9781451665581: The DASH Diet for Hypertension

Based on the largest clinical trial of its kind and endorsed by the American Heart Association, the DASH diet is scientifically proven to significantly reduce high blood pressure after only two weeks.

IN A 2011 RANKING PUBLISHED IN U.S. NEWS & WORLD REPORT, THE DASH DIET WAS RATED #1 BY A PANEL OF MEDICAL EXPERTS INCLUDING SPECIALISTS IN DIABETES AND HEART DISEASE— THE BEST OVERALL DIET AND THE BEST DIET FOR DIABETES!

More than 50 million Americans suffer from high blood pressure, and most of them control it by taking prescription drugs with potentially dangerous side effects; and nearly 24 million Americans have diabetes. But there is a natural and affordable alternative for managing these potentially deadly conditions, reducing your risk of heart failure, stroke, and kidney disease, and achieving the best health of your life: the DASH (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) diet. Developed by a world-class team of doctors and nutritionists, the DASH diet gives you:

· Complete and balanced nutrition for safe short-term and long-term weight loss

· A scientifically proven approach to managing diabetes and heart disease without prescription medication

· A hearty and healthful selection of DASH menus, recipes, and grocery lists

· DASH exercise programs for everyday living

· Key tools including calorie worksheets and a formula to calculate body mass . . . and much more from this revolutionary program, which is recommended by the American Heart Association; the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute; the American Society for Hypertension; and other leading medical authorities.

Review:

The DASH Diet for Hypertension, recommended by the American Heart Association, has been shown in studies to lower blood pressure in two weeks without the use of drugs. The DASH (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) diet emphasizes fruits, vegetables, and low-fat dairy; includes moderate amounts of fish, poultry, and nuts; and reduces consumption of red meat and sweets. Studies from the National Institutes of Health followed 800 participants and found that the DASH diet lowered blood pressure as much as typical medication.

This is no quirky diet--it's the way the major medical groups have been advising us to eat all along, but with a specific formula that tells you how many servings to eat from each Food Pyramid food group. You also get suggestions for exercising moderately, losing weight, reducing salt, and food shopping.

Included are two weeks of daily menus and 62 recipes, with modified favorites like Macaroni and Cheese and Sweet and Sour Pork with Vegetables, plus innovative dishes such as Mango/Black Bean Salad with Grilled Shrimp and Sweet-Potato Chips (baked). The authors are medical hypertension experts associated with Harvard and Duke medical centers. Recommended for people who want to lower their blood pressure or just eat more healthfully. --Joan Price

Book Description SIMON SCHUSTER, United States, 2014. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The DASH diet represents a major breakthrough in modern medical science. The simple but precise DASH diet formula dramatically lowers blood pressure and thus provides an effective treatment for one of the most common and deadly diseases in the western world, hypertension. It is just as effective as a typical drug for hypertension. And it works in young and old, male and female, and all ethnic groups In addition to significantly lowering blood pressure naturally and without drugs, the DASH diet is consistent with diets currently recommended to reduce the risk of cancer, heart disease, stroke and osteoporosis. It was also scientifically proven to improve the way a person feels. The unique feature of the DASH diet is that it is high in fruits, vegetables, and low-fat dairy products (all typically underrepresented in the American diet), and also that it uses these foods in the right combinations. The book includes sections on how to follow the DASH diet to lose weight, on combining DASH with salt reduction for even greater blood pressure reduction, and on simple but effective tricks to get started and stick with the DASH diet.
