Thanks to modern medicine we can actually follow diets that match our blood type.  I know, this is actually quite a strange phenomenon, but when thinking about it, how much sense it makes.  

Firstly, because we each have unique blood types, the wherewithal of food intake greatly determines our well-being.  Some foods can actually act as poisons.

What you can eat — and how you exercise — on this diet depends on who you are.

If you’re blood type O (for “old”, as in humanity’s oldest blood line) your digestive tract retains the memory of ancient times, says D’Adamo, so your metabolism will benefit from lean meats, poultry and fish. You’re advised to restrict grains, breads and pulses, and to enjoy vigorous exercise. 

Type A (for “agrarian”) flourishes on vegetarian diets, “the inheritance of their more settled and less warlike farmer ancestors,” says D’Adamo. The type A diet contains soya proteins, grains and organic vegetables and encourages gentle exercise. 

The nomadic blood type B has a tolerant digestive system and can enjoy low-fat dairy, meat and produce but, among other things, should avoid wheat, sweet corn and lentils, D’Adamo says. If you’re type B, it’s recommended you exercise moderately. 

The “modern” blood type AB has a sensitive digestive tract and should avoid chicken, beef and pork but enjoy seafood, tofu, dairy and most produce. The fitness regimen for ABs is calming exercises.

 Going back to the long line of the human development, and seeing how our blood type relates to certain stages of the human evolution, diet has always played a main role in moving us forward in survival.  With today’s wealth of food available it is not “One size fits all”  but finding the right diet for your own metabolism.
