Blood Type Diet

In the blood type diet, foods are divided into 16 categories from meat, poultry, seafood to herbal teas. It has been advocated by Peter D'Adamo and outlined in his book Eat Right 4 Your Type. Its basic premise is that blood type is the most important factor in determining a healthy diet. The recommended diets for the four blood types are:
Blood group O, the hunter, is believed to be the earliest human blood group. These people should eat a meat-rich diet.
Blood group A, the cultivator, is believed to be a more recently evolved type dating back from the dawn of agriculture. Members of this group should eat a diet free of red meat which emphasises vegetables.
Blood group B, the nomad, is associated with a strong immune system and a flexible digestive system, and is believed to be the only blood type which can thrive on dairy products.
Blood group AB, the enigma, is believed to be the most recently evolved type. In terms of dieterary needs, it is intermediate between A and B.
