MAGGIE, DASH pretty much is the same as the Spark approach. We like to call it a healthy lifestyle it changes our eating habits for the better.
However we like to incorporate plenty of exercise, and support here. Using the trackers has helped me so much and I do read many Spark articles. They are short and to the point much better than reading 100 page books. Check on Spark search. ~~~~DASH Diet ~~~~~Food to avoid with hypertension. . Breathing exercises that help hypertension.~~~~ Yoga that helps hypertension.
When you think of a question just check it out I almost always find some new information. Pat in Maine.

back. Glad your home sold and you have another to go to. I've heard DASH is very good. I wish you all the best. I'm on medicine for my hypertension.

I needed to drop Spark People for a short time while I packed up my belongings and put my house on the market. Now, house is sold and I'm moving back into a house where I've been before, as soon as the renters move out. So....I'm ready to start Spark tracking again. I'm sneaking up on the New Year by beginning my tracking and point gathering and exercising a little bit at a time, and by New Year's Day I should have some of it in control, sort of.
Progress, not perfection is one of my favorite expressions. It helps me deal with the days when not everything goes as I wish it would.
My doctor told me I need to deal with high blood pressure and I asked her to give me 3 months to bring it down with exercise and diet. She recommended the DASH diet which has a focus on lowering hypertension. So, I have a couple of books with recipes, and menus and I'm off to a start. Wish me luck.
