Report: Jenny Craig Tops List of Best Diets

Tim Boyle/Getty Images(YONKERS, N.Y.) -- Jenny Craig reigns queen of popular diets, according to a new report from Consumer Reports Health.

Researchers based the overall scores on adherence to the 2010 U.S. Dietary Guidelines and results of published randomized clinical studies that analyzed the short- and long-term weight loss and drop-out rates of seven popular diets.

Jenny Craig topped the list with 85 points.  Slim-Fast came in second with 63 points and Weight Watchers, a popular diet for many Americans, came in third with 57 points.

"We were pleased to be rated as Consumer Reports' best-rated diet," Jenny Craig CEO Patti Larchet said in a statement.  "This news confirms what we have always known: that Jenny Craig's clinically proven, comprehensive approach to weight management works."

The Jenny Craig diet offers its own brand of food, including single-serving entrees, snacks and desserts, which are sent to the dieters' homes.  Prices vary, but the cost of the food can range between $400 and $600 per month.  The company also offers weekly counseling sessions in-person or by phone.

Here are the seven popular diets ranked by Consumer Reports Health:

1. Jenny Craig
2. Slim-Fast
3. Weight Watchers
4. Zone
5. Ornish
6. Atkins
7. NutriSystem
