Best diet plan I've ever tried. The best part about this book is that it includes a 28-day menu plan. That's the hardest part about any diet for me and to have it spelled out is great. And all the menus are everyday-type of cooking - with all the foods you might normally have. It's great and is working for me.

I understand the premise behind the book. I have other DASH-centered books since I'm trying to reduce sodium. I thought this book would be just the ticket since following most low-calorie recipes in other books inevitably leads to a higher sodium diet than recommended. Foods marked "low calorie" very often have sodium that's incredibly high. One slice of no-fat cheese has almost 400 mg of sodium, a fact not mentioned in the book, but which should have been mentioned. DASH isn't just about calories. I wanted the book to cover lower calories plus lower sodium.

The book has gone into a lot of helpful detail, for which I'm grateful, but I'm finding that I need to consult the other DASH books and/or my computer to figure out how to fit the calories into a low-sodium program. Too, I don't understand how in the world three eggs would be one serving in any category. I had one microwaved "fried" egg today (spray a cereal bowl with Pam, break the yolk, cover with a saucer and nuke for 60 seconds) that totaled 70 calories for the egg and 140 calories for two slices of toast. It was was quite satisfying on the permissible grain allowance, and I added sliced tomato and a small tangerine for fruit/vegetable choices.

I am finding the book helpful, but to me, it's incomplete.

I love this book and find it very interesting but it will be hard to use this in the Kindle version as there are so many pages to keep referring back to. I wish I had purchased hard cover book instead of Kindle.

I find this to be very sensible. It is easy to follow and I lost 7 pounds since I started it on June 5th.

I am so glad that I purchase this book, I will be on this diet for the rest of my life, due to hypertension. The diet makes sense to me and it is cleary printed to explain the concept of the diet. Thank you Amazon for carrying this informative book.

I'm following the Dash diet. I've lost 5lbs. In less than a week. The diet does take some time to plan menus so your exchanges come out fulfilled properly. I' ve only tried one recipe ( Caesar wraps ) . It was excellent. I'm always full. I was always hungry because I was not eating enough calories.Also, I was way behind on quantites of fruit and veggies..i bought a few more copies of the book to share with my daughter and my housekeepers. We're all struggling with our weight.

I got this book three of months ago and have been working off the recipes exclusively. My blood pressure went down from 159/89 to 110/76, and so far I've lost ten pounds. Disclaimer - I bet a lot of that is water weight, since I no longer am eating salt. We shall see what happens in the future. This book has some good recipes and a good deal of usable real-world information. It's something even someone like me with no self-control can stick to.
