All You Need to Know About the DASH Diet

Are you a bride-to-be looking to lose some weight before your wedding?

Caroline Bienert explains why the DASH Diet has been ranked as the healthiest diet, and the best diet for 5 years in a row.

“One of the latest diet trends out there and one that has been hugely popular with nutritional experts like me is the DASH diet.”

It is proven to improve health, has a balance of healthy food groups, and it actually works. The Dash diet can lower blood pressure and cholesterol, and is associated with lower risk of several types of cancer, heart disease, stroke, heart failure, kidney stones, reduced risk of developing diabetes, and can slow the progression of kidney disease.

While the DASH diet was originally developed as an eating style to help lower blood pressure, it has been found to also be a fabulous plan for weight loss.

Because it has an emphasis on real foods, heavy on fruits and vegetables, balanced with the right amount of protein, DASH is the perfect weight loss solution. It is both filling and satisfying and because it’s healthy, you can follow it for your whole life. It’s a plan that you can feed your entire family, with larger portion sizes for those who don't need to watch their weight. It helps you lose weight easily and many don’t, even feel as though they’re on a diet, whilst it’s actually makes you healthier!

Not only is this a diet that helps to harness the health benefits of weight loss but it is also pumped up on plant rich foods which will help you to become and look younger inside and out.

It fully supports both vegetarians and meat eaters with meal plans and recipes and is based on real, unprocessed and additive-free foods. The DASH Diet gives you a fresh start to healthy eating.

The diet has special benefits for people who carry their excess weight around the middle, or those who have metabolic syndrome such as type 2 diabetes, PCOS, or postmenopausal weight gain;  

To sum up the DASH eating plan:

Emphasizes vegetables, fruits, and fat-free or low-fat dairy productsIncludes whole grains, fish, poultry, beans, seeds, nuts, and vegetable oilsLimits sodium, sweets, sugary beverages, and red meats

In terms of nutrition content, DASH is:

Low in saturated and trans fats

Rich in potassium, calcium, magnesium, fiber, and protein
