Blood Type Eating "O"

Posted by stinger99 @stinger99, Jan 5 11:20am

Considering trying this but there are a few "why is that an issue for my blood type" related to "how the heck will I live without that" mostly in the spices are

Cinnamon…This stuff is like a drug to me ill use it in anything it fits. I have seen mention of it being shunned a bit for diabetics as it may lower sugar too far but nothing else as to why a Type O should avoid it.

Black/White Pepper…this is my salt! I no salt everything always pepper, even popcorn when I have it.

A bit worrisome about peanuts, my go to snack is peanuts at work and at home my "snickers" is celery and peanut butter…every day.

Just cant find reasons "why" these are considered "avoid" for Type O

This theory of eating by blood types has been out since 1996 when a naturopathic doctor developed a theory where he claims that each blood type represents genetic traits of our ancestors, including which diet they evolved to thrive on. So eating foods certain foods not inherent to your genetic make up potentially creates issues and affects health.

An excerpt from a website I found:
“One of the central theories of the blood type diet has to do with proteins called lectins.
Lectins are a diverse family of proteins that can bind sugar molecules.
These substances are considered to be antinutrients, and may have negative effects on the lining of the gut (1Trusted Source).”
After reading several articles about Dr Dr. Peter D’Adamo diet, while a lot of it makes some sense in eating clean and healthy diets, frankly I’d be starving to death because I would be limited to just a couple items. My blood type switched from B positive to O Positive after a bone marrow transplant. So color me confused. 😂. I would have no idea what to eat because I have 2 sets of DNA and food that’s good for one isn’t good for the other.

In reality, ask yourself how do you feel? Are you healthy? Active? Energetic? Skin clear? Heart good? If you’re diabetic, are your sugar numbers under control?
You’re obviously health conscious and trying to make good decisions about your foods. I feel you should be complimented for eating healthy snacks like peanut butter and celery!

If you like peanuts and this is your go to snack, personally, I’d keep eating them. They’re a great source of healthy fats and fiber. “Heart Healthy” and a good option for people with diabetes because they’re low on the glycemic index.

I know you love cinnamon and too much of a good thing can be harmful as with any herb or spice. There are several types of cinnamon and I found an article that covers the different varieties and also the amounts safe to consume. It is good for lowering blood sugar but you’re right in not overdoing it.
Frankly, I’m just happy to be alive and kicking. So I eat things I enjoy in moderation while being mindful of a healthy diet and good nutrition. If you try the diet, let me know!
