I heard about this years ago and thought it sounded like complete rubbish, because it told me to go off dairy and meat and stick to vegies, no thanks! Many years later, my husband became vegetarian (almost 18 months ago), and just after I had a health check that said that despite my small size and active lifestyle, I still had high body fat % and my cholesterol was through the roof. After cutting down the meat and dairy (especially full fat dairy) - easy when you're cooking for a vegetarian, I lost 10% of my body weight without adding any other restrictions (never went hungry). My body handles digestion much better and cholesterol is also on the way down.

So, I'm not saying it's true, but it appears to have worked for me. The other possibility is that cutting sat fats could get this result regardless of blood type? I think people forget how much saturated fat is in meat. Even the lean pieces like ultra lean mince can have around 10% sat fat, which adds up pretty quickly given the serving sizes people use.

Any type of extreme change in diet will make some sort of difference whether it is a short term or long term difference is another matter. I don't think that blood type is a specific enough indicator to base a diet on because knowing your genetics, metabolism and lifestyle are a better way to figure out what works for you. I have not heard of anyone that doesn't benefit from less processed foods, smaller portions and fresher, healthier choices though.

Personally I cannot live without meat as I get ill and I have other food allergies that mean I cannot eat a lot of vegetarian foods. Hence my earlier comments about blood type not really being a good thing to base dietary decisions on.
