As the meat vs veggie thread blows up I wanted to add a bit of information that no one has posted about. Where our ancient ancestors lived and ate and what type of blood they had, largely affects our own metabolism and health. Depending on your blood type you are predisposed to require more of certain foods, proteins, minerals etc.
The research behind this theory spans a long long time.

Blood Type O

Blood Type O is the oldest blood type in the world (evolved around 40,000 BC), and is traced back to CroMagnon man. People with Blood Type O have the hardiest digestive systems. They are the meat-eaters. Persons with Blood Type O need animal protein for good health, as well as vegetables and fruits. However, carbohydrates should be kept to a minimum, since the Blood Type O person cannot digest carbohydrates very well, especially wheat products containing gluten. This person will do well on a high animal protein, low carbohydrate diet; and, dairy products should be kept to a minimum. Persons with Blood Type O produce a lot of hydrochloric acid in their stomachs, and it is this great abundance of stomach acid that allows them to digest animal protein favorably. And, because their digestive systems already contain a lot of stomach acid, they should avoid drinking coffee, since coffee will cause them to produce even more stomach acid, and this tends to make them prone to peptic ulcers, especially if they are constantly under a great deal of stress. They should drink more green tea, instead of coffee. Persons with Blood Type O tend to have low thyroid and sluggish metabolisms; therefore, they should supply their diets with sea kelp and seafood to obtain natural iodine to stimulate their thyroids. The best exercises for these persons are the vigorous workouts like jogging, power walking, aerobics, weight training, etc. The harder they exercise, the better they will feel. Get the heart rate going, and sweat up a storm to burn calories, alleviate stress and eliminate depression!

Blood Type A

People with Blood Type A evolved from the hunter/meat-eater to the agrarian, and were the farmers and grain gatherers. This blood type evolved between 25,000 and 15,000 bC. They have fragile digestive systems. These people cannot tolerate animal protein well, and should be the proverbial, classic "vegetarian" of the human species. They also are usually lactose intolerant, as well. Persons with Blood Type A should avoid animal protein and dairy products, and would do well with whole grains, legumes, fruits and vegetables. Tofu and Hawaiian Spirulina should become the Blood Type A person's best friends, as these foods contains high-quality vegetable protein! Persons with Blood Type A do not produce enough hydrochloric acid in their stomachs, and that is why they have a difficult time digesting animal protein well. This also gives them a predisposition toward getting stomach cancer, and should never eat smoked or cured meats due to the sodium nitrites in them. Animal protein and dairy products tend to rot and ferment in their digestive tracts, and the toxic bacteria backs up into their tissues and muscles, thereby causing digestive distress. A lack of sufficient hydrochloric acid in their stomachs is another reason that persons with Blood Type A do not absorb Vitamin B12 properly from the foods they eat. Vitamin B12 is normally found in red meat, although B12 is also found in superior vegetable protein foods such as Hawaiian Spirulina, soy products and sea kelp. This inability to absorb Vitamin B12 sufficiently from food tends to make the person with Blood Type A prone to pernicious anemia. Therefore, supplementing the diet with Vitamin B12 is critical. Also recommended is supplementation with digestive enzymes such as betaine, bromelain and papain. Bromelain is derived from pineapple, and assists with the digestion of animal protein. Betaine will help to increase the amount of hydrochloric acid in their stomachs. The best exercise for these persons is not the heavy, vigorous workouts, but more calming, centering exercises like Tai Chi, Hatha Yoga and golfing. These soothing types of exercises will relieve the Blood Type A person's stress in a more beneficial way.

Foods that encourage weight gain - Meat; dairy food; kidney beans; lima beans; wheat (in overabundance); and, of course, sugar and white flour.

