You may not know this yet, but each blood type has a different diet that should be followed in order to give your body the necessary amounts of vitamins, nutrients and proteins. Today, we’re going to present you all four blood types together with their associated diets.
The idea of eating according to your blood type came from a naturopathic doctor named Peter D’Adamo. He wrote a book about how to eat properly for your blood type, named “Eat Right For Your Type: The Individualized Diet Solution to Staying Healthy, Living Longer & Achieving Your Ideal Weight”. In this book, he explains how to have a balanced diet and how our diet should be influenced by our blood type.
Inside the pages of the book, the doctor explains why it is so important to eat according to our blood type in order to keep ourselves healthy and away from diseases. If you eat something that it is not good for your blood type, you will see the echo in your health, in the future. Even the workouts that we choose to make have an influence on our blood type.
