Usher, a healthy 36-year-old man, seems like the type who'll do what it takes to keep his body in proper working order and that includes experimenting with weird diets. Atkins? He's done that. Paleo? Been there. Macrobiotics? Ok, sure. Now he's on a diet based on his blood type.

Yep. The singer tells Billboard in his new cover story:

"These days, I try to eat for my blood type when I'm not eating for the fat kid inside me. A doctor I know came up with it, but hasn't released it yet, so I don't want to tell you too much about it. But the idea is to eat the foods that work best for your body. For my blood type the meats I can eat are pork, beef and fish."

All sounds very interesting. For my blood type, the foods I can eat are turkey bacon, Reese's butter cups and Flamin' Hot Cheetos. It's the only way to live.
