The Blood Type Diet was created by Peter D’Adamo, who wrote the book Eat Right 4 Your Type. This diet is based on the belief that individuals who eat foods that do not combine with their blood type will experience a host of medical problems, including allergies, weight gain and infection. Each blood type receives a specific meal plan to follow for their type.
