OILS AND FATS
Blood group A doesn’t need a lot of fat; on the contrary, they should be avoided. But although, I think you should not totally avoid oils, as is proved, that tablespoon of olive oil on cooked vegetables or fruit will lead to better digestion. Additionally, olive oil will also help to lower cholesterol, and thus protect the heart and vein.
I would recommend corn oil, as is proven to be cousin digestion problems. It not necessary, that all food that you consume is seasoned with olive oil, but still be aware and choose among allowed and recommended oil. It’s however olive oil, that is certainly the most delicious and healthy. Useful: olive oil, linseed oil. Neutral: fish oil, rapeseed oil. Harmful: peanut oil, coconut butter, butter, oil, maize germ oil and sesame oil.
Stone fruit and seeds – Pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, almonds and walnuts are certainly very valuable in the diet group A, as they can be substitute for not having enough proteins, which can we gain by eating too little meat. The best among dry fruits are peanuts. Eat them often along with a red wrapper, because it contains lectins, which helps to fight against cancer.

CEREALS AND CEREALS PRODUCTS
Group A is quite good with cereal and cereals products, so they can enjoy them daily. But do choose among naturally produced cereals. Do add to your menu fallowing; millet, soy flour, corn flour and whole oats. Ass characteristic for group A is, that they have enough mucus; therefore consumption of wheat should be limited. Otherwise it would increase secretion of mucus. Just trying will make you help you find out how much wheat you can eat without any adverse effects.
People with group A must assure, that wheat that is consumed (this causes acidity in the stomach) is balanced with fruit, which reacts basically in the stomach. Similar rules apply to cereal product, therefore chose among allowed cereals. But, do pay attention, and do avoid prepared food; minestrone, frozen or already prepared pasta.

Vegetables are essential, since they supply us with minerals, enzymes and antioxidants. Enjoy them the most natural – raw or cooked in steam as then we keep a maximum of nutrients. Group A can eat almost all vegetables, with some certain exceptions; the peppers and fermented olives may interfere with sensitive gastrointestinal. Moreover, group A is also very sensitive to the lectins of plain and sweet potato, batata potato and cabbage.
Group A should avoid tomatoes, because they contain very harmful lectins, which are bad for digestion tract. Most recommended vegetables are; broccoli, which are full of antioxidant. These substances may stimulate immune system and inhibit mutation of cells. Some other recommended vegetables; carrots, green cabbage, kale, pumpkin and spinach. But, do not forget garlic, which have antibiotic characteristics, which stimulates immune system and improves blood flow. Garlic is beneficial for all blood types, but most likely – group A can get the most of it, as it has very sensitive immune system.
Second very important food fro group A is tofu. You can make tastier way to prepared it; mix it with herbs and vegetables and you can also add a drop of soya sauce.

For group is recommended to eat fruit at least 3 –times per day. Priority should be given to more basic fruit as forest fruit and plums, which help to balance cereal effect, which make muscles more acidic. This can affect group A negatively. Melons are also basic fruit, but should be consumed in small quantities, because they contain a microscopic fungus, which are often hard to digest. Bad tolerance is also with tropical fruit as mango and papaya, which contains enzymes that are beneficial for other groups. Pineapple on contrary is great for digestion.
Group A should also avoid oranges, eventhough you like them a lot – but they irritating stomach and make difficulties with absorption of minerals. Minerals are very much needed. Oranges triggers stomach acid reaction. But, on the other hand, also grapefruit is sour fruit, but reacts basically and therefore do not irritate digestive tract. Also lemons are usefully the same way as grapefruit. As vitamin C is a great antioxidant, it’s quite important for you to get enough of this vitamin, as you are not recommended to eat organs – so replaced them with other sour fruit as written above (also kiwi).
Furthermore, also banana is not very good for group A, as this fruit is full of potassium, as a substitute we need to increase the quantity of apricots, figs and some types of melons, which are a good source of potassium.
