The Blood Type Diet Chart

According to Dr. Peter DÁdamo, author of Eat Right For Your Type, a chemical reaction occurs between your blood and the foods you eat. This reaction is part of your genetic inheritance. This reaction is caused by a factor called Lectins. Lectins, abundant and diverse proteins found in foods, have agglutinating properties that affect your blood. So when you eat a food containing protein lectins that are incompatible with your blood type antigen, the lectins target an organ or bodily system and begin to agglutinate blood cells in that area.

Fortunately, most lectins found in the diet are not quite so life threatening, although they can cause a variety of other problems, especially if they are specific to a particular blood type. For the most part your immune systems protect you from lectins. Ninety-five percent of the lectins you absorb from your typical diets are sloughed off by the body. But at least five percent of the lectins you eat are filtered into the bloodstream and different reactions in different organs.

Your blood type diet is the restoration of your natural genetic rhythm. Your blood type diet works because you are able to follow a clear, logical, scientifically researched plan based on your cellular profile. Each food groups are divided into three categories: Highly beneficial (food that acts like Medicine), Foods allowed (food that are no harm to the blood type) and Foods not allowed (food that acts like a Poison)

 Blood Type Diet – Type O Chart

Type Os thrive on intense physical exercise and animal protein. Unlike the other blood types, Type Os muscle tissue should be slightly on the acid side. Type Os can efficiently digest and metabolize meat because they tend to have high stomach-acid content. The success of the Type O Diet depends on the use of lean, chemical-free meats, poultry, and fish. Type Os don’t find dairy products and grains quite as user friendly as do most of the other blood types.

The initial weight loss on the Type O Diet is by restricting consumption of grains, breads, legumes, and beans. The leading factor in weight gain for Type Os is the gluten found in wheat germ and whole wheat products, which interferes with insulin efficiency and slow down metabolic rate. Another factor that contribute to weight gain is certain beans and legumes (lentils and kidney beans) contain lectins that deposit in the muscle tissues making them less “charged” for physical activity. The third factor in Type O weight gain is that Type Os have a tendency to have low levels of thyroid hormone or unstable thyroid functions, which also cause metabolic problems. Therefore it is good to avoid food that inhibits thyroid hormone (cabbage, brussels sprouts, cauliflower, mustard green) but increase hormone production (kelp, seafood, iodized salt).

Several classes of vegetables can cause big problems for Type Os, such as the Brassica family (cabbage, cauliflower, etc.) can inhibit the thyroid function. Eat more vegetables that are high in vitamin K, which helps the clotting factor which is weak in Type Os. The nightshade vegetables can cause lectin deposit in the tissue surrounding the joints.

Because of the high acidity stomach, Type Os should eat fruits of alkaline nature such as berries and plums..

Type Os should severely restrict the use of dairy products. Their system is not designed for the proper metabolism. If you are a Type O of African ancestry, you should eliminate dairy foods and eggs altogether.

Characteristics of Type O – Best on High Protein Diet

  1. Thrive on intense physical exercise and animal proteins
  2. Do not do well with dairy and grain products
  3. Hardy digestive tract
  4. The leading factor in weight gain for Type Os is the gluten found in wheat germ and whole wheat products.
  5. Type O have a tendency to have low levels of thyroid hormone and unstable thyroid functions, which cause metabolic problems and weight gain.
  6. Type O have high stomach-acid content, can digest meat easily.

Protein

The more stressful your job or demanding your exercise program, the higher the grade of protein you should eat.

Type Os can efficiently digest and metabolize meats.

Most Beneficial: Beef, lamb, mutton, veal, venison.

Not Allowed: Bacon, Ham, Goose, Pork.

Cold-water fish are excellent for Type Os. Many seafoods are also excellent sources of iodine, which regulates the thyroid function.

Most Beneficial: Cod, herring, mackerel.

 These vegetables help blood clot, Type Os lack several clotting fractors and need vitamin K to assist in the process: Kale, collard greens, romaine lettuce, broccoli, spinach.

 These vegetables irritate the digestive tract and the high mold count can aggravate Type O hypersensitivity problems: Alfalfa sprouts, shiitake mushrooms, fermented olives.

 These vegetables can cause arthritic conditions in Type Os: Nightshades: eggplant, potatoes.

