AB’s should avoid caffeine and alcohol, especially when you’re in stressful situations. Focus on tofu, seafood, dairy and green vegetables if you are trying to lose weight. “Avoid all smoked or cured meats.” These foods can cause stomach cancer in people with low levels of stomach acid.
When it comes to stress, you most resemble type O in your tendency to over produce catecholamines like adrenaline, yet you also have the additional complexity of type B’s rapid clearing of nitrous oxide, so you suffer the physical consequences of high emotions. Your greatest danger is the tendency to internalize your emotions, especially anger and hostility, which is much more damaging to your health than externalizing it. Exercise plays a critical component in stress reduction and maintaining a healthy emotional balance for Type AB. For type AB we recommend a combination of aerobic exercise like running or biking for three days, and calming exercise such as yoga or tai chi for two days.
