The New York Times Bestseller—Based on the Diet Ranked “#1 Best Diet Overall” by US NEWS & WORLD REPORT—for 4 Years in a Row!

Finally, the #1 ranked DASH diet is popularized and user-friendly. Unlike any diet before it, DASH, which stands for Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension, came out of groundbreaking NIH-funded research. Now, Marla Heller, MS, RD, who was trained by one of the primary architects of the DASH diet and is herself the leading dietician putting DASH into action for over ten years, shares the secret to making the diet easy and accessible, in THE DASH DIET ACTION PLAN.
Rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, low-fat and nonfat dairy, lean meats, fish, beans, and nuts, DASH is grounded in healthy eating principles that lower blood pressure; reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke, and some types of cancer; and support reaching and maintaining a healthy weight.

No diet has a medical pedigree like DASH, and this book is a simple, actionable plan that can fit seamlessly into everyone’s life and lifestyle. It includes:

  • 28 days of meal plans at different calorie ranges
  • Simple tools to help you personalize a DASH Diet Action Plan for guaranteed success
  • DASH-friendly recipes and shopping lists
  • Tips for eating on-the-run
  • Advice on healthy weight loss and exercise for every lifestyle.

Editorial Reviews

Originally self-published in 2002, the DASH diet (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) is based on studies conducted by the National Institutes of Health. Dietician Heller here presents a diet plan that will help readers who suffer from hypertension, high cholesterol, and type 2 diabetes. Her plan supports the now-standard precept that eating a variety of good food—especially fruits, vegetables, and whole grains—plus adhering to a regular exercise program will result in weight loss, which, in turn, will benefit one’s arteries and improve one’s metabolism.
