Section I: Understanding Blood Types

4 Type O: Everything You Need to Know

This chapter includes information on the specific characteristics of each blood type in relation to predisposition to illnesses and disease, with advice on how to address these risks through nutrition.

Section II: The Bloodtypes Diet for Type O

5 How to Become an Instinctive Eater

Instinctive eating can help you to pick up immediately on the signals your body is sending. You will quickly become aware of the negative responses your body warns you about when you eat incompatible foods.

6 Getting Started: The Four-Week Test

For four weeks, you will monitor the foods you eat, choosing from the blood type-specific food groupings given in this book. There are approximately sixteen food groups given, which give you a wonderful array of food to choose from, with many varieties in each group. As you learn to eat correctly for your blood type, your body will function more properly, your metabolism will stay revved up, and your digestive system will operate more efficiently. You will be able to control your weight without dieting and live longer with less to no incapacitating illnesses.

7 Individualized Eating Plan for Type O

Throughout this book, I’ve covered all the “technical” information. Now it’s time for you to put all this information to work. It’s simple. Just make copies of the Meal Planner Chart (see Appendix A) or download it from my Web site at Then fill in your Meal Planner Chart with the meals that appeal to you in the meal plan section that follows the food lists in this chapter. You can mix and match the meals; they are not listed in any particular order. Any breakfast meal idea can peacefully coexist with any lunch or dinner from the list. Or you can create your own meals.

8 Nutritional Supplements for Type O

This chapter provides a brief list of nutrition support ideas and strategies that Dr. Joe believes will cover the bases for most people. They are foundational as far as supporting your diet (compatible with your blood type). Of course, if you have a specific health condition or concern, please consult with your health practitioner or go to the author’s Web site ( and click on Healthy Lifestyles Survey. The information you input in the survey will assist Dr. Joe in being most accurate with your specific condition for individualizing your protocol.

9 Tips for Making It All Work

This chapter wraps up the author’s message, and can serve as the next best thing to having your own personal nutrition and fitness coach. He has given you the best he can on paper to get you started in the right direction and ultimately to help you reach your goals—the rest is up to you!

    Eat foods your bloodtype can metabolize

    The premise of this series is an old idea from the 80's that each bloodtype has certain foods that it cannot digest efficiently. This inefficient metabolism means that the person puts on weight even if the food is considered a "healthy" food. I chose the Type B book. The author stuck to the topic and didn't introduce his website and supporting health items until the very last chapter which I appreciated. He explained his ideas clearly although definitely in male oriented examples but still, totally understandable to me. I was disappointed that he didn't have a chapter or even really a portion of a chapter on exercise but rather referred the reader to the main book. I liked that the books were available in individual bloodtype rather than having to buy a book that contained all of them and end up being overwhelmed with extraneous information. I tried his ideas and do feel better. The recipes at the back were doable except for the smoothies which included his blood specific protein powder. His lists of beneficial foods, neutral foods, and avoid foods were easy to follow and could be photocopied for carrying in my purse.
    Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Strang Publishers as part of their book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own
