Why do you ask?: It's your physician's task to explain why you've been recommended to have a low-iron diet. If this is for the management of hemochromatosis (the easiest of all the very-serious diseases to manage), then ask a couple of experts whether this is really key to its management given the awesome effectiveness of therapeutic phlebotomy, or whether you can eat what you enjoy.
