Are You Eating Right For Your Blood Type?

April 27, 2015 2 min read

Could eating a diet based on your blood type -- O, A, B, or AB -- help you lose weight and get healthier? That's the idea behind the Blood Type Diet, created by Canadian naturopath Peter J. D'Adamo. D'Adamo claims that the foods you eat react chemically with your blood type. If you follow a diet designed for your blood type, your body will digest food more efficiently. You'll lose weight, have more energy, and help prevent disease. There is lots of controversy around this theory but it does work for a lot of people, so could it work for you? What You Can Eat... Depends on your blood type. Here's what D'Adamo recommends for each type: Type O: A high-protein, low carb diet heavy on lean meat, poultry, fish, and vegetables, and foods to avoid include dairy products, beans, cereals, bread, pasta and rice. Oats, corn and wheat are particularly troublesome for O’s. This blood type can have lots of healthy fats like olive oil. Type A: A meat-free diet based on fruits and vegetables, beans and legumes, and whole grains -- ideally, organic and fresh, because D'Adamo says people with type A blood have a sensitive immune system. Of all the blood types A’s usually thrive on a vegetarian diet but should still avoid dairy. Type B: Only one person in 10 has blood type B – a real shame when you consider this blood group has the least dietary restrictions! Avoid corn, wheat, buckwheat, lentils, tomatoes, peanuts, and sesame seeds. Chicken can be a problem for B’s. He encourages eating green vegetables, eggs, certain meats, and low-fat dairy. Type AB: AB’s do best on a mixed diet with an emphasis on vegetables. AB’s should follow a veggie diet most of the time with some meat, fish and dairy products occasionally. D’Adamo says people with type AB blood tend to have low stomach acid and should avoid caffeine, alcohol, and smoked or cured meats. Have you tried to Eat Right for Your Blood Type? If so how did that work for you?

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 2-3 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.

Clothing

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
