Dieting Psychology
How many of you believed in this The Blood Type Diet or read the book "Eat Right 4 Your Diet" by Dr. Peter J D'Adamo?

Advocates of this diet suggest that your blood type determines which foods are best for your health. What is The Blood Type Diet? In his book, Dr. Peter claims that the optimal diet for any one individual depends on the person's ABO blood type. He claims that each blood type represents genetic traits of our ancestors, including which diet they evolved to thrive on. This is how each blood type is supposed to eat: Type A: Called the agrarian, or cultivator should have diet rich in plants, and completely free of "toxic" red meat. This closely resembles a vegetarian diet. Type B: Called the nomad should eat plants and most meats (except chicken and pork), and can also eat some dairy. However, they should avoid wheat, corn, lentils, tomatoes and a few other foods. Type AB: Called the enigma can eat seafood, tofu, dairy, beans and grains. They should avoid kidney beans, corn, beef and chicken. Type O: Called the hunter. This is a high-protein diet based largely on meat, fish, poultry, certain fruits and vegetables, but limited in grains, legumes and dairy. It closely resembles the paleo diet. *No Processed food allowed in any of the diet type* - One of the theories that favours this diet is a link between blood type and proteins called Lectins. Lectins are a diverse family of proteins that can bind sugar molecules and are considered to be antinutrients, and may have negative effects on the lining of the gut. According to the blood type diet theory, there are many lectins in the diet that specifically target different ABO blood types. It is claimed that eating the wrong types of lectins could lead to agglutination (clumping together) of red blood cells but as per the research studies it appears that the majority of agglutinating lectins react with all ABO blood types. Hence proved - lectins in the diet are NOT blood-type specific. - One of the observational study of 1,455 young adults, eating a type A diet (lots of fruits and vegetables) was associated with better health markers. But this effect was seen in everyone following the type A diet, not just individuals with type A blood. - From last two decades, none of the studies have been able to prove the direction correlation between blood type and food habits. Hence, this diet strategy also fails to deliver some guaranteed results backed by scientific evidences. Many people get results through this but for some simple reasons: - You changed your eating habits from unhealthy food to healthy food items. You stopped eating processed food - You have limited options to eat in the diet that somehow restrict your calories. - If you will study in detail, most of the blood type diets are either Keto Diet or Low Carb Diet So chose wisely that what do you want to follow: QUANTIFIED DIET or BLOOD TYPE DIET - Have a safe workout - Dr. Aakash Bansal #fittr #bettr #smarttr
