Best Diet of 2019? Dieticians choose Mediterranean

Reducing salt consumption has lasting health benefits

The Mediterranean diet was named the best eating plan for 2019, according to an annual ranking by U.S. News and World Report published Wednesday.

The heart-healthy diet is rich in fruits, vegetables, fish and whole grains, along with healthy fats like olive oil, nuts and avocados. 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. The Mediterranean diet has also been associated with a reduced risk of cancer and Parkinson's and Alzheimer's diseases.

Many people are ditching the cookies and candies in the new year because it's diet season.

We are just two days into 2019, but already the best diet of the year has been named.

When a person fills their diet with the kinds of fresh, unprocessed foods found in the Mediterranean diet, they may lose weight, improve their heart health, and prevent diabetes, according to US News.

The plan focuses on fruit, vegetables, whole grain, lean protein and low-fat dairy and eliminates foods high in fat and sugar-sweetened drinks and candies, according to U.S. News and World Report.

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.

In the book, Blatner says you don't have to cut out meat entirely to reap the health benefits of a vegetarian diet. "The diet also recommends eating fish at least twice a week and there's a lot of packaged fish like salmon that are easy to cook and eat". 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.

Among the diet's requirements is eating three servings of whole grains, a salad and another vegetable daily, as well as a single glass of wine if desired.

The program, which is backed by Oprah Winfrey and recently signed on Kate Hudson as an ambassador, rebranded in 2018 with a new name, WW, and a focus on wellness.
