What luck, the same cookbook for all blood types
The Blood Type AB Diet is one of a group of diets that depend on the individual’s blood type. These 4 diets are all said to promote weight loss, eliminate toxins and fat from the organism, fight against some illnesses, and slow the aging process. Blood type AB is the rarest blood type, englobing only some 5% of the total population. Here are some of the diet principles.
Some meat is allowed, but be careful about the types and quantities that you eat. Most foods are allowed. Start the day with a glass of hot water that may contain lemon juice. This diet comes with a long list of foods to eat and foods to avoid. Even among the favored food groups such as meat and vegetables there are plenty of items to avoid. For example, stay away from pork, duck, beef, goose, chicken, and veal. Good choices include lamb, turkey, rabbit, and mutton. There is also a list of suggested supplements. Clearly you won’t be able to follow this diet without a book. Suggested activities include yoga and meditation.
These foods are part of the Blood Type AB Diet.
Advantages of the Blood Type AB Diet include improving the state of your cells and immune system. It may help fight against aging, cardio-vascular illnesses, diabetes, and some cancers. Disadvantages include the lack of fiber, vitamin B, and magnesium. You may require food supplements.
