Eating to your Blood Group

Thursday, June 30, 2011

I have been doing a bit of reading in regards to dieting according to your blood group. I am interested to see if it really works. I have found a site
e_diet/ that has a table with all the different blood groups you can click on your blood group which will lead you to a page which then gives you details about what is good for you and what to avoid. You can then click on and get a chart with foods in different sections and this is also broken down to what are most beneficial, food allowed and foods to avoid. I found this interesting as things that are healthy but should be avoided by my blood group. I thought I may give this a try as it cant hurt and it may prove helpful. One thing I found out it is good to avoid food that inhibits thyroid hormone (cabbage, brussels sprouts, cauliflower, mustard green) but increase hormone production (kelp, seafood, iodized salt). I like cauliflower and brussel sprouts and eat them regulary but as I have an underactive thyroid I should avoid them. Isn't always the way the food you like is the food you should avoid. I will see how I go emoticon

    I've looked into this as well. I'm a blood type A and have always been big on red meat. Oddly, I've been naturally avoiding it since I started Spark. I'm not trying to eliminate it, and I'm not thinking about it. I'm just naturally eating more fish and leaner meats such as poultry. And even so, I'm not eating much poultry at all. Most of my protein is coming from eggs.

    It might be interesting to have another look into the diet!
