Let’s face it, weight loss is not an easy goal to accomplish. When you decide to embark on a weight loss journey, you’re going to wonder things such as what the best diet for weight loss is, whether keto weight loss works, healthy food recipes and how to live a healthy lifestyle that lasts.
Thousands of bloggers and websites claim to be dedicated to helping you sort through this information to figure out what works for you — but where do you even start?
We compiled a list of the top 100 weight loss bloggers for 2020 — the people who built websites dedicated to sharing everything from healthy recipes, to the best weight loss diets, to keto information, to fitness, to healthy living and wellness and so much more.
The bloggers found here are the best in the business. They are people who know their stuff, have tens of thousands of followers, and who literally have been there, done that. They all bring their own unique flare, but the message remains consistent with each one:
Lasting weight loss CAN be achieved through a combination of proper diet, exercise, an overall healthy lifestyle and a commitment to taking small steps to achieve lasting success.

That’s because Christina believes that any illness can be treated (and prevented) through healthy eating and a wholesome lifestyle. Christina shares that belief with her readers by providing affordable meal plans and healthy recipes.

Now, years later, she’s still fit and sharing her story on her blog and in her books through fitness routines and recipes. She even hosts weight loss challenges (with cash prizes) to really cheer people on and give them incentives to keep going.

Fast-forward to today and she’s the mom of two little ones and found her self-confidence along the way.
