What luck, the same cookbook for all blood types
The Blood Type O 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 O, in which O stands for origin, is the most common one. These people tend to move a lot and are meat eaters. They should be physically active and avoid grains, dairy products, and legumes, food that makes them gain weight. Here are some of the diet principles.
Blood Type O dieters should eat small quantities of lean meat. In general, red meat, seafood, liver, laminar (an algae), and vegetables such as spinach help them lose weight. Nuts and grains may be avoided for rapid weight loss. Whole wheat is a problem food. 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 cabbage, potatoes, corn, black olives, eggplant, avocados, and regular and shiitake mushrooms. Good choices include leafy green vegetables, garlic, beets, turnips, onions, sweet potatoes, parsnips, red peppers, leeks, dandelions, horseradish, and Jerusalem artichokes. You should probably take vitamin B, calcium, and small quantities of iodine supplements. Clearly you won’t be able to follow this diet without a book. Three times a week perform cardiovascular exercise such as walking, bicycling, or swimming.
These foods are part of the Blood Type O Diet.
Advantages of the Blood Type O Diet include improving the state of your cells and immune system. Its foods are varied and healthy. Disadvantages include the need for supplements and the lack of fiber.
