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

The Mediterranean diet took over the No. 1 spot from the DASH diet, which had maintained the top ranking for eight years in a row.

The diet is associated with lower rates of diabetes and heart health.

The Mediterranean diet came out on top. In fact, the diet is safe for most people, including children and older people.

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

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. The trendy ketogenic diet (also known as the keto diet), which is very high in fats but low in carbohydrates, moved up to the second-best plan for weight loss.

The NHLBI publishes free guides on the plan so you can see if it is right for you.

A 2018 study found the DASH diet can reduce the risk of depression later in life.

The eating plan features a wide variety of options, including fruits and vegetables, whole grains, nuts, poultry, and fish. 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. The diet was promoted by dietitian Dawn Jackson Blatner in a 2009 book that says you can reap the benefits of a plant-heavy diet even if you eat meat occasionally, according to U.S. News and World Report.

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

The diet emphasizes healthy food sources, including fruits, vegetables, whole grains, skinless poultry and fish, and nuts and legumes.

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.

That doesn't sound so bad, but why was it named the best of the bunch?

The WW Freestyle program was launched in 2017 and builds off the company's signature SmartPoints system, which assigns every food and beverage a point value, based on its nutrition. The plan also involves in-person meetings or online chats created to support those in the program and keep them accountable.
