"What would you say if I told you that the secret to healthy, vigorous, and disease-free living might be as simple as knowing your blood type," ask Dr. Peter D'Adamo and Catherine Whitney, and in Eat Right 4 Your Type, they shows us the simple answer.

If you've ever suspected that not everyone should eat the same thing or do the same exercise, you're right. In fact, what foods we absorb well and how our bodies handle stress differ with each blood type.

Your blood type reflects your internal chemistry. It is the key that unlocks the mysteries of disease, longevity, fitness, and emotional strength. It determines your susceptibility to illness, the foods you should eat, and ways to avoid the most troubling health problems.

Only recently have all the pieces of the scientific and clinical puzzle started coming together. Dr. D'Adamo has spent the past fifteen years researching the connections among blood type and exercise, food, and disease, and his research is built on thirty years of work done by his father.

In Eat Right 4 Your Type he shows:
which foods, spices, teas, and condiments help someone of your blood type maintain optimal health and ideal weight;
which vitamins and supplements to emphasize or avoid;
which medications function best in your system;
whether your stress goes to your muscles or your nervous system;
whether your stress is relieved better through aerobics or meditation;
whether you should walk, swim or play tennis or golf as your mode of exercise;
how knowing your blood type can help you avoid many common viruses and infections;
how knowing your blood type can help you fight back against life-threatening diseases;
how to slow down the aging process by avoiding factors specific to your blood type that cause rapid cell deterioration.

Eat Right 4 Your Type provides a clear, simple life plan that anyone c...

For over 20 years, Peter D’Adamo has extensively researched the connections between blood type, food, and disease. Combining his findings with previously established research by other scientists in his field, D’Adamo published his first book, Eat Right 4 Your Type, in 1996. The only book to offer individualized health and diet programs based on the differences between blood types, Eat Right 4 Your Type became a New York Times bestseller and brought worldwide recognition to D’Adamo’s blood type theories. NutriBooks named it one of the ten most influential health books ever written.

D’Adamo’s next book, Cook Right 4 Your Type, is the kitchen companion for anyone on the blood type diet that includes recipes and 30-day menu plans for each blood type. The third book in the series, Live Right 4 Your Type, offers readers a complete program for healthy living based on an individual’s blood type. The Eat Right 4 Your Type Complete Blood Type Encyclopedia, published in 2002, is the ultimate one-stop source for information about ailments, food, herbs and supplements as they relate to blood type. D’Adamo’s latest book, Eat Right 4 Your Baby, is a breakthrough blood type-based strategy for fertility, pregnancy, nursing and raising a healthy baby.

Named “Physician of the Year” in 1990 by the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians, D’Adamo currently serves on the Board of Trustees for his alma mater, Bastyr University, the nation’s leading naturopathic institution. In 1999, respected industry analysts named Eat Right 4 Your Type, “One of the Ten Most Influential Health Books of the Century,” and Dr. Peter D’Adamo the “Most Intriguing Health Author of 1999.” The Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine hailed Eat Right 4 Your Type as the “Boldest of the New Books on Alternative Medicine.” An international phenomenon, Eat Right 4 Your Type, Cook Right 4 Your Type, and Live Right 4 Your Type have been translated into over 50 languages worldwide.

D’Adamo is the founder and editor emeritus of the Journal of Naturopathic Medicine. He maintains a small private practice in Stamford, Connecticut, and lectures around the world. For further information, please visit D’Adamo’s award-winning website,

Catherine Whitney is the author of several nonfiction works of popular psychology, health and personal growth, including The Tufts University Guide to Total Nutrition, winner of the American Medical Writers Best Medical Book of the Year.

  • Great book, very informative and well, seemingly very well researched. I have tried just about everything on the planet from diets to pills to patches to ridiculous workouts and this has been the answer to my problems. I feel better, I've lost 14 lbs in just 5 weeks. I think I've found my solution!

  • Eat Right For Your Type

    I have had a copy of this book for several years and my husband and I both try to follow the diet. At least we try to not eat foods that are on our avoid lists. The recent copy I purchased was for my daughter. I'm hoping she will give it a try. I was bothered with a skin rash on my legs that I couldn't get rid of. I had a biopsy and was diagnosed with Granuloma annulare. My dermatologist said my immune system was "out of whack." After reading in this book that a lectin in chicken attacks my immune system, I quit eating chicken, the rash disappeared, and has not returned. The book is very interesting and does make sense when you think about it.

  • Excellent Book.

    I had been working out for 3 years and running on the treadmill as well...just basically maintaining my weight. I started reading this book knowing my blood type...and it works. With the continued exercise, but diet changes based upon this book, I lost over 40 pounds in 5 months. Realize that the weigh loss seems to occur in steps, but I went from around 245-250 lbs. down to a very consistent 205. My cholesterol is down to 125, triglycerides, 27, etc., etc. etc. This not only brings down your weight, but makes you healthier on the inside. I haven't been "sick" in almost a year and even my seasonal allergies seem to be lighter than before. I recommended to a friend and work who's a body builder at 189 lbs. and he still lost 10 lbs. in 2 weeks. No kidding.

  • Eat Right for Your Type

    I have been under allergists for 30+ years due to a variety of problems. Recently I was tested via a new blood test that was recommended by my allergist since it covered much more than the standard allergy test. As a result I found that I was eating a lot of foods that were not right for me and changed my diet. About six months later I picked up this book at a library sale and looked at type O recommendations. They matched what my very expensive blood test results indicated. Recently I visited my allergist and shared my experience, that this book aligned with the blood test and she agreed with the book. I wish I had known 50 years ago what this book indicates, my health would have improved at a much younger age but I find that even though I am in my seventies my physical reaction to an appropriate diet showed dramatic improvement and a much improved energy level. I purchased a number of these books and gave them to my descendants who all have sensitive systems.

  • Unsure?

    Well, I found the concept of the diet interesting, but I can't say I 100% agree with Dr D'Adamo. Everyone needs a balanced diet, but the book basically says that due to what your blood type is your diet should be (vegetarian, vegan, carnivorous, etc). I agreed with some of his points that made sense, like your body being able to better when you consume unrefined foods , but others like your personality is correlated with blood type is non-sense. For example: my blood type is A+, he says that type A's are paranoid and cannot deal with pressure, and essential crack under pressure. That is absolutely untrue for me, because everybody marvels at how I deal with stressful situations. I logically handle situations, and I am most definitely not paranoid.
