Blood Type Diet®
|32. I read your book and it was so interesting that I had to try it. My main motivation was to find a way to stop losing energy during my triathlons and duathlons. 1st, the weight dropped from 168 to 150 (I am 6' and thought this to be impossible!)And my food consumption is dramatically up (the bottomless pit!!) I now train and race with a heartrate monitor out of necessity. I literally have enough energy that during my races I constantly hover at the 180 - 190 mark and would push harder if I didn't have any way of knowing what my heartrate was. I am 33(ex-smoker) and am having my best season ever - rivaling anything I ever did in high school or the service. I had my cholesterol checked at 8 months into the diet just to make sure that wasn't the 'fly in the ointment'. It's not. Barring any unforseen circumstances, I plan to do a half Ironman and, hopefully, qualify for Kona next year.|

Lesson Two: Finding out your blood type
You have taken the very first step
towards greater health and fitness by choosing to follow the Blood Type
Diet, the only scientific method that allows you to calculate which of
the myriad ways of dieting is right for you.
Now let's get started!
The first task you will have to
accomplish is to find out your ABO blood type, since it will be very
difficult to follow the Blood Type Diet without you knowing your blood
There are a few ways to find out your
blood type if you do not already have this information. These include:
- Having a donor card from the Red
Cross or having been typed by a hospital prior to a medical
- Asking your doctor to blood type you.
a home blood typing kit, such as the one available from North American Pharmacal (NAP), and blood typing yourself.

We don't recommend relying on the
recollections of a parent or relative, since experience shows that these
are often incorrect. Military blood typing is often correct, but studies
have shown that errors are not uncommon.
Although it is common to see the ABO type and Rhesus type (Rh+, Rh-, or the 'positive' or 'negative') grouped together, for example AB+ or B-, your ABO type is most important in order to follow the diet.
