The Diet That Knows You Best
If you’ve ever suspected that not everyone should eat the same thing or do the same exercise, you’re right. In fact, what foods we absorb well and how our bodies handle stress differ with each blood type. Your blood type has everything to do with how you digest your food, your ability to respond to stress, your mental state, the efficiency of your metabolism, and the strength of your immune system. The Blood Type Diet system acts like a roadmap to your overall health and wellness and is based on your individual blood type.

Renowned naturopath Dr. Peter J. D'Adamo inherited from his father, the notion that people of different blood types do better on certain diets. Years of validating and synthesizing the science behind the idea culminated in the 1996 award-winning book Eat Right 4 Your Type. The bestseller was followed by a series of books on the connections between blood type and many of our nation's most serious health problems, including diabetes, cancer and heart disease.

What makes a food a Beneficial, Neutral, or Avoid?
Beneficial foods do not contain the harmful lectins (proteins that can agglutinate blood) present in Avoids nor do they raise bowel toxicity. Beneficials contain an enzyme known to react positively with the antigen of the blood type. They are metabolized well by the digestive tract and can protect against some ABO-specific diseases.Neutral foods simply act as foods. While the
Neutral foods may not have the special health benefits of the Beneficials, they're certainly good for the body and contain many nutrients needed.
Avoid foods are the opposite of Beneficials. Whereas Beneficial foods act as medicine, Avoid foods can be toxic, possessing harmful lectins or other properties that can react adversely with the specific blood type. These foods are incompatible in terms of healthy digestion relative to the acid/alkaline balance of the digestive tract.
What are lectins?
Lectins are proteins, chiefly of plant origin, that bind to certain specific sugars and cause agglutination of particular cells. Different bodies react differently to lectins based on blood type. You can also watch a video about Lectins HERE
What does it mean when a food value says "Unkown?"
This indicates that the food has not yet been evaluated. There are some foods where there just is not sufficient data to make a determination for some or all the blood types.
Does the Rh factor matter on The Blood Type Diet?
Rh factor (what distinguishes A+ blood from A- blood, for example) is not important for The Blood Type Diet.
Why are foods valued differently for different blood types?
The processing of certain foods can change their chemical composition, thus changing their Blood Type Diet classification. Concentration, fiber, phytonutrients among other things may change.
