During some labwork, I tested my bloodtype today. I have A +.
According to the bloodtype diet, which seems sensible enough I have:
‘Low levels of hydrochloric acid in the stomach and high intestinal disaccharide digestive enzyme levels permit the more efficient digestion of carbohydrates. According to Dr. D’Adamo, these are also the very factors, along with low levels of intestinal alkaline phosphatase, that make it difficult for Type As to digest and metabolize animal protein and fat.’
Now I’m on the Anabolic Diet, and have been for the past three years. It seems that’s far from what I should be doing according to this. I feel fine though, have adequate energy, and most of my food is some form of meat, fish, fowl, a little red meat now and then and eggs.
I really want to give this a go and eat more carbs, less meat and rely on fish, eggs, milk and whey, but having been fat, and having a bit too much BF I fear the carbs.
Anyone have experience with the bloodtype diet/ got anything to share about when they made the transition from eating x to eating y?
