A 35-year-old weight lifter, Frank Bouc, saw that his health was falling apart after a lumbar surgery. His wife stumbled upon the Blood Type Diet and decided to cook for his and her blood types (A and O, respectively). Instead of steaks, he started to eat lots of vegetables. The result: The Blood Type Diet has transformed his life 180 degrees. The process was not easy, with lots of sacrifices, but to Frank, it was worth all the troubles. Here are some excerpts of his testimony after one year on the diet:
Excerpt: “A year later, I am down 65 pounds, I have a 6-pack and now wear a size 32. I don’t starve myself; I still enjoy a late night snack of yogurt, raisins and raw oats, and it’s pretty delicious. Every now and then, I splurge on sherbet for my sweet tooth to settle down. For once, I feel in control of my life and my destiny.”
“I have now learned that dieting works, but the type of diet selected is essential. Are we eating food that fuels us or kills us? Not all diets are created equal. Oats and yogurt are horrible for my wife, who is an O blood type, so she stays away from them. Her recommendations call for lean meats, sweet potatoes and green veggies, instead. Diet and rest are 90 percent of the battle, exercise is the remaining 10 percent. Take the time to study what works for you, and, honestly, Just get it done. This is my review on the Blood Type Diet. Below are before and after pictures of me, and I feel pretty great.”
