The author took her nutritional advice right out of the 80's. It seems a waste to write an entire diet book using outdated concepts like "don't eat fat", "don't eat salt", or "don't eat cholesterol". Any book that tells you to eat margarine over butter has serious problems.

As a side note, the audio book format was not appropriate for the chapters that outlined several weeks of daily suggested menus. There was a later chapter that read out a great many recipes that also got cumbersome to hear. ( )

My husband came home from his physical and said his doctor wanted him to start the DASH diet to address high blood pressure. But where to start? This book was an excellent answer to that question. Practical steps combined with good recipes got us off to the right start. This book gave me the confidence that I could feed my family good-tasting food that would fit with my husband's medical needs. ( )

Very straightforward book--practical and insightful. Makes it very clear that a healthy diet with lots of fruits and vegetables, gentle exercise, and plenty of water will cure much of what ails you. Excellent resource for the newly diagnosed hypertensive.

The complete guide to lowering blood pressure and cholesterol-without medication-through a proven diet, exercise, and weight loss program

Finally, the #1 ranked DASH diet is popularized and user-friendly. Unlike any diet before it, DASH, which stands for Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension, came out of groundbreaking NIH-funded research. Now, Marla Heller, MS, RD, who was trained by one of the primary architects of the DASH diet and is herself the leading dietician putting DASH into action for over ten years, shares the secret to making the diet easy and accessible, in THE DASH DIET ACTION PLAN.

Rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, low-fat and nonfat dairy, lean meats, fish, beans, and nuts, DASH is grounded in healthy eating principles that lower blood pressure; reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke, and some types of cancer; and support reaching and maintaining a healthy weight. No diet has a medical pedigree like DASH, and this book is a simple, actionable plan that can fit seamlessly into everyone's life and lifestyle. It includes:

28 days of meal plans at different calorie ranges Simple tools to help you personalize a DASH Diet Action Plan for guaranteed success DASH-friendly recipes and shopping lists Tips for eating on-the-run Advice on healthy weight loss and exercise for every lifestyle.Now, you can revolutionize your health and change your life-without medication. There are no magical combinations, no forbidden foods-just fabulous, healthy eating!
