"Eat right for your type", Naturopathic physician, Peter D’Adamo, published this book in 1996. The book's details how people can become healthier, increase longevity, and reach their ideal weight by eating according to their blood type ( A+, A-, B+, B-, O+, O-, AB+, AB-).
Naturopathic medicine blends modern scientific thinking with traditional and natural forms of medicine. Natural modalities—such as nutrition, lifestyle counseling and botanical medicine are used to optimize lifestyles and treat illness.
Naturopathic doctors work according to a set of basic principles that activate the natural healing power of the body and address causes for underlying disease. It does not focus on alleviating symptoms.
The theory behind the blood type diet is based on the notion that your blood type can determine the foods you should consume in order to achieve your optimal health. D'Adamo also believes that within the stage of digestion of various foods there are differences in the digestive tract secretions associated with each blood type. He also goes on to suggest that if you design a meal plan that is specifically for your blood type, you are able to digest with greater efficiency and avoid the negative effects of certain ingredients, lose weight, and enhance one's overall health.
So what are the types of foods should be eaten or restricted for each blood type?
