A few years ago I read Eat Right 4 Your Type and followed the diet (I am an A). I was on it for about a year, and felt the best that I had in years. My frequent headaches were even GONE! Then I was pregnant and was afraid that I wasn't getting enough protein (which I probably was!), so I went off the diet. My DD is now 2 1/2 years old, and I am still not back on the diet. I have never forgotten it though. Surprise, surprise, my headaches are back in full force and I am having trouble getting rid of this extra 20 pounds. So.... just wondering if anyone out there is on the diet and maybe we can give each other some support! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
Thanks,<br><br>

I've read the book too when it first came out. I am a blood type O and according to the book need to eat more protein and fat. I was a vegan and not feeling well - tired, anemic, too thin, etc. I have been told by other natural practioners too that I need more concentrated protein in my diet. I have been trying to eat more protein and find I feel so much better when I do but I don't always stick to it.<br><br>
I was cooking at a health food store deli when the book came out and I had many people tell me that following the diet made a big difference for them.<br><br>
Anyway, I am not following it specifically - like not eating potatoes or strawberries or little exact things like that but I feel like I want to follow the principle behind the O bloodtype.<br><br>
It also makes some sense to me because I have always beleived that one diet does not work for everyone. Some do well on vegetarian or higher carb and others do well on a higher protein, lower carb diet. Some feel good eating meat, while others do not, etc.

I never tried that particular diet, but have tried other "type" diets, such as~<br>
The Ayurvedic "dosha" diet (I am a pitta), the Body Type Diet by Dr. Abravinol (I am a G-type), and the Chinese Element Diet (I was fire)...<br>
all these diets were very different, but the funny thing was I felt improved health and energy on all of them. I think s far as food preferances go, I enjoyed the Ayurvedic diet the best.

I don't really know a lot about it, but my MIL is following this diet and tells everyone how wonderful it is. She seems to be having good results.