Blood Type B

This blood type developed between 15,000 and 10,000 BC. Persons with Blood Type B have tolerant digestive systems, and can tolerate most foods equally well, with some exceptions. They are the lucky ones who can digest all types of foods with ease. However, the foods they should avoid are corn, buckwheat, lentils, peanuts, and sesame seeds, as these foods will tend to make them gain weight. Just like the Type O's, Type B's tend to have a problem with gluten in wheat products and wheat germ, which can cause a drop in their blood sugar levels, causing symptoms of hypoglycemia (low blood sugar). Blood Type B's who want to lose weight should definitely avoid wheat products. These lucky people can handle dairy products okay, compared to the other blood types. However, easy does it; if you consume too many high-calorie dairy products, you will gain weight! If you get hypoglycemia after eating a meal, sipping licorice tea would be beneficial for you. It is not advisable to take licorice supplements, unless under the supervision of a doctor. However, sipping licorice tea is very good.

Foods that encourage weight loss - Green vegetables; red meat such as lamb, mutton and rabbit; liver; turkey; pheasant; eggs/low-fat dairy products, including eggs from chicken; seafood, especially deep ocean fish such as cod and salmon, also flounder, halibut and sole; licorice tea. (Licorice tea is great to sip after a meal, as this will prevent hypoglycemia); soy foods; olive and flaxseed oil; oatmeal; oat bran; millet; rice bran; spelt; puffed rice.

Other foods to avoid

* Corn; lentils; black-eyed peas; garbanzo beans; peanuts; sesame seeds; buckwheat; wheat; and chicken (chicken is bad for the Type B's); shellfish; tomatoes; tofu; artichokes; avocados; olives: black, green, Greek, Spanish; pumpkin; radishes; mung bean sprouts; radish sprouts; tempeh; oils: canola, corn, cottonseed, peanut, safflower, sesame and sunflower; coconuts; persimmons; pomegranates; prickly pears; rhubarb; starfruit; allspice; almond extract; barley malt; cinnamon; cornstarch; corn syrup; plain gelatin; black and white pepper; tapioca; ketchup; hard distilled liquor; seltzer water; all sodas; amaranth; barley; cornflakes; cornmeal; cream of wheat; kamut; kasha; rye; seven-grain; shredded wheat; wheat bran; wheat germ.

Blood Type AB

Very rare, and the gentle offspring of Type A and Type B blood. This blood type has only been around for about 1000 years; a modern adaptation and result of intermingling of disparate groups. Less than 5% of the world's population have Blood Type AB. You combine the best and the worst of Blood Types A and B. Most foods that are bad for the Type A and Type B persons, are also bad for the Type AB person, with the exception of tomatoes. The Blood Type AB person can tolerate tomato lectins well. Like Type A, you do not produce enough hydrochloric stomach acid to digest animal protein well, such as red meat and poultry, yet you do need some animal protein. Therefore, portion size is important, and with less frequency. Be sure to take bromelain, a digestive enzyme derived from pineapple, to assist with the digestion of your animal protein meals. The best meats for you are lamb, mutton, rabbit and turkey. Also, avoid smoked and cured meats.

Foods that encourage weight gain - Red meat; kidney beans; lima beans; seeds; corn; buckwheat; wheat.

Foods that encourage weight loss - Tofu; seafood; dairy; green vegetables; spirulina; sea kelp; pineapple.

Other foods to avoid

* Meat: bacon, beef, ground beef, buffalo, chicken, cornish hen, duck, goose, ham, heart, partridge, pork, veal, venison, quail.

* Cheese: American, blue cheese, brie, butter, buttermilk, Camembert, ice cream, Parmesan, provolone, sherbet, whole milk. Oils: corn, cottonseed oil, safflower, sesame, sunflower.
* Nuts/Seeds: filbert; poppy seeds; pumpkin seeds; sesame butter (tahini); sesame seeds; sunflower butter; sunflower seeds.
* Beans: adzuke, black, fava, garbanzo, kidney, lima; black-eyed peas.
* Cereals: cornflakes; cornmeal; kamut; kasha; corn muffins.
* Grains & Pasta: buckwheat kasha; barley flour; artichoke pasta; soba (buckwheat) noodles.
* Vegetables: artichoke (domestic & Jerusalem); avocado; white & yellow corn; lima beans; black olives; peppers: green, jalapeno, red, yellow; radishes; sprouts: mung bean & radish.

