The DASH Diet for Hypertension, recommended by the American Heart Association, has been shown in studies to lower blood pressure in two weeks without the use of drugs. The DASH (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) diet emphasizes fruits, vegetables, and low-fat dairy; includes moderate amounts of fish, poultry, and nuts; and reduces consumption of red meat and sweets. Studies from the National Institutes of Health followed 800 participants and found that the DASH diet lowered blood pressure as much as typical medication.
This is no quirky diet--it's the way the major medical groups have been advising us to eat all along, but with a specific formula that tells you how many servings to eat from each Food Pyramid food group. You also get suggestions for exercising moderately, losing weight, reducing salt, and food shopping.
Included are two weeks of daily menus and 62 recipes, with modified favorites like Macaroni and Cheese and Sweet and Sour Pork with Vegetables, plus innovative dishes such as Mango/Black Bean Salad with Grilled Shrimp and Sweet-Potato Chips (baked). The authors are medical hypertension experts associated with Harvard and Duke medical centers. Recommended for people who want to lower their blood pressure or just eat more healthfully. --Joan Price --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
For once, something that sounds too good to be true really works. Developed by the medical school staffs of Harvard, Duke, Johns Hopkins, and Louisiana State University after a large clinical trial, the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) diet significantly reduces blood pressure, cholesterol, and homocysteine levels through diet alone, and experts agree that widespread adoption of the DASH diet would result in a substantial decrease in coronary heart disease and stroke. The diet includes eating four servings of fruits, four servings of vegetables, and two or three servings of low-fat dairy foods daily. Fatty foods, red meat, and sugar-sweetened foods and beverages are limited. Moore, who chaired the DASH trial, and his fellow authors explain the history of the DASH research as well the diet itself and provide clear and achievable tips on improving health and incorporating the diet into daily life. Two weeks of diet plans and 61 tempting recipes are included. The steps listed for making lifelong dietary changes are excellent. Recommended for all consumer health collections. Janet M.
