I am an advocate for all of us trying to live our healthiest and fullest lives.Healthbegins with what we put in our mouths, use on our bodies and in our houses.
Health does not only require getting your annual check-up by your GP, it means so much more. It means paying attention to what affects your body and how it affects it.
With that being said, there are many different ways to approach health. This week, we touch on The Blood Type Diet. A diet that focuses on Dr. D'adamo's research that showed people of a particular diet responding to different ways in a particular way.
His research noticed that particular blood types had aversions to particular food and others not.
Here is how different food groups should eat:
• Type As
This blood type is recommended to eat mostly fresh organic vegetables, fruit, grains and fish. Dr. D'Adamo also recommends steering clear of meat. He mentions that Type As have slow digestion and eating meat interferes with the digestion process. Type As should drink ginger, licorice and calming teas.
This blood type is recommended to eat mostly fresh organic vegetables, fruit, dairy and fish. Type Bs can also eat meat but in small portions. They have stronger digestion systems than Bs; however, they favour lighter foods.
This blood type is recommended to eat mostly fresh organic vegetables and healthy amounts of meat. Healthy meaning 'not too much'. He says that, for the most part, Type Os have difficulty being vegetarians as their body's crave meat- which is totally fine. He believes that we all eat differently for a reason. Which, I agree with. He mentions that Os should not eat gluten as the combination of proteins can cause serious stomache illness.
The rarest blood type is said to be a combination of A and B blood type. Meaning that they eat mostly like As and Bs. Mostly fresh organic, fruits, vegetables and grains. They are, however, recommended to stay away from meat, dairy and gluten.
