Questions About The Diets

Type A and Hard Exercise


I have been following ER4YT for about six weeks now and am very pleased with the way I've been feeling. I have more energy , less tired muscles and as an added bonus I've lost 12 lbs. I am an A type and my question is: As a letter carrier I am required to walk about 8 miles a day carrying weights up to 40 lbs. I know that my preferred form of exercise should be yoga but I can't afford to quit my job. Is there anything I should be doing in the way of diet or supplements to lessen the effects of such strenuous exercise?


Over-exercised type A's tend to have higher levels of cortisol which can result in fatigue and muscle weakness. Try 250mg of vitamin C (any form is fine) daily. It may help balance this out.

The Ask Dr. D'Adamo internet advice column ran from 1996 to 2009, at which time Dr. D'Adamo's teaching and programming responsibilities no longer allowed him to devote time and resources to directly answering visitor questions. However we've recently reorganized this treasure-trove of material and made it again available to his readership. He occasionally posts new entries. These are marked with a NEW tag.
