I read The Genotype Diet book over the weekend by Dr. D'Adamo. It certainly is an interesting read. It is essentially about how you can understand your genetic inheritance and work with it by eating and exercise to reach optimal health and to age well. The science is much easier to follow that the Eat Right for Your Type books, I think. And I'm always for anything that's going to give me an extra piece of self-understanding. I admit I am struggling with adapting the dietary changes, since I have really gotten used to the Type O program I've used for the last two years, and this has a few different emphases. But I do think that if you want help in making friends with your body, reading this book might help you. You could say his mantra is "one size doesn't NOT fit all," or in other words, the same sorts of diet and exercise approaches do not work for every person.
