How to Eat Right According to Your Blood Typea

Given the variety of weight-loss plans available, it's likely that you have tried one or more of them at some point. The question is, will following a blood type-based diet help you lose weight and improve your health?

Dr. Peter D'Adamo thinks it could! Naturopathic physician Dr. D'Adamo believes that a person's blood type may predict which diseases and illnesses they may experience.

It's a fascinating theory, but no studies have been done, and none of them demonstrate that blood type can predict the onset of specific diseases.

That being said, if you are intrigued by the idea of eating according to your blood type, here is the basic premise of the diet.

D’Adamo believes that not everyone should follow the same diet, and your blood type and race determine tolerances to what you should and should not eat. He says that the foods you eat react chemically with your blood type.

If you follow a diet designed for your blood type, your body will digest food more efficiently. You will lose weight, as well as have more energy, and help prevent certain diseases.

What You Can Eat

Type O blood: A high-protein diet heavy on lean meat, poultry, fish, and vegetables. Light on grains, beans, and dairy. D’Adamo also recommends various supplements to help with tummy problems and other issues people with type O blood have.

Type A Blood: Those with type A should switch to a plant-based diet. He believes that A’s flourish on a vegetarian diet. For current meat eaters, a plant-based diet would aid in weight loss. Dr. D’Adamo suggests that Type A’s eat their food in as natural a state as possible, foods that are pure, fresh and organic. “I can’t emphasize enough how critical this dietary adjustment can be to the sensitive immune system of Type A,” he urges, “With this diet, you can supercharge your immune system and potentially short circuit the development of life-threatening diseases.”

Type B Blood: “carry the genetic potential for great malleability and the ability to thrive in changeable conditions.” People with Type B blood should avoid foods like corn, wheat, buckwheat, lentils, tomatoes, peanuts, and sesame seeds. Chicken is also problematic. He encourages for this type to eat plenty of green vegetables, eggs, certain meats, and low-fat dairy.

Type AB Blood: The best foods to focus on for people with type AB are tofu, seafood, dairy, and green vegetables. He says that people with this blood type tend to have low stomach acid. So it is best to avoid caffeine, alcohol, and smoked or cured meats.
