Starting a diet and sticking with it can be extremely hard.  A lot of people choose diets that that contains foods that they just plain do not like.  This is a complete set up for failure.  Unless you are extremely discipline and learn to like these foods over time.  You will not stick to the diet.

You need to look at the meals plans to see if the majority of foods that you will be eating are to your liking.  One of the most flexible diet plans out there is called the Abs Diet.  The Abs Diet uses what they call their power foods.  These are the foods that you make your meals from.

Almonds and Nuts eat with the skins on.
Beans and Legumes
Spinach and Green Vegetables

Dairy: Milk, Yogurt, Cheese etc…  They should be low fat.
Instant Oatmeal: Unsweetened, unflavored
Turkey or lean meats such as Chicken

Peanut Butter – Make sure it is sugar free and natural.
Olive Oil
Whole-Grain Breads and Cereals
Extra-Protein – Whey recommended
Raspberries and Berries (good antioxidants)

You notice the “ABS DIET POWER?”  I do not know if that is just a marketing ploy or just an acronym to help you remember the foods.  To give you an idea of what a typical day might look like I prepared a sample meals for a typical day.
