In brief: Unlikely to be bad

Research suggests that vegetarian diets are generally healthier than meat-based diets, but there is no single diet that is appropriate for everyone.
Many people thrive on a vegetarian diet but some people do feel better when they eat at least some meat. The best way to see how it affects you is to try it. Some nutritionists feel type o's do better with a meat-based diet but this remains unproven.
