ATLANTA, January 4, 2017 – U.S. News & World Report has awarded the Ornish Lifestyle Medicine Diet the No. 1 ranking for the Best Heart-Healthy Diet for the seventh year in a row, every year since the publication’s rankings began. The Ornish Lifestyle Medicine™ program – now part of Sharecare through its 2016 acquisition of Healthways – is supported by nearly 40 years of rigorous clinical studies by Dean Ornish, M.D. and colleagues, and addresses the root causes of heart disease by using lifestyle changes as a less invasive and more effective treatment option than drugs or surgery.

The U.S. News rankings are determined by a panel of nationally recognized health experts in diet, nutrition, obesity, food psychology, diabetes and heart disease. The experts reviewed information on 38 diet plans, scoring each in nine categories: overall, weight-loss, fast weight loss, easiest to follow, diabetes, healthy eating, heart disease, and plant-based. In addition to the No. 1 heart healthy diet ranking, the Ornish diet ranked third for Best Plant-Based Diet and fourth for Best Diabetes Diet.
