These Are the 5 Best Diets for 2019, According to Experts

The best overall diet in the 2019 U.S. News & World Report annual rankings is the perennial favorite - the Mediterranean diet, which focuses on produce, especially berries, whole grains, nuts and other healthy fats like olive oil and fish - salmon being a nutrient-loaded favorite. It also won best diet for healthy eating, easiest diet to follow, best diet for diabetes, best heart-healthy diet, and best plant-based diet, so it's really an all-around victor. For 2019, the Mediterranean diet took home the top award. 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. The campaign reflects WW's strategic evolution to build on its leading position in weight management, helping people to achieve their weight loss goals, while also delivering a more holistic platform for health and wellness, including innovations around nutrition, activity, mindset, inspiration and community.

Experts ranked the diet poorly in heart-health, ease of use, and overall impact on health.

In addition to lowering blood pressure, research suggests the DASH diet may help reduce the risk of diabetes and may also help fight depression. 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.

In third place, is something new called the Flexitarian Diet. The diet was promoted by dietitian Dawn Jackson Blatner in a 2009 book that says you can reap the benefits of a plant-heavy diet even if you eat meat occasionally, according to U.S. News and World Report. 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.
