Mediterranean diet rated best for 2022
This simple diet reigns supreme for the fifth consecutive year
FOOD Healthy eating
The U.S. News & World Report releases an annual diet ranking to see what foods work best for the most people. In a time of hundreds of vastly different diets arising, the competition is tough, but in recent years there is one that has seen incredible success: the Mediterranean Diet.
This is the fifth consecutive year health experts have deemed this diet’s short-term and long-term weight loss, nutritional completeness, and simplicity superior to others. It also took top place for best plant-based diet, best diet for diabetes, easiest diet to follow, and best diet for healthy eating.
Gretel Schueller, managing editor of health for U.S. News & World Report, said, "Generally speaking, the top diets are driven by what you can eat—not what you can't eat. And right now—during these stressful times of the pandemic—that's especially helpful for people." She continued, "We want food we can enjoy. And we want food that will maintain our health, maybe even boost our immunity. The top-ranked diets offer this."
