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

But according to new data released by U.S. News and World Report, one regimen reigns superior.

The DASH (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) diet was created to help manage blood pressure, but experts say it has many overall health benefits, helping it nab the number 2 spot on the best overall diets list.

The ketogenic, or keto, diet, which focuses on high-fat, low carbohydrate eating, jumped 11 spots to tie for the No. 2 ranking for Best Fast Weight Loss, showing the diet works for weight loss but may not be sustainable or healthy, according to Haupt. 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. "It reinforces that everything we've been told about dieting and weight loss does remain true". 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. In fact, the diet is safe for most people, including children and older people.

"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.

Research has shown that people in Mediterranean countries tend to live longer and have lower instances of cancer and cardiovascular disease, compared to other populations around the world.

"Every year we have a new fad or trend or a flashy diet but that trickery doesn't amount to much and you don't need something that's excited or really even complicated", Haupt said. You can occasionally add eggs, chicken or fish. Eating a diet that's mostly vegetarian while also allowing for an occasional burger or steak to satisfy a craving can help with weight management and improve overall health, Blatner says.

Designed by researchers from the Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, the aptly named MIND diet was developed specifically for brain health.

The eating plan features a wide variety of options, including fruits and vegetables, whole grains, nuts, poultry, and fish.

Weight Watchers - now called WW - was fourth.

Doctors say healthy weight loss is just one to two pounds per week.

Lack of scientific evidence for health benefits and severe restriction of foods - including certain healthy foods - were listed as reasons for low scores.
