The best overall diets for 2019

Should You Try a Meat Based Diet in 2019

There are so many to choose from, but according to the U.S. World News Report, the best of 2019 is the Mediterranean Diet.

To follow the Mediterranean diet, one must eat a mostly plant-based diet of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes and nuts. The diet has always been linked to many health benefits, including lower risks of cancer and heart disease, better kidney health and a healthier gut. Those who follow this diet can also expect an increase in bone and heart health and a fair amount of healthy weight loss.

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

Meanwhile, the Nordic diet - a plant-focused plan that borrows from the Scandinavian tradition - made its first appearance on the list, at number nine.

Here are the other diets that topped the list.

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

The Mediterranean Diet won out, because judges felt it was effective, affordable and easy to stick with.

The flexitarian diet encourages people to try alternative meat options, like tofu, but leaves room for flexibility if you can't quite fully give up meat.

"The top diets promote eating the foods that we've been told to eat, like whole grains, fruits and veggies, and going easy on sugar and saturated fat", she added.

The Mediterranean-DASH Intervention for Neurodegenerative Delay (MIND) diet, ranked five a year ago, is a hybrid of the top-rated DASH and Mediterranean diets.
