Brief Answer:
The best diet is the balanced diet

Detailed Answer:
Hi! Welcome to health care magic! As far as your query regarding the best diet is concerned, I would like to rephrase it in one word as the best diet is the balanced diet. By that I mean, a diet which can contain all nutrients in adequate amount to meet the daily requirements of calories, carbohydrates, proteins, essential fatty acids, fibres, minerals and micronutrients like vitamins and electrolytes in a balanced amount. Requirements may varry between different individuals depending upon any pre morbid or diseases. Like in light of your history of hypertension, and high blood pressures a diet with low salt intake, lower cholesterol levels and fats and rich in fibre is better choice. Also that the requirement may varry depending upon age and weight and BMI of the individual and it may be carried accordingly to achieve ideal BMIs and targets. Hope this has answered your query, if you have any more questions, feel free to ask. Regards.
