Blood Type Diet - Type B

Michael Lam, MD, MPH

The sturdy and alert Type Bs are usually able to resist many of the most severe
diseases common to modern life, such as heart disease and cancer. In fact, a Type B
who carefully follows the recommended diet can often bypass severe disease and
live a long and healthy life. Type Bs are more prone to immune-system disorders
such as multiple sclerosis, lupus, and chronic fatigue syndrome.

The Type B Diet is balance and wholesome, including a wide variety of foods.

For Type Bs, the biggest factors in weight gain are corn, buckwheat, lentils, peanuts
and sesame seeds. These foods have different lectin that affect the efficiency of the
metabolic process, resulting in fatigue, fluid retention, and hypoglycemia. The
gluten lectin in wheat germ and whole wheat products also adds to the problems
cause by other metabolism-slowing foods.

It is important to leave off chicken for Type Bs. Chicken contains a Blood Type B
agglutinating lectin in its muscle tissue, which attack the bloodstream and
potentially lead to strokes and immune disorders. Type Bs thrive on deep-ocean
fish, but should avoid all shellfish. The shellfish contain lectins that are disruptive
to the Type B system.

Type B is the only blood type that can fully enjoy a variety of dairy foods. Most
nuts and seeds (especially peanuts, sesame seeds and sunflower seeds) are not
advised for Type Bs., they contain lectins that interfere with Type B insulin

Wheat is not tolerated well by most Type Bs. They contain a lectin that reuce
insulin efficiency and failure to stimulate fat "burning". Rye contains a lectin that
settles in the vascular system, causing blood disorders and potentially strokes. Corn
and buckwheat are major factors in Type B weight gain, they contribute to a
sluggish metabolism, insulin irregularity, fluid retention, and fatigue.

Eliminate tomatoes completely from Type B diet. It has lectins that irritate the
stomach lining. Fruits and vegetables are generally well tolerated and should be
taken generously.

The Blood Type Diet - Type B

Do you respond to stress with creativity and have a strong immune system? These
are some characteristics of people with type B blood. This plan suggests that your
blood type provides the blueprints in your body that determine eating habits, food
aversions, allergies, medical conditions, and even the ability to metabolize food and
burn calories. If you eat according to what your blood type prefers, then you will be
able to perform at optimal levels and lose weight in the process.

Different foods introduce substances into the body called lectins. Depending on
your blood type, certain lectins are welcomed by your immune system, while others
aggravate it. The theory here is if you only eat foods that contain compatible lectins,
then your body can remain balanced and at a healthy weight.

Since type B blood is considered to represent balance, people with type B blood
(type B's) can eat a wide variety of foods without having to consider avoiding entire
food groups, as is necessary with some other blood types.

What makes The Blood Type B Diet a different

Weight Loss Plan?
This is a very unique approach to weight loss that requires particular attention to
detail and demands a lot of the dieter.

In the end, though, they recommend you lose weight by cutting out processed foods
and limiting portion size.

What is The Blood Type Diet - Type B?

This diet was created by Dr. Peter J. D'Adamo, a second-generation naturopathic
doctor. He and his father have compiled information on blood types for decades and
have applied this research to create very specific guidelines for diet, exercise and
supplement use. By eating according to your blood type, the Blood Type B Diet
promises to help you avoid infections and disease, eliminate toxins and lose weight.

Type B is believed to have developed somewhere between 10,000-15,000 B.C. near

where India is today. Type B blood represents "the most clearly defined geographic
distribution" and is found to be very common in ancient Jewish family lines. All of
these claims (and numerous others) are based on history, ancestry, evolution and
some scientific evidence.

Each Blood Type Diet has a strict regimen that includes meal planning (with three
days of sample menus and recipes), supplement advice, and stress, exercise and
personality profiling. Lists of foods (labeled "highly beneficial," "neutral" or
"avoid") that encourage weight gain and loss are provided, as are tables and lists to
help you organize food options and how often you should be eating certain foods
(for example, type B's should consume muffins less than once a week).

A registered dietitian designs sample menus and recipes for you on this diet. The
menus are offered in "standard" and "weight control" forms (weight control just
means less food at each meal). Recipes are low calorie and include natural and
whole ingredients (no processed foods on this diet!). Dishes include Yogurt-Herb
Cheese and Fettuccine Alfredo. Sugar sweetened foods that contain white sugar,
brown sugar, honey or molasses are allowed in moderation. Alcohol is not
recommended for initial weight loss.

During maintenance, white wine, red wine and beer are considered "neutral" and are
allowed in moderation. Distilled alcohol is never allowed.

A typical day on the "weight control" menu looks like:

Breakfast: puffed rice with goat's milk

Lunch: Lunch: 1/2 cup of water packed tuna and 1 slice of bread

Snack: low fat yogurt with raisins

Dinner: broiled fish with steamed vegetables, roasted yams with rosemary and
mixed fresh fruit

What are the weight loss expectations?

The goal of the Blood Type B Diet is to optimize health and body performance
through food choices and corresponding exercise regimens. Weight loss results are
said to be noticeable within two weeks, but how much is not specified.
Is exercise promoted?

Blood type B requires balanced physical exercise; a combination of aerobic activity

with mental relaxation. Type B's also respond well to team and group activities.
Type B's should exercise 3 times a week for 30-60 minutes depending on the
activity. Recommendations include: aerobics, tennis, hiking, jogging, tai chi, yoga
and swimming.

Are supplements recommended on the Blood Type Diet - Type B?

Various vitamin and herbal supplements are recommended; however vitamins and
herbs that can benefit one blood type may be harmful to others. The supplement
focus for blood type B includes improving brain clarity and focus. The
recommended Blood Type B Diet supplements include magnesium, licorice and
digestive enzymes.
