For once, something that sounds too good to be true really works. Developed by the medical school staffs of Harvard, Duke, Johns Hopkins, and Louisiana State University after a large clinical trial, the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) diet significantly reduces blood pressure, cholesterol, and homocysteine levels through diet alone, and experts agree that widespread adoption of the DASH diet would result in a substantial decrease in coronary heart disease and stroke. The diet includes eating four servings of fruits, four servings of vegetables, and two or three servings of low-fat dairy foods daily. Fatty foods, red meat, and sugar-sweetened foods and beverages are limited. Moore, who chaired the DASH trial, and his fellow authors explain the history of the DASH research as well the diet itself and provide clear and achievable tips on improving health and incorporating the diet into daily life. Two weeks of diet plans and 61 tempting recipes are included. The steps listed for making lifelong dietary changes are excellent. Recommended for all consumer health collections. Janet M.

A medication-free alternative to help millions of Americans lower their high blood pressure and live healthier, longer lives. Thomas Pickering, M.D. Director, Integrative and Behavioral Cardiac Health Program and Hypertension Section, Mount Sinai School of Medicine This is not just another fad diet, but one that is scientifically proven to be the best for people who are concerned about their blood pressure. The DASH studies were a major breakthrough in the prevention and treatment of hypertension, and the diet is now described in a practical and straightforward manner. Aram V. Chobanian, M.D. Dean, Boston University Medical School The DASH diet is an exciting, new nutritional approach to the management of hypertension, and its effectiveness has been well documented by carefully controlled scientific studies. I recommend it not only for hypertensive patients but also for nutritionists, medical practitioners, and anyone interested in adopting a healthier lifestyle. Shiriki K. Kumanyika, Ph.D., R.D., M.P.H. Center for Clinical Epidemiology & Biostatistics University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine This book is amazingly clear, comprehensive, and user-friendly. There is a lot of "what to do" and "how to do it." And also "why" for the consumer who wants to understand why to choose DASH over the other diets that are out there. This book will even convince the skeptics who don't believe that ordinary foods can make a big difference. There is no trick here. Dr. Ronald Krauss Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, University of California, Chair, American Heart Association Council on Nutrition, Physical Activity, and Metabolism An excellent, user-friendly resource for people with high blood pressure, as well as anyone who wants to improve their heart health. Norman K. Hollenberg, M.D., Ph.D. Professor of Medicine and Radiology, Harvard Medical School This book fills an unmet need, providing clear and simple guidelines supported by solid data obtained from outstanding studies. I have no doubt that it will work.
