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.

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...

A Dash of Style: The Art and Mastery of Punctuation

by Noah Lukeman

"Takes the straitjacket off punctuation....Lukeman's wit and insight make this an instant classic."--M. J. Rose The first practical and accessible guide to the art of punctuation for creative writers. Punctuation reveals the writer: haphazard commas, for example, reveal haphazard thinking; clear, lucid breaks reveal clear, lucid thinking. Punctuation can be used to teach the writer how to think and how to write. This short, practical book shows authors the benefits that can be reaped from mastering punctuation: the art of style, sentence length, meaning, and economy of words. There are full-length chapters devoted to the period, the comma, the semicolon, the colon, quotation marks, the dash and parentheses, the paragraph and section break, and a cumulative chapter on integrating them all into "The Symphony of Punctuation." Filled with exercises and examples from literary masters (Why did Poe and Melville rely on the semicolon? Why did Hemingway embrace the period?), A Dash of Style is interactive, highly engaging, and a necessity for creative writers as well as for anyone looking to make punctuation their friend instead of their mysterious foe.

Dashiell Hammett

by Sally Cline

Dashiell Hammett changed the face of crime fiction. In five novels published over five years as well as a string of stories, he transformed the mystery genre into literature and left us with the figure of the hard-boiled detective, from the Continental Op to Sam Spade--immortalized on film by Humphrey Bogart in The Maltese Falcon--and the more glamorous Thin Man, also made iconic with the aid of Hollywood. A brilliant writer, Hammett was a complex and enigmatic man. After 1934 until his death in 1961, he published no more novels and suffered from a writer's block that both shamed and maimed him. He is identified with his tough protagonists, but his tuberculosis compromised his masculine identity and alcoholism may have been his answer. A former Pinkerton detective who valued honesty, he was attracted to women who lied outrageously, most notably Lillian Hellman, with whom he conducted a thirty-year affair. A controversial political activist who stood up for civil liberty, he was also a very private man. In this compact new biography, Sally Cline uses fresh research, including interviews with Hammett's family and Hellman's heir, to reexamine the life and works of the writer whom Raymond Chandler called "the ace performer."

Dashiell Hammett: 5 Complete Novels

by Dashiell Hammett

The 5 novels are Red Harvest, The Dain Curse, The Maltese Falcon, The Glass Key, and The Thin Man.

The Dastard (Xanth #24)

by Piers Anthony

Frustrated farm boy Anomy gives up his soul in return for the ability to unhappen events. Since he uses this power mostly for ill, he adopts the sobriquet the Dastard and becomes a problem. The good guys send a half-dragon, half-human girl, a roc, and the princesses Melody, Harmony, and Rhythm on his trail. Complicating the action in this customarily busy Xanth yarn are the Sea Hag, an insatiably vengeful spirit who possesses the bodies of young women, wears them out, and throws them away; time travel; some intriguing limits to and complexities of magic; the usual word- and concept play; and some serious ethical thinking when the Dastard regains a soul (a borrowed one, not the original). Readers may become impatient with the Adult Conspiracy and the power of panties, devices used on all intergender encounters, at the cost of a good deal of their potential, at least for readers who are already conspiring adults.
