[English version below the Chinese text]

你會否經常覺得疲倦?每種血型的人,如果能夠多吃屬於自己的“超級食物”,就能夠越來越精神!到底這些食物是那些?又有哪些是要戒除的?

以下與大家分享一下每種血型該多吃與該戒除的食物和飲料:

Fatigue-fighting food for Type A - www.eatrighthk.org    Fatigue-fighting food for Type B - www.eatrighthk.org

Fatigue-fighting food for Type O - www.eatrighthk.org    Fatigue-fighting food for Type AB - www.eatrighthk.org

A型:
• 避免吃動物性的蛋白質。
• 主要的蛋白質來源應該是素食,偶爾吃海產。
• 海產方面主要來源應該是含豐富油脂的冷水魚。
• 乳製產品方面,可以吃少量的發酵乳製產品,例如乳酪,但要避免鮮奶和牛奶製品。
• 不要吃太多穀類產品,尤其是用小麥做的食物。
• 吃大量對你有益的蔬菜水果,尤其是含豐富抗氧化劑和纖維的品種。
• 每天喝綠茶,有助增加抵抗力。

B型:
• 每星期吃幾次少至中分量的草飼瘦紅肉(尤其是羊肉和羊仔肉),以增加體力和消化力。
• 避免吃雞肉。
• 定時吃含豐富油脂的冷水魚。
• 定時吃發酵乳製產品,例如乳酪、克菲爾 (酸奶),這些對你的腸胃非常有益。
• 戒除所有用小麥和粟米製造的食物。
• 吃大量對你有益的蔬菜水果。
• 如果你每天都有喝咖啡的習慣,請你用綠茶來代替。
• 除了雞肉和粟米之外,還要避免以下食物:蕎麥、花生、大豆、扁豆、薯仔和番茄。

O型:
• 每星期吃幾次少至中分量的草飼瘦紅肉,以增加體力。吃含豐富油脂的冷水魚。
• 盡量不吃乳製產品。
• 把所有用小麥做的產品戒除。
• 只吃對你血型有益的豆類。
• 吃大量對你有益的蔬菜水果。
• 避免有咖啡因的飲料,例如咖啡和可樂。
• 每天喝綠茶。

AB型:
• 蛋白質的來源主要來自大豆和大豆製品以及海產,不能來自紅肉。
• 避免吃雞肉。
• 乳製產品方面,可以吃少量的發酵乳製產品,例如乳酪,但要避免鮮奶和牛奶製品。
• 不要吃太多的穀類食品,尤其用小麥作的。
• 要完全避免粟粉(包括用粟粉做的醬汁)。
• 吃大量對你有益的蔬菜水果,尤其是含豐富抗氧化劑和纖維的品種。
• 避免喝咖啡,但每天可以喝兩至三杯綠茶。

另外,雖然你可能已聽過很多次,但還是要提醒一下,少吃含有糖份的食物,因爲吃了之後,雖然頓時會感到精神為之一震,但很快的就會產生倦意,這就是所謂的“Sugar Crash”,主要因為血糖飆升造成胰島素大量分泌,但是過了一段時間血糖又快速下降,令人有疲倦的感覺。其實吃精製的碳水化合物也有同一作用,例如下午茶吃個飽,肯定過後會有睡意,不如小睡十五分鐘(”Power nap”),更爲有效。當然,要驅除疲勞,足夠的睡眠和適量的運動都不可缺少,大家請多注意了!

Do you often feel tired? Besides getting enough rest and sleep, did you know that by eating what are considered “super foods” for your blood type would boost your energy and help you combat fatigue in a healthy way? Scroll down to download your food list consisting of such super foods.

Naturally, there are also foods that you should avoid to feel more energetic. Below are the do’s and don’ts when it comes to what to eat and what not to eat, according to each blood type:

Type A
• Avoid or limit animal proteins.
• Derive your primary protein from plant foods with seafood used occasionally.
• Seafood should be primarily richly oiled cold-water fish.
• Include modest amounts of cultured dairy foods in your diet, but avoid fresh milk products.
• Don’t overdo the grains, especially wheat-derived foods.
• Eat lots of BENEFICIAL fruits and vegetables, especially those high in antioxidants and fiber.
• Drink green tea every day for extra immune system benefits.

