Tired Of High Blood Pressure and Weight Gain? The DASH Diet Is Your Answer
High blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, heart attack are plaguing the modern world. In fact, in 2007, the Centers for Disease Control reported that over half a million deaths were caused by high blood pressure as a main contributing factor. If that weren't bad enough, three-quarters of people with high blood pressure don't have the condition under control, which only increases their risk of disease and even death. This is a scary reality that many people have to face. Too many individuals find themselves in the doctor's office being warned about their blood pressure, possible medication, and the risks associated with it.
For many people with high blood pressure, another reality is weight gain. The doctor may say to lose weight and exercise, but no matter how hard you try it never feels like enough. You may barely notice any weight loss or you might not even know where to begin to start losing weight. It is incredibly frustrating and overwhelming, and every morning when you get dressed you are only reminded of the problem.
Life doesn't have to be this way. You can live a healthy and fulfilling life, secure in knowing that your heart health is under control. The DASH diet was created specifically by doctors and researchers to help people just like you, and because of that, you can trust that it is effective and the answer to your problem. Every year people begin the DASH diet to take care of their heart health and manage their weight and are soon blown away by the results. Not only will you be able to protect your heart and eat delicious flavorful meals, under your doctor's direction you may even be able to avoid or be taken off of blood pressure medication
