TITLE: Eat Right 4 Your Type: 4 Blood Types, 4 Diets
AUTHOR: Dr. Peter D'Adamo
PUB. YEAR: 2016 edition
I read this book 10+ years ago out of curiosity but never followed the recommendations. Now in my 60's and in pretty good health except for and under active thyroid for which I take a pill each day. I am also constantly bothered by post nasal drip. I also began to suspect I was lactose intolerant due to stomach issues after consuming milk and cheese products, so I decided to revisit this book.
BINGO: Type A and dairy products are not compatible. In fact Type A's have a sensitive immune system and do best with a vegetarian diet: plenty of fruits and veggies and whole grains (no tomatoes, corn, peppers or potatoes, cabbage, eggplant and mushrooms are also no-nos, as is shellfish and meat - turkey is okay as is some whitefish).
TYPE A's also do best with gentle exercise like yoga, golf and meditation.
Many people claim to lose a good amount of weight following the plan, based on your blood type. I just started by eliminating dairy this week and feel better already - bye, bye, bloating. The book also recommended starting each morning (before coffee) with a cup of warm water and squeezed lemon - boy does that work in helping to eliminate excess mucous. I'm seeing positive results by just making these 2 small changes thus far. I never ate much meat anyways so total elimination would not be an issue for me.
This book just made sense to me considering the fact that not everyones internal chemistry functions in the same manor. I liked the insight as to how to fight off illness, have more energy and how to slow down the aging process. Have you read it?
