#1 Diet Plan

The DASH Diet, originally developed by top health and nutrition experts, was ranked as the best diet plan by U.S. News and World Report for the past two years. DASH stands for Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension. While it focuses on maintaining low sodium intake to reduce blood pressure, the DASH Diet is also a great way to lose weight, control diabetes, and lower cholesterol. This is the famous diet that has been clinically proven by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI), and is highly recommended by physicians all over the country.


A Way of Life that Focuses on Healthy Foods

Similar to the Biggest Loser diet, the DASH Diet is rich in fruits, vegetables, fat-free or low-fat milk and milk products, whole grains, fish, poultry, beans, seeds, and nuts. It also contains less sodium, added sugars, fats, and red meats than the typical American diet. This heart healthy way of eating is also lower in saturated fat, trans fat, and cholesterol, and is rich in nutrients that are associated with lowering blood pressure—mainly potassium, magnesium, calcium, protein, and fiber.
