What makes Type B an individual?
B is for balance! An omnivorous diet is recommended for Type B, with a focus on organic meats, dairy, and vegetables. Dr. D’Adamo cautions Type B against consuming chicken, corn, and wheat as those foods contain a protein lectin that interferes with metabolic function. When Type B is out of balance, they are at an increased risk for depression, insulin resistance, and hypothyroidism. Daily exercise that engages both the mind and body, such as golf or tennis, helps Type B to thrive.
