Eat Right 4 Your Type for a Healthy New Year!

Tuesday, January 1, 2013

I suggested to a friend who has been feeling lethargic of late to try eating right for his blood type. This is something I started doing a couple of years ago. Although it is hard to say if it is psychological, I always feel better when I eat what I am supposed to based on my blood type.

Better? Yes, I would feel less bloated. My nose would also stay clear instead of mucousy. The back of my throat would not itch. There is a general sense of well-being when I follow the blood type diet.

Here is a quick introduction:

There are connections among blood type, food, and disease.

Find an individualized plan that's right for your blood type.

In Eat Right 4 Your Type, see which foods, spices, teas, and condiments help someone of your blood type maintain optimal health and ideal weight; which vitamins and supplements to emphasize or avoid; which medications function best in your system; whether your stress goes to your muscles or your nervous system; whether your stress is relieved better through aerobics or meditation; whether you should walk, swim or play tennis or golf as your mode of exercise; how knowing your blood type can help you avoid many common viruses and infections; how knowing your blood type can help you fight back against life-threatening diseases; and how to slow down the aging process by avoiding factors specific to your blood type that cause rapid cell deterioration.

You could borrow the book from a public library near you if you are interested in finding out more or, if you would like to have a personal copy, consider buying a pre-owned copy from BetterWorldBooks. Price starts from US$9.98 a copy. They ship free globally.

Hi AK,

Happy New Year! Your first post of 2013 - setting a healthy trend for the year.

I am sceptical about these claims but I guess the placebo/ psychological effect cannot be discounted. The supposed effects seem similar to chinese medicine which classify food into various categories such as heaty, cooling, yin and yang balances etc.

Well ultimately a diet rich in fruits and vegetables, low salt and oil etc should be something everyone can work towards to.

Best wishes,

Hi Eugene,

Oh, I was quite sceptical too. I very much ate whatever I liked before. Ok, I still do it but less so. ;p

Indeed, I think there could be some psychological benefits to this but we should listen to our body. For what it is worth, I do feel better when I follow the blood type diet. Haha.. I guess that is what counts.

As for fruits and vegetables, not all are good for all blood types. It is quite an interesting read.

Happy New Year! :)

Hi AK,

I've read the book and found that the foods that I shld avoid according to my blood type are the ones that actually cause my eczema to flare up(its about 90% accurate for me.) My skin is a lot better when I follow the diet than when I do not.(i occasionally indulge...)So I think there is some truth to it.

That being said, the diet is torture for me as I am type A and cannot eat my favourite stuff like pork(Kuay Chap!!!) and beef and cheese(Pizza!!)...haha.

Hi Jeremy,

I know what you mean about it being a torture.

I am type B and if I were to follow the diet strictly, I should not be eating food made from wheat but I like bread, mee pok and pasta!

I should also avoid tomato but I love salsa!

I should also avoid corn but I like corn chips!

How to eat salsa without corn chips? Hahahaha... ;p
