Blood group diet is a beneficial diet plan that is gaining popularity worldwide. If you are planning on losing weight and looking for some diet plans, blood group diet may come in handy. This diet, invented by Dr. Peter D'Adamo, helps to reduce weight. In his book 'Eat right for your type', Dr D'Adamo suggests the diets that can be followed by an individual as per his blood group.
The chemical reaction to digest the food begins soon after the ingestion of the food. This reaction takes place between lectin (the sugar-binding proteins) present in the food and the blood. This reaction has direct effect on body organs. However, all lectins are not hazardous - their function depends on the compatibility with your blood antigen. Incompatible lectins react with your blood and cause health problems.
According to Dr D’Adamo, 'A single drop of blood contains a biochemical make up as unique as your fingerprint. Your blood type is a key to unlocking the secrets to your biochemical individuality. Foods and supplements contain lectins that interact with your cells depending on your blood type. This explains why some nutrients which are beneficial to one blood type, may be harmful to the cells of another.'
