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.

  • Overacidity is at the root of all sickness and disease and it is what is keeping you fat. It “sets the stage for chaos, opening the door to sickness and disease.”
  • Your body is vulnerable to germs ONLY when there is overacidity. In an alkaline environment, germs can’t even grab hold! That’s why if you start getting sick, start eating veggies and fruits and get rid of your crap food (and drinks). Continue reading
