Diet by blood group

Diet by blood group

The blood type diet was first proposed by the American naturopath Peter D'Adamo. The theory of him says that each blood group determines the resistance of the human body to various diseases. There are also useful, neutral and harmful products for each of the 4 main groups. By adhering to an optimal nutritional system, you can lose weight by blood type, increase immunity and significantly strengthen your body.

However, this theory has no scientific proof. It was composed by a naturopath in the opinion of many experienced doctors.

Essence and principles

There are 4 main blood groups in total. Peter D'Adamo divided them as follows:

  1. The first is the oldest, from which all the others have disappeared. He called these people "Hunters". It is owned by about 32% of the world's inhabitants. These people have a strong immune system, there are practically no problems with the gastrointestinal tract. They also tend to have a fast metabolism. However, they find it difficult to rebuild their bodies for new diets. The diet for them should be abundant in meat dishes in order to constantly saturate the body with proteins.
  2. The second - allegedly, appeared at the moment when people began to cultivate the land. Therefore, the owners of this group were called "Farmers". There are about 40% of the world population. These people have adaptive immunity. Quickly gets used to a change of scenery. Common problems of people with this blood group are disorders of the gastrointestinal tract, kidneys, liver and gallbladder. For owners of blood group 2, it is necessary to limit the use of animal fats and increase the amount of vegetable fiber.
  3. The third - its owners took part in the first and second. They are called "Nomads". There are about 20% of these people in the world. Its representatives have strong immunity, but often suffer from problems with the heart and blood vessels. They are characterized by oncological diseases. The diet should be balanced. You cannot refuse something categorically.
  4. The fourth is the rarest and most recent. Its representatives are called "New Peoples". There are no more than 8% of them on the entire planet. Weak gastrointestinal tract, kidney problems, gall bladder, genitourinary system. Various types of cancer are possible. It is necessary to dilute food with seafood and exclude fatty meat.

The principles are based on specific foods for blood groups. The first is characterized by a greater use of heavy foods. These are mainly pork, beef, lamb, veal, chicken.

Representatives of the second need to reduce the consumption of animal fats and proteins, while adding a large amount of greens and greens to the diet.

For the third, you need a mixed meal. The diet should consist of 60% plant food and 40% animal food. They have to be careful about eating foods that contain lactose.

And for the rarest, fourth, there are many restrictions. These people need to reduce the intake of animal and plant foods, diluting the diet with seafood and dairy products.

The diet should be based on those foods that are considered beneficial for a particular blood group. The use of neutrals is also allowed. But the harmful ones must be partly abandoned. If the daily intake of nutrients is chosen correctly, the human body will reach its optimal weight and stop.

This is not a diet in the common sense, but a long-term meal plan. To achieve a significant effect, it must be adhered to for at least 6 months.

pros and cons

As with any long-term dietary change, Peter D'Adam's method has both good and bad sides.


  1. Fractional food. You need to eat at least 5 times a day in small portions. According to most gastroenterologists and nutritionists, this is the optimal regimen.
  2. The ration made for each group has the correct BJU ratio. And thanks to the allowed fruits and vegetables, it makes it balanced.
  3. Most fruits and vegetables should be eaten raw. As a result, the amount of nutrients entering the body increases.
  4. Permissible heat treatment methods are baking, steaming and baking. Using only them, you can restore the work of the gastrointestinal tract.
  5. With no strict bans on any products, you can make your menu more varied.
  6. This diet not only promotes weight loss in people with different blood types, but also reduces the risk of stroke, heart attack, diabetes, and malignancy.

In order for the effect to be more impressive, it must be combined with sports exercises and frequent walks in the fresh air.

Advice! Peter D'Adamo recommends the proposed system not only to people suffering from excess weight, but also to those who have various disorders of the nervous system, problems with the gastrointestinal tract.

However, like any other diet, it has some drawbacks. This is due to the fact that the human body is a unique structure. And what suits someone can be harmful to another.


  1. Scientific lack of confirmation of the proposed theory. It also contradicts modern concepts of dietetics.
  2. If the body lacks vitamins or microelements, Peter D'Adamo recommends replenishing them with the help of biologically active additives (food supplements). This approach has not received approval from most scientists and doctors. This is due to the fact that the effectiveness of food supplements has not been proven, and the indication for their use speaks of the inadequacy of the diet.
  3. There is no guarantee that a person will be able to lose weight.

Cooking methods

When cooking, you have to follow a rule: the more water you pour and the longer you cook, the less nutrients you get after cooking.

During cooking, it is necessary to replace a tray under the cooking plate, into which the fat will be drained. Thus, you can significantly reduce its calorie content.
