I like Dr. Peter D’Adamo (author of the sham diet books). I like that he and his dad did their own little studies with 5 people and keep referencing them over and over in their writings. I love marking up their books and finding mistakes that are evident to any middle school student. Anyway, here’s a handy reference guide that summarize my version of the diet, if you feel the need to try the diet.
BUT FIRST. JUST IN CASE. BLOOD TYPE HAS NOTHING DO WITH NUTRITION. IT DEALS WITH ANTI BODIES AND ANTIGENS THAT ATTACK AND DEAL WITH ISSUES IN YOUR BLOODSTREAM.
Type O blood: A high protein diet relying heavily on meat, poultry, fish, and vegetables. No grains (unless its a cheat day), beans and quinoa. Type O’s have cravings sometimes but rather than sugar foods, try a few sprints on the treadmill instead. Try and stay away from foods with more than three ingredients and where you wouldn’t want to eat those ingredients by themselves, raw.
Type A blood: Look for foods that have no added sugar and don’t come from a factory. Baked salmon and green beans should be your staple. Your breakfast every morning should be eggs and some green tea or coffee with half & half. Avoid foods that are advertised on TV and have raw salmon once a week.
Type B blood: You’ll respond best to a diet of grilled chicken and poached salmon with broccoli. Plenty of eggs and no foods with added sweeteners of any kind. Avoid food from Nabisco, Kraft, Monsanto or supplements recommended by Dr. Oz at all costs.
Type AB blood: AB blood does best with medium rare steaks and sashimi with no rice, ever. Your carbohydrates should be vegetables and you shouldn’t be worried about gluten because foods that contain gluten are junk anyway. No sugar & HFCS. Avoid foods from Post, Kellog’s (Kashi) and companies where workers wear lab coats and mesh hair nets.
IN CLOSING. JUST IN CASE. BLOOD TYPE HAS NOTHING DO WITH NUTRITION. IT DEALS WITH ANTI BODIES AND ANTIGENS THAT ATTACK AND DEAL WITH ISSUES IN YOUR BLOODSTREAM.
OK now we’re all clear. 🙂
