What's perhaps new is that few studies look at overall eating patterns in relation to weight gain compared to individual foods, and over a long period."

The study is published in the June issue of the Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine.

Data was gathered annually and each participant was given a DASH food group score based on how closely their diet resembled the DASH diet.

The girls logged their food intake once a year in three-day diet records extending for two weekdays and one weekend day. They were trained by a nutritionist to record the information using standard household measuring instruments to estimate portion sizes.

Girls with the highest DASH scores gained the least weight. They also ate more fruits, whole grains and low-fat dair
