What Is the ‘Best Diet’ for You?

What makes a diet best? In Best Diets 2013, the latest set of exclusive rankings from U.S. News, the DASH diet beat out 28 others, including Atkins, Jenny Craig, and Slim-Fast, to win the “Best Diets Overall” crown. Among the 12 commercial diet programs marketed to the public, Weight Watchers came out on top. (Our methodology explains how.) We also ranked the diets on likelihood of weight loss, ability to prevent and control diabetes and heart disease, healthiness, and how easy they are to follow. And this year, we added one new rankings category: Best Plant-Based Diets, a nod to the healthfulness and burgeoning popularity of these plans. The Mediterranean diet snagged the top spot on the plant-based list, followed by the Flexitarian diet.

Here’s which diets came out on top in the eight different ranking lists:
