Once you get through with dash diet phase 1, the Dash diet phase 2 requires you to include all the fruits, whole grains, lean proteins, dairy, and nonstarchy vegetables in your diet.

The whole focus here is to fasten up your weight loss process after your body has adapted to this diet while going by the Dash diet phase 1.

The DASH diet was initially designed by the National Heart, Blood, and lung institute of America to help people diagnosed with hypertension issues.

Eventually, the diet turned out to be immensely popular among people around due to its fantastic health benefits. So, while you can stabilize your blood pressure with this dash diet, you can also help your body to lose some quick weight alongside.
