5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous! 7 Oct 2003
By A Customer
Size Name:Each
As one of the worlds biggest skeptics on diets, it took some convincing to get me to give this one a go, but when a colleagues father in law (a doctor) recommended it i decided to try it out and I have been absolutely astounded by it. For years I have struggled with bloating and fatigue and after only a couple of weeks following the Type A plan I had heaps more energy and (amazingly) no more bloating! A couple of months into the plan I also went to an allergist (who did not know I was blood-typing) and the results were unbelievably in line with the blood type A recommendations!
To anyone who has not already given it a go, I will say this: Stick with it! To begin with it looks complicated and nonsensicle at times, but if you persist the rewards are well worthwhile. I also recommend buying one of the menu books for meal ideas (as for the first week i lived off of Ryvitas and soy cheese!) because it can take a while to get used to implementing new foods and completely changing your eating plan.
The only thing i will say against the blood type diet (and this is through no fault of its own) is that it is not cheap and it is not something you can do on and off. for a while when money was tight i slipped back into my old ways and in no time at all was back to being bloated and lethargic, however, personally, i find it can be expensive and, as you cut as many preservatives out as possible, it can also be time consuming as there is a fair amount of food prep and cooking involved.
If you are prepared to integrate it into your life 100% you will get 100% back from it and feel 100% better!

5.0 out of 5 stars THIS BOOK SAVED MY LIFE 26 July 2003
By A Customer
Two years ago I had suffered from what I thought was Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/M.E. for approximately ten years. I thought I would have to cope with this illness for the rest of life. I'd had all sorts of tests at the hospital, blood tests, allergy tests, thyroid tests, you name it, the doctor sent me. All to no avail.
A friend took me to a complementary therapist who recommended that I read Peter D'Adam's book The Eat Right Diet. I went to a friend's bookshop and bought it the following day.
Amazingly, as I started reading, I kept thinking "yes, that sounds like me, yes, I can identify with those symptoms" etc.
For a long time I had felt thought that somehow it was as though I was poisoning myself. Reading the book confirmed my subconscious thoughts, because my diet was largely made up of all the so called "healthy foods", ie., pasta, potatoes, wholemeal bread (home made), along with a varied selection of fruits and vegetables. Also I was almost vegetarian. This could not have been worse for my type! Even the food allergy tests had not shown any problems with the very same foods which were making me ill, so beware!
I started on the diet immediately, trying my best to cut out all the foods which were considered bad for my type (O). Within days I began to notice a difference, an improvement in the way I felt! My headaches were less, I generally ached less, my brain began to "clear", I did not feel tired all the time. Words cannot describe how relieved I felt! In fact, one day when I realised I was beginning to feel "human" again, I just sat down and cried!
Before I started on the blood type eating regime, I really did think I was dying.

5.0 out of 5 stars Do you want to feel on top of the world 23 Jun 2004
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book was recommended to me by a friend whose husband had diabetes, he lost five stones on it - he is Blood Group A, and is fully in control of his diabetes.
Being extremely overweight myself I looked at the book with my daughter, neither of us knew our blood group but we both worked out what we thought we should be by what was written in the book, we checked and Bingo we were both right.
I am an O, the cave man. I was a tea aholic before starting this way of life and drank gallons of black tea. Treat it like being a diabetic, if you are not allowed tea, wheat, pork etc lik me what the heck there are so many other things that you are allowed. This is a way of life that I wont change. By being careful on what you do eat the weight is dropping off , nearly four stones since January, I had tried every other diet imaginable. You can eat so much and the bonus is on day 3 if you are really, really good you get this energy burst. I am full of energy, I thought that my tiredness was due to the excess weight, but it isn't it is due to putting the wrong fuel in, imagine what would happen if you put Diesel in your unleaded Car, it would become sluggish and stop.
I could go on and on I feel like an evangelist, but please give it a go at first sight it isnt easy but work at it, you will soon find meals that you enjoy.

Found the book informative for the non-medical person as well as motivational for a professional athelete. The descriptions of the food plans which were beneficial for each blood type were detailed enough that I correctly guessed my blood type before having it typed. The explanations of which foods to avoid and why were clear. I have a much better understand of the science of blood and digestion than ever before (and I have read a ton of books regarding food plans for athletes). I am in superior condition as I exercise 2-4 hours per day and have a cholesterol of 166. Nonetheless, I lost 6 lbs in two weeks by just eliminating wheat, corn and potatoes. I am free to eat sweet potatos, yams, turnips, parnips, etc., rather than white potatos and haven't ever felt better. Bravo to a man who carried on with his father's efforts as we all can benefit from two generations of research and hard work!!! Thank you Dr. D'adamo!!!
