Eating for Your Blood Type - B+ & B-

by on

We now know that blood type O is the oldest blood type in the history of humanity. They were the meat eaters of the human race, and this trait has been handed down though the centuries to modern man.

Blood type A was the more herbivorous kind, as migration to Europe and Asia from Africa meant that Type A people slowly developed systems that were better at digesting carbs as against O type people, whose digestive systems handled meat better than fruits and vegetables.


The third blood group in the human race is blood type B. The movement from eastern Africa continued past Europe and Asia toward the Himalayas, which is a part of India, Nepal, Tibet, and Pakistan today. This was a move from hot to cold climates, and it is believed that blood type B may have been a mutation based on this climatic change. Blood type B also established its presence in the Ural region of Asia, where the populace was a mix of Mongolian and Caucasian tribes.

The Mongolians moved through Asia and dominated the Eurasian Plains, and soon blood type B was as good as set in this segment of people. The northward movement heralded more animal domestication, so the diet slowly turned more toward dairy and meat.

This blood type has the clearest geographical outline as compared to others. Japan, China, Mongolia and India have the maximum B type group people with the Koreans and Chinese of North heading the list. Further west, blood group B is seen in people, where there is evidence of Asian nomadic migration.

B type people are flexible. They can adapt to their environment quite easily. This is the outcome of the ancient tribes who were learning to balance both a vegetable and animal-centric diet.

Diet for the B type

Stressful situations result in higher levels of cortisol being released in the system. Excess cortisol makes people react to stress in a negative manner, which leads to further psychological imbalance.

There are some Lectins that are sensitive to B type blood. To ensure that neither of the two affect your overall health, it’s best to follow a diet that avoids food that has high levels of toxicity.

Type B people are also quite prone to infections of the sinus, urinary tract, E.Coli, and influenza. Most antigens have blood Type B-like characteristics, and since bacterial antigens don’t attack those that resemble their own, B group people are vulnerable to them.

Overall, people with blood type B type are known to be sturdy. They can usually resist most of the present day lifestyle diseases like cancer and heart troubles.  If they follow the required diet and ensure a balanced lifestyle, most people with blood type B can live long healthy lives.

B blood type people can break down fats easily. They have high levels of the bone strengthening enzyme called intestinal alkaline phosphotase. However, they have insulin issues too, so foods with high glucose content should be eaten only in moderation. A lot of B type people are of African American descent, which means they may or may not be lactose intolerant too. In such cases, care has to taken when consuming dairy products.

Grapefruit and guava are good sources of beneficial lycopenes, while dried apricots are an excellent snack.  Fish and seafood are good sources of protein, and kidney and navy beans are good because they do not have lectins like other beans and legumes.

Blood type B people can include variety of foods in their diets.  In fact, the diet for blood type B is considered the most balanced and wholesome diet as compared to other groups. Given below are foods that they should avoid and foods that are good for them:

Foods to avoid

  • Tomatoes, wheat, corn, lentils, buckwheat, peanuts, sesame seeds
  • Shellfish, chicken
  • Beans and legumes, grains and starches, avocados
  • Persimmons, Pomegranates, Star fruit, and Prickly pear
  • Cinnamon, Pepper, Sesame oil, Sunflower oil and Corn oil

Foods that work well for B type people

  • Green vegetables
  • Deep sea fish
  • Low fat dairy, and eggs
  • Rice milk, rice bran, rice flour, millet, oats
  • Onions, artichokes, parsnip
  • Olive oil, flaxseed oil
  • Grapes, figs, and dates can be eaten in moderation
  • Goat meat, lamb, turkey, venison

Corn, buckwheat, sesame seeds, peanuts and lentils are known to cause weight gain and affect the metabolic rate of people with blood type B. They may also result in problems like hypoglycemia, fatigue, and water retention. Your blood sugar level may also go down after you eat a meal comprising one or more of these foods.

Nuts and seeds like peanuts and sesame seeds have lectins that might interfere with inusiln production in blood type B.

Tomatoes are known to affect the stomach lining and therefore, should be eliminated from the diet.

Wheat also should be avoided because it contains lectins that bring down insulin efficiency and hamper the fat burning process of the body.

Although a lean meat, chicken contains a lectin in its muscle tissue that causes agglutination in blood type B. This agglutinating lectin can cause immunity-related problems and even strokes in people with blood type B.

Shesllfish also contains lectins that are disruptive for blood type and therefore, should be avoided.

On the good side, blood type B is most tolerant to and benefits from all types of dairy products. Deep ocean are good for them and green vegetables, deep sea fish, low fat dairy, and eggs promote weight loss. Also, replacing chicken with goat meat, lamb, turkey, and venison is more beneficial for blood type B.

The B blood type digestive system is tolerant, which means it can handle both animal and vegetable carbohydrates and proteins. Their immune system is strong is capable of resisting most chronic degenerative illnesses. The system works best when one does moderate exercises like swimming, tennis, hiking, and cycling. The blood type B people are lucky because they can eat a far more varied diet than their brethren in type A and type O.

      Hi Zulkifli,

      Many new studies are producing strong evidence that eating wrong or highly-modified foods can, and over time do, cause your body to react like a diabetic’s. Wheat is a major & highly-modified food; it was changed it to grow taller and produce higher yields, but this also changed the starch complex, to become one that the body has to struggle to break down. This causes so many problems, I can’t list them all. This genetic modification was done a long time ago, and no one until now, was willing to recognize that the modified wheat was creating increased health problems. Now, it has been recognized (but not welcomed), and it is feared that the original, ancient wheat can no longer be found.

      I suggest avoiding all products made with wheat flour. It is easy if you can bake at home: use spelt flour to replace the wheat. 1 part wheat flour = 1 part spelt flour (and it’s very close in price too)… it reacts the same way as flour, with a slightly nuttier taste. I know so many people who after making this 1 switch, felt a lot better after 1 week of completely eliminating wheat from their diet. Your daily energy level will increase, you will show reduced or completely eliminate your resemblance to a diabetic.

      There are lots of other things you can do as well, like making sure you eat antioxidant foods (acai berry has the highest levels, plus has other great health benefits), and wash your food with the fruit and veggie soap available at your nearest health food store – it takes off stuff that even 5min of washing doesn’t remove. Try to buy organic when possible (but still wash it with the soap). Drink water that has been distilled or gone through a reverse-osmosis treatment (Not “spring water,” it has dissolved things in it that are not good for you). Make sure you are not eating very many sweets or other things made with refined sugars either, carbohydrates like bread = sugar to your system. Sugar in your body turns into little razor-blades and actually cut up your blood vessels causing them to scar, and brings down your immune functions.

      The best plan is to think of yourself as a wanderer in a Garden. If you can pick it and eat it immediately, or if its meat, it’s great for your system. But if it would take a lot of work (harvesting, roasting, grinding, boiling, processing, etc) than eat it just as rarely as if you had to do all that work yourself each time.

      God Bless!
