Dear Dr. Greenfield,
I own the English original of "Eat right for your type". I recently bought a German translation for a friend. The lists of food stuff are not the same. E.g. in the type O beneficial fruit list it has cherries, blueberries and mangoes in addition to figs and plums. Did Dr. D'Adamo change the lists or were the German translators inventive?
Thanks in advance,
The German edition of Eat Right 4 Your Type, published as 4 Blutgruppen - Vier Strategien für ein gesundes Leben was published in hardback in 1998, and then in paperback in January 2001. The later German edition appears to have been updated with the new food lists that were available after new research for the American publication of Live Right 4 Your Type (and English The Eat Right Diet), the Complete Blood Type Encyclopedia, and online in Typebase 4. The American and English editions of Eat Right 4 Your Type have not been updated since they were published. Also read this clarification about differences between the books.
