Rich in low-starch vegetables, fruit, healthy fats (mostly from olives and olive oil), nuts, seeds, whole grains, legumes, and fish, the Mediterranean diet eschews simple sugars and refined starches and is low in red meat.

"I wish though, that we weren't so obsessed with weight loss and diets, per se".

Additionally, WW retained the #4 spot for "Best Diet Overall". It's very similar to the Mediterranean plan.

WW's new global integrated campaign, "For Every Body", which launched on December 26, is based on the insight that everyone has their own reason to get healthy and what makes the most meaningful impact along the journey is everything you gain.
