Blood Type Diets | Do Blood Types Affect Metabolism? – Thomas DeLauer:
Brain, Business and Body. The True correlation with health/business performance at http://www.ThomasDeLauer.com
Blood type: 4 blood types: A, B, O and AB-
All blood is made up of the same elements. Based on genes, people will fall into different blood types. The difference is based on the absence or presence of different antigens. The importance of different blood types is mainly due to blood transfusions. If given the wrong blood type, a patient’s immune system will attack the transfused blood due to antigens.
Dr. D’Adamo is the most prolific source of this kind of diet, and in his 1996 book proposed that foods we eat chemically react with our blood, so different diets are more beneficial for those with different blood types. Proposed health benefits are better digestion, more energy, disease prevention and weight loss.
Recommendations Based on Blood Type:
Type O Blood: High protein diet- Lots of vegetables, poultry, fish and lean meats. Fewer grains, dairy and legumes.*Believes that stomach troubles lead to the necessity of certain supplements.
Type A Blood: Meat-free diet- Lots of vegetables, fruits, legumes, beans and whole grains. Be sure food is organic and fresh. *Believes those with type A blood have a sensitive immune system, thus why food should be fresh and organic.
Type B Blood: Lots of green veggies, eggs, low-fat dairy and certain meats. Avoid chicken, wheat, buckwheat, peanuts, corn, lentils, tomatoes and sesame seeds.
Type AB Blood: Lots of green veggies, tofu, seafood and dairy. Avoid coffee and caffeinated beverages, alcohol and cured or smoked meats. *Believes those with type AB blood have lower stomach acid, thus the foods that need to be avoided.
Evidence: A 2013 review looked at studies published looking at the differences in blood type to determine what, if any, evidence is out there to support any health benefits from those following these kinds of diets.
There are studies out there that support disease differences between the different ABO blood groups: Pancreatic cancer, venous thromboembolism & myocardial infarction. This association has been used as a basis to support blood type diets. This study found that there were no studies out there that showed the health effects of the ABO diet that fell within the inclusion criteria:
“The population, intervention, comparison, and outcome (PICO) question was as follows: In humans grouped according to blood type (population), does adherence to a specific diet (intervention) improve health and/or decrease risk of disease (outcome) compared with non-adherence to the prescribed diet (comparison)?”
Only one study specifically fell within the inclusion criteria of population, study design and intervention (participants following a diet based on blood type meant to improve health). This diet looked at the effect of low-fat diet on LDL-cholesterol level with groups broken out by MNS blood type (a blood type functionally distinct from ABO blood type).
This study did find that LDL-cholesterol levels varied between blood types, demonstrating that there may be a difference in response to diet based on MNS blood types with regards to LDL-cholesterol level. However, this study did not include a control group for each blood type following a standard diet.
Additionally, there are other genetic aspects that likely come into play, making a diet based only on blood type more prone to challenges in validity.
There is a study that did not follow the PICO guideline that found a correlation between ABO blood type and food sensitivities and allergies. The findings of this study did not always align with the ABO diet play outlined by D’Adamo. An overt potential bias of the author exists – a link was included to take readers to the author’s website to promote the author’s book and research.
Another study did find that there exists a difference between the gut microbiota of those with different ABO blood types – specifically differences between those with the B antigen and those without the B antigen. This alone is not enough to support different diets based on blood type.
Word of caution: the blood type diet may recommend a diet based on blood type that could be dangerous due to a health condition. Be sure to talk with your doctor before starting this kind of diet.

What a nice way of saying it was just another diet fad with data skewed in order to sell books.

Your view of reducing saturated fat, is it based on any scientific research? As far as it latest science concerned, it is crucial for human body and reject the misconception of stupid Ancel Keys!

Agostino Chimienti says:

do you know something about the benefits of cold showers? for muscles and for health?? could you do a video on that topic? thanks a lot

Luke A. Ward says:

Love it, Tommy still gets his inflammation advice in here!

cd3422 says:

a scientific no bullshit approach video to post finasteride syndrome I'm sure would get tons of hits. I know there's lots of guys out there suffering and I know that they are all trying to figure out their hormones. your expertise is it not, Thomas?

Eddie Davis Jr says:

Another great video!

guitar ta says:

yes, what eat a day, what supplement do you use now, whats your one day?  we wonder:)
ty bro 🙂

Ron Reed says:

You mentioned testing your biomarkers in the video. What's a good way to test your biomarkers and find out what foods would cause you inflammation?

Lions have blood types, I don't see them prioritising their food

Joann Porter says:

Great video.

Don Smith says:

A neg – Weak immune? Almost never sick. No food allergies. Only taken antibiotics 3 times in 52 years.

Elena Grasyuk says:

I am type O but I haven't been able to consume any animal product for a while now. After hitting the 30's, doesn't matter the quality of the food, or how well and careful it's been prepared, anything animal based caused me digestion problems that have always been accompanied by pain.
Comparing my well being prior to switching to all plant based lifestyle, I have to say I'm thriving now.

True story… i've been competing and follow my blood type info closely, YESTERDAY i googled blood type videos by you, and didn't find any. To my surprise, one was uploaded for today. Crazy timing!
