All humans have one of four blood types – A, B, AB or O. According to Naturopath Dr Peter J. D’Adamo, different blood types have different chemical reactions to the food they eat. If you follow a diet designed for your blood type, your body can digest it more efficiently, leading to weight loss and increased energy levels.

Like any diet however, it’s best to read up on it before deciding if it is for you.

According to the blood type diet, different foods are better suited for different people depending on their blood type. 

 

Type O blood

The original blood type is said to have originated with the hunter-gatherers 40,000 years ago. Thus the Type O diet emphasises a high-protein diet heavy on lean meat, poultry fish, nuts and vegetables. Avoid grains, beans and dairy, which means foods like bread and pasta that became common after the agricultural revolution.

For meat lovers, ovens like the Electrolux Inspiration Steam Combination oven offers intelligent temperature sensors that can measure the doneness of meat and ensure optimum doneness whether you choose to grill, bake, roast or steam your favourite meats.

Type A blood

The gene for blood type A emerged when humans evolved from hunter-gatherers into more settled, agrarian communities. This blood type thrives on a grains and vegetable diet. So type As should eat more fruits, vegetables, beans and legumes, preferably fresh and organic produce.

The Electrolux Nutrifresh refrigerator can be a boon for this blood type, with its nutrilight feature that enhances the vitamin and mineral content of fresh produce, keeping them market fresh for longer.

Type B blood

Blood type Bs are said to have appeared about 10,000 to 15,000 years ago, in colder, mountainous areas like the Himalayan mountain ranges. Said to be the “nomad” blood type, type B’s should consume more green vegetables, eggs, certain meats like lamb and venison, as well as low-fat dairy. Corn, wheat, buckwheat, lentils, tomatoes, peanuts, sesame seeds and chicken should be avoided.

Type AB blood

Blood type ABs are the most recent in terms of evolution, having emerged only about 1,000 years ago as society transitioned into more modern lifestyles. A blend of both type A and B, they make up only two to five percent of the human population. Type AB diets tend to focus on tofu, seafood, dairy and green vegetables. As this blood type tends to have low stomach acid, caffeine, alcohol, smoked and cured meats should be avoided.
