From what I've read so far, it's been around for quite a while. The study that preceded it was done in 1992 (if I remember correctly).

Even thought the name (DASH Diet) to me sounds kind of like the next diet "craze" it really isn't. It's just a well balanced diet that focuses on eating more fresh fruits & vegetables.

Blessings,

I've never heard of it before. I'm just watching the calories and the sodium and my blood pressure has dropped a few points already.

Late last night I posted a link to the DASH Diet for controlling HBP. DASH stands for Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension. I thought this was appropriate since many people with heart problems also suffer from high blood pressure.

I was wondering how many on this team have heard of the DASH Diet & how many (if any) have tried it. It can also be used as a weight loss diet as well as helping to control cholesterol issues.

Blessings,
