Excellent article and truthful. The dash diet has allowed me to loss a little over 50 lbs. I used to weigh 250 now I weigh 192 and hoping to loss another 60 lbs. My blood pressure is also doing better on- this dash diet. It is just common sense and salt sense. To much salt is not good.
Take care, Jadona2006

I have the "white coat syndrome" but the BP is up at other times as well....depends on what is going on....my HDL is an envy to the doc, I exercise regularly, and watch what I eat.....I do think in women especially there is a connection with hormones and BP...When my lady doc (left her practice to work in emergency) was telling me how annoying it was to see obese people with low BP and lean people with high BP, she wondered that as well......This article is good!!!!

I'ts great to have some food guidelines and suggestions for us... thank you.
