Two people I work with have taken the information in this book and put it to use. Both have lost weight and claim to feel much better. Which is why I decided to buy and read it.
The premise seems plausible, but there is no data supporting the conclusions save the author's statement that he has done a particular test on a number of people and found it supports his premise. But nowhere does he explain how he even met the basic principles of scientific research. Book has been around a long time, so it must fill a need gap somewhere.
My blood type is AB+, supposedly the "newest" blood type to appear which combines both the good and bad of types A & B. However, in one individual a good characteristic of A may be a bad characteristic in another. The author points out, correctly, that only 5% of the world's population is AB. Not knowing what the population size of his test subject's are/were, it still seems very unlikely he could have tested a significant number of AB's to draw any meaningful conclusions. Indeed, the chapter treating this blood type rambles.
As a diabetic, I found his information on controlling this disease relative to blood type to be counter to some American Diabetes Association accepted practices. I am not about to jepordize my health care on such little evidence.
Just glancing through the various "diets", there didn't seem to be much difference in them & I didn't think the information was valid enough to spend my time comparing them in detail.
Curious about new slants and thoughts, read on; looking for a tried and true diet, look elsewhere.
