Hello. Thanks for writing to HCM.
The type of foods to be avoided are fat rich foods or foods with high content of unsaturated fatty acids. he should avoid fried junk foods and prefer home cooked food with minimal oil. Diet should be such that 30% of intake is composed of carbohydrates, 30-40% of protein, 20 % fats and rest by bulk forming foods like salads, fruits and yoghurt. Egg yolks are to be avoided as is red meat.
Take care
