THE NUMBER-ONE RANKED DIET YOU’VE PROBABLY NEVER HEARD OF

When it comes to January resets, you’d think the most popular eating plan would be something you’ve heard of, right? Whole30, Paleo, vegan…but it turns out the number-one ranked diet, according to US News & World Report is—drumroll—the DASH Diet. (That confused look on your face right now is totally justified.)

According to the magazine (which polled a panel of 38 health experts to come up with its rankings), the DASH diet was crafted by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute with the goal of lowering high blood pressure with foods high in potassium, calcium, protein, and fiber. And on the “no” list are foods high in sodium and fat.

Even though it’s branded as a new diet, the guidelines are really things that have been advised for decades: eat fruits and veggies, lean protein, and legumes, and limit processed food and sugar. Not exactly revolutionary.

Wondering what else made the list? The Mediterranean Diet ranked second, and the MIND Diet—a blend of the DASH and Mediterranean diets—(again, huh?) came in at number three. If anything, the list shows that while buzzy terms for new eating plans will score headlines year after year, in the end, filling up on fruits, veggies, and protein never goes out of style.

And for a bit of January inspo: Here’s why rethinking your eating habits once a year is definitely a good thing. And if cutting back on sugar is your main goal right now, these tips will help.
