Nonfood Factors

The program includes moderate exercise, stress reduction, smoking cessation, and group support in addition to the low-fat, vegetarian diet.

Is This Diet Vegetarian-Friendly?

Yes. Both the Prevention and the Reversal diets are vegetarian.

Eating Out

Focus on what you can eat: as many fruits, vegetables, grains, and legumes as you want. Since low-fat foods are the goal, make sure to request your food be prepared without added fat, and choose grilled and baked foods instead of those that are fried or sautéed.
