The Diet

“Do try to acquire an in-depth understanding of your body.
Do try to be curious, and never stop experimenting.”

This book offers advice on nutrition based on blood groups and aimed at preventing and resolving health problems. It is not intended as a substitute for medical assessment by a specialist, in cases where it may be necessary.

La dieta del dottor Mozzi

Dr. Mozzi’s diet is meant to draw attention to nutrition and its repercussions on the human body. Its content is intended to enable anyone, even those with no medical knowledge, to keep their state of health in check. It is a practical manual that affords us the possibility of understanding what goes on within our bodies. These notes were compiled after thirty years of medical practice and twenty years of observation and study of the human body and its reactions to the ingestion of some specific foods. A distinguishing feature of the method is its simplicity, which renders it accessible to all. It allows one to learn how to “listen” to their own body’s signals, to identify the effect that food may have on different persons and to determine the most suitable lifestyle for each person.

Starting from the beginning of the 20th century, revolutionary discoveries were made in the fields of genetics and medicine: blood groups were discovered in 1901, DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) in 1953 by James Watson and Francis Crick, and the complete map of the human genetic heritage in 2000. All of this enabled medicine to take great strides, and brought about the awareness that every human being has a unique blueprint. Blood groups are determined by a precise genetic template, a defining characteristic that sets every individual apart from the rest and allows us to understand the constitution and behaviour of our immune system. The four blood groups O, A, B and AB can be used as a reliable guide in choosing a suitable diet for each of us, one that may help us attain an improved physical condition and a reduced risk of disease. In addition, it can also help us resolve the medical conditions that may arise.
