Like most people, I didn’t take my health too seriously until I got older. When I turned 40 I was 230 pounds and increasingly concerned about the history of diabetes that ran in my family. After looking at lots of different diet plans, I decided to try the Blood Type Diet for my Type O blood. The weight began to melt off at a pace I could hardly believe. All I did was eliminate the foods that were problematic for my type; I wasn’t even exercising or doing anything extra!
Recently, I found out that I was having heart trouble when I went to the doctor. Part of the problem was tied to how my body manufactured and used insulin improperly. I trusted Dr. D’Adamo’s guidance and picked up his book on the topic, Cardiovascular Disease: Fight it with the Blood Type Diet. By following the more specific protocols in the book for only six months (which included carbohydrate and sugar reduction), all my heart health issues have improved by leaps and bounds. I also supplemented with Deflect O, which blocked a lot of harmful lectin reactions in my body that wreaked havoc on my insulin levels and subsequently, my heart health.
I am now 48 years old and weigh around 165 pounds, the same weight I was when I was 18! I have more energy and have regulated ominous issues that were looming from my family history. I can’t thank Dr. D’Adamo enough for his diet guidance that goes so far beyond the over-inflated goal of weight loss. The weight reduction has just been one excellent component of my overall better health that I will be enjoying and maintaining for years to come.
