Socks, computers, diets: One Size Fits All

One size fits all...That's what it said on the package of socks. Well there is no way I could convince my feet that one size fits all. The info on the box said that this printer works on all PC's...uh huh...the salesman, the tech support people and even the printer manufacturer couldn't get that one size fits all printer to work on my unique computer. Solution was to go out and buy a new printer that was matched to my type of computer.

So why would I believe that everyone should be a vegetarian...or that the best way for all of us to lose weight is a low carbohydrate, high protein diet..whether you call it Atkins or Getting in the Zone. Isn't it the same old one size fits all concept applied to our health and eating? Why should I expect any better results here than with my socks and computer? In fact, experience with thousands of patients has taught me that one size doesn't fit all when it comes to health. So how can we determine your size when it comes to foods? A method that has been showing much better results is to size up your blood first. There are 4 basic types of blood and they go by the name of O, A, B and AB. These are all determined by the genes which we inherited from our moms and dads, which they received from our grandparents and on and on it goes.

Maybe you don't think blood type is that important: let's see what happens when we mix some type A & B red blood cells together...the cells agglutinate...which means they jump and clump each other to death. So if you have the type A red stuff in your veins and you eat a banana or some other food that looks a lot like type B blood to your intestines and blood system...do you think there might be some jumping and clumping going on? That's right...one size doesn't fit all when it comes to socks, computers, blood and diets. Let's see there are 4 blood types so...we should be able to fit all those foods that are healthy for your size into your diet. What's your blood type...that's the first thing you need to know. Oh...You Don't Know!!! Hold out your hand...finding out is just a finger stick, a little...oouch and a small drop of blood away.
