"O" Hell No

So has anyone ever heard of the blood type diet? Well it's exactly like the name says, a diet where everything you are or aren't supposed to eat is based on which blood type you have. I have heard tons of people saying that it totally works and changed their lives. Seeing as how I have been dieting and working out for a month and a half and I have not lost 1 pound....I though maybe I should look into it. There are 4 different kinds: A, B, AB, and O. My blood type is O and normally everyone wants my blood {if you need a transfusion} but in this freaking sucks!!! Based on this diet I can pretty much eat nothing and should just go live in a cave. Let me give it to you in a nut shell {except I can't eat nuts} the Dr. who created this diet says that type O's thrive on intense physical exercise and animal protein. Perfect, all I have to do is workout all day everyday and I will be fine. Who needs a life? I guess that person would not be me.

Here is a list of what I can and can't eat on my new diet that will probably last about 5 minutes. Let's start with what I can't eat cause it's a lot longer.

Aren't you guys super excited for me? Seeing as how I am one of the pickiest eaters alive, I eat about 4 things on the Allowed and Most Beneficial lists. Well at least I can still have wine! Maybe I should just become an alcoholic and stop eating, then I would get super skinny. Haha halfway joking. We will see how long this nonsense lasts.
