  • Here's a diet you can really stick with

    By AVFocht
    I admit it―I read every diet book that comes down the pike, and here’s one I can really endorse. The DASH Diet was developed by the National Institutes of Health, Johns Hopkins and Duke University among others, so it’s no fad. And after you go through all the math―figuring out your BMI and basal metabolic rate―the rest is surprisingly simple. There’s no deprivation and the recipes are a snap (no fancy ingredients I never heard of, thank you very much!). Bottom line, I can actually stick with it.
  • Tasty, Healthy & Delicious!!!

    By Ms. MaiSays
    The meals in this DASH Diet cookbook are beyond delicious! I love that I'm learning to season my food without over-salting, or even using any salt at times! The detailed prep instructions are wonderful without being overly wordy and help greatly with the transition to the diet. I have my own workout plan for now, but I like that it includes one if I want to switch it up. If you're more than twenty twice, that's the age group that heart disease, diabetes and high blood start to manifest, so do yourself a favor and get this cookbook!

    The Dash Diet Cookbook is amazing because it is not only filled with delicious, healthy recipes but it is also an information hotspot for the Dash Diet. There are several chapters in the beginning of the book committed to explaining the science behind the Dash Diet, the health benefits, planning and transitioning into the diet itself, shopping guides, menu plans, and even calorie requirements! There are so many great recipes for so many different occasions, its hard not to love this book!
  • You Won’t Miss the Fat and Salt

    By HlthNutz
    The tastiest foods are often the unhealthiest, but this book proves that doesn’t always have to be true. Designed to lower blood pressure by decreasing sodium intake, the recipes are just as delicious and satisfying as the high fat and stroke inducing versions. Ingredients loaded with a lot of unnecessary fat and salt are replaced with healthier ones without sacrificing any of the flavors. Unhealthy diets are to blame for many common health problems such as heart disease and diabetes, and following the advice and recipes in this book is a simple and easy way of helping prevent such conditions.
