If you have been dieting all your life and think you know everything, read this book!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Dash Diet Weight Loss Solution: 2 Weeks to Drop Pounds, Boost Metabolism, and Get Healthy (A DASH Diet Book) (Kindle Edition)
For the past several months I have had the privilege of participating in Marla's DASH Diet Challenge group on Facebook. Since starting the DASH diet in September of this year my husband and I have both experienced slow, steady weight loss. If you have been dieting all your life and think you know everything, read this book! You will learn to eat healthy and lose weight without calorie counting, weighing and measuring. You will learn how to order at a restaurant without sabotaging your diet. I cannot believe how our appetites have changed in a few short months. We have tried so many new foods! More than half of our grocery list is now made up of fresh produce. We feel satisfied with smaller, DASH friendly meals. I also sleep more soundly and have a renewed feeling of mental well-being. If you are a woman over 50 and think the extra pounds around your waist are never going to come off try this diet! I love the compliments I have received from people who have not seen me in a while! Thank you Marla!

I was so pleased to read in your review the sentence "If you are a woman over 50 and think the extra pounds around your waist are never going to come off try this diet!" I am 56 and although my weight (62kgs) doesn't fluctuate much I have noticed over the last couple of years that the shape of my body has. I'm all belly and I hate it. I really have tried just about every diet out there but I can't stick with most of them because they seem so unbalanced and I find it difficult to give up an entire food group. I have ordered the book and am eagerly awaiting it, it's supposed to arrive next week. I will post a review and let people know how I go for all those other ladies suffering from buddha belly!

I just turned 50 and am experiencing all of the above.. especially the weight in the belly.. I have such small legs and my hips are only 2" larger than my stomach. Now that is just ridiculous! I'm going to buy this book today (audible) and hope something clicks! I've tried many many other diets over the years. Your story is inspiring, how much did you end up losing all together? Did you keep it off? Do you still recommend this book?

Elizabeth, I lost 15 lbs, all around the middle. I am keeping the weight off. I feel great! DASH is the best and easiest diet.
