In this video, Dr. Dean explains the D.A.S.H. Diet which is sponsored by the National Institutes of Health. The diet uses specific nutrient-dense foods to reduce intake of harmful sodium while increasing intake of helpful calcium and potassium. In this way, you can lower blood pressure in 2 weeks. If the diet is followed in the long term, it can prevent osteoporosis, cancer, heart disease, stroke, diabetes.
In this video, Dr. Dean answers a commonly asked question: "What is a healthy weight for me?"

Dr. Dean gives an example of how only using a Body Mass Index (BMI) calculation can be deceiving. Your distribution of muscle and fat matters. The best way to get a complete understanding of your healthy weight is to include a body fat assessment by a doctor.
