I am a heart patient (with 2 stents) and taking medicines for heart and blood pressure. At the time of surgery, the dietitian told me not to take juices and dry fruits and only eat one fruit per day . Now its almost 1 year and I want to know what kind of diet should I follow?

Limit the amount of saturated fat you eat. It is not just about the total fat content of the diet, but also the type of fat in the diet. Try to avoid eating foods that are high in saturated fat. Foods that are high in saturated fat include meat pies, sausages, butter, cream, hard cheese, cakes, biscuits and foods that contain coconut or palm oil. Eating foods that are high in unsaturated fat can help to reduce your cholesterol level. Foods high in unsaturated fat include oily fish (such as herring, mackerel, sardine, salmon), avocados, nuts and seeds, sunflower, rapeseed and olive oil.
Reduce you salt intake. Many foods contain hidden salt. Lowering your salt intake can reduce your risk of another MI and also other cardiovascular diseases.