This vegetable affect the production of insulin, often lead to obesity and diabetes for the Type Os: Corn.

Most Beneficial: Artichoke, chicory, dandelion, garlic, horseradish, kale, leek, okra, onions, parsley, parsnips, red peppers, sweet potatoes, pumpkin, seaweed, turnips.

Not Allowed: Avocado

Fruits

Dark red, blue and purple fruits tend to cause an alkaline reaction the digestive tract, and therefore balance the high acidity of the Type Os digestive tract to reduce ulcers and irritations of the stomach lining.

Most Beneficial: Plums, prunes, figs.

These fruits contain high mold counts which can aggravate Type Os hypersensitivity problems (allergies): Melons, cantaloupe, honeydew

These fruits are high in acid content which may irritate the acidic stomach of Type Os:

Allowed: Grapefruit, most berries.

Blood Type Diet – Type A

Type As flourish on vegetarian diets Type As are predisposed to heart disease, cancer, and diabetes. It is particularly important for sensitive Type As to get their foods in as natural a state as possible: fresh, pure, and organic. When you get on the Type A Diet, you will naturally be thinner. If you are accustomed to eating meat, you’ll lose weight rather rapidly in the beginning as you eliminate the toxic foods from your diet. And when you follow the Type diet, you can supercharge your immune system and potentially short-circuit the development of life-threatening diseases.

When Type As eat meat, they experience sluggishness. Type As have low stomach-acid content, therefore they have a hard time digesting meat. Since Type As eat very little animal protein, nuts and seeds supply an important protein component. Type As also thrive on the vegetable proteins found in beans and legumes, except those mentioned for the “Avoid” list. These beans can cause a decrease in insulin production, which may cause obesity and diabetes. Tofu should be a staple in the Type A Diet.

Dairy foods are also poorly digested by Type As, and can cause metabolic slowdown. Type As can tolerate small amounts of fermented dairy products such as yogurt, kefir, nonfat sour cream, and cultured dairy products.

Vegetables are vital to the Type A Diet, providing minerals, enzymes and antioxidants. Type A are very sensitive to the lectins in potatoes, sweet potatoes, yams, cabbage, tomatoes and peppers. They aggravate the delicate stomach of Type A. Type A should eat more fruits that are alkaline, avoid mangoes, papaya and oranges for they are not good for your digestive tract.

Fruits

Most fruits are allowed for Type As, although try to emphasize more alkaline fruits can help to balance the grains that are acid forming in Type As muscle tissues.

Most Beneficial:  Berries (blackberries, blueberries, boysenberries, cranberries), plums, prunes, figs.

High mold counts of these fruits make it hard for Type As to digest: Melons, cantaloupe, honeydew.

Type As don’t do well on these fruits: Mangoes, papaya, bananas, coconuts.

These beverages help Type As to increase their stomach-acid secretions: Ginger, slippery elm, coffee (1 cup / day).

These don’t suit the digestive system of Type As, nor do they support the immune system: Beer, distilled liquor, seltzer water, soda, black tea.

Blood Type Diet – Type B

The sturdy and alert Type Bs are usually able to resist many of the most severe diseases common to modern life, such as heart disease and cancer. In fact, a Type B who carefully follows the recommended diet can often bypass severe disease and live a long and healthy life. Type Bs are more prone to immune-system disorders such as multiple sclerosis, lupus, and chronic fatigue syndrome.

The Type B Diet is balance and wholesome, including a wide variety of foods.

For Type Bs, the biggest factors in weight gain are corn, buckwheat, lentils, peanuts and sesame seeds. These foods have different lectin that affect the efficiency of the metabolic process, resulting in fatigue, fluid retention, and hypoglycemia. The gluten lectin in wheat germ and whole wheat products also adds to the problems cause by other metabolism-slowing foods.

It is important to leave off chicken for Type Bs. Chicken contains a Blood Type B agglutinating lectin in its muscle tissue, which attack the bloodstream and potentially lead to strokes and immune disorders. Type Bs thrive on deep-ocean fish, but should avoid all shellfish. The shellfish contain lectins that are disruptive to the Type B system.

Type B is the only blood type that can fully enjoy a variety of dairy foods. Most nuts and seeds (especially peanuts, sesame seeds and sunflower seeds) are not advised for Type Bs, they contain lectins that interfere with Type B insulin production.

