Eat Right For Your Blood Type

I was recently reminded about the “Eat Right for your Blood Type Diet”, and for me it makes sense that what you eat does react chemically with your blood type.

So could eating a diet based on your blood type  O, A, B, or AB make a difference to you?

By follow a diet designed for your blood type, your body will digest food more efficiently, you will lose weight, have more energy, and ultimately have better healthy into the future.

So here are some of the basis of the theory:


Dietary suggestions for Type O blood:

A high-protein diet containing meat, poultry, fish, and vegetables, a small amount of grains, beans, and dairy are recommended.

O blood types can have digestive issues, so the introduction of foods and liquids that work on the microbiomes of the gut are very beneficial.


Dietary suggestions for Type A blood: 

A vegetarian or vegan diet, based on fruits and vegetables, ideally fresh and organic.

Lots of beans, brown rice, legumes, and whole grains are essential for nutrition and easy digestion.

The A types can have a sensitive immune system but with this diet you can supercharge the immune system.


Dietary suggestions for Type B blood: 

A diet of meat except Chicken suits the B Types

Eating green vegetables, eggs, and low-fat dairy is recommended.

Foods to avoid due to high levels of weight gain are:

Corn, wheat, buckwheat, lentils, tomatoes, peanuts, and sesame seeds.


Dietary suggestions for Type AB blood:

Food choices here include tofu, seafood, dairy, and green vegetables.

AB blood type people tend to have low stomach acid, so avoid caffeine, alcohol, smoked foods and cured meats.

The Blood Type Diet also recommends exercises based on your blood type.

For example, it suggests yoga or tai chi for type A’s, and vigorous aerobic exercises like jogging or biking for up to an hour a day for type O’s.
