Blood Types, Body Types and You by Joseph Christiano ND, CNC, explains how to eat food to match your own blood type. This information is critical because eating incompatible foods will disturb the speed and efficiency of the metabolism.

Our bodies get the required energy from food through normal functioning of our metabolism. The chemical reactions in the body’s cells convert the fuel from food into energy required to perform every kind of activity. Metabolic disorders involve abnormal chemical reactions in the body’s cells.

Most disorders of metabolism are an outgrowth of either abnormal levels of enzymes or hormones. When the metabolism of body chemicals is defective, a buildup of toxins in the body may be the result. Christiano explains in detail how to modulate the metabolism so that it performs optimally.

For instance, Blood Type “A” individuals need to eat foods like
lentils, salmon, broccoli, escarole, cranberry, celery juice and chamomile. Foods to avoid are beef, crab, American cheese, eggplants, banana, wheat germ, orange juice and beer. Eating these foods will interfere with normal metabolic functioning. Similar explanations are provided for the remaining blood types.

There are specific actions recommended; such as having 10 ounces of water with squeezed lemon at breakfast. Eating three hours before bed is not allowed. Digestive enzymes should be consumed with each meal. Christiano recommends drinking one half the amount of water in ounces corresponding to your weight. For example, a 200 pound person needs to consume 100 ounces of water or about 12 glasses daily.

Phasing in exercise and weight training is another important part of the daily routine. Christiano provides examples of how to accomplish this task. In addition, the evolution of lean muscle through diet and exercise facilitates permanent weight loss. Another portion of the book explains how body type impacts the required daily regimen.

Readers are encouraged to avoid refined foods and white sugar. A minimum of 30 grams of soluble fiber must be consumed each day to facilitate the discharge of poisonous toxins in the body. The advice is sound, although the details in implementation should be discussed with your physician and other medical providers; such as nutritionists. The presentation is easy to read and understand.
