According to previous health advisories, your blood type aids in understanding how your body reacts to food, your susceptibility to disease, and your natural reaction to stress. To help your figure out your personalized biochemistry as well as the association of your blood type to your overall health, renowned naturopathic physician Peter D’Adamo introduced a concept of the blood type diet that puts a new spin on the way people achieve a healthy lifestyle.

His research findings indicate that your blood type is a key genetic factor that influences many areas of your health and well-being. Focused in anthropology, medical history, and genetics, his studies led him to conclude that blood type "unlocks the door to the mysteries of health, disease, longevity, physical vitality, and emotional strength."

Doing so enables you to make intelligent and careful choices about your dietary, exercise, supplement, and even medical treatment plans.

With the blood type being your road map to correspond to your exact biological profile and the dynamic natural forces within your own body, D'Adamo identifies the following blood type diet as featured by WebMD.

Type O blood: A high-protein diet that is heavy on lean meat, poultry, fish, and vegetables, yet low-carb diet that has light consumption on wheat, grains, beans, pasta, cereals, rice, and other dairy products.

Type A blood: A meat-free diet based on fruits and vegetables, beans and legumes, and whole grains -- ideally, organic and fresh as people with type A blood have a sensitive immune system. They may also opt to follow a vegetarian diet but still avoid dairy products. This means that they may indulge in nuts, seeds, beans, cereals, pasta, rice, fruit and vegetables.

Type B blood: The only foods that need to be avoided are processed foods, corn, wheat, buckwheat, lentils, tomatoes, peanuts, and sesame seeds; thus, only small amounts of carb-rich foods should be eaten. D'Adamo encourages eating green vegetables, eggs, certain meats, and low-fat dairy.

Type AB blood: Foods in the "to-eat" list include tofu, seafood, dairy, and green vegetables, yet no-no to caffeine, alcohol, and smoked or cured meats as people with type AB blood tend to have low stomach acid. 

While you cannot change your blood type, you can use knowledge about its nature to implement a dietary plan biologically suited to your makeup, says Dr. D'Adamo, who supplies copious details on eating plans for all four types.

"Most of my patients experience some results [within two weeks of starting the diet plan]-increased energy, weight loss, a lessening of digestive complaints, and improvement of chronic conditions such as asthma, headaches, and heartburn."
