For overall healthy eating, the best diet plan is the Mediterranean diet, according to U.S. News & World Report's annual diet review. The heart-healthy diet is rich in fruits, vegetables, fish and whole grains, along with healthy fats like olive oil, nuts and avocados. The Mediterranean diet has also been associated with a reduced risk of cancer and Parkinson's and Alzheimer's diseases.

Those who aren't as concerned about losing weight may consider the Mediterranean diet, which was named the Best Overall Diet, the Best Diabetes Diet, the Best Diet for Healthy Eating, the Best Plant-based Diet, the Best Heart-healthy Diet, and the Easiest Diet to Follow for 2019. This year a panel of 23 experts scored 41 diets based on summaries of each diet from U.S. News and recent research.

Meanwhile, the Nordic diet - a plant-focused plan that borrows from the Scandinavian tradition - made its first appearance on the list, at number nine. Other diets at the bottom of the list included the Dukan diet, the Body Reset Diet and the Whole30 diet.

To that end, she said the top three diets are all similar in their food content, and all can be healthy eating regimens.

In third place, is something new called the Flexitarian Diet.

The DASH diet was second - that's Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension.

"Every year we have a new fad or trend or a flashy diet but that trickery doesn't amount to much and you don't need something that's excited or really even complicated", Haupt said.

The NHLBI publishes free guides on the plan so you can see if it is right for you.

If you've ever been confused about what to eat, you're definitely not alone.

The plan focuses on fruit, vegetables, whole grain, lean protein and low-fat dairy and eliminates foods high in fat and sugar-sweetened drinks and candies, according to U.S. News and World Report. You can have red wine in moderation if you'd like, but you must get plenty of exercise and enjoy meals with family and friends.

The "new meat" food group includes tofu, beans, lentils, peas, nuts, seeds and eggs, according to U.S. News and World Report. The plan also involves in-person meetings or online chats created to support those in the program and keep them accountable.
