Whilst the vegetable content of her new diet was excellent, the avoidance of a high fat, fish and meat diet clearly did not suit her. Her blood group was O which is another reason why the swing to almost total vegetarianism was unsuitable.
When I explained the connection with her diet and ethnic origin she said it made sense and was keen to give my suggestions a try. After one month I was delighted to receive a phone call from this lady who was eager to tell me how much better she felt and also how her weight had returned to normal without any effort.
I wish all my patients were quite so simple !
