    1. November 11, 1997This was a review that had to be subjective because the book must be experienced rather than intellectualized. This review also goes back 20 years but in light of books and information coming out about the harmful effects of lectins on one’s body and immune system, I think it fits in well. So, back in time to 1997:At the time that this book came to me for reviewing, there were several major stresses occurring in my life simultaneously, and I was unnerved by how wearing they we [...]

    2. I’m not sure it’s fair for me to review this book because I only read the parts relevant to my blood type. My copy is 21 years old, so inevitably some advice, such as avoiding coconut oil because of its high fat content, is outdated. Nutrition is kind of a crapshoot anyway, as advice varies drastically from one diet to the next. I find it interesting that many naturopaths subscribe to this way of eating, especially where bio-individuality is at the forefront of nutrition, but I must say the [...]

    3. The bible never mentions apples. The Book of Genesis only refers to the fruit from the tree of knowledge and I believe that Eve caused the fall of man with a tomato; it is the Devil's fruit. All my life I felt like an oddity because I so detest the gooey red mess until I read this book. D'Adamo explains in the intro that type A blood groups can't digest the Devil's fruit because of insufficient stomach acid. This made sense so I read the rest of the book and gave up milk. WithIn 72 hours I felt [...]

    4. Some of the concepts in this book are not fully scientifically supportable, but the diet may still make lots and lots of people feel a whole lot better and attain a much greater level of health! These two things are not mutually exclusive.Reasons the claims made about the scientific merit of the exact food lists provided for each blood type are unconvincing (on the whole) to me include:1. I have read more than half a dozen detailed and methodical explanations of why the scientific concepts in th [...]

    5. This book came up in a conversation with Kathleen before she went east — a relative of hers had gotten significant benefit from following some or another nugget of counterintuitive advice from it, which sort of thing is perfect grist for our style of shit-shooting. Anyway, I thought the premise sounded too weird to ignore, so I checked it out from the library.Basically, D’Adamo says that your blood type determines (or is at least the primary influence on) your metabolism and your ability to [...]

    6. I borrowed this book from my Mom years ago. I set it aside thinking it would be too bio-scientific for my taste. I was wrong about that. It was definitely written so the average person could easily comprehend.This book was a very interesting read. It walked through the evolution of blood types and how they formed the premise of human diets today. I concentrated on the O types since that's what I am.My success with this nutrition plan was achieved in the opposite way of most. In my quest to live [...]

    7. Well I finally finished reading this book only because my library wouldn't let me keep it any longer. I started reading it because I heard a lot of different opinions about Blood Type Diet and wanted to know more about it. While reading this book, I actually tried to avoid foods which are harmful for my blood type. Since I felt pretty healthy before this diet anyways, I did not experience any significant benefits.This January, a new study came out, which found no scientific evidence for the Bloo [...]

    8. I don't think it is fair for me to write that I read this book because in actuality, I skimmed it. A coworker suggested this book about two years ago. I immediately purchased it and went to the doctor to confirm my blood type. Shortly after, the same coworker said that her doctor informed her that the book is junk science. I never told my doctor why I needed to know my blood type, so I can't 100% concur.I will agree that there is no way that I am limiting myself to foods outlined in this book fo [...]

    9. The idea of this work, that your blood type determines what you should eat and how you should exercise, is compelling, so I borrowed it from a friend. Of course, I started by skimming my own blood type, and I found it to be much like reading a horoscope in a Sunday paper. Sure, there were some things that seemed to fit, but there were also some things that were the exact opposite of my experience. I laughed out loud when I read that certain Types are subject to heart disease and cancer! Oh reall [...]

    10. This is one of the first books that I feel is not really a "diet" book based on "a shift in human consumption" but is based on scientific, blood-related equations that happen when you eat food appropriate or inappropriate for your type. Additionally, after reading it, I didn't put it down and cry over all the things I couldn't eat. I actually related very much to the foods on the lists - for example, when a food is listed to avoid for my type, I usually responded with "yeah, I don't really like [...]

    11. An interesting approach to diet and lifestyle, but a bit too generalized to be effective. I thought this would be a helpful tool to tweak my eating habits, but it reads more like a "fad diet" book. There are a few effective arguments and good advise to be found in here, but it just has too much pseudo-jargon to be useful. This book just didn't resonate with me.

    12. Some helpful information but its actually much like a horiscope - general enough to apply to nearly anyone. I was actually really excited by the book and its premise but after doing some research I found out that Dr. D'Adamo is passing on information as truth when its actually scientifically false. And it's not just small facts in his work, it is a lot including his historical information about the blood types and how nutrients are absorbed into the body from our food. I was really disheartened [...]

    13. The author tells stories instead of backing up his ideas with science. No references at all in this book. Unless research confirms the ideas of the author, that is all they are, ideas and not facts. Also consider the fact that he published his book/ideas in 1997, if it hasn't been confirmed by now, will it ever?

    14. When I look back on the foods I am drawn to and what foods make me feel better, Dr. D'Adamo's explanations made sense to me.

    15. Awesome book. My family and I read his original 1997 book which stood the test of time and proved to be worth its weight in gold. (Especially after I tested the concept by ignoring type O recommendations for several years in my 20's and trying to be vegan talk about contrast. Live and learn!) Anyhow, the revised and updated edition is even better and definitely worth buying. I was very happy to see the food lists expanded to include items that weren't mainstream or available in the late 90's, as [...]

    16. I'm sorry to see so many giving in to doctor's claims of quakery and not using some common sense. This idea of blood types and how foods affect people based on that has come at a time in my food evolution where it makes absolute sense. I've studied and experienced so many theories of food-styles--the most recent being the raw food diet. Within them is always the catch of how some foods work better or worse for different people. So why is that? This seems to be a poosible answer. I find that many [...]

