The DASH diet – Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension – is often promoted as healthy. But it’s mostly a very conventional low-fat diet, including lots of fruit and vegetables and low-fat (yuk) dairy.
Interestingly a new study tested a higher fat version of the DASH diet – including full fat dairy. More total fat and less carbohydrates. And what happened? It turned out to be an improvement, resulting in better health markers in participants. Surprise, surprise, to all who still fear fat.
