Definitely ditch your current cardiologist. If he/she is ambivalent about nutrition, then he/she is not really serious about making the patient well.
Another possibility is to find a local Registered Dietitian. They can work with you and your (new) cardiologist to continue your low-fat plant-based diet. You can find a local Registered Dietitian at this website: http://www.eatright.org
. Just click on the red "Find An Expert" button in the upper right hand part of the webpage. You can select a Dietitian that specializes in vegetarian nutrition and heart health.
“Specific recommendations for a healthy diet include: eating more fruit, vegetables, legumes, nuts and grains; cutting down on salt, sugar and fats. It is also advisable to choose unsaturated fats, instead of saturated fats and towards the elimination of trans-fatty acids."
