The DASH diet has become well established as a model healthy eating plan. It continues to be evaluated in research to discover all the benefits of the program. In addition to promoting healthy blood pressure and cholesterol, the DASH diet supports healthy weight loss, and long-term adherence is associated with lower risk of stroke, heart failure, and osteoporosis, several types of cancer, and lower risk of kidney stones. And new research shows reduced risk of developing type 2 diabetes and some types of breast cancers.

Looking for a version that is pumped up for weight loss, and still incorporates all the blood pressure and cholesterol-lowering benefits of the original book? The DASH Diet Weight Loss Solution is the NY Times bestseller, that has helped tens of thousands to lose weight with a healthy eating plan that becomes a lifelong habit.
