Blood Type diet is made for anyone particular and uniquely. These are modern diets. If one sticks to plan for more years it is becoming a regime-not short time diet.
The blood type diet or BTD is made in 1996,by Peter J. D’Adamo, ND and after 14 years it is still number 1 on Amazon. Is it really good?
I disliked meat when I was a kid.Other kids enjoyed burgers and I ate PB and J, stir fry and whole wheat because I was vegetarian and I was special and unique because of it.
As I aged I changed philosophies and I became vegan. I started to eat only seeds, nuts, grains oils, beans and produce. The body didn’t accept mine lifestyle change. I had hand rash, hip pain, congestion, and aches in joints, also dandruff and dry skin. Eczema and pimples also made me sleep less at night.
That is how I started learning more about medicine. Two dermatologists found me dermatitis and gavesteroid creams. As I disliked that so I began to find more on this issue.
Also, candida I had in intestines and I should eat less sugars, pickled foods, yeast foods and also fermented food. Not even slight of cake.
At last I got in touch with Gina T. Ogorzaly, chiropractor and co-founder of Diamondback Wellness Center.
When I told her my blood type (right away, O positive). I got confused because she already knew what to do. She had 0-precise chart with 3 food categories:
- and also bad.
According to that I need to eat veggies, red meats mostly, to avoid the grains and wheat. The type 0 is a hunter – a meat eater.
That was a no-no situation and I started.
