"What would you say if I told you that the secret to healthy, vigorous, and disease-free living might be as simple as knowing your blood type," ask Dr. Peter D'Adamo and Catherine Whitney, and in Eat Right 4 Your Type, they shows us the simple answer.

If you've ever suspected that not everyone should eat the same thing or do the same exercise, you're right. In fact, what foods we absorb well and how our bodies handle stress differ with each blood type.

Your blood type reflects your internal chemistry. It is the key that unlocks the mysteries of disease, longevity, fitness, and emotional strength. It determines your susceptibility to illness, the foods you should eat, and ways to avoid the most troubling health problems.

Only recently have all the pieces of the scientific and clinical puzzle started coming together. Dr. D'Adamo has spent the past fifteen years researching the connections among blood type and exercise, food, and disease, and his research is built on thirty years of work done by his father.

In Eat Right 4 Your Type he shows:
which foods, spices, teas, and condiments help someone of your blood type maintain optimal health and ideal weight;
which vitamins and supplements to emphasize or avoid;
which medications function best in your system;
whether your stress goes to your muscles or your nervous system;
whether your stress is relieved better through aerobics or meditation;
whether you should walk, swim or play tennis or golf as your mode of exercise;
how knowing your blood type can help you avoid many common viruses and infections;
how knowing your blood type can help you fight back against life-threatening diseases;
how to slow down the aging process by avoiding factors specific to your blood type that cause rapid cell deterioration.

Eat Right 4 Your Type provides a clear, simple life plan that anyone can follow and suggests the easiest ways to determine your blood type and diet for your blood type. Here is a breakthrough book that will change the way we eat and live.

Shows how the evolution of Bl. Types A, B and AB from the original human hunter/gatherer blood type O coincided with the agricultural revolution and nomadic migrations of human prehistory. Makes the case for four different diets and exercise regimens based on blood type, showing how the diets can be used to bring about or enhance curative measures taken for common diseases. Clearly written and persuasive.read more

This is an interesting take on food choices. It details the foods that one should or should not eat, based on their blood type. D'Adamo believes that our digestion/calorie usage is based on evolution and the dietary choices available as blood types evolved - so, for example, if you're an O blood type, your genetics are 10s of thousands of years old, so your diet should be bases on the food-types that would have been available at the time of O's evolution.It's all very logical. As you read it, it'll make great sense.But... there is no evidence/proof of his hypotheses. He sounds completely sensible (and maybe he is), but there is no body of proof from any other sources that support his conclusions.read more

I was intrigued by the idea that your blood type determines your diet type. I read this book before I knew my blood type and was convinced I was an A . Turns out I am an O . I thought it was especially interesting that the O diet was heavy on red meat. I'm a vegetarian and have been for more than half of my life. I wouldn't change my diet to include red meat.read more
