The Blood Type Diet
Blood Type Diet
James D'Adamo with the help of his son in later years discovered that not
all diets work for every person, thats why there are so many diets out there.
They also discovered there is a simple solution to the question "why
do people's bodies (and minds believe it or not) react differently to different
types of foods?" The answer is blood type. D'Adamo discovered that
you can actually tell which foods are better for you according to what blood
type you have.
He also learned that in addition to determining an individual's optimal
diet and exercise practices, blood type indicates one's metabolic efficiency,
emotional response to stress, energy level, and susceptibility to various
diseases. If you were to follow this diet correctly you have the ability
to combat serious illness, slow cell deterioration that accompanies aging,
avoid common viruses and infections, and lose weight, as the body automatically
eliminated toxins and fats.
If you have Type O blood, your blood cells react positively to small but
frequent portions of meat (excluding pork), poultry, fish, vegetables,
and fruit. However foods like Grains, wheat, legumes, and dairy products
are incompatible with Typo O blood. Although animal protein is great for
Type O blood, It has the opposite effect on Type A. Type A's are much
better off eating Vegetarian food like beans, legumes, cereal, vegetables,
and fruit. Dairy does not respond well to Type O or Type A blood, however
it does work well with Type B and Type AB blood. Type B's should eat fish
and meats like lamb, mutton, rabbit, and venison. However chicken does
not go with Type B's. Type AB blood works well with a combination of Type
A and Type B foods.
In D'Adamo's book he provides list of highly beneficial foods, neutral
foods, and foods to avoid in these categories: seafood, dairy and eggs,
meats and poultry, oils and fats, nuts and seeds, beans and legumes, breads
and muffins, cereals, grains and pasta, vegetables, fruit, juices and
fluids, spices, condiments, herbal teas, and beverages. He also provides
a dozen recipes for each blood type, and supplement advice and exercise
guidelines that correspond to each blood type's stress reaction.
This is by far in my opinion the best and most precise diet. Blood type
is truly THE factor that determines ones weight gain/lose. This diet plan
can and will work for anyone if followed correctly.
