The Blood Type Diet Plan
According to the book, “Eat Right For Your Type” by Peter D’Adamo, different blood types have different nutritional requirements. Changing what you eat to fit that parameter will help you to lose weight and get healthy.
Here are the four blood type groups:
* Blood Type A – Anyone with this blood type needs to eat more vegetables and fish on a daily basis. Eating red meat is not recommended and dairy should be ingested in moderation. Your digestive system is sensitive. Only light exercise is recommended for Type A people.
* Blood Type B – You have a strong immune system. Unlike Type A blood, it is recommended that you eat red meat and dairy products. Eating vegetables and fruits in quantity and a little fish is okay. Stay away from the chicken with this blood type.
* Blood Type AB – Your immune system is somewhat strong and you have a creative mind. For you, a combination of the foods to be eaten for Types A and B is acceptable.
* Blood Type O – You love to exercise and are most likely lactose intolerant. Type O dieters eat a diet with plenty of protein and few carbohydrates and dairy products. Avoid foods high in carbohydrates and dairy products. Vigorous exercise will also do you well.
The diet describes how the blood can explain things that happen inside your body. What foods you like, don’t like, your allergies and what foods cause you to lose weight are all determined by your blood type.
The diet is strict in that dieters have to pay close attention to everything that they eat and drink. In his book, Dr. D’Adamo lays out what types of foods are to be eaten for each blood type. Your list of forbidden foods varies but can be long. For those who are constantly on the go, fixing recipes can be time consuming.
The diet recommends exercise when your blood type is in favor of it. Unless you have Type O, exercise will be light. Also, the plan encourages taking vitamin supplements in addition to eating certain foods.
It has not been scientifically proven that those who use the Blood Type Diet lose weight because of their genetics or the fact that they are making healthier food choices. Eating a well-balanced diet that is full of the nutrients you need, will help the body repair itself, boost the immune system and help you to live a longer, stronger and healthier life.
