I received an email in the past few days from someone who was considering the Eat Right For Your Blood Type diet. It saddens and frightens me that this so-called diet still has people believing in it. The evidence continues to mount that a plant based diet is the safest, healthiest and is a lifestyle that can easily be sustained throughout life. Since 1997 at Seattle Hypnosis with Roger Moore my Slender For Life™ hypnosis for weight loss program has successfully supported hundreds of people with healthy and lasting weight loss.
Blood Type Diet Debunked
Dr. Michael Greger, November 12, 2014: Dr. Peter D’Adamo’s book Eat Right for Your Type makes the astounding claim that people with different blood types should eat different foods. Type O’s, for example, are supposed to be like the hunter and eat a lot of meat, whereas type A’s are supposed to eat less. A 2013 systematic review of the evidence supporting blood type diets was published in one of the world’s most prestigious nutrition journals. The researchers didn’t find any.
The researchers sifted through over a thousand papers that might shed some light on the issue, and none of the studies showed an association between blood type diets and health-related outcomes. They conclude that “there is currently no evidence that an adherence to blood type diets will provide health benefits, despite the substantial presence and perseverance of blood type diets within the health industry.”
Seriously, how would the human race have survived for thousands of years if food choices were based on knowing your blood type? Would God really make healthy eating that complicated? I don’t think so!
Last year Kaiser Permanente announced that research shows that plant-based diets are cost-effective, low-risk interventions that may lower body mass index, blood pressure, HbA1C, and cholesterol levels. They may also reduce the number of medications needed to treat chronic diseases and lower ischemic heart disease mortality rates. Physicians should consider recommending a plant-based diet to ALL their patients, especially those with high blood pressure, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, or obesity.
