The DASH Diet for Weight Loss
The DASH Diet has been named the Best Overall Diet by U.S. News & World Report for two years in a row and is recommended by the U.S. Department of Agriculture as an ideal eating pattern for all Americans. Now, The DASH Diet for Weight Loss by Dr. Thomas Moore with Megan C. Murphy, MPH and Mark Jenkins adapts the diet for those who want to reach their healthiest weight.
Since its development by a team of researchers led by Dr. Thomas Moore and funded by the NIH, the DASH (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) Diet has been proven to lower high blood pressure and cholesterol, reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke, and enable participants to lose weight and maintain healthy weight loss over time. The diet consists of varied daily menus incorporating your favorite foods easily found at the grocery store. The DASH Diet for Weight Loss shows readers how to adapt favorite recipes to the diet, incorporate exercise, design meal plans, and much more. Publisher’s Weekly named The DASH Diet for Weight Loss one of its Top 10 Lifestyle books for Spring 2012.
