The Blood Type Diet of the dissociated diets. It allows you to lose weight by taking your blood group into account to personalize your diet.
What is a Blood Type Diet?
The blood type diet was developed by an American naturopath, James d’Adamo. He based his diet on the difference in food assimilation according to a person’s blood group. According to this doctor, since not all blood groups appeared on Earth at the same time, each group would be adapted to a specific type of food that was specific to the period of its appearance. Some foods that are incompatible with one’s blood group would be the cause of weight gain and various health problems.
The blood group diet offers 4 personalized diets:
- blood group A: vegetarian diet (fruits, vegetables, cereals) ;
- blood group B: balanced diet (dairy products, eggs, meat – except chicken, vegetables, fruit, cereals) ;
- blood group AB: a varied diet allowing foods of blood group A and B ;
- blood group O: protein-rich diet (meat, fruit, vegetables).
Please note: all these diets require constant sporting activity.
