Picking the right diet can be confusing when they all promise great results.

Which diets really deliver?

U.S. News and World Reports put together a panel of medical and health experts to study popular diets. Here's a look at the top 5 diets they say are not only safe, but help you lose weight at a healthy pace:

  • DASH: A government endorsed diet that is low sodium. Health experts say it helps lower blood pressure, diabetes and heart disease risk.
  • The mediterranean diet: A diet featuring a lot of fish, olive oil and veggies.
  • The TLC diet: A low-fat diet.
  • Weight Watchers: A program where you can eat any food, but you have to follow a points system.
  • The Mayo Clinic Diet: A diet that focuses on long-term weight management and overall health.
