Page 12 | Abby's Magazine - The Blood Type Diet and Weight Loss Could eating a diet based on your blood type – O, A, B, or AB – help you trim down and get healthier? That's the conclusion of Peter J.D. D'Adamo, eminent naturopathic physician and researcher. The foods you eat react chemically with your blood. If you follow a diet designed for your blood type, your body will digest food more efficiently. You'll loose weight, have more energy, and help prevent disease. Researchers have identified over 1000 common foods that contain powerful proteins called lectins. These food lectins become active and important for you when they interact with you blood. For example, after consuming any number of foods containing wheat, both blood types O and A can experience bloating and other digestive problems. This may be more than a simple "food intolerance." The walls of the stomach and intestines are lined with sensitive receptors that interact with, and respond to, the lectin in wheat. At first, you many only experience that wheat lectin interaction as a mild digestive problem, or a dull, listless feeling after consuming foods not right for you. Over time, the result is a steadily deteriorating state of health, loss of energy, and weight gain. The good news is, by removing these targeted foods and replacing them with foods more suitable for your blood type, you begin to experience the benefits of a leaner, cleaner, more energetic body. Over 80% of Americans are either type O or A. Wheat and corn by-products are two of the key weight- gaining foods for blood types O and A. Amazingly, most popular "low calorie" diet bars and shakes contain whey and corn-derived ingredients which for blood type O: • Inflames your digestive tract lining and interferes with your digestive process, causing bloating • Slows down the rate of food metabolism, so you don't efficiently burn calories for energy • Compromises your production of insulin • Upsets your hormonal balance, causing water retention, thyroid disorders and other problems. By simply replacing the key weight-gaining foods in your diet, you can begin not only helping your body lose weight, but also gain more energy. Inflammation is an essential immune response that helps the body react to and recover from changes in cells and tissues. Yet evidence increasingly suggests that inflammation can also be a root cause of many degenerative conditions, so maintaining a normal inflammatory response is an important element of whole-body health and wellbeing.* Extinguish features whole foods and botanicals that have been traditionally used and tested for their effective contribution to balancing and maintaining a healthy inflammatory response, optimal cellular health and whole body wellness.* *These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.
