DASH-Guided Diet Helps Adolescent Girls Keep Off The Pounds

June 1, 2011: 11:18 AM EST
A study revealed that adolescent girls whose eating habits were patterned after the Dietary Approach to Stop Hypertension (DASH) dietary guidelines gained less body mass index (BMI) over a 10-year period. Researchers used longitudinal mixed modeling techniques to assess the impact of DASH food groups and a DASH-compliance scale on BMI gains of 2,327 girls. Fruit and low-fat dairy intakes were lead indicators as BMI gain predictors, while whole grain was more weakly correlated with lower BMI gain.
