Eating for your blood type?

My husband is considering eating for his blood type. Has anyone had success/failure with eating for your blood type? It makes sense, but on the other hand, I never hear much about it. Any comments if it is worth trying? His goal is for more energy (less fatique). His blood work is OK (no significent health problems), but I guess everyone can always use more energy. Thanks for any help!

He should add as much as vegetables in his menu as he can...

Re: Eating for your blood type?

What is his blood type and age? I am type O. That means I'm supposed to eat meat. I tried this diet for a while but didn't see any difference in my energy level. Like your your husband I'm in good health with good blood work.

After trying the blood-type diet, I became a vegan (no meat). I guess that means I shouldn't be doing very well but I'm actually doing better on my blood-work because my cholesterol numbers improved. But I feel about the same, I still feel healthy.

If I'm going to feel the same, regardless of which diet I choose, I prefer to go vegan because there are a lot of health risks associated with animal protein consumption.

Re: Eating for your blood type?

I'll agree that one needs to be concerned about how many steaks they may be consuming a month.....but I think today, the bigger issue is the chain of custody for whatever you are consuming. Be it fish, chicken or beef. I think you are better off for example, with a grass-fed beef product from a local farmer that has not pumped his cattle full of growth hormones--than a piece of "farm-raised" fish that has been swimming in a cesspool of various fluids and perhaps not kept at proper temperatures as it traveled across several time zones. The same for chickens-some of which live in pretty poor conditions.

One of the latest health scares involved "salad-ingredients". I think avoiding "fake" sugars and over-processed food will get you far.
