Recommended Foods for Blood Type B
The body has a natural ability to heal itself and is constantly striving for balance.
Eat variety of foods right for your type and consume the right amount of food and drink to achieve and maintain a healthy body weight.
Foods listed below are recommendations only. If you feel fatigued or discomfort after a meal, check the ingredients; learn the source of your problem.
Keep your body hydrated. When water is consumed in sufficient amounts, your urine becomes colorless. Drinking two glasses of water 30 minutes before every meal, while cutting calories, may help you lose weight. For optimum health, your body should maintain an alkaline state—pH 7.4 is the desired level.
Type B’s thrive on deep-sea fish like cod and salmon, which are rich in nutritious oils. White fish, such as cod, halibut and sole, are excellent sources of high-quality protein. Avoid all shellfish—crab, lobster, prawns, mussels, etc., which contain lectins disruptive to the type B system.
Legumes (Beans & Peas)
Legumes are a healthy substitute for animal protein.
Beans, peas, and lentils are among the most versatile and nutritious foods available. They are typically low-fat, and high in fiber, folate, potassium, iron, and magnesium, contain beneficial fats, and soluble and insoluble fiber.
Grains, especially whole grains, are essential to type B’s diet, however wheat, rye, buckwheat, and corn impact their weight.
Type B’s can eat a variety of grains and cereals, especially rice, oat, millet, and spelt—the key is balance. Type B’s should avoid rye, which contains a lectin that settles in the vascular system, causing blood disorders and the potential for strokes. Corn and buckwheat are also major factors in type B weight gain.
Eat fruits alone or one hour apart from any other foods—best time is in the morning, on an empty stomach.
Incorporate at least one or two beneficial fruits daily to take advantage of their pro-B medicinal qualities. Bananas, cranberries, grapes, watermelon, pineapple, plums are highly recommended.
Herbs, Spices & Condiments
Use herbs and spices to enhance and balance the flavor of your dishes, as well as improve your digestive and immune systems.
Type B’s do best with warming spices, such as ginger, horseradish, curry powder, and cayenne pepper. The exceptions are white and black pepper, which contain problem lectins.
Our health is truly dependent on the quality and quantity of the water we drink—Natural pure water is our best choice!
Water is your body’s principal chemical component. From nerve impulses that travel around the body, to the transport of oxygen and nutrients throughout the system, water plays an integral role. Water not only enables nutrition, but it also removes toxins.
