Book Review

Book Review-The DASH Diet Action Plan by Marla Heller, M.S., R.D.

Want to lower your blood pressure in as little as two weeks? This book will show you how by following the well-researched and highly recommended DASH eating plan. The DASH Diet has also been the #1 Best Diet Overall for the past two years. No fad diet or gimmicks here! You'll eat real food that is unprocessed and filling. The author and dietitian, Marla Heller, will guide you through this easy-to-follow eating plan with 28 days of meals and recipes. Meal plans include three different calorie levels (1200, 1600, 2000) to accommodate a wide range of calorie needs (*See note below). This book also includes simple tools to personalize your DASH Diet Action Plan, tips for eating on-the-run, advice on healthy weight loss, and exercise tips for every lifestyle. Come check out this book from the Karen Yontz Center lending library to lower your blood pressure and reduce your risk for heart disease and stroke. This book is also available for purchase in the Karen Yontz Cardiac Awareness Center.

*Note: Calorie levels in the book are approximate based on formulas that are not applicable to everyone. To find out your unique calorie needs, call the Karen Yontz Center to schedule a BodyGem resting metabolic rate test. It's a simple breathing test that can be done in under 10 minutes. Knowing your resting metabolic rate means a personalized calorie level, leading to more successful weight loss and/or weight maintenance.
