The Blood Type Diet, correlates listing Blood Type O’s as having the most low thyroid issues, The Blood Type A’s having low stomach acid, there fore needing more Vitamin B support, and Blood Type B’s needing magnesium for circulatory energy.

To Determine your energy nutritional need:
Look for the number of circles in each column from top to bottom of A-D
If you circled 2 or more in Column A, you may have an iron deficiency. Iron transports oxygen to the brain and muscles for energy. Beans are a great vitamin source of iron. Adding a little lemon or lime juice to your beans, will help release the iron for better availability for your body. Yes beef has iron, yet we need to add more vegetable sources of nutrition to our diets. Beans are Blood Type specific. Be sure to find which ones won’t be musical for you….

If you circled 2 or more in Column B, you may have a B2 (riboflavin) and B12 deficiency. B2 works inside your cells to convert the carbohydrates you eat to energy your cells use, and make you feel better. Good sources of Riboflavin, and B12 and folate are found in fortified cereals. Cheerios are Highly beneficial for All. Almond milk also supplies additional B vitamins. I found peas and celery helpful. Nutritional Yeast flakes, have high vitamin B, and taste really cheesy on eggs and popcorn. Popcorn is only highly beneficial for Blood Type A’s
If you circled 2 or more in Column C, you may have a magnesium deficiency. Magnesium is found in green leafy vegetables and raw almonds and walnuts. Magnesium is necessary for the heart and muscles to work efficiently. Without enough magnesium, the body gets tired more easily. Pumpkin seeds are great, and are ONLY highly beneficial for Blood Type O and Blood Type A.
If you circled 2 or more in Column D, you may have a vitamin D deficiency. Low levels of vitamin D can lead to depressed moods, and fatigue. Vitamin D levels can be increased with 10-15 minutes of sun 2x per day. Mushrooms can also help increase your vitamin D levels. Before cooking, leave them out in bright sunlight for 10-15 minutes.
