Twenty years ago, when we knew less about the causes of heart attack, the term ‘prudent diet’ was coined. It is a good name: the evidence that dietary change helps prevent coronary disease is not yet conclusive, but it is, none the less, impressive. If the proposals are likely to do good, if they do no harm, if eating can remain a pleasure, many of us will think it prudent to follow them. Diet is one of the causes of coronary disease. Here we deal with the principles of the prudent diet. There are in fact two kinds of diet:
1. If you are overweight, or have a tendency to gain or regain weight, you need to reduce your energy intake (Calories) until your weight reaches a healthier level. This low-Calorie diet has to be balanced, offering variety and containing adequate protein, minerals, vitamins and fibre; it is the amount of inessential foodstuffs (sugar, starch, fat, alcohol) which must be restricted. There is no reason to fear that this pattern of eating, aimed at achieving and maintaining an optimal weight, could do any harm; there is much indirect evidence of its benefits.
2. For those who are lean (or have shed surplus weight) the prudent diet means controlling the amount and the kind of fat you eat, and the amount of cholesterol. At the same time it means guaranteeing sufficient protein, carbohydrate and roughage (fibre-containing foods) in the diet.
