Shows how the evolution of Bl. Types A, B and AB from the original human hunter/gatherer blood type O coincided with the agricultural revolution and nomadic migrations of human prehistory. Makes the case for four different diets and exercise regimens based on blood type, showing how the diets can be used to bring about or enhance curative measures taken for common diseases. Clearly written and persuasive.
This is an interesting take on food choices. It details the foods that one should or should not eat, based on their blood type. D'Adamo believes that our digestion/calorie usage is based on evolution and the dietary choices available as blood types evolved - so, for example, if you're an O blood type, your genetics are 10s of thousands of years old, so your diet should be bases on the food-types that would have been available at the time of O's evolution.It's all very logical. As you read it, it'll make great sense.But... there is no evidence/proof of his hypotheses. He sounds completely sensible (and maybe he is), but there is no body of proof from any other sources that support his conclusions.
I was intrigued by the idea that your blood type determines your diet type. I read this book before I knew my blood type and was convinced I was an A . Turns out I am an O . I thought it was especially interesting that the O diet was heavy on red meat. I'm a vegetarian and have been for more than half of my life. I wouldn't change my diet to include red meat.
