A Note on the Blood Type Diet – A Personal Viewpoint

The blood type diet theory is flawed in the sense that it does not recognize the basic body type requirements generated by the three forces/humors of nature (Vata, Pitta and Kapha) that control the physicality of affair and the body of humans and animals. Only a fraction of the body’s energy requirements are met through aliment, and there are many more influences on the body than one’s blood type. The 6,000-year ancient medical system of Ayurveda accounts for most of these influences. One’s constitutional body type is not as simply and easily determined as one’s blood type. The theory of blood type foods is really based on guesswork, not on science or age-tested traditional knowledge as found in Ayurveda, Chinese Medicine, Greek medicine or ancient Egyptian medicine.
