Did you know that my life changed when I stopped eating chicken? It’s true. For the past 5 years I have only eaten chicken on rare occasions.
This one small tweak was the solution to my years-long battle with inexplicable reactive hypoglycemia. It was also a massive tweak that was paramount to me getting into the best shape of my life at 40. This change also made me feel a million times better when I climb a flight of stairs. For my body, chicken is like poison. If you are a B blood type, it’s quite possible the same applies for you.
Without going into too much detail here – I’ll share all of the juicy details tomorrow on “LIVE with Holly” on Facebook – I will share that I have been hugely interested in this dietary approach ever since I first read Eat Right for Your Blood Type by Peter D’Adamo.
The science is simple: Your blood type can be traced back to specific geographic regions millions of years ago. Those regions were limited to the foods that were as indigenous as the people. In short, your blood is happiest when it gets the familiar compounds of its youth. Peter D’Adamo and his father coined tons of research and showed exactly how each blood type changed visibly under a microscope when it was exposed to various food compounds. They proved that some foods act like a very beneficial medicine to certain blood types, and like pure poison to another blood type. A great example here is dairy. For B blood types, dairy is highly beneficial and for A’s and O’s it’s highly toxic. Same food; different reaction.
I credit some of my success to this science. This approach to eating radically changed my life, and I have since incorporated it into my coaching programs. I know that the success my clients are seeing is a direct result.
When I first read the book, I was totally overwhelmed by trying to figure out which foods I could eat, and which I should avoid. It was just too much! Over the years, I have been able to determine that each blood type has only 2 or 3 rules that are the most influential. Instead of trying to learn every food item to eat, I began leaning on the broad rules for direction. And it worked great to bring about better health, energy and weight loss for my clients and me.
