Foods including whole-grain pita bread, fresh fruit, salads, nuts, beans, olive oil, and salmon are staples of 2019's top diet and promote a variety of health benefits.

The Mediterranean diet focuses on plant-based cooking, with meals consisting of whole grains, fruits and vegetables.

The diet, named for the region that includes Norway, Iceland, Finland, Denmark and Sweden, is an example of a growing interest in diets followed by some of the healthiest people in the world, according to Angela Haupt, assistant managing editor of health at U.S. News and World Report. Last year's ranking showed the Mediterranean diet tied with the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension diet (also known as DASH), the government-backed plan that emphasizes foods low in sodium but rich in potassium, magnesium and calcium - all of which help lower blood pressure. This year a panel of 23 experts scored 41 diets based on summaries of each diet from U.S. News and recent research. The term was coined by registered dietitian Dawn Jackson Blatner in her book "The Flexitarian Diet: The Mostly Vegetarian Way to Lose Weight, Be Healthier, Prevent Disease and Add Years to Your Life".

Unlike highly restrictive diets like the keto diet or the Atkins diet, the Mediterranean diet is balanced and allows people to eat a wide variety of foods in moderation. The DASH diet had been ranked as the No. 1 overall diet by U.S. News and World Report for the previous eight consecutive rankings.
