Somersizing 

How this diet works:  

Suzanne Somers, the actress, promotes the food-combining plan she calls Somersizing, which eliminates bad ingredients such as sugar and white flour. The plan recommends eating fruits alone on an empty stomach, eating proteins and fats with vegetables and without carbohydrates, and eating carbohydrates with vegetables and without fat. 

Good points:

There is no need to monitor portions, calories or grams of fat. Healthful fruits and vegetables are encouraged. Reducing intake of sugar and refined foods will help increase the consumption of more healthful nutrients. The plan emphasizes frequent small meals and incorporates ways to 'splurge' and enjoy your favorite foods without losing control completely. 

Bad points:

It works by decreasing the calorie consumption. Some people may find following the strict food-combining regimen difficult.
