Most people who start any kind of diet do it for weight loss. For me, I found the Blood Type Diet appealing because my main goal was always overall health, not simply to lose weight. So, with that in mind, I started my Blood Type B diet 18 years ago and never looked back.
The first thing I noticed about changing my diet was a pretty sizeable increase in my energy levels. I remember soon after I started, I visited Washington D.C. with some friends. Despite running around between all the touristy locales, I found myself never getting too tired while my friends couldn’t keep up.
A few weeks in, not only had my energy levels continued to rise, but the seasonal allergies that usually plagued me this time of year were nowhere to be found. The pollen and natural elements that usually left me sniffly did nothing. My immune system in general felt bolstered, as I saw people around me falling ill to the flu and other illnesses while I remained healthy. Over the course of many years, I only fell victim to the flu and the common cold a handful of times. A friend of mine used to joke that my box of tissues would last so long all it did was collect dust.
In summary, I feel very fortunate to have come across the ER4YT program. I became more conscious of what food I was eating and how that was affecting my life. Some local people still refer to me as the “Eat Right 4 Your Type” lady and after all these years, I'm glad they have incorporated it into their lives and they have noticed a difference as well.
