Mediterranean Diet Named Best Diet for 2019

WW's new global integrated campaign, "For Every Body", which launched on December 26, is based on the insight that everyone has their own reason to get healthy and what makes the most meaningful impact along the journey is everything you gain. For 2019, the Mediterranean diet took home the top award.

U.S. News & World Report, in collaboration with a panel of health experts, evaluated and ranked 41 diets.

Meanwhile, the Nordic diet - a plant-focused plan that borrows from the Scandinavian tradition - made its first appearance on the list, at number nine.
