The DASH Diet for Beginners: The Guide to Getting Started
The DASH Diet was developed some years ago for people suffering from high blood pressure (hypertension), funded by the National Institutes of Health. After the introduction explaining the history of the diet and the basic outlines of it, there are five sections: Understanding the DASH Diet, DASH Diet Health Plan, Transitioning to the DASH Diet, DASH DIET in Action, 150 DASH Diet Recipes. The DASH Diet in Action section covers cooking methods and a 30-Day meal plan for health and weight loss. The 30-day plan has quite a number of recipes in it and includes a couple of snacks for each day. Well more than half the book is made up of recipes. Besides those in the 30-Day meal plan, there are five chapters of nothing but recipes. These cover breakfasts, lunches, snacks and appetizers, dinners, and desserts. Yes, that’s right – desserts. Quite a number of these are illustrated with beautiful, four-color photographs. For the most part, there is little new in this book. For years, nutritionists and doctors have been recommending the very strategies found in this book. Eat whole grains, vegetables, fruits, less red meat, and watch your sodium intake.
