Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Diet schemes come and go. Successful plans, backed by powerful media machines, become bestsellers with sequels and food-product lines. But with so many diet books on the market, how do you decide which plan is right for you? According to Peter D'Adamo, the answer depends on your blood type. In his first book, Eat Right 4 Your Type, D'Adamo, a naturopathic physician and researcher, makes interesting and unique connections between human evolution, blood type, diet, exercise, and health. Now, in Cook Right 4 Your Type: The Practical Kitchen Companion to Eat Right 4 Your Type, D'Adamo provides readers with:
  • Road maps and charts for each of the four blood types, detailing which foods and beverages to consume and which to avoid
  • Tips for starting and sticking with the diet and matching your menu to your blood type
  • Thirty-day meal plans to help you stay healthy, live longer, and achieve your ideal weight
  • More than 200 healthy and easy recipes keyed to blood type
While D'Adamo's theories challenge common nutrition wisdom and his diet can be difficult to follow, Cook Right 4 Your Type will make his advice a little easier to swallow. --Ellen Albertson --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From Publishers Weekly

Should people's blood types dictate the kinds of food they eat? Naturopathic physician D'Adamo thinks so, and, in the first section of his follow-up to l997's Eat Right 4 Your Type, he outlines his reasons and offers a diet plan with recipes. "Certain foods complement certain blood types," he writes. "Other foods antagonize and debilitate" them. He believes that meat is good for people with blood type O, whose ancestors were Cro-Magnon hunters; vegetarianism suits type As, who descended from agrarians. Type Bs (once nomads) should emphasize meat with a few vegetables and fruits; ABs ought to do just the reverse. Clearly organized tables outline food requirements for each type. The recipes range from main courses to desserts and include information indicating how beneficial the dishes are for each blood type. While some of the selections are appetizing (Veal Stew with Fennel; Pineapple Upside-Down Cake) many of the recipes?due to dietary limitations?are uninspired and call for very specific quantities and types of ingredients (kelp powder lurks in the Great Meat Loaf and spelt flour is called for in baked goods). The last section provides 30-day menu plans for each blood type and mail-order sources for hard-to-find ingredients.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I dug out my copy of Peter D'Adamo's ER4YT after being told to embrace the diet by my health care practitioner. I admit to being skeptical at first, the idea of blood type having anything to do with what you ate, how you felt and what kind of personality you had seemed a bit far-fetched. I also wondered how I would adapt to the largely unavailable whole grains and Omega-3 rich fish that I was supposed to be eating. Unfortunately, I live in an area where whole foods are considered extravagently obsessive and seafood means shrimp and crawfish, both no-nos for me on this dieting plan. My shopping is now limited to a once a week foray into the city to the only Whole Food Market in the entire metro area! Nonetheless, I find the on-going results positive. I am eating lots of fruit, fish, the occasional chicken and turkey enhanced by lots of soy products. I have even begun juicing again, taking my juicer down from the supply closet where it was placed when I was in my low-carb phase. I have discovered Ezekial bread which makes a fantastic toast which I admit to pathetically dreaming about while I exercise prior to eating.
I purchased this book to supplement my rather scant knowledge of vegetarian and whole food cuisine and have found it more than adequate. Each food group is represented by recipes that are specifically labeled as A, B, O or AB friendly. In addition, there are specific A,B,O or AB ingredients added or removed in certain recipes to make them extra friendly to your type--a nice lagnaippe! I have subtracted a star only because it does not have as many fish recipes as I would like!
Best of all,I find that I have not tested any of the snack or dessert recipes.

Turned 70 in July. Started Eating for Blood Type in August when I started seeing Naturopathic Physicians and startead getting treatments. Am taking 7 less medications, body is no longer swollen, have no more stomach pains (unless I eat something I should not eat) have more energy, and am losing weight. I also enjoy what I am eating. Why didn't I listen to my son earlier?

This book finally explains why a diet that works great for one person can spell disaster for another. What can be more specific than our own bloodtype! I love both books and the recipes are some of the best I have ever eaten. I am not only losing weight, but have a lot more energy. My sister, a former Stage IV Glioblastoma patient (a large lemon-size brain tumor; IV being the worst) is now a 2yr. survivor with no new tumor growth and only slight visible necrosis (dying tissue). She was given 3-8mos.to live; but part of her treatment included following very closely to her blood type diet.Now, I'm not suggesting it was diet alone that kept the cancer at bay, but it made for a much more cooperative climate to heal in. Cancer thrives on sugar.....Are we talking about results here? Her Doctors are still picking their jaws off the floor! This is something her Nutritional Consultant felt VERY STRONGLY about. For the skeptics, and those perhaps a little fearful of the unknown, all I can say is read, read, read the book and other books out there that link so many of our modern day health problems to the food we put into our bodies. A final note...Fat is not the real culprit!

Format: Hardcover
This book is an excellent companion to the original "Eat Right 4 Your Type" book by D'Adamo (see my review on that book here on Amazon.) It contains a review of some of the material from the original book, and then branches out to include a ton of recipes. Each recipe specifies whether it is beneficial, neutral, or to be avoided by each blood type, making it easy to plan meals for one or more types.
The book has a whole range of recipes, from breads to main dishes, sauces to desserts, salads to beverages. There are 30 day menu plans for each blood type, with suggested meals and snacks. There's even a list in the back of mail order sources for various foods some people may have trouble finding in their areas.
All in all this book is a great adjunct to the previous book, and well worth buying for those who follow this health plan. If you're using the first book, don't hesitate to buy this book!

Format: Paperback
If you are not familiar with these books, the first place to start would be with "Eat Right 4 Your Type" - a terrific book. In that book, you will first begin to understand the relatioship between your blood type (A, B, AB and O) and what you eat. When I first heard of this new concept of eating over a year ago, I was a little doubtful. This is not a "diet", it is a way of eating healthy that is just right for you based on your blood type. If you stick with the guidelines on which foods are good for you and which ones you should avoid, you will be amazed at the results. Do not expect to see results overnight. How soon you will actually see and feel the difference will depend on how faithfully you follow the guidelines, and for how long.
In this book are some of the most unique recipes ever found anywhere. However, in all honesty, I think you truly need to be somewhat of a "die-hard-health-conscious fan" to truly enjoy, and stick with, some of these recipes. For me, eating healthy is a number one priority, so the transition to this style of eating was just a minor modification to my regular diet, especially when meat always left me feeling weighted down and tired in the first place. I would never in a million years even consider going back to the red meats that for my blood type are a definite no-no. That is not to say, YOU, should not be eating red meats, it will all depend on your blood type, so do not make the mistake in thinking everyone has to give up eating meat.
The results of eating the right foods for your blood type, and avoiding the ones you definitely should not be eating is amazing. I highly recommend this book as a companion for "Eat Right 4 Your Type"; they go hand-in-hand.
