Abstract

With rising obesity, despite low-fat diet recommendations, there is an increased interest in weight loss and alternative dietary approaches for cardiovascular health. Physicians must have an understanding of the literature to better counsel their patients about diets and cardiovascular disease. This review examines several dietary approaches to cardiovascular health and evaluates the available scientific evidence regarding these diets.
