With every new year comes the annual tradition of making resolutions. One of the most popular goals most of us strive is to either lose weight or live healthier.
On Wednesday, “U.S. News and World Report” revealed its Best Diets for 2019, discovering the Mediterranean diet — which focuses on fruits and veggies, healthy fats, whole grains and lean meat — is the best of the bunch.

“No one diet is right for every single person,” said Angela Haupt, assistant managing editor of health with U.S. News.
