The Blood Type Diet Checklist For A Healthier Heart

It's hard to work out exactly what we should do to keep our bodies in top shape. There are so many things that we're told to take care of - what should our priority be?

The number one killer of adults in the United States today is heart-related disease. This suggests that if we are going to focus on anything when it comes to our health, our hearts would be a good place to start.

Unfortunately, our hearts don't come with owner's manuals, and that means we need a little help making sure that they stay in good condition. 

The good news is that exercise and a healthy diet can help with this. We've got a bunch of diet tips that will ensure you get it right based on your blood type. Check them out.

Type As should avoid red meat and instead get their protein from soy-based foods and plant sources. You can, however, enjoy regular helpings of oily cold-water fish. Unlike type Os, you can add dairy to your diet, but try to limit fresh milk products because they cause mucus build up.

Try to keep away from red meat and meat in general. ABs find it difficult to properly digest meats. So it's best to stick to seafood and soy-based foods for your proteins. Get regular amounts of oily cold-water fish.
