The DASH diet has been ranked as the best diet, the healthiest diet, and the best diet for diabetes, 8 years in a row! The expert panel of physicians assembled by US New & World Reports chose DASH because it is proven to improve health, has a balance of healthy food groups, and it actually works. It has been proven to lower blood pressure and cholesterol, and is associated with lower risk of several types of cancer, heart disease, stroke, heart failure, kidney stones, reduced risk of developing diabetes, and can slow the progression of kidney disease.
The design of the meal plans in all of the books are based on newer research on how to make satisfying meals, helping to prevent between meal hunger. That is a key feature of high-fiber, low caloric-density, balanced meals with appropriate serving sizes.
Brand new! The DASH Diet Mediterranean Solution. This book is a true marriage of the top heart healthy diets, based on the newest research showing synergist benefits in combination. More than just the addition of Mediterranean-inspired recipes (which, by the way, are fabulous!), this diet mashup enhances the benefits of both. And it is such a satisfying plan, that you will find it easy to stay on track and reach your healthy weight goals.
Perhaps when you think of the Mediterranean diet, you think of lots of bread and heaping plates of pasta. Nothing could be further from the truth. The key elements are lots of vegetables, particularly greens, fruits, beans, fermented dairy foods, lean poultry and seafood, olive oil, wine, and limited red meats. Refined grains, added-sugars and processed foods are kept to a minimum. Come join our new adventure! Mediterranean DASH Diet Group free support group.
