Dr. Peter J.D’ Adamo has shown that there is a relationship between blood group and food intake. According to him, blood type refers one’s own internal chemistry. Actually it determines the way one absorbs and metabolizes the nutrients. Moreover, what foods will be tolerated well in one’s body is also determined by the blood group only.
He has also provided the list of the food items that can be tolerated by the persons of various blood groups.
- If your blood group is ‘O’ you should take high protein (high intake of meat) low carbohydrate (cut out wheat and most of the other grains) meal.
- If your blood group is ‘A’ you should follow a vegetarian diet.
- If your blood group is ‘B’ you should have a very varied diet including meat, dairy products, cereals, fruits and vegetables.
- If your blood group is ‘AB’ you will have most of the benefits and intolerances of types A and B. Accordingly you have to adjust your dietary intake.
