Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

If you've ever wondered why the latest fad diet doesn't work for you... well, there are lots of reasons, mostly the fact that it's a fad diet. But it could also be that you're the wrong blood type for the kinds of foods the diet recommends. Peter D'Adamo makes a persuasive argument that your blood type is an evolutionary marker that tells you which foods you'll process best, and which will be useless calories. He covers the entire range for each of the four blood types, from entrées to condiments and seasonings, and also makes type-specific exercise and lifestyle recommendations.

From Booklist

As recently as five years ago, any talk about the healing powers of alternative medicine would have produced considerable scoffing. Today, many patients of alternative practitioners can relate at least one true curative tale. The time is ripe, then, for naturopathic physician-researcher D'Adamo to promote his family's two-generation investigation into the alliance between blood type, diet, exercise, and health. His premise is that the four blood types--O, A, B, and AB--are the key to our immune systems. There is a strong and proven chemical reaction, positive or negative, between blood type and the foods one eats. Each type, he (and his coauthor) says, requires its own diet, exercise, and meal plans; vitamin supplements; and personality profile. For instance, type AB, the rarest, has a sensitive digestive tract but the friendliest immune system of the four. Furthermore, there is a documented link between blood type and risk for disease. Once the publicity machine starts, expect users to queue up to borrow this title. Barbara Jacobs

Two of us have been following this plan for over 1.5 years. My partner lost about 20 pounds in the first few months, without counting portions or calories, and has maintained his ideal weight without effort. His energy returned to a level not experienced for several years - one of the keys was putting MODERATE amounts of organic beef back into his diet. Eliminating wheat, dairy products and foods with problematic lectins, while emphasizing beneficial foods such as leafy dark-green vegetables also helped. Since he's Type O and I'm Type A, the protein part of our diets differs somewhat, but we've quite easily found ways to cook together. We both noticed much clearer sinuses after just a week. He eliminated asthma symptoms and my allergies improved. I no longer suffer from PMS. I lived with knee problems since childhood, but these have now disappeared, as did the stiffness in my fingers and back in the morning. Digestive problems and stomach aches, a major problem for me since childhood, eased greatly in the first couple of months and are still improving. My complexion cleared and my heart stopped "skipping beats" - I could go on and on.
I have been interested in nutrition and have kept abreast of various schools of thought for the last 25 years. When I first heard of Eat Right I dismissed it as a fad diet that was not based on scientific evidence. Before reading Eat Right I consumed what I believed were "healthy" foods for many years: whole grains, little or no meat, lots of fresh vegetables, fruit, legumes, "good" fats, spring water. Very few additives, prepared or fast foods or medications. However, some foods that were healthy according to the literature and research were healthy for other blood types but not for Type A.

I have to disagree with the customer review that stated that this book was just another way of saying, "Eat better and exercise, and you'll lose weight." I have type O blood, and one of the many helpful recommendations Dr. D'Adamo gives is for type O's to avoid wheat, which is quite contrary to most health recommendations. I've tried all my life to eat whole wheat products because health experts recommend it. Little did I know how hindering it was to my body and my weight loss efforts to eat wheat. I also found that not all people benefit from strenuous exercise. For some blood types, yoga and tai chi can be more beneficial than strenuous aerobics. The whole point of this book is that people cannot follow the same diets and exercise programs to get the same results, and I completely agree. If this wasn't true, people who are trying to follow traditional health recommendations for exercise and eating wouldn't be finding themselves overweight and unhealthy, despite their efforts. I strongly recommend this book to anyone who is trying to lose weight, reduce stress, and increase their overall health. I have lost weight, but more than that, I am more healthy than I've ever been in my life. I don't believe Dr. D'Adamo would have done such strenuous research, nor would people be doing so well on the diet, if it was just another way of telling people to eat right and exercise.

While working in a health food store in Wichita, Kansas about a year and a half ago, I was exposed to Dr.D'Adamo's book. It took me a while to decide to take small bited of his recommended diet for my blood type. Quit frankly it seemed to me that I would have to give up every food I liked, and that staying on this program was a jail sentence which I was most likely to abort in a few short days. The theory made a lot of sense, but after many years of "yo-yo" dieting, I must admit I thought this was just the latest diet fad. I felt that I needed to do something about the way I was feeling both physically, and emotionally. I decided to make some suggested changes a bit at a time, finding at one point that I was ready to make a full commitment to the doctors advice, as I had started to feel better, and wanted to see if what I was experiencing could possibly get even better. I went to my family doctor who agreed to support me in my efforts, after she agreed to read the book! She took base line blood work,checked my vital signs, including a physical. She found that my blood pressure was too high, my triglyceride level was unacceptable, cholesterol was elevated, and my energy level was extremely low. I had complaints of leg cramps, fatigue,irritable bowel syndrome,depression,and carbohydrate cravings. I had also put on over 50 pounds in the past 3 years. Being 50 years old I was also struggling with postmenopausal symptoms. After 20 weeks of following Dr. D'Adamo's suggestions many of my symptoms subsided, and much to my delight I have dropped 27 pounds. I am even more motivated to continue my eating life style changes due to the drastic changes I have obtained. I highly recommend for anyone to explore this wonderful perscription for staying healthy, and see what taking control of your life feels like. The rewards are well worth the personal commitment toward living longer and, having the quality of life that makes you want to face every new day.

Twentyone years ago, my father died from a heart attack. Nine years ago, hoping to avoid that fate, I became a vegetarian. Four years ago, I developed a potentially fatal auto-immune disease called pemphigus (my immune system attacks my skin). Note, at this time, I was eating a primarily organic, whole foods, grain based, vegetarian diet.
As close as I came to dying, I thought that had I been eating meat, I'd be sicker. After being hospitalized, given 180mg/day Prednisonal, and released, I spent the next year and a half trying numerous traditional medicine and naturopathic medicine based treatments. These expensive treatments included visits and prescriptions from noteable professors of Chinese Medicine, Aryuveda, traditional Naturopathy @ Portland Naturopathic Clinic, etc. All this time, I stayed vegetarian, all this time I remained on 30-40mg per day of Prednisone. I underwent allergy tests, hair analysis, numerous blood tests. I eventually became a raw foods vegetarian. I got sicker.
In short, I was doing everything right, based on numerous scientific studies, and I was getting sicker.
Since there is very little research done on Pemphigus, I was forced to read about other autoimmune diseases. A common manifestation of chronic diseases is a phenomenon known as "blood sludge," or erethrocyte aggregation. Simply put, the red blood cells clump together, as if they are stuck together with velcro.
It was noted, by one of my doctors, that I too, exhibited this phenomenon. We/He did not know what to do about it.
Two months later, I read Eat Right 4 Your Type. Dr. D'Adamo explains why "blood sludge" happens, and explains why it is food choice that causes it to happen.
