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.

    Too technical

    Just wanted the facts...not so much the science of it. This book reads like a medical journal. I should have gotten a sample first!

    Blueprint for your health based on your blood type!

    Dr. Peter D'Adamo attempts to prove that to achieve optimal health, a person should consume a prescribed diet based on their blood type. Now, I am not a scientist. However, I am fairly health conscious and I believe that there is some correlation between diet and blood type. My blood type is 'A -' and his description of Type A individuals was pretty accurate. For example, Type A individuals are described as having sensitive digestive systems and producing a lot of mucus. I have a sensitive digestive system and my body does produce a lot of mucus. Therefore I avoid orange juice, milk, and any other mucus-producing foods. I also avoid drinking beer because it upsets my stomach. Dr D'Adamo also recommended that Type A people adopt a vegetarian diet because Type A people tend to be susceptible to cardiovascular disease. That's also true, but that could be said for other blood types as well. I've dealt with elevated cholestorol despite being fairly health conscious and I also know people who can eat anything and maintain normal to low cholestorol. So, I believe that some people burn cholesterol differently and a factor could be blood type. What I found really useful with this book is that he recommended foods that were beneficial,neutral, and foods to be avoid for each blood type. Overall, this is one of many good diet books out in the market. However, I am also a realist. If you can implement 80% of what Dr. D'Adamo recommends, you will have much improved health!

    Sample isnt great

    I've heard a lot about this book. I definitely don't want to buy the book based off the "sample". Its 35 pages of nothing. Literally, nothing but TOC, acknowledgement, and other useless pages. I would rather check it out from the library.

    Fascinating

    I find this whole idea of different blood types needing different foods interesting. I have been following the diet for over a month and have noticed such an increase in energy and still can't believe that grains and veggies will completely satisfy me. So far so good!

    How to Treat Your Illness or Disease with Relevant Herbs

    Dr. Peter D¿Adamo has written a very interesting adjunct to his superb book, Live Right 4 Your Type. If you have already read that earlier book, you will find this book adds to your knowledge by letting you know about the latest research about the statistical correlations of various diseases and illnesses to those with various blood types. I wrote down the illnesses that I have more frequently than other people I know, and the diseases I have experienced before reading this book. I checked my experience against what the book reports, and found a high correlation (I have had two additional problems not typical of my Type O blood, and have not experienced three problems often associated with Type O people). I did the same for my wife, who has a different blood type, and found that her pattern reasonably closely matched what is described in the book as well. Then, the book has an excellent discussion of why people with each blood type can be affected differently by each illness or disease. You are also given extensive suggestions for herbal therapies that match your herb type. I have not had experiences with the herbs that were suggested for me, so I cannot comment on how relevant they are. If you already use herbs to improve conditions, you will probably adore this book. If you don¿t use many herbs, you will probably appreciate understanding more about the potential strengths and weaknesses of your blood chemistry. The book is quite thorough in providing articles you can read for more details, and where to access these articles on-line. If you have not read Live Right 4 Your Type, you will find that this book covers almost the same background material but at a much higher level of abstraction. There is a fairly complete discussion of how blood types seem to have developed and what their chemical implications are. In other ways, the book is quite complete in similarity to the earlier ones. For example, you get the food indications for each blood type, essentially like the information in both Eat Right 4 Your Type and Live Right 4 Your Type. Many people are skeptical about Dr. D¿Adamo¿s work. I found him careful about what he had to say. For example, he notes that the risk charts in the book describe how blood type ¿in conjunction with other factors . . . may be [associated with] an increased risk for developing a certain disease.¿ As to the diseases and illnesses, I was impressed to see how much different cancers were broken down by the part of the body affected while different infections were also segmented. I always find it helpful to keep the research-based associations to blood type in mind when I read other books about nutrition, health, and diseases. Perhaps someday other health authors will add this perspective to their work, as well. Until then, I am very grateful to Dr. D¿Adamo for helping me understand how to make the most out of being a Type O person! How can you turn your strengths and weaknesses into resources for improving the quality of your life . . . and those you care about? Keep your mind and your body full of the most helpful resources you can add! Donald Mitchell, co-author of The 2,000 Percent Solution and The Irresistible Growth Enterprise
