I gave this a 4 because it fits the book title, and it's not fair to give it a 3 when I did not read the other blood types all the way through. I'm sure they're just fine. My type O diet is interesting. So, I need to eat lean red meat and anything else I can hunt down and kill, because it's the primitive homo sapiens blood type. Great. However I am also a cancer survivor who gave up red meat. And what meat recommended!

However I am also a cancer survivor who gave up red meat. And what meat recommended! Lamb, venison, liver, veal, heart, mutton, buffalo - all stuff I wouldn't have put down my neck when I did eat meat. Rabbits? Baby calves and baby sheep? I'm good on the no dairy, but have you ever seen kelp in the produce aisle? If I need kelp I can roll about 22 miles away/44 round trip and go to Whole Foods or Trader Joe's, but my carbon footprint would get a bunion. I glanced at the other types. How come mine is the most expensive and exotic? Primitive diet. Not sure there's any meat around here the owners would be happy to have me wrestle to the ground and butcher. And it would probably wreck my pedicure. I'm also over 60. My blood type O requires high-intensity physical activity (the equivalent of running down that baby buffalo, I guess). I can choose between aerobics 3-4X a week for an hour each, stair climbing (same), martial arts, calisthenics, roller skating, weight training. The author offers the heart rate mathematics. I can almost do the math, but I can't do the time. So as Captain Barbossa says, they're more guidelines. Type Os were the epitome of focus, drive, and self-preservation; hardy and strong. And then, as if all this wasn't painful enough, the example of a fine type O is Ronald Reagan. If I see that name in any other context any time soon, I'm going to go primitive, all right, providing Cro-Magnon woman had a rich profane vocabulary in her fur backpack. ...more

The book maintain "O" blood types become healthier on a high protein, low carb but makes no mention of how detrimental animal fats are to heart health and blood pressure as well as colon health. Additionally, I know O blood types who cannot digest red meat and become ill. Since I'm allergic to dairy, all but one of the four diets apply to me, A, and this is not my blood type. It was an interesting read but the science and practice is faulty. Eat a well-balanced, healthy diet, get plenty of rest and exercise, laugh and love a lot. This is the key to a long and healthy life. ...more

This book was amazing for me as it replicated the results of my RAST blood test for food allergy. For instance oranges were killing me and Dr. D'Adamo says that Blood Type O should not eat oranges. That is just one example. I am allergic to wheat too but addicted to it. It contains something that is a pain killer and I forget at the moment what it is but it also causes arthritis as in Rheumatoid Arthritis. Wheat is super bad for me but when I am off it then I dream about it and crave it. But I This book was amazing for me as it replicated the results of my RAST blood test for food allergy.

Wheat is super bad for me but when I am off it then I dream about it and crave it. But I keep trying. In fact most all grains are very bad for me and there are many veggies that I can't eat. My allergist told me never to eat tomatoes. Most people should not eat tomatoes as they contain something that causes red blood cells to agglutinate. You don't want your red blood cells sticking together as this can cause a stroke.

He says that I am a meat eater and he is right. I do try to cut back on the red meat as my iron level is very high but it is an intense craving also. I often eat a hamburger with no bun. It tastes so much better without the bun!

Right now I am trying to do the KETO diet and there is nothing about it in this book but the ideas are similar. If you feel bad I recommend reading this book and giving it a try. I refer to it often. ...more

This book has changed my life. As a way to try to drop pounds, I'm implementing its strategy and giving up many foods I love that inhibit weight loss for type B blood type like me: corn, chicken, tomatoes, lobster, shrimp, clams, crab and anything with wheat in it.

The book's premise is that, whatever your blood type, there are certain foods that are highly beneficial in digestion, some that are neutral and others that are toxic. I'm left with most fruits, vegetables, white fish and dairy products as good for me. Two weeks into the plan, I'm feeling good.

The only problem with the book is that many of the foods that are good for people (for instance in my case lamb, rabbit, venison, mackerel, sturgeon) aren't exactly stocked in the grocery cases). Also, even health food stores don't carry many of the recommended beneficial cereals, breads, grains, pasta and spices. ...more

I don't usually like reading fad diet books but this one is totally unique. It lists foods that react badly in your system depending on what blood type you have. Seeing that I suffer from indigestion regularly I thought I'd have a look. Apparantly some of the foods that I eat nearly everyday are ones that I should avoid so I'm a bit dissapointed but hopefull. I will definately give it a go as I eat very healthily but still feel slugish and bloated sometimes.

I will definately give it a go as I eat very healthily but still feel slugish and bloated sometimes. The reason why I gave it five stars is that when at the back it listed all the ailments that certain blood types are more suseptible to, according to me they are all correct. That can't just be a coincidence as it applies to my sister too as she has a different blood type. Good food for thought. ...more

I understand what the author is saying but, for me, this just didn't ring true. The foods that are supposed to be the very worst for my blood type are some of my favorites and have never given me a lick of trouble.

Or it might be that I am on the cusp of becoming fully vegetarian that doesn't have my mind open to this.

Wow! I believe this makes sense, but I think it would be very hard to stick to. I am O+ (the meat eater blood type) and I have been a vegetarian for almost 25 years! But I have also suffered from migraines for about 25 years(which also correlates with hormones changes) but still, it really makes me wonder? I may just have to go eat some steak....GROSS!

