The blood type diet was developed by Peter D'Adamo, a naturopathic physician who theorizes that people respond to various foods depending on their blood type.
The theory behind the diet is the belief that eating foods with lectins (a type of protein) that are incompatible with a person's blood type can cause blood cell clumping, called agglutination, and result in health problems such as heart or kidney disease or cancer. D'Adamo also theorizes that a person's blood type affects their ability to digest various foods due to differences in digestive secretions associated with the different blood types.
By eating according to a meal plan designed for your specific blood type, D'Adamo suggests, you can digest food with greater efficiency, avoid the negative effect of certain lectins, and—in turn—lose weight and enhance your overall health.
