  • My dad was on it after he had heart surgery. My sister and I did it for a while, too. Unfortunately, I don't remember very much about it.

  • Yes, it's recommended for anyone with heart disease. It's all about fresh produce. The link that liss05 provided will take you to all the in-depth info. I eat very similarly to this, and I've lost about 65 lbs over the last 16 months. I actually eat clean, which the DASH diet really is all about as well. The DASH diet is a VERY safe way to lose weight that is healthy and fairly easy to stick with. I would highly recommend it!
