A blood type diet makes nutrition and health recommendations based on the genetic individuality of a person. Blood diet proponents feel that the blood type of a person is one of the major tools for understanding how an individual reacts to various kinds of food, stress and habits.

Also they need to develop peculiar life style habits that are suitable for their specific genetic makeup.

Since each person’s blood differs, in terms of chemistry, the blood type will easily determine what kind of food she or he can digest faster and easier. For example, whether a person can digest fruits or animal protein, or if they end up struggling with both.
