What Diet Is Recommended For The Prevention Of Heart Disease?

Question: What diet is recommended for the prevention of heart disease?

Answer: The diet that's recommended for preventing coronary artery disease is the same generally healthy diet that's recommended for good health. That includes eating more fruits and vegetables -- you need at least three-and-a-half cups of fruits and vegetables a day -- eating low-fat dairy products -- and that would be about three servings a day -- choosing whole grains as your grain source, and trimming meats, and eating at least two fish meals a week.
