The Optimal Blood TYPE AB Diet

This will conclude our oh so LONG discussion on the book "Eat Right For Your Type" by Dr. Peter J. D'Adamo. But, if you have questions feel free to continue to ask.

If you care for the info, feel free to read. But since it is so long you may only want to read it unless you or someone you know is a TYPE AB. TYPE O & TYPE A & TYPE B were discussed in my previous posts. If you haven't checked it out in a few days, you should look the posts over because I have updated a lot.

The Skinny on a TYPE AB Person:
Modern Merging of A and B
Chameleon's Response to Changing Environmental and Dietary Conditions
Sensitive Digestive Tract
Overly Tolerant Immune System
Responds Best to Stress Spiritually, with Physical Verve and Creative Energy
An Evolutionary Mystery

This is the rarest and newest blood type - only about 2-5% of the population has this type. Thats why I debated even writing about it, but maybe one of you out there is an AB. If you are - please just leave a little comment and tell me, I want to meet an AB =] TYPE AB has qualities of TYPE A and TYPE B and neither. So in a lot of ways they will exhibit qualities of either type but sometimes have completely new qualities. Every blood type diet takes careful consideration and attention to food labels, but this one probably the most.

FOODS THAT ENCOURAGE WEIGHT GAIN:
Red Meat - poorly digested (because ABs have the small amount of stomach acid that As have, but Bs adaptation to meat. That creates a bad mix when meat is consumed - it is just stored as fat), stored as fat, toxifies intestinal tract
Kidney Beans - inhibits insulin efficiency, causes hypoglycemia, slows metabolic rate
Lima Beans - inhibits insulin efficiency, causes hypoglycemia, slows metabolic rate
Seeds - causes hypoglycemia
Corn - inhibits insulin efficiency
Buckwheat - causes hypoglycemia
Wheat - decreases metabolism, inefficient use of calories, inhibits insulin efficiency

FOODS THAT ENCOURAGE WEIGHT LOSS:
Tofu - promotes metabolic efficiency
Seafood - promotes metabolic efficiency
Dairy - improves insulin production
Green Vegetables - improves metabolic efficiency
Kelp - improves insulin production
Pineapple - aids digestion, stimulates intestinal mobility

MEATS AND POULTRY -
"Like Type A, you do not produce enough stomach acid to effectively digest too much animal protein. Yet, the key for you is portion size and frequency. Type ABs need some meat protein, especially the kinds of meat that represent your B-like heritage - lamb, mutton, rabbit, and turkey, instead of beef. The lectin that irritates the blood and digestive tracts of Type Bs has the same effect on you, so stay away from chicken. Also avoid all smoked or cured meats. These foods can cause stomach cancer in people with low levels of stomach acid, the trait you share with Type As."

Avoid:
Bacon, Beef, Buffalo, Chicken, Cornish Hens, Duck, Goose, Ham, Heart, Partridge, Pork, Veal, Venison, Quail

SEAFOOD -
Highly Beneficial:
Cod, Grouper, Hake, Mackerel, MahiMahi, Monkfish, Ocean Perch, Pickerel, Pike Porgy, Rainbow Trout, Red Snapper, Sailfish, Sardine, Sea Trout, Shad, Snail, Sturgeon, Tuna

Avoid:
Anchovy, Barracuda, Beluga, Bluegill Bass, Clam, Conch, Crab, Crayfish, Eel, Flounder, Frog, Haddock, Halibut, Herring, Lobster, Lox, Octopus, Oysters, Sea Bass, Shrimp, Sole, Striped Bass, Turtle, Yellowtail

DAIRY AND EGGS -
You people are lucky - you can easily digest dairy foods, so enjoy! The only thing to watch for is the whole mucus thing - just like TYPE As, TYPE ABs are overproducers of mucus and dairy encourages more mucus production. So watch out for that.

