Posted on Monday, October 10th, 2011 at 11:26 am

This past summer US News and World Report put together a panel of 22 experts that included cardiologists, diabeteologists and nutritionists and told them to do the 20 top diet reviews of   well-known weight loss programs.  The aim of the panel was to establish the most effective diets in several different categories, including best weight-loss, best diet for controlling diabetes, best diet for your heart, best commercial diet and best overall diet.  The goal, according to US News & World Report health reporter Kurtis Hiatt, was to help folks find their own best diet.  “There is no one diet for everybody” said Hiatt. What were the results? The diet which was ranked #1 for both the best overall diet as well as the best for diabetes was the DASH (Dietary Approach to Stop Hypertension) Diet.  The best commercial diet program was awarded to Weight Watchers, which also won the award for the best weight-loss diet.
