"US News & World Report" has ranked the best diets for 2018 and there’s not just one winner. After all, finding a healthy diet isn't just about about weight loss - they're about overall health, too (at least they should be). As the folks at the magazine see it, their “analysis puts hard numbers on the common-sense belief that no diet is ideal for everybody.”
In the end, the DASH diet and Mediterranean diet tied for number one as the Best Overall.
- DASH wasn't created as a way to drop pounds, but as a means of combating high blood pressure (it stands for Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension). Technically, DASH is not referred to as a diet, but an "eating plan."
- If you want to drop pounds then check out Weight Watchers. Weight Watchers is holding on to the number one spot for Best Weight-Loss Diets.
Then there's the Keto Diet, which aims weight-loss through fat-burning, by slashing carbs and filling up on fats. Since there’s no one diet that will suit everybody equally, experts say you ought to ask yourself a few questions to help identify the right fit for you: Is it too restrictive? And, how long can I stay on it? Bottom line - don't do anything you can't live with forever. Changing your eating habits is about a lifestyle change (that is, if you want to lose and keep that winter layer gone).
