Full Review of the Personality Type Diet

Are you outgoing or shy? Are you confident or self-conscious? According to the Personality Diet, your personality says a lot about the foods you eat and the diet plan you should be following. To begin the Personality diet, you are required to fill out a lengthy 70-question 'personality' questionnaire. Depending on if you are an 'eating personality', 'exercise personality', or 'coping personality' your diet plan will be geared specifically to meet your unique personal needs. Once you find out your personality type, you are required to subscribe to eDiets.com services to get your personal meal plan and weight loss diet.

As research, I personally took the quiz, and not only was it extremely long (70 questions!) but some of the questions were difficult to answer. I like quizzes and I'd like to believe that I have unique dieting needs, but something tells me this diet is a bit of a sham. Diets based on our personality - please! What's next, diets based on our shoe size? This is just another weight loss diet that has chosen an interesting niche to successfully put a unique spin on dieting.

Average weight loss: 1 - 2 lbs. per week.
