In his bestselling book, Eat Right for Your Type, Dr. Peter J. D’ Adamo discusses the importance of eating according to your blood type. Dr. D’Adamo claims and proves that if you ate foods that are compatible with your blood type, you would experience allergy resistance and enjoy an overall good health.

Dr. D’Adamo’s claims have been questioned by many detractors for its lack of scientific evidences, although many have claimed to have improved health when they followed Dr. D’Adamo’s diet plan. I have found this study to be very interesting because personally, I am suffering from allergies which I really want to get rid of.  My doctor says that there is no way that I can ever get rid of this, but at least I am hoping that I could develop some resistance to it.  Anyways, here are some of Dr. D’Adamo’s  diet recommendations for you, according to your blood type.

    In addition to avoiding meat-based sources of protein, D’Adamo suggests people with blood type A avoid all dairy products. He notes that people with blood type A are more likely than the general population to suffer from lactose intolerance. Eggs and fish should also be avoided, as D’Adamo says these sources of protein are poorly digested in people with type A blood. Therefore, soy, tofu, legumes and nuts are regarded as the optimal sources of protein for people with type A blood.
