I enjoy talking about the different diets that are popular today. And I like to wrap up the blood type diet, better known as “Eat Right 4 Your Type” this week.
Listen, the idea behind this is much more complex than the time I have here. So, I also recommend you check the website dadamo.com, where Dr. Peter D’Adamo explains all you need to know to get started.
He simply spells-out how certain foods contain lectins, which are proteins that may cause inflammation.
GLUTEN may cause inflammation in Blood Types O and B. Blood Types O are therefore also more susceptible to inflammatory disorders; while B’s may deal more with Autoimmunity.
Blood Type A could get in trouble with a diet rich in BANANAS, TOMATOES, and all NIGHTSHADES. One big health risk-factor in A’s is cancer.
And Blood Type AB has characteristics of both A and B. Often low stomach acid, but still a need for good proteins. However look into smaller, more frequent meals.
Just come-in and feel free to talk about Blood Types …at the Gesundheit! Nutrition Center on North 19th Avenue.
