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. On the heels of the best-selling The DASH Diet Action Plan comes The DASH Diet Weight Loss Solution. Both books have become NY Times bestsellers because they make the DASH diet so easy-to-follow. The first book introduced the DASH Diet and is tops for controlling blood pressure and cholesterol. And the ultimate DASH weight loss plan, The DASH Diet Weight Loss Solution speeds up weight loss, establishes new healthy eating habits, and is perfect for people with prediabetes, diabetes, or metabolic syndrome. To complement these books, we have the authoritative cookbook, The Everyday DASH Diet Cookbook.

Just released and already a NY Times bestseller, The DASH Diet Younger You updates DASH, by pumping up the plants and using all additive-free, natural foods. Learn how the DASH diet fights 3 causes of premature aging, Oxid-aging, Glyc-aging, and Inflamm-aging. The DASH Diet Younger You also includes the key foods to promote a healthy gut microbiota, which is linked to lower inflmmation, easier weight control, reduced auto-immune dysfunction, stronger immunity, improved glucose metabolism, and better mood. Complete with 14 days of meal plans for vegetarians, 14 days for non-vegetarians, and 75 all-new recipes ( heavy on the vegetarian side) to satisfy your desire to make your body younger and healthier from the inside out.

Why are these DASH diet books such a success? They are the top DASH diet resources for better health. All books feature 28 days of meal plans (other than the cookbook), recipes, and all the strategies for making DASH fit into your real life. These books are the ultimate combination for healthy weight and improved health. And they are written by the leading dietitian and DASH diet expert, Marla Heller, MS, RD.

What makes these books unique? Meal plans, carefully balanced to quench hunger and avoid blood sugar spikes that trigger cravings, and they are so flexible, with a variety of your favorite foods. Everyone says," I don't feel like I am on a diet!" Tracking forms to keep you focused, and tips and strategies to allow you to stay on track, even in your busy life. And our readers report, "This is so easy to follow, now it makes sense!"

When you choose a DASH diet book, you want to be sure that it is written by someone who is trained in the DASH diet, is a nutrition expert, with advanced degree training in nutrition and health. There are several books written by nonprofessionals, that are inaccurate and don't even understand the principles of the diet plan. Marla Heller, MS, RD, is the DASH expert dietitian.

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 these books provide simple, actionable plans that can fit seamlessly into everyone's life and lifestyle. They include:

  • 28 days of meal plans at different calorie ranges
  • DASH-friendly recipes and shopping lists
  • Tips for eating on-the-run
  • Advice for 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!

The DASH Diet Action Plan

Why did the expert panel assembled by US News & World Report announce that the DASH diet was the best diet, the healthiest diet, and the best diet for diabetes in the US, 6years in a row? Why did they choose DASH versus all the other plans? Because it has been proven in many, many research studies to improve health, while helping people lose weight. It helps to lower blood pressure and cholesterol; it has been shown to be associated with lower risk of certain types of cancer, heart disease, stroke, heart failure, kidney stones, diabetes, and osteoporosis. It is good for the whole family.

Research based

The DASH diet is based on the research studies: Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension, and has been proven to lower blood pressure, reduce cholesterol, and improve insulin sensitivity. The DASH diet provides more than just the traditional low salt or low sodium diet plans to help lower blood pressure. It is based on an eating plan proven to lower blood pressure, a plan rich in fruits, vegetables, and low-fat or nonfat dairy. Your doctor may have recommended this eating plan; it is also recommended by:

  •  The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (one of the National Institutes of Health, of the US Department of Health and Human Services)
  •  The American Heart Association
  •  The Dietary Guidelines for Americans
  •  US guidelines for treatment of high blood pressure, learn more about the DASH diet . . .

How Does the DASH Diet Plan Work?

The DASH diet helps to lower blood pressure by providing more key nutrients, such as potassium, calcium, and magnesium, all of which are associated with lower blood pressure. These key nutrients are boosted by including more fruits, vegetables, and low-fat or nonfat dairy in your daily diet. Some people see additional benefits by lowering sodium or salt in their diet.  Our book includes additional lifestyle changes to lower blood pressure, such as weight loss, exercise, smoking cessation, and moderation of alcohol intake.
