It's January so you know what that means ... time to attempt to diet! Dieting isn't as simple as watching what you eat anymore. There isn't one program everyone is buying and trying like they used to. Diets are crazy nowadays. From the Keto diet, to Whole30, the possibilities are endless. So how is one supposed to choose from ALL of these options? Go with the best.

The Mediterranean Diet was named the best diet for 2019, according to Insider, heres' why -

The Mediterranean diet is high in fresh fruits and vegetables, low in red meat and sugar, and allows you to drink wine. It could help with weight loss, heart health, and diabetes prevention.

Let me guess, the word that really jumped out at you there was wine. That may be one of the main reasons this diet is the best option. It allows you to eat and drink the things you love while also maintaining a healthy eating regime. Insider also details -

The concept of the Mediterranean diet comes from the countries that border the Mediterranean sea, where people historically ate mainly produce, nuts, and healthy fats. 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. In fact, the diet is safe for most people, including children and older people.

Tis the season to attempt to diet. At least there's wine.
