MEDFORD, Ore. -- Eating healthy and losing a few pounds are always at the top of the New Year's to-do list. While making the resolution is simple, choosing the right diet can be a bit overwhelming. Our Health Alert looks at diets that help people lose weight in a healthy way. 'U.S. News and World Report' compiled a list of the best diets for 2018. 

Tied at number one, The Mediterranean and the Dash Diet, which stands for dietary approaches to stop hypertension. Both put emphasis on fruits, veggies, whole grains, and low-fat dairy foods. The Mediterranean is ranked as one of the best diets for diabetes. The Dash is often recommended to lower blood pressure. 

Coming in third, the Flexitarian Diet. This is basically a vegetarian diet that gives you the "flexibility" to eat meat or fish on occasion. In fourth, is the ever-popular Weight Watchers Diet.

Meanwhile in last place, the high-protein, high-fat and low-carb diet known as Keto. Experts ranked the diet poorly on long-term weight-loss success, ease of use and overall impact on health.
