I do know a little bit about nutrition (what heavy person doesn't?). I wanted a plan that followed sound nutritional guidelines and had some research to back it up. This one does. Marla does a great job of explaining why the things I learned about nutrition in my 20s aren't working for me in my 40s, and then lays out, clearly, concisely, and with menus and recipes, what *will* work...and it did. I was nervous about cutting down on grains--I attempted the Atkins plan a few times and it just made me sick--but I felt fine. The menu plans are satisfying and tasty, and Marla has really helped me to re-frame the way I think about food.
The 2-week turbocharge is a great way to kick off the plan: all the claims about resetting your body's expectations proved true for me. In the 3 months I've been on this plan I started a new job; celebrated my anniversary, Halloween, my birthday, & Thanksgiving, and now find myself surrounded by all the Christmas treats...and still find it easier than it's ever been to make conscious choices about what I eat.
I hope you find this helpful...if you've been fighting this battle for decades and began to think nothing was ever going to work, give this an honest shot. It may change your life. My weigh-in this morning was the lowest it's been in ten years.
Gotta go...exercise class starts soon!
Flash forward to now. My blood pressure is high and my doctor is on the verge of increasing medicine dosage if I don't get it under control through my lifestyle. I had forgotten the basics of DASH so I purchased this book to refresh my memory. This book is really great in that it's an absolute easy read. I have not tried the 14 day reset, because I only purchased the book as a refresher on DASH diet basics/ theory. If I do try it I may update this review. I say it's worth it for anyone looking for a guide to DASH. It really does work for Lowering blood pressure and other issues.
Here are my pros & cons to the book:
Pros: The book lists a great deal of ingredients that are essential to the DASH diet lifestyle
Pros: It is not a "starve yourself, restrictive diet". This diet focuses on food choice with the overall goal being decreased blood pressure (and other benefits)
Pros: The book explains the science behind how it works in lay mans terms. (If you need a more technical breakdown , then this may not be for you)
Pros: The book contains a whole section of recipes - recipes that are easy and use regular - average person ingredients (Nothing crazy that the average person wouldnt have in their cupboard/spice rack/freezer
Pros: The books contains an easy to understand "Daily guide" that generalizes the types of foods you should eat for Breakfast meals/Snacks/Lunch Meals/Dinner Meals. The daily guide breaks down the food group types for each meal time
Cons: At the times the books makes references to things without explaining in full detail what those references mean. (The author lists "Non-Starchy Vegetables", but she fails to list in detail what those are. She does list them, but not in detail. A simple google search filled in the mystery for me)
Cons: The author is impartial to artificial sweetener, but she does recommend foods that contain them. (For anyone worried, its only one meal recommendation, but for folks that are concerned about them - just stay clear of it)
Cons: The books is mainly recipes and ingredients. A large portion of the books is dedicated to this. It is recommended that you read the ENTIRE BOOK before starting DASH. It's tempting to start after chapter 4, but the ENTIRE BOOKS contents are needed to understand the diet. Its an extremely LIGHT & EASY READ.
