I'm seriously trying to eat
the best I can for my body. I'm
Trying the blood type diet and
am curious if anyone else has
done this diet? I don't want
to be discouraged, as I realize
there are people who disagree
with it. (I've read many do).
If I find it doesn't work, I'll
quit- of course.

The interesting thing I learned
was the stomach acid is virtually
low with my blood type - this
Is so true. I can't digest my
food, it feels yucky.

The weird thing with me is I'm
attracted to what I'm addicted
to and believe those are food
allergies. I've read many of
those foods are forbidden for
my blood type. As well there
are couple things I enjoy
others don't. Which I am
supposed to eat.

If anyone knows, or has my blood type
and can answer, I haven't read the
book, just some searching. I'm AB
and am hoping there's some kind
of bread I can eat. 😐


😻Thank you for any help.

Hi, I have read about this diet. I don't know much about the AB restrictions so can only give you my perspective as a type O. I do like some things about the plan but not all.

The general principles of the O diet agree with me. The biggest thing about the O diet (as told to me by a company representative) was not consuming wheat. Since I avoided wheat my health has improved massively, night and day, literally. (I didn't actually 'follow' the diet because it was too restrictive, I only noticed this correlation when I eliminated wheat of my own accord, due to a recurring health issue that finally cleared up when I avoided wheat.) I went near vegetarian once and it didn't work for me. The Type O diet is a high protein low starchy carb kind of thing and is not compatible with being a vegetarian. I'm still tinkering with my diet but the general principles for me work well when I do follow them. In real life, I actually don't follow the diet that closely (too expensive and too restrictive).

What I found interesting is that the forbidden foods on the O diet, some of them I haven't liked since I was a child and some of them I found did cause me problems, unexpectedly. (e.g. eggplant) That said, I still eat foods that I'm not supposed to as a type O (e.g. beans and lentils occasionally). I don't have any major health issues. I honestly don't know if the diet would work for everyone. But after my previous health issues, I've been avoiding/restricting stuff which I know upsets me and these just happen to be some of the forbidden foods on the Type O diet.

Some of the general principles of the diet are to exercise regularly and to avoid processed food. This is pretty good advice anyway and not specific to this diet.

I guess I'm not totally convinced that everyone fits neatly into one of four groups. The diet plan as it stands I find overly restrictive. To the best of my knowledge, it also doesn't take into account underlying health conditions e.g. allergies, intolerances. Maybe you could try to look at the most important things for your blood type that you are not supposed to eat and consider those as a start. So for AB, according to the internet, this is (correct me if I'm wrong):

'Type AB blood: Foods to focus on include tofu, seafood, dairy, and green vegetables. He says people with type AB blood tend to have low stomach acid. Avoid caffeine, alcohol, and smoked or cured meats.'

So as a first step, how much caffeine, alcohol and smoked meats do you consume? Maybe you could limit those if you eat them a lot? I don't know about the bread. Maybe an AB can answer that one (it's the rarest blood type of the four so I hope you find someone). I would suggest, rather than following the diet plan as written, to go down the list, pick out the foods you know are causing you problems and start limiting those. Then try eating more of the recommended foods (tofu, seafood, dairy, green veg). See how you go with those, maybe? They sound quite healthy to me except for over-consuming dairy and there are some health concerns about soy/tofu. I guess it depends what you can tolerate and doesn't cause issues. If you do have underlying health conditions, you would have to take these into consideration as well (check with your doctor etc).

It really depends on what you currently eat and how many changes you have to make. If too many changes have to be made, you won't be able to stick it out long-term. This is supposed to be a lifetime way of eating not a short-term thing so you know, it has to be something you can stick with. And thinking of what a nutritionist told me once, she said it was best to eat a wide variety of nutritious foods (not necessarily food groups) and to eat in moderation (not eating one food group at the expense of others). That way you stand a better chance of getting adequate nutrition for your body. BTW I'm not a fan of the traditional food pyramid and food groups, reeks of commercialism etc.

My two cents. (I am not a doctor or nutritionist so these are my suggestions and experience only). Sorry if that was confusing. The long and short of it is, you have to figure out what's best for you, and everyone's different.

Magikaal,
Thank you for your reply.
I agree with your suggestions too.

