Eating For Your Blood Type On Koh Phangan

25 Oct 2019

Do you want to feel GREAT and get the most out of your exercise and food so you can enjoy the best stay you possibly can while in Koh Phangan? Have you ever noticed how not everyone should do the same thing or do the same exercise? That’s because what foods we absorb well and how our bodies handle stress differs with each blood type.  

 

Firstly, different foods and types of exercise will affect people differently.  By following a diet according to your blood type, you’ll be eating according to what works best with your chemistry which will help you get the most of what you eat. 

Secondly, since your blood type reflects your internal chemistry, it actually determines the way you absorb nutrients.  The more efficiently your body absorbs nutrients the better you will feel.  

Thirdly, according to your blood type, there are certain foods that will promote weight gain and foods that will help you lose weight.  We all want to look our best staying on paradise island so it's important to keep this into consideration too!

 

Here are the basics of living a healthy lifestyle on Koh Phangan according to your blood type:

 

BLOOD TYPE O: O Is For OLD

Type O is the oldest blood type.  Type O people’s ancestors were the hunting-gathering type that propelled the human species to the top of the food chain, making them the most dangerous predators on Earth. In other words, they are the carnivores of the bunch and because they were always on the move they did not grow food, rather just picked whatever they could find along the way.  There was less food, so competition for meat was intense and hunters had to fight each other for fighting grounds.

BLOOD TYPE A:  A Is For AGRARIAN

This blood type emerged after humans spread far and wide across the planet and began to settle.  Agriculture and animal domestication were the hallmarks of its culture. Such a lifestyle enabled people to establish stable communities and a permanent living situation.  This change in diet and environment resulted in an entirely new mutation in the digestive tracts - and Type A blood was born.

BLOOD TYPE B: B Is For BALANCE

As people began to move away from the hot savannahs of Africa towards the cold highlands of Himalayas, Blood Type B mutated in response to climatic changes.  Because of the nature of the land they chose to til, and climates unique to their areas, these people created novel irrigation and cultivation techniques and grew different food.
