A Blood Type B - Inch 4

Blood Type B

Inch 4 - Eliminate Corn

For Type Bs the biggest factors in weight gain are corn, wheat, buckwheat, lentils, tomatoes, peanuts and sesame seeds. If you want to be the best you that you can be - you must eliminate corn. The hardest part about eliminating corn is figuring out everything that is corn that isn't called "corn."  

The most common corn by-product names are:

Corn flour, cornmeal. corn gluten, cornflakes, etc.

Cornstarch, also listed on labels as starch or vegetable starch

Corn oil

Corn syrup or high fructose corn syrup




Fructose or crystalline fructose

Hydrol, treacle


Free fatty acids




Millimeters (Tips)

1. Health food stores often stock corn-free foods, including ketchup, mayonnaise, corn-free baking powder, cereals, etc.

2. Try some of the following alternatives:

- Rice syrup instead of corn syrup

- Potato starch, arrowroot powder, tapioca, and other flours as thickeners instead of cornstarch

- Lemon juice, apple cider vinegar and other non-corn derived vinegars instead of distilled vinegar

3. Read food labels. Read them again. And then read them again. Corn is a tough one to eliminate as the front of boxes are more likely to say "gluten free" - but it is rare that you'll find one that says "corn free."

4. Keep a list on your phone (or in your pocket) of all the names corn goes by so you can double check it at the grocery store.

5. Slow and steady wins the race. Replace one corn-based product, such as corn syrup, with homemade or corn-free alternatives. Once that is second nature, move on to another, such as corn starch.
