Diet by blood type - advantages and disadvantages

The blood type diet was invented by the American doctor James d'Adamo, who put forward the theory that all foods consumed are divided into three categories: useful, harmful and neutral.

This diet also says that completely identical products for different blood types act differently. This method of nutrition is aimed precisely at eliminating these inconsistencies in the diet and excluding from the menu inappropriate products for a particular blood type.

Advantages and disadvantages of the diet

The benefits of this diet include:

  1. The diet contains in its menu only healthy and dietary foods that one way or another cannot contribute to weight gain.
  2. If a person is psychologically well-disposed and believes that this diet is really a sure way to lose weight, then this technique can bring results.
  3. Since the amount of calories in the diet of this food will be limited, the body will gradually be cleansed of various toxins and, as a result, lose weight.
  4. The diet completely excludes harmful foods, including sweets and preservatives, which in any case will be beneficial to health and weight.

The disadvantages of the diet include:

  1. Depending on the blood type, a person will be deprived of the whole variety of foods consumed, which will lead to a general lack of useful microelements and, as a result, to abdominal pain, loss of strength, mood deterioration, etc.
  2. Nutrition with this diet cannot be called balanced, so the body will experience stress in any case, which can be expressed in constipation, diarrhea and intestinal disorders.
  3. This technique has not yet been thoroughly studied, but, nevertheless, judging sensibly, the inventor of the diet offers all of humanity (regardless of age, gender and other factors) only four general diets, which simply cannot correspond to reasonable truth.
  4. From the point of view of medicine, the human blood composition is quite complex and consists of more than twenty-three systems of blood groups, so it is simply impossible to divide people into just four blood groups and attribute nutrition to them. Each person is unique and their diet should depend more on the season, origin, individual preferences and health conditions than on blood type.
  5. Monotonous nutrition in this diet can lead to an exacerbation of diseases of the kidneys, stomach and liver, so it cannot be observed by people who have serious illnesses.

Reviews of losing weight

To understand the effectiveness of this diet, here are the reviews of people who have tried it:

  1. First review, female, 26 years old. "I have been following the blood type diet for about two months now, so far I really like it. I have the first positive blood group. During this time, I have already lost six kilograms, but I think that after a while I will lose more (my initial weight was eighty-one kilograms). I got used to the menu quickly, I don’t have to go hungry. The only thing that is still hard is drinking juices (I don’t like them at all). "
  2. Second review, female, 39 years old. "I myself am a nutritionist, I know a lot about diets. I have a mother with a very problematic weight (one hundred and ten kilograms). I tried to force her to sit on a variety of diets, but none really helped. As a result, she began to eat on this diet, lost twenty-two kilograms in a year. Weight went away gradually, but surely. I am very satisfied with this method of losing weight. I can say that in the case of my mother, it worked. "
  3. Third review, female, 32 years old. "I was distrustful of this diet, but purely out of curiosity I decided to try it on myself (I have the third group). As a result, in two weeks I lost four kilograms. She surprised herself. However, I am still skeptical about the blood type diet, because I think that this is the most common classic diet, in which you will lose weight anyway.
  4. Fourth review, male, 36 years old. "In recent years, I have started my weight a lot, although I used to be in good shape. I was recommended this diet, and I found it not very restrictive. I switched to this mode gradually so as not to put a lot of stress on the body. In six months, I lost fifteen kilograms. I lost a lot of weight, but oddly enough, my strength didn’t decrease, I feel fine, so this method of losing weight works even without sports, which I didn’t do. "
  5. Fifth review, female, 28 years old. "I have been struggling with excess weight for a long time, but I can’t lose more than three kilograms. When I heard about the blood type diet, I decided to try it. I have a second blood group, and my menu was practically absent of meat, fish. I lasted on such a diet for only two weeks, because my strength was gone, and it was simply impossible to eat. In addition, there was irritability and apathy. In general, my condition was critical, so I stopped torturing myself. A week after the end of the diet, my stomach began to hurt, and as a result, I got gastritis. What can I say, she is to blame, because she ruined her digestion and health. No more dubious diets, which I advise everyone. "

As a result, according to the reviews, we can say that in most cases it is still effective and brings results in the form of losing extra pounds. However, this method of eating is not suitable for everyone, so it should be approached very carefully and gradually. In addition, you should not follow a diet in the presence of pre-existing bowel diseases and other contraindications.
