US News & World Report has released their ranking of the top 29 diets for 2013 as chosen by a panel of health experts.

If dieting, losing weight or getting healthy was part or all of your New Year’s resolution, these rankings may help you to keep your resolution even though chances are in the next week or so, you will throw in the towel.

US News & World Report says the overall winner is the DASH diet, or Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension.  Originally intended for people with high blood pressure, DASH got high marks for being safe and nutritionally complete.  It also has been found to stave off diabetes and support heart health.  The DASH eating plan emphasizes cutting back on salt while consuming lots of fruits, veggies, whole grains and lean protein.

Other diets that landed in the top 10 include the low-fat Therapeutic Lifestyle Changes diet (or TLC), The Mayo Clinic diet, the Mediterranean diet and, a top-diets-list staple, Weight Watchers.
