Dietitian's Perspective: Dash Diet vs. Mediterranean Diet

In this article I discuss and compare the Mediterranean and DASH diets. Both diets align with guidelines put out by the American Heart Association and are both evidence based and effective in improving health. According to the AHA: DASH, or Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension, is another eating plan that aligns with AHA recommendations and has been proven to improve health. The DASH diet allows more dairy products and meat, while the Mediterranean diet includes regular use of olive oil.