Highly Beneficial:
Cottage Cheese, Farmer, Feta, Goat Cheese, Goat Milk, Kefir, Mozzarella, Ricotta, Non-fat Sour Cream, Yogurt

Avoid:
American cheese (I see a trend here, looks like that is good for no one!), Blue Cheese, Brie, Butter, Buttermilk, Camembert, Ice Cream, Parmesan, Provolone, Sherbet, Whole Milk

OILS AND FATS -
Highly Beneficial:
Olive Oil

Avoid:
Corn Oil, Cottonseed Oil, Safflower Oil, Sesame Oil, Sunflower Oil

NUTS AND SEEDS -
"Eat them in small amounts and with caution. Although they can be a good supplementary protein source, all seeds contain the insulin-inhibiting lectins that make them a problem for Type Bs. On the other hand, you share the Type A preference for peanuts, which are powerful immune boosters. Type ABs also tend to suffer from gallbladder problems, so nut butters are preferable to whole nuts."

Highly Beneficial:
Chestnuts, Peanuts, Peanut Butter, Walnuts

Avoid:
Filberts, Poppy Seeds, Pumpkin Seeds, Sesame Butter (tahini), Sesame Seeds, Sunflower Butter, Sunflower Seeds

BEANS AND LEGUMES -
Highly Beneficial:
Navy, Pinto, Red and Soy Beans, Green Lentils

Avoid:
Aduke, Azuki, Black, Fava, Garbanzo, Kidney and Lima Beans, Black-eyed Peas

CEREALS -
"Generally, you do well on grains, even wheat, but need to limit your wheat consumption because the inner kernel of the wheat grain is highly acid forming for Type ABs. Wheat is also not advised if you are trying to lose weight....You'll have to experiment for yourself to determine how much wheat you can eat."

Highly Beneficial:
Millet, Oat Bran, Oatmeal, Rice Bran, Puffed Rice, Ryeberry, Spelt

Avoid:
Buckwheat, Cornflakes, Cornmeal, Kamut, Kasha

BREADS AND MUFFINS -
Highly Beneficial:
Brown Rice Bread, Essene Bread, Ezekiel Bread, Fin Crisp, Millet, Rice Cakes, 100% Rye Bread, Rye Crisps, Rye Vita, Soy Flour Bread, Sprouted Wheat Bread, Wasa Bread

Avoid:
Corn Muffins

GRAINS AND PASTA -
"Type AB benefits from a diet rich in rice rather than pasta, although you may have semolina or spinach pasta once or twice a week."

Highly Beneficial:
Oat Flour, Rice Flour, Rye Flour, Sprouted Wheat Flour, Basmati Rice, Brown Rice, White Rice, Wild Rice

Avoid:
Buckwheat kasha, Barley Flour, Artichoke Pasta, Soba Noodles

VEGETABLES -
"Fresh vegetables are an important source of phytochemicals, the natural substances in foods that have a tonic effect in cancer and heart disease prevention - diseases that afflict Type As and Type ABs more often as a result of weaker immune systems."

Avoid:
Artichoke, Avocado, Corn, Lima Beans, Black Olives, All Peppers, Radishes, Mung Sprouts, Radish Sprouts

FRUITS -
Avoid:
Bananas, Coconuts, Guava, Mangoes, Oranges, Persimmons, Pomegranates, Prickly Pears, Rhubarb, Starfruit

JUICES AND FLUIDS -
An interesting recommendation -
"Type AB should begin each day by drinking a glass of warm water with the freshly squeezed juice of half a lemon to cleanse the system of mucus accumulated while sleeping. The lemon water also aids elimination."

Highly Beneficial:
Cabbage, Carrot, Celery, Black Cherry, Cranberry, Grape, Papaya

Avoid:
Orange

SPICES -
Avoid:
Allspice, Almond Extract, Anise, Barley Malt, Capers, Cornstarch, Corn Syrup, Gelatin, Pepper of all kinds, Tapioca, Vinegar - only white

CONDIMENTS -
Avoid:
Ketchup, Pickles of all kinds, Relish, Worcestershire Sauce

MISC BEVERAGES -
Highly Beneficial:
Coffee - Regular and Decaf, Green Tea

Avoid:
Liquor, Soda of all kinds, Black Tea - regular and decaf

There are exercise and supplement recommendations as well. If you are an AB and want that, give me your email address and I will email it to you! Remember that if a certain food in a food group is not listed, that means it is neutral to your body. Does no harm but does not have highly beneficial qualities. But don't not eat neutral foods! You need a balance so you have to eat the highly beneficials and neutrals. Don't let this scare you! Start at one place and go from there. It takes time and don't expect change to be immediate! =]

I'm AB! Woot Woot!
First question.... What is an overly tolerant immune system?
Second question.... My doctor told me to eat lots of red meat because I am (exuse my spelling)anemic. He said red meat would raise my iron. He won't let me give blood again til I can raise my iron levels. If I am to avoid red meat because it is bad for AB+ blood, then how do you suggest I raise my iron?
Thirdly.... I am so happy that I could allow you to have finally met an AB+ person. Didn't know it was so special.

travelgirlee said...

