Looked at list again.....the main list as post one shows is best diet, like overall diet.
Below are other rankings, like weight loss diets:
Still a useless list. WW and Mediterranean make the top5.
Years ago a well meaning beloved auntie gave me a copy of the Mediterranean diet book. I nearly fell over at the amount of rice and carbs. Never tried it. Stuck with DANDR as I knew that worked for me. I do like the recipes just not the added carbs.....many easy to make low carbs.
My oldest likes stir fries. Often without rice. He's a pencil and burns the calories.
An old healer in a book by Anne W_____, her grandmother in a Lithuanian village, did not recommend milk for adults. (As knowledgeable doctors say, milk is for fast growth as it has high protein, high fat and high carbs. ) Children yes, adults , no. This book was written over 50 years ago and chronicled Anne's childhood: surviving the occupying soldiers of WWI, hiring out to a farm and "bathing" once a week in a sauna, traveling to America, living in Boston, surviving gangrene by fasting ( doctors wanted to amputate and when she said no, discharded her from hospital), started loosing her teeth yet her grandmother had perfect teeth......she developed sprouting and recipes to provide a fresh vegetable during the long winters when people suffered from I'll health and rotting teeth in general.
I am reminded of her book often: Too few understand nutrition. It's a long life endeavor.....as we know.
