    Default Eating for your Blood type

    Hi all

    Had an interesting conversation with a family friend.

    Basically, it was not about what foods are good for you, But what is good for your particular blood type
    So in short the blood type diet is based on the principal that when we eat a chemical reaction occurs between the food we eat and our blood. This reaction, which is genetically inherited, is caused by proteins found in food called lectins, which can cause our blood cells to clump or adhere together.

    When you eat foods that contains lectins which are incompatible with your blood type antigen, the lectins target an organ or bodily system and can cause blood cells to start to agglutinate.
    Our immune system protects us from a majority of the lectins we eat, however a small percentage ends up in the blood stream and can cause reactions in different parts of the body.

    So there is Type A, B, O and AB.
    Depending on what type you are the jist is, Say Type A. They are said to do much better on a vegetarian diet , Type O’s do well on a heavy meat diet
    Me personally, I call bullshit but I would like to see what you all think
    For the sake of it, I would like to find out what blood type I am



    Your thoughts?

    Never considered that blood type would make a difference, but I am 100% certain that different people do better on different foods.

    I get easily bloated and tend to put on fat with a bloated midsection if I eat a diet high in carbs, especially bread, and cake type stuff as well as having a lot of gas. Don't have any of those issues if I eat meat, bacon, eggs, etc. while other seem to do well on carbs.

    Never thought it linked to blood type though, always just thought it's how different people process their food.

    My wife tried one before we got married and had good result's. was it because she was eating these blood type compatable foods? Doubt it she has since been on other much simpler diets and got better results.

    I call bullshit well.

    What a load of bs!

    There is not one bit of scientific evidence to support it.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blood_type_diet
    The "Blood Type Diet": Fact or Fiction? Toronto Vegetarian Association Toronto Vegetarian Association

    According to the diet/book if you are blood type A you are a docile vegetarian , type b is a omnivore and type O are hunters and should eat mostly protein.
    It also talks about blood astrology
    Utter BS!

    I sometimes think there is a correlation between what we eat our health and origins of our ancestry.

    I mean, the Dutch have a radically different diet to the Greeks.

    A broad example;
    My brother likes potato and cabbage
    I like sardines, garlic and olives, food like that.

    Blood type diets are bunk. No actual evidence behind them.

    People say certain foods don't agree with them and it can be true if you have an allergy but a lot of the time it is because they don't eat those foods regularly.

    It can take a month or more for your digestive system to adjust to the foods you regularly eat. If you never eat bread then have a heap its likely that you could feel a bit ordinary. But if you slowly introduce it and give it time your body will adjust to it.

    It's like the protein powder farts most of us experience when we first had protein powder( no bull customers excluded). Heaps of rotten farts, now that the body had adapted it goes away for most People.

    Yeah Bazza, it's like smoking, the first few drags make you cough your lungs out but after a while your body adjusts to it.

    Adjusts by getting lung cancer, or in the case of eating by getting fat and sick.
