The LLVLC Show (Episode 420): ‘The Blood Type Diet’ Founder Dr. James D’Adamo

$9.99 COUPON CODE: 8U751106

In Episode 420 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we hear from naturopathic physician and creator of The Blood Type Diet, Dr. James D’Adamo. His latest book is called Just An Ounce of Prevention Is Worth a Pound of Cure: A Modern Guide to Healthful Living from the Originator of the Blood-Type Diet that takes a look at how the principles of your blood type dictate your healthy lifestyle. There are skeptics to the notion that there is any relationship between your blood type and the kind of diet that is best for the individual. Listen to Dr. D’Adamo and decide for yourself!

IMPORTANT NOTE: I apologize for the horrendous audio during this interview. We were using a new top-of-the-line microphone called Blue Snowball the week this interview was recorded several months back and it did not have a cough button. Thus, you’ll hear me clearing my throat often and also experience a funky echoing sound to my voice asking questions. We have fixed this issue with a brand new microphone for the new interviews beginning again in December. Ideally, I’d love for every interview to be pristine, but the reality is there will be issues from time to time. THANK YOU for your patience with these audio difficulties.

Listen to Dr. D’Adamo talk about why he tried to make everyone a vegetarian when he came out of medical school, what led him to look at blood types to help individualize diets, whether there is any real “hard evidence” science supporting the blood type diet, why he is attempting to treat the cause of the symptoms rather than the symptoms itself, why this is not a diet but rather a lifestyle change, why supplementation should be individualized for their specific blood type, whether he’d be interested in the NIH funding a study of blood type diets, why food addiction fights the body when we attempt to change, why most people are walking around with hypoglycemia, what universal foods that are not healthy for all blood types, why O’s need protein and high-aerobic exercise since they are athletic, why A’s need to avoid dairy and whole wheat and to do yoga because their the creative types, why B’s make the best business people in the world, why AB’s have qualities of both A’s and B’s, the role of H1 and A1 in the blood types, whether he’s done a study looking at famous athletes and businessmen to see if their blood type matches his theory, and how he determines how strong a sublet blood type is.
