NEW YORK (CBS) – Is dieting one of your New Year’s resolutions for 2012? If so, you may want to take note of U.S. News & World Report’s 2012 Best Diets rankings.

Each year, the media outlet pores through scientific journals, government reports and input solicited from 22 experts in food science and nutrition. The data is used to develop a ranking.

What are the best diets that are out there today? U.S. News & World Report ranked the DASH diet as the top overall best diet. Weight Watchers ranked best for weight loss.

But for the first time ever, U.S. News & World Report ranked which diets are easiest to follow. After all, sometimes the best diet is one a person will actually stick with. For the list of easiest diets to follow, panelists assessed taste appeal, ease of initial adjustment, ability to keep dieters from feeling hungry and special eating restrictions.

    I discovered the DASH diet many years ago when reading “Reversing Hypertension” by Dr. Julian Whitaker. The DASH diet also drops your blood pressure like a lead balloon. My BP went from an average of 170/110 to 115/65 after I went on the diet. You can actually do this “diet” as part of your eating regimen for life – just increase portion size if you want to maintain and not lose, once you’ve hit your goal.
