Default Weight Watchers and Dash Diet

Hi, Everyone. I have had the most success following Weight Watchers in the past. So, it seemed only natural for me to go back to those basics when I resolved to get fit for life (just started Monday). This time, I'm combining it with the Dash Diet. They work well together and FitDay's ability to monitor sodium, carbs, potassium, etc., make it easy to keep track on a daily basis. The Dash Diet works to lower blood pressure along with some really good other benefits.

It calls for a lot of grains, fruits and veggies. Some may say it's expensive to buy good food, but I think it's simply a trade off--healthy food for more money, or less healthy food that accumulates in fat and medical problems (diabetes, heart disease, etc.). I'm carrying the proof of that on my hips, thighs and stomach right now! And, I'm very motivated to get rid of it!

If you're interested, you can search for 'dash diet' and find many links. This one is for a really helpful booklet
