Recommendations of Professional Groups Poor Diet

Professional groups differ on some of the specifics of diet, but generally recommend that patients limit the intake of high-fat (especially saturated and trans-unsaturated fat) and high-sugar foods and eat a sufficient amount of fruits and vegetables (e.g., five or more servings) and whole grains. There are differences, however, in the specifics. For example, the United States Department of Agriculture's 2000 "Dietary Guidelines for Americans" suggests eating no more than 30% of calories from fat, while the American Heart Association suggests eating between 25% and 35% of calories from fat.94,95 The American Cancer Society guidelines, released in 2002, are less specific but generally recommend the same above changes as other groups.96
