Blood Type Diet

Blood Type Diet

by Richard Kozinski

Eating a diet based on your blood type -- O, A, B, or AB – can help you lose weight and get healthier. That's the idea created by naturopath Peter J. D'Adamo. He claims that the foods you eat react chemically with your blood type. If you follow a diet designed for your blood type, your body will digest food more efficiently. You'll lose weight, have more energy, and even help prevent disease.

Blood Group O was the first blood type which appeared. Those people were hunter-gatherer ancestors who lived around in 50,000 B.C. Dr D’Adamo believes that our type O ancestors survived on a high-protein and meat-based diet, so the type of diet blood group Os should follow.

Next group was blood type A ancestors living around 15,000 B.C. They started to settle into farming-type communities. The creation of blood type A around this time meant that our ancestors did well on a vegetarian-based diet. Dr D’Adamo recommends blood group A’s to follow a vegetarian diet.

Blood type B evolved around 10,000 B.C thanks to our nomadic ancestors. They left their farms and started wandering the land, constantly moving from place to place. Dr D'Adamo's theory says that blood group B’s today can eat a varied diet that consists of most foods including meat, dairy, grains and vegetables.

Blood type AB evolved 1,000 years ago. Dr D'Adamo claims that this blood type helped our ancestors make the transition to modern times. People with blood group AB can eat a mixture of the foods suitable for both blood group A and blood group B.
