Clinical nutritionist Margaret Ellis specialises in live blood analysis and provides us this week with information about blood type O.

Type O is the most common blood group. This blood type’s ancestors were the hunter-gatherers. On a high-protein, meat-based diet you can have a slim body in time for the new year.

A few simple guidelines:

Stay away from wheat.

If you’re of African descent limit your intake of dairy and eggs. The only meat you aren’t allowed is pork.   Get YOU Best Diets (on shelves now) for a thorough list of what each blood group can and can’t eat, and for delicious recipes for each type.
