Best Diets Overall

U.S. News evaluated and ranked the 41 diets below with input from a panel of health experts. To be top-rated, a diet had to be relatively easy to follow, nutritious, safe, effective for weight loss, and protective against diabetes and heart disease. The Mediterranean diet took the top spot, while the government-endorsed DASH diet, which stands for Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension, came in second.

DIETS COME AND GO, teasing and tempting with dreams of that elusive hot body. Eat what you want! Pounds melt away overnight! No one approach is best for everyone. Regardless of the “program” you are on, be it the “See Food and eat it” approach or Paleo, it is your “Dietary Approach” and affects your health and how you look and feel for better or worse.

To create the latest edition of the rankings, U.S. News editors and reporters spent months winnowing potential additions to our diet roster and then mining medical journals, government reports, and other resources to create in-depth profiles for those that made the cut.

Each profile explains how the diet works, determines whether its claims add up or fall short, scrutinizes it for possible health risks – and reveals what it’s like to live on the diet, not just read about it.

To see the list, and how your favorite diet is ranked, use the link below. A very helpful resource. Your diet is one of the important factors of a healthy lifestyle. A healthy lifestyle also includes fitness/exercise/activities, mental/emotional/spiritual, and simply enjoying life, family, friends, and pets!

Now in its ninth year, Best Diets delivers the facts about and ranks 41 diets on a range of levels, from their heart healthiness to their likelihood to help you lose weight.
