Just in Time for Your Health Resolution, Here Are the Best Diet Plans Ranked

From paleo to DASH, there was no shortage of diet plans to choose from in 2015. But sorting through the abyss to find a diet that actually meets our fitness needs was no easy feat. US News did the guesswork for us with its annual ranking of the best diet plans for your health goals. A panel of health experts evaluated 38 diet plans in various categories (weight loss, heart-healthy, plant-based, easiest) to determine the year’s best.

The DASH Diet won out as the best diet overall for the fifth consecutive year, scoring a 4.1 out of 5 for weight loss, healthiness and ease. The number one diet for weight loss is none other than the Oprah Winfrey-endorsed Weight Watchers program. Weight Watchers also emerged as one of the best commercial diets, sharing the top spot with the Mayo Clinic Diet.

When it comes to specific health concerns, the Fertility Diet is considered the best for diabetes, Ornish for heart health and DASH for general healthy eating. It’s no surprise that The Biggest Loser diet topped the list for the fastest weight loss diet, tying for first place with the Health Management Resources program. The MIND Diet, Fertility Diet and Weight Watchers share the top spot for the easiest diet to follow. And Beyoncé will be shocked to learn the Mediterranean Diet was named the best plant-based diet (her beloved vegan diet came in at number seven).

Check out the full list and ranking system here. Your fitness resolution just got a whole lot easier.

The only thing more entertaining than this year’s Love Advent video series is the behind-the-scenes reel. We watched Kendall imitate Jaws and Bella Hadid turn into a superhero, and marveled over how flawless they looked in costume. Who knew that Kendall tripped in her heels and Bella’s hair just wouldn’t cooperate?

Even Zendaya complains about her abs hurting, Christina Milian trips and falls flat on her back and Kris Jenner pauses filming to check for lipstick on her teeth. Stars, they’re just like us!

Check out the hilarious clip above.

Dakota Johnson (Mostly) Impresses on UK Vogue’s February Cover (Forum Buzz)

Last year wasn’t exactly British Vogue‘s finest, but after serving up Gigi Hadid last month for its January issue, the magazine continues to gather momentum by adding actress Dakota Johnson to its list of cover girls. Photographed by Alasdair McLellan, the Fifty Shades of Grey star looks fantastic shot on location in the streets of New York City as she rocks a dress from Celine on the cover.

As soon as the cover broke, our forums began to deliberate over U.K. Vogue‘s February edition. “Wow that hair… It’s like they were hiding her face. I’m sorry but this is just depressing. After having that Gigi cover in all smiles, you have Dakota who’s just as bland as Kristen Stewart. Everything here just screams autumn. This would have been better for July,” MON suggested.

“I’m not a fan of the flashy colors on their covers. It looks good in digital but in print it looks cheap. I don’t get why they are doing this. I wanted to buy Gigi’s cover because I liked it but in print it looks really bad because of the flashy orange,” shared Oxymore. (more…)

Eric Andre Starts #FreeThePenis Movement With Naked Instagram Photos

Instagram’s nude policy has its share of critics. The censorship police famously went to war with Rihanna after she posted her topless Liu Magazine shoot, even prompting the pop star to delete her account for a while.

That exchange sparked the #FreeTheNipple movement as women and men rallied for the chance to expose their nipples with abandon. Photos of topless men were ignored while nipple-bearing pics posted by Miley Cyrus, Chrissy Teigen and Scout Willis were immediately deleted. Sexist, much? (more…)
