Here are the other diets that topped the list.

The ketogenic, or keto, diet, which focuses on high-fat, low carbohydrate eating, jumped 11 spots to tie for the No. 2 ranking for Best Fast Weight Loss, showing the diet works for weight loss but may not be sustainable or healthy, according to Haupt.

The Dukan Diet, which promotes a strict, high-protein way of eating, took last place for 2019. In fact, one study found the diet may reduce the risk of developing Alzheimer's disease by as much as 53 percent.

Among the diet's requirements is eating three servings of whole grains, a salad and another vegetable daily, as well as a single glass of wine if desired.

Unlike highly restrictive diets like the keto diet or the Atkins diet, the Mediterranean diet is balanced and allows people to eat a wide variety of foods in moderation. The plan also involves in-person meetings or online chats created to support those in the program and keep them accountable.
