If you are type B, your blood has characteristics, from a certain point of view, almost unique. Blood type B is the result of a refinement that has taken place along the path of evolution; the evidence of the rapprochement of peoples and cultures.
By following the advice of the blood type diet, type B people often manage not to fall victim to serious ailments and to live a long and healthy life. The dietary regimen of type B is balanced as it includes the best of the animal and vegetable worlds.
Which meat to choose for type B?
Blood type B people can get numerous benefits from certain types of meat; it would be better to choose grass-fed meat. If you feel tired or your immune system is not working properly, consume red meat, such as lamb, mutton or rabbit, limiting the consumption of beef or turkey.
Chicken contains agglutinating lectins that are harmful to your blood type. If you don’t want to do without this type of meat, replace it with others, for example, turkey or pheasant. Although very similar to chicken, the latter don’t contain lectins incompatible with your blood type.
It’s frustrating to realize that all the efforts to abandon red meat in favor of the chicken, considered healthier, have been in vain. In building your diet, what matters is not the fat content, but the toxic lectins for a specific blood type which, in the long run, can favor the appearance of circulatory and immune disorders.
Suggested/green light: lamb, kid, roe deer, deer, rabbit, fallow deer, mutton.
Neutral: beef or horse bresaola (without lactose or other additives), horse, pheasant, liver (not pork or chicken), beef, turkey, ostrich, veal.
Not recommended/red light: duck, wild boar, pork (meat and salami of all kinds, especially if smoked), goose, partridge, capon, chicken, rooster, hen, quail, any type of smoked meat.
Which fish is the best for type B?
Fish is an excellent food for people of type B, especially the one that lives in the cold and deep waters of the oceans, such as cod and salmon, rich in particularly beneficial oils.
The plaice, halibut and sole guarantee a good supply of proteins with high nutritional value.
Crab, lobster, shrimp, mussels, and seafood in general, however, are certainly not recommended because they contain some types of harmful lectins. At this link, you can get more precise information on the choice of fish.
Suggested/green light: caviar, grouper, halibut, pike, cod, hake, salmon (not smoked), sardine, mackerel, sole, sturgeon.
Neutral: herring (fresh and pickled), squid, carp, scallops, whitefish, bream, dogfish, golden perch, catfish, swordfish, cuttlefish, tuna, red mullet, rainbow trout, and salmon.
Not recommended/red light: anchovy, eel, lobster, mussels, prawns, crab, land snails (helix pomatia), oysters, perch, octopus, frogs, amberjack, smoked salmon, sea bass, clams.
Better to prefer natural fish, not canned. Avoid fried, breaded or smoked fish. Crustaceans, mollusks, and snails can cause serious ailments.
Eggs are also good, as they don’t contain the lectin that we find in chicken muscle tissues.
Type B is the only blood group that can tolerate a wide variety of dairy products well. The reason is simple: type B antigen is made up of galactose, the same sugar present in milk. This means that many of these foods, especially fermented forms, can act in a beneficial way for the digestive tract of subjects with blood type B because they stimulate the growth of good bacteria.
But what if you are type B and lactose intolerant? If it is just a matter of simple intolerance, it can help the consume dairy products in small quantities, which will gradually increase without exaggerating. In this way, the digestive system will have time to get used to a new type of diet. Start with yogurt and kefir, better tolerated than milk or fresh cheese.
Milk and its derivatives have been the focus of a great scientific debate in recent years. Although these foods are to some extent tolerated by blood type B, many doubts remain about the need to include them in a healthy diet, considering the negative effects such as growth factors and the pathologies associated with them. There are many other beneficial foods for this blood type (equally useful for the balance of the microbiota) and if we have to make an exception for once, a good ice cream is allowed, better if artisanal.
