About seven years ago I went to my Naturopathic doctor for my annual check-up.For over two decades I've been fighting high cholesterol (dangerously high levels) and it took all I could to resist the medical establishment's insistence I get put on drugs, namely cholesterol lowering statins. You're at a severe risk of heart attack was the common refrain I heard every year I had my blood work.
She ordered blood work and when I went in for the follow-up appointment, she looked at my cholesterol numbers and said, "This is not good!....we need to do something, so you don't have to get on meds."
I was in otherwise pretty good shape with lots of bike riding and some strength training.
She basically told me about the Blood-type diet and put me on a strict vegetarian diet.
I'm like,...forget the meds, let's do this...whatever it takes.
Two months later I got new blood work done and went back.
She couldn't believe it...by going vegetarian, I dropped my total cholesterol by 100 points in two months.
In that two months time I did a fair amount of research and looked into the basis of the blood-type diet.
It does seem that people with Blood Type A, do very well on a vegetarian diet.
(I am a Type A)
It also seems that people with Blood type O, do better with a significant amount of clean animal meat and fat in their diet. They often do well with the Paleo diet.
Does anyone else have any experience with the Blood Type diet?

Or, are you a Type A or any other type that is thriving on a vegetarian/vegan diet?
In my opinion there are some tendencies with the blood type diet that seem pretty spot on and others...not so much.
