What’s the DASH Diet and Why Doctors Call It the Best Diet

Doctors say that this diet is the most effective way to improve your overall condition. According to the National Institute of Health, it scored a 3.3 out of 5 in the “Weight Loss Effectiveness” category and 4.5 out of 5 in “Health Usefulness”. Out of 40 diets evaluated, it was chosen number one! So who is this all-star? It’s something called the DASH diet.

The DASH diet is an easy, safe, and useful plan that can help you feel better and get rid of excess weight. You can lose weight gradually, no starving or yo-yo dieting. It won’t shock or stress your body out.

DASH stands for Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension. It’s a diet developed specifically to reduce blood pressure in those with hypertension. But scientists understood later on that this diet resolves tons of other health issues. It reduces cholesterol, prevents stroke and heart failure, and brings the weight down to a healthy level, even for those with obesity. Plus, it’s considered the best diet to prevent diabetes. Besides controlling blood pressure, people following it managed to improve insulin resistance.

The DASH diet wasn’t originally designed for weight loss, but there have been some studies proving that this eating plan can help people get rid of unwanted pounds.

The DASH diet balances all the necessary nutrients and minerals, like calcium, potassium, protein, and fiber, that are responsible for brain and overall organ function. It improves the condition of your hair and skin as well.

What’s convenient about this diet is that you don’t have to calculate and monitor each nutrient: you just need to reduce your salt intake and eat certain recommended foods, for instance, fruits, vegetables, grains, protein-rich foods, and dairy products.
Compared to trendy crash diets, DASH is different. This is a complete lifestyle change. It’s for people who need to take care of their eating habits throughout their lives. There’s no cutting out or starving involved. You can have all sorts of tasty dishes.

  6. Diets are no good. If you want to lose weight and keep weight off you HAVE to chage the way you eat permanently rather than temporarily.

  7. > "It's about the quality of the food, not the quantity"
    > "Tip 1. Drink 67 oz of fluids per day"

  19. You’ll never lose weight having 5x half cup servings of dried fruit or 67oz of juice a day, which is supposedly allowed. This video is so flawed

  20. I think I would need a private chef to prepare the food and get everything for me.

  21. Why is tobacco intake prohibited?

  22. Beware, the DASH diet is recommended 1,500mg of salt per day. The video says it's 3 tsp which is aprox. 5,600mg and over 4 times the recommended amount. You are supposed to reduce your salt intake, not increase it!

  23. Its way too strict for me ….i like plenty fruit

  24. This does not sound that great diet at all. Its enough to eat 1-2 times a day. You also should not need to eat that much animal protein. Avoiding sugar is good though.

  25. Soooo….this 'diet' is basically eating healthy?