Type B
• Eat small-to-moderate portions of high-quality, lean, organic meat (especially goat, lamb, and mutton) several times a week for strength, energy, and digestive health.
• Avoid Chicken.
• Include regular portions of richly oiled cold-water fish.
• Regularly eat cultured dairy foods, such as yogurt and kefir, which are beneficial for digestive health.
• Eliminate wheat and corn from your diet.
• Eat lots of BENEFICIAL fruits and vegetables.
• If you need a daily dose of caffeine, replace coffee with green tea.
• Avoid foods that are Type B red flags, especially chicken, corn, buckwheat, peanuts, soy beans, lentils, potatoes, and tomatoes.

Type O
• Eat small to moderate portions of high-quality, lean, organic, grass-fed meat several times a week for strength.
• Include regular portions of richly oiled cold-water fish.
• Consume little or no dairy foods.
• Eliminate wheat and wheat-based products from your diet.
• Limit your intake of beans principally to those that are BENEFICIAL.
• Eat lots of BENEFICIAL fruits and vegetables.
• Avoid stimulants found in caffeine (coffee, colas, etc.).
• Avoid coffee, but drink green tea every day.

Type AB
• Eat soy foods and seafood as your primary protein instead of red meat.
• Eliminate chicken from your diet.
• Include modest amounts of cultured dairy foods in your diet, but limit fresh milk products.
• Don’t overdo the grains, especially wheat-derived foods. Avoid corn flour altogether.
• Eat lots of BENEFICIAL fruits and vegetables, especially those high in antioxidants and fiber. Avoid coffee, but drink two to three cups of green tea every day.

Among all the “avoids,” perhaps the No. 1 avoid is sugar and processed food that contains a lot of hidden sugar. You might feel energized temporarily after eating a sweet treat, but very quickly you would start to experience a “sugar crash.” That’s because your pancreas has produced a lot of insulin to break down that sugar for storage, but after a short while, when the blood sugar level is lowered, you will have the feeling of fatigue again, perhaps even more than before. Eating simple carb foods, such as a bun or pastry in mid-afternoon, could also make you sleepy. If your circumstances allow, why not replace it with a 15-minute power nap instead? Of course, not having sufficient sleep and adequate exercises would contribute to fatigue as well. If you want to feel more energetic, give these a higher priority in your life.

你的新年大計已經泡湯了嗎?Making Your New Year Resolutions Work

不知不覺,2016已經過了兩個禮拜!新一年開始之際,相信大家都立了一些新年大計吧?大部份人在節日過後,都會立志吃少一點,多做些運動,希望能夠減磅或健康一些。但有一項研究顯示,百份之九十二的新年大計都泡湯!為甚麽呢?因爲大部份定立大計的人都野心太大,而且目標本身太過籠統,沒有系統性的計劃來支持,那當然容易失敗了。以下有幾個建議,可以幫助你把新年計劃有效地付諸實行:

  • 設立自己能力範圍内、較容易達到的目標。
  • 定立一個明確的期限,以達到目標,例如:在12周内減掉6磅,或者在4周内減2磅。
  • 邀請一位朋友或者三五知己一起接受一個健康挑戰(如:4周挑戰或12周挑戰),然後把自己的進度在社交網站上與他們分享(可以用井號打個標簽:#4周挑戰、#12周挑戰)。如果你想趁新年開始嘗試《血型飲食法》,不妨用一個月時間來挑戰自己,把應該避免的主要食物戒掉,然後一個月後看看身體情況如何。你亦可以在Facebook或 Instagram上的貼子加上#eatrighthk 這個標簽,讓我也能參與你的挑戰。
  • 要事半功倍,就要適得其法,我曾經在一個講座裏提過,“卡路里入、卡路里出”這個概念,其實是行不通的,因爲不同血­型的人,在消化和生陳代謝方面都不一樣。要能有效和輕鬆地減磅,最好的方法是先找出你屬於哪個血型,然後戒掉不適合你血型的食物,同時可以盡情進食對你有益的食物(你不會因此而增磅的),那你根本就不會感到好像甚麽都不能吃了!

