A plant based diet: is excellent for reducing cardiovascular risk. The DASH diet was designed primarily for hypertension management. There are secondary cardiovascular benefits from this. Probably the best for cardiovascular risk reduction is the plant based diet recommended by Dr. Esselstyn. The removal of oils is key in that diet. The trick to any of these diets is compliance.

DASH diet: I am not aware of another diet that has been as well tested as the DASH eating plan. I am certain that a plant based diet has not been compared to the DASH in a systematic fashion.
