    Default Blood type diets

    I had the book Eat Right For Your Type, and recently started looking through it again. It's pretty interesting, but I'm not sure how much of it is actually BS or not.

    For instance, it states that O blood types do better on caveman hunter gatherer type diets and intense exercise, seeing as this was the first blood type humanity originally started out with. Apparently O types have more acidic digestive systems because of the amount of red meat that they consumed. Often times O types will be lactose intolerant or have allergies to gluten because their bodies just can't process those types of foods. It says that as our species started moving on from being hunter gatherers to relying more so on agriculture, the A blood types then evolved and were able to better process that type of vegetarian diet. They have a harder time being able to digest red meat. Apparently B types came from the nomads in the Himalayas where people started domesticating animals and relying on meat and dairy, therefor, B types are one of the only types who can better process dairy. AB types are a variation of both.

    What do you all think? Anyone have any experience with these types of diets? Do you think this has some logical backing to it, or is it total bullshit?

    Just for the fun of it I put up a poll.

    My brother-in-law's father is a doctor and the hospital administrator for one of the largest hospitals in the US and he is an advocate of blood type diets, claiming that they do have scientific basis.
    But, for a certainty, back then,
    We loved so many, yet hated so much,
    We hurt others and were hurt ourselves...

    Yet even then, we ran like the wind,
    Whilst our laughter echoed,
    Under cerulean skies...

    I am a long time vegetarian and I think I'm type A. Never had any major health problems. Of course, I did eat meat for the first 13 years of my life and didn't have any health problems then either. So therefore, I leave you with no evidence.....

    But the topic is interesting.

    I fart less eating meat than any other food. But intense excercise is harder for me than a steady continous excercise of medium exertion. I think it correlates to a much higher count of slow-twitch reflex fibers than fast-twitch fibers.
    I would say that ethically you are still supposed to act as if you have unilateral responsibility; but simultaneously you have to be able to see the other as a fully autonomous, free, aware person.

    Medicalizing social problems has the additional benefit of rendering society not responsible for those social ills. If itís a disease, itís nobodyís fault. Yay empiricism.

    Yar, it does. I'm the opposite w/ more fast-twitchers.

    My blood type is A+. I feel best eating lots of fruits and veggies, but thought that was pretty universal. I definitely like red meat, but don't want to eat it everyday. I prefer variety. Beef, poultry, fish - all good, just not one thing every single day. Breads are okay in smaller amounts, and for quick energy, but too much and I feel sluggish.

    I don't think there's anything to it. For example, the native american Blackfoot tribe is over 80% type A, and they had a hunter-gatherer lifestyle.

    What does the blood type have to do with the digestive system?

    "Overall, people of African ancestry tend to carry the O gene more frequently than people of Caucasian and Asian ancestry" - I think this is Factually False. Im going to look it up now, but i believe B type blood is more dominant in Africa than elsewhere in the world.

    Also, there was totally some super racism snuck into that quote Star.

    I was wrong. Africa had it spread out pretty equally. Asia had the highest concentration of B, and European descent the highest concentration of A. Native Americans(including native southern american peoples such as Mayans) had a startling prevalency of O

    It seems blood type is not proven to be causal to dietary differences, but perhaps regional difference, genetic predisposition could influence dietary differences allergies and such. Not sure there is a causal link between the phenomena but they could be symptomatic of a root basis or a number of traits.

    Said in some thread before - I usually omit dairy products and did, mostly meat and veggies here and there for me. Oh, I'm not lactose intolerant.

    O probably wasn't the first blood type, which makes that whole argument invalid. I mean, "this is first so therefore they're better at eating the stuff we used to eat even though we all used to eat it and blood has everything to do with what your body likes" ????

    Doesn't make any sense.. That being said, blood types are seen in Japan in the same light as astrology signs. Certain personality traits are predicted by them, and with that compatibility, health, etc.

    Anyway, I'm B and I eat what I want, when I want.

    I think they're absurd. It's not scientific.

    I'm AB+, which is a new blood type, which should mean that I can live on a diet of pop tarts and tang.

    Everytime i use it, I drop 15 to 20 pounds in a few weeks, I just cannot stay on it. I am blood type O+.


    I am genotype 4, explorer on Dadamo's more advanced genotype diet. GT4s are strongly associated with Ne users.

    I think the research is legit. But legit like socionics, in that it works but American science farts on it. Do not listen to the naysayers. It works!
