Overview Proposes that a person's blood type can both influence health and reactions to foods
Publishers Description "What would you say if I told you that the secret to healthy, vigorous, and disease-free living might be as simple as knowing your blood type," ask Dr. Peter D'Adamo and Catherine Whitney, and in Eat Right 4 Your Type, they shows us the simple answer. If you've ever suspected that not everyone should eat the same thing or do the same exercise, you're right. In fact, what foods we absorb well and how our bodies handle stress differ with each blood type. Your blood type reflects your internal chemistry. It is the key that unlocks the mysteries of disease, longevity, fitness, and emotional strength. It determines your susceptibility to illness, the foods you should eat, and ways to avoid the most troubling health problems. Only recently have all the pieces of the scientific and clinical puzzle started coming together. Dr. D'Adamo has spent the past fifteen years researching the connections among blood type and exercise, food, and disease, and his research is built on thirty years of work done by his father. In Eat Right 4 Your Type he shows: which foods, spices, teas, and condiments help someone of your blood type maintain optimal health and ideal weight; which vitamins and supplements to emphasize or avoid; which medications function best in your system; whether your stress goes to your muscles or your nervous system; whether your stress is relieved better through aerobics or meditation; whether you should walk, swim or play tennis or golf as your mode of exercise; how knowing your blood type can help you avoid many common viruses and infections; how knowing your blood type can help you fight back against life-threatening diseases; how to slow down the aging process by avoiding factors specific to your blood type that cause rapid cell deterioration. Eat Right 4 Your Type provides a clear, simple life plan that anyone can follow and suggests the easiest ways to determine your blood type and diet for your blood type. Here is a breakthrough book that will change the way we eat and live.

Take this diet with a grain of salt (unless of course your blood type says you shouldn't) Feb 18, 2007
I decided to read this book not to lose weight but to see if I could figure out what my blood type was based on his generalizations about what kinds of food are good and bad for the different types and what kinds of diseases and allergies people with the different blood types usually get. I then did a home blood type test to find out my type (based on my genetics it could have been any of the eight ABO and Rhesus types) and see if indeed my results corroborated with his.
They did not. According to his results, the type I have is more likely to get sick easily but far less likely to have allergies and in fact the opposite is true for me.
While before I knew my blood type I believed that perhaps blood types may play a small role in how our bodies react to outside influences like diseases, allergens and food, I now think that the role is so small that there is hardly any reason to care about blood types outside of blood donation and transfusion. And because it's kind of cool.
