Eat Right for Your Type — Twenty Year’s Later

It’s been 20 years since Eat Right for Your Type was first published and Dr. Peter D’Adamo brought the concept of blood type and personalized nutrition to world-wide attention.  Dr. D’Adamo continues to inspire us, and here are his reflections as we mark the 20th Anniversary of this revolutionary work.

“The Blood Type Diet is now twenty years old. It is a happy anniversary for me and for the millions of people around the world who have boughtEat Right for Your Type, the book that started it all. The most striking fact about Eat Right for Your Type is its longevity. It’s rare to see a diet book that retains its sales strength after two decades. New diets come and go every season, exploding into the marketplace only to fade before being replaced the next season by something new. And although the Blood Type Diet has often been labeled a “fad” by skeptics, the definition of fad is something that inspires intense fashion in the moment but quickly fades. Twenty years in, I think we can agree that the Blood Type Diet is not a fad.”

In the new 20th anniversary edition of Eat Right for Your Type, we’ve introduced the 10-Day Blood Type Diet Challenge, a kick-start plan to help you get started. Our experience is that the Blood Type Diet has an immediate effect. People report that within a few days they experience some weight loss, the reduction of digestive ailments, less joint pain, and greater energy, among other benefits.

My special thanks for going on this journey with me, is my favorite tool from the Anniversary Edition — A 3-Day Lectin Detox. The lectin detox is designed to jump start the 10-Day Blood Type Challenge. It requires maximum compliance, which yields maximum results. In my experience, people who start the diet with a high level of compliance quickly reset their biochemistry, boosting metabolism, balancing blood sugar and repairing past lectin damage.

Supplement your diet with lectin-detoxifying nutrients. Suggestions are included, but you can investigate more options, including blood type-specific products and foods.

Be sure to keep a record of what you eat, your exercise routines, and the supplements you take. Record your reflections on the journey as you begin so that you can track your progress and hold yourself accountable. Make notes about how you feel physically, your energy levels, mood, and whatever else you want to record.
