    There are a number of diet plans available which you can select depending upon the kind of weight loss you want. These diet plans do not put you on a strict diet and ban you from eating the food of your choice, but guide you to eat want you want in a healthier way.

    Different types of diet plans are available, like the Atkins diet, Carbohydrate Addicts, Protein Power, the Zone diet, and all other high-protein low-carb diet plans. These diet plans serve different purposes, so you should carefully select the one that is good for you. You should always consult your doctor before selecting a diet plan.

    The Atkins diet is not a one-diet plan, but a system to provide a series of dietary phases through which the majority will pass sequentially, as they successfully lose their excess weight. Then there is another plan, called Protein Power, which is a guide to better health and weight loss through diet, nutrition, supplements, and exercise. Sugar busters focuses on cutting sugar to trim fat.

    Modulating insulin is the key to the sugar busters diet plan, which says that by controlling the intake of sugar, insulin secretion can be controlled. Carbohydrates in an unrefined form, such as fruits, green vegetables, dried beans and whole grains, require further digestive alteration before absorption, thus modulating insulin secretion, which results in lower average insulin levels and less fat synthesis, storage and weight gain.

    Another plan, which is the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD), is a strict grain-free, lactose-free, and sucrose-free dietary regimen intended for those suffering from Crohn's Disease, Ulcerative Colitis, Celiac Disease, Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) and Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).

    All these plans tell you to eat your favorite meat, fish, poultry, cheese, cream, butter and eggs, and green leafy vegetables: cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, lettuce, and so on. It is advisable to cut out some foods, such as sugar and cereals, but include small amounts in your menus and take a controlled diet.

    lots of cereals contain little to no carbs, so try that. or maybe some oatmeal/granola with yogurt and fruit. keep in mind that not all carbs are 'bad'.
