Re: need a diet for my brother, he had a stroke

That is so bad. Sorry to hear about your brother's stroke. You can ask the doctor to recommend a dietician or ask what diet the hospital has. Some hospitals have specialized diet plans for their patients and most of the time it's free. If you call the American Heart Association, they will be more than happy to send you out free information. It's really good too. They sent me a bunch of stuff on diet and exercise in a big brown envelope. You can look up their website for the toll free phone number. It may even be in your phone book, if you have a local chapter.
