Could eating a diet based on your blood type — O, A, B, or AB — help you trim down and get healthier? That’s the idea behind the Blood Type Diet, created by Dr. Peter J. D’Adamo.
Noted Naturopathic physician D’Adamo claims 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’ll lose weight, have more energy, and help prevent disease!
Type A: Those with type A blood, according to D’Adamo, have an extra-sensitive immune system and need to avoid stress triggers and eat a mostly vegetarian diet to “enjoy the innately settled, creative state” characteristic of type As.
Type B: According to D’Adamo, people with blood type B are innately adaptable and open. They have a strong immune system and “balanced” nervous system, and will benefit from a mix of meditative activities and more intense physical exercise. Type Bs are prescribed a very meat-heavy, omnivorous diet that excludes some grains and chicken.
Type AB: Blood Type ABs are told to address their highly sensitive digestive tract through a mixed diet: tofu, seafood, greens, and kelp are in, while no-nos include chicken, corn, kidney beans, and buckwheat. Type ABs should also keep their nervous system calm through centering physical activity and moderate exercise.
Type O: According to the program, blood type Os have a hardy digestive tract and strong immune system. It’s recommended they to eat a high protein diet and avoid most grains, legumes, and dairy products (leaving red meat as a staple) so they can be the “strong, self-reliant leader” their Type O blood type predicts.
