 Dietary Foods for People with the Blood Type O

Despite what the weight-loss industry would have you believe, dieting is all about determining which eating style best suits your physiology. One system that tries to do this is the Blood Type Diet. Eat Right 4 Your Type, by naturopathic physician Peter J. D'Ada mo, is based on the idea that you have a unique genetic makeup that predisposes you to certain chronic diseases and conditions. D'Ada mo believes that people can live healthier lives by eating and exercising in a way that is appropriate for their blood type.

The O positive blood type diet of D'Ada mo emphasizes lean organic meats, fruits, and vegetables while avoiding dairy, wheat, alcohol, and caffeine. However, your blood type is just one aspect of your biological makeup. Even if you are type O positive, you should seek medical advice before embarking on a new diet, especially if you have any underlying health issues.


What Is the Blood Type Diet, and How Does It Work?

To begin with, there are eight different blood types, which are determined by the presence or absence of specific markers on your red blood cells. Based on whether you have A markers, B markers, both, or neither, you can have type A, B, AB, or O blood. Furthermore, if Rh is present (or not), you can have Rh positive or negative blood. A+, A-, B+, B-, AB+, AB-, O+, or O- are the eight blood types. To figure out what type you are, you'll need a blood test.

However, D'Adamo's program only addresses the four most common blood types: A, B, AB, and O. To each, he offers the following advice:

  • Choose a healthy, organic vegetarian diet if you are a blood type A.
  • Corn, wheat, buckwheat, lentils, tomatoes, peanuts, sesame seeds, and chicken are all foods to avoid if you are a blood type B. (opting for goat, lamb, mutton, rabbit and venison instead)
  • Diet for Blood Type AB: combine the A and B groups' advice.
  • Focus on animal proteins and stay away from dairy, gluten, lentils, and corn if you have blood type O.


People with Type O Blood Have the Following Characteristics

Blood type O ancestors were known to be aggressive predators in the past. As a result, according to D'Ada mo, today's type Os are energetic extroverts and leaders with a keen ability to focus. When stressed, however, blood type Os are prone to rage, hyperactivity, and impulsiveness, according to D'Ada mo.

Type Os may experience negative metabolic effects such as insulin resistance, hypothyroidism, and weight gain if this leads to poor diet, lack of exercise, and other unhealthy behaviors. Type Os are also more susceptible to certain illnesses, such as ulcers and thyroid issues.

They can digest meals containing both protein and fat more easily than other blood types due to their tendency for higher stomach acid levels. Simple carbohydrates (especially from grains) are more easily converted into fats and triglycerides as a result of this.


Dietary Suggestions for O Blood Type

D'Adamo recommends the following food groups for an O blood type diet based on the above characteristics and the risk of chronic illnesses.


1. Load up on protein

Type A high-protein diet of lean, organic meats is ideal for os. Protein sources that are best for blood type O diets include:

  • Beef \sLamb \sMutton \sVeal \sVenison \sCod \sHerring \sMackerel
  • Meat is easily digested and metabolized by blood type Os, so vegetarian diets are not recommended. Seafood, which is high in iodine, is good for type Os because it helps to regulate thyroid function.

Blood type Os can eat almost any meat, fish, or seafood, with the exception of:

  • Pickled herring Bacon Ham Pork Goose Barracuda Catfish
  • Octopus Conch Smoked Salmon Caviar


2. Select Vegetables With Care

People with type O blood, according to D'Adamo's blood type O diet, must be very selective about the vegetables they consume, as not all of them are beneficial. The following are some of the best vegetables for type Os:

  • Collard greens (kale)
  • Romaine lettuce with broccoli
  • Spinach \sArtichokes
  • Chicory \sDandelion
  • Garlic
  • Horseradish \sLeeks
  • Okra \sOnions
  • Parsley \sParsnips
  • peppers (red)
  • Sweet potatoes are a type of potato that is used
  • Pumpkin
  • Seaweed
  • Turnips


Vitamin K is found in green, leafy vegetables like kale and collard greens, and it aids in blood clotting. Because type Os are deficient in certain clotting factors, this is beneficial.

Type Os, on the other hand, should avoid certain vegetables, such as:

  • Mustard leaves
  • Cabbage
  • Cauliflower
  • Brussels sprouts (Brussels sprouts)
  • Sprouts of alfalfa
  • Shiitake mushrooms are a type of mushroom.
  • Olives that have been fermented
  • Eggplant \sPotatoes \sCorn

What is the reason for this? Mustard greens, cabbage, and cauliflower can disrupt thyroid function, while Brussels sprouts, alfalfa sprouts, shiitake mushrooms, and fermented olives irritate the digestive tract and exacerbate type O hypersensitivity issues.

In addition, eggplant and potatoes should be avoided because they can cause arthritis in type Os, and corn can affect insulin production, leading to obesity and diabetes in this blood type, according to D'Adamo.


3. Delicious Fruits

Those with type O blood must be cautious about which fruits they consume, just as they must be cautious about which vegetables they consume. According to D'Adamo, the best fruits for type Os are:

  • Plums \sPrunes \sFigs

These help prevent ulcers by balancing the acidity of the digestive tract.

Type Os, on the other hand, should avoid:

  • Melons
  • Cantaloupe
  • Honeydew \sOranges
  • Tangerines
  • Strawberries
  • Blackberries
  • Rhubarb \sCoconut

For type Os, all other fruits are considered neutral, which means you can eat them (or not) depending on your preferences and how they affect you.


4. Type Os Dietary Supplements

Type Os should avoid dairy, eggs, and oils, but they can eat the following foods:

  • Farmer's cheese in butter
  • Feta \sMozzarella
  • Goat's milk cheese
  • Milk made from soy beans
  • Olive oil is a type of oil that comes from
  • Oils made from flaxseed
  • Canola oil is a type of vegetable oil that comes from the
  • Sesame seed oil

Corn, cottonseed, peanut, and safflower oils, on the other hand, should be avoided. Wheat products should also be avoided by people with type O blood. They should instead stick to:

Essene's breads are made with sprouted grains such as amaranth, barley, rice, kamut, millet, rye, and spelt.

The most beneficial nuts and seeds for type Os are pumpkin seeds and walnuts, but any nuts and seeds are allowed except Brazil nuts, cashews, peanuts, pistachios, and poppy seeds.
