Many people try different diets in order to lose weight, but you should know that they don’t work the same for all people. Finding the plan that works for you is not easy and requires a lot of time. Luckily, Dr. Peter J. D’Adamo created a blood type diet guide which will show you what you need to eat according to your blood type. As he explains, “When we discuss diet, we are not talking necessarily about a weight loss plan, that’s a side benefit to following this plan. We are actually discussing diet in the more traditional sense, meaning a way to eat.” Continue reading below to learn more about the interesting concept.

Blood type A
According to Dr. D’Adamo, people with blood type A “favor a structured, rhythmic, harmonious life surrounded by a positive, supportive community.” He suggest a vegetarian diet for them – the switch from meat to vegetables should result in significant weight loss. Furthermore, he also recommends an organic diet for these people. “I can’t emphasize enough how critical this dietary adjustment can be to the sensitive immune system of Type A. With this diet you can supercharge your immune system and potentially short circuit the development of life-threatening diseases,” Dr. D’Adamo says.

Blood type B
As the doctor says, these people are more prone to hormonal imbalance due to their increased cortisol production. Dr. D’Adamo’s blood type guide says that people with blood type B often suffer from weight gain due to the consumption of wheat, peanuts, chicken, tomatoes, corn, buckwheat, lentils, etc., which influence their metabolic process. In order to lose weight, these people need to replace chicken with lamb, goat, rabbit, mutton or venison, and eat more low-fat dairy products as well as leafy green veggies.

Blood type AB
People with the AB blood type often suffer from low levels of stomach acid which could be eliminated by consuming smaller and more frequent meals. People with the AB blood type should also limit their alcohol and coffee consumption, and consume fresh fruit and vegetables as well as tofu and seafood. As Dr. D’Adamo suggests, “Avoid all smoked or cured meats. These foods can cause stomach cancer in people with low levels of stomach acid.”

Blood type O
People with blood type O have higher levels of stomach acid which means that they digest meals rich in fat and protein easily. They can consume meat without a problem, but should avoid carbs (grains) as they are easily transformed to fats and triglycerides in the body. According to Dr. D’Adamo, these people should consume lean, organic meat as well as fresh fruit and vegetables.
