On Wednesday, US News & World Report published its annual list of best diets, as ranked by a panel of 23 nutrition experts. The panel rated 41 total diets, with established plans like the Mediterranean and DASH diets rising to the top and restrictive diets like keto landing near the bottom. This year, the diet that fared worst in the expert judging was the Dukan Diet. (Last year, it tied for last place with keto.) The Dukan Diet, named for its creator Pierre Dukan, calls for a high intake of protein and promises to help with weight loss. It’s said that some celebrities have adhered to the diet in the past. Back in 2011, for example, rumours swirled that Kate Middleton was following the plan as she prepared to marry Prince William, though Buckingham Palace denied such reports, according to ABC News.

Susan Selasky Detroit Free Press Published 12:40 PM EST Nov 19, 2018 This Thanksgiving will be Jennifer Stewart’s third year following a ketogenic (keto for short) diet. And just as in previous years, she has a plan. For starters, she'll prepare a dish to pass that she can eat. At her first Thanksgiving after starting keto, Stewart made sure she ate a high-fat meal before going to her boyfriend’s “big Italian” Thanksgiving dinner. Doing so helped her avoid the many carbs that make up a traditional Thanksgiving meal. If you’re unfamiliar with a keto diet, here's the quick explanation: It’s extremely low in carbohydrates and high in fat. Meat, including turkey with skin, is fine to consume, but other Thanksgiving staples aren't. Mashed potatoes are off limits, along with bread stuffing, rolls, sugary cranberry sauce and desserts. According to the Calorie Control Council, the typical Thanksgiving meal … [Read more...] about Keto-friendly Thanksgiving: Planning your diet for holidays
source mimagephotography/Shutterstock Weight Watchers has long assigned a point system to foods for dieters. The idea is to encourage people to stay away from less healthy items, like a slice of cake, by making those account for more of a person’s daily food-intake total. Foods that are perfectly healthy to eat in abundance, on the other hand, get a low point value. According to the the weight-loss giant’s rubric, some vegetables have always counted for zero points. But now Weight Watchers says dieters need not count points anymore when it comes to many other fruits, veggies, and nutrient-rich proteins. In December, Weight Watchers released an updated list of more than 200 zero-point foods that followers of the diet plan can eat in unlimited quantities. The list of zero-points items even includes things like eggs and fish. That idea might seem counterintuitive, since many people assume that dieters are at risk of overeating. “These foods form … [Read more...] about The most surprising foods Weight Watchers considers zero points — and why
