Default Blood Type Diet

What is everyone take on the blood type diet? I know from personal experience that when I don't eat the foods that are listed as no-nos according to the blood type diet I feel a whole lot better than when I don't.

It suggests for type 0s (which I am) to stay away from wheat and dairy. If I don't my body feels the effects of eating them.

Does anyone have an opinion or experience with the blood type diet they would like to share?

I don't really think much to it; mainly because they also insist that people should or should not do certain types of exercise which would mean half the people here shouldn't be doing weight lifting.

As for foods, people with all blood types can have allergies and intolerances to the same foods so that discounts their ideas of avoid this food if you happen to be in group A or B etc, since someone in the opposite group may have issues with a food they claim is fine for their diet/blood grouping.

I read the book and found the foods I had naturally gravitated toward and away from lined up with the blood-type diet recommendations...

I'm type-O... "Original" classic meat-eater, high fat, lower-carb.... working well for me

I agree with Babs above though... the exercise prescription part is BS... metabolism and body-type is very trainable...food allergies are too, but much less so...

My opinion -seeing as you asked - is that it is absolute nonsense. Admittedly, this is not based on any research into the diet, but there are huge numbers of these 'If you're X, you shouldn't eat Y' type diets and they never have any kind of credible evidence behind them.

But you may want to ignore this as I also think that the whole wheat/milk intolerance thing is, in the vast majority of cases, completely blown out of all proportion.

If you go back to milk and wheat having had a period off them, you may well feel uncomfortable as you would with any sudden influx of a foodstuff you're not used to.

By analogy, I used to 'feel better' having had my multivits, and would have sworn that they were the cause of that. I now believe that they didn't do me one damn bit of good - my body goes through very complex cycles of feeling good or worse, none of which are remotely connected with vitamin intake.

I'd agree that "always eat" and "never eat" is exaggerated.

Lactose intolerance is somewhat trainable and of course, Lactaid, etc. negates the issue while making milk nutrition accessible.

Wheat/Gluten allergies can range from mild to deadly....most people have some negative reaction but for the vast majority it is innocuous.

In life, rapid changes are rarely advisable...unless you find yourself in a burning building!

I felt similarly about vitamins, but recently went to a specialist, had my blood tested and got a focused vitamin prescription...so far, the most profound affect was from vitamin D3. I can tell almost daily if my skin and healing factor are operating properly...the change in those areas has been drastic and positive.

Many of the other effects (of the correct vitamins) are not perceptible. They are long-term benefits recognizable only at the cellular level and over many years. That said, a typical, healthy person eating a range of foods should need very minimal supplementation at most and does not need a huge amount of vitamins.

Haha. Try being A+ and being told I should be a vegetarian! Holy Moly! I'd rather die a thousand bloody deaths rather than give up dead animals!

Nope, not buying the blood type diet at all.

I do however think the gluten thing is real. I went gluten free recently because my sister was visiting and I did feel noticeably better (mood, activity level, everything) the whole time I avoided wheat.

And I drink half a gallon of milk a day, no chance I'm giving that up either.

My brother is a big believer in this! Havin the same blood type, he always says do this you shouldn't eat that, bla bla bla. Even had me read our section of the book. I'm not knocking anyone that believes in this all.
I'll die before I give up potatoes! And there's other things too.
Most people feel better when starting any diet. If you eat more fresh foods, less processed garbage, you WILL feel better. This isn't because you have a certain blood type, it's just healthy eating. There are people that can't handle certain foods or have allergies, but this is genetic, not blood related.
But whatever makes you healthy and happy!

Diets like this succeed in helping you lose weight by making you feel morally superior to everyone who isn't on them. Carry on.

Thanks for your input. I was not aware of the exercise suggestions. Everyone should exercise so I totally disagree with that aspect.
