Blood Type Diet

Natural way to boost energy and recover from fatigue or any dis-ease.

My journey to understand and recover from fatigue has paused, lingered and returned to the Blood Type Diet. The first visit was for me. Michael was suffering from terrible migraines and while researching for him I found something that works great for us. No good deed goes unrewarded …

Michael and I are opposites. I am a Blood Type A which Dr. D'Adamo refers to as "The Cultivator." Another word is vegetarian. Michael is a Type "O" a.k.a. "The Hunter" a.k.a. carnivorous! My first "date" meals for him were unconsciously vegi- oriented. Put me in a kitchen and I'm reaching for a chopping knife and a big vegetable! He ate a couple of these meals with exclamations of "delicious!" Around the time of the third repast he was at my elbow with a side of meat. One of our first jokes was "and here's the beef!"

Making a long story short --- the more I work with the principles of The Blood Type diet the better we feel. Last year's health adventure UPPED my focus and integrated another work of Dr. D'Adamo, CANCER Fight It with the Blood Type Diet. This book features a new food value category, "super beneficial foods," a disease-fighting and immunity-boosting super food category.

This week I will post the super beneficial foods for each blood type. The goal is to have you incorporate as many as possible into your daily diet routine.

It can be as easy as sprinkling flax on your oatmeal and throwing in some dried cherries then adding soymilk to your morning java. It can take some effort like what I'm going through to find jackfruit! It may also give you a great reason to hang out in French restaurants (Escargot is a super beneficial for Type A's.)

Note: I'll be listing for one blood type a day. If this isn't you, just check back in a couple of days.

Blood Type A:

I have a couple more recommendations for you.

  1. Print off this list. Post it in your kitchen so that it is at your finger tips and under your nose, literally.
  2. Purchase Dr. Peter D'Adamo's book: Cancer: Fight It with the Blood Type Diet (Eat Right for Your Type Health Library) You don't have to have cancer to benefit hugely from this book. You don't have to have adrenal failure before you start loving, nourishing and caring from your adrenal glands with the Fatigue Be Gone Jumpstart e-Guide.
  3. If you don't know your blood type you can be "typed" for free by donating blood at a blood bank. You can also order an inexpensive blood type test kit here.

Finally, do sign up to receive the almost weekly Fatigue Be Gone Newsletter. I keep it
