Nordic diet makes its way on best diets for 2019 list

Nordic diet makes its way on best diets for 2019 list

To follow the Mediterranean diet, one must eat a mostly plant-based diet of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes and nuts. Because of new research regarding the Mediterranean diet, such as findings that it could lower the risk of dementia and aggressive prostate cancer, it took the lead for 2019.

The diet is associated with lower rates of diabetes and heart health. Those two diets tied for the 38th spot out of 41 diet plans reviewed by U.S. News and World Report's panel of medical experts.

The concept of the Mediterranean diet comes from the countries that border the Mediterranean sea, where people historically ate mainly produce, nuts, and healthy fats.

Although the popular Keto diet ranked high for fast weight loss, it landed way down on the Best Diets list - tying for number 38.

"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. 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. In fact, the diet is safe for most people, including children and older people. The Mediterranean diet has been praised for its health benefits for decades.




In third place, is something new called the Flexitarian Diet.

But the diet topping any list isn't necessarily the best diet for you.

The Mediterranean-DASH Intervention for Neurodegenerative Delay (MIND) diet, ranked five previous year, 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.
