Your blood type has an enormous effect on your body’s physiology. Different blood types handle nutrients in food in very different ways. Those with Type A blood often have greater difficulty digesting meat. When meat makes up a large part of the diet the body is put under more significant stress. To avoid this, a vegetarian diet can be greatly beneficial if you have Type A blood.
However, a proper vegetarian diet with the optimal spread of nutrients, minerals, and proteins can be tricky. Knowing which foods to avoid and which are the most beneficial is key to getting started on a diet most suited to your physiology. The chart below outlines many key foods that are most beneficial, some that are reasonably well tolerated, and those that should be completely avoided.
Those with Type AB blood have a unique physiology that inherits characteristics of both Type A blood and Type B blood physiologies. This means they face some particular challenges in taking proper care of their bodies and eating right. While those with Type A blood generally do better without meat, and those with Type B blood are encouraged to include meat in their diet, those with Type AB blood are caught somewhere in between.
If you have Type AB blood, one of the guiding principles of your diet should be moderation. Meat is necessary but your digestion will not be able to handle too much. Many grains provide needed energy and nutrients but consuming too much will imbalance your body’s pH. It is also important to stay away from foods that are incompatible or harmful to Type AB blood physiology. Below is a chart that will help you make the right choices for a proper Type AB blood type diet.
Those with Type B blood often have a hearty constitution and have an advantage in fighting against some common debilitating conditions such as heart disease or cancer. On the other hand, they tend to have a greater susceptibility to immune system disorders.
In order to care for this kind of physiology, the body needs a comprehensive and balanced nutrition that nourishes all of the body’s systems and promotes a healthy homeostasis. An optimal diet to achieve this will contain both animal and plant-based foods, but some specific foods should not be consumed, such as chicken or peanuts. To figure out which foods to include in your diet refer to the chart below.
Type O thrives on intense physical exercise and animal proteins, does not do well with dairy and grain products, have a hardy digestive tract. The leading factor in weight gain for Type O is the gluten found in wheat germ and whole wheat products. Type O has a tendency to have low levels of thyroid hormone and unstable thyroid functions, which cause metabolic problems and weight gain. Type O has high stomach-acid content, and can digest meat easily.
