  • Blood Type Diet

    Has anyone done a comparison between the Primal Diet and the Blood Type diet? They seem to come from the same basic ideas, however, Dr. D'Adamo seems to differ on what foods to avoid, one being coconut ... so I was wondering if anyone else had seen the same thing I did ......

    Not this malarky again. The blood type diet is hogwash, pure and simple. No, I am not going to look up the links for you.

      have you tried the zodiac diet?
      As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.

        What about the poodle diet? How many poodles should one eat in one sitting?
        Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

            I eat according to my blood type, which is red. So I eat red meat, washed down with red wine. Sometimes have red salmon. Maybe strawberries for dessert. It works for me.

                according to this diet, I, as an A-, should thrive as a vegetarian, well, been there, did that, can tell you, no it's crap. Beans mess up my tummy more than meat.

                  The "Blood Type Diet" is not credible. It's woo.
                  Primal/Paleo is not for everyone, it's for those who have committed to understand.
                  READ THE BOOK! ...as Robb Wolf says: "Trying to convince people to save their own ass will burn you out."

                    wow, I see I kicked a hornets nest :-)
                    I had a feeling there was issues with this - so I thought to ask. and as for - "not this crap again" I've just been trying to find the right type of diet for me and seeing as I'm new to this whole "primal thing" I was just wondering what other people had found.

                    so hopefully making the life style change will allow me to reach a personal goal of Dead Lifting over 400lbs. I hit the 375 mark and then hit a wall......can't get past it, so my trainer and I started researching what could be causing the issue. To that end, we found both the primal living and the zhealth system (which is also very, very cool) -something everyone should check out....

                    so thank you to everyone who replied - your info has been very helpful :-)

                      We didn't mean to make you feel ganged up on, anna. It's just that this subject is like a bad penny that keeps on turning up every so often. There is a lot of junk science out there on the webz and you have to be careful where you get your info.

                      Welcome to Primal.

                          At least you know everyone here supports primal. If you find a forum that supports blood type diet, I would be interested to see what they say. This is backed by science.

                              B.S. just like low carb and sugar, eh?

                              My mom is pretty into eating 4 her type. Luckily, she is O, so most of the 'good, allowable' foods tend to be healthier stuff in general like red/game meats and vegetables, and it did get her to cut down on pasta and other wheat products and some other nasties that she used to like. That being said, she's not militant about it, and I see it as as okay thing that makes her feel good, even if it's kind of bunk.

                              I think any eating style, when done with thought and moderation can be fine. Ultimately, it's all about choosing quality stuff, whether it's the care that's put into soaking and fermenting sourdough bread or sourcing pastured liver.
