I don’t know about you, but what D’Adamo says about blood type diet DOES make sense to me. And speaking of ‘diet’, don’t get it wrong. It’s about how you’re supposed to eat throughout your lifetime to achieve balance, not about how you can drop some pounds, or in my very case, gain several nanograms.
Why I Believe It
So Dr. D’Adamo says people who are A blood type have a distinct characteristics. This is what he argues about genetic background of Type A:
The key factor in the development of Type A can be traced to the struggle for survival long ago, when there was a rapidly dwindling supply of hunting game stock. Having exhausted the great game herds of Africa, humans pushed farther out from their ancestral home into Europe and Asia. The cultivation of grains and livestock changed everything. For the first time, people were able to forego the hand to mouth lifestyle of the hunter/gatherer and establish stable communities. Over time the adaptations that produced Blood Type A were based on the need to fully utilize nutrients from carbohydrate sources. These biological adaptations can still be observed today in Type A’s digestive structure.
