Assumed in his book “Eat Right 4 Your Type,” Peter J. D’Adamo ND, a naturopathic physician, believes that your blood type alone is linked to diet you should follow. He finds link through how humans evolved: Type O is the oldest, while Type A came during the emergence of farming communities. Type B appeared with North migration and rougher conditions, while type AB is the newest and most modern, from integration of different races and cultures. Here are some basic guidelines to follow, depending on the type of your.
Type O-The Hunters
D’Adamo claims that type O was the original blood type, and primarily carnivorous. . Type Os tend to be aggressive managers and hasty in making decisions when stressed. Health-wise, suggests D’Adamo as Type Os are more prone to insulin resistance, ulcers and thyroid conditions that can cause weight gain. He recommends that while Type O diet should be high in protein, they should focus on fish and lean meat to cut down on saturated fat. Legumes, beans and grains, especially refined ones that white bread or white rice should be used in very small amounts, depending on your weight, nutritional needs and health history
Type A -. farmers
type who has trouble digesting and metabolizing animal protein and fat, and naturally high levels of cortisol, a stress hormone, which can cause Type As to overeat. For this reason, we propose D’Adamo eliminate or at least limit alcohol, sugar and caffeine, as well as eating small, frequent meals. Type As should follow a mostly vegetarian diet with tofu and seafood for protein sources. If you are looking to lose weight, focus on using vegetable oils, vegetable and soy products in your cooking, while avoiding dairy products and animal proteins
Type B -. the omnivorous
Type Bs have higher levels of cortisol than Type Os or ABS, but not as high as type, and need equal parts meat and vegetables in your diet. Therefore, Type B is about balancing the plant and animal kingdom through vegetables, fruits, dairy products and meat. What Type B must focus on the most is what to avoid: wheat, corn, lentils, tomatoes, peanuts and sesame. D’Adamo claims that each of these select foods affects the metabolic process and will leave Type Bs feeling too tired, while fluid and prone to hypoglycemia. The other foods to avoid is the chicken because it contains a substance in muscle tissue that can lead to immune disorders and stroke in type B.
Type ABS combine both requirements for Types A and B. For example, type ABS need meat but in smaller portions. D’Adamo claims that since ABS has sensitive digest tracts Type Bs, should they choose seafood, dairy products of beef, chicken and pork for their protein needs. Also like Type Bs, they should avoid corn and buckwheat.
