Blood Type Diet

Has anyone had any experience with this diet? I read this book while away on holidays and it peaked my interest.

http://www.amazon.com/Eat-Right-Your...1396780&sr=1-1

In a nut shell, the author says depending on your blood type, you are better suited to eat different thing.

Essentially,

Blood type O. Here the prescribed diet is low-carbohydrate, high in proteins (such as meat and fish), and low in dairy products. The author suggests specific foods to avoid; such as avocados, brazil nuts, and oranges. Type O should also engage in lots of exercise.

Blood Type A should avoid red meat, eat plenty of fish and vegetables, with a low dairy intake. Light exercise only.

Blood Type B should avoid chicken and bacon, eat plenty of meat and dairy, some fish, and plenty of fruit and vegetables.

Blood Type AB combines the A and B diets.

A and B contradict each other, so I'm not sure how AB diet would work. Kind of sounds bogus to me.

I have The Metabolic Typing Diet...but haven't had time to read it yet..

http://www.amazon.ca/Metabolic-Typin...1415190&sr=1-1

I think this is based on how your body digests different types of food and uses it as fuel..
So some people are carb type and others are protein type....some people are just a mixed type...

not saying this diet won't work..but if losing weight like this was that easy...then everyone would be doing it. i've never heard of someone just eating the "proper" things and having "light exercise" and lose tons of weight.

just have healthy balanced meals and a consistant workout routine for day to day. cutting out certain foods in any type of diet (atkins/beyonce diet etc etc) may have a quick fix but it acts more like a bandaid if anything.

sounds bogus to me
just from high school biology you'd know that all the typing really means is just different red blood cell protein markers and has nothing to do with your digestive enzymes or metabolism mechanism.

Just the idea of it sounds so absurd. It is a fact that everyone handles food differently - for instance my wife can get by fine eating a lot of carbs. But if I so much as look at rice, I get fat.

But I seriously doubt it has anything to do with blood types. I can't say for sure, since I have never researched this type of way of eating. It's so easily dismissable as bullshit, that I never bothered

It could easily be an "information cascade" .

Anyway, have a go at the book. You might find it interesting. Just curious, are you Blood Type O, and your wife Type B?
