Report says Mediterranean Diet is best in 2019

But according to new data released by U.S. News and World Report, one regimen reigns superior.

To determine the best diets, a panel of nutritionists and specialists in diabetes, heart health, and weight loss reviewed 41 diets, including the increasingly popular ketogenic, or keto, diet, Weight Watchers, and Atkins.

The Mediterranean diet took over the No. 1 spot from the DASH diet, which had maintained the top ranking for eight years in a row.

Another diet based on a healthy region of the world, the Mediterranean diet, holds the top overall spot this year for the first time in U.S. News and World Report's rankings.

Following a Mediterranean diet involves eating lots of plants, whole grains, healthy fats (such as olive oil) and lean proteins, and cutting back on processed foods, red meat and refined sugars. Interested in embarking on the diet for yourself?

As far as the rest of the ranking goes, the DASH diet finished in second, followed by the flexitarian diet (eating mostly plant-based foods but meat and other animal products in moderation), the MIND diet (a mix between DASH and Mediterranean targeted toward brain health) and Weight Watchers.

Once someone gets the flu, antiviral drugs can lessen symptoms and hasten recovery, and reduce complications and hospitalizations. On its website it says: "Seasonal influenza vaccine must be changed each year as the viruses naturally change over time".

Third for quick weight loss was the keto diet - very low-carb, high-fat.

The DASH diet, made up of low-sodium and healthful foods, was originally started by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) as a diet to help reduce blood pressure. It also limits red meat, salt, and candies. In fact, the WW Freestyle™ program has become the most effective and livable weight-management program in WW history, and it's proven to help people lose weight, sleep better, and feel happier.

Doctors say healthy weight loss is just one to two pounds per week.

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

"Every year we have a new fad or trend or a flashy diet but that trickery doesn't amount to much and you don't need something that's excited or really even complicated", Haupt said.

WW offers its members support online and is well-known for its in-person group meetings.
