The complete guide to lowering blood pressure and cholesterol—without medication—through a proven diet, exercise, and weight loss program

Finally, the number-one 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 research funded by the National Institutes for Health. Now Marla Heller, MS, RD, who was trained by one of the primary architects of the DASH diet and is herself the leading dietitian putting DASH into action, shares the secret to making the diet easy and accessible.

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 lifestyle. It includes:

  • Twenty-eight 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

Now you can revolutionize your health and change your life without medication. There are no magical combinations, no forbidden foods—just fabulous, healthy eating.
