Your blood type has an enormous effect on your body’s physiology. Different blood types handle nutrients in food in very different ways. Those with Type A blood often have greater difficulty digesting meat. When meat makes up a large part of the diet the body is put under more significant stress. To avoid this, a vegetarian diet can be greatly beneficial if you have Type A blood.
However, a proper vegetarian diet with the optimal spread of nutrients, minerals, and proteins can be tricky. Knowing which foods to avoid and which are the most beneficial is key to getting started on a diet most suited to your physiology. The chart below outlines many key foods that are most beneficial, some that are reasonably well tolerated, and those that should be completely avoided.
