Blood types Body types You Book This book is extensive, so it has not been fully read or utilized
as of yet, by my brother-in-law and I. The chapters on foods to
eat, avoid, etc., exercise and diet have been very enlightening.
The book has proved to be very interesting. Thank you....more info
Awesome book! As a nutritionist I found this book to be an amazing resource for my clients. Since eating for your blood type isn't widely recognized nor known in the mid-west where I live, this book helps me introduce the idea to my clients in a way that is completely understandable. I have been following this book's ideas about eating right for my blood and body type and since then have lost 12 lbs in 2 months! So for those skeptics out there this system of eating really does work!!!
I would hope that doctors, other nutritional experts, and even those responsible for feeding children and seniors would purchase this book as a reference....more info
Ripoff Artist This author steals all of his information form Peter D'Adamo and never gives any credit. In addition, he pushes his conservative Christian agenda down your throat. I was highly disappointed that the author never cited D'Adamo's work. He continually cited himself and previous books. Simply disgusting. It amazes me how someone can get a book published that is entirely a rewording of a highly respected scientist and no one questions this....more info
Blood Types - Generally good info. This is generally good information to use as a guide to diet and other
health considerations as they relate to your blood type. I took my own
personal survey of friends and family and most people tended to fall into their respective blood profiles. Also, most people had the food sensitivies indicated for each blood type as well. I didn't especially like having to order the products in order to keep on the recommended diet. Overall, I think the diet worked well for my blood type and should be considered. ...more info
Good but discrepancy I checked the hardcover version out of my local library, because I'd already purchased the Cook Right 4 Your Type book by Dr. Peter J. D'Adamo, to see if this author had anything different to say. It is basically the same information, except this one had the exercise routines in it based on your body shape, which I find helpful. The discrepancy comes in when he suggests the 28 day planners to include tomatoes for Type A, which I am, when tomatoes are on the "Avoid" list for Type A. I do like some of the recipes. Since this book has a religious aspect to it, it might turn some people off....more info
Pleased I enjoyed this book and did learn from it. We immediately started some of the suggestions and have seen changes. I was happy to find a newer blood type/diet book. Joseph Christiano has done some nice work with this book and I appreciate it for the health of my loved ones.

This book is a disappointment! This book is boring. I saw the author on Paula White's program and I thought that the book would give me more info on blood type and good eating habits. It did not! Don't waste your money....more info
Blood type, body types Jury is still out on this one. Have been low carbing. This is a little different....more info
This book will help... This book actually gives you choices in books of diets and weight loss. If you tried other diets and failed, buy this book and give it a go. I have followed this book for about 3 weeks, (and not 100%), I have seen results. ...more info
Bloodtypes, Bodytypes, & You Interesting reading. Lots of little hints, & helps for losing weight. I did find that the list of foods for my bloodtype, especially the meats, were things that I do not like, consequently, I have opted for a low fat, low sugar diet with lots of exercise. I still recommend this book. I have learned lots of things about my health....more info
Unproven theories and recommendations can be dangerous I practiced the O positive recommendations for a couple of years. The meat was hard to digest, especially the beef. The diet gave me arthritis in my joints. Older people and post-menopausal women should beware. Also, I found elsewhere that type O is among the most common types. If so, why are heavy meat eaters getting health issues related to diet? The statistics do no match up. It is an excellent marketing gimmick, but since switching to eating dairy and vegetarian, no red meat, my joints are much better. These books are dangerous and should be banned because there is no science to validate specifically these theories. Be careful folks. Anyone want to buy my books cheap? Type ) and overview. What a racket this doctor? or author? or publishing company? has come up with, sorry to say. ...more info
Bloodtypes Bodytypes and You We have been following the outline for the proper food groups for our blood types and have noticed an improvement in our health. I have also lost 20 pounds in 8 weeks. We have bought several copies for friends and relatives that were interested in what this book has to offer. I recommend this book for anyone that wants to improve the way they feel as well as loose weight....more info
Blood Types This is an excellent book that gives the reader knowledge of what foods work with their blood types. Highly recommend this book to everyone!...more info
hard to do First of all, I do not believe in infomercials. Second, I do not see any hard evidence to support this theory.This author calls himself a doctor. I do not see MD behind his name. Some of what he says is true, but most of it is only theory. It is impossible to get many of the products he mentioned in the book. Ezekiel bread, millet bread, rice bread,spelt pasta,Braggs Amino, i can not find in my GNC store. I live in a small town and we do not have any other health stores. I don't even know what some of this stuff is!. Now I like the meal replacements and snack products. Naturally he sells these on his web site. In spite of all of this I am going to try the 21 day starter program. I have to be suspicious of anyone that writes a diet book and sells the products. I wish he would sell the products I can not find....more info
Interesting I found this book to be interesting. I like the break down of different body types and blood types and what each should eat. Also, helpful exercise tips for each body type. There are wonderful recipes as well. It is like a health directory. I used some tips from the book and changed my diet accordingly, and it has helped me.

