    Has anyone tried to eat according to the Eat Right 4 Your Type book or diet?

    I started reading this book a few days ago and am amazed at how much sense it makes.  I was just wondering if anyone had tried to eat that way and what results they had if they did?

    Yes.

    The book is great, and I'm actually in the process of writing an article about it.

    I'm a Blood Type O, so I figured that the Paleo Diet (which mimics the diet of our ancestors that lived during the PaleoLithic Era) would suit my body best.

    So far, I've experienced more energy, more focus/productivity, less cravings, more intense workouts, and more sexual drive as well.

    I would highly recommend not just doing the diet, but trying to figure out the lifestyle that people with your blood type had. Focus on the notes he goes into about how to exercise and why that's important in relation to your body's natural stress response.

    Enjoy your journey! Keep us posted on your results.

      Thanks I can't believe all the information in this book. I mean it even tells you what type of exercising to do.  Let me know when you finish the article I would love to read it and I'll let you know how it works:)

      LOL on the exercise, Charlu. I forgot about that portion, but it was on target for me as well in that aspect. :-)

    I read it cover to cover, years ago.   That's as much as I did.  I recall thinking that although it was interesting and informative.....I had serious doubts about it's validity.  I never went further and tried out the theory.  I will, however, be reading the comments you receive on this question!
    For instance, with the answer from Jay Max.....I have a tendency to believe he has had wonderful results because he's following a very healthy program.  Whether it has anything at all to do with his blood type is doubtful to me.  Know what I mean?

      I know what you mean, but the more I read, the more it makes sense.  It's like putting airplane fuel in a car.  Like the different acids in oranges and grapefruits and how one is good for me while the other reduces mineral absorption  I gotta try it

    I have this book and have read it a few times over the years. It does have some valuable information and seems to be on target scientifically regarding antigens, antibodies, etc.

    I was also completely amazed on how much sense it made, especially after reviewing Type O which is what I am. I already knew I had intolerances to dairy, wheat, and certain other foods. When reading the book for the first time, it so correlated with what I already knew. I then reviewed Type A which is what my husband and one of my daughters is, and it totally correlated with them.

    However, I do have to say that I don't agree with the "serving size" for foods. As a nutritionist and scientific researcher, I know that a certain amount of calories and macronutrients (i.e., protein, carbohydrates, and fats) are necessary for the body. The Blood Type Diet is a "one size fits all" approach when it comes to this. If you aren't a tiny person (120 pounds or less), the book promotes too little calories and macros.

    Therefore, I would take the good and leave the bad... that is with any information you gather.

      That's amazing because I also found several things that I didn't have a tolerance for that they stated was related to my blood type.  You are so right about taking the good and leaving the rest.. Thanks for an awesome answer and forethought.
