Experts just ranked the best diets, and their choices will probably surprise you | by Popular Science

Who likes to diet?                       That's what I thought


This year’s rankings have a tie for first place between the DASH and Mediterranean diets. You could probably come up with the guidelines for both without doing any Googling because they’re basically just “eat the foods you’re always told to eat.” Focus on fruits, veggies, fish, lean meats, and whole grains. Cut back on sugar and starches. DASH stands for Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension because it was originally designed to, you guessed it, lower hypertension. The next four diets — flexitarian, Weight Watchers, MIND, and TLC — are all essentially variations on that theme. MIND stands for Mediterranean-DASH Intervention for Neurodegenerative Delay and does exactly what the name implies, while TLC stands for Therapeutic Lifestyle Changes.
