Forget keto - the Mediterranean diet was just named the best for 2019

Should You Try a Meat Based Diet in 2019

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. The Mediterranean diet has also been associated with a reduced risk of cancer and Parkinson's and Alzheimer's diseases. 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. Those two diets tied for the 38th spot out of 41 diet plans reviewed by U.S. News and World Report's panel of medical experts.

Although the popular Keto diet ranked high for fast weight loss, it landed way down on the Best Diets list - tying for number 38.

"These diets that are consistently top performers are scoring well, from nutrition to helpfulness, ease, ability to help prevent chronic conditions and more", Haupt said.

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". Thanks to science, times have certainly changed since your parents tried these old-school (though often misguided) diet tips.