Wheat is not tolerated well by most Type Bs. They contain a lectin that reuce insulin efficiency and failure to stimulate fat “burning”. Rye contains a lectin that settles in the vascular system, causing blood disorders and potentially strokes. Corn and buckwheat are major factors in Type B weight gain, they contribute to a sluggish metabolism, insulin irregularity, fluid retention, and fatigue.

Eliminate tomatoes completely from Type B diet. It has lectins that irritate the stomach lining. Fruits and vegetables are generally well tolerated and should be taken generously.

Characteristics of Type B – Best on Balanced Omnivores Diet

Meat and Poultry

These meats contains a Type B blood agglutinating lectin: Chicken, cornish hens, duck, goose, partridge, quail, pork.

These meats help to boost the immune system: Lamb, mutton, venison, rabbit.

Give up chicken, but use these meats instead: Beef, pheasant, turkey, veal.

Seafood

Deep-ocean fish and white fish are great for Type Bs.

Most Beneficial: Cod, salmon, flounder, halibut, sole, trout.

These seafood are poorly digested by Type Bs. They are disruptive to the Type B system: All shellfish (crab, shrimp, lobster, mussels, oysters, crayfish, clam, etc), anchovy, barracuda, beluga, eel, frog, lox, octopus, sea bass, snail, striped bass, turtle, yellowtail.

Dairy

Type B is the only blood type that can fully enjoy a variety of dairy foods. That’s because the primary sugar in the Type B antigen is D-galactosamine, the very same sugar present in milk.

Most Beneficial: Cottage cheese, Farmer, Feta, Goat cheese and milk, Kefir, Mozzarella, Ricotta, Milk, Yogurt.

Blood Type Diet – Type AB

Multiple antigens make Type ABs sometimes A-like with weak stomach acid, and sometimes B-like with genetically programmed for the consumption of meats. Type AB do best when their muscle tissues are slightly alkaline. Type ABs can’t metabolize meat efficiently because of low stomach acid, so it is important to watch the portion size and frequency. Chicken has lectin that irritates the blood and digestive tracts of Type ABs also. Tofu is a good protein supplements for Type ABs. Nuts, seeds, beans and legumes present a mixed picture for Type ABs. Eat nuts and seeds in small amounts and with caution.

Type ABs can tolerate dairy foods fairly well. But watch out for excessive mucus production.

Generally Type ABs do well on grains, even wheat, but keep in mind that the inner kernel of the wheat grain is highly acid forming in the muscle for Type ABs. Type AB benefits from a diet rich in rice rather than pasta.

Type ABs has a weaker immune system, so you will benefit from the vegetables, which are high in phytocheicals and the more alkaline fruits, which can help to balance the grains that are acid forming in the muscle tissues. Tomatoes do not impose any ill effects on Type ABs.

Type AB should begin each day by drinking a glass of warm water with the freshly squeezed juice of half a lemon to cleanse the system of mucus accumulated while sleeping.

Characteristics of Type AB – Best on Mixed Diet in Moderation

Meat and Poultry

Type AB do not produce enough stomach acid to effectively digest too much animal protein. So the key is portion size and frequency.

Most Beneficial: Lamb, mutton, rabbit, turkey.

Not Allowed: Beef, chicken, cornish hens, duck, goose, pork, partridge, veal, venison, quail.

Cured meats can cause stomach cancer Type ABs with low levels of stomach acid.

Most Beneficial: Beans (navy, pinto, red, soy).

Not Allowed: Beans (aduke, azuki, black, fava, garbanzo) black-eyed peas.

Grains

The inner kernel of the wheat grain is highly acid forming for Type AB. Wheat is not adviced if Type AB is trying to lose weight. The inner kernel of wheat grain is alkaline in Type Os and Bs, it becomes acidic in Type As and AB.

Most Beneficial: Millet, Oat bran, Oatmeal, Rice Bran, Puffed rice, Rye, Speltand sprouted wheat and any products such as flour, bread and noodles made with these grain products.

Not Allowed: Buckwheat, corn (any products such as flour, bread and noodles made with these ), kamut, kasha, soba noodles, artichoke pasta.

Type AB benefits from a diet rich in rice rather than pasta.

Most Beneficial: All kinds of rice and any products such as flour, bread and noodles made with these.

Vegetables
