The last time Consumer Reports rated diets four years ago, Volumetrics won. It’s now part of Jenny Craig.

The Atkins diet finished last again, as it has in the previous two surveys.

    Jenny is great, but once you are off the food you are doomed. They do not teach you to eat.

    At the end of the program they do slowly teach you how to eat on your own and have a maintenance program to monitor your weight as you learn
