It is very important for you to know your blood group and eat according to it. Modern fitness and health trends have spread vast awareness among people but still very few know about what they should eat or avoid according to their blood groups. We will be discussing greatly about what should we eat or avoid for the Blood group Type B Positive.
Dr D. Adamo is the mastermind behind the blood type diet and his book “Eat Right for Your Type” has actually proved that how brilliantly our blood groups work with our weights. There are many things that we should be eating and avoiding for certain blood group to loose, gain or maintain your weight in healthy way. According to this plan, people with type B blood are historically nomadic, and should eat a variety of fruits, vegetables, dairy, most meats and some grains — but avoid foods such as corn, buckwheat, lentils, tomatoes, peanuts. While eating according to this plan may help achieve some health goals, there is no research that any health benefits are related to blood type.
Fruits and Vegetables
The diet for blood type B encourages most vegetables, particularly leafy green vegetables, beets, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, lima beans, mushrooms, mustard greens, sweet or hot peppers, sweet potatoes and yams. Most fruit is permitted, including berries, bananas, grapes, apple, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, mango and papaya. Home grown or locally grown produce is encouraged.
Grains, Beans, Nuts and Seeds
D’Adamo’s plan restricts some common grains including wheat, corn and rye, advising millet, oats, rice and spelt instead. Recommended breads include those made with sprouted grains, and crackers or snacks such as rice cakes, sourdough rye or whole wheat crackers. Beans appropriate for blood type B include kidney, lima and navy beans. While no nuts and seeds are considered optimal on the type B diet, neutral selections include almonds, Brazil nuts, macadamia nuts, pecans and walnuts. Olive oil is the preferred oil.
Meat, Fish and Dairy Foods
According to D’Adamo’s plan, preferred selections of animal protein include lamb, venison, mutton, rabbit, and fish such as salmon, sardine, trout, flounder, halibut and cod. Ideally, meat should be organically raised, free-range, cage-free or wild. Free-range eggs are also acceptable in moderation. Recommended cheeses for blood type B include farmer, feta, goat, cottage, ricotta and mozzarella. Kefir, cow’s milk or goat milk are also good options.
Teas and Spices
Tea is a preferred beverage in D’Adamo’s plan. Green tea and herbal teas including ginger, ginseng, licorice, peppermint, and rose hip tea are considered beneficial. Healthful and preferred spices include curry powder, horseradish, and parsley.
