just found out I’m blood type o+ and based on the beginning of my research this does not make me overly happy, seeing as i really love olives and avocados. i’ve seen multiple lists from different sources though, and can’t wait to talk to my aunt this weekend about her in depth knowledge on eating for your blood type. more to come… 


Type O

Type O is the oldest blood type in human history. Those with type O digest meat better than any other blood type. Unlike type A, type O people produce a lot of hydrochloric acid in the stomach. However, Type Os have a hard time digesting dairy products and food containing gluten. The best diet for a type O is a greater ratio of proteins and less dairy and gluten. It would be best to exclude all dairy and include gluten-free foods in your diet. Foods that will benefit a type O person include sea kelp, cod, bluefish, halibut, mackerel, pike, rainbow trout, red snapper, salmon, sardines, sole, striped bass, sturgeon, swordfish, tilefish, white perch, yellow perch, yellowtail, beef, buffalo, heart, lamb, liver, mutton, veal, venison, kale, spinach and broccoli.

Foods to avoid include wheat gluten, corn, kidney beans, navy beans, lentils, cabbage, brussel sprouts, cauliflower, mustard greens, sugar, white flout, bacon, goose, ham, pork, barracuda, catfish, caviar, conch, herring, lox, octopus, Brazil nuts, cashews, litchi, peanuts, peanut butter, pistachios, poppy seeds, bulgur wheat flour, couscous flour, durum wheat flour, graham flour, soba noodles, semolina pasta, sprouted wheat flour, white flour, whole wheat flour, avocado, cabbage, eggplant, shiitake mushrooms, olives, potatoes and alfalfa sprouts.
