What luck, the same cookbook for all blood types
The Blood Type B 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 B, in which B stands for barbarian, probably started in the Himalayas. Most people with this blood type are located in that general area. Here are some of the diet principles.
You may eat a wide variety of food. Try to avoid nuts and grains. Eat pasta, corn, and buckwheat in moderation. Make sure to eat at least one fruit a day. This diet comes with a long list of foods to eat and foods to avoid. Even among the favored food groups such as fish and vegetables there are plenty of items to avoid. For example, stay away from crustaceans, shellfish, anchovies, eel, bass, barracuda, smoked salmon, and frogs. Good choices include fatty fish and white fish. You should probably take magnesium supplements. Clearly you won’t be able to follow this diet without a book. Three times a week perform strenuous exercise, which increases your cardio-vascular capabilities. Relax with meditation, yoga, or tai chi twice a week.
These foods are part of the Blood Type B Diet.
