Which diets are the best?

Posted:

If dieting is one of your new year resolutions, how do you know which one to choose?

It seems like there's always a new diet trend popping up and to help narrow down some of the choices..  'U.S. News and World Report' compiled a list of the best diets for 2018.

Tied at #1: The Mediterranean and the DASH diet -- which stands for "dietary approaches to stop hypertension." Both put emphasis on fruits, veggies, whole grains, and low-fat dairy foods. The Mediterranean is ranked as one of the best diets for diabetes. And the DASH is often recommended to lower blood pressure.

Coming in 3rd: The Flexitarian diet. This is basically a vegetarian diet that gives you the "flexibility" to eat meat or fish on occasion. 

4th is the ever-popular Weight Watchers diet.

The diet that came in last? The high protein, high fat and low carb diet known as Keto. Experts ranked the diet poorly on long-term weight loss success, ease of use and overall impact on health.
