Mediterranean diet named No. 1 eating plan for 2019

For overall healthy eating, the best diet plan is the Mediterranean diet, according to U.S. News & World Report's annual diet review. While fad diets will come and go, there are some tried-and true healthy eating plans that can help get you on the right track. The Mediterranean diet was also ranked high in multiple categories including: Easiest Diets to Follow, Best Diets for Healthy Eating, Best Diets for Diabetes, and Best Diets for Hearth Health. This year a panel of 23 experts scored 41 diets based on summaries of each diet from U.S. News and recent research.

A number of popular diets, including the keto diet, Dukan diet, and the Whole30 diet received some of the lowest rankings on U.S. News' list.

"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.

But what eating plan is actually the healthiest? Even those who didn't stick to the diet perfectly but followed it "moderately well" reduced their risk of Alzheimer's by about a third, the researchers found.

"Sometimes the best ways are the old, simple ways", Peick says.

Red meat and sugary foods are very limited, but adding red wine is alright in moderation.

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.

Developed by researchers at the National Institutes of Health, the DASH diet focuses on reducing high blood pressure with low-sodium foods, which include vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low-fat dairy and lean proteins.

Lifestyle diets, such as the Mayo Clinic diet and MIND diet, are healthier and more sustainable than weight-loss plans such as the Ketogenic or Atkins diet are, the panelists concluded.
