I have a friend who lost alot of weight following "The Blood Type Diet". I had never heard of it before, but she had great success so I thought I would share it.

What You Can Eat on This Diet What you can eat -- and how you exercise -- on this diet depends on who you are.

If you're blood type O ("for old," as in humanity's oldest blood line) your digestive tract retains the memory of ancient times, says D'Adamo, so you're metabolism will benefit from lean meats, poultry, and fish. You're advised to restrict grains, breads, and legumes, and to enjoy vigorous exercise.

Type A ("for agrarian") flourishes on vegetarian diets, "the inheritance of their more settled and less warlike farmer ancestors," says D'Adamo. The type A diet contains soy proteins, grains, and organic vegetables and encourages gentle exercise.

The nomadic blood type B has a tolerant digestive system and can enjoy low-fat dairy, meat, and produce but, among other things, should avoid wheat, corn, and lentils, D'Adamo says.
If you're type B, it's recommended you exercise moderately.

The "modern" blood type AB has a sensitive digestive tract and should avoid chicken, beef, and pork but enjoy seafood, tofu, dairy, and most produce. The fitness regimen for ABs is calming exercises.

Here is a link for a food list compatible for each blood type:

This is very interesting...thanks for the thread. My blood type is O-positive....from what I have read I should focus mainly on protein and vegetables. I need to drop 30 pounds....I am going to give this a try along with exercise and hopefully I will be slimmer by next year!

This a load of B.S. Link some peer reviewed studies that support the "eat right for your type" diet and then we'll talk.
