Genotype diet, what does it consist of?

Many talk about the diet of the genotype but not everyone is clear on what it is. This diet has been designed by Dr. Peter D'Adamo (United States) in 2007. Peter D'Adamo specializes in natural medicine, data for nothing less as we will see later. The basic concept is that traditional diets have the problem that they work with some people if and others do not, but above all, that they have a limited effect over time; fact that is so relevant that motivates the creation of the genotype diet. This variation in effectiveness and limited duration, are due, according to the author, to different people have a different genotype that conditions different responses.
When it says genotype it refers to the genes that each person has. Designing a diet for each person individually would be an extremely long and complex process. However, Peter D'Adamo in this genotype diet, grouped 6 different genotypes, which have a homogeneous response within that particular group.

  • Lemon diet
Why were these genotype groups created, with what objective? The main idea is to enhance the positive genes and silence the negative ones, to put it in a clear way, through an optimal diet. Therefore the diet of the genotype will not only lead us to the correct weight, but it will keep us in the same, but in a very healthy way. Of course, this diet is not only limited to having a correct weight, but the goal is much more important. Eating in this way distances us from possible genetic weaknesses (natural tendencies of our genes for a given disease) and clearly enhances positive ones.
For Dr. Peter D'Adamo, 70% of the diseases of human beings derive from a diet. However, it is not about demonizing this or that food, it is simply bad for that person because of its genotype but it is very good for that other one also because of its genotype (clearly different from each other).

Groups in the genotype diet

Based on the blood group as very relevant (but not unique) data, to certain body proportions and to saliva (which determines the state of secretion), the six different groups are determined for the genotype diet. However, before doing these studies, it is possible to suspect in some way, which is the group of each one. There are certain foods that swell or make you sleepy, etc. There are also others that make you feel very good, of course. Let's see now what are the groups.
1. CollectorIn this group, people have blood group 0 or B. This group is the most frequent. These genes make the person tend to save every calorie that enters. In primitive times, where food was scarce and famines frequent, these individuals were the most apt to survive, because if there were no food, I already had reserves to tolerate that shortage better. As soon as it could be fed again, each calorie was stored. However, everything that was good in a primitive world is bad in today's world. They gain weight very easily and they have a hard time losing it. If a low-calorie diet is indicated, they tend to have a very dramatic recovery of later weight, achieving a much greater weight than before starting the diet. This group remains in weight and healthy with animal and vegetable proteins in abundance, some fruits in particular (plums, blackberries, watermelons) and drinking black or chamomile tea, watermelon juice and cranberries. They should always avoid the consumption of bread, pasta, rice, sweets, all refined grains and in particular beer.
2. Warrior The blood type is usually A or AB. He has no problems maintaining weight in youth, but later it is a problem. If they maintain a life with a lot of exercise, as they naturally do, weight will not be such a serious problem, and they tolerate (apparently) almost all foods. They are very intense people but with a tendency to have cardiovascular, skin and diabetes problems. They should follow in particular a Mediterranean diet, with a lot of fish, vegetables and whole grains. In particular they should avoid refined grains and all saturated fats (especially butter, whole milk, fatty meats, etc.) 
3. Hunter.The hunters have blood group 0. They are tall and thin, with good defenses and very active. As a negative they tend to be allergic (which is an exaggerated immune system) and many of these individuals have gluten intolerance. A diet with many animal proteins (meats, eggs, etc.); vegetables such as broccoli, squash, chard, lettuce, onion and asparagus; and fruits such as blueberries and raspberries are highly recommended. They should always avoid the consumption of milk, flour, potatoes and beer. 
4. Nomad.They are blood group B and AB. They look a lot like hunters. They are usually allergic and have heartburn problems. Many are celiac and may have frequent headaches. A diet with abundant animal proteins, fruits such as cherries, raspberries and figs is very good for them. They should avoid all flours, rye, oats, black tea and tomato. 
5. Teacher.They have blood B and AB. They are strong and vigorous. However, they tend to develop lung problems (without symptoms for years) and digestive problems. The most frequent infections are herpes, urinary infections and upper respiratory tract. The ideal diet is almost vegetarian, the best animal meats without white (fish, turkey), eggs, cheese, yogurt, vegetables and fruits. They should avoid whole milk, lettuce, corn, aubergine, refined carbohydrates and simple sugars. 
6. Explorer.Your blood group is usually 0 or A, with Rh negative factor. They are muscular, with small hips in relation to the shoulders and naturally thin. Notoriously alcohol and caffeine do not do them well. They tend to be long-lived if fed correctly. Autoimmune diseases such as lupus or type I diabetes are frequent in this group. In general they have a long list of foods they do not like. It is recommended that they eat white meats, vegetables, some fruits, rice and vegetables. Coffee, alcohol, wheat flour, milk and especially seeds are not recommended at all.

How to make a diet of rice

The diet of rice consists of a very strict regime for 2 or 4 weeks or more, this in order to lose several kilos in a short period . In this plan is mainly restricted salt, fat, sugar, processed foods. You can lose 10 to 15 kilos in 30 days. The Dr. Walter Kempner introduced the Rice Diet in 1939 at Duke University in the United States as a method against hypertension , heart disease, kidney etc. Duke University canceled the rice diet program a few years ago after 70 years of existence, it was very expensive, it cost $ 5,000 a month, they had almost no customers because of the high costs. The rice diet was a complete program within the Duke University to improve health included an exercise routine, classes, workshops to manage anxiety, etc.
Dr. Kempner planned the diet for a daily intake of 2000 calories, including fruit, low salt, low fat, protein , steamed rice, and restricting vegetables, supplementing it with vitamin supplements. Now, designed as a diet to lose weight , it has been mo…
