Blood Type AB Diet & Food List

Dear Blood Type AB web-surfer,

I have been a long-time fan of making smoothies and juices in the morning.  They taste great, are easy to make, and get me out the door and off to work in no-time flat.

I’m also an avid follower of the blood type diet, having used it to clear up several health conditions I suffered with for years like sinusitis and low-back pain.

I have been scouring the internet for months looking for an AMAZING smoothie recipe book that has blood-type smoothie recommendations when I stumbled upon
THIS BOOK.

It includes over 270 recipes and is currently selling at $4.97, an unbelievable value for so much content.  The recipes are absolutely fantastic and blood-type friendly.

They’ve helped give me new ideas to change up my usual morning smoothies and add a little variety to my day.  If you’re like me and and need your daily smoothie fix please feel free to check out Juicing Secrets by clicking HERE.  You’ll be glad you did!

Blood Type AB Diet & Food List

July 14, 2013: A Note By Dr. Mike

Food reactions are hidden as often as they are obvious.  Obvious reactions would include throat swelling, itching especially along the outsides of the arms, sneezing, and watery eyes.  But there are other reactions such as nasal congestion, skin irritation/redness, fatigue/yawning, tongue/throat scratchiness/irritation, weight gain, etc. that a person often won’t correlate with food consumption.

It is expected for any one or several of the above-mentioned symptoms to occur within minutes or hours of consuming a food found on your AVOID list.  If you experience any of the above symptoms after eating a food that is found on your NEUTRAL or BENEFICIAL list then you should consider having your adrenal hormones tested through the saliva. A reaction to one of these foods indicates that your adrenal glands are recognizing that food as a foreign invader and mounting an inflammatory/immune response against the food!

This is not good.  If the body is attacking foods that it shouldn’t be then your chances of acquiring an auto-immune disease in the future are high.  In auto-immune conditions the body attacks it’s own cells, thinking they too are a foreign invader.  If your body is already recognizing harmless or even beneficial foods as foreign invaders then the auto-immune process has likely begun on a small- or large-scale.

 

History

According to Dr. Peter D’Adamo in his book Eat Right For Your Blood Type, “Blood Type AB is less than a thousand years old, rare (2 to 5 percent of the population), and biologically complex.  Multiple antigens make Type Abs sometimes A-like, sometimes B-like, and sometimes a fusion of both.”

“This multiplicity of qualities can be positive or negative, depending on the circumstances, so the Type AB Diet requires that you read your food lists very carefully.”

Weight Loss

Due to their mixed inheritance from Blood Type As and Bs, there can be special problems involved in weight loss for Blood Type Abs.  For example, Blood Type Abs combine the low stomach acid of Blood Type As with the Blood Type B consumption of meat, which requires adequate stomach acid to breakdown, and you have a problem.  So the meat Blood Type Abs eat tends to get stored as fat.  The same holds true for corn, wheat, and sesame-containing foods.
