What is the blood type diet?
Whether you’re trying to lose 20 pounds or just looking for ways to be healthier, there’s no shortage of diets to choose from. But only one looks to your blood type to determine what you should or shouldn’t eat.
The blood type diet originated from the 1996 book Eat Right for Your Type by naturopathic physician Peter J. D’Adamo. The idea behind it is that your body’s response to food is directly linked to your blood type, based on what your ancestors with the same blood type ate. Each blood type has its own guidelines about the foods that anyone with that blood type should eat and the foods they should avoid. The diet claims to help people lose weight, improve digestive health, and boost overall well-being.
