From a recent Forbes article titled, “Why DASH And Mediterranean Are The Best Diets For 2018“:

Ultimately, as obvious as it may seem, “The success of any ‘diet’ lies in whether or not you can follow it,” said Wilson.
Choo agreed. “We constantly see diet trends come and go; some are too restrictive and therefore not sustainable. With an uptrend in health and wellness in 2018, finding a healthy eating pattern that you can maintain is crucial.”
