What Is the A-Positive Blood Type Diet?

Blood type diets are a system of eating which categorize foods as beneficial, neutral, or harmful. It’s based on a person’s blood type and other factors.

The blood type diet requires a regimen called compliance. This refers to eating “beneficials.” Beneficials are chosen for each blood type, based upon the lectins, or molecules, which the food contains.

On this diet, people are defined as being “secretors” or “nonsecretors.” These terms refer to an individual’s ability to secrete blood type antigens into bodily fluids. What you eat is partly based upon your secretor status. This is why the diet is known as an individualized plan.

Food ratios are also provided for each blood type group. These are further broken down into ratios specifically recommended for people of African, Caucasian, and Asian descent.

 

The A-positive blood type diet is primarily vegetarian. its believed people with this blood type have less-than-robust immune systems and are prone to anxiety. His diet plan promises:

  • weight loss
  • less disease
  • more energy
  • better digestion

As with any diet, people may try this plan in order to lose weight or for other health benefits. Weight loss and lowered cholesterol have been reported by people who have tried this diet. However, there’s no evidence the theory underlying this diet caused these results.
