Question ID: 604714
I need a complete list of all online diet subscription services,
complete with the URLs where I can sign up, how much each one of them
costs, who, if any personality is behind the diet, and some general
descriptive information about what the diet is about.

For example, an entry for South Beach Diet would be something like:

- South Beach Diet
- $29.95 for first 8 weeks, $6.95 for each month thereafter
- by Dr. Arther Agatston
- focuses on eliminating bad carbs and eating good carbs

There are at least 10 of these out there, but there are probably more
than that.  I am not interested about supplements, diet pills, diet
shakes or anything of the sort; only online diet programs.

Good places to research are:

- who is advertising on google adwords
- regular google search
- diet forums
- book titles on amazon and then search for those diets online

There are at least 10 of these that I can think of, but I need you to
find all of them that are online.

Rresearchers shy away from questions with the word "All" in them. 

How many online diet subscription services are you expecting as a
satisfactory answer?
