The DASH diet is an acronym that stands for “Dietary Approach to Stop Hypertension”.
Its main purpose is to encourage people to reduce their sodium intake while increasing nutrient intake such as calcium, potassium,
and magnesium that helps reduce blood pressure.
The DASH diet has two main versions reducing sodium intake: The standard and lower sodium depending on the sodium intake.
Each version has a daily requirement of six to eight servings of grains, four or five servings of vegetables, four or five servings of fruits, two or three servings of dairy, and up to six servings of lean meat, fish or poultry. Seeds, legumes, and nuts should only be eaten four or five times a week because they are high in calories despite being good sources of protein, potassium, and magnesium.
Even though the DASH diet is not a weight loss program, many people lose weight simply by eating healthier food by less sugar and salt intake.
