What's the DASH Diet and Why Doctors Call It the Best Diet

How to lose belly fat? How to lose weight fast without exercises? Doctors say that this diet is the most effective way to improve your overall condition.
According to the National Institute of Health, it scored a 3.3 out of 5 in the “Weight Loss Effectiveness” category and 4.5 out of 5 in “Health Usefulness”. Out of 40 diets evaluated, it was chosen number one! So who is this all-star? It’s something called the DASH diet.

The DASH diet is an easy, safe, and useful plan that can help you feel better and get rid of excess weight. You can lose weight gradually, no starving or yo-yo dieting. It won’t shock or stress your body out.

DASH stands for Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension. It’s a diet developed specifically to reduce blood pressure in those with hypertension. But scientists understood later on that this diet resolves tons of other health issues. It reduces cholesterol, prevents stroke and heart failure, and brings the weight down to a healthy level, even for those with obesity. Plus, it’s considered the best diet to prevent diabetes. Besides controlling blood pressure, people following it managed to improve insulin resistance.

The DASH diet wasn’t originally designed for weight loss, but there have been some studies proving that this eating plan can help people get rid of unwanted pounds.

The DASH diet balances all the necessary nutrients and minerals, like calcium, potassium, protein, and fiber, that are responsible for brain and overall organ function. It improves the condition of your hair and skin as well.

What’s convenient about this diet is that you don’t have to calculate and monitor each nutrient: you just need to reduce your salt intake and eat certain recommended foods, for instance, fruits, vegetables, grains, protein-rich foods, and dairy products.
Compared to trendy crash diets, DASH is different. This is a complete lifestyle change. It’s for people who need to take care of their eating habits throughout their lives. There’s no cutting out or starving involved. You can have all sorts of tasty dishes.

    You eat 5 times a day + 8 snacks… Lol is there even time to breath? Lol this should be called the COW diet, eating all day is sooooo unhealthy and will affect your insulin! Give your body a break…

  6. Mr.P on November 6, 2022 at 9:08 am

    Smoking 🚬🚭 is prohibited
    but you can eat anything you want OK 🤣🤣🤣

  7. Lemlem on November 6, 2022 at 9:11 am

    I dont think this is okey for our health you know eating many times a day more than 2/3 times is not okey ,
    In my opinion I suggest vegan diet, intermideat fast, runing and some cardio
    Mostly intermideat and some cardio is EPIC , just try it for a 1/2 month consistently with vegan diet and see the Change !!🤟🔥

  19. MajesticWeebLikesMacnCheese on November 6, 2022 at 9:25 am

    Yeah I didn’t do this diet but I did use weight watchers and I was 190 pounds a few months ago in April then I went down to 188 pounds in a week then I went back up 2 in another week back to where I was and that got me pretty down and now like 3 months later after exercising non stop and eating well, I’m still 189 and lost a 1/4th inch off my waist. Yeah, I, not doing well I think I’m not getting sleep though.

  20. Daniela Harcarufkova on November 6, 2022 at 9:25 am

    To me this diet makes sense and it is manageable to follow. Eating clean, unprocessed foods in small portions (half a cup), preventing hunger attacks. I’ll give it a try, as sticking to harsh diets only ends in failurein my case.

  21. Feruza Almatova on November 6, 2022 at 9:27 am

    Frequent eating definitely causes insulin resistance. Best option – 2MAD for me and no breakfast in the morning + walking 10000-20000 steps a day.

    The best way to find that balance between saving and living is by investing, This way you get
    to have your saving intact and then live comfortably off the revenue coming in from
    your investments. Financial freedom is possible, you just need to know
    what to do and when to begin. I am a living testimony.

  27. J B on November 6, 2022 at 9:31 am

    Every and I mean every world leading experts on longevity agree that only eating one meal a day is the best, not to mention that the overwhelming research and studies which have been done with POW’s and starvation survivors who often live to very old ages, yeah I’ve done the 5 meals a day during younger bodybuilding days and never felt more unhealthy so I’m going the opposite way 👍

    Wow we are taking advice from doctors? Doctors are not nutritionist doctors are not allowed to learn nutrition their main purpose is to administer drugs they are taught how to administer drugs what type of drugs but diet no people they are telling you to eat cereals when we are meant to be eating high-protein diets. Our insulin levels will spike as soon as you have high carb diets. I know this from my own practice and from my research through dieticians and scientists not doctors.

  30. CaptBeardie on November 6, 2022 at 9:35 am

    So the "DASH" diet is "eat mo better". No more details needed, thx!

  31. Frank Kolmann on November 6, 2022 at 9:35 am

    This is the best illustration I have seen for how artery’s get blocked. Those that say cholesterol somehow sticks to artery walls are total lies that started when the margarine promoters spread misinformation.
