DASH Diet Weight Loss & Maintenance

I eat a combination of the low sodium DASH diet (max 1500 mg sodium per day) and mediterranean diet and have been doing so since the spring of 2009.  I started following the diet after my blood pressure hit 170/90 and my Doctor insisted I take action. He gave me 3 options, blood pressure meds, get on the list for weight loss surgery or DASH with large weight loss.  Fortunately the DASH diet worked to help me lose 90 pounds in 18 months and I will have maintained it for 8 years, come summer 2019.