如果你沒有看過《食得型》的減磅vs增磅食物名單,請看看這篇關於血型飲食法的簡介吧!試下每一個星期把圖片裏右手邊的其中一樣食物剔除,同時改吃左手邊一樣有益食物。如果一星期太短,你也可以自己調節,把一星期變成兩星期或者一個月都行,總之按照你自己能力範圍來設定目標就好。

祝你有一個充實、健康和快樂的2016年!

Two weeks have already gone by since we entered 2016. A new year, a fresh start! I bet some of you have made New Year resolutions to turn over a new leaf. But did you know that 92% of all New Year resolutions fail? With the most common goals being “lose weight” and “stay fit and healthy,” New Year resolutions are prone to fail because the goals are too lofty or vague, and there are no concrete plans attached to them. Here are some ways to increase the chances of success: Make small, manageable goals, such as lose 2 lbs per month.

  • Set up a specific time frame to achieve each goal, e.g. lose 6 lbs in 12 weeks or lose 2 lbs in 4 weeks.
  • Get a buddy or a group of friends to join a “challenge” game and share your progress on social media, e.g. 4-Week Challenge or 12-Week Challenge (use hashtag #4weekchallenge or #12weekchallenge). If you are interested in trying the Blood Type Diet, I challenge you to stay compliant for one month and record any differences in how you feel. Use hastag #eatrighthk on Facebook or Instagram so I can follow your progress.
  • Find the most efficient method for achieving your goal. When it comes to losing weight, I can’t stress enough a truth that I have mentioned in a previous workshop: “Calorie in, calorie out” doesn’t work! This is because people of different blood types metabolize different foods at different rates. To be efficient, you need to find out what your blood type is, stay away from the foods that your type should avoid, and you’ll find losing weight a cinch. The best thing is that you won’t even feel deprived, as you can simply replace the bad foods with beneficial ones.

If you haven’t seen the “Eat Right” food lists before, have a look at them below. Each week, try to eliminate one item from the right-hand column and add one from the left-hand column.
If you need more time to move away from food that you are attached to, go ahead and prolong the week to two or even a month. Make sure you eat lots and lots of beneficial food, as it won’t make you gain weight!

Try the list for a month, and see if it makes any difference in your weight or in your overall health.

Wish you a happy, healthy and fulfilling New Year!

如何選擇高質素鈣片

Dr D'Adamo's Multi-mineral Formula - Phytocal http://bit.ly/1VMpBqb

大家都知道鈣質對骨骼健康的重要性,很多到了中年的人士都會購買一些鈣片來補充隨年齡增長而流失的鈣質。但近年來有不少科學報告指出,鈣片對健康存有副作用,例如會增加患心臟病的機會(尤其是女性),其原因是,坊間的鈣片大多屬於碳酸鈣(主要成份是石灰石) 或檸檬酸鹽(一般是從糖、粟米或澱粉發酵而成),這些物質除了沉澱物非常多,身體吸收率很低之外,還會“弄巧反拙”,使軟組織和器官產生鈣化、發炎。相反,質素較高的鈣片則是由植物直接提煉的,它可以很順暢地被人體吸收,不會在體内產生多餘或有害的物質。

戴醫生個人化多種礦物質配方Phytocal,就是利用全天然的植物素材研製而成。它的獨特之處,在於當中含有的鈣質是來自藻團粒(maerl)。藻團粒是一種非常微小的紅色海草,來源地是愛爾蘭西北部一個環境極爲清潔的海岸。在所有天然鈣質的來源中,藻團粒所含有污染物(包括鉛)的成份是最低的。

