The secret to a slimmer you? Eating the foods that suit your genetic make up, says the latest diet to cross the pond
You’re long and lean and tend to be healthy in your younger years, but subject to middle-aged spread going either pear-shaped or barrel-chested. You’re charismatic – like politician Hillary Clinton – but find it hard to relax. You may have legs longer than your body, too.The foods to eat
Go for a Mediterranean-style, plant-based diet to help defend against the ageing process and concentrate on fish rather than meat.Take your pick from oily fish, cottage cheese, peanuts, pine nuts, tofu, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, walnut oil, brown rice and chocolate. Season with garlic, cinnamon and oregano. Drink cranberry juice and black tea.What to avoid
Out go red meats and high-fat, white meats (such as pork); trans fats (oils that tend to be hidden in processed foods), high-GI white carbs (such as white bread and pasta), broccoli, cabbage, pears, bananas and oranges.
