Not sure what you mean about that... DASH stands for Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension

I needed to get a new Doctor one year ago because we moved. She handed me information about the DASH diet which is basically low-salt, chicken, fish, and veggies. Nothing "dash" about it. I have returned to Spark as I have had better luck with it. I'm 65, retired, and need to lose weight to relieve stress on my joints and feel better. Unless I have other health issues I don't feel like I should give up foods I enjoy and cooking (which is my therapy). Spark suits me. I feel like that Doctor just handed me information on DASH because it was easier for her. She poked, prodded, peeked, tossed me a DASH print-out and retired a few months later.
