    DASH for Health

    The DASH diet started as a diet for health, to reduce blood pressure and risk for diabetes. It was rated by US News – World Report as the best diet for combating type 2 diabetes. It focuses on adding healthy fats and low-sodium foods into the diet and includes high amounts of vitamin C, which reduce stress and fat storage in the body. The diet also cuts out prepared and processed food, focuses on eating smaller portion sizes, and introduces appropriate exercise. The book includes a long list of tips for success, which is helps readers stick to the plan long term. The included menus are healthy, but they have a great serving size chart to guide readers. The author also includes an extensive and helpful "allowed food" lists, shopping lists, recipes for every taste, and dozens of menu plans.

    fixing instead of tricking

    This was a great read. Personally I hate diets that are all about “tricking” your body into losing fat by doing something that sounds downright unhealthy. This diet is different though. It begins with an explanation of the medical trials that lead to the discovery of the diet’s numerous health benefits, including reducing hypertension. After that the book is broken up into sections with tips and guidelines for changing your lifestyle, how to start a workout program, as well as a whole BUNCH of yummy sounding recipes. Great value!

    DASH for Heart Health The DASH diet can certainly help you lose

    DASH for Heart Health

    The DASH diet can certainly help you lose weight - it wouldn't be much of a diet otherwise - but its focus is on decreased risk of diabetes, general heart health and lowering blood pressure. That's in the name: DASH stands for Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension. This isn't some radical new diet, but rather one based on a National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI) study from the 90s that is finally getting the recognition that it deserves.

    I won't lie and tell you that this is an easy diet. It takes a bit to get started, including a bit of math homework to determine your Body Mass Index and a few other vital statistics, and when I saw that butter was nixed from the menu I nearly cried. For the sake of my heart, however, I suppose I can crunch a few numbers, while Chatham's meal plans and recipes allow for some delicious dishes, ranging from the simple to the extravagant to fit any schedule. He even sneaks in a few cheats - because he understands that we all need to indulge from time to time!

    My father was recently diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes and once I learned the DASH diet was rated number one for combating the disease, I’ve been searching for the right book to introduce to my dad. Chatham’s is the best resource I’ve found, so far. You are instructed how to slowly ease into the diet, using the tools included, like worksheets, reference tables, food guides, menu planners, and of course, plenty of recipes. It’s informative, providing plenty of background information on how the DASH diet was created and tested, and also stresses the importance of exercise and fitness, including fitness plan. Most important, to me and my dad, is that Chatham’s book is really reader friendly and easy to follow.

    The latest food plan to achieve the John Chatham stamp of approv

    The latest food plan to achieve the John Chatham stamp of approval is the National Institute of Health’s DASH diet. Designed with hypertension in mind, (DASH stands for Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension), this summation is a straightforward wealth of valuable information that will teach you to stop focusing on the lbs and, instead, zero in on your body mass while learning more about your metabolism. Is it a cinch? No – but no *real* diet is going to be. Five chapters of delicious sounding, low-sodium, low-fat and high-fiber recipes make a good case for positive change; along the way, you’ll learn what real, unprocessed food tastes like.

    I found the Dash Diet exceptional in its simplistic approach to following a healthy, low-sodium diet with excellent menu choices, which will reduce stress as well as cholesterol and inevitably excess fat. The book includes delicious recipes as well as varied daily menus, and explains why processed foods and certain items are preferred, while others are discouraged. As those with high blood pressure and/or high cholesterol 
    are searching for intelligent and helpful menus to combat health issues, this book is a "must read".

    The Dash Diet is the best cookbook for those of us who need to lower our blood pressure and lose weight. Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner are amazing recipes that a non cook can easily prepare. The Southwestern Salmon was really good but the loaded Turkey sandwich with cranberries was amazing. Really easy to follow recipes that make you look like a super star chef. You must get this cook book.

    An Educational Read!

    The DASH Diet Health Plan will definitely help you lose the weight you have wanted to lose! This book comes with everything you could want with a book about diets; it’s got a list of sample menus for fourteen days and even a sheet to help you figure out your Body Mass Index. And with this plan, the book gives you a list of the foods you can still have, including dark chocolate and your favorite vegetables!. The recipes are also enjoyable and I’d recommend everyone try them whether for diet or not!

    Easy to follow Diet and health plan

    The Dash Diet Health Plan is a breakdown lifestyle change that takes precautionary measures to control and/or prevent high cholesterol, heart disease and diabetes. While breaking down the major causes of these diseases and how changes in diet and exercise can positively affect the onset of these diseases and sometimes even become a way of decreasing/eliminating the problems altogether. The in depth menu options and multiple workout plans make it possible for everyone to jump into this lifestyle diet change and succeed. They also have plans that vary and can be adapted based on your health and activity levels, which is great since everyone is at a different level when starting out on this program. It’s a lifestyle change that can be applied to everyone.

    I think this book really does provide good recipes for someone who suffers from either diabetes or just wants to boost their overall health. This book provides lean and delicious food recipes. This book is not a diet r3eally it is a way of eating healthier. It focuses on not loosing fat but adding healthy fats and low sodium foods. It teaches one to stop eating processed and chemically dangerous products .I really enjoyed reading this book and seeing all the endless possibilities of great healthy recipes. This book really educated me on what our body needs and how beneficial it is for us to stay healthy.

    All the information in this book is readily accessible for free. Or you could just ask a doctor and they'd easily summarize the gist of this book: eat sensibly and exercise constantly. The "average American" is awful. If you didn't know that already this book can help, but don't let that be the end of your research. As it is, this book omits important nutritional information (how about a comprehensive chart?) so its value is more inflated than it appears.

    Eating healthy for people with high blood pressure, hypertension

    Eating healthy for people with high blood pressure, hypertension or diabetes doesn’t have to be difficult or break the bank. It also doesn’t have to be boring and this book is proof! Always be sure to check with your doctor before changing your diet if you’re on medications for blood pressure, diabetes or cholesterol. This diet is not a miracle cure. Please continue to keep up with your medical conditions with your doctor!

    “The DASH Diet Health Plan’s” claims are difficult to believe, yet scientifically proven. I was amazed that these delicious recipes and the simple, 28-day fitness plan could give such rapid results in lowering blood pressure and positively impacting Type 2 Diabetes.

    And it’s not just that the authors are fabricating such random claims, this book is backed up by several years of documented research at five of the nation’s most respected medical institutions.

    More than a purchase, this is an investment in my health!

    This is a good book for anyone who want to learn more about diet

    This is a good book for anyone who want to learn more about dieting without starving yourself.  The book comes with some great recipes with plenty of healthful tips and info for choosing a variety of foods with good nutrition for easy dieting.  The book is especially good for those who have health condition such as high blood pressure.  I don't care for dieting but as I get older I am forced to realize some harsh realities when it comes to proper dieting.  You are what you eat.  And if you learn to eat smart you will live a longer more productive life.  This book is great for both beginner and advanced dieters in my opinion.

    This book is a complete diet plan with the 14-day menu planner as well as the 28-day fitness plan. Its indulgent menu would satisfy any craving for unhealthy habits.

    Great book for those looking to improve their health through the DASH diet. Sample meal plans, recipes, step-by-step guides to calculating your BMI/BMR, foods to embrace/avoid, and much more, guide you through adopting the diet. Best of all the writing is straightforward and it's easy to navigate on an electronic device. DASH isn't so much a 'diet' as it is a way of eating to maintain your health. With the help of the book, I'm ready to get started!
