Diet as blood types or which is called “Eat Right For Your Type Diet” by the writer, Dr. Peter J.D. Adamo believes that everyone must consume foods based on his / her blood type. Because according to him each blood type (O,A,B,AB) has its own specialty. Starting from what kinds of food which are easily absorbed by body, the right exercise, what disease is easy to perch and also how body gives response to stress will be decided by your own blood type. Body absorbs and gives reaction to food we eat on different way according to the type of blood.
This reaction is influenced by lectin, a kind of protein in blood. Diet as blood type based on food which is divided as group of useful foods, neutral and to be avoided. The useful group is analogized as vitamin, on the contrary group to be avoided as toxins. And neutral group is approximately having a role as common foods that provide calorie and nutrient for body. If it isn’t consumed in over amount.
