The usual recommendations: follow the DASH diet, eat more fruits and vegetables, cut down on salt and sugar, lose weight. But she included specific foods to increase intake of potassium, magnesium, and calcium, and suggests stevia instead of artificial sweeteners. She also recommends eating whole fruit instead of fruit juice, which has more concentrated sugars. Then she discusses alternative food therapies such as fish oil, garlic, turmeric, green tea, and folic acid, and activities such as biofeedback and yoga. And of course she includes that you need to quit smoking.

While there were a few new ideas in the book, her ideas of flavor seem to be quite different from her audience's. I like salads, but would not consider one a substitute for mac & cheese, no matter how many times she describes it as "yummy." And olive oil spread on a baked potato is not what I would call "delicious" - cardboard-tasting would be a more accurate description. Some of the recipes looked interesting, although I've never been able to get anything usable from fennel and the idea of sardines in a salad almost sent me running to the bathroom. I'm also suspicious of recipes using cream cheese, which is high in sodium as well as fat. Most of the alternative therapies I couldn't use, such as cranberry juice (which tastes awful and didn't she just recommend NOT drinking juices?). Also, the cover is for a different book - sloppiness on the author's part. I'll be trying some of the dietary changes simply because I'll try almost ANYTHING to get my blood pressure down, but overall, there isn't much here for anyone who is moderately knowledgable about their body.
