Lose weight with the 5 best diets of 2019

IF you're panicking about getting in shape for summer, it's time to chill out.
Because you don't have to go to extreme lengths to lose weight, get leaner and be healthier all year around.

For the second year in a row, this olive oil-rich diet has topped the list thanks to its heavy reliance on fresh veg, whole grains and healthy fats.
It's low in refined sugar, red meat and processed foods which is why it's been linked to lowering risks of cancer, heart disease, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure.
It also may improve kidney function and gut health.
The NHS explains: “The Mediterranean diet varies by country and region, so it has a range of definitions.
“But in general, it's high in vegetables, fruits, legumes, nuts, beans, cereals, grains, fish, and unsaturated fats such as olive oil.
“It usually includes a low intake of meat and dairy foods.”
It tends to replace butter with oil, while flavouring comes from herbs and spices rather than salt.
2. DASH diet

Can't bear the thought of quitting meat entirely?
You don't have to -but you might want to limit how much you eat to once or twice a week.
Significantly reducing how much meat you eat has been proven to be effective in combating heart disease, type 2 diabetes and cancer.
In fact, flexitarians can reduce their likelihood of developing diabetes by a massive 28 per cent simply by reducing the number of times they eat meat (those who go vegan see their chance halve).
What about keto?
Keto is often hailed by bodybuilders and dieters for being the best way to lose body fat and gain or retain lean muscle mass.
But it actually didn't win any categories and actually tied with Atkins (which most people accept is a dangerous plan) and Weight Watchers for fasted weight loss diet.
Keto works by forcing the body to use its own fat supply for energy.
It does that by starving it of external sugar sources - notably carbs. You're still supposed to eat a stack-load of veg so you keep your fiber and vitamin levels up but many keto dieters may not be adhering to that.
The problem is that it's a really restrictive diet and there's been so much research recently which has confirmed that carbs are vital to good health, that it seems a bit counterintuitive and unsustainable to cut them out.
Saying that, keto is supposed to be great for anyone who is insulin-resistant and struggles to lose weight even if they're eating healthily and working out regularly.
Women with severe PCOS may benefit from keto for a short period of time while they get their blood sugar back under control.

4. MIND diet

WW - formerly known as Weight Watchers - actually was tied with MIND of the best diet overall.
But it did come first for the best diet for weight loss and best commercial diet.
It assigns point values to food based on their calorie, sugar, saturated fat and protein content.
The healthiest foods have zero points, meaning that you can eat as much of them as you like.
You're given a daily point total which you meet by keeping a food diary.

But if you are looking to get healthy, many of these diets seem to have common sentiments - cut down on the sugar and red meat, and fill up on whole grains and veg.
That's easier said than done for many and if you do need extra support, you could do a lot worse than signing up to a local WW group.
