U.S. News & World Report rolled out its list of the best diets of 2019, and the Mediterranean diet took the top spot.

She says the Mediterranean Diet is based on the cuisine of the Mediterranean region, which includes lean proteins such as fish and beans, as well as healthy fats, whole grains and a large amount of plant-based foods, like fruits, vegetables and legumes.

Research has shown the Mediterranean diet reduces the risk of heart disease and may have numerous other health benefits, including reduction of LDL, or "bad", cholesterol, as well as a decreased risk of Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease and cancer.

It's the Mediterranean diet-with a score of 4.2 out of 5 possible points-which probably doesn't come as a surprise to the nutrition-savvy among us.

A plant-based diet that encourages eating like the Vikings did has made it for the first time onto the U.S. News and World Report's annual diet rankings. The trendy ketogenic diet (also known as the keto diet), which is very high in fats but low in carbohydrates, moved up to the second-best plan for weight loss.

Khawaja arrived at the venue on Friday morning with high hopes of Australia's quicks running through India, who resumed at 4-303. Mitch Marsh was also dropped with Peter Handscomb back to counter India's two spinners - Kuldeep Yadav and Ravindra Jadeja.

Experts ranked the diet poorly in heart-health, ease of use, and overall impact on health. It also limits red meat, salt, and candies. In fact, the diet is safe for most people, including children and older people.

The DASH diet was second - that's Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension.

The Mediterranean diet is an eating pattern that emulates how people in the Mediterranean region have traditionally eaten, with a focus on foods like olive oil, fish and vegetables. Eating a diet that's mostly vegetarian while also allowing for an occasional burger or steak to satisfy a craving can help with weight management and improve overall health, Blatner says.

In third place, is something new called the Flexitarian Diet. The plan also involves in-person meetings or online chats created to support those in the program and keep them accountable.
