List five suggestions for Mr. Brown’s diet. Make   sure to provide only changes that address the meal planning goals mentioned   above. Tell him which food(s) you would have him omit and how you would   replace these items. You may also change portion sizes. Highlight (yellow   only, please) or bold the item you are changing.
