Your AB Blood Type Diet Chart

Your blood type diet chart for your AB type bloodThose with Type AB blood have a unique physiology that inherits characteristics of both Type A blood and Type B blood physiologies. This means they face some particular challenges in taking proper care of their bodies and eating right. While those with Type A blood generally do better without meat, and those with Type B blood are encouraged to include meat in their diet, those with Type AB blood are caught somewhere in between.

If you have Type AB blood, one of the guiding principles of your diet should be moderation. Meat is necessary but your digestion will not be able to handle too much. Many grains provide needed energy and nutrients but consuming too much will imbalance your body’s pH. It is also important to stay away from foods that are incompatible or harmful to the Type AB blood physiology. Below is a chart that will help you make the right choices for a proper Type AB blood type diet.

How to Change your Diet Effectively

As you’ve probably learned by now, making dietary changes can be difficult. No matter how determined you are to make these changes or think they will benefit your body, you may struggle to maintain them in the long term. This can be particularly true for people with Type AB blood types, who need to find a balance between a vegetarian diet and one that contains meat.

To ensure that you get the most from your new diet, here’s what to consider before making this major life change:

Your Overall Condition

Changing your diet may sound simple and you think you can do it yourself, but it may not be as simple as it seems. Many people make dietary changes to lose weight or to gain more energy with the idea that a poor diet is the main cause of these problems. However, your diet is probably only one potential cause of these kinds of issues.

There are lots of conditions that can cause inexplicable weight gain or poor energy levels. If you have one of these conditions, dietary changes won’t help and may actually lead to more stress and worsen the underlying condition. That’s why it’s important to consult with a medical professional first who will look at your body holistically and uncover any of these underlying causes.


Stress is a common problem in the modern world and one that’s very damaging for your health. Lots of factors in your everyday life can cause stress, including positive changes. Stress is also a common cause of weight gain and low energy.

If your stress levels are high, it will not only impact your weight and energy levels, it may also hamper your efforts to improve your diet. Trying to establish and maintain a new and different diet will further increase your stress levels. This will interfere with your weight loss efforts and perhaps even bring or or worsen underlying conditions.

That’s why you should get professional help before you make this kind of radical change to your life.

Expert Help

Most medical professionals focus only at the body’s symptoms in isolation these days. If you go to one of these doctors with weight gain, then they will recommend strategies to treat that symptom without looking for underlying root causes. This can be frustrating for your weight loss efforts and potentially very dangerous for your long term health.

Instead, look for a medical professional who will treat your body holistically and look for underlying and potentially hidden root causes for the issues you’re experiencing. This is not only the best way to achieve your weight loss and energy goals, it will also help safeguard your health over the long term.

The Takeaway

Changing to a Type AB diet isn’t as easy as simply eating different foods. Nothing in your body works in isolation and weight gain and low energy can be early warning signs of more serious problems. If you want to succeed in changing your diet safely and address all the causes of the problems you’re experiencing, then here’s what to do:

  1. Talk to your doctor first to try and identify any underlying root causes
  2. Pay attention to your health before and after the changes to identify any additional symptoms or side effects to the changes you’re making
  3. Make dietary changes slowly and try to choose organic, free range, natural products where possible to avoid further health complications
