Exactly! And your brain will make you miserable on these high protein diets, long term, never mind the terrible breath. Do the DASH diet and love your good healthy carbs and unprocessed food and feel so much better!
It is a lifestyle that can be followed for a lifetime because it feels so amazing to the body!
I took phentermine alone for the first three months of my weight loss process with DASH. I lost 24 pounds in that first three months. My doctor, when he prescribed it for me, said I would not get another prescription for the drug, unless I lost at least 12 pounds in that 3 months. I easily doubled his request. However at the three month mark, I decide DASH and exercise were going to be how I needed to live my life from that point forward, so I decided not to ask for renewal of the prescription, in favour of trying to do it with DASH and exercise alone. And it worked…so well!!
The drug did help me to control my appetite and adjust to the lower calorie intake I embarked on with DASH when I began to try to lose weight, rather than just maintain, with the diet. Being 5 ft 4 inches tall, I used Marla Heller’s advise (DASH diet guru) and chose a daily calorie limit of between 1300-1500 during my 18 month weight loss process with DASH.

They look yummy!
I also use avoidance. Sometimes I will just choose to have a drink rather than eating when I go out to to a restaurant with friends. It is still a lot of fun!!
A high fibre diet is super important for gut health!! I eat 30+ grams of fibre each and every day!
A good list of diet myths and tricks that don’t work. I do eat quinoa and enjoy it, but I don’t consider it a superfood like my daily servings of berries!

Given the disease runs in my family, I am hopeful the DASH diet I follow will be helpful for combatting it long term as I grow older! I also currently eat a hybrid of the mediterreanean and dash diets, defaulting to meditereranean diet choices (e.g olive oil, fish, etc) within a low sodium DASH framework.
That’s a lot of fibre Beans are so good for you! I always choose low sodium.