I am AB+ and have been trying to have a baby for two years. I have just started the in vitro process and have been getting acupuncture for the last three months. My acupuncturist recommended the book about your blood type. I have a great immune system (plus I am around sick people all the time) but lately I have been having stomach aches. I am a big fan of dairy but SOMETIMES when I eat eggs I feel like vomitting. I try to eat red meat sparingly but eat chicken nearly every day in some form as my source of protein. Any recommendations for a diet to help get my body ready for this huge process I will be going through next month?

Julie said...

Well thankfully, you are well equipped to handle the dairy for the most part, so that's good right? I guess I would recommend getting the book for sure. It is not too expensive on amazon.com They also have small books that summarize what is good and what is not for ABs. Something like that may be more helpful at this time. Typically I would say that it needs to be a slow process in order to change your diet, but it seems like for this situation you need to make some changes fast. So, stick to the appropriate AB diet as best you can. Take out meat completely, significantly increase vegetable intake - preferably raw, add some seafood (be careful of the source), go with the highly beneficial grains like oat or rice flour and you can still eat dairy, but be cautious. Those are some immediate changes I would make and then slowly do the rest. Thanks for checking out my blog! =]

Hello Julie,

whheew what a relief. I am AB+ and had no idea about the special diet. All these years I was just listening to my body, like if I eat oranges I get tummy ache. If I eat white bread which is basically made of wheat I get sour tummy. I don't drink any kind of Soda as it gives me acidic tummy. Mangoes does the same to me. I do love pineapples and kiwis. I am so happy that I stumble into your blog or else I would never understand myself this way faster. My family think am too sensitive. Again, thanks a lot, now I know that I am pretty normal after all.

best regards,
christy

I am AB+. I do get an upset stomach often. I cannot drink milk, or eat much ice cream, sour cream etc. I get a very upset stomach from dairy. I am constantly "clearing my throat". One time someone suggested the problem wasn't the dairy, but it was the protein in the milk products that were causing my upset stomach?

Chana Pinto said...

I'm also AB+, and it didn't mean much to me until about 6 months ago, when I just wasn't feeling well- pretty much all the time. I had a high Alkaline phosphotase level for almost two years and every liver test came back inconclusive. After 6 kids I had an extra 40 lbs on me that wouldn't go away. After exercising with a trainer and running for a full year (I was able to run a 10 km race, though my time wasn't that good) I had lost about 10 lbs but I felt horrible! My trainer was the one who recommended a naturopath, who subsequently put me on the blood type diet. After suffering through the first very strict 6 weeks, I started to actually feel a lot better! After 3 months I had lost 12 more lbs, but strangely enough, my Alkp level went back to normal- after 2 years of being high! I can only attribute this to my diet, bc I had started working out way before, with no change in the levels. Now, 5 months later, I feel so much better on a day to day basis. My weight has plateaued somewhat, and my naturopath suggests I jump start the process again by going back to the first 6 weeks diet- the ultra strict part. I'm hesitant to do that again, bc I hated it, but I may give it a go again- after the Jewish holidays are over!!!!
By the way, I never thought I could be a "vegetarian" (though I never call myself that)- but I like it- and I've learned to LOve love love salmon!
Any pointers for me would certainly be appreciated!

Hey there, I hope you are well in your personal affairs. I am saddened because I am an AB+ and just about everything on the avoid list is what I like to eat!

I am concerned mostly about the recommendations to eat lots of seafood. I read an article that said that most of our seafood is contaminated with mercury and other nasties; even the farmed ones have nasties! Also, I am intolerant to soy products (they make me vomit).

But the most damning thing is that I cannot eat raw veggies because I have oral allergy syndrome.

Recommendations?

