Recent studies by Dr. Peter D’Adamon proclaim that by following specific diet and lifestyle suggestions according to your blood type will lead you to a healthier life.
The rarest of all blood types, AB type is the only blood type resulted from intermingling rather than environment. Type AB is sometimes very similar to A type and other times very similar to B type. To live the healthiest life, AB blood types should follow these recommendations:
1. Diet. AB Types possess the Type A’s low stomach acid and Type B’s tolerance for meat. Therefore, the stomach is not able to fully digest meat so the majority is stored as fat. All cured or smoked meats should be avoided because it could potentially cause stomach cancer for those with low stomach acid. It is recommended that AB types consume foods like tofu, seafood, dairy and green vegetables. The most beneficial choices for seafood include: red snapper, sardines, salmon, tuna, and mahi-mahi. Cultured dairy such as yogurt and kefir are also very beneficial for AB types.
2. Exercise. To stay balanced, exercise is vital for AB types. It is recommended that AB types participate in aerobic exercise, such as running or cycling, three days a week. AB types should do calming exercises, such as yoga or tai chi, two days a week.
3. Stress. In terms of stress hormones, AB types most closely resemble Type O tendencies through their overproduction of adreneline. AB types, like B types, also suffer physically in the result of strong emotions. An AB type’s greatest danger is their tendency to internalize emotions, particularly anger and hostility. Managing stress as an AB type can be done primarily through regular exercise
4. Lifestyle. It is recommended that AB types abide by the following lifestyle habits:
- Avoid ritualistic thinking and fixating on issues, especially those you can’t control or influence.
- Practice visualization techniques daily.
- Engage in a community neighborhood or other group activity that gives you a meaningful connection to a group.
- Cultivate your social nature in welcoming environments. Avoid highly competitive situations.
- Develop a clear plan for goals and tasks in order to avoid rushing.
- Practice 45 to 60 minutes of aerobic exercise at least twice a week. Practice either yoga, meditation, or basic stretching daily.
- Carve out alone time. Have at least one sport, hobby or activity that you do independently without others.
- To feel more energized, break up your workday with some physical acitivity.
- Be sure to make lifestyle changes gradually rather than attempt to tackle them all at once.
