The Mediterranean Diet
There's a reason the Mediterranean diet keeps topping the US News and World Report's diet rankings year after year — it has proven health benefits, and it's much easier to stick with than other diets. "The Mediterranean Diet isn't as restrictive with which foods you can eat or your macronutrient ratios as some other diets," Jessica Cording, MS, RD, CDN, told POPSUGAR. "It's more approachable and includes a lot of foods you are probably already eating."
If you're ready for a taste of the Mediterranean diet, Jessica recommends swapping out your cooking fats for extra virgin olive oil, buying less red meat and more seafood, and eating more fresh fruits and veggies. "Because the list of Mediterranean diet foods is so long, it's easy to make it work with any allergies, sensitivities, or food preferences," Jessica said. This fresh diet is sure to still get high marks in the coming year.
