Blood Type Diet

Blood Type Diet: Main Image

Nonfood Factors

In addition to eating specific foods based on your blood type, this diet recommends that you do the same kind of exercise that people were doing when the blood types emerged. Type O (hunters) should do vigorous aerobic exercises like running and cycling. Type A (settled farmers) should do calming exercises like yoga and golf.

Is This Diet Vegetarian-Friendly?

Depends. If you have type A blood you’re in luck: you should be eating a vegetarian diet. If you have type O blood this program recommends eating a diet rich in meat.

Eating Out

What you choose to eat in a restaurant will depend on your blood type. One common factor is avoiding wheat, so send back the bread basket, choose corn tortillas, and try Chinese, Thai, and Indian restaurants where other grains are highlighted.
