I'm actually enjoying being on this diet. I don't feel deprived. I'm eating a lot of good food and am rarely hungry. As a matter of fact, I usually have trouble eating all of the food that is on the day's menu because I am full before the end of the meal.
I like the DASH diet because I don't have to count calories or points or anything else. The book provides 28 days of meal plans using real food that I cook myself, not special pre-prepared food from the freezer section of the grocery store. The menus are easy to follow and have good food on them (including an occasional chocolate chip cookie.) I haven't followed the menus exactly, but that is OK. The book gives suggestions as to how to substitute appropriate foods for the menu items. The emphasis is on lean protein (fish, chicken, pork, some beef, egg whites, etc.), lots of fruits and vegitables, fiber and low sodium.
One key change that has made this diet successful is portion control. I bought a kitchen scale (to weigh food, not me) and use it, along with my measuring cups and spoons, every meal. For breakfast today, I had 1/2 cup scrambled egg whites on a whole wheat tortilla topped with avocado and 2 tablespoons of salsa, 6 ounces of pineapple, 6 ounces of orange juice and 8 ounces of milk. That is a lot of tasty food! I have no idea how many calories it was, but by measuring each item, I am confident that I ate a well balanced, healthy meal and I am on track for another successful day.
I've tried lots of diets in the past. This is the first one that I would gladly follow for the rest of my life.
Get the book.
Why I think both books are important:
While The Dash focuses on the diet aspects of improving your health, in "Go Wild," Ratey talks about the importance of mental health and how exercise, being outside, being social, sleep, AND diet, all addressed in concert, can change your life.
The guidelines in The Dash are pretty easy to follow, if you are willing to make a few modifications in your life. It took us a couple of weeks to get our heads around how to do this low sodium diet thing, but we're doing great now, and I hardly even miss the salt.
I highly recommend this book if you really want to get healthy and start to take control of your health. It will make all the difference in the world.
