Eating for your blood type

Like Tree128Likes

I don't understand the 'it didn't work' statement.

Maybe people are using the word 'diet' differently. I'm using it in term of what you eat. Your diet being the food you consume. Not a particular calorie restriction meant to lose weight.

To me, not digesting food well doesn't just mean you have gas. It means youre uncomfortable, you have an upset stomach, you don't feel well. Sometimes you can't always pinpoint what causes it through trial and error. Its an interesting concept that I may consider to alleviate digestive issues.

If I find there is a connection, then cool. I'd prefer to do what my body likes than what it doesn't.


The other interesting connection is that its being discussed how gut microbes are responsible for your digestion, and people have different microbes that their body is working off of. There are 3 different types of gut microbes - just as there are 3 different types of blood (AB being a combination type). I'm interested in how blood types could be in connection with the microbes in your stomach, therby connecting your ability to digest certain foods with your type of blood.

Yes, in America eating becomes scientific. Because we are a country that focuses on science. And because we eat so many types of food.

Maybe some people consider this nitpicky, but reason matters. Saying, "I follow diet X and it works for me," makes sense. Saying, "I follow diet X and it works for me because of Y," when not only is there no evidence to support Y but every bit of evidence out there directly contradicts it, is something that needs to be called out.

I see no reason for that in this situation other than to try and act superior.

LIke many things, even with scientific evidence like this, it may be, or may not be true because they constantly collect data, but does everything here need to be so negative? I mean, whats the point? I wasn't all like - omg I read this and now I live my life by it and you should too!!


It was an article I thought was interesting. There is no reason to 'call someone out' on it. In fact, you are in no position to call me out on anything. I don't answer to you, and I'm pretty sure don't have the answers to everything

I don't think you realize how pompous you sound.

Maybe you should be careful who you go "calling things out on."


Seriously guys, why is it so difficult to have a conversation around here?

Forget it. As with many things on this board, people love to try to prove everyone wrong, so clearly I cant post an article that I thought was interesting w/o being told 'thats wrong, it was PROVEN'.

I sometimes forget who I can and can't talk to.

Wow. That's an incredibly over the top reaction. I'll just say that when I said "call out" it was in a general sense and not you personally.

Seriously, are you okay?

Cruciferous veggies like cabbage, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower and mustard greens should be nixed because they inhibit thyroid function.
Yeah, not going to happen.
I love cabbage, Brussels sprouts, and mustard greens. It's hilarious that the article named my three favorite veggies as foods I should avoid.

For optimal weight loss, I do well with a high protein, high fat diet. But I feel the best as a vegetarian/vegan.

There are other ways to type your body and plan your diet around the type...in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TMC) and also Indian ayurveda. All interesting concepts. IDK which, if any, have validity.
NetG and scrills like this.

I am blood type A. It contradicts itself: you are calm . . . . . . since you stress easily, you should try something calming like yoga. *giggles*

I am not calm! I am spastic and impetuous and emotional.

It also recommended avoiding violent tv shows or movies. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

Also, it says to avoid fish and meat. If I don't eat fish or meat I get low-blood sugar more easily and feel weak and exhausted. It advised me to eat carbs. Yes, I will (have done so in the past) blow up like a whale! I was a vegetarian a long time ago and that was the most sickly I have ever been in my life and I ate balanced proteins and mostly organic. It just doesn't work for me.

Also, although I do love yoga, I also need a physical "cleansing" like kick-boxing, chopping firewood, or interval training to keep my stress level in check and my weight where it should be. I do yoga almost every day, but at least 3 days a week, I do other stuff too. I work better with more diversity! Me and an ax are an awesome workout

I think you have to find what works for yourself and your body. Your combination of foods and activities may not work for another single human alive. I believe it can be as individualized as your fingerprints.

ETA: I didn't read the whole thread before I responded. I merely stated why it wouldn't work for me. The most important point I tried to make is bolded.

Sometimes its nice to talk about stuff and not use it as an attempt to try and make someone else feel stupid. Its just not decent.

Every once and a while the b1tch mob starts marching in and it irritates me. I stay away from that stuff IRL. So I may be taking it out on you.

Am a type B , I had the book n followed the diet for a year I hv lost weight but it was mostly my muscles , so be careful dont follow it word by word.
I'd like to know what you think was snark. Because, seriously, all the rudeness started with your ***** comment, whoever that was directed towards.

I take everything I read w a grain of salt.

I don't usually believe in a 'one size fits all' anything. Some of these things are written for people who can't think for themselves and need it all spelled out. The only part that stuck out to me was the no meat, because in the past I've done low carb high protein and it doesn't work for me. And red meat is really bad on my stomach, so I thought, hmm, maybe I should cut out chicken and fish too?

I'm lactose intolerant so although it probably said dairy was okay, I clearly wouldn't do that part.

I am very calm (although its sometimes a relative thing) problem solver, fixer, OCD, but I am easily stressed.


I don't know who woud do everything an article suggests. I watch violent, stressful tv, and while I'm not gonna stop, I recognize that it does make me anxious.

I think, even though you probably wouldn't change your whole life, its good to have self awareness, and thats what I get out of things like this. Not to change my whole life, but maybe understand how things effect me.

And frankly I don't have patience with an inexperienced 20-something trying to act as if I don't have a clue. I can't wait for life to come kick you in the ass. (Not you).

So the complaint of *****iness and snark has nothing to do with what was posted in THIS thread?

O...kay.

hmm, I don't know. when it comes to a new diet/lifestyle change, I think it's perfectly understandable for people to want evidence. especially since much isn't provided in the linked article. and for every anecdote of someone who it worked for, I'm sure you can find one of someone it didn't work for. which is why scientific evidence is necessary. If people don't put stock in scientific evidence, that's another thing, but I don't think it's unreasonable to discuss this article by noting any discrepancies and alternative viewpoints.

eta: for the record, I thought it was an interesting article, because I've never heard of it before. I personally don't think I believe it (especially after reading the skeptic's dictionary breakdown of it), but I definitely benefited from reading a bit more about this kind of stuff. knowledge is power!