Thanks for posting this info, it's so interesting! I like how it lists that us AB+'ers benefit from using spiritual/creative energy to combat sickness. I'm a massage therapist and professional dancer so I definitely find it applicable. I'm also in love with rice ever since I was little and I'm really not a very picky eater but I'm sad about chicken! I have horrible allergies (hayfever, animal dander, etc.) so the mucus issue makes sense!

HI I am an AB+ and my new naturopath recently recommended that I eat right for my type. I have not eaten wheat for years because After and elimination diet I realized that I felt better and had less mucous without it as did my son. We substituted buck wheat, millet, rice amaranth and quinoa. But weight loss is a bugaboo as is constant mucous production. And in the last 2 year my digestive system has just about quit. So I sought her out and some herbs and this diet were her suggestion. I balked at no chicken. We raise pasture raised no hormone , antibiotic free chicken and pork! but also lamb and rabbit so I will have access to some clean meats. YAH!!!
So today's question is what about eggs? Should I eat our chicken eggs?
BTW, I ate chicken one night as I did not have time of energy to fix a separate meat for myself and it did cause a lot of mucous the next morning! Oh Boy!
Well for now I am giving it a try.
Thanks!

I am AB+ and I just found that out. Over the past few years I have been eliminating foods, experimenting, cleansing etc. I have determined that gluten is my worst enemy. I had a hyperthyroid attack many years ago and am now in remission, however, at times I have anxiety attacks, depression and weakness and slowly I am sorting out things and finding out what foods are best. We live in Mexico now but I am originally from Holland. I was raised on lots of bread, potatoes, red meat and flour based sweets. Horrible! I do very well on red meat or so it seems and we eat nixtamal (real home made corn tortillas) daily and since we have, I have lost 20 pounds. I have always been thin until a few years ago when we began to eat a lot of avocados! Oh my, this is so interesting. I am going to really search out more info. Thank you so much for your generosity and you are welcome to contact me. I have a website with a contact form www.ellenvanbaren.com
Love and light

I am an AB+! I think the biggest challenges for me will be cutting out Beef, Chicken, Duck, Pork, Shellfish, Anchovy, Octopus, Seeds, Avocado, Capers, Black Olives, Bell Peppers, Mangoes, Bananas - ALL FOODS THAT I LOVE!
:-(

Also, it says that I should tolerate dairy quite well, but when it comes to milk, I quite often feel sick after having a large milky coffee etc, so I have been drinking soy milk lately - and quite enjoying it - any recommendations here? (I have no obvious problems with cheese/yoghurts etc...)

If you could please forward any further info to phebejane@gmail.com that'd be great! I am looking to shift a few extra kilos so any exercise advice would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks <3

This is wonderful! The only concern I have is that I am allergic to shellfish and seafood is one of the things ABs should eat.

Also, I'm AB+ and am surprised to find many food on this list that I already love to eat! Funny how that works out that way.

I'd love to see exercise recommendations. I just had a baby and am looking to get back to little ole me again!

Hello I just recently knew that I'm an AB+ and I am glad this blood existed 2000 years ago hehe. But I'm a Filipino, from a Chinese and Spanish Ancestry lol.

gaultfalcon said...

I am AB+. I have had great success in weight loss using a zone like (I don't weigh my food) diet. 30% carbs (the good ones), 30% protein (mostly grass fed beef and organic chicken) and 40% fats (avocado, peanut butter, cashew nuts). I also take about 5 grams of (mercury free) fish oil (Innate Choice) each day.

From an exercise perspective I have done crossfit for two and a half years but I dropped the weight before I started crossfit using just the zone like diet.

Stats:

Age: 43 (started diet at 39)
Weigh: 180 (down from 201)
Body fat %: 8-9% (down from 26%)
Height: 6'
Blood Type: AB+

I just heard about eating for your type and just assumed I was O+ like my sister, but I just learned I am in the special catagory of AB+! I feel like Sookie Stackhouse :) (True Blood fans will know what I mean!)
I have fought with my weight my whole life and had a LOT of misconceptions about what was good for me. I am glad I can have my rice and get rid of wheat bread! I will sure miss my chicken and pickles though :(

Julie Long said...

Hi! I'm a Julie, too, and I am AB-. My sister is also AB-! Guess we are a couple of rare ones, huh?