    17. I hate "diet books." I am not really big on self-help books either.The detoxification retreat I went to recommended this book very highly - in fact, it is the only nutrition plan they recommend. Thus, I read the book while there, and wrote down the pointers for my blood type (Type 0) in my notebook. I also read about a thousand reviews of the diet, from physicians to proponents, skeptics to housewives who have been following it.Interesting.The theory sounds like a load of crap. Blood type, as ma [...]

    18. Okay, first, some clarification: I did not read this entire book. I read through my blood type, O, and I perused my husband's blood type, A. This book started out a little scientific-y, basically arguing the premise that if your blood fuels your body, then what you eat should fuel your blood. And, as we know there are different blood types, so it stands to reason that they could be fueled differently.I picked up this book for a variety of reasons, including that I'm trying to lose a little weigh [...]

    19. I know some people find this book to be great, but I find it to be hooey quackery. Lots of contradictions and "maybes" and "possiblies" and "not everyones".Apparently, I'm supposed to eat tofu, soy cheese (which is not food, in my opinion), walk, and do yoga. If that's my existence, I might as well just keel over and die. I'd dig the hole first, but I'm not supposed to do any strenuous activities :) I am supposed to eat peanut butter and pineapple, though. YUM!!!! I must be one of the "exception [...]

    20. I mostly just read the introduction and the chapter on my blood type. But from what I did read, I got a pretty strong impression of the type of advice that was being dispensed.Basically, it's like vaguely-racist astrology. The ideas behind the advice were mostly sound. (Including suggestions to eat more of certain fruits and vegetables, and to avoid others, with reference to pseudo-scientific reasoning for how these foods affect the bodies of certain blood types and thereby affect the way they f [...]

    21. I've dipped in and out of this book for a long time, but never read it cover to cover. Definitely very interesting, makes you think a lot about the food you are eating and in my experience seems to work quite well (at least for me). However I did find the explanation for importance of blood type a bit lacking (the first few chapters) and I still feel it is not quite as simple as there being 4 blood types and 4 ways of eating. Within each type is further complexity based on your own genetic make [...]

    22. في هذا الكتاب يربط الكاتب العديد من العوامل بفصيلة الدم ويشير إلى أن فصيلة الدم لها عوامل وراثية يربطها بالانسان القديم قبل الميلاد ب15000-20000 سنة وأن حاملين هذه الفصيلة اليوم يشتركون مع الانسان الاول في الصفات المشتركة صفات شخصية وحركية وغذائية فمثلا أصحاب فئة O كان أجدادهم [...]

    23. After reading this book I can't tell you how dangerous I think it is. If there was a negative rating I would have chosen it.The idea behind this book is that certain blood types should only eat certain foods and completely omit other foods from their diets. I can see a whole hatfull of problems with that theory and that's what this is really. Theory. Tell me when and where in the history of life that there is any proof or evidence to support this?I've heard of some close friends that have subjec [...]

    24. Fascinating theory that blood types determine body chemistry and therefore what types of foods agree with our systems and those that essentially act like poisons to us. Problem: may require lifestyle changes if the foods you love to eat are on the "Avoid" list. A friend reports miraculous results including 30 pound weight loss and improvements in other ailments such as digestion, skin and hair issues. Why aren't we taught these things? Why don't doctors pay attention to these things? Perhaps we [...]

    25. I picked this book up out of curiosity. I have seen many different varieties of diet, and most of them just have not ever grabbed me like this did. As I was reading over the eating plan for my blood type, I found that things that are recommended to avoid are many of the things I just do not like - and I never knew why. Things that I crave are on the beneficial list. It resonated with me. I am making changes and hope that it helps. I hate to take this out of my "currently reading" portion it is a [...]

    26. I admire Dr Peter D'adamo's work, his books introduced me to a world of possibilities that is both scientific and practical. I'm a blood type O that grow up among siblings and Parents of an A blood type and eventually got Married to a B blood type. I understand now why I always have trouble with cheese and milk but not necessarily Yogurt and Laban, and why I crave some of the bad foods for my blood type, and why some people are basically resistant to this more individualized new (Not one size fi [...]

    27. For a non-fiction book about Diets, Blood Types and a brief history of how the blood types came to be, this was a pretty interesting read. It is interesting the foods that do not agree with certain blood types and the more this world includes Gluten Free I wonder if this book has it right. Needless to say it wants me to not eat strawberries and I really have a hard time with that particular paragraph. Well worth the read and I feel I gained knowledge when I read this book.

    28. Interesting book. It confirmed what I already knewat I am not cut out to be vegetarian. Apparently my blood type needs red meat! But when I got to the beverage section and it said I should avoid coffee and dairy products I stopped reading. I mean really? No coffee? What would the point of getting up in the morning be then? And no dairy? I eat Golden Spoon frozen yogurt every single day and I love milk! But still an interesting book on blood types.

    29. It was interesting, especially because many of the foods that I should avoid for my blood type are ones that my allergy testing showed that I was allergic to. I wonder about the water amount recommended--it doesn't seem like it's enough. I currently drink 4 or 5 times the amount recommended for my blood type, but I still feel thirsty most of the time. I'm trying to get the courage to go all out and try it since I already follow most of it just because it's what my body already figured out.

    30. The book which explains - perhaps - why some people thrive on a vegetarian diet, and others on a high-protein one. If the theory is true, the book is a sensible and practical one, with good ideas for increasing health by eating according to blood group. Even if the theory is entirely wrong (as is possible) there are still some good suggestions for general health eating.
