Eat Right For Your Type: The Individualized Diet Solution is rated 4.1667 out of 5 by 12.
"What would you say if I told you that the secret to healthy, vigorous, and disease-free living might be as simple as knowing your blood type," ask Dr. Peter D''Adamo and Catherine Whitney, and in Eat Right 4 Your Type, they shows us the simple answer.

If you''ve ever suspected that not everyone should eat the same thing or do the same exercise, you''re right. In fact, what foods we absorb well and how our bodies handle stress differ with each blood type.

Your blood type reflects your internal chemistry. It is the key that unlocks the mysteries of disease, longevity, fitness, and emotional strength. It determines your susceptibility to illness, the foods you should eat, and ways to avoid the most troubling health problems.

Only recently have all the pieces of the scientific and clinical puzzle started coming together. Dr. D''Adamo has spent the past fifteen years researching the connections among blood type and exercise, food, and disease, and his research is built on thirty years of work done by his father.

In Eat Right 4 Your Type he shows:
which foods, spices, teas, and condiments help someone of your blood type maintain optimal health and ideal weight;
which vitamins and supplements to emphasize or avoid;
which medications function best in your system;
whether your stress goes to your muscles or your nervous system;
whether your stress is relieved better through aerobics or meditation;
whether you should walk, swim or play tennis or golf as your mode of exercise;
how knowing your blood type can help you avoid many common viruses and infections;
how knowing your blood type can help you fight back against life-threatening diseases;
how to slow down the aging process by avoiding factors specific to your blood type that cause rapid cell deterioration.

Eat Right 4 Your Type provides a clear, simple life plan that anyone can follow and suggests the easiest ways to determine your blood type and diet for your blood type. Here is a breakthrough book that will change the way we eat and live.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A book that embraces individuality! This is probably one of the greatest, if not the greatest, health book written.  I like how D'Adamo points out that we're not all the same.  I am so sick and tired of these "it works for all" diet fads when we're all clearly not the same. What may work for you, may not work for me.  We should all accept that truth that we're not all the same. I also appreciate the natural remedies he mentions and the recipes he shares in this book. D'Adamo really captured Hippocrates' saying "let food be thy medicine and let thy medicine be food."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Great i just eliminated the poisonous foods for my blood type and i really feel very great when concern to my health . i can feel to have lots of energy . but i didnot lose weight . i think by avoiding the unwanted foods and start dieting and exercise in a very slow rate may work for me . But when concern to health , this book is very much recommened to all and thanxs to the author and co author for their works . i personally feel that this book is a gift for the public rather than the business for the author

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Informative and Accurate This book totally changed my health and lifestyle.....by following the eating instructions for the foods/beverages for each type, not by following the diet, my system seemed to clense themselves. I lost weight. I gained strength. I feel and act like I am 20 years younger.By eliminating those foods not good for my system, I have been able to walk further, sleep better, enjoy life to the fullest. The receipes inside are easy to prepare and taste great. This book is a must for anyone of any age that really wants to improve one's health without going on super diets or undertaking alot of exercise.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from An intresting and innovative read D'adamo is an author who put a lot into his research. The blood-type diet works for many but can also have no effect on others. If you have been struggling health problems and believe they are diet related- then this book is a great read. It is full of scientific information that comes from a good source and the research in it is very valuable. I recommend this book to any therapist who is widening their horizons in terms of nutrition. Definitely a must have in your clinic- it can only help better your client's overall health. All in all- buy it. It's worth it and cheap for the type of information you'll get out of it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eat Right for Your Type Although I did find this Book an especially innovative approach to optimizing health, it raised as many questions as gave answers; though my own blood type is 'O', I relate minimally to the charactaristics of that blood type in every category covered in the book, whereas I seem to be a perfect match for the type 'B' characteristics in every way; this has led me to wonder whether there are any exceptions to the models presented, or could it be possible that an individual having inherited one blood type by recessive gene, leaving the other dormant, could experience activation of the latter through, for example, the process of auto-immune illness. I would be anxious to have the authors comment on such possibilities.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Eat Right 4 Your Type If you'd like to feel your optimum best, I recommend you both read this book and try the diet according to your blood type. This book offers astounding facts concerning what does and doesn't agree with you blood type, along with practical explanations, information, and recipes. You will be surprised to find the many unhealthy symptoms that you have been struggling with are the cause of a biological disagreement. I encourage you to buy this book today.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Eat Right for Your Type Utterly ludicrous. Yet another snake oil salesman out to bilk the gullible masses.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bunk! Self-help pseudo-medicine. I found the whole premise to be ridiculous.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eat Right For Your Type What a great and helpful book! I am not overweight but I have always seemed to have one upset stomach after another and often just felt tired and run down. The very day after I bought the book I began to feel better because I learned that people of my blood type can not easily digest wheat. What a difference that one little piece of information has made! I feel great now, every day; and have lots of energy. I am recommending this book to everyone I know. Read it, you will be amazed at the difference in your health!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This book changed my life! After being diagnosed with cancer at the age of 21 I was thrusted into a world of confusion and helplessness. No conventional doctor could give an explanation as to why or how I developed cervical cancer. This book was recommended to me by my naturopath and it has been a god-send. The authors of this book gave testimonies as well as medical explanations backing their theories of the blood-type diet. 5 pages into the book illnesses and symptoms of the past began to make sense. I'm overweight because I used to eat a lot of meat and my body can't properly digest it so it stored it. I also drank dairy products and my blood type produces an antigen for a property in milk, so it was like feeding my body infection. Since I started eating for my type I've felt energized and alive. It's like eating PURE fuel for my body. There's no snacking in between meals because my body had enough energy from my meal. This diet is a life change, not like modern day "diets" like Weight Watchers that never work. You'll feel the difference and never want to go back to eating poison.
