A naturopath diagnosed me with intestinal candida, and recommended I should avoid suga , fermented food and yeast. I was feeling bad even looking at cakes.
Then I contacted Gins Ogorzaly, a chiropractor from New Mexico Albuquerque, who asked me for my blood type right away.
I was confused and said I was O positive. When she heard this, she immediately knew what to do.
She pulled out something from her cabinet and showed me an eating chart for my blood type, with 3 food categories, for every blood type: beneficial, neutral and bad.
She told me that O blood type is a hunter, so I need to eat meat and vegetables, and avoid wheat and grains.
This came as a shock! What should I do now? I asked myself if I`d rather suffer than eat meat. But I was no martyr, so I voted for my health and decided to start eating meat again.
Blood Type Diet
The ABO blood designation, according to D`Adamo, is the most accurate indicator of what we should eat, in order to control our weight and have optimal health. Here every diet is different, there is no one which is right.
“The conventional world divides nutrition into fiber, calories, fat and protein, so they look food as fuel” says D`Adamo, “but food is much more dynamic because it can enhance or inhibit biological processes.”
D`Adamo book describes the Type O as the original blood type, dating from the Cro-Magnons which were carnivores; people with type A blood are vegetarians, type B- omnivores and AB is a combination of A and B.
We need to know that food is a fuel, as well as a great philosophy. Depending on what we eat, it can be good or bad. Each blood type has different antibodies which eliminate foreign cells, but some of them attack the food- they are known as lectins. When they react in this way with blood, proteins can make a real chaos. Each blood type has different ability to handle the lectins.
Transition journey to carnivore
I abandoning my favorite food, like peanuts, lentils, kidney beans, avocado or coconut, and started eating all sorts of meat like beef, bison, as well as food recommended for my blood type like chard, adzuki beans, walnuts and artichokes.
One day my fridge was filled with 25 pounds of grass-fed beef from Colorado. I have never prepared meat before, so in the beginning I made mistakes in almost everything- defrosting, cooking, trimming and spicing. But, with time, I became better and better in doing this.

So was my overall health. I felt much better, I was more energetic, my skin was moisturized, I was sleeping better, the rash went away, as well as the chronic hip pain. Finally I was listening to my body, which was rewarding me.
You and your diet
According to D`Adamo, 3 of 4 patients see improvements after following the Blood Type Diet chart, but the people who benefit the most are the ones with health issues which are not served by modern medicine.
Still, I think that this diet is worth trying. Today, when I only think of the things I loved to eat, but stopped, I feel physically ill again.
D`Adamo consulted Beth Reardon, the director of the integrative nutrition of Duke Integrative Med. She didn`t follow this method, but when he mentioned her that in 75% of cases it gave positive results, she claimed that the blood type diet is beneficial, especially if we take into consideration the baddietary habits of most Americans.
