making it one of the most common health conditions in the country. Unfortunately, excess body fat is not only a cosmetic issue but also a significant risk factor for developing chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer’s, Type 2 diabetes and autoimmune conditions.

Many people recognize that risk and try different diets hoping to lose weight quickly and sustainably. Unfortunately, the dietary advice given by well-meaning healthcare professionals — including many nutritionists and dietitians — is often misguided or just plain wrong.

Here are 12 things good weight loss diets have in common:

1. Improves insulin and leptin sensitivity.
2. Helps maintain healthy blood sugar levels.
3. Is devoid of inflammatory foods and toxins
4. Provides enough protein to help you build and maintain lean muscle tissue.
5. Is high in healthy fats (to keep you satiated and fueled).
6. Has ample amounts of highly-bioavailable and readily-absorbable micronutrients.
7. Relies predominantly on whole foods.
8. Doesn’t rely on expensive weight-loss shakes or prepared meals.
9. Can be sustained for the rest of your life.
10. Doesn’t require calorie counting or portion control.
11. Mimics how humans have eaten for millions of years.
12. Doesn’t make you feel hungry (or “hangry”) between meals.

My four favorite weight loss diets are:

1. Carnivore Diet
2. Traditional Ketogenic Diet
3. Animal-Based Diet
4. Paleolithic Diet
