Best Weight Loss Programs and Diets of 2024

US News and World Report: How They Compare to Skinny Seattle

We’re a few weeks into the new year and hopefully, if your resolutions are coming to fruition, the new you! But, since you’re reading my blog and exploring my website, I’m guessing you’re still not quite where you want to be. That’s ok! Don’t be so hard on yourself. It might not be your fault. It might be more than just a lack of discipline and willpower – it might be your hormones and metabolism that are slowing you down and preventing you from achieving the results you desire.


I know what you’re thinking… if I’ve failed at dieting in the past or lost the weight only to regain it back, why should I believe I’d be successful in the Skinny Seattle program? What makes it so different from anything else?

Great question! That’s why I decided to put the Skinny Seattle program side by side with some of the other diet programs out there so you can make an informed decision as to which one might be best for you. Read on to find out how the Skinny Seattle program compares to the U.S. News and World Report’s highest-rated weight loss programs and diets for 2024. We’ll dig deep into the top contenders, dissect their methodologies, and explore the pros and cons of each, empowering you to make the best decision for your weight loss journey.

First, let’s start with the Skinny Seattle Program:

  1. Skinny Seattle

Overview: The Skinny Seattle program is an all-natural approach to sustainable weight loss. We start with comprehensive metabolic lab testing to identify someone’s metabolic and hormonal roadblocks that are preventing them from losing weight. From there, we recommend all-natural supplements that will help reboot your metabolism. They don’t have appetite suppressants, stimulants, or hormones. They are designed to help your metabolism to reboot, but not intended to be necessary for lifetime success. From there, we provide a detailed plan for your success and coach you through every step of the way so you know how to: 1. Lose weight 2. Keep it off/sustain your results for a lifetime 3. Still enjoy the foods you like. There are no prepackaged foods. It’s all foods you can easily find at any grocery store and cook for the entire family.


  • Healthy benefits: Beyond weight, the Skinny Seattle program is designed to lower and improve high-risk lab markers such as A1c, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, high triglycerides, type 2 diabetes, and digestion, and can even help with sleep apnea.
  • You’ll see safe and rapid weight loss (expect to lose approximately 10% of your body weight in the first 30-40 days)
  • We’re a small local business with passionate providers with a vested interest in helping you reach your goals and stay accountable
  • Comprehensive lab testing for optimal and individualized weight loss results.


  • Requires Meal Planning: The Skinny Seattle program is designed to teach you how to lose weight and keep it off with real foods. BUT- no prepackaged foods means you’ll need to shop at the grocery store. In the beginning, until things become more routine, you may need to invest time in meal planning and preparation.
  1. The Mediterranean Diet:

Overview: The Mediterranean Diet continues to reign supreme as one of the most well-rounded and sustainable approaches to overall health. Emphasizing whole foods such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts, seeds, and olive oil, this diet is rich in heart-healthy fats, fiber, and antioxidants.


  • Health Benefits: Beyond weight loss, the Mediterranean Diet has numerous health benefits, including reduced risk of heart disease, stroke, and certain cancers.
  • Sustainability: With its emphasis on delicious and flavorful foods, the Mediterranean Diet is highly sustainable and enjoyable for long-term adherence.


  • No personalization. No accountability and support in case you hit stalls or gains.
  • Slow weight loss or no weight loss. The Mediterranean diet is a healthy way of eating, not necessarily a weight loss program.
  1. DASH Diet:

Overview: Designed to lower blood pressure and promote heart health, the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) Diet has gained recognition for its effectiveness in aiding weight loss. The DASH Diet encourages the consumption of fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and whole grains while limiting sodium intake.


  • Heart Health: The DASH Diet’s emphasis on nutrient-rich foods contributes to lower blood pressure and improved cardiovascular health.


  • Sodium Restriction: Adherents may find it challenging to reduce sodium intake, especially when dining out or consuming processed foods.
  •  Lack of Structure: Some individuals may struggle with the lack of specific guidelines or meal plans, requiring additional implementation support.
  • Little to no weight loss: just because a food is healthy, doesn’t mean it supports a weight loss goal.
  1. WW (Weight Watchers):


WW (formerly Weight Watchers) continues to be a popular choice for individuals seeking a flexible program. WW operates on a points-based system, assigning values to foods based on their nutritional content and encouraging members to make healthier choices.


  • Flexibility: WW offers flexibility in food choices, allowing members to enjoy their favorite foods while still making progress toward their weight loss goals.


  • Food Sensitivities: WW allows all foods, but doesn’t help you address foods that you might have a sensitivity too so you may still feel fatigued, bloat cravings, and hunger.
  • Tracking Requirements: Adherents must track their food intake and points diligently, which can be time-consuming and tedious for some.
  1. The Flexitarian Diet:

Overview: Combining the words “flexible” and “vegetarian,” the Flexitarian Diet offers a plant-centric approach to weight loss and improved health. While not strictly vegetarian, this diet encourages the consumption of mostly plant-based foods while allowing for occasional meat and animal products.


  • Plant-Based Emphasis: The Flexitarian Diet promotes the consumption of nutrient-rich plant foods, which are associated with numerous health benefits. Still, just there are plenty of vegetarian junk foods on the market, so it might not be helpful for weight loss.


  • Potential Nutrient Gaps: If you follow this program you must be mindful of meeting your nutritional needs, particularly for protein, iron, and B vitamins.

As you can see, there is nothing quite like Skinny Seattle. From the one-on-one coaching and support to the comprehensive metabolic and hormonal testing, other diet programs simply can’t compete. BUT you need to consider factors such as dietary preferences, lifestyle, and commitment to yourself so you can choose the best weight loss program to support your journey toward a healthier and happier life. Remember, the key to success lies not in quick fixes or drastic measures but in making informed choices and embracing sustainable habits for long-term well-being.
