The DASH diet has been around for awhile, a refresher course is always good.

See a real dietitian and get help from someone that sees you in person and knows your medical history, if you have problems with this. Some people need more protein than what this offers. It’s a good rule of thumb plan though. You will at least lose the water weight.

I made a copy of this and stuck it on the fridge so that I can reference it while planning my meals. Very good article!

I like this but too many carbs for someone else who had gastric bypass. Any suggestions to modify?

It did not work for me I found out yesterday at my heart health tests I had done. My bad fat is O.K. My good fats level is too low from all the no fat/low fat products,advised to add more cheese, walnuts, salmon and olive,canola oil,which I use and I use the no trans fat margarine, made with a combination of olive/canola oil. It is the only healthy type on the market. I have to add lots of salt and salty foods to raise my blood pressure too 120/80 A.S.A.P. the normal range. Mine is 80/60 and up to 100/65 with salt. I now have to add more salt,more fat and less gym exercise because of a problem with my arteries in my legs causing blood clots in my lungs. When I exercise the bottom number on the blood pressure goes up,the top number does not. This means my heart is trying to pump harder and not getting anywhere. If I continue i will get a heart attack or stroke at the gym as my blood pressure is to low when I am at home doing nothing and started new exercise program 3 months a go and now more weaker,tired every day. So today I change my diet to 50% carbohydrates,32% fat,of course the healthy fats,18% protein.I will add lots of salt and my blood pressure is checked 3 times a week at the gym. Now I will watch my blood pressure and change my diet and exercise immediately. It does not work for everyone, for me it was too much of a good thing.

I am extremely lactose intolerant. What can I use in place of the dairy servings? I've discovered the coconut milk yogurts, but it's not technically a dairy. I also drink almond milk. Do these satisfy my calcium intake?
