A new study from the University of Otago, New Zealand, on the Mediterranean, paleo and intermittent-fasting diets compared how well people were able to stick to them and each diet’s outcomes for weight loss and overall health. Less than a third of people stuck to paleo, 57 percent stuck to a Mediterranean diet, and 54 percent stuck to intermittent fasting over the year-long study.

The intermittent-fasting diet was the only one where people lost weight continuously during the 12 months. People that followed the Mediterranean diet (even imperfectly), however, had better measures of blood pressure and glycemic control.
