New Research Has Found a Scientific Basis for This Fascinating Idea!
New Breakthrough Research
For many years the idea that certain foods are better for certain blood types has been championed by Peter D’Adamo, N.D. in his book, Eat Right for Your Type: The Individualized Diet Solution to Staying Healthy, Living Longer & Achieving Your Ideal Weight.
A recent discovery in the field of nutritional research has turned this theory into fact. Scientists in Finland found that blood molecules are effected by different nutrients depending on the blood type. More study is underway, but this fascinating new finding suggests that certain foods – juicing and smoothie recipes included! – are better for certain blood types.
How Does Each Type Differ
To briefly review his book, there are 4 blood types: O, A, B and AB. People with type O blood do best with a high protein and low carb diet. Type A folks do best with vegetarian diets. And type B and AB people are particular combinations of O and A diets. The amazing point of all this is that finally we can understand why diets work fine for some people and not for others! When you eat – and juice – according to your blood type, not only do you feel better, but you can cure a whole host of digestive problems. More importantly it can be the difference between success and failure in your weight loss efforts.

This hardly does justice to his fascinating book so I highly suggest purchasing a copy and reading it. The fascinating history of blood types, their particular digestive strengths and weaknesses, and what foods to eat and not eat are fully detailed. Here I cut to the chase and list the best fruits and veggies for each blood type and then provide my favorite juice recipes for each.
Let Peter D’Adamo explain it for you himself:
Now let’s take a look at how we can apply his theory to juicing recipes for your blood type.
Type O’s do best with the following fruits and vegetables: blueberries, mangos, figs, plums, cherries, bananas, broccoli, kale and spinach. Try these great juice recipes for O’s:
1 pint Blueberries
1 Banana – remember to blend bananas and then add them to your juice
1 spear Broccoli
Add a little water as needed
The best Type A fruits and veggies are plums, figs, avocado, berries of all kinds, pears, peaches, carrots, broccoli, collards, spinach, kale, garlic, soy and pineapple. These juicing recipes are wonderful!
Fruits and vegetables that do best in the type B digestive system are beets, leafy greens, carrots, peppers, sweet potatoes, eggplant, grapes, bananas, cranberries, plums, papaya, watermelon and pineapple.
And finally, the fruits and veggies best suited to AB folks are green vegetables, sea kelp and pineapple. You can also play with dairy and spirulina in your juice recipes. Try these recipes for starters:
