As if you didn’t have enough diet data already, here’s some more that you might actually want to know.
A recently released report from US World News and Rankings listed the top 35 diets, and the number one diet – the DASH Diet – may surprise you.
Most people say they’ve never heard of it – and when I say “most” people, I’m including myself.
I had a slightly vague recollection of having heard the term, but that was about it.
So I checked out the website – it says this:
The healthy DASH diet plan was developed to lower blood pressure without medication in research sponsored by the US National Institutes of Health. The first DASH diet research showed that it could lower blood pressure as well as the first line blood pressure medications, even with a sodium intake of 3300 mg/day! Since then, numerous studies have shown that the DASH diet reduces the risk of many diseases, including some kinds of cancer, stroke, heart disease, heart failure, kidney stones, and diabetes. It has been proven to be an effective way to lose weight and become healthier at the same time. It is full of fabulous, delicious, real foods. All of these benefits led to the #1 diet ranking by US News & World Report in 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014. (Read more)