I found your site as I was doing research on diets. I'm finding that, the older I get (I'll be 45), the more sensitive I am to foods, as evidenced by my digestive systems adverse reaction. I can no longer eat peas, beans, corn, tomatoes and, I'm beginning to suspect, chicken, without having problems the next day...if you know what I mean! I've decided I need to figure out what I can and can't eat and change my diet, accordingly. Of course, having a family where there is type 0, A, and B makes it all the more challenging, if I adhere to the blood type diet, but I'm going to have to see what I can do!

Thank you for the information!

Hi Julie,

I am an AB+ type. Thanks for the post. I found out about eating right for your type about 3 years ago from my sister. I tested the validity of eating based on blood type by taking oranges out of my diet for two weeks. I chose oranges because most of my life orange juice was my beverage of choice. I drank orange juice every day! After the two weeks past I drank one glass of orange juice and it took two days for me to recover. My stomach churned and I felt as though I had acid reflux. About a year latet I tried about two tablespoons (just a last try - I missed my OJ!) and got sick again! OJ is gone forever.

I have really focused on eating turkey and lamb. I substitute turkey in recipes that require chicken. I've been eating in more just to watch my intake. Looking to lose weight.

One question: what are the best foods and exercise to combat artheritis and fat in the stomach area?

Could you please email me the exercise info? Thanks again!

Hi Julie-

I am also AB+ and just learned about eating or my blood type from a friend who's studying chinese medicine. Just checking out your site, this is definately something I would like to know more about. I have a high thyroid count, so I 'm wondering if eating differently will help that at all.
Anything you can forward me on your exercise regime or vitamins to take as well, would be greatly appreciated. My email is marenbonamer@yahoo.com

hey there. i am a "surprise surprise" AB+(Rh) blood type. i like the thought of being a universal receiver! also. i must have inherited one hell of a metabolism because i eat whatever i want and dont gain weight. if i try really hard i can gain a bit. mostly just stay around 65 (im basically 6 foot tall) jalepenos give me tummy burn but i love them. too much dairy can make me feel a bit sicky. i am allergic to alcohol though. which is a bit of a bummer. never thought it would have anything to do with my blood type tho.
i noticed on your DONT eat lists lots of my favourite things! but i might try to limit them. i did a live food diet a few years ago. it was amazing learning about what and how certain foods make you feel. i recommend a moderated version for short periods to anyone interested.!
thanks. nice to meet you.

I'm AB+ from Ontario Canada!!! YAY!! My first comment would be to say please donate blood, whatever your type. Many people require blood in life threatening and non-life threatening situations! It's the one gift I donate every 56 days and more consistently now that I know my blood type.

As far as diet is concerned I eat like a bird but when I do eat it mainly consists of raw vegetables, whole grains eggs and small amounts of meat. Unfortunately I am lactose intolerant which means I avoid dairy at all possible costs. (Soy is a good alternative!)

I was just wondering if there are specific vitamins AB + people should take in addition to the general vitamins. Are there specific types of exercise that benefit AB's over other types?

I'm another AB+ guy from Sydney, Australia. Great to see so many of us in this very special group! I've had similar problems with diet, especially the digestion of red meat (beef and lamb) and red wine. Significant problems with indigestion so have cut these items out. Eating more fish (salmon) and chicken and more frequent and smaller portioned meals. Regular exercise is crucial for us. Careful with gallbladder issues as you get older - had to have mine removed. Thanks for the dietary advice Julie - you're spot on!

Coby said...

I'm an AB+, and had no idea it was rare!
I don't really know what the A and B way to eat is. I have numerous health problems, and was told by my chiropractor to check into "How to Eat For Your Blood Type". I have RA, Fibromyalgia, IBS and Diverticulosis. I also have terrible tinnitus. I'm allergic to SO many things.I'm 54. My husband is a very healthy guy, and I'd like to be able to be too. I exercise almost daily for an hour, and try to eat healthy, but I have about 30 stubborn pounds regardless of how I eat. I eat chicken ALL the time, and thought I was doing myself a favor!
Do you think my health could improve with your diet plan?

Hello, my name is Stephanie, and I'm (AB negative). I bought the EATING FOR YOUR BLOOD TYPE book that's specifically for AB blood types, however, I noticed that you have coffee as a beneficial beverage, but in the book, it lists coffee as a beverage to avoid. Also, you also mentioned that if there is a food that isn't listed, to consider it a neutral food. I was wondering about satsumas. I know they are in the orange family, but they aren't listed. Thank You.

