For those of you who have doubts about whether blood type should really be a reason for eating a certain way, I feel you. If you do, I strongly recommend that you take a good look at a few of the online breakdowns of the Blood Type diets online (likely very brief, doesn't include all the info of the book though) & see if: 1) some of the foods you favor are amongst the "Beneficial", & 2) while other people go crazy for a type of food (eg: seafood, mushrooms, pickles, etc.. anything!) are what you're not quite a fan of (or hate).
After I checked this out was when lots of things suddenly started to make sense. I am Type A blood. This may sound a bit weird, but I tend to enjoy my foods a little blandly (oatmeal w/ nothing to flavor, black iced/hot coffee w/o cream or sugar, etc) Lots of the time I will eat something without condiments or I ask for my salad w/ no dressing b/c dressing is just gross to me). This is in part, due to the way I grew up but also is mainly how...
This is a good little guide, and the blood-type theory is as good as ever. However, when was this last updated? Soy is no longer the go-to protein it used to be, so as a type A I really can't rely on all those soy recommendations for protein. I'd like to know if it's been updated for new dietary and food knowledge, and if not, when will it be??
Apart from this lack of updates -- which really do matter -- I like the book very much for the handy guides, which can easily be carried on shopping trips or even elsewhere
This book is a super convenient guide for deciding what food is best for us: e.g. mangos vs grapefruit. Its thesis is the our blood type determines our best diet choices. (for type A's like me it's grapefruit; type O positives maybe should eat mangos instead). All food types; e.g., fruit, vegies, fish, etc, have lists of specific foods that are 1) good, 2) neutral , 3) bad. If you like easy, presumably expert advice and are gullible, like me, this book is for you. I've been following its recommendations at about 80 percent for about 10 years. Just today, I had a blood analysis that the analyst said was a normal result for a 30-year old. I'm much older, so I give the book 5 stars.
