The idea behind the diet plan in Eat Right 4 Your Type, also called the blood type diet, is simply following a diet and lifestyle that suits your blood type. This healthy habit will help you reach your ideal weight, and even slow down the aging process.
If you follow a diet designed for your blood type, your body will digest food more efficiently. You’ll lose weight, have more energy, and help prevent disease.
Here are some of the recommendations according to the “Eat Right for Your Type” diet:
Those with type O blood should choose high-protein foods and eat lots of meat, vegetables, fish, and fruit but limit grains, beans, and legumes. To lose weight, seafood, kelp, red meat, broccoli, spinach, and olive oil are best; wheat, corn, and dairy are to be avoided.
Those with type A blood should choose fruit, vegetables, tofu, seafood, turkey, and whole grains but avoid meat. For weight loss, seafood, vegetables, pineapple, olive oil, and soy are best; dairy, wheat, corn, and kidney beans should be avoided.
Those with type B blood should pick a diverse diet including meat, fruit, dairy, seafood, and grains. To lose weight, type B individuals should choose green vegetables, eggs, liver, and licorice tea but avoid chicken, corn, peanuts, and wheat.
Those with type AB blood should eat dairy, tofu, lamb, fish, grains, fruit, and vegetables. For weight loss, tofu, seafood, green vegetables, and kelp are best but chicken, corn, buckwheat, and kidney beans should be avoided.
If you don’t already know your blood type, you’ll need to find that out. The results will determine exactly what you need to do and how to approach this diet option.
Depending on your blood type, you may need to severely restrict the foods you eat. Your blood type will determine your shopping list and your choices when eating out.
The Blood Type Diet recommends exercises based on your blood type. For instance, it suggests yoga or tai chi for type A, and vigorous aerobic exercises like jogging or biking for up to an hour a day for type O.
If you are in search of a new way to approach a diet and exercise program, then following your somatotype is a way to maximize your strength and correct weaknesses.
