One of the most popular and debated diet plans out there is the low carb diet. You have those people who love and swear by it and others that can’t believe it’s not a heart attack waiting to happen. Unbelievable, but even the doctors aren’t in agreement. Some will recommend it while others totally advise against it.

Anyone who is thinking of a low carb diet has more than likely heard of Dr. Atkins. He is like the godfather of low carb diets. This type of plan takes you through phases where you start from very little or no carbohydrates and then increase thru each phase.

The first phase limits you to virtually no carbs but you’re allowed to eat all the meat you want. However, you can’t eat any bread, pasta, potatoes, sweets, or anything else containing carbs.

If you love your potatoes, bread and pasta like me, but can manage to refrain from them during this phase, you can expect to lose somewhere around 15 lbs (much of this will be water retention, but it still is weight).

This phase puts your body into a state of ketosis. This is where ketones are being expelled in the urine, which shows that your body’s fat is now being used as its source of energy. You can actually check this with little test strips you can get at drugstores.

Each subsequent phase allows the addition of carbs includes some fruits and vegetables until you equal out. You are no longer losing and aren’t gaining.

I can tell you from personal experience that this diet is effective. My husband has lost many, many pounds on this program and still uses it for maintenance. He is eating steak, eggs, cheese, burgers (no bun or fries with that) and a large salad with his meals. He feels better and has more energy.

So, if you really want to lose weight in a hurry and you have great self-control, then this may be for you. However, if you like a wider variety of foods or you’re just not into all that meat, there are different versions of this basic concept. All it takes is an internet search for “Low Carb Diet.”

If you are really a meat lover and can live without bread, pasta, and sweets then this might be for you. If you eat like the plan states, you can pretty much guarantee you’ll lose weight. If you plan on staying on this diet for a long time, then I’d suggest seeing a doctor just to make sure everything’s going to plan.

    1. Depends on who did the studies. I listen to my body and it tells me what I need to know. Following the blood type diet for me and others I know of, has been life changing. I know within 30 minutes or less how a food is reacting.

  1. Blood type diet ??? I’m on the foot type diet . 😭😭😭 what a joke . There’s no study in the history of the world that supports the blood type diet. It’s all based off a bs book with no evidence . Foh

    1. It actually DOES make sense if you have minimal biology knowledge and know what it stands for. A-bloodtype means the blood-cell has A- antigen, B has B-antigen, AB has both antigens, and 0 means it hasn’t got any (zero). So it is indeed zero, not O.

    2. I did a bit research, and maybe its an english-speech-area thing? We here in Hungary call (and learn) it null, and as far is know most European country do so, but for example in the UK they call itt O too. Its interesting tho, every day you learn something new 🙂

    3. Sub Marine The English speakers call it blood tyoe O because the number 0 is comonly pronounced as ‘O’ in the English language. For example phone numbers , they mostly say ‘o – nine- two’ etc. .. rather than ‘zero-nine-two’… But it is indeed a zero tye, according to the antigens in the blood, on which studies of this diet are basesd.

  2. I’m type B… I am supposed to eat chicken… mainly salmon and definitely no beef and corn and wheat…

    now I lost a lot of weight mainly eating salmon and sweet potato and Asparagus.
    I did notice when I ate corn, my body would bloat up. same with wheat products. I bloat. beef just made me constipated. dairy isn’t good for me either, it actually hurts my stomach.

    but chicken, as long as it is organic and natural I digest it well.

    so overall listen to your body and eat clean.

    1. Type B is supposed to avoid chicken. It agglutinates the blood. You can replace it with turkey instead.

  3. I’m type A and before I even knew about this I wasn’t eating a lot of meat because it makes me bloat or not lose weight I was juicing and stuff and getting into the vegan lifestyle before I even knew about it. For me it’s true. I’m allergic to some fish and wheat and chicken feathers maybe even chicken in general I’m in the process of checking.

  4. Thanks this is helpful. I’ve ordered a blood type test kit and am going to give this theory a go. Trying to heal migraine, chronic fatigue. Amazing gains btw 😉

  5. Thanks for this video. In the book “Eat Right 4 Your Type” by Dr. Peter D’Adamo, he has explicitly advised people to avoid conventional meat and go for grass-fed red meat, free-range poultry and eggs instead. He also suggested going for organic produce. These are the basic premises that are factored into the Blood Type Diet. Regarding the studies, one cannot only look at BMI as a guidepost for health. There are many markers that need to be looked at. Across the board, the BTD has been found to lower systemic inflammation and the chronic diseases that it leads to.
