DASH stands for Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension. The main goal of the diet is to prevent and lower blood pressure, although there are some other beneficial "side-effects" such as weight loss.
The DASH diet is rich in fruits, vegetables, fat-free or low-fat milk and milk products, whole grains, fish, poultry, beans, seeds, and nuts. It also contains less salt and sodium; sweets, added sugars, and sugar-containing beverages; fats; and red meats than the typical American diet. This heart healthy way of eating is also lower in saturated fat, trans fat, and cholesterol and rich in nutrients that are associated with lowering blood pressure—mainly potassium, magnesium, and calcium, protein, and fiber.
The DASH eating plan doesn't require any special foods or supplements like a lot of homeopathic diets. It simply calls for a certain number of daily servings from various food groups. The number of servings depends on the number of calories you’re allowed each day. Your calorie level depends on your age and, especially, how active you are. You will also limit your sodium levels to either 2300mg or 1500mg each day. The less salt you eat, the more you may be able to lower your blood pressure.

Nice basic summary
This is a good basic summary of the DASH diet. It needs to give info on what constitutes a serving size (grams or by cup etc.). Would be nice if it accommodated for landscape viewing.
I expected much more. This is simply a small collection of information that could have been quickly found on the Internet. I wonder if the real point of this app is to garner fees from the ads that display at the bottom! I deleted the app within 30 minutes of downloading it.
It is a good review of the DASH Diet. I would have liked recipes and shopping list. Although it does list foods so one could say that is a shopping list. I would suggest to go to your library and get the Dash Diet book. Also get the Weight Loss Solution rather than Action Plan.
