Raise your virtual hand if you have heard of eating for your blood type?
Eating for your blood type is fairly new to popular culture, and there’s been some debate about its effectiveness, but quite a few people have had great weight loss and stress reduction results using it.
The idea is that our blood type is directly linked to the entire internal make up of our bodies. Everything from how much stress we can handle to the digestive enzymes in our stomach hinges on our blood type. It follows that people who have different blood types should have different diets. There is a ton of literature out there on the subject, but according to Dr. Peter J. D’Adamo, this is how each blood type is supposed to eat.
- Type A: Called the agrarian, or cultivator. People who are type A should eat a diet rich in plants, and completely free of “toxic” red meat. This closely resembles a vegetarian diet.
- Type B: Called the nomad. These people can eat plants and most meats (except chicken and pork), and can also eat some dairy. However, they should avoid wheat, corn, lentils, tomatoes, and a few other foods.
- Type AB: Called the enigma. Described as a mix between types A and B. Foods to eat include seafood, tofu, dairy, beans and grains. They should avoid kidney beans, corn, beef and chicken.
- Type O: Called the hunter. This is a high-protein diet based largely on meat, fish, poultry, certain fruits and vegetables, but limited in grains, legumes and dairy. It closely resembles the paleo diet.
