One of the highest rated weight loss plans in U.S. News & World Report's recent rankings of diets, the South Beach diet has been used by celebrities like Bette Davis because of its safe, fast results. The company reports that you can lose eight to 13 pounds in the first two weeks. Get the skinny here.

Created by cardiologist Arthur Agatston, M.D., the South Beach Diet emphasizes learning to lose weight and keep it off with healthy carbohydrates and fats. It's a phased plan to jump-start weight loss, curb cravings and boost your health.
