If you are looking to lose a few pounds but are struggling to find the right diet for you, it may be time to try the DASH diet.
The DASH diet stands for ‘Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension’ that offers a smarter, more scientific way of losing weight. Low-fat foods, whole grains, nuts, seeds, and seafood make up the bulk of this diet. There is also protein, in the form of lean pork and chicken, as well as fruits and vegetables.
Lowering the Risk of Heart Disease
The DASH diet is high in calcium, potassium, and magnesium which all help combat sodium in diets that can lead to high blood pressure. If you have been diagnosed with hypertension or you are at risk of high blood pressure this is a great diet for you. It is a diet that is easy to follow once you get used to preparing home-cooked meals rather than high-salt pre-prepared meals.
Plenty of Fruit and Vegetables
Like most healthy diets, the DASH diet recommended eating at least 5 pieces of fruit and vegetables each day. You do need to watch how much sugar you consume per week but when you eat sugar in the fruit you will generally be able to eat a larger portion of fruit than you would candy, for example. The maximum amount of sugar allowed on the DASH diet is 18 grams through the week.
Naturewell Juice Bar offers a range of low-sugar smoothies and cold-press juices that can help you monitor how much sugar you are consuming and help you stick to your DASH diet.
