Just in time for those New Year’s resolutions
U.S. News & World Report and a panel of 22 experts in diet, nutrition, obesity, heart health, and diabetes reviewed and ranked 25 popular diet plans for the second time.
Last year, the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) diet took home top honors as the best overall diet. This year, U.S. News considered five new diets in addition to the 20 they first reviewed last summer — the Abs Diet, the Biggest Loser Diet, the Dukan Diet, the Flat Belly Diet, and macrobiotic diets.
To update the rankings for the New Year, each expert scored the diets on their potential for short and long-term weight loss, nutritional completeness, safety, and potential for managing diabetes and heart disease. Then, the expert ratings were standardized to create this list of 2012’s top diets.
Read on to find out which plan took top honors overall, and which option might be the best for you in 2012.
