i bought this book four years ago at the recommendation of a friend. i found the diet to be quite an adjustment at first. i am type O and i should be a meat/fish/poultry eater which was not a problem, but i had to cut out wheat, corn, vinegar, pork, wine, coffee and many other thigns that i love but were on my avoid list. i tried the diet for one year and had tremendous results. i lost weight, felt energized and generally well balanced. i also participated in martial arts training like kickoxing prior to the diet, but dr. d'adamo actually said that martial arts is one of the best exercises for type o's. then i got married and completely fell off the diet and exercise regimine. needless to say i gained weight, fought depression, eliminated my libido, etc. i am now getting divorced, due to other circumstances, but i felt the need to improve my current situation in light of this. i recently reread dr. d'adamo's books and committed to going back on the diet. i also began going to my martial arts classes after a four year hiatus. after two weeks back on the diet and exercise program i am feeling much better. again, more energy, and mental clarity. and the best part is i have already lost seven pounds. i recommend that everyone at least buy the booka nd have an open mind. try the diet for one month. i promise the results will compell you to stick with it. i just wish i had had the sense to stick with it once i got married. but, hey it's never too late to get with, or back to , the program.

This book seemed ok at first glance. The idea that I would need to eat differently than somebody else made perfect sense to me. Then I started to read the book and realized how terrible it really was. Most of the blood types do not get a complete and healthy diet by what is outlined in the book. I showed this to my doctor and he warned me against this type of diet saying that it might provide the temporary weight loss however long term it was not a healthy idea. Nothing beats good old fashioned exercise and reducing your caloric intake. I ended up going to Weight Watchers and lost all the weight I wanted to lose AND learned how to eat nutritiously. The nutrition you need does not hinge on your blood type.

    Like the info but.....

    I like the information in the book, however the fonts even at the largest setting are very hard to read in parts of the book. I have purchased several books and this is one of the most expensive one I have purchased and the worst print.

    Not very helpful

    I was very excited about buying this book after hearing so much about it, but when I got it, it did not live up to my expectations. First of all, the foods for my type were very random. Half of them I had no idea what they were. I would only be able to find some of them at a gourmet store. Second of all, there is a large group of foods not included. Food that I liked were not included in any of the groups (beneficial, neutral, or avoid). I didn't know whether to eat them or not. Overall, it was hard to stick to, and it was not at all what I was hoping for.

    It's all the same

    I thought this book would be different and offer some real insight but it's not. It just a question of cutting calories by another name. If you are O, than favor one food and avoid the others, etc. Of course this works, you just cut out 2 to 3 of the food groups and naturally you cut your calorie intake! How long can one person last stuffing themselves with one type of food before they get bored, lose interest in what they are eating (if they manage to stay on the diet), and cut their calorie intake. say yourself the cash and reading time.