I wiki'd it after I posted, and yeah. First off, apparently the A blood type is the oldest, not O. The guy who made this diet up was evidently inspired by an anthropology book he'd read that was published back in 1950 in which diet was not a focus. His theories (and the diet itself) have been almost universally condemned/debunked by physical anthropologists, clinical dieticians, nutritionists and physicians as lacking in evidenciary support... I don't buy it.



Edit: sorry, here's the wiki link if anyone's interested: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blood_type_...

I am type O and I don't do well with red meats as it tears my stomach up. I do have hypothyroidism disease, but that can just be a commonality in blood types. Oh, and I LOVE LOVE LOVE coffee! I can't give that up :)

I'm an A as well and I think I would go crazy trying to avoid everything on that list. It's quite exhaustive. That's why I linked this to diet fad. It becomes a fad diet when you have to be religious about cutting out certain things you eat and I could see how this could rule someone's life if they followed it to a 'T.'

I'm type O and it fits me to a T! I do have low metabolism and have a slight thyroid problem. I just love meat though! The only thing I don't like about this is that I love wheat bread and I like beans. I don't drink much dairy because I never really liked it in the first place.

I am blood type A and understand the sensitivity of my gut. The history or proof of it does not matter to me, feeling good and understanding what my body needs, it much more important.
I am now fully gluten allergic, started 6 years ago when I was in my 30s, cheese and milk cause havoc too, so do any spicy foods and packaged anything. Banana has always constipated me and at least now I understand why.
My body wants fresh foods.

[deleted account]

I'm A and sorry won't be taking much notice of it as I like quite a few things on the avoid list, like balsamic vinegar, various cheeses and other things on the list. Do they have an adverse on me - no.

Lol that explain why I always feel good when I've gone out for a walk with my kids. I'm an 0 type. I hate coffee. It doesn't agree with me. I've attempted drinking a couple times since having kids to give me an energy boost but I end up pretty sick. Kind of like when you've had a night on the booze which I haven't had in years but the feeling you get when you're hung over and you say you'll never do it again. That's the feeling I get with coffee.

I crap and hurt after dairy products which I loveee so much like ice cream and cheese... I feel not so great after eating pork however I love roast beef and it gives me no problems which means it all make sense. Most of the foods that are on the (do not) eat for o positive were the very foods giving me problems. I've notice that when I eat dairy and white potatoes EVERY ONCE IN AWHILE, I don't feel as bad. Sticking to the dos and don't for my blood type has really made a difference in my health, and I feel GREAT!!!

Loureen I've never tasted coffee either! Just the smell makes me sick. Now coffee beans....yummy smells! But once it's brewed it smells nasty and turns my stomach. Coffee flavored stuff also I hate like ice cream or chocolate etc, if it has that coffee flavor in it I don't like it!

I do eat most things in moderation and am a healthy body weight, not over or under, although I wouldn't mind peeling off some inches but that's excercise related.

I forgot to say before that being Oneg and the whole seafood and iodine thin g sucks for me because i can't have huge amounts of iodine in my diet. CHristmas time i had prawns and i had an allergic reaction. Happens often when i eat seafood. I break out in hives but the last reaction had my throat and face swell up and go bright red and it felt like it was on fire. I like seafood but i hate that i can't eat the good stuff.

There is nothing left in dairy! I do not like coffee but love tea and until recently I wasn't a big red meat eater.

[deleted account]

Pretty acurate from where I'm sitting, type A and I have trouble with anemia so does my family as well as B12 deficiency, etc. Eating bread makes me gain weight like crazy and I have to stick to a low sodium diet (well basically cut it out as much as possible) so yeah it makes sense to me.

