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

For overall healthy eating, the best diet plan is the Mediterranean diet, according to U.S. News & World Report's annual diet review.

The diet is associated with lower rates of diabetes and heart health. The 2019 runner up for weight loss was the Volumetrics Diet, with Jenny Craig taking the number two commercial diet spot. It consists of plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, healthy fats like those found in olive oil and fatty fish like salmon and sardines, and nuts and seeds.

The Dukan Diet, which promotes a strict, high-protein way of eating, took last place for 2019.
