Just starting and the place I'm dashing too the most is the restroom, that water weight coming off really fast!
I like the sensible eating but need a night snack after dinner. Any suggestions beyond saving a day snack to eat later?

It is probably called the DASH diet because you spend most of your time dashing through the supermarket trying to find these foods amidst all of the junk foods....

Why low fat dairy?

Actually people know about all these,just they're not well motivated to follow.only someone will follow a healthy diet plan after she/he will understand fully that why this is so much important to maintain a good health.

I hope that it works for you. I really do. If you want to learn more, read Grain Brain by Dr Perlmutter or any Gary Taubes book. Saturated Fats are so good for. Grains should be restricted. Low/medium carb; high fat. Time magazine cover in June talks about eating more butter. Eat what our ancestors ate....minus the grains. Good luck.

Uhm.. I already follow this pretty consistently with a few minor exceptions. It's just common sense. Pretty redundant if you ask me..

It might be healthy. But, it's not realistic for most people. At least long term. It's prohibiting items that most of us can't imagine living without, even as part of a healthy lifestyle. Most eating plans state everything in moderation to avoid feeling deprived. This plan has to many no and not enough yes.

Are you kidding me with the "low fat" yogurt? Read some science journals. Fat is no longer bad. You are an enemy of health Brierley.

I am genuinely impressed. Diet advice in a magazine article that doesn't include extreme calorie cuts and DOES include healthy fats. My mother lost 147 pounds at age 42 using the Dash diet and moderate exercise, it is do-able, more affordable than you think and she's kept it off for 6 years :) +1 Eating Well.

Someone put a new name to clean eating habits. Like your article said it's eating the foods we always new to eat.
