Is there any truth to the diet based on blood type?
Asked by farrell_dez on Jan 08, 2009 in Nutrition

For example, O blood type should eat more protein and  AB blood type should eat more veggies.


The Blood Type Diet is outlined by Peter D’Adamo in Eat Right 4 Your Type, a diet book that has been a bestseller for over 10 years.  Mr. D'Adamo asserts that your blood type is the key to your immune system, and by eating particular foods according to your blood-type, you can lose weight and prevent diseases, such as cancer, asthma, arthritis, diabetes, and others.  But truthfully, there is no scientific evidence to back the authors claims, and the diets recommended for some blood types could produce nutritional deficiencies.  The Blood Type Diet is just another fad diet.
