Keep Your 2020 New Year’s Resolutions With The Blood Type Diet

It’s that time of year when many of us set out to create healthier versions of ourselves. It’s a new year, a fresh start and the perfect time to focus on improving our health and well-being. It’s no surprise that the top three New Year’s resolutions are to eat better, lose weight and exercise more. But it’s also no surprise that by the time the snow melts, 80% of people who made resolutions have dropped them.

What is it about resolutions that make them so hard to keep? Despite the best of intentions, more of us break them than keep them. It could be that we are a little overzealous when we make them. And yes, we DO have busy schedules that can get in the way. But what it really comes down to is this. Did we make a resolution that we can actually stick to? Is it right for us?

The Blood Type Diet is a personalized nutrition solution designed for what makes you uniquely you. Keeping those New Year’s resolutions has never been easier.

"When you eat better, you feel better."

If you’ve ever suspected that not everyone should eat the same thing or do the same exercise, you’re right. When it comes to diet, one size does not fit all. And it’s your blood type that reflects your unique internal chemistry, revealing the nutritional approach that is right for you.

When certain proteins in the food we eat, known as lectins, are incompatible with our blood type, they attach themselves to the walls of the digestive tract, initiating inflammation and other injurious processes. A food that is beneficial for one blood type may be harmful for another. For example, a diet that includes beef and lamb may offer benefits for someone with Blood Type O, yet be harmful for someone with Blood Type A. Likewise, a vegetarian diet may work well for some blood types, but not for others.

Eating right for your blood type (adding Beneficials and eliminating Avoids) can restore the natural protective functions of your immune system, reset your metabolic clock and clear your blood of harmful lectins. The simple truth is that when you eat better, you feel better. And when you feel better, you want to continue feeling that way and stay healthy.

"Losing weight doesn't have to be a struggle."

Each year nearly half of all Americans share the same resolution – to lose weight. How many of us get ourselves geared up for a miserable battle of willpower that we are unable or unwilling to sustain? Year after year we repeat the conflict. But losing weight doesn’t have to be a struggle.

When you eat right for your blood type, you live in harmony with your unique biology. Achieving and maintaining a healthy weight happens easily and naturally because your body is in a state of total wellness. In fact, people who follow The Blood Type Diet report that it just “feels right” for them. Even when weight loss is the primary goal, they find themselves happiest about how good they feel! Shedding pounds becomes an effortless byproduct of a personalized approach to overall health.

The weight profiles below offer guidelines on foods that promote weight gain and loss. Check out the table for your blood type!

"When exercise makes you feel good, you want more of it."

So what about exercise? Does your blood type offer insight on how best to move your body? The answer is yes!

Exercising right for your type depends on how your unique genetic profile is programmed to deal with stress. For example, someone with blood type O benefits tremendously from regular, brisk exercise that taxes the cardiovascular and muscular-skeletal systems, thus helping them to de-stress. Blood Type As, however, have naturally higher cortisol levels, making it harder for them to recover from stress. Type As benefit most from exercise that has a calming effect on the body.

Essentially, your blood type directly affects your exercise tolerance. When exercise makes you feel good, you want more of it. And isn’t more exercise what you resolved to do in the first place?

The Blood Type Diet offers a simple promise. If you eat (and exercise) according to the biochemical script that’s coded in your blood, you can lose weight and achieve a level of health and fitness you might never have imagined. There is so much more detail in Dr. Peter D'Adamo's Revised and Updated Eat Right 4 Your Type book that also includes a 10-day jump-start plan. Make this year the year you finally keep your health-related New Year’s resolutions.
