  Eating for your “type”
  By Kelly Calabrese

   This column is based on one person’s opinion/experiences, and does not represent The New Falcon Herald.
In the last article, I talked about eating and exercising for your blood type. It’s important to remember why we should eat for our type. We want to reduce illness and disease, strengthen our immune system and keep our body weight lower than a BMI of 24. The Body Mass Index is a gauge that determines a healthy weight for all individuals. By following your blood type diet, you will achieve optimal health!
   Each blood type has individual requirements on how much to eat and what percentage of protein, carbohydrates and fats should be consumed. For instance, the “O” blood type should consume 50 percent carbohydrates in the form of fruits and vegetables, 25 percent protein from animal products and 25 percent fat from animal products, nuts and oils. Most “O” blood types that have cardiovascular disease, high cholesterol and diabetes should follow a low carbohydrate diet. Usually, wheat bread, pasta, potatoes and corn increase the insulin levels resulting in fat stores in the tissues, and elevate fat levels in the blood promoting high cholesterol.
   The “A” blood type should consume 60 percent carbohydrates in the form of fruits and vegetables, including corn, tofu and beans, 25 percent protein from vegetables and some animal products, including seafood, and 15 percent fat from nuts and oils. The “A” blood type as well as the “O” blood type should limit wheat products and only use olive oil and flaxseed oil in their diets.
   The “B” blood type is the most versatile. The “B” blood type has a tendency of having hypoglycemia — a severe drop in blood sugar after eating a meal. Like the “O” blood type, the “B” blood type has a reaction to the “gluten” in wheat, causing a slow down in the metabolism and undigested food being stored as fat. The “B” blood type should consume 55 percent carbohydrates in the form of fruits and vegetables, 25 percent protein and 20 percent fat from animal products. The “B” blood type should avoid chicken, corn and peanuts. These foods promote weight gain.
   The “AB” blood type should consume 55 percent carbohydrates in the form of fruits and vegetables, 25 percent protein from tofu, seafood and dairy, and 20 percent fat from eggs, nuts and oils. All blood types are required to consume eggs. Eggs do not cause high cholesterol; starchy carbohydrates are the culprits!
   It is also important to understand food combining. When eating animal protein such as red meat, chicken or fish, avoid eating starchy carbohydrates and eat salads and vegetables instead. When eating vegetable proteins such as tofu, legumes and beans, avoid eating high fat foods and eat lighter starches such as rice.
   Once you are committed to the diet, which could take anywhere from three to six months, you should see results quickly. You will no longer have vicious food cravings, mood swings, or extreme fluctuation in weight. After one year of being “cleaned out,” you will notice clearer skin, an increase in energy, no illness and a maintenance in weight loss.

  Recipe of the month

   It’s the season for grilling! Here is a protein-packed dinner recipe that has amazing flavor! Salmon is full of healthy omega-3 fatty acids and B vitamins; increase the nutrition content of the meal even more by serving it with a salad of vibrant greens and some avocado.
   Courtesy of
   What you need (Serves 2)
   1 fillet of fresh salmon
   1 cup Lite Soy Sauce or coconut aminos
   2 tablespoons fresh minced ginger
   2 tablespoons honey
   Combine the soy sauce, ginger and honey nectar. Place the salmon in a pan and cover with the marinade for 1 hour in the fridge.
   Prepare your grill. If desired, soak a cedar plank that you can barbecue the salmon on.
   Grill over medium heat until cooked through and it’s flaky. Serve immediately!
   One serving equals 300 calories, 12g fat, 8g carbohydrate, .5g fiber and 40g protein.
