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.

    I've had great success with this eating approach...FOLLOWING SOM

    I've had great success with this eating approach...FOLLOWING SOMEBODY ELSE'S BLOOD TYPE! I'm a type A positive and I felt sick and terrible following the advice from my chapter. I don't tolerate gluten well, it cut out nearly all meat and dairy, and advised me against what had always been superfoods for me like bananas. When I decided to try eating for the type O positive diet, just to see what would happen, it was like somebody flipped a switch in me and I immediately felt like superman! I had amazing energy, my weight started dropping so fast it actually scared me enough to make a quick appointment with my primary care doctor to make sure there wasn't something wrong with me. I told her about the diet and she did a quick blood type test along with the other things she'd ordered and, sure enough, I really am A positive. I guess my digestive system thinks I'm an O! I'm sticking with one of the diets from the book, just not the one the doctor who wrote it recommended for me. I gave it three stars for this reason, it works but not the way the doc says it should! At least in my case. If you try it and it's not working for you, maybe try shopping around to the other blood types??? I'm just glad I found something that works so well, I don't really care how or why or what it took to get there. :)

    A Practical Starting Point

    I initially thought that this made no sense. But decided to browse the book to see what Dr. D'Adamo had to say.

    5 foods that I had previously identified on my own that did not agree with my system were listed as foods to avoid for my blood type. One food match I might have said to myself coincidence. 2 perhaps coincidence. But all 5 that I had identified on the avoid list, perhaps he had something.

    In reading this book, it makes sense. And from a practical point of view it is a starting point to then possibly add foods back into your diet and see how they affect you personally.

    A Good Eye Opener

    I bought this book at my health foods store. It helped me plan healthy diets for the people I take care of. If you want to lose weight this book can help.

    Not credible

    An interesting read but the "science" does not seem credible to me.

    Is this a blood type A diet?

    I read this several years ago. With very young children and too many blood types in the family, it seemed too complicated and I did not try the diet. It was intriging but I found the science behind the idea poorly explained. I had no way of evaluating whether the science made any sense or not because there just was not enough information. I'd really like to read a good explaination. I was reading reviews today. It seems that most of the people that loved the diet and mentioned their blood type were type A. Does this mean that he hit the nail on the head with the type A diet but missed (at least to some extent) with the others? Or is it that the diet he recommends for type A is the ideal diet for humankind and they had good results, by chance, because what was simply a good diet for everyone happened to be the one recommended to them? Reviewers who have tried the diet, please mention your blood type.
