There are a lot of fad diets out there and a ton of nutritional advice everywhere. But the one that really makes the most sense to me is the blood type diet (http://www.dadamo.com). I read an article recently about how some diets/foods that are good for one person may not be so good for another – but the article didn’t go on to explain why that would be the case. I wonder if they even considered looking at the different blood types. People have different types of blood, and it’s your blood – so I’d imagine that has some importance and that it plays a role in your health.
I’m blood type O. So according to the website, I should avoid wheat, dairy, caffeine, alcohol and focus instead on lean, organic meat, fruits and veggies. I should also strive for brisk, regular, aerobic exercise. There are quite a few books written by the same guy that started the website on the topic, I recently recommended them to the local library and if they become available, I plan to read them. Basing a diet and lifestyle on blood type just makes so much more sense to me than anything else out there. And I think it’s definitely worth consideration and worth a try!
