A clinical trial of the effects of dietary patterns on blood pressure. DASH Collaborative Research Group.
TLDR
A diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and low-fat dairy foods and with reduced saturated and total fat can substantially lower blood pressure. Expand
Effects on blood pressure of reduced dietary sodium and the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) diet
TLDR
The effect of different levels of dietary sodium, in conjunction with the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) diet, which is rich in vegetables, fruits, and low-fat dairy products, in persons with and in those without hypertension is studied. Expand
Effects of comprehensive lifestyle modification on blood pressure control: main results of the PREMIER clinical trial.
TLDR
Both behavioral interventions significantly reduced weight, improved fitness, and lowered sodium intake and the established plus DASH intervention also increased fruit, vegetable, and dairy intake. Expand
Effects of the DASH diet alone and in combination with exercise and weight loss on blood pressure and cardiovascular biomarkers in men and women with high blood pressure: the ENCORE study.
TLDR
For overweight or obese persons with above-normal BP, the addition of exercise and weight loss to the DASH diet resulted in even larger BP reductions, greater improvements in vascular and autonomic function, and reduced left ventricular mass. Expand
Effects on blood lipids of a blood pressure-lowering diet: the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) Trial.
TLDR
The DASH diet is likely to reduce coronary heart disease risk and changes in lipids did not differ significantly by race or baseline lipid concentrations, except for HDL, which decreased more in participants with higher baseline HDL-cholesterol concentrations than in those with lower baseline LDL-ch cholesterol concentrations. Expand
Weight loss during the intensive intervention phase of the weight-loss maintenance trial.
TLDR
The WLM behavioral intervention successfully achieved clinically significant short-term weight loss in a diverse population of high-risk patients, although the association between behavioral measures and weight loss differed by race and gender groups. Expand
Reduction in consumption of sugar-sweetened beverages is associated with weight loss: the PREMIER trial.
TLDR
Recommendations to limit liquid calorie intake among adults and to reduce SSB consumption as a means to accomplish weight loss or avoid excess weight gain are supported. Expand
Effects of PREMIER Lifestyle Modifications on Participants With and Without the Metabolic Syndrome
TLDR
The data suggest that strategies for lowering BP in individuals with metabolic syndrome may be enhanced by recommendations to adopt the DASH dietary pattern, and diastolic blood pressure, lipids, and homeostasis model assessment responded similarly to both interventions regardless of metabolic syndrome status. Expand
Effects of Comprehensive Lifestyle Modification on Diet, Weight, Physical Fitness, and Blood Pressure Control: 18-Month Results of a Randomized Trial
TLDR
At 18 months, participants in both behavioral intervention groups had less hypertension, more weight loss, and better reduction in sodium and fat intake than those receiving advice only, and the DASH diet group also increased their intake of fruits, vegetables, and fiber. Expand
Reductions in dietary energy density are associated with weight loss in overweight and obese participants in the PREMIER trial.
TLDR
Both large and modest ED reductions were associated with weight loss and improved diet quality and the established and established+DASH groups had the greatest EI and BW reductions. Expand
