U.S. News Ranks Best And Worst Diets Of 2014

U.S. News Ranks Best And Worst Diets Of 2014

Commented Jan 7, 2014 at 11:37:02 in Healthy Living

“The DASH diet was ranked as the Best Diet, Healthiest, and Best for Diabetes, for the 4th year in a row. It shouldn't be "obscure." It is too important to stay in the shadow. As the author of The DASH Diet Weight Loss Solution, The Everyday DASH Diet Cookbook, and The DASH Diet Action Plan, I have made it my mission to make the DASH diet easy to follow, even in busy real lives.

DASH Diet Benefits Heart Failure Patients With High Blood Pressure

DASH Diet Benefits Heart Failure Patients With High Blood Pressure

Commented Sep 27, 2013 at 11:17:34 in Healthy Living

“The DASH diet is so much more than sodium restriction. The blood pressure benefits of the DASH diet are believed be due to the high levels of potassium, magnesium, and calcium, that come from liberal amounts of fruits, vegetables, and low-fat and nonfat dairy, and nuts, along with mostly whole grains, lean meats, poultry, fish, and heart-healthy oils. If the DASH diet is described as just a low-sodium plan, this study would be considered "ho hum, what's new?" Additional aspects of the DASH diet that can improve heart health are that it is high in fiber and rich in antioxidants.

Let's not reduce the DASH diet to just calling it a low sodium diet, which misses the key benefits of the entire plan.

Proof That Fast Food Salads Are Anything But Healthy

Proof That Fast Food Salads Are Anything But Healthy

“Healthy food is about more than just calories. Adding more fruits and vegetables is an important goal for everyone. A salad with 400 calories is much healthier than a 400 calorie burger. This isn't the 90s. Fat isn't the enemy. And if your salad has fruit in it, so much the better. Fast food is a reality for many people, so why discourage food that is clearly more nutritious.

“We've had a dog, 16.5yrs. old when she passed...looked like she had a heart attack. She was a midsized dog....and then we've always had a Siamese cat or two and they live quite a long time....we've been lucky as far as not having sick pets.”

“DASH-sodium compared the DASH diet and various levels of sodium. With DASH and severe sodium restriction, blood pressure improvement was significant only for AA women, as compared with DASH at higher sodium levels. A 1500 mg sodium diet is almost impossible to follow while including other key DASH foods. It is more important to include fruits, veggies, low-fat and nonfat dairy, than to go to extremes with sodium restriction.”

“Actually the original DASH study was done using a diet with an average sodium content of 3400 mg per day. And it did lower blood pressure for everyone, including African Americans. DASH is much more than just lowering sodium.

“This story is so misleading. The DASH diet works extremely well for African Americans. However, the educational materials used here did not promote adoption as well for African Americans.

And, please note that the DASH diet is so much more than sodium reduction. It is all about adding more vegetables, fruits, low-fat and nonfat dairy, nuts, beans, and seeds, along with more whole grains, lean meats, fish, and poultry, and heart healthy fats. All of this can be absolutely culturally appropriate for African Americans.

Adopting the DASH diet can seem challenging for everyone, which is why I wrote The DASH Diet Action Plan, to make it much easier for everyone to follow. And, DASH is especially important for blacks, since they are more likely to have high blood pressure and suffer more severe consequences from it.

“The goal is not to lose weight. The goal is to reach and maintain a healthy weight. This means, preserving muscle mass (as much as possible), so that the weight loss is easier to maintain, and eating in a way that makes you healthier. Did she do either of these things?
