1Your Blood Type and Diet
Some foods contain legumes which have a carbohydrate binding protein called lectin. Lectin has been proven to cause inflammation in the body however certain blood types have strong reactions to the protein. Some examples of what can occur are fatigue, not having good digestion and considerable weight gain. All day long bodies are having constant chemical reactions and depending upon the blood type this can significantly affect weight gain and digestion. Try some of these suggested foods for your blood type. Type O does best with high protein foods such as meat and fish, and avoiding diary. For type A try having a diet with very little or no meat at all and eating lots of vegetables, type B is recommended they eat red meat and avoid chicken, and type AB does best by eating lots of seafood and lean meat.
