Overview

New York Times bestselling author Marla Heller shares a revolutionary new DASH diet plan, proven to boost weight loss and lower cholesterol and blood sugar levels through 28 days of healthy meal plans.

The New York Times Bestseller—Based on the Diet Ranked "#1 Best Diet Overall" by US NEWS & WORLD REPORT—for 4 Years in a Row!

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.

I have lost 13 lbs and my husband has lost 16 lbs so far. we have one more week to go. When we go through the 4 weeks. we are going to start from the beginning and start over again. This is the best diet ever. You eat very healthy And it gives you the food groups you need. And your not starving yourself.

Eating healthy in my house is can be a struggle. We try and sometimes we succeed and sometimes we fail. We've got my daughter starting to try new foods and now it's time for Mom and Dad to catch up! I've heard the about the DASH diet and was interested in learning more about it. We are looking to find a diet that is easy to follow (I hate number crunching), nutritious with food that the picky eaters in my house will eat, contains various health benefits. I am not dietitians or nutritionists so I can't speak on the actual medical benefits, but I will review the book based on it's content. The book was very easy to understand. After a quick introduction you are given a sample menu to show you what your meals should be looking like...and I can say, this is not a starvation diet! I'm a picky eater and I would say that I would eat the majority of recommended items. There is a collection of wonderful recipes in the back of the book, including chili, stir-frys, beans and potato fries. The recipes are easy to follow and contained ingredients that could be found in almost any pantry. We tried the Caribbean Chicken and it was delicious. The book also contains a chapter on reading nutrition labels. This is an area that I always struggle with and the DASH Diet Action Plan book help clarify some of the things (like nutrient composition) that I have never really understood. The book offers ideas on how to stock up your pantry with DASH foods, recommends how to add exercise and make other lifestyle changes to not only lower your blood pressure but improve you health in general. Overall I found this book really helpful and full of practical common sense information that should help you lower your blood pressure and improve your overall health.
