Linked below are three tables that provide a simplistic overview of the basic requirements of each therapeutic diet and are intended to illustrate the similarities and differences between them. They offer a bird's eye view of restricted and included foods. They are not an all-inclusive list of the included and restricted foods, nor do they define all the rules of each diet. Thus, they should NOT be used as a guide to following any of the diets. When a diet is chosen, you should work with a dietitian to implement the diet and properly progress through the phases/stages, referring to the documentation provided by the diet creators.
