DASH diet for high blood pressure?
I was at the doctor's for something else, and my blood pressure was a bit high. He told me to cut down on salt, stop taking OTC cold medicines, and come back in a few weeks to get it checked again. It's been high before, and this runs in my family, so I won't be surprised if he wants to start me on medicine at that point--but I'd like to minimize it.
I came across the DASH diet that's supposed to lower you blood pressure. It's lower salt, more potassium, lots of fruits and veggies. Has anyone had much success with it? Have you been able to follow it very well using prepared/convenience foods? I hate to cook!
