Peter J D'Adamo

If you've ever wondered why the latest fad diet doesn't work for you, it could be that you're the wrong blood type for the kinds of foods the diet recommends. Peter J D'Adamo is a second-generation naturopathic physician noted for his popular books on the Blood Type Diet. Best known for his research on human blood groups and nutrition, Dr. D'Adamo is also a well-respected researcher in the field of natural products. He has a medical practice in Wilton, Connecticut. In 2001 Dr. D'Adamo founded the Institute for Human Individuality. Peter D'Adamo makes a persuasive argument that your blood type is an evolutionary marker that tells you which foods you'll process best, and which will be useless calories. He covers the entire range for each of the four blood types, from entrees to condiments and seasonings, and also makes type-specific exercise and lifestyle recommendations.
