Blood Type diet

Is your health tied to your blood type?

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

For some, the key to managing their weight once and for all could have been right under their skin all along. Some researchers suggest that by following a diet compatible with ones own blood type, you could very well unlock the mystery to your personal struggle with losing weight.

Created by Dr. Peter D'Adamo, and also referred to as the "Eat Right 4 Your Type" diet, the Blood Type Diet introduces its scientific research as a plan to help you makeover your lifestyle and start living healthier.

Your blood type can have a lot to do with the way in which your body processes, digests and metabolizes food and nutrients. Adhering to the Blood Type Diet, you'll eat foods that are most complimentary to your body. You'll first need to identify your own blood type and then follow a plan as outlined below.

PRO
  • If research is true, you will not only achieve weight loss, but a natural defense to common illnesses like cancer, diabetes and cardiovascular disease
  • Author is authority on subject, respected in field
CON
  • The Blood Type diet can be quite restrictive

This diet is ver similar to the way I like to eat naturally..I am an A blood type and I've tried other diets from Atkins to Weight Watchers and I always went back to the Blood Type Diet because I felt good, and balanced and was able to lose weight.

Eight years ago I was 80 lbs heavier than I am today. Had skin, breathing, aching joints, brain fog, high blood pressure, yeast problems along with other problems. When I first found BTD, my doctor had me taking water pills (which only made me feel worse) and was ready to put me on blood pressure medicine. I didn't want to be a pill popper for the rest of my life. BTD fell into my life, more than once as I kept trying to avoid it. Once I got onto the diet (only took less than two weeks to convince me) I knew that this was the way of life for me. Started cooking from scratch again and eliminated all processed foods and stuck with the foods that Dr. D suggested. After seven years, Dr. D came along with the Genotype diet. For over one year now I have been a gatherer on this way of life and things have improved even more. I know a lot of people are sceptical of this way of eating. Don't knock it till you have tried it...and if if isn't working for you...you aren't following it properly.

The BTD family members and Dr. D and affiliates are not scammers. We are just ordinary people trying to get on with our lives living it without pain and suffering from the foods that we ingest. Have you read all of the garbage that gets put into our food nowadays. That is what is making us sick. Unless you take your health and food into your own hands...your doctor will be seeing you regularly.

I have suffered from mild acne for 30 years.... the BTD completely cleared my skin. I have mild arthritis from years of distance running, and I have found some relief in following the diet.. I hope to find more! I had been a vegetarian for 15 years ... the acne was going on during this time.. and my cholesterol was sky high at 250 something.... once I started on the O diet, it DROPPED to below 150. I personally loved being a vegetarian, but I feel SO much better eating Dr. D'Adamo's way...

It works as far as it goes. I have been on it for a couple of years, but find that the information about what to eat for my blood type is incomplete and the information is not readily available. You need to use common sense as far as how strictly to follow it. It confirmed what I know about myself from previous experience so there must be a basis that is sound. I don't think it is the whole story however.

SCAM ALL THE WAY, STAY AWAY. Look it up on wikipedia, they'll tell you. The forum is full of scammers and dumb followers. They all get you sick and try to make you buy more. Dr. D'ADAMO is one sick person!!!

Excellent plan for dealing with disease. D'adamo's new book, The Genotype Diet, addresses weight loss more specifically.

Works better than any other diet that I have tried. I started it 7 years ago because of health problems. In that time I have tried other diets, but always return since I get sick on the other diets and I do not like being sick.



It has greatly reduced headaches. I only get hives when I eat foods not recommended for my blood type. Digestion is greatly improved.

This isn't a diet! It's a lifestyle change for great health. I've been overweight all my life and the only way I ever lost weight was to exercise 2 hours a day and hurt my body. I couldn't even kneel down without major pain. I tried this "diet". What a difference. Eating whatever I want that I'm allowed for my type I loose about a pound every week or two without trying. It's easy! No injuring exercise. I walk and bike ride when weather permits. Then I loose more! The best thing is my joints don't hurt! I can do anything now with no pain!

This diet isn't necessarily about weight loss. Both my sisters swear by it today, they have been on the diet for a year. Up until they both started this diet, they were in and out of the doctor. One was on Nexium for acid reflux, and the other was soon to be. When they were prescribed the purple pill, they were told they would never get off. Today both haven't any heartburn or acid reflux problems, and they have only needed to go to the doctor for the usual checkups and things. This diet is strict for both, but they live by it today, and because of their success, the rest of our family is taking thier lead and following. Even some of their friends have followed. The only really big problem with this diet is that some of the foods are hard to come by unless you have a Whole Foods or the likes near by. Kroger isn't so good at carrying some of the types of products these diets recommend.

I have. It worked better for me than South Beach. I lost about 20lbs. Ive always had a lot of food sensitivities and reading the book made sense for a lot of those. I've always had trouble with diets because of my sensitivities. I can't eat a lot of grains, milk, soy, etc. So it helped me find a way to eat well and feel much healthier.
