Mayo Clinic Diet Launches "The Diet Score" Interactive Wellness Tool

The Free Diet Score Will Help Americans Understand How Diet Impacts Health In Conjunction with the White House National Strategy of Reducing Diet Related Disease by 2030

ROCHESTER, Minn., Sept. 28, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- The Mayo Clinic Diet today launched "The Diet Score," a scientifically-based survey that gives consumers insights into their current dietary behaviors to help them improve their lifestyles. "The Diet Score" is the latest innovation from The New Mayo Clinic Diet. It allows consumers to compare their current diet and exercise patterns with those established by the Mayo Clinic's food group system.

The launch of the tool comes on the heels of the White House announcing earlier this week a new national strategy of reducing diet-related disease by 2030.

"The Diet Score provides participants a baseline to determine where they fall on our science-based healthy diet scale," states Donald D. Hensrud, MD, Medical Editor of The Mayo Clinic Diet. "There is no right or wrong score; rather, the goal is to provide an interactive tool that identifies several easy-to-adopt dietary and lifestyle modifications that will aid them in improving that score, no matter what it is."

The Diet Score tool is free and easy for anyone to use. The survey takes about three to five minutes to complete and asks participants a series of simple questions about the foods they eat each day. It then compares that individual's daily food intake with a plan based on the food group model established by the Mayo Clinic Diet and calculates the participants' scores from 1 to 100. Participants receive suggestions about how they might improve their overall score with simple diet changes.

"Many people worry because they feel their score is lower than expected," observed Dr. Hensrud. "The good news is that the Diet Tool includes easy-to-make modifications, and the Mayo Clinic Diet itself can help them improve their scores in as little as two weeks."

The New Mayo Clinic Diet is the official dietary program developed by the Mayo Clinic. It reflects the latest advances in dietary research and provides new tools to make following its simple steps even more effortless. Members can choose from flexible meal plans that include Vegetarian, Mediterranean, High Protein, and a new Healthy Keto program. The program, built on an all-new digital platform from Digital Wellness, has tools and trackers to help members lose 3x more weight. The program also includes a Habit Optimizer and a private Facebook group where members can connect and support each other. It can also be used with other resources such as Mayo Clinic Press' Cook Smart Eat Well cookbook.

The diet is based on the #1 New York Times best-selling book series and online program that consistently ranks as a U.S. News & World Report 'Best Diet.'
