At Last, the Details We Have Been Waiting For,
By A Customer
This review is from: Live Right 4 Your Type: The Individualized Prescription for Maximizing Health, Metabolism, and Vitality in Every Stage of Your Life (Hardcover)
The details that were left out of D'Adamo's first book "Eat Right 4 Your Type" (because they were considered too technical for the general public) are all here, making this a complete diet and lifestyle manual for those interested in understanding what is right for their individual blood group. Lots of current health research relating to blood type is fully referenced, giving it a good scientific basis. To make the book work fully you have to know not only your basic ABO blood group, but also your 'secretor status' - available by further testing. It takes a little while to get to grips with the '2-Tier' system used by the author, one tier for those who may only want to comply with their recommended foods to a limited extent, and one tier for those who want to do it all the right way. Minus point: the foods are still 'American', translation to English is needed in some cases. Also watch out for the typos in this first edition, and check out D'Adamo's web site for corrections before getting too fixed on what you can or can't eat.
