I've been advocating healthy eating for over 15 years and the DASH (dietary approaches to stop hypertension) eating plan still remains to be the only one that I've ever endorsed. This plan was originally developed to protect against high blood pressure but has been shown to also prevent obesity, high cholesterol, heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, and some forms of cancer.

Before starting an exercise training program you should first make sure that exercise is safe for you. If you are under the age of 55 years and generally in good health, it is probably safe for you to exercise. However, if you are over 55 years of age and/or have any health problems, be sure to consult with your physician before starting an exercise training program.
