Blood type diet review
Nowadays, many efforts are
invested to research how to improve metabolism and gain weight loss
by consuming right food. For this same purpose suggested Dr. Peter
D'Adamo, naturopath and the author of the book "Eat Right For Your Type
", new form of diet.
According to Dr. D'Adamo, metabolism and wellbeing can be significantly
improved by consuming appropriate food matching your blood type.
In simple words, Metabolism is
Chemical reaction between blood and consumed food. If they match then
reaction is more efficient and you feel healthier, you'll
lose weight and you'll lower the risk of many serious illnesses.
How it works
Blood group determines how our
bodies deal with various nutrients. Each blood group has its unique
antigen (marker). Food contains protein substances – Lectins,
which have agglutinating properties and tend to bind with glucose
molecules prominent from walls of cell. When eaten incompatible to your
blood type food, Lectin begins to agglutinate to the blood or body
Different Lectins target different organs or body system.
When Lectin is agglutinating to:
1. mucosa in bowels - digestive problems appear;
2. blood cells - increased blood clotting is caused;
3. insulin receptors - metabolic problems;
4. nerve cells - hyperactivity;
5. when they irritate immune system to produce antibodies - auto-immune
allergies and illnesses appears.
The Blood type is inherited on
genetic basis. Molecules determine blood type are made up from glucose
which tails are prominent from walls of cell. It turns out that Lectins
are agglutinating differently to various types of blood.
For instance: Lectin of chicken
meat agglutinates to blood type of AB and B and as such causes to
increased congelation of blood. For
the long term it might deteriorate to stroke or heart attack. On the
other hand in blood type O, molecules binding this specific Lectin are absent, thus they may
consume chicken safely.
diaries contain sugar - Galactose which is similar to
molecule of blood type B. Therefore B
type blood owners may consume milk diaries with increased tolerance but
in case of O or A type appearance of allergic response might be
turns out that blood type determines hormone levels in the human body
and even its nervous responses (moods) too. Therefore it’s
reasonable to think that differences of blood type may explain
personality of human being: Depression or Impulsivity is common for
owners of blood type O, restlessness for type A, and excessive
sensitivity for owners of type B.
Fortunately, not all Lectins in
our food are life threatening (most of them aren’t). In 95%
of cases our immune system eliminates them but about 5% succeed to
intrude to bloodstream and cause to problems in different organs.
Dr. D'Adamo believes
that stomach acidity and digestive enzyme levels are related to our
blood type. Diet designed according to blood type will ease on
digestive system to absorb food more effectively and prevent negative
effect of Lectines.
The Evolution of Blood Types
He believes that blood types
were evolved in different stages of human evolution thus the food we
should consume have to be similar to that of our ancestors.
According to this wierd theory:
Type O was evolved 50,000B.C
when our ancestors were hunter-gathers and had high-protein, meat-based
Type B was evolved 15,000B.C
when the hunter-gathering lifestyle was replaced with farming type
lifestyle and their main food was based of veggie.
Type B supposedly was evolved
around 10,000B.C when our ancestors leave behind farms and started
wandering the land. Their diet changed to more varied including meat,
dairy, grains, and vegetables.
Type AB was
evolved just 1,000 years ago and the meaning is that AB group
individuals can consume mixture of food suitable for type A and type B
Each of this four blood types
have a detailed list of recommended food to avoid and those that should
Moreover, each group of
blood type have recommended activities or exercises just like their
