Fish is packed with protein, vitamins, and nutrients that can lower blood pressure and help reduce the risk of a heart attack or stroke. Many seafood are excellent sources of iodine, which regulates thyroid function. Unstable thyroid function causes metabolic problems and weight gain.

Richly oiled (Omega-3) cold-water fish are excellent for type O’s. Fish is filled with omega-3 fatty acids and vitamins such as D and B2 (riboflavin), rich in calcium and phosphorus, and a great source of minerals, such as iron, zinc, iodine, magnesium, and potassium.
