I was pleasantly surprised as I read that there is some meat (pun intended!) to this diet and this book. I started to come around when I read how widely accepted it is - from the U.S. government to magazines like the ‘U.S. News and World Report’ - for being a no-frills, no-fad weight-loss approach.
The central hook is to lower one’s sodium by consuming about 2,000 per day. It explains why you won’t feel deprived or tired, and how research proves this out. I thought the book did a good job articulating types of food to increase or decrease and the easy-to-read food group guidelines and serving-size table. I also liked the handy way it suggests to measure portion size.
Eventually, it makes it clear that you need to plan or you won’t succeed. I appreciated that honesty. To help, there are weekly recipes and shopping lists, and it offers ways to make the most out of breakfast, lunch and dinner by doing things like eating a protein-rich snack.
The menu was fairly good, but there were some strange breakfast menus (frittatas most every morning). A lot of the recipes were pretty “normal,” though - like Spaghetti with meat sauce.
Overall, I was pleased. This was a good resource for someone with hypertension or owns one too many pairs of tight pants.
The first chapter provides a great overview and general introduction to how and why to eat more healthfully – like a primer in Nutrition 101 – and I really liked the explanation and differentiation of common cooking methods (broiling, roasting, poaching, etc.) and the main uses for common spices and seasonings.
However, I do have some complaints. While I like the idea of the weekly grocery list, it quickly becomes overwhelming and burdensome. And though a lot of these recipes sound tasty, the authors assume that you have a LOT of spare time every week to prepare them, and listing the total prep time required at the beginning of every recipe would have been useful. And finally, the organization of the book is poor, as it’ll have you constantly flipping back and forth throughout it to prepare all the dishes for a single meal.
The recipes looked exotic without feeling intimating and the enforcement of trying to use what's in season helps make going to the grocery store exciting! I would really recommend this book to anyone who needs a refreshing look at good-for-you recipes and easily laid out weekly plans.
The book is about Dash (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) diet, which is recommended for people with high blood pressure, diabetes, heart problems, osteoporosis, kidney disease, and also for anyone who is just looking for a way to eat better and feel better. The Dash diet is very easy to follow and it offers you lots of food options. The most important aspect of this diet is the MEAL PLANNING-the key to stick with it, to be successful and to keep you motivated. The book contains lots of detailed cooking tips, techniques, and suggestions. The diet is based on a step-by-step four weeks plan that includes sixty delicious Dash recipes to enjoy. The weekly meal plan comes with daily breakfast, lunch, snack, dinner, and dessert recipes and it specifies the daily amount of sodium for healthy eating.
This is definitely an interesting book.
