Dieticians and physicians have elected the same diet as the best every single year since 2011.


Health is a major issue for many Americans who are resolved to invest in their wellness, and a great part of that can be done by embracing a healthy nutrition.

Over 45 million Americans diet each year in order to achieve a healthier lifestyle or to reduce their weight. While every year sees the emergence of a new fad diet, nutritionists and physicians elect the most efficient and healthiest diets yearly, reported US News.com.

The experts evaluate the extensive data and information on 40 diet plans to help millions of dieters select the nutritional plan that will best suit them-.

In fashion right now are the new paleo, the Whole30 or keto diet - but one plan that has been topping the list for 8 consecutive years since 2011 is The DASH diet.

"The middle is probably the best way to go, and just use common sense when you're thinking about what to buy, how much to eat, and what to eat."


Dr. Rachel Herz, US News.com, 3rd of January 2018.

The name may not resonate, but the rules are familiar to every sensible dieter. The Dash encourages the lowering of sodium intake, refined sugar, saturated fats, trans fats. This reduces blood pressure and promotes good cardiovascular function.

To lose weight on the Dash diet, the adherent reduces the number of calories, and increase the level of physical activity. The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute website provides a free eating plan based on the DASH diet.

For those who wish to follow the DASH diet to lose weight, Maria Heller published a book called "The Dash Diet Weight Loss Solution: 2 Weeks to Drop Pounds, Boost Metabolism, and Get Healthy."


Though the DASH diet has ruled supreme for nearly a decade, it is now facing a strong contender for healthy living in the Mediterranean Diet.

The ranking was calculated by a panel of nutritionists, dietary consultants and physicians specializing in diabetes, heart health and weight loss.

Each nutritional plan was scored in nine categories, including ease of compliance, the likelihood of losing significant weight in the short and long term, and effectiveness against cardiovascular disease and diabetes.
