Does what it promises and more
, January 26, 2009
On the cover of this book, it promises "Proven to Lower Blood Pressure and Cholesterol Without Medication", and that is indeed true.
After just 2 weeks on the DASH diet, my blood pressure dropped by 30 points!
The provided charts are easy to follow and help you figure out your BMI (Body Mass Index) and how many maximum calories you should be taking in daily.
According to your customized calorie intake, it also provides recipes for 28 days of DASH menus which are easy and yet yummy and give you a great start to get used to the DASH diet.
The provided logs help you track your blood pressure, your exercise and your weight, which makes it personal, tailored towards your own needs.
It is furthermore chuck full of information to help you understand why the diet works, what you need to look out for, how to read food labels, other health concerns, explanations of fats, proteins and carbs, and much more.
I would definitely recommend it for anybody who is looking to lower their blood pressure. The best $20 I've ever spend for my health.