To be brief, D'Adamo's anthropological reasoning is not backed scientifically. Anyone who has knowledge of anthropology or biochemistry knows the O blood type is not the oldest. Further, he doesn't necessarily cite information directly. He often uses vague terminology such as "many studies suggest" or something of that sort. With the lack of scientific support, I had trouble reading this. I only rate this a 3, because it seems to have worked for me. I followed the O blood type.

With the lack of scientific support, I had trouble reading this. I only rate this a 3, because it seems to have worked for me. I followed the O blood type. I know I struggle with breaking down: wheat, starches, and dairy products, so of course the recommendations to remove those worked for me. And removing those will help a vast amount of people lose weight. It's not revolutionary, you will feel better removing many processed foods from a diet. You will also lose weight removing excessive sugars and carbs. People who struggle with digestive problems will likely feel significantly better as well on the O diet. On a personal note, I am so hungry every day! I also don't crave red meat often so eating it as much as my naturopathic doctor recommended is tough. I know we shouldn't find pleasure from food which is why many of us struggle with weight issues. But eating in this rather extreme fashion is difficult! I'm in my early twenties, and although I feel better, I cannot see myself eating this way for the rest of my life. I'm too hungry and can't even eat out without a dozen modifications. ...more

Super interesting theory. Humans started off with O blood type and were meat eating/hunting and foraging, then moved north from Africa and started farming to birth A blood type, agrarian. A type is more vegetarian and fit for more social structure. Then B blood type came about after and moved out east, India and such. Then AB blood type is the most recent. He did a lot of studies with blood and interactions with food compounds and based a lot off that. I can't remember how much was actual human Super interesting theory.

He did a lot of studies with blood and interactions with food compounds and based a lot off that. I can't remember how much was actual human applied, which is more important to me, but also hard to account for ALL the factors that go into assimilation of food. So, supposedly, O type is more meat eating, A type is generally vegetarian, and B type is the only one that handles dairy that well. AB type obviously has a mix. He really breaks it down to every food, which is pretty intense to narrow that down to me. I think it's hard though, because I think some is genetic/race, some could be blood type, some is environmental, some is locality, and some could just be straight up human adaptability, which is supposedly the cause of the blood type shifts to start with. Interestingly, a lot of the guidelines for A blood type (myself) were mostly right on with what my diet and likes/dislikes already were. ...more

This theory was overthrown quite some time ago.. plus the research I made myself also proves it's wrong. Like the "fact" that supposedly all B type people tolerate lactose. I for one seem to have no problem with it, but my nephew can barely eat a a chocolate bar. The only reason I won't give this 1 star is because non of those diets will harm You.

All in all,
Wouldn't THAT be convinient - to have a list of foods that are genetically good/bad specifically for You. I'm sorry to say, but Bollocks! No such list can be made at that time.

Rated it five because it somehow helped me... I don’t know for others but most of the things explained made sense to me... like for example, there are food that I naturally hated eating (way before I even found and read this book) only because every time I eat it, I notice that it upsets my stomach,make me feel extremely bloated or sluggish etc.. so I avoid them as much as possible. Same thing with food that are a favourite of mine, not sure why they’re my favourite but all of it are listed on Rated it five because it somehow helped me...

I have been reading bits and pieces of this book because it was recommended, many of the foods discouraged for my blood type are foods that I already knew bothered me, and I had already tried another diet which helped me lose weight but didn't help lower cholesterol. I thought maybe this diet would help with that. However, I never bought the history of the blood types as explained in the book, and I have finally had time to research the whole lectin idea, that certain foods caused cell clumping I have been reading bits and pieces of this book because it was recommended, many of the foods discouraged for my blood type are foods that I already knew bothered me, and I had already tried another diet which helped me lose weight but didn't help lower cholesterol. I thought maybe this diet would help with that. However, I never bought the history of the blood types as explained in the book, and I have finally had time to research the whole lectin idea, that certain foods caused cell clumping in people based on their blood types. When I got to this section of the book, it really bothered me that the author reported that the general public would not be able replicate his seemly simple tests on food lectins with blood or be able to accurately read the results of such tests if they tried. That seems pretty fishy to me. Why could Mr. D'Adamo see something, but no one else would be able to see it properly? I've been reading as many articles as I could find about this, and it seems like no other dietitians or scientists have been able to replicate his research either. So I am going to wrap up reading the book. I give it 3 stars as I haven't read the whole book nor even tried the diet so it doesn't seem fair to rate it too low. I take from it encouragement to eat a more varied diet as following my recommended food list to some degree has gotten me to eat some foods that I don't often eat. ...more

Great book that outlines various examples of blood type diets as well as different behavioural patterns of those who have specific blood types. It could do with more blood type examples but it is only an information book rather than a list of everything you may want to know about your specific blood type but regardless very informative and interesting to read.

The book itself wasn't bad. Well written, I knew what his side of the theory was and he used science that made since. I, however, did not think his theory, when placed into practice works. I think that if anybody cuts carbs and sugar from their diet they will lose weight. It has nothing to do with your blood type.

Interesting read. I have read a number of diet books and haven't read anything that had to deal with my blood type. I gave it a whirl and will say that I feel so much better and have lost weight while eating according to my recommended eating list. I think that the book is well written and well researched.