藻團粒本身含有不同礦物質,包括鈣、鎂、硼和鋅,有極高的身體利用率,並且非常容易被所有血型的人所吸收。與市面上衆多鈣片不同之處,在於它能夠完全在液體裏分解,如果把它放在水裏,可以完全看不見沉澱物。

戴醫生運用藻團粒再加上其他不同的礦物質,研製出適合不同血型人士的四種礦物質配方,詳情如下:

A 型獨特配方:

Phytocal A含有硒(一種重要的抗氧化物),另外還有對腸胃非常有益的甜菜堿鹽酸化物、凝乳酶及龍膽根,以及充滿礦物質的馬尾草。加上相當份量的天然骨黃酮,有促進鈣質吸收的作用。最後配以維他命A,令胃裏的碱性磷酸酶運作得更好,而碱性磷酸酶在吸收鈣質方面也扮演著重要的角飾。

B 型獨特配方:

Phytocal B含有份量平衡的硒、維他命D、K 和鋅,亦含有對骨骼和肌肉都有強化作用的骨黃酮,另外還有對B型有益的釩(一種微量元素)。

O 型獨特配方:

Phytocal O 含有份量平衡的鎂、鐵、銅和鋅,亦含有促進筋骨健康的錳,以及促進甲狀腺健康的碘。另外,配方還含有大蕁麻葉,有助礦物質在小腸裏的吸收。

AB 型獨特配方:

Phytocal AB 含有較高份量對AB型有益的鎂、錳和鉬質,以及幫助增強消化能力的甜菜堿鹽酸化物和凝乳酶。另外,配方還含有皺葉酸模,是一種容易吸收的天然鐵質來源。

戒除B型兩大避忌,成功根治皮膚過敏症 Testimonial from Type B: Eliminating Tomatoes and Corns Cures Skin Allergy

Tomatoes and Corns should be avoided by Type B individuals

“我由細到大都有皮膚敏感,以前睇過好多醫生,都只係得到暫時嘅舒緩,我以爲係因爲護膚品嘅問題。幾年前去咗俄羅斯旅行,其間每日都食番茄同粟米,因爲當地根本無乜其他蔬菜可以食!番來香港之後,我患咗好嚴重嘅皮膚敏感症,連成個嘴都腫哂,醫生話可能係營養唔均勻。幾個月後,我又突然扁桃腺發炎,厲害到要入急救室做手術,當時醫生都講唔出實際誘因。做完手術後,咁啱聽Louisa提起血型飲食法,佢話B型人要避免番茄同粟米,咁我就開始戒咗呢兩樣素菜,自此之後,皮膚敏感就無再次發作啦!其實我都係屬於比較懶嘅人,都無跟足血型飲食法去食嫁,不過就咁戒咗兩樣對我最有害嘅食物,就大大改善咗我嘅健康,真係值得一試!我宜家一D都唔掛住番茄同粟米了!”

“Ever since I was little, I had been having skin allergy. I have seen a lot of doctors but the best I could get was temporary relief. I thought it had to do with the type of skincare products I used. A few years ago, I visited Russia. During the trip, I ate a lot of tomatoes and corn. There weren’t many other vegetables available and I was shocked that these were what people ate day in and day out! When I came back, I got a serious case of skin allergy. My entire mouth was swollen. The doctor said it may have to do with nutritional imbalance, but he couldn’t offer a solution. A few months later, I even had a severe case of tonsillitis and was admitted to the hospital’s emergency room. The doctor could not pinpoint what the cause was.

After the surgery, I heard about the Blood Type Diet from Louisa. She told me that as a Type B individual, I should avoid tomatoes and corns, among others. So I started to eliminate the two from my diet entirely. Since then, I have never had a single case of skin allergy. I am quite a lazy person, so I don’t follow the Blood Type Diet closely. But simply cutting the worst “avoids”—tomatoes and corns—has improved my health. I don’t miss my tomatoes and corns anymore and I can say that it is definitely worth a try.”

