There is a problem with negatives in situations like this.
Did the doctor say "You should eat green beans, broccoli, kale, beets, squash, and mangoes" and simply not include tomatoes?
What about tomatoes?
The doctor didn't recommend that he eat tomatoes. I guess they don't have the same good properties of the other things on the list.
Or, did the doctor say "I recommend you stay away from tomatoes. Their acidity will cause you problems."
The doctor recommended he not eat tomatoes.
