DASH for Heart Health,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The DASH Diet Health Plan: Low-Sodium, Low-Fat Recipes to Promote Weight Loss, Lower Blood Pressure, and Help Prevent Diabetes (Kindle Edition)
The DASH diet can certainly help you lose weight - it wouldn't be much of a diet otherwise - but its focus is on decreased risk of diabetes, general heart health and lowering blood pressure. That's in the name: DASH stands for Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension. This isn't some radical new diet, but rather one based on a National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI) study from the 90s that is finally getting the recognition that it deserves.
I won't lie and tell you that this is an easy diet. It takes a bit to get started, including a bit of math homework to determine your Body Mass Index and a few other vital statistics, and when I saw that butter was nixed from the menu I nearly cried. For the sake of my heart, however, I suppose I can crunch a few numbers, while Chatham's meal plans and recipes allow for some delicious dishes, ranging from the simple to the extravagant to fit any schedule. He even sneaks in a few cheats - because he understands that we all need to indulge from time to time!

I love butter too--but these days I substitute coconut oil for butter--works wonders.
