This is another book that gives dietary advice on sensible,well-publicised criteria. Weight loss is the overiding message by healthy eating, not starvation, calorie -restriction. My only proviso with the book is the non-evidence based, scientifically authenticated (peer-reviewed journals) - sorry to be verbose. Sterols can reduce cholesterol by a few points that may not be significant within the context of other risk factors. Stress and being overweight can affect blood pressure, yes. Dietary restriction in itself will not affect cholesterol (trans fats in cakes,fast foods etc excepted) or blood pressure (salt yes) apart from the above provisos. Read the book by all means but get a check-up from your family doctor. Smoking, alcohol, exercise, being overweight, blood pressure, diabetes, family and personal history are all relevant and interplay. Cholesterol is a 'name' that includes other constituents as explained. I would not want my patients to summarise their own medical situation without professional, prognostic or objective markers. Taken in conjunction, the book is fine. If you are reading this book at least there is an awareness of a potential problem. Check it out! Sort it. Lose weight and feel the benefit short and long-term).

If you already have a basic knowledge of healthy eating, you really don't need this book. I already eat a mainly wholefoods, homecooked diet and wanted to tweak my diet to more closely match the DASH plan as my blood pressure has crept up recently. Basically, all it says is- eat moderate amounts of lean meat, nuts, beans and pulses, wholegrains and low fat dairy and lots of fruit and veg, and minimal salt, sugar and alcohol, and do some exercise. That's it. The advice on healthy fats and cholesterol is outdated, but then the DASH diet itself is out of date in that respect so I can't really blame the book for that. There's also more focus on calories and weightloss than I would prefer.

If I followed the advice in this book my diet would be less healthy than it is now. Here's an example- in Starbucks if you don't like coffee order a skim milk hot chocolate and a raisin bagel and eat half. Well, if you think that would be in improvement on your current diet, for example if you eat a lot of processed junk, this might be the book for you. All that happened to me was I ended up worrying that I can't make milk kefir with skimmed milk!

If you want details on the DASH diet I would recommend the NIH National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute website which has two PDFs available- a lovely clear and concise six page summary, and a more lengthy explanation.

An interesting and well researched book. It manages to make you qestion and seek to find answers. A little confusing with the charts to fill out, and not very helpful on weights etc - it uses the American 'cup' measurements, and yes, I know that I can convert them but it makes it a bit of a chore.

Nonetheless very insightful, and well worth a read.

I got this book on Kindle for ease but unfortunately it's not suitable for it and would be much better in book form. What I have read is interesting full of good ideas and advice for bringing blood pressure down so it's worth buying (in book form)

The DASH Diet Action Plan has already proved beneficial to my health and general well-being. The book is very clear and informative and set out in such a way that it is easy to understand how and why the action plan will work. I particularly found the 28 days of DASH menus helpful to set me on the right track. I would certainly recommend this book to anyone needing to lower their blood pressure and cholesterol, and develop a healthy eating plan for the rest of their life.

This diet works. Unfortunately it did not lower my blood pressure in the first 14 days, and my cholesterol levels have not yet been analysed. However, I did become much less bloated and I did lose a few pounds, something I had not achieved for many years, and it did give me a lot more energy. I found the diet easy to follow and adhere to without feeling I had made much sacrifice. One complaint however, is that there are a few typical errors (i.e. 6 ozs of strawberries which equals 170 grams !!!) as a mid-afternoon snack). I'm not sure but I suspect it should have read "4-6 strawberries" instead.
