Publisher's Summary

Do you know why the DASH diet is voted the "Best Diet" year after year? It's simple: The DASH diet is an easy and sustainable tool for creating a healthful lifestyle. Based on research by the National Institutes of Health, and chosen by U.S. News & World Report as its number-one choice in Best Diets Overall, Best Diets for Healthy Eating, and Best Diabetes Diets, the DASH diet rises above the noise of the gimmicky weight-loss plans.

Created as a way for people with high blood pressure to enjoy the foods they love while working to reduce or correct their hypertension, the DASH diet uses healthful food choices, along with more nutritious ways to prepare favorite dishes, to allow people to eat a varied, delicious, and balanced diet.

And although it wasn't created as a weight-loss diet, the DASH diet often does result in weight loss, which is a huge benefit to those who have diabetes or high blood pressure, or are at high risk of developing either disease.

In The DASH Diet for Beginners, best-selling health and nutrition author John Chatham provides a straightforward approach to losing weight, reducing hypertension, and improving overall cardiovascular health. More than just a brief overview of the DASH diet, The DASH Diet for Beginners compiles everything you need to know to get started on a healthful new lifestyle.

  • 40 delicious and DASH-approved recipes include low-sodium versions of your favorite foods, from Creamy Spinach Dip, Beef Tostadas, Blackened Salmon Filets and Chocolate Strawberry Mousse.
  • DASH Diet for Beginners outlines much more than just the basic essentials to get started; it includes DASH diet guidelines and health benefits, scientific studies, a DASH diet foods list, and a healthy fitness and meal plan.
  • The Seven-Day DASH Diet Meal PlanProvides an easy guide to jumpstart your health and weight loss.

Lose weight, improve your health, and reduce your risk of heart disease with John Chatham's The DASH Diet for Beginners.

At least it was short

I love how diets always claim you will feel satisfied and never deprived and then go on to say you can't have potatoes or corn or butter or sugar. This is pretty standard diet stuff and a lot of recipes. Thankfully it's short.

Great intro to the diet and great recipes

This is a really good starting place for anyone interested in the DASH (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) diet plan. It's a really quick read, and the book does a really good job of outlining the basics and offering recipe options. The first half of the book deals with oulining the plan and the second half is recipes.

I know...I know...what could be more boring than hearing recipes read out loud? I have to say though, hearing the recipes read gave me some new ideas for menus and a good idea of how they use substitutes in the plan.

I would recommend this book for anyone wanting some good ideas about how to eat healthier. It's a quick read at a great price.
