Blood Type Diet
The blood type diet is a diet developed by Dr. Peter D'Adamo. This diet consists of matching blood type and dietary needs for the optimum nutritional value. This diet also breaks down into three different ethnicities, those of Caucasian, Asian and African decent. The theory behind The Blood type diet is that certain foods have positive effects on certain blood types and certain other foods have a more toxic value when eaten by a certain blood type.
Simply put, The Blood Type Diet suggests that different blood types have different needs and blend and benefit differently with different types of food. Examples of this are that type B blood benefits from dairy products, type O blood benefits from meat, type A blood should eat vegetables and avoid meats, and type AB is a combination of types A and B.
Dr. D'Adamo has written a book called Eat Right For Your Type and has a web site that supports the Blood type Diet. There are forums for discussion and recipes available as well on the website.
