U.S. News and World Report is out with its 2019 list of Best Diets, with Weight Watchers once again taking the the number one spot for the Best Diet for Weight Loss as well as the top spot for Best Commercial Diet.

Rich in low-starch vegetables, fruit, healthy fats (mostly from olives and olive oil), nuts, seeds, whole grains, legumes, and fish, the Mediterranean diet eschews simple sugars and refined starches and is low in red meat. It also won best diet for healthy eating, easiest diet to follow, best diet for diabetes, best heart-healthy diet, and best plant-based diet, so it's really an all-around victor. This year a panel of 23 experts scored 41 diets based on summaries of each diet from U.S. News and recent research. "It reinforces that everything we've been told about dieting and weight loss does remain true".

The MIND Diet combines many elements of two other popular nutrition plans which have been proven to benefit heart health: the Mediterranean diet and the DASH diet.

But what eating plan is actually the healthiest?

FA asks Watford captain Deeney to explain post-match comments
Defeat for Wolves at home to Crystal Palace means Watford climb to eighth with a point, while Bournemouth stay 12th. WATFORD boss Javi Gracia has hailed "Big Ben" Foster after the goalkeeper's second-half heroics at Bournemouth.

The Dukan Diet, which promotes a strict, high-protein way of eating, took last place for 2019.

The DASH diet was second - that's Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension.

A 2018 study found the DASH diet can reduce the risk of depression later in life. In fact, the diet is safe for most people, including children and older people.

"You really want something to be a lifestyle change so that you can handle it if you have kids or you live alone and I think this one really checks all those boxes", registered dietitian Amy Peick says. It also limits red meat, salt, and candies. 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.

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?
