  1. DASH for Heart Health The DASH diet can certainly help you lose weight – it wouldn’t be much of a diet otherwise – but its focus is on decreased risk of diabetes, general heart health and lowering blood pressure. That’s in the name: DASH stands for Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension. This isn’t some radical new diet, but rather one based on a National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI) study from the 90s that is finally getting the recognition that it deserves.I won’t lie and tell you that this is an easy diet. It takes a bit to get started, including a bit of math homework to determine your Body Mass Index and a few other vital statistics, and when I saw that butter was nixed from the menu I nearly cried. For the sake of my heart, however, I suppose I can crunch a few numbers, while Chatham’s meal plans and recipes allow for some delicious dishes, ranging from the simple to the extravagant to fit any schedule. He even sneaks in a few cheats – because he understands that we all need to indulge from time to time!

  2. Great DASH Diet Book! My father was recently diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes and once I learned the DASH diet was rated number one for combating the disease, I’ve been searching for the right book to introduce to my dad. Chatham’s is the best resource I’ve found, so far. You are instructed how to slowly ease into the diet, using the tools included, like worksheets, reference tables, food guides, menu planners, and of course, plenty of recipes. It’s informative, providing plenty of background information on how the DASH diet was created and tested, and also stresses the importance of exercise and fitness, including fitness plan. Most important, to me and my dad, is that Chatham’s book is really reader friendly and easy to follow.
