If you're thinking about trying a dieting program, there's a long list of options.

To name a few: Atkins, Jenny Craig, Rosemary Conley and Biggest Loser. All of those name-brand diets, along with about six others, were part of a study published in The Journal of the American Medical Association.

And according to the results, when it comes to weight loss, there's not much of a difference in which brand you choose, even though the brands differed in type of diet — whether that be low carb, low fat or low glycemic index. 

To get the results, researchers compared 48 past clinical trials — including more than 7,000 people on the different diets. Some included exercising in the plan, and some participants had access to behavioral counseling.