血型與一些常見疾病的關係

Doctor-and-Child-Patient

每一種血型的人患不同疾病的機會率都不一樣,科學研究發現:

AB型比較其他血型的人較容易患腦部認知性和記憶性的疾病,例如老年痴呆症。

AB與A型的人,由於消化腸道裏幽門螺旋桿菌的影響,以致比其他血型的人較易患上胃癌。

A型者由於血液是各血型中濃度最高的,所以患上心藏疾病如高血壓、冠心病等的機會最高。另外,A型較容易患上貧血,這是因爲胃酸非常低,以致不能有效地吸收維他命B12。

O型比其他血型的人患心臟病的機會少得多,最高風險者為A及AB型。另外,O型也是患胰腺癌機會最低者,其他血型,尤其是B型,患胰腺癌的機會偏高。另外,過去筆者也提過,O型血者患二型糖尿病的機會比其他血型人士小。(不過,常吃小麥(麵粉)、粟米和奶類產品的O型,患乙類糖尿病的機會還是比較高的。而經常吃肉類和奶類產品的A型人,也是乙類糖尿病的高風險者。)

O型並非百毒不侵,他們其實也經常有幽門螺旋桿菌在消化腸道裏出現的情況,但幽門菌在O型體内所引致的疾病並非胃癌,而是胃潰瘍。除了胃潰瘍和胃酸倒流之外,O型最常患的就是敏感性疾病,例如花粉症和哮喘。B型就最不容易患敏感性疾病。

這些消息似乎駭人聽聞,但其實自然療法醫生彼得•戴得蒙在差不多二十年前已經做出了以上以及更多有關血型和病理的觀察。在他的著作”Eat Right 4 Your Type”(中文版《不同血型 不同飲食》)中已詳細地談及,並且設計了《血型食療法》,讓不同血型的人根據自己的健康特徵而進食及做運動,利用後天的影響(表徵遺傳學/epigenetics) ,挑戰大衆以爲遺傳特徵是不能改變的思維。所以,遺傳因子並非注定你一定會患家人曾患的疾病,或者相同血型較易患的疾病。所謂“人可勝天”,這就在乎如何利用最科學的方式而作出後天的調節了。

You Are What You Eat! 你就是你所吃的食物!

“You are what you eat!” 「你就是你所吃的食物!」

大家可能都聽過這句箴言,但最新的科學研究證明,這句話不但適用在比喻的層面上,而且事實上也的確如此。

在以下的片段裏,美國知名的細胞生物學家布魯斯.立普頓博士 (Bruce Lipton)解釋,新的科學研究發現了,每種食物細胞裏都含有微細核糖核酸(Micro RNA),它是影響染色體如何被傳釋的一種重要遺傳物質。

根據表徵遺傳學(epigenetics) (也是戴得蒙醫生的研究領域),我們的DNA並非決定我們一生的所有身體和健康特徵。而最近這項有關Micro RNA的發現,就清楚解釋了爲何我們的遺傳特徵,可以基於環境的各種變化,繼而作出相應的改變。原來,食物裏的Micro RNA不論在甚麽情況下(高溫煮食或急凍),都不會被催毀。它不會從一般的消化途徑而被人體吸收,而是在腸道裏直接原封不動地流入血液裏,繼而在我們體内的細胞,操縱我們的遺傳特徵、影響基因表現。

所以我們吃甚麽,它的遺傳信息也會變成我們身體的一部份。這個發現提醒我們,基因改造的食物,對我們身體會有直接影響,因爲它的Micro RNA,會直接影響我們的基因表現!

同一道理,戴醫生所提倡的血型飲食法,就是基於人體基因的可塑性,教人如何利用對基因有改良作用的食物,促進健康,又通過避免進食對基因有反面影響的食物,減少我們患病的機會,比方説,上一代都有患糖尿病的歷史,這是因爲患病的家人都有同樣的血型加上都是吃慣同一類的食物,所以下一代患同樣疾病的機會會增加。但是,如果能進食對自己血型有利的食物,避免有害的食物,那即使有“遺傳基因”,患上同一病症的機會就會大大減少了。
