  • Mediterranean Diet Named Best Diet for 2019

The Nordic diet, focused on vegetables, whole grains, fatty fish and berries, is tied for third place in the best plant-based diets on U.S. News and World Report's newly-released list of best diets for 2019.

The eating plan doesn't discourage drinking small amounts of alcohol - such as a glass of red wine for women and two glasses for men. It was also named best diabetes diet, best diet for healthy eating, best plant-based diet, best heart-healthy diet, and easiest diet to follow.

The Mediterranean diet took over the No. 1 spot from the DASH diet, which had maintained the top ranking for eight years in a row. The diet has always been linked to many health benefits, including lower risks of cancer and heart disease, better kidney health and a healthier gut. The Mediterranean diet has also been associated with a reduced risk of cancer and Parkinson's and Alzheimer's diseases.

2018 brought us many wellness fads, including the keto and carnivore diets, intermittent fasting, carb cycling and more. Read through to see a Mediterranean diet shopping list, what it's like to be on the diet, and why it's so easy to follow.

The plan focuses on fruit, vegetables, whole grain, lean protein and low-fat dairy and eliminates foods high in fat and sugar-sweetened drinks and candies, according to U.S. News and World Report.

The Mediterranean-DASH Intervention for Neurodegenerative Delay (MIND) diet, ranked five past year, is a hybrid of the top-rated DASH and Mediterranean diets.
