Top-ranked eating plans from NIH – 2
Narrator: This is NIH Health Matters. I’m Joe Balintfy. U.S. News & World Report recently evaluated 25 of the most popular diets identifying the best.
de Jesus: And they ranked very highly the DASH Eating Plan and the TLC which is the Therapeutic Lifestyle Changes.
Narrator: NIH nutritionist Janet de Jesus adds that these “eating plans” were ranked first and second.
de Jesus: I like “eating plan” better than “diet” because really this is a change for life. “Diets” is that cliché that comes up. It’s usually taken negatively. So we want to say positively, healthy eating is good for you.
Narrator: Both the DASH and TLC eating plans are available free from NIH. For details, visit www.nhlbi.nih.gov. Health Matters is produced by the NIH, part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
