I recently visited with a local nutritionist in an effort to gain some knowledge on what to eat properly when training. Halfway through our consultation, the nutritionist began talking about specifically eating for my blood type. According to him, certain blood types respond much better to certain foods than to others. For example, I am an A blood type and this is what he told me to eat
Carbs - Brown Rice, Oatmeal and Yams. I should avoid bread and pasta and any other source of complex carb.
Veggies - Brocolli, Cauliflower, Cabbage. Other veggies are okay, but I should avoid corn like the plague.
Protein - White sources (Soy and Whey). I should eat chicken in moderation, fish once/week max, and red meat 3 times/week max.
Fats - Supplementing with Flax Seed Oil was the only thing he told me.
Of course this only pertains to when I’m dieting to “cut”. When bulking he told me to eat whatever I wanted, and eat my face off.
I just want to know what your take is on this “blood type” thing. Does it hold any weight?
