Should You Be Eating For Your Blood Type?


I was reading different health articles yesterday and one in particular caught my eye. It referenced eating for your blood type and I was like, “What?”

I heard about eating for your body type. You know, the pear, apple, orange, etc., but I didn’t know about eating for your blood type. According to some of the descriptions, your blood type can even predict your personality! In fact, some people in Japan will actually ask what your blood type is when you go for an interview so they know what kind of employee you will be.

Crazy, right?

So what is this new way of eating and should you be eating for your blood type?

WebMD describes the diet like this:

Could eating a diet based on your blood type — O, A, B, or AB — help you trim down and get healthier? That’s the idea behind the Blood Type Diet, created by naturopath Peter J. D’Adamo.

D’Adamo 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 help prevent disease.

What You Can Eat

That depends on your blood type. Here’s what D’Adamo recommends for each type:

Type O blood: A high-protein diet heavy on lean meat, poultry, fish, and vegetables, and light on grains, beans, and dairy. D’Adamo also recommends various supplements to help with tummy troubles and other issues he says people with type O tend to have.

Type A blood: A meat-free diet based on fruits and vegetables, beans and legumes, and whole grains — ideally, organic and fresh, because D’Adamo says people with type A blood have a sensitive immune system.

Type B blood: Avoid corn, wheat, buckwheat, lentils, tomatoes, peanuts, and sesame seeds. Chicken is also problematic, D’Adamo says. He encourages eating green vegetables, eggs, certain meats, and low-fat dairy.

Type AB blood: Foods to focus on include tofu, seafood, dairy, and green vegetables. He says people with type AB blood tend to have low stomach acid. Avoid caffeine, alcohol, and smoked or cured meats.
