Blood Type Diets

This information is definitely worth checking out. There are tons of people who have erased all their health issues (and lost weight too, yay!) just by eating right for their specific blood type! I am only reading a supplemental text that goes along with the main blood type book (Eat Right 4 Your Type: The Individualized Diet Solution to Staying Healthy, Living Longer & Achieving Your Ideal Weight by Peter J. D’Adamo), but I intend to read that one soon. Meanwhile, here are some notes on eating for your blood type in general that I gathered from Blood Type A: Food, Beverage, and Supplement Lists by Dr. Peter J D’Adamo:

  • Your blood type is the “essential defining factor in your health profile”
  • Many foods stick to cells of certain blood types but not to others so that certain food might be bad for one blood type but good for another
  • Chemical reactions between blood and food we eat determine either a good or bad effect on your blood; when you consume foods incompatible with your blood type, certain proteins go and target your organs and blood cells start to stick in that area, therefore interfering with the normal body processes for those organs {NOT GOOD}
  • The blood type diet will “restore the natural protective functions of your immune system, reset your metabolic clock, and clear your blood of dangerous agglutinating lectins [the ‘certain proteins’ I referred to earlier]”

If you are Type A like me, I have attached a helpful document [Blood Type A Diet here] of GOOD, OK, and BAD foods you should or shouldn’t eat. There are food lists for meat, dairy, and seafood in the book but I didn’t include those in my attached document because this is a vegan blog, and because there were so many to type up in the OK and BAD columns, but none for the GOOD list (except a few seafood types). However, the book does mention that Type A’s should be vegetarian; it’s simply programmed into our genes — blood type A originated from our gathering days when settling into agrarian lifestyles, instead of hunting and being nomads.

If you are of another blood type, don’t follow my attached list! Instead check out one of these books:
