Mediterranean Diet and DASH Diet Top the Chart for 2018

According to recent findings from U.S. News and World Report, the best diets of 2018 include the DASH diet and Mediterranean diet (both tied at #1). This year’s worst diets included the Keto diet, Dukan diet and Whole30 (all tied at #39). I could not agree more with these findings. As a registered dietitian at Hannibal Regional, I provide numerous diet education to various patients. A diet should be one that is individualized to each patient, yet focuses on an end result of better health and chronic disease prevention. Diet fads are everywhere. Better health and weight loss should be driven by choices that over time, become habits which promote lifelong change. Stay tuned for a breakdown of the Mediterranean and DASH diet guidelines, and tips to incorporate these strategies into your lifestyle.

The diet you have mentioned isn't much different from the diet that i take. I have been taking those nutrients for 10 years and for me this isn't anything new.
