Naturopath Peter J D’Adamo is the inventor of the food list by blood type. He says that depending on the type of blood (A, AB, B and O) that follows the diet that he has created, he can lose weight and stay healthy. Many of us are not familiar with naturopathy. It is a natural medicine that combines homeopathy, herbal medicine, acupuncture, as well as nutrition and quality of life. The inventor has done a lot of research and written work on food depending on blood type. In 1998, his work, Eat Right4 Your Type, was published and received a good response. D’Adamo claims that the type of food we eat causes a chemical reaction with our blood type. So if we follow our blood type and eat food then our body will digest it more efficiently. The result will be weight loss, increase body strength and prevent disease.

People with type A blood will generally be more fresh in their vegetarian diet. If they eat meat, they will lose weight. To get more energy, you have to eliminate toxic foods from the food list. Many people think that removing meat from the food list may not give them energy. But if they eat soy protein, whole grains and vegetables with the exception of meat, they will be fresher.

List of people with type B blood
Foods that raise blood sugar levels, such as corn, wheat, pulses, tomatoes, peanuts, sesame seeds, and chicken, have been ruled out.

So when you start eating the right foods without this type of food, your blood sugar levels will return to normal. Naturopath D’Adamo recommends eating green leafy vegetables, eggs, some meat and low-fat milk. Although chicken is a fat-free safe meat, people of group B blood should avoid it because such human muscle cells contain a substance called agglutinating lectin. Which attacks the bloodstream and has the potential to cause a stroke and disrupt the immune system. So Naturopath D’Adamo says to eat other meats such as beef, goat, sheep, etc. instead of chicken. That's why you should eat green vegetables, eggs, wholesome meats, and low-fat milk. Toxic foods should be avoided.
