Your Blood Type Health

Has anyone in your family died from a heart attack, cancer, or astroke? If so then there is a very high likelihood that your bloodtype might be A or AB. This is because cancers are associated withgroup A, as are clotting diseases, including blood clots, which inmany cases lead to coronary heart disease and fatal heart attacks.Do you get yearly check ups? Most americans actually don't take thetime to go to the doctor once per year to get an annual check up. Wefeel that if we aren't around a certain age that we don't need tofocus on our health. This has been an issue for millions of americanswithout health insurance. Don't let you not having health insurancekeep you away from the doctor every year.I had a friend who was only 18 years old, who died from heart failurewhich was associated with a blood disorder. We all think that it willnever happen to us but we are totally wrong. Your health is not a gameof russian roulette. We have to make sure that we are in perfecthealth as often as we can. We only have one life to live so make sureyou do your best to live it right.Studies have shown that given the right diet, each blood type canextend life expectancy up to twenty years. How you ask? Well food hasadverse effects on your body. Most diseases or ailments associatedwith food takes years or even decades to show up. You can easilyprevent these by eating foods that will compliment your particular type.Did you know that high insulin levels in your body, from eating lotsof carbohydrates, lower your body' anabolic response, growth hormonesecretion, immune response, and boost fat storing enzymes, all at thesame time?Are you learning anything yet?

Keeping a good diet

How hard can it be to eat the right foods on a daily basis? That seems like an easy question to answer but we all know that it can be the hardest thing in the world. Many of us start diets with good intentions but we usually end up going back to our old eating habits as soon as we get to our ideal weight. Diets are temporary, we need something more permanent. We sometimes need a lifestyle change in order to get any where long term.

Going on a diet does not have to be a hard thing. We can start small and change your eating habits gradually. We should look at dieting as we do getting our education. We start college knowing how long it will take to obtain our degree. Most of us usually finish school in 4 years other slow learners take 5 or 6, but they finish. Do you start a job as an intern and expect to be vice president of the company in 2 weeks? I hope not...

There are charts that let you know which food is good for your blood type and which foods are not. The easiest way in my opinion is to avoid the foods that will do harm to your body. Once you know exactly which foods will be harmful then you can just eat everything else which would either fall into the beneficial or neutral category.

Try food replacement as one of your first steps. If you notice that you are giving up something that you love or have been eating for years, try replacing it with something similiar in the same food group. In the end the main thing that should matter most to you is you!!!

We can prolong our life if we focus on the right things. This is a year of change, try to eat healthier for a better you. Lets make it happen in 2009.
