Fast facts on the A positive (and A and O negative) blood type diet- https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/319399

rH – and + FACTOR…

  • Individuals with type A+ (A- and O-) blood may be better suited to natural, vegetarian diets. (No GMO or Heat altered Modern processed foods) 
  • People with type A blood have been shown to have lower levels of stomach-acid than other blood types, so a meat-based diet may not be digested as easily as a vegetarian based one.
  • Research has suggested that certain blood types may be at risk of developing specific diseases or conditions (Heart, Mind Alzheimers, Dementia, Arthritis, Allergies, etc) 
  • People with type A A+ (A- and O-) blood also have a higher natural propensity for developing other diseases, such as cancer and diabetes. Heart, Mind Alzheimers, Dementia, Arthritis, Allergies, forgetfulness and brain fog…

What is the A blood type?

Blood has an array of cells that are needed for proper body function. These include plasma, red and white blood cells and platelets.

Antigens are also present in blood and are responsible for triggering a response by the immune system to counter attacks from foreign substances, such as bacteria and viruses.

One in three people in the United States has A positive blood type, making it the second most common in the country. As such, it can be a good type to have if a person in the U.S. needs a blood transfusion or wishes to donate blood.

People with A A+ (A- and O-) positive blood type can receive the following blood types:

  • A positive
  • A negative
  • O positive
  • O negative

A negative is rarer, with 1 in 16 people having the blood group, and able to receive only A negative and O negative transfusions.

The common blood types vary in different countries, so if you are outside the U.S. and need a blood transfusion be sure to check for the common types in your area.

Be sure to make the necessary arrangements if you are in a part of the world with fewer A positive donors, such as Asia, as it may be harder to receive the treatment you need.

  • Foods to avoid
  • Takeaway

Blood type and diet-

People with type A ( also A- and O-) blood have been shown to have lower levels of stomach-acid than other blood types, so a meat-based diet may not be digested as easily as a vegetarian based one.

Different blood types are believed to have different reactions to certain foods. The blood type A diet is designed to provide the most benefits to those with blood type A+

(Also works for A- and O-)

D’Adamo argues that when the blood comes in contact with certain food components, a chemical reaction occurs, specifically with proteins called lectin. Lectins (ANTIBODIES), which are proteins found in food, have believed to have a direct effect on the blood and the digestive tract.

Antibodies may be ‘INSIDE’ OR ON THE ‘OUTSIDE’ OF THE SURFACE OF THE BLOOD CELL-

These proteins bind to cells within the body, causing them to clump together and potentially cause hormonal disruptions. This disruption has a similar effect on the body as a foreign substance might.

Recommended foods-

People with type A+, A- AND O- (RH FACTOR) blood have been shown to have lower levels of stomach-acid than other blood types, so a meat-based diet may not be digested as easily as a vegetarian based one.

Certain foods are recommended for people with type A also A+, A- AND O- (RH FACTOR) blood TYPES to eat, as well as AVOID, in order to maintain optimal health. According to the diet, these are the foods that those with blood type A may benefit from:

Animal proteins-Although people with type A+, (A-, O-)  blood may be best suited to a vegetarian diet, some animal products are allowed, including:

  • chicken – Not Factory raised)  (FREE RANGE and not Fed GMO)
  • turkey — Not Factory raised) (FREE RANGE and not Fed GMO)

According to the diet, people with type A (A- O-) blood may consume most kinds of seafood with the most beneficial being:  Not Factory raised) (FREE RANGE and not Fed GMO)

There has not been rigorous scientific study on the blood-type diet, as stated by D’Adamo himself, aside from a 2014 PLoS ONE

Recommended Fruits for Blood Type O+…

Eat fruits alone or one hour apart from any other foods—best time is in the morning, on an empty stomach.

Fruits are an excellent alternative for type O’s. Eat a piece of fruit rather than a slice of bread or pasta if losing weight is your goal!

Fruits (PEELED AND SEEDED) are nature’s medicines packed with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and many phytonutrients. Their unique nutritional profile help the body stay fit and healthy.

Plums, prunes, and figs are very beneficial for type O’s. Red, blue, and purple fruits tend to cause an alkaline, rather than an acidic, reaction in the digestive tract. Type O’s digestive tract needs the balance of the alkaline to reduce the possibility of ulcers and irritations of the stomach lining.

Prunes are great source of vitamin A and mineral boron. Boron may help prevent osteoporosis. Prunes also impart a mild laxative effect due to their high content of the natural sugar, sorbitol.

Dried Figs are high-fiber and rich source of potassium, calcium, and iron. Figs may help reduce the risk of heart disease.

Oranges, tangerines, and strawberries should be avoided because of their high acid content. Most other berries are OK, but stay away from blackberries, which contain a lectin that aggravates type O’s digestion.

Cherries are low-calorie and rich in antioxidants. Sour cherries contain more anthocyanin than any other fruit. Anthocyanin may help reduce inflammation and ease the pain of arthritis and gout.

Grapefruit also has a high acid content, but it can be eaten in moderation because it exhibits alkaline properties after digestion.

Type O’s also have an extreme sensitivity to coconut and products containing coconut.

Pure water is the best choice for hydration. For occasional variety, you can drink juices, but avoid high-sugar juices. 

Pineapple juice can be helpful in avoiding water retention and bloating. 

Black cherry juice is also beneficial because of its alkalinity. Fresh vegetable juices are better for type O’s because of their alkalinity. Mix vegetable juices with fruits to improve flavor.
