James, Delores C. S.
Health Educator, v30 n1 p29-37 Fall 1998
Investigated African Americans' dietary patterns in light of national nutrition recommendations. Questionnaires and focus groups indicated that most respondents rated their diets good or excellent, but most had unhealthy eating habits. Most had recently tried to lower fat intake. Milk, whole grains, vegetables, and water were the most difficult items to increase. Meat and fried foods were the most difficult to reduce. (SM)