So far... so good... I got this book as a gift from my father, who has been successfully utilizing the principles of the book. The information about foods that were good for my blood type just made sense! I know that my body responds a certain way to certain kinds of foods, and this book helped me see why. It also provided the motivation I needed to start thinking healthy instead of just wishing it! I recommend this book to people who aren't looking for another fad diet, but who want to understand their bodies uniqueness and begin to eat and excercise accordingly....more info
Wonderfully surprised!!! I could not believe the difference eating for your bloodtype (mine's O) made! I was very sceptical, at first, so I only switched my breakfast - from "healthy" oatmeal every morning, to two scrambled eggs. Within only one week on only that change, I had lost four pounds!!! This is only my second week and I'm starting to change my lunches, now. I can hardly wait to see the results!...more info
Unkind to A blood types To the staff that wrote this book, one of you said that if "you have type A blood and expect to live to the life expectancy of 75, you're clearly mistaken" was just totally wrong. Can I give you some news? I had a great uncle who was type A and lived to be 91 and George Bush Sr and Jimmy Carter are type A and over 80 now. You could be a little more sensitive....more info
I am a believer I ordered BLOOD TYPE BODY TYPES and YOU a year ago in March. As a result of this lifestyle change, I have lost 50 lbs. After this dramatic change, my family members, co-workers, and friends began to ask me what did I do? I told them about the book. Unfortunately, they think that it is a diet. I explain to them that it is a LIFESTYLE change not a diet.
I can definitely say that I no longer feel sluggish or bloated. Being of an O type I found that the wheat, whey and yeast were contributor to my sudden sinus/allergies. In the beginning it seemed as if there was nothing appealing to the beneficial group. Now it is easy and appetizing. By incorporating excercize according to my
body shape, I have achieved the hour-glass shape and a leaner look. I prayed for a change for the rest of my life and God provided it to me. BLOOD TYPES BODY TYPES and YOU was the answer to my prayers....more info
Good compiliation of information I have read "Eat Right 4 Your Type" and "Body For Life". For a person who has not read these previously, this book, in a nutshell, takes both these concepts/programs and merges them together (as much as it can be merged) (Perhaps making it a less expensive alternative to the buying two books.) Please keep in mind my rating of three stars only reflects the usefullness of the information to me as I already follow a (very similiar) plan that I compiled as a result of reading the other two books. Mr. Chrisiano does an excellent job of putting the information in an easy and usable format. (So do the other authors) As the book stands alone, it would be more like a 4.5. But I must say that I am somewhat alarmed at the similarities yet the authors of the other books were not referenced. (and they were written first) If you already own, or have read, one or both of the other books mentioned I don't recommend it, any reasonable person would be able to tie the two together and come up with the same concept. If you don't own either of them, go for it. I firmly believe in the concept....more info
Forget everything you thought you knew. Forget everything you thought you knew about "doing the right thing for your body" and read this book. I have struggled with digestive disorders and food battles for the past 20 years. I dreaded eating meals because I never knew how I was going to feel afterwards. (bloated, headache, hungry, sleepy) I thought I was eating healthy with shredded wheat for breakfast and fresh baked pumpernickel/cucumber sandwiches for lunch... the "list of foods to avoid" section of my blood type was invaluable. Two days after eating from my beneficial food list and avoiding the "avoid list",which included shredded wheat and pumpernickel bread! I dropped five pounds, no bloating, nausea and my energy level has soared. if you are having a struggle with nutrition, weight or food issues... you'll be pleased with the contents of this book....more info
Changed my life I must tell you that at first I was very skeptical about the premise of the book--That a person's genetic characteristics, namely, blood type, could play a role in what foods one should eat and which foods should be avoided. But, I took the author's advice and put the diet to the test. The book outlines very nicely (based on an individual's blood type) which foods are beneficial to each blood type, which foods are neutural and which foods are to be avoided by each blood type.
As I took the advice, the results were incredible. This thing works and works fast! I felt better than I have in years. I guess its because my blood sugar levels stabalized. My blood pressure also improved as a result of the advice in this book. With ZERO exercise, although the book points out the importance of exercise, and gives great answers for how to best exercise based on your body's shape, I didn't work exercise due to my schedule at the time I started the plan. I LOST 10 pounds in two weeks! Incredible. I would highly recommend this book to any one who is not feeling their best or doesn't have the energy they should have. It will change lives. You will feel great and be much more healthy when you listen to Joesph Christiano, you may even live longer!...more info
Bloodtypes, Bodytypes, and YOU GREAT! GREAT! GREAT! I have been one of those people who has tried and read every diet plan from soups to nuts but this book is in a league of its own. I felt defeated and thought there was no hope for me to loose those extra 10 pounds by dieting until I started eating by my blood type. One of the best parts about this book is it has soooo many varieties of food for my blood type all laid out. The family meal planning works great because my husband is an O blood and I am an A. Finally I am not wasting my time exercising because now I know what my body type is and am following the 90-day program in the book. This book is like my own personally customized nutrition and exercise manual....more info
