The DASH Diet for Hypertension

by Thomas Moore Mark Jenkins

IN A 2011 RANKING PUBLISHED IN U.S. NEWS & WORLD REPORT, THE DASH DIET WAS RATED #1 BY A PANEL OF MEDICAL EXPERTS INCLUDING SPECIALISTS IN DIABETES AND HEART DISEASE-- THE BEST OVERALL DIET AND THE BEST DIET FOR DIABETES! More than 50 million Americans suffer from high blood pressure, and most of them control it by taking prescription drugs with potentially dangerous side effects; and nearly 24 million Americans have diabetes. But there is a natural and affordable alternative for managing these potentially deadly conditions, reducing your risk of heart failure, stroke, and kidney disease, and achieving the best health of your life: the DASH (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) diet. Developed by a world-class team of doctors and nutritionists, the DASH diet gives you: * Complete and balanced nutrition for safe short-term and long-term weight loss * A scientifically proven approach to managing diabetes and heart disease without prescription medication * A hearty and healthful selection of DASH menus, recipes, and grocery lists * DASH exercise programs for everyday living * Key tools including calorie worksheets and a formula to calculate body mass . . . and much more from this revolutionary program, which is recommended by the American Heart Association; the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute; the American Society for Hypertension; and other leading medical authorities.

The DASH Diet for Weight Loss

by Mark Jenkins Thomas J. Moore Megan C Murphy

UNLIKE MOST DIETS, the DASH Diet is based on favorite foods you can find at the grocery store around the corner. It's easy to follow, it won't leave you hungry, and it's built for long-lasting results. It's also America's healthiest diet. And people on the DASH Diet feel better and think more clearly. That's because, also unlike most diets, the DASH Diet was originally developed by a team of medical researchers who were funded by the NIH and led by Dr. Thomas Moore. The team's goal was to create a diet to lower blood pressure (DASH stands for Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension), and they came up with an easy eating plan that has since been proven to lower high blood pressure and reduce the development of hypertension, lower cholesterol, and reduce the risk of heart attacks, strokes, heart failure, and kidney stones, as well as reduce the risk of developing colon cancer. And the researchers noticed something else along with these incredible medical benefits: while eating a varied, hearty diet of nutritious foods, people on the DASH Diet also were able to lose weight and maintain that healthy weight loss over time. Named the Best Overall Diet by U.S. News & World Report two years in a row and recommended by the US Department of Agriculture as an ideal eating pattern for all Americans, the DASH Diet is easy to follow and allows you to choose the foods you like. Now, based on new data from Dr. Moore's continuing research, The DASH Diet for Weight Loss adapts the DASH Diet for anyone who wants to reach his or her healthiest weight. You'll learn how to calculate calorie targets and learn what counts as a serving; how to add exercise to the diet; how to keep a food log, plan a menu, and adapt favorite recipes for the DASH Diet. And you'll learn how to keep off the weight you lost. With versions for meat-eaters and vegetarians, the DASH Diet is a plan you can stick to because it offers a wide selection of your favorite foods, not special supplements or meals that you have to buy from a specific manufacturer. You'll read inspiring before-and-after stories by others who have experienced success with DASH. And you'll find extensive meal plans at the calorie level that is just right for you, concentrating on how to lose weight without sacrificing great-tasting foods. You can reach your goal to lose weight and keep it off by following America's healthiest diet. The DASH Diet for Weight Loss will show you how. *** * NAMED THE BEST OVERALL DIET BY U.S. NEWS & WORLD REPORT TWO YEARS IN A ROW * RECOMMENDED BY THE US DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE AS AN IDEAL EATING PATTERN FOR ALL AMERICANS * ENDORSED BY THE NATIONAL HEART, LUNG, AND BLOOD INSTITUTE AND THE AMERICAN HEART ASSOCIATION (AHA) * MEAL PLANS PROVIDED AT MULTIPLE CALORIE LEVELS (SO THERE'S ONE THAT'S RIGHT FOR ALL READERS) AND FOR MEAT-EATERS AND VEGETARIANS ALIKE *** START THE DASH DIET THE EASY WAY WITH ONE OF OUR SIMPLE, SUBSTANTIAL MEAL PLANS: 1,600 CALORIES: DAY 5 Target: 6 grain, 4 fruit, 4 vegetable, 2 dairy, 1½ meat, ¼ nuts/seeds/legumes, 1 added fat, ½ sweets BREAKFAST (340 CALORIES) 1 Low-Fat Blueberry Muffin (see recipe), 2 grain (200 calories) ½ cup raspberries, 1 fruit (30 calories) 1 cup low-fat milk, 1 dairy (110 calories) MORNING SNACK (160 CALORIES)1 cup sliced mango, 2 fruit (110 calories) ¾ ounce (1 small slice) low-fat cheddar cheese, ½ dairy (50 calories) LUNCH (325 CALORIES) 1 Cobb Salad (see recipe), 4 vegetable, ½ dairy, ½ meat, 1 added fat (225 calories) 1 small chocolate chip granola bar, 1 grain (100 calories) AFTERNOON SNACK (160 CALORIES) "Ants on a log": 4 celery sticks (5 inches each), 1 vegetable (5 calories) 1 tablespoon peanut butter, ½ nuts/seeds/legumes (100 calories) 2 tablespoons raisins, ½ fruit (55 calories) DINNER (445 CALORIES) Shrimp Scampi, 3 ounces shrimp with sauce (see recipe), 1 meat (145 calories) 1½ cups whole-wheat linguine, 3 grain (300 calories) EVENING SNACK/DESSERT (105 CALORIES) 1 medium apple, 1 fruit (50 calories) 2 tablespoons low-fat caramel sauce, ½ sweets (55 calories) Nutrition analysis for the day: 1,535 calo...

Performance at the Limit

by Mark Jenkins Mark Jenkins Ken Pasternak Richard West Ken Pasternak

Can you imagine your organisation as a Ferrari or a McLaren, a Toyota or a Force India? Your management team as a pit crew? Your sales force as the race team and your marketing and research department as the design studio creating a Formula 1 car? Formula 1 has an estimated turnover of $4bn, employs 50,000 people in more than 30 countries and has a foothold in every major and developing economy. With performance as the central focus of every organization, Performance at the Limit uses the case of Formula 1 motorsport as an example of how business can achieve optimal performance in highly competitive environments where dealing with change effectively is paramount. This second edition builds on the success of the first and contains a wealth of new material, including many more interviews with Formula 1 drivers and other key executives active in the sport.

Wild with Child

by Mark Jenkins Jennifer Bove

Wild with Child is a unique collection of true stories by parents who boldly head out into the wilderness with kids in tow (or in the lead, as the case may be). These stories run the gamut of adventure: winter camping, climbing, spelunking, field research, skiing, llama trekking, fishing, hunting, and searching for pirate treasure with children of all ages. Readers should bundle up before they strike out into the Rocky Mountains with Mark Jenkins, whose idea of quality time with the kids is camping in a snow cave. Leslie Leyland-Fields shares deep gratitude as her brood safely migrates to an Alaskan island by bush plane. Maleesha Speer confides her personal evolution as she awakens to the wonder of her unborn child in bear country. Whether just beginning the course of wild parenting or looking back at the trail they've taken, these writers aren't willing to accept Disneyland as the final frontier. Even the most civilized among them insist that their children grow up feeling grass between their toes and sun on their skin. It's a healthy heritage, giving kids a steady set of bearings, making them strong, and helping them rise to challenges.
