Eat Right For Your Blood Type

 

How many of you actually know what your blood type is? When a co-worker began telling me about eating for your blood type, I was so curious about it so I began reading and learning everything I could. The only thing that I didn’t know was my blood type. Ha! I’m sure at some point in life I was told that I was B+ but it never stuck. There is no point of researching something and you don’t even know where you stand on the spectrum of things. So if you are reading this and you don’t know your blood type, contact your physician or the medical place that you frequent and find out soon. I believe this information is life changing.

Your blood type is something that’s unique to you. I would almost liken it to rather you are an introvert or an extrovert. Your blood type plays a part in your personality and can explain geographical origins?  Yes, it really does. I would’ve never guessed either. Just when you think that your body couldn’t get any more intricate and fascinating, you discover something that makes you feel just a little bit smaller in the big scheme of things.

An example would be the fact that I love chicken but because of my blood type and what is in the muscle of chicken it probably isn’t good for me to eat it. Can you imagine the look on my face when I read that? Lately the craving for fried chicken has been unreal and I admittedly have been giving in to it so to find out that I really should’nt have it is horrific. Lol. No seriously, I think this information is right on time. Sometimes you need something that will save you from yourself and even though some believe that ignorance is bliss, it really is the things that you don’t know that hurt you the most.

Eat Right For Your Blood Type

Here’s what D’Adamo says:

Type O blood: A high-protein diet heavy on lean meat, poultry, fish, and vegetables, and light on grains, beans, and dairy. D’Adamo also recommends various supplements to help with tummy troubles and other issues he says people with type O tend to have.

Type A blood: A meat-free diet based on fruits and vegetables, beans and legumes, and whole grains — ideally, organic and fresh, because D’Adamo says people with type A blood have a sensitive immune system.

Type B blood: Avoid corn, wheat, buckwheat, lentils, tomatoes, peanuts, and sesame seeds.  Chicken is also problematic, D’Adamo says. He encourages eating green vegetables, eggs, certain meats, and low-fat dairy.

Type AB blood: Foods to focus on include tofu, seafood, dairy, and green vegetables. He says people with type AB blood tend to have low stomach acid. Avoid caffeine, alcohol, and smoked or cured meats.

Did you know that there is an association with your blood type and certain diseases you are at risk for? Yes, it is worth it to keep reading…
