Although this book has a lot of scientific words, and is not very easy to understand, I found it very interesting and helpful. I do believe Dr. D'Adamo is onto something. The best parts are the testimonials that are sprinkled throughout the book from people who were really experiencing some painful and sometimes life-threatening symptoms, and then had a very quick turn-around in their overall health after eating the right foods for their blood type. Even if you just skim through this to get the ...more

Though I've been trying to limit the amount of books I give a five to, I could give no less to "Live Right 4 Your Type." This book was my first exposure to Dr.D'Adamo's work. I had not previously heard of him, and I'm not nearly far enough along in education to be considered a pre-med student, none the less, I found the book quite resourceful and full of valuable, organized information that can be essential to learning to optimize our health. Times are always changing of course, as well as healt ...more
Again, I found this book was great for me. Many do not believe foods, meds, etc, based on blood type can help/hurt your body. But, it does apply to me!
As others have said, unless you are well versed in the subjects of chemistry, food, and bodily functions, much of this book may go over your head. However, there is enough understandable information for those of us who require simpler descriptions to help us comprehend the importance of eating for our blood-type.

For the first time ever I now understand why I balk so much at the idea of not eating meat, and increasing in other foods my body reacts so badly to, whereas my husband can eat things I
Though we are just beginning the avoidance of foods that are not good for our blood type, I am already feeling a difference. I have no health issues other than a bit tired in the afternoon. My daughter on the other hand has joint pain, gut issues, mood swings, a hard time focusing. We are excited to see how she does. I would encourage everyone to read this and give it a try if not for just a week.
Here are some examples for what it suggests...type a should avoid food like potatoes, bananas, toma

3 years after the book "Eat Right 4 for Types", this book is an update and more detailed reference. Worthwhile reading it if you find the previous one useful and interesting. I do.
I really like the concept, and I like the book of food lists. But the more I read by this guy, the more confused I get. In one place it says I'm supposed to have 2-3 servings of juice a day, and in another it says I really shouldn't have any juice other than lemon water in the morning. Same with red meat: in one book he says it's best avoided but is ok once a week or so, and in another it's absolute poison. Like I said in another review, this diet is best taken as loose guidelines rather than a ...more

Very interesting research. I learned a lot about living/eating right according to my blood type for optimal health.
I don't know about this. The concept of eating/avoiding certain foods b/c of your blood type is interesting, but I'm not sure about the science. In my personal, very non-scientific experience, I've found some of this advice to apply (I should avoid dairy) and some not so much (I should also avoid wheat). I had a very expensive acupuncturist base her diagnosis and advice on this book, which I kind of consider cheating. The book struck me as horoscope-ish in that you could say "oh yeah that's me" ...more

Although I loved that a lot of scientific research when into this diet by blood type, I had difficulty processing all the information, given my lack of science background. However, I understood it enough to make some dietary changes and feel better than I have in years! I now want to read D'Adamo's diet and cook book by blood type.

I read this because I know two people who recovered from ME after applying the principles in this book. One stopped being vegan after 25 years and introduced a little meat into her diet. The other stopped eating meat and became fully vegetarian. Impressive. I'm lead to believe that this book has no scientific basis whatsoever.

because of my wheat allergy, i started researching about the effects of different plants on different organs and found out about lectins, and this book goes more in depth about lectins. i find them really facinating. still don't know my blood type, but sort of excitied, its like learning about my signs all over again!
Because this book had so much information on the various blood types and how foods work with the various types, I found this book quite interesting. It was interesting to find out how close it was to the different family members in my household, and it was right on the money!
Liked the organization of this book, hated what it had to tell me about my blood type. You grow up eating one thing that's your favorite and you find out it's bad for you. Sigh. To give it up or not, lol.
Motivational. Useful book to find out which foods are most probable to be beneficial to your blood type....
I found that either that or just food in moderation helped.
I bought the app for my smart phone this is the best one of all his books.
Changed the way I look at food and diet. It has changed my life and my health.

Very useful, especially for those of us with weird food allergies.
Just when you thought you knew yourself!
