MIND Diet Targeting Dementia Ranked Among Top Overall Diets

January 8, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
Rush University’s (Chicago, Ill.) MIND diet was recently ranked among a news magazine’s choices for easiest diet to follow (No. 1), best overall diet (No. 2), and best diet for healthy eating (No. 3), but was near the bottom of the list (No. 21) for weight loss. MIND is a hybrid of the Mediterranean and Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) diets, and its goal is to delay or prevent dementia. The diet has been shown to lower the risk of Alzheimer's by 53 percent in participants who adhered rigorously, and by 35 percent in those who followed it moderately well. The diet includes whole grains, green leafy vegetables and other vegetables daily, wine, beans, poultry, nuts, and blueberries. Dieters should avoid butter, sweets, pastries, whole fat cheese, and fried food.
