    Dr. Ornish provides those who attend his retreats with a wallet card to show to waiters and chefs. Most actually will not bother to read it and a few cannot. It is better to know what it says and to tell your waiter directly.

Dear chef,

This person is following a special low-fat vegetarian diet. May I have your help in preparing a meal? I have listed the basic cooking guidelines on the reverse side of this card. The diet is based on whole grains, fresh vegetables and fruits, soy products, beans and peas and nonfat (not low fat) dairy products. Thank you very much.

Dean Ornish, M.D.
