What’s your blood type?

12 Oct

So, recently a friend told me about ‘The Blood Type Diet

I was a little unsure about it but it’s very, very interesting and could be worth some serious thought.

What if it was obvious what we should and should not eat. You can find your own diet plan for your blood type here

So, I’ve been doing some research and according to my blood type, which is A, I should be doing the following; Tai Chi and Yoga – interesting, calming exercises are a much better preference for me, running and intensive exercise is a huge no no.

So, here’s what the doctor has to say re; blood types and diet.

Type O-People with type O blood fare best on intense physical exercise and animal proteins and less well on dairy products and grains, says Dr. D’Adamo. The leading reason for weight gain among Type O’s is the gluten found in wheat products and, to a lesser extent, lentils, corn, kidney beans, and cabbage, Dr. D’Adamo explains. Ideal exercises for Type O’s include aerobics, martial arts, contact sports, and running.

Type A-Those with blood type A, however, are more naturally suited to a vegetarian diet and foods that are fresh, pure, and organic. As Type A’s are predisposed to heart disease, cancer, and diabetes, “I can’t emphasize how critical this dietary adjustment can be to the sensitive immune system of Type A,” says Dr. D’Adamo. Type A’s prefer calming, centering exercise, such as yoga and tai chi.

Type B-Type B’s have a strong immune system and a tolerant digestive system and tend to resist many of the severe chronic degenerative illnesses, or at least survive them better than the other blood types. Type B’s do best with moderate physical exercise requiring mental balance, such as hiking, cycling, tennis, and swimming.

Type AB-Blood type AB, the most recent, in terms of evolution, of the four groups and an amalgam of types A and B, is the most biologically complex. For this group, a combination of the exercises for types A and B works best, says Dr. D’Adamo.

So, all a bit strange? Yes, perhaps but it might actually work. We’ll see………only time will tell.

Here is an example of a typical Type A diet plan
