Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The author, a naturopathic doctor, follows his bestselling guide to healthy eating based on blood type (Eat Right for Your Type) with a program designed to provide optimal conditions for fertility as well as for pregnancy and childbirth. D'Adamo, with the collaboration of freelance writer Whitney, utilizes current genetic research to explain the chemical reaction between blood type and food. Someone, for example, with Type O blood who wants to conceive should eat a diet that includes beef or lamb, as proteins from these meats help to create a beneficial physical atmosphere for conception. A woman with Type A blood, however, in order to create the best conditions for conception, should eliminate meat from her diet and consume fish and seafood as her chief sources of protein. Divided into sections for blood Types O, A, B and AB, D'Adamo provides nutritional strategies, including recipes, concerning detailed advice on what foods to consume, avoid, and how frequently to eat. According to the author, following these guidelines will facilitate trouble-free pregnancies and childbirths. He also suggests exercises for before and after birth that are based on type. To best recover from childbirth, an AB woman should rely more on stretching exercises, while a Type O mother can engage more quickly in aerobics. Included also are nutritional plans, based on blood type, for the new baby. This is a very useful tool for new parents with a strong interest in alternative medicine. (Apr.)

Meet the Author

For over 20 years, Peter D’Adamo has extensively researched the connections between blood type, food, and disease.  Combining his findings with previously established research by other scientists in his field, D’Adamo published his first book, Eat Right 4 Your Type, in 1996.  The only book to offer individualized health and diet programs based on the differences between blood types, Eat Right 4 Your Type became a New York Times bestseller and brought worldwide recognition to D’Adamo’s blood type theories.  NutriBooks named it one of the ten most influential health books ever written.



D’Adamo’s next book, Cook Right 4 Your Type, is the kitchen companion for anyone on the blood type diet that includes recipes and 30-day menu plans for each blood type.  The third book in the series, Live Right 4 Your Type, offers readers a complete program for healthy living based on an individual’s blood type.  The Eat Right 4 Your Type Complete Blood Type Encyclopedia, published in 2002, is the ultimate one-stop source for information about ailments, food, herbs and supplements as they relate to blood type.  D’Adamo’s latest book, Eat Right 4 Your Baby, is a breakthrough blood type-based strategy for fertility, pregnancy, nursing and raising a healthy baby.



Named “Physician of the Year” in 1990 by the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians, D’Adamo currently serves on the Board of Trustees for his alma mater, Bastyr University, the nation’s leading naturopathic institution.  In 1999, respected industry analysts named Eat Right 4 Your Type, “One of the Ten Most Influential Health Books of the Century,” and Dr. Peter D’Adamo the “Most Intriguing Health Author of 1999.”  The Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine hailed Eat Right 4 Your Type as the “Boldest of the New Books on Alternative Medicine.” An international phenomenon, Eat Right 4 Your Type, Cook Right 4 Your Type, and Live Right 4 Your Type have been translated into over 50 languages worldwide. 



D’Adamo is the founder and editor emeritus of the Journal of Naturopathic Medicine.  He maintains a small private practice in Stamford, Connecticut, and lectures around the world.  For further information, please visit D’Adamo’s award-winning website, www.dadamo.com.
