I don't know how the authors came up with their food lists, but I don't really care. It works! I lost 128 lbs., my cholesterol plummeted, I'm a new person, and I got my self esteem back. I eat everything but my avoid foods, and my weight just keeps dropping. I love the new me! When I told my friends about the diet they thought I was crazy. Now they are all doing it. My doctor said it was nonsense, but now he's putting all his patients on it. Its been a miracle for me. I'm alive again! I love it! Just do it! You're gonna hate yourself later for not trying it. Everyone will eventually eat this way and live longer.
My father is blood type AB and my mother blood type O. I am type B, nineteen years old, and attend college. Last summer I visited my father and went on the diet and did the exercise recommended. I went from 165 lbs. to 135 lbs., and from 28% body fat to 9% body fat in 8 weeks. The diet and exercise works like a charm and I'm glad my dad started me young. My father's family were mostly type A, and just as the book says, they all died young of heart disease. My B grandmother, on my father's side is in good health at 76. On my mother's side they are all type O and very healthy. My great grandparents are in their 90's and still with it. The part about life span is significant and accurate as far as my family is concerned. The part about compatibility is also accurate. My parents, who are AB and O stayed married for 10 years. After they divorced they each married spouses of their same blood type, and both are very happy. Coincidence? I think not. I wish this subject was taught in college, as it seems much more relevant and practible than many of the courses I am required to take.
Being of Korean decent it is believed by many that people with Type AB blood are royalty. Whether it is because they are so rare, or that many seem to possess qualities that we associate with royalty, may be the reason. John F. Kennedy, Type AB was the closest the United States came to royalty. It also explains why he was so attracted to Marilyn Monroe, also Type AB. Its good to see Americans starting to believe what us Asians have known for so many years. That your bloodtype is a blueprint of your entire self. The diet portion of the book is great, but the bloodtype analysis of the Kennedy family and the personality and health profiles interested me most. I would like to see more of this research, as it can only enhance our understanding of ourselves in relation to our world and fellow humans.
Having read The Answer is in Your Bloodtype, and Eat Right 4 Your Type, and by reading reviews, I sense hostility between the parties. While the author of ER4YT does not endorse The Answer is in Your Bloodtype, he is specifically given credit for his seminal work in the field of blood type and nutrition. So why so much anger. In every field of endeavor individuals build on the shoulders of others. Sabin inproved on Salk to cure polio. And so it is, and should be. The Answer is in Your Bloodtype has significant research that links blood type and life span. This revelation startled me, but as far as my family is concerned, the numbers are accurate. I found the section on the compatibility and non-compatibility of blood types incredibly interesting. I am AB, and a different blood type from my mother, father, and sisters. I now understand why my parents divorced. I understand now how each blood type has different personality profiles and why some blood types work better with others. This book has put a great deal of my life into focus, and for that I am grateful. My hats off to the late Nomi of Japan, the grandfather and pioneer in this body of work. Without him there might never have been a D'Adamo, Weissberg, or Christiano. To all I say Bravo! I hope another book on this subject is written, as I am just fascinated by this subject matter, and want more.
The first 20 minutes were pretty interesting and they may have something with how old bloodtypes live to be and which can eat meat more easily but the rest is just another mans attempt at a diet. You dont need a book to know that the bad tasting stuff is usually the best for you. Funny how that works.
