    DASH Diet Became Better, February 8, 2014

    At the beginning of this book, I read a sentence that made me immediately wary. I’ll quote the “just use common sense” sentence: “All you do is pay attention to what you’re eating and eat good food in intelligent portions.” I also took exception to the claim that, “It’s easy.” In fact, my fried, super-sized, pie-lovin’ appetite took exception to that little factoid. I was just put off by the oversimplification and generalization.

    That said…

    I was pleasantly surprised as I read that there is some meat (pun intended!) to this diet and this book. I started to come around when I read how widely accepted it is – from the U.S. government to magazines like the ‘U.S. News and World Report’ – for being a no-frills, no-fad weight-loss approach.

    The central hook is to lower one’s sodium by consuming about 2,000 per day. It explains why you won’t feel deprived or tired, and how research proves this out. I thought the book did a good job articulating types of food to increase or decrease and the easy-to-read food group guidelines and serving-size table. I also liked the handy way it suggests to measure portion size.
    Eventually, it makes it clear that you need to plan or you won’t succeed. I appreciated that honesty. To help, there are weekly recipes and shopping lists, and it offers ways to make the most out of breakfast, lunch and dinner by doing things like eating a protein-rich snack.

    The menu was fairly good, but there were some strange breakfast menus (frittatas most every morning). A lot of the recipes were pretty “normal,” though – like Spaghetti with meat sauce.

    Overall, I was pleased. This was a good resource for someone with hypertension or owns one too many pairs of tight pants.

    Great for energy!, February 11, 2014

    There have been tons of fad diets over the past few years, but this book explores one that actually seems to work. I’ve actually been on the DASH diet for a little bit, and with it I felt more energetic and youthful that before. It’s pretty simple really, stay away from fatty foods and gravitate towards healthy vegetables and lean meats. This book is unique among its peers because it not only gives you recipes that follow these guidelines, but also gives you a step-by-step instruction of how to stick to the plan. I would highly recommend it for anyone who has trouble staying with a diet. The best thing? It really helped me leave my stress at the door. Give it a try.
