Dr. Peter J. D’Adamo is a naturopathic physician, who has conducted extensive research on the connection between blood type and disease. In his book, Eat Right 4 Your Blood Type, Dr. D’Adamo claims that our internal chemistry can “unlock the mysteries of disease, longevity, fitness, and emotional strength.”

He lists the foods, beverages, spices, condiments, vitamins and supplements, and exercises that are beneficial for your health, based on your blood type.

4 Blood Types

4 Diets

4 Exercise Programs

4 Plans for a Healthy Life

Although I have only researched the dos and don’ts for my blood type (O), I have listed the highlights for each type, directly from Dr. D’Adamo’s book jacket:

If your blood type is O:

  • Eat meat (high protein, low carbohydrate)
  • Cut out wheat and most other grains
  • Engage in vigorous aerobic exercise
  • Your risk factor for ulcers and inflammatory disease such as arthritis increase if you eat incorrectly for your type

If your blood type is A:

  • You should be a vegetarian (high carbohydrate, low fat)
  • Engage in gentle exercise such as yoga and golf
  • Meditate to deal with stress
  • Your risk factor for cancer and heart disease increase if you eat incorrectly for your type

If your blood type is B:

  • You should have the most varied diet of all the blood types, one including meat; yours is the only blood type that does well with dairy products
  • Engage in exercise such as moderate swimming or walking
  • Your risk for slow-growing viruses that attach the nervous system increase if you eat incorrectly for your type

If your blood type is AB:

  • You have most of the benefits and intolerances of types A and B
  • Engage in calming exercises and relaxation techniques
  • You have the friendliest immune system of all the blood types

Visit Dr. D’Adamo’s website at http://www.dadamo.com here to learn more about your blood type and what makes it unique. He doesn’t disclose a breakdown of the food lists on his site, but you can get that from his books, pocket guide, or his amazing app, which you can download from the App Store for less than $5. I’m having fun playing around with it, and it makes grocery shopping so easy!

Please check out the video clip below for more details about the plan, and for a quick demo of the app.
