Nutrition Tips for Blood Type O
- Pay attention to protein intake. Seafood, beef, nuts, and beans are best choices.
- Choose foods with healthy fats; limit foods high in saturated fat. Avoid foods with trans fat. Plant oils (olive oil), nuts (flaxseed), and fish (sea bass, perch, red snapper) are the healthiest sources.
- Choose a fiber-filled diet rich in whole grains, vegetables, and fruits.
- Choose good carbs, not no carbs.
- Calcium intake is important. Okra, almonds, collard greens, spinach, kelp, broccoli, sesame seeds, and celery are best sources.
- Drink water to quench thirst. Skip sugary drinks (including 100 percent fruit juices), milk (including flavored), or sweetened teas. You may drink one to two cups 100-percent fruit juice as part of daily fruit consumption, but only if freshly squeezed.
- Consume less salt. Choose more fresh foods, fewer processed foods.
- A daily multivitamin with vitamins C, complex B, and K may add an extra health boost.
- A daily probiotic supplement restores the balance of microflora, contributing to immune function. Discuss options with a practitioner familiar with probiotics.
