Whats your Type?
And we don't mean tall, dark and handsome. Your blood type is an inherited trait that characterizes the presence or absence of certain substances known as antigens. There are eight common blood types, including O-positive, A-positive and AB-negative. If you don’t know your blood type, a simple home test can help you figure it out.
Your blood type determines who you can donate blood to - and who you can receive blood from. But it may also play a role in physical exercise, stress response, and the foods you should (and shouldn’t) be eating. This eating plan is known as the blood type diet.
Eat right for your type
The official blood type diet was created by Dr. Peter D'Adamo, after decades of clinical research. Dr. D'Adamo believes that eating for your blood type offers a personalized approach to nutrition that can benefit both mind and body.
For example, those with type O blood are said to fare better eating animal proteins and skipping out on gluten, dairy and grains, while type A individuals are better suited for a vegetarian diet. Blood type B calls for elimination of specific foods such as corn, tomatoes and peanuts.
