Weight loss is a hot topic around the world. People are trying to lose weight any way they can by following different kinds of diets, and although some of them are effective, most do more harm than good. When choosing a diet, there are numerous factors you need to pay attention to, including your blood type. Knowing this, Dr. Peter D’Adamo invented the so-called Blood Type Diet which is based on the blood type and personality of a person.
As Dr. D’Adamo puts it, “When we’re talking about a diet, we’re not necessarily talking about a weight loss plan – that’s a side benefit. We are actually talking about a diet in a more traditional way of eating.”
Here’s what the doctors suggests you should eat according to your blood type:
Blood type A
People with this blood type prefer a harmonious and positive life. The best diet that suits them is a vegetarian diet. Dr. D’Adamo also recommends consuming pure, organic and fresh food. “I can’t stress the importance of choosing the right foods for the blood type A group. The foods need to boost the immune system in order to prevent serious diseases,” he says.
Blood type B
These people are prone to many diseases and conditions and imbalances as well. When exposed to stress, their bodies release more cortisol, which can result in different health problems including weight gain. People with this blood type usually gain weight due to foods that affect their metabolism such as lentils, corn, chicken, peanuts, tomatoes, buckwheat and wheat, which is why they should avoid these foods and eat lamb, rabbit, venison and mutton meat, as well as low-fat dairy products and green vegetables.
Blood type AB
People with the AB blood type suffer from low levels of stomach acid, which means that they can’t digest meat properly. The meat they consume can’t be properly metabolized, ending up as fat and causing them to gain weight. These digestive problems can be resolved by eating frequent smaller meals throughout the day instead of 2-3 big ones. Dr. D’Adamo also suggests avoiding alcohol and caffeine, and including more dairy products, tofu, seafood and green vegetables in their diet.
Blood type O
Contrary to the previous group, people with blood type O have high levels of stomach acid, which means that they can digest fat and protein, but have problems with carbs. According to Dr. D’Adamo, they should avoid simple carbs such as grains, but can eat meat freely. People with blood type O should also avoid caffeine and alcohol and focus on vegetables, lean meat and fruits.
