Is maintaining a proper diet plan your New Year resolution? If yes, check out the diets that make you healthier this year.
We all make New Year resolutions, so why not we try it on our diet this time, making us even healthier than before. Since it is just the starting of the year, we can think of something about our health now. The World Report has conveniently dropped its annual rankings of the most popular diets into the new year and it is very helpful about which highly-hyped diet is apt for you and which to stay far away from.
The diet that you should take
This year, one must switch to the Mediterranean Diet as this diet was crowned the winner for the third year in a row, followed by the Dash, Flexitarian, and WW (the diet is formally known as Weight Watchers) diets. One of the most dependent diets of the last decade has seen a decline now, as the keto diet has become one of the biggest losers of the year, ranking second to dead last just in front of the Dukan Diet.
The Mediterranean Diet is rich in fruits and vegetables, healthy fats, and whole grains, and provides a lot of health benefits. This diet was the big winner of the year due to the fact it is considered sensible. David Katz, MD, founding director of the Yale University Prevention Research Center explained the fact that the hallmarks of the best diet include balance, maintainability, palatability, family-friendliness, sustainability, along with healthfulness and Mediterranean diet has ticked all the boxes.
The diet that you should avoid
The high-fat, low-carb Keto diet which has amassed a cult following due to its get-slim-quick promises, ranked second to the last with experts noting concerns with its emphasis on fat-rich foods. One expert pointed out the fact that this diet is fundamentally at odds with everything we know about long-term health. It doesn’t even have a minimal effect on curing diabetes and promoting heart health. It has insufficient evidence supporting long-term weight loss.
