The Blood Type Diet – A “Fad Diet” That Just Might Save Your Life
New in Personalized Living Webzine:
Quoted from Dr. Erin Kinney
I remember the first time I read about it: A diet based on the type of blood flowing through my veins? What could that have to do with anything? Well, in actuality the type of blood your heart has been pumping all your life could dictate which foods will decrease your risk for heart disease. In fact, your blood type and its relationship with your body could also be responsible for those extra pounds you can’t seem to lose.
While some criticize the blood type diet, calling it a ‘fad diet’ with little foundation in nutritional history, researchers have actually revealed impressive scientific evidence to support Dr. Peter D’Adamo’s blood type diet.

I always feel a weird combination of high amusement and extreme infuriation when people call the BTD "a fad diet". Say what you want about the diet, but one thing is definite: it is the exact opposite of a fad diet. First, if you look at the stats of our internet community alone, a lot of us have been around here FOREVER. I've been on the diet since 1997 and in the online community since 1999. Secondly, anyone into a fad diet would never last on the BTD. It is the opposite of gimmicky and it does not promise a quick fix. This diet is about whole, unprocessed foods. You have to learn how to cook, or teach yourself, like I did (I previously was the Queen of Carry-Out). You have to undergo an entire education about your body, food, how your body interacts with food (which is different for each individual), and how your body interacts with specific foods (ditto). Instead of weighing, measuring, counting, choosing one from each color, eating packaged food sent to you by mail, or following some other system that may not require much in the way of learning from the inside out how to eat to keep your unique biochemistry in balance, with the BTD, you have to learn. People interested in fads and quick fixes lose interest in the BTD very quickly because they feel it is too hard. Actually, for those open and willing to learn what they need to learn, it becomes a very easy diet to follow because it is natural, it fits you, it makes you feel healthy, vibrant and in balance, satisfied and it's never boring!
"If you are on one of Dr. D's diets and it isn't joyful, you aren't doing it right."- me -
but I do wish that the scientific community would catch up with the Geno-type Diet and the Swami and start doing articles on those! Those are the ones I'd like to share with my friends who poo poo the BTD saying they tried it, blah blah blah. For me the GTD and Swami is the newest science and the particular regime I have had success on!
I always spread the joy about the GTD and my Swami. When I say BTD.. people are like.. 'yawn.' So I say but wait... there's more that's been developed and it's great!
So I'd love to have some articles to forward on to some of the folks I have turned onto my 'reasons for success,' testimony.
