Mediterranean Diet Named Best Diet for 2019

Research has shown that people in Mediterranean countries tend to live longer and have lower instances of cancer and cardiovascular disease, compared to other populations around the world.

To follow the Mediterranean diet, one must eat a mostly plant-based diet of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes and nuts.

Meanwhile, the Nordic diet - a plant-focused plan that borrows from the Scandinavian tradition - made its first appearance on the list, at number nine. What they found is that there's one that stands out above the rest for being easy to follow, safe, nutritious, effective for weight loss, and great for preventing lifestyle-related diseases like heart disease and diabetes.

The DASH diet was second - that's Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension.

The MIND Diet combines many elements of two other popular nutrition plans which have been proven to benefit heart health: the Mediterranean diet and the DASH diet.

While no single diet is best for everyone, U.S. News' expert rankings are meant to promote the eating styles most likely to improve health and steer people away from misguided diet plans - like the last-place Dukan diet, a restrictive, high-protein system.

Third for quick weight loss was the keto diet - very low-carb, high-fat. The term was coined by registered dietitian Dawn Jackson Blatner in her book "The Flexitarian Diet: The Mostly Vegetarian Way to Lose Weight, Be Healthier, Prevent Disease and Add Years to Your Life".

The eating plan features a wide variety of options, including fruits and vegetables, whole grains, nuts, poultry, and fish.

"On these types of diets, you often don't learn how to manage holidays, stressful days or special occasions".

Weight Watchers ranked in the top five for best diets overall and also obtained the No. 1 rankings for Best Commercial Diet and Best Weight Loss Diet for 2019. The plan also involves in-person meetings or online chats created to support those in the program and keep them accountable.
