Trading in the Unibrow for a Bloody Mare-y!

It’s time to shed my inner cavewoman and pass the Bam Bam baton to the next diet claim I’ll be testing, and what better way to do that than to get rid of this nasty unibrow! image
Thank you to Chi-Chi Laser Studios (http://www.chi-chi.ca/)  who painlessly zapped at least 5lbs of hair off of me and made me feel light, smooth and purrrdy!  I didn’t take any photos of my session (there’s no way you can take a selfie when you’re contorted like a Cirque du Soleil performer!), instead, here’s a picture of what I hope my AFTER photo will look like.

The next plan I’ll be testing hit the diet stage in 1996 and it’s one I’ve wanted to try since I first heard about it. However, it seemed complicated in a multi-member family household because it’s not a ‘one-size fits all’ plan, and would require making different meals to suit each ‘type’. But now that I’m on my own, it’s the perfect time to try it!

While most diets are ‘off-the-rack’, Dr. Peter J. D’Adamo’s, Eat Right 4 Your Blood Type is tailored to your specific blood type: O, A, B, AB.

He states:

If you’ve ever suspected that not everyone should eat the same thing or do the same exercise, you’re right. Your blood type reflects your internal chemistry. It actually determines the way you absorb nutrients. What foods you absorb well and how your body handles stress differ with each blood type. Eat Right 4 Your Type will help you design a total health program that’s right for your blood type.

Well, let’s put the good doctor’s claim to the test this month to see if his theory is medically sound, or if he’s selling us snake oil.
