DASH Diet Better For Teens In Delta

   Posted by: Phil   in Child Health

DASH Diet Better For Teens In Delta Attention Delta teens: The Dietary Approach to Stop Hypertension (DASH) helps prevent adolescent obesity, according to a recent study.1

The study was published in the Archives of Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine. The DASH diet includes low-fat dairy, chicken, lean, beef, chicken, nuts, fruits, whole grains, vegetables, and legumes.

Surprisingly, study participants who followed DASH actually ate, on average, 250 more calories than those who ate a typical Delta teen diet: high-fat meats, cheeses, highly processed foods, and fast food meals.

Delta parents who emphasize a ‘calorie deficit’ plan for teen weight loss may want to consider focusing more on the quality of the foods eaten.
