The popular Dr. Peter J. D’Adamo, a naturopathic physician in his book Eat Right 4 Your Type, discussed the link to four basic blood types: O, A, B, and AB, to unlocks the door to the mysteries of health, disease, longevity, physical vitality, and emotional strength. His research in anthropology, medical history, and genetics led him to conclude and explains that the practical application of the blood type “key” is that enables you to make informed choices about dietary, exercise, supplement, and even medical treatments.
The type O-People (with type O blood) fare best on intense physical exercise and animal proteins and less well on dairy products and grains. 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. The ideal exercises for Type O’s include aerobics, martial arts, contact sports, and running.
The type A (with blood type A), 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, type A’s can derive significant benefit from calming, centering exercise such as yoga and tai chi.
Type B individuals (with blood type B) have a robust immune system and a tolerant digestive system and tend to resist many of the severe chronic degenerative illnesses. 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.
As summarized by Dr. D’Adamo, Blood Type O thrives on a lean, high protein diet. Blood Type A thrives on a primarily vegetarian diet. Blood Type B thrives on a mixed diet of meat, fish and dairy. Blood Type AB thrives on a modified vegetarian diet. Because of your blood type, with its digestive and immune specificity, it is considered a window on a person’s probable susceptibility and the power to fight over diseases.
