  • Fooled Me At First---Now I Know Better!

    May 2, 2008 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: This "diet" book contributes to making people mindful of what they put in their mouths
    Cons: This book = the epitome of pseudo-science

    Summary: This book seems appealing at first. The author has a way of making your feel "special." The author also has a way of making your afraid that you've been eating the wrong food for your blood type, and THAT's the cause of ALL of your health related ... read more

  • It worked- moderately, only because of so many restrictions!

    Dec 3, 2005 by bablondie25 is a Top Reviewer on Epinions in Wellness & Beauty
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Worked minimally. Interesting concept. I don't know if it actually worked for food allergies.
    Cons: A-diet is too soy-rich. Too restrictive. Cuts out whole food groups.

    Summary: I was excited that a doctor was paying attention to my cries for help with thyroid weight I had gained. My naturopathic doctor that I decided to see recommended this book and diet instead of doing a food allergies test. She took my blood type and I was ... read more

    Pros: What I so needed!!!!! Simple, easy.
    Cons: If you don't want to, you won't. That's why some fail.

    Summary: I was over weight and needing help to get myself back on track physically and mentally. After getting married my family friend stopped me in a store and said "try this", "it has changed my life". I thought... what ever... like this would work. I would be ... read more

  • Eat Right for your Type diet, Minor eating changes required for me

    May 11, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Lots of choices between Highly Beneficial and Neutral. Got me off of my plateau.
    Cons: Some of my fave foods are in the AVOID area.

    Summary: Earlier I wrote a review and posted it incorrectly in this category. I wrote more of a review of the book than the actual diet so this will hopefully fix that problem and be more towards the actual diet and it's results etc from my humble ... read more

  • A Great Diet For Some People

    Mar 21, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: None.
    Cons: If you're not type O, everything.

    Summary: I first heard of this diet four years ago at a family Christmas gathering where a formally chunky niece breezed in wearing skin tight clothes and looking as slim as a model. When pressed for details she revealed she had been following the Eat Right For ... read more

  • Someone's Get Rich Quick Scheme That Worked

    Jan 10, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: It beats stimulant diets.
    Cons: No scientific basis, restrictive, expensive

    Summary: Welcome to the next fad diet that people are all going to laugh at in a few years. Your blood - what could be more important? It flows through your entire body, carries nutrients, oxygen, water - so why not make everyone believe that blood type is the ... read more

  • Not a diet!

    Jul 24, 2002 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Best book on healthy eating I've ever read
    Cons: You may have to give up some favorite foods but the results are amazing

    Summary: I had suffered with severe, itchy excema for 2 years. Doctors (internist, dermatologist, specialist at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore) offered me little more than cortizone cream which is really bad for the immune system. I showed my closest friends the ... read more

  • Atkins Veterans, Please Read

    Jul 19, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: an elegant theory worthy of more medical exploration; book contains interesting explanations; relatives did well
    Cons: inventor seems a little greedy; i am irredeemable

    Summary: I'm writing this more because I feel pretty sure there's something to this diet than because I have directly benefitted from it or been failed by it. I actually received the book by accident in a shipment of other books back in 1997. The ... read more

  • Probably best book on diet out there.

    Mar 25, 2002 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Well referenced, one of the rare diets that does more than help you lose weight.
    Cons: Hard to cook for members of family with different blood types.

    Summary: Except that most diet book readers want fast weight loss and not much else. This book/concept is different. You tend to eat with perhaps a greater sensitivity to what you have adapted to, via genetics, etc. In talking to people in my book store who were ... read more

  • At last, eating plans that work for everyone!

    Jan 3, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Well-researched, makes sense, easy to follow, diet in the sense of 'eating plan'
    Cons: Should not be categorised with weight-loss diets. This is about healthy eating.

    Summary: I had mixed feelings about this book until a friend persuaded me to give it a try. In fact it was the later book, 'Live Right 4 your type' that I read first; the 'Eat right..' book is now a little out of date as a great deal more research has been done, ... read more

    Cons: Nothing works fast, not even this lifestyle change!

    Summary: I bought this book about two years after the birth of my two daughters. Before my pregnancy, I weighed 143 lbs, and at 5'9", this was slim enough for me. I am a truck driver so I am muscular (muscle weighs more than fat.). After my two daughters, ... read more

    Cons: Hard to get used to, difficult for me to give up wheat.

    Summary: Dr. Peter D'Adamo, the doctor who pioneered this "diet," was my mother physician and I also visited him a few times before his books were released. Not everyone interested in trying this diet will be fortunate enough to sit down with Dr. D'Adamo, but he ... read more

    Pros: Interesting Alternative to other diets
    Cons: Limited information, too general, hard to follow.

    Summary: This book is a very hot topic right now. Some say it's the greatest thing since, well, sliced bread, yet, there are others who think it's just another silly, overpriced, under-researched diet book. I fall into the second category. ... read more

    Cons: Alternative food options provided are limited and this can discourage people if they can't figure out that there are many more available!

    Pros: easy to read
    Cons: strict following would be tough

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: improved health and well-being
    Cons: none really

    Summary: First, let me point out that DIET is a truly misunderstood word. Diet does not mean weight loss. Do you really believe that is why hospitals and or nursing homes, etc. employ Dietitians - to make all their patients or residents lose weight. I don't ... read more

    Pros: Probably foods you naturally eat
    Cons: Won't make you lose significant weight

    Summary: Ok, first off, I have to say that I think the other reviews were too negative. True, this is a "fad diet," so don't expect the same success as you'd get if you suddenly started eating healthy and excercising. However, the theory behind this ... read more

    Cons: Not based in fact, not researched, not truthful, ineffective, dangerous
