There are several diet trends that hit the market at the start of 2017. However, some of the most popular diet schemes can potentially do more harm than good.

Diet trends are continually evolving over time, there are countless choices which can range from the healthies often to the one that is most destructive. The Health website came up with a list that explains the best and the worst diets for 2017.

Top of the list is said to be the best diet known as the dietary approach to stop hypertension (DASH) as it is named as the best diet regime in the United States for more than five years. The dies which are solely intended for those who would need to lower their blood pressure wherein that go for a low-fat, low sodium and plant based diet. The DASH diet does not only aid in weight loss, but it also has other health benefits which include improvement in metabolism and better skin as well.

The best diet is a balanced meal plan, but with low sodium. Plant based diet may be ideal, but experts suggest that getting a balanced meal, which includes meat for protein is ideal.

"With all of the competing headlines about sugar and saturated fat and this study and that study, the reality is that if you pull together a multidisciplinary group of nutrition experts, their conclusions are remarkably stable over time," Dr. David Katz told Health. "What makes diets fundamentally good, for weight control or for health, is pretty much the same as it ever was."

As for the worst diet plan, on the other hand, PopSugar mentioned that the Whole30 diet can do more harm than good. US News placed the Whole30 diet on the worst list as it is said to be restrictive. The worst diets, including the Paleo and the Dukan diets, are not ideal for long-term practice as it is restrictive. Experts even tagged these diet trends as a "fad diet" as it is unnecessary to cut off a certain food group on the daily meal intake.