I'm interested in the exercise aspect you offered. I tend to be drawn to explosive activity. And I've noticed with the list of AB foods- I was already unattracted to those particular foods it said to avoid. Qtroxy07@hotmail.com

Hi, I am AB+,
My immune system is extremely good! I never contracted measles, mumps, chicken pox or german measles. Never a sickly child or adult. I wonder if this has anything to do with my blood group?
Weight wise... I'm thin/skinny, in fact i have always needed to make sure i eat 3 meals a day, as i can loose weight very easily.
Diet.... I eat full fat everything! If i didn't eat meat, then i feel i would waste away! I generally eat well, although I have to say, looking at the diet guide depresses me, as i love all dairy, meat, fish etc, so cutting out certain items would be very difficult.
I have high energy and usually on the go most of the time.
Happy chatting!

I am ab- and believe that my blood is rarer than rocking horse $hit. And yes i have a very strong immune system. I also recover from stress quickly. I have chameleon qualities and adapt to any situation readily. I have tried the ab- food diet and it actually does work VERY well. It just makes sense to eat for your blood type.

Tina said...

I am AB+, and I am so happy to have read this information! I would love the other information you mentioned in regard to exercise and such. Reading this almost made me feel like you wrote it just for me. I cannot believe how spot on it is!

I have struggled with my weight ever since I was greeted by 'womanhood' at the age of 11. Between 11 and 12 years of age I went from 101 pounds to 160 pounds without changing anything. So the weight-loss roller coaster began!

I am currently overweight and just reaching the tail end of a seven-day fast to begin a new relationship with food. The information I found here is timely and helpful. My first objective I had determined was to eliminate wheat, and what you have shared here confirms my suspicion.

Thank you so much for sharing this information, and please email the other if you would be so kind.

puddle said...

Hi, Julie! I'm a Julie, and AB+, and 71 years old, and been *dieting* since I was 12. If I tried this (and have effectively), I promise I'd be a balloon in short order. The ONLY way I can maintain weight is on near zero carbs. ALL grains of ALL varieties are absolutely out, and cause digestive problems. Especially and first and foremost and always: WHEAT. Oats are right behind. I'll give up artichokes and avocados about the 12th of Never. I do VERY well, thank you, on beef, pork, chicken, shrimp. No corn, potatoes or beans.

And BTW Type A is older than type O. . . .

Hi I am young and have an AB+ blood type. I will read this as a help since I weigh 170 and am 5"4 (small and heavy). I read some of this in other similar stories about AB+ blood types and believe that the blood is also a key to diet weight loss, it is an equal key to exercising and planned eating in maintaing your life. So I thank you for the very informative information. Also if there are any more was as one commented -what exercise and diet or vitamin supplement should i do to further tone and better control myself?
-also I seem very addicted to food all the time- as in I crave sweets and eat more at night then morning times. So if there is anything more I am glad if you can send me any to my Google.

Hi Julie,
I am AB-..I think we are even more rare than AB+. I had to have surgery in 1985 and it took 2 days to get 3 units of AB-, I needed four before the surgery was over and ended up getting one unit of B-. I never knew it was that rare. I have fought weight all of my life and I have just discovered the blood type diet and I am going to give it a whirl. The bad thing for me is I LOVE meat especially chicken and pork..but I am so tired of constantly fighting the fat with no success..the meat is out the door!!! I am diabetic (type 2) and I have arthritis in right ankle..knee and lower back so getting on the floor is almost impossible..getting up is worse..lol..all due to injuries I had had. I am Blessed with good health other wise except for the mucus monster and now I know the reason for that one. Wish me luck.

I am so happy I found this site.

Digestive problems out the wazoo here.

I did a huge diet modification because I am lactose intolerant and have gluten sensitivity and diabetic.

Feeling lucky =)

So now I dig into research me and what is the best diet for myself to live.

No I eat to live and not live to eat. it feels good to know there are some other people like myself.

Since my diet modification I have dropped weight , more energy and best of all the insulin levels are going back to normal without medication. I just have to poke my finger a few times per day.

Wish everyone the best and stay positive.
