Mediterranean Diet Named Best Diet for 2019

If you've ever been confused about what to eat, you're definitely not alone.

The Mediterranean diet taking the top spot should come as no surprise.

This is the second year in a row the U.S. World News Report chose Mediterranean as the best diet of the year.

A plant-based diet that encourages eating like the Vikings did has made it for the first time onto the U.S. News and World Report's annual diet rankings. In the latest rankings, the Mediterranean diet also took the titles of best diet for healthy eating, diabetes and heart health, the easiest diet to follow and the best plant-based diet. The trendy ketogenic diet (also known as the keto diet), which is very high in fats but low in carbohydrates, moved up to the second-best plan for weight loss. You can have red wine in moderation if you'd like, but you must get plenty of exercise and enjoy meals with family and friends.

The Mediterranean diet has been linked to increased longevity and a decreased risk of chronic illnesses, the report said.

The Mediterranean diet is an eating pattern that emulates how people in the Mediterranean region have traditionally eaten, with a focus on foods like olive oil, fish and vegetables.

"I wish though, that we weren't so obsessed with weight loss and diets, per se".

And no, unfortunately, there is still no magic fix for losing weight, but there are certain diets that have been shown to be more successful. The most successful diet is one that you can stick to.

WW's Freestyle program applies points values to foods, with higher points for foods high in saturated fats and sugars, and lower points for foods with high levels of protein.

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.

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