Naturopathic doctor and author of Eat Right for Your Type, Peter J. D'Adamo rejects the idea that one diet fits all. He has introduced the world to a revolutionary new way to eat and live - a groundbreaking diet plan based on your blood type. Our blood type is a roadmap to our inner chemistry and each blood type processes food, handles stress, and fights disease differently. With four unique blood types, why shouldn't we have four specialized diet plans? Find out what you should be eating, and how you should be exercising according your blood type.
Food for Thought
Type O for “old”, as in humanity's oldest blood type. “Your digestive tract retains the memory of ancient times”, says D'Adamo, so your metabolism will benefit from lean meats, poultry, and fish. You're advised to eliminate grains, breads, and legumes, and enjoy vigorous exercise.
With four unique blood types, why shouldn't we have four specialized diet plans?
Type A for “agrarian”, the inheritance of more settled and less warlike farmer ancestors, flourishes on vegetarian diets. Focus on soy proteins, grains, and organic vegetables. Exercise more mildly, and ease tension through meditation.
Type B is the “nomadic blood type”, has a tolerant digestive system and can enjoy low-fat dairy, meat and produce but, among other things, should avoid wheat, corn, and lentils. It's recommended you exercise moderately.
Type AB is the “modern blood type”, has the most benefits and intolerances of types A and B. AB has a sensitive digestive tract and should avoid chicken, beef, and pork but enjoy seafood, tofu, dairy, and most produce. The fitness regimen for AB is calming exercises.
