Nutrition + Weight Management Benefits

DASH for Health

The DASH For Health program is an online program dedicated to helping you eat better, exercise better and lose weight. With customized meal plans to help you get started, twice-weekly email tips, tracking tools for weight, food and exercise, and hundreds of recipes, you will eat better, feel better and improve your health - all while eating the foods you love.

All nutrition advice is based on the DASH Diet—a diet with more scientific proof behind it than any other eating plan. The DASH Diet is a well-balanced, easy-to-understand way of eating that gives you lots of choices, and it is scientifically proven to help you lose weight and lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels. In fact, the DASH diet is so well regarded, it is recommended by the USDA, the American Heart Association and it has been rated the #1 Overall Diet by US News & World Report for seven years in a row!

Tufts Health Plan members can sign up for the DASH for Health program for $34.50 for a 6 month subscription (50% off the regular subscription rate).
