22 Photo Slideshow: The Medscape Physician Lifestyle Report 2014 reveals both good and bad eating habits among physicians including their favorite diets


Which Diets Do Physicians Choose?
The latest guidelines from the American Heart Association/American College of Cardiology on cardiovascular risk recommend a Mediterranean-type diet (rich in fruit, vegetables, whole grains, fish, olive oil, lean poultry, nuts, legumes).[4,5] This approach is also supported by a recent major review.[6] A 2013 Gallup poll on healthy diets found that 60% of Americans eat 5 servings of fruits and vegetables 4 or more days per week,[7] the same percentage reported by physicians in a 2012 Gallup poll.[8] When Medscape survey respondents were asked which diets they routinely chose, 62% of normal- to underweight physicians (but only 39% of those who are overweight or obese) indicated diets that recommend this healthy daily amount of fruits and vegetables. Even worse, among the heavier group, 44% reported that they routinely choose either "meals on-the go" or a typical American diet (meat most days; carbs most days from white rice, potatoes, or white flour products; high fat) compared with only 28% of healthier-weight physicians. Surprisingly, only 16% in the obese and overweight groups were on weight-loss or calorie-restriction diets.
