Publisher's Summary

The DASH Diet Action Plan is a complete guide to lowering blood pressure and cholesterol without medication - through a proven diet, exercise, and weight loss program.

Unlike any diet before it, DASH, which stands for Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension, came out of groundbreaking NIH-funded research. No diet has a medical pedigree like this one - it is the real deal. In fact, medical protocol actually requires doctors to recommend DASH to all patients diagnosed with hypertension or pre-hypertension. And now - finally - the popularity of this diet will have the chance to catch up to its proven efficacy with the program in The DASH Diet Action Plan.

The DASH diet is rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, low-fat and nonfat dairy, lean meats, fish, beans, and nuts. It is grounded in healthy eating principles that lower blood pressure; reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke, and some types of cancer; and support for reaching and maintaining a healthy weight.

Written by the foremost dietician trained in DASH, Marla Heller, this book contains a simple, actionable plan that can fit seamlessly into everyone's life and lifestyle. Complete with recipes, meal plans, shopping lists, and more, this comprehensive, proven plan does not rely on magical combinations or forbidden foods - just fabulous, healthy eating!

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I don't know what I was thinking. you can definitively not get recipes written to you this way. I thought it was more educational about do's and dont's, food values, etc. instead it is just someone reading recipes, hard to follow and boring.
It is probably good in paper version as a kitchen resource, but not in an audio book. Not for me!

DASH Diet audio book is Dry

Would you try another book from Marla Heller and/or Suehyla El-Attar?

No thank you.

Has The DASH Diet Action Plan turned you off from other books in this genre?

Not completely but it is stiff and doesn't translate well to audio book.

What didn’t you like about Suehyla El-Attar’s performance?

It was robotic and lacked anything that retains your attention.

Did The DASH Diet Action Plan inspire you to do anything?

No it did not, felt like many other calorie counting diets. Very rigid.

Any additional comments?

Nothing personal, but I rather have a refund.
