The original DASH diet plan (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) was developed to lower blood pressure without medication. Since then, numerous studies have shown that the DASH diet reduces the risk of many diseases, including some kinds of cancer, stroke, heart disease, heart failure, kidney stones, and diabetes. It has been proven to be an effective way to lose weight and become healthier at the same time. Beginning with an easy-to-read, non-scientific explanation of DASH and its benefits, DASH for Weight Loss is a comprehensive plan that includes menus, recipes, exercise prescriptions, weight-loss tools, and all the need-to-know information for setting up a DASH kitchen and getting started right away. The book will teach followers how they can adapt DASH to gluten-free, vegan, vegetarian, and dairy-free eating styles, and will include resources like substitution lists, a grain cooking guide, and basic vegetable cooking charts.
