WHY IT IS IMPORTANT TO EAT ACCORDING TO YOUR BLOOD TYPE
It is said that eating according to your blood type can help you get slim and fight off disease. The food you eat reacts chemically with your blood type and the incorrect reaction can cause inflammation and discomfort in your body. Eating foods with lectins (a type of protein) that are not compatible with your blood type can cause blood cell clumping and can result in health problems such as kidney disease, heart issues, hypertension, and diabetes — and that it can also cause weight gain and difficulty losing weight.
Inflammation is connected to quite a few diet and lifestyle factors. By making some changes in these areas, you can reduce inflammation in the body, lower your risk of disease, and help your body shed excess weight.
Here is how to eat according to your blood type to help reduce inflammation.
TYPE A : People with type A blood are more prone to heart disease, cancer and diabetes and a meat free diet is suggested. Load up on fruits and vegetables, beans, legumes and whole grains for optimum health.
TYPE B : People with type B blood are more susceptible to autoimmune disorders, such as chronic fatigue, lupus, and multiple sclerosis. They however, do have a robust immune system and a tolerant digestive system. It is best to avoid corn, wheat, buckwheat, lentils, tomatoes, peanuts, and sesame seeds. Chicken can also be problematic. Eating green vegetables, eggs, certain meats, and low-fat dairy are good choices.
TYPE AB : People with type AB blood tend to have lower rates of allergies, but heart disease, cancer, and anemia are common. Foods to focus on include tofu, seafood, dairy, and green vegetables. People with type AB blood tend to have low stomach acid so it is best to avoid caffeine, alcohol, and smoked or cured meats.
TYPE O: People with type O blood tend to suffer with tummy issues as well as hayfever, asthma and other allergies. Type O do best with animal proteins, while dairy products and grains may cause problems. Gluten, lentils, kidney beans, corn, and cabbage can lead to weight gain in people with this blood type.
It is an easy change to make to eat according to your blood type and will change the way your body feels and looks.
