There’s the Atkins diet which is known for eliminating carbs, the South Beach diet which is known for eliminating and then reintroducing carbs, and then the Mediterranean diet which is known for focusing on healthy fats and lots of produce and lean proteins. All of these are popular diet choices that have caused massive followings of people who swear by the diet’s success. The catch? They’re just generalized plans that everyone follows… but what if there was a plan that focuses on the compatibility of the diet with your genetic makeup? That’s where the Blood Type diet may come into play.

What It Is

This diet, which is the brainchild of Dr. Peter D’Adamo, is based on your specific blood type and what type of foods and exercise work in harmony with it. For instance, people who have Type-O blood types are generally more compatible with intense physical exercise and a diet focusing on animal proteins. Type-A blood types need a more serene exercise regime and a diet that is more vegetarian based. Type-B blood types should typically engage in moderate exercise and a balanced diet. Type-AB blood types thrive on a healthy mix of calming exercises and moderate intensity exercises and a balanced diet.

The Pros

Eating for your blood type, unlike other popular diets, doesn’t give you a list full of restrictions. Instead it hones in on certain food choices for certain people and an exercise plan that should fit each person based on their blood type. The balanced focus of diet and exercise is good advice for anyone looking to get in shape, regardless of the diet they’re thinking about doing.

The Cons

While it sounds like a scientific approach to diet and exercise, there really isn’t a whole lot of actual scientific research backing up eating based on your blood type, making doctors skeptical as to its overall validity. Another issue that comes into play is that, even if something may be good for a particular blood type, if the person doesn’t like that particular type of nutrition plan or exercise then they probably won’t stick to it. Diet and exercise need to be enjoyable to be maintained and effective.


If you do an internet search you’ll find several stories from people who have followed the blood type diet and experienced great success, but like every diet it really depends on the commitment of the person. However if you’ve hit a plateau and are looking to shake things up a bit, this could be the diet and exercise program that works for you.
