  • 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.

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