The healthy DASH diet plan was developed to lower blood pressure without medication in research sponsored by the US National Institutes of Health. The first DASH diet research showed that it could lower blood pressure as well as the first line blood pressure medications, even with a sodium intake of 3300 mg/day! Since then, numerous studies have shown that the DASH diet reduces the risk of many diseases, including some kinds of cancer, stroke, heart disease, heart failure, kidney stones, and diabetes. It has been proven to be an effective way to lose weight and become healthier at the same time. It is full of fabulous, delicious, real foods. All of these benefits led to the #1 diet ranking by US News & World Report in 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014.

Can’t track dietary intake
It seems that none of the apps listed for DASH diet have a decent tracker to keep tallies in what you’re intake is. While this app had some decent looking recipes, none of them had what the servings of fruit/veggies/grains, etc would be. Plus after seeing each thing an ad pops up; as in I looked at 3 recipes and an ad popped up after I closed every time. And even when just trying to explore the app, after closing each section an ad popped up. Since I can’t track my food intake, I have already deleted it. Might be good for someone looking to get started with DASH but not for someone who wants to track their DASH intake.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
