Blood Type Diet Explained

Eating for Your Blood Type.

Created by Peter J. D’Adamo, the Blood Type Diet aims to help you reduce weight and become healthier as a result. He proposes, that a chemical reaction occurs between the food you consume and the blood type you have. Accordingly, if you follow a diet that is specifically designed according to your blood type, you will efficiently digest the foods recommended. This in turn will result in proper weight loss and an increase in the amount of energy you have. It can also help you in preventing disease and increase your overall well-being.

Blood Types under the Blood Type Diet:

Peter J. D’Adamo states that foods recommendations must be according to the blood types. Accordingly, he devised diets for the different blood groups. That is Blood Type O, Blood Type A, Blood Type B, and Blood Type AB.

Food Recommendations:

For Blood Type O, there is a big emphasis on proteins. He includes fish, poultry, lean meat, and in addition vegetables. To a lesser extent dairy, grains and beans are part of the diet. To solve tummy related problems and other difficulties, he recommends supplements. The Blood Type A, has a vegetarian diet focused on vegetables and fruits. Additionally, whole grains, beans and legumes are important and everything must be fresh and organic. The need for the latter is crucial for the necessity of tackling their ‘sensitive immune system’.

For Blood Type B, a combination of low fat dairy foods, green vegetables, eggs, and only certain meats

are recommended. Foods like buckwheat, corn, lentils, wheat, peanuts, sesame seeds, tomatoes and chicken are to be avoided. The Blood Type AB, has a diet that includes green vegetables, dairy, tofu and seafood. As persons belonging to this group have low stomach acid, he recommends avoiding certain items like cured/smoked meats, alcohol and caffeine.

Additional Requirements of Blood Type Diets:

The items you can add to a shopping list are determined by the foods recommended for your blood type. Consequently, your cooking methods and techniques are also determined by this method. Further, in-person meetings are not required and it is possible to follow this diet ‘on your own’. Packed foods and meals are not required according to Peter J. D’Adamo. Regarding exercise, he again recommends different types based on the blood group you have. For example, biking and jogging for those belonging to Blood Type O, and tai chi and yoga for those belonging to Blood Type A. The diet also allows gluten-free food choices but does recommend the spices and condiments to be used. Those with dietary restrictions due to illnesses like diabetes, high cholesterol, etc. need to be cautious. The criterion the diet states is to know your blood type and follow the diet recommended according to it.
