Blood Type Diet - Type BMichael Lam, MD, MPHwww.DrLam.comThe sturdy and alert Type Bs are usually able to resist many of the most severe diseases commonto modern life, such as heart disease and cancer. In fact, a Type B who carefully follows therecommended diet can often bypass severe disease and live a long and healthy life. Type Bs aremore prone to immune-system disorders such as multiple sclerosis, lupus, and chronic fatiguesyndrome.The Type B Diet is balance and wholesome, including a wide variety of foods.For Type Bs, the biggest factors in weight gain are corn, buckwheat, lentils, peanuts and sesameseeds. These foods have different lectin that affect the efficiency of the metabolic process,resulting in fatigue, fluid retention, and hypoglycemia. The gluten lectin in wheat germ andwhole wheat products also adds to the problems cause by other metabolism-slowing foods.It is important to leave off chicken for Type Bs. Chicken contains a Blood Type B agglutinatinglectin in its muscle tissue, which attack the bloodstream and potentially lead to strokes andimmune disorders. Type Bs thrive on deep-ocean fish, but should avoid all shellfish. Theshellfish contain lectins that are disruptive to the Type B system.Type B is the only blood type that can fully enjoy a variety of dairy foods. Most nuts and seeds(especially peanuts, sesame seeds and sunflower seeds) are not advised for Type Bs., theycontain lectins that interfere with Type B insulin production.Wheat is not tolerated well by most Type Bs. They contain a lectin that reduce insulin efficiencyand failure to stimulate fat "burning". Rye contains a lectin that settles in the vascular system,causing blood disorders and potentially strokes. Corn and buckwheat are major factors in Type Bweight gain, they contribute to a sluggish metabolism, insulin irregularity, fluid retention, andfatigue.Eliminate tomatoes completely from Type B diet. It has lectins that irritate the stomach lining.Fruits and vegetables are generally well tolerated and should be taken generously.Blood Type Diet - Type OMichael Lam, MD, MPHwww.DrLam.comType Os thrive on intense physical exercise and animal protein. Unlike the other blood types,Type Os muscle tissue should be slightly on the acid side. Type Os can efficiently digest andmetabolize meat because they tend to have high stomach-acid content. The success of the Type
O Diet depends on the use of lean, chemical-free meats, poultry, and fish. Type Os don't finddairy products and grains quite as user friendly as do most of the other blood types.The initial weight loss on the Type O Diet is by restrictingconsumption of grains, breads, legumes, and beans. The leadingfactor in weight gain for Type Os is the gluten found in wheat germand whole wheat products, which interferes with insulin efficiencyand slow down metabolic rate. Another factor that contribute toweight gain is certain beans and legumes (lentils and kidney beans)contain lectins that deposit in the muscle tissues making them less"charged" for physical activity. The third factor in Type O weightgain is that Type Os have a tendency to have low levels of thyroidhormone or unstable thyroid functions, which also cause metabolicproblems. Therefore it is good to avoid food that inhibits thyroidhormone (cabbage, brussels sprouts, cauliflower, mustard green) but increase hormoneproduction (kelp, seafood, iodized salt).Several classes of vegetables can cause big problems for Type Os, such as the Brassica family(cabbage, cauliflower, etc.) can inhibit the thyroid function. Eat more vegetables that are high inVitamin K, which helps the clotting factor which is weak in Type Os. The nightshade vegetablescan cause lectin deposit in the tissue surrounding the joints.Because of the high acidity stomach, Type Os should eat fruits of alkaline nature such as berriesand plums..Type Os should severely restrict the use of dairy products. Their system is not designed for theproper metabolism. If you are a Type O of African ancestry, you should eliminate dairy foodsand eggs altogether.Blood Type Diet - Type AMichael Lam, MD, MPHwww.DrLam.com Type As flourish on vegetarian diets Type As are predisposed to heart disease, cancer, anddiabetes. It is particularly important for sensitive Type As to get their foods in as natural a stateas possible: fresh, pure, and organic. When you get on the Type A Diet, you will naturally bethinner. If you are accustomed to eating meat, you'll lose weight rather rapidly in the beginningas you eliminate the toxic foods from your diet. And when you follow the Type diet, you cansupercharge your immune system and potentially short-circuit the development of life-threatening diseases.When Type As eat meat, they experience sluggishness. Type As have low stomach-acid content,therefore they have a hard time digesting meat. Since Type As eat very little animal protein, nuts
