Arrow Dash Diet voted #1

Obesity is an epidemic in the U.S. This condition is putting people at a higher risk for serious diseases, such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease, stroke and cancer, etc. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), it is estimated that more than one-third of American adults (35.7 percent) and 17 percent (12.5 million) of American children and teens are clinically obese (CDC). Obesity is defined as having a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or more.
It accounts for 10% of all health care cost in the US, over $147 billion on the average.
The Dash diet was voted #1 for overall health 3 years in a row by annual survey of physicians and nutritionists [First Magazine]. Also US NEWS & WORLD REPORT

I am one of the Obese and struggle with weight loss and several health issues. I have done every diet you can name and I have lost and gain back more each time. Like so many others have looked for the magic bullet and ignored the real truth. I need to learn how to eat healthy and make a real life style change. It is so easy to put off things we find challenging and except the easy fix. But, sooner or later we must except the truth. I am OBESE and I need help. I need to understand why I am this way and how to fix it. So here I am again starting what I believe is an excellent diet. I did not say an easy diet plan, but one I feel I can handle. I am inviting anyone who wants to take this journey and hope we can keep each other strong and finally be one of the success stories. I can use your help and some Buddies, I will get all the foods required on phase 1 and get started. I will let you know how it goes. But please think about what Obesity is costing you and do something to get healthy. I am going to give it my best.

You might get responses if you moved this to the General Diet section. This is for low carb diets and the Dash Diet is not low carb.
