Now it's official: this is the best diet out there - voila! health


More than 30 nutritionists, doctors and epidemiologists tested 24 diets to determine which are the most effective diets out there, and along with some expected results, there are also some surprises. Here are all the details

Why is obesity defined as a disease - and when does it really endanger us?

(Walla system)

The world of diets never stops changing and growing, and it seems that every year another diet is added to the existing arsenal.

Less carbohydrates, more fats, plant components or vice versa.

Not only is it difficult to follow the topic and understand what the most updated diet is, it is difficult to know if it actually works.

Therefore, every year the American magazine US News & World conducts a comprehensive review and gives the most trendy diets a rating.

This year, more than 30 nutritionists, doctors and epidemiologists examined 24 diets to develop the rankings for 2023. For the most part, the findings are repeated, but this year several new diets were added to the review and reached surprisingly high places.

The undisputed star - Mediterranean diet.

Let's start with news that is not surprising, and to be honest repeats itself.

The honorable first place, for the sixth year in a row, came to the Mediterranean diet.

It is defined as the best diet for health and maintaining weight.

The diet emphasizes eating fruits, vegetables, legumes, nuts, vegetable oils such as olive oil and eating fish.

The Mediterranean diet is one in which the emphasis is on habits and a healthy lifestyle.

The focus is on the quality of the food and not on the isolation of one component or another (as in low-carb diets, for example).

The ranking also referred to leading diets according to different categories:

The best diet for quick weight loss

There is also a category of the fastest weight loss diet, and here we clearly see an advantage for diets in which there is a guiding principle of a significant reduction in eating carbohydrates.

In first place came the ketogenic diet followed by the old Atkins diet.

It should be noted that these are effective diets for weight loss in the short term only.

The best diet for bone and joint health

In the category of the best diet for bone and joint health, two diets came in a tie.

The Mediterranean diet and the DASH diet.

The DASH diet or in its full name Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension is a diet that was originally intended as a diet for people dealing with high blood pressure.

This diet alongside medication, or alone as prevention in some cases, has been found over the years to be beneficial for other health conditions and has become a trend diet in its own right.

The most family friendly diet

In the category of the most family-friendly diet, the Mediterranean diet came again, but this time alongside two diets that entered the distinguished list for the first time: the flexitarian diet and the TLC diet.

The flexitarian diet is a flexible eating style that emphasizes consumption of plant-based foods and beverages.

The diet combines dairy products and eggs and encourages meat consumption less frequently and/or in smaller portions.

In fact, a flexible vegetarian diet if you will.

More plant products, less meat.

The TLC diet or in its full name Therapeutic Lifestyle Change was originally developed by the National Institutes of Health to help reduce the risk of heart disease or stroke.

This is in order to improve public health.

In this diet, you eat vegetables, fruits, bread, grains, pasta and lean meat.

The goal of the diet is to adopt a healthy eating style that will help maintain low cholesterol levels, to maintain the health of the arteries and thus optimize the health of the heart.

The best diet for heart disease and diabetes

For diabetics it was found that the most effective diet would be DASH followed by Mediterranean.

For the best diet for heart health and the best diabetes diet is surprisingly weight watchers.

More diets worth knowing:

with the rater Another interesting insight comes for 2023 It was found that more and more people are choosing diets with community support or structured group support, such as the Noom diet, which was rated on the spot 11th overall, and a diet that includes meetings of support groups, which was ranked 8th overall.

The grader teaches us that it is most important to find a diet that suits our goal in the long and short term.

A diet that we can easily stick to over the years if necessary.

And of course the rater does not refer to unique situations such as a diet during pregnancy or a diet during an illness that is not a metabolic disease.