April where's your picture? Lol, my email said it was you who responded but now it doesnt show your name or pic.....weird. But I think that's a possibility. Like my dislike for a lot of meats, and I'm an A so maybe I avoid foods I don't tolerate well. And I hate cows milk, so maybe that's my gut instinct telling me to not drink it. But I do indulge in a lot of other dairy.... It's interesting to think about! I definitely don't eat tofu, but maybe I just haven't had it prepared right :)

There are a number of foods on my "avoid" list (I'm O -) that I've actually never tasted, but KNOW I don't like. Ex: I've never tasted coffee in my life but refuse to drink it. Ex: Cereal. I haven't ate cereal since I was a baby in my high chair, picking up cheerios. I can just tell I won't like something by smell. Is anyone else like that? Are there foods you've never tasted but know you won't like? Seriously 95% of the avoid foods are foods I've never let touch my lips in my entire life!!

Holy shit! I'm blood type O negative, I have to avoid all the things I like!! I don't have a thyroid problem but I suspect I have a crap metabolism. But this is true, if I eat fish twice a week and avoid potatoes and bread and pasta I do feel awesome. Coffee gives me diarrhoea and bacon makes me feel shit and I FUCKING LOVE seafood like prawns, scallops, bug, oysters... all of it. But I'm pregnant and crave all those things like cake and mashed potato :(

It kinda does fit. I LOVE read meat well really any kind of meat. I like my carbs but i'm finding that when i eat them, Even the apparently healthy ones, I get sluggish and function slower. I was suprised to read that coliflower and brussle sprouts will make me gain weight. I also struggle with Dairy. I LOVE it as much as i love my meat and yet when i consume it it makes me feel slow and sluggish.
A Lot of this rings true but when something tells me i shouldn't eat Avocado i know it can't be to true.

My husband us O and this seems to fit him amazingly well.
Im an A and I don't think it fits me as well, my digestive system doesn't seem fragile, I never get acid reflux, constipated, diarrhea, etc. I'm not lactose intolerant although I despise the taste of cows milk I eat a large amount of dairy, like cheese, yogurt, cottage cheese, ice cream, and more. I'm not a big meat eater, so maybe that's because I don't disest it well, but eating meat doesn't seem to upset my gut or anything, I just don't crave it much.

Chances are actually 50% with each child, and since it's a severe defect even in girls for the form it appears we have, the only good thing is that our first kids didn't have it. Stats are pretty horrid for it - the 50% of kids get it with our defect (most defects of OTC the girls are fine), and of the kids that get it, 50% die by age 7 days, 75% by 5 years, none survived into adulthood yet. Cassie is 3 years old and she's doing excellent right now! Her life is far from normal though. Yes, food has taken on a whole different view than I ever could have imagined. Who knew fruits have too much protein to eat? Lol!

Amy Lea, as with everything there are always exceptions to the rule. It is possible for this to hold true for most people. Apparently quite a few right here on coM, but obviously it's not going to work for absolutely everyone.
Do you have a metabolic disorder that makes eating protein potentially fatal?

I'm blood type O (as is my daughter), yet we have to have a high carb, low protein diet to stay healthy, at risk of death with high protein. Gluten is actually not a problem for us, yet it is very much so for our blood type A son, and he's allergic to nearly every single item listed on his group. Also, my thyroid was hyperactive and had to be removed 9 years ago, the opposite problem as what is listed for my blood type group.

It's a very interesting theory, and I have absolutely no doubt there are other contributing factors, and it has to have been researched in regards to where each group tended to live, etc. It's one I haven't seen before and was really hoping for a fit! :)

Me too Lisa, but then I started looking at it more and realized it could be a healthy way for most people to put balance back in their body. It can contribute to weight loss if that is your goal, but it can also simply lead to a healthier lifestyle and a better balanced immune system, better balanced gut flora, digestive enzymes and a change in your spit quality, lol
