'Live Right For Your Type' versus 'Eat Right For Your Type'
Hi, Dr. D'Adamo! What does this book cover that your other books don't?
The first book Eat Right 4 Your Type was almost exclusively devoted to diet. In Live Right 4 Your Type, I was able to take advantage of the now more available electronic retrieval forms of research (i.e. Medline), so I was able to take a more broad view of blood type, to stand back and look at it from a genetic perspective. Whereas in Eat Right we were given guidelines of how to eat based on precepts of blood type, Live Right provides guidelines on how to live a healthier, more intelligent existence by factoring in the strengths and weaknesses involved in blood types. So Live Right dovetails nicely because it looks at the other factors that contribute to one's health, i.e. chronic disease, metabolic dysfunctions, and reactions to stress. It also spends a little time looking at a special subtype called "secretor status," which helps us to refine the system a bit further.
