Supporters of this diet claim it is an effective diet for weight loss and also helps prevent many diseases that are common in the modern era such as heart disease, high blood pressure and obesity. Refined salt, most dairy products, refined sugars and any processed oils would not be acceptable for consumption.

Unlike the Paleo diet this diet does allow for dairy products as well as fruits, grains, poultry, beans and meats. Several studies have shown significant improvements in both systolic and diastolic blood pressure in participants of this diet even if there has not been significant weight loss. The DASH diet provides for a calorie intake that varies between 1600 and 3100 calories per day.

This diet is typically an option in severe cases of obesity and it is not uncommon that people travel from all over the globe to undergo the treatments. The treatment is a combination of ultrasound therapy, skin treatments and nutritional control.