In fact I've only adopted a portion
of the diet directed@my blood type.
I have always avoided soy and tofu.
I'm not vegan yet my body rejects
red meat and pork is reasonable to
avoid, as my blood type is recommended
to. I do enjoy turkey and eggs.
There's so much I need to exchange
like herbal tea instead of coffee
but I know it will help me feel better.
In about 6weeks I'm seeing a nutrition
advisor, maybe they'll have me only
apply a portion of this diet anyway.
I guess I asked because almost 2months
is a lengthy wait and we need to eat to
sustain our physical lives (damn, lol).
Bread s my concern actually.

Flexibility is what I'm trying to
achieve. Being too attached to certain
foods are creating my problems, I only
thought my blood type might give me
a chemistry diet that blends with my
life force. A structure of sorts.

Today I searched the sluggish digestive
symptom and found some do equate it spiritually
-which makes complete sense
to me.
http://www.sarahpetrunoshamanism.com/blog/is-it-something-spiritual-n ausea-indigestion-and-upset-stomach/

I'm going to research this a bit and eat
about 80% of the (listen to my body of course.)
recommended list until
I can get a professional to guide me.

Thanks again, Magikaal.

I am also O;
O negative.
The diet for O- does help me.
Definitely lowers my blood sugar and lessons some abdominal cramps etc.

MoonMystic
I suppose a diet for AB or any specific blood type would help folks with those specific blood types too.

Basically listen to your body and its cravings.
Also keep a food journal.
I do; and it helps me identify problems and solutions to a degree.

This is interesting, that it does help both of you.

@Moon I think your approach sounds sensible. And best of luck with the coffee I'm sure some people wouldn't be able to give that one up lol.

I just looked up grains for type AB and looks like you can eat them (except for regular wheat, corn, buckwheat and kamut). Seems to be mostly meats that are not recommended for ABs with their low stomach acid. From what I can find...

Grains OK to eat for AB:
Millet, Oat bran, Oatmeal, Rice Bran, Puffed rice, Rye, Spelt and sprouted wheat and any products such as flour, bread and noodles made with these grain products (The inner kernel of the wheat grain is highly acid forming for Type AB. Wheat is not adviced if Type AB is trying to lose weight. The inner kernel of wheat grain is alkaline in Type Os and Bs, it becomes acidic in Type As and AB.) All kinds of rice and any products such as flour, bread and noodles made with these.

Grains to Avoid for AB:
Buckwheat, Corn and corn flour
Bread and noodles made with Buckwheat and Corn
Kamut, Kasha, soba noodles, Artichoke pasta

So looks like regular wheat, buckwheat and corn are not allowed. You would have to go with rice bread, rye or spelt bread. Doesn't seem to be an issue as long as you can find a specialty bakery that produces rice, rye, oat and spelt loaves. Depending on where you live, it may be hard to find. When I lived in a big city we had a fantastic store that had all these types of loaves in addition to mainstream wheat bread, but now in a small city I don't get these. My impression is that rice bread is the easiest to digest but it's really bland. I love the taste of rye and spelt (they taste like "normal" bread but I can't get them here). I've heard some people make their own bread but that's a bit of effort lol. So good luck with finding the bread. Spelt in case you didn't know is an ancient form of wheat and to me it tastes the same as regular wheat i.e. regular bread. Rye has a strong taste which some people don't like but I rather like it. Have you eaten it before? You will also have to be careful that gluten free breads or some specialty breads may have corn and different grains in them so always check ingredients (no wheat, no buckwheat, no corn, no kamut).
And oh, I forgot, it's quite likely that wherever you live, these specialty breads are going to be significantly more expensive.

FWIW it looks like you're on the right track and I think you should feel better as long as you can stick to it. Just see how you go and take it step by step.

@Lex, that is interesting. I'm O+. There are some small differences between O+ and O- like O- can eat lentils but O+ cannot. Having said that, I still eat a lot of rice because cutting out grains is too expensive for my budget I think you must be in the same boat. I have blood sugar issues and I think lentils/beans are useful in that regard (and cheap!)

Thank you for your reply.
I'm failing with the coffee.
Everything else,tbh. This past
week has been strange and stressful
and 'sigh' I'm a stress eater. It's
not meat with me but I do over do
foods I'm allowed, which is not
productive in achieving health.

I appreciate the list you added.
I've found some varying diets, DrLam
seems to be the main one. With bread
labels there is a lot of reading. I'll
look into the rice bread. Maybe groceries
online is easiest with healthy/value
of price, in mind. Bread is my current
headache so I'll start searching a decent
one today.
I hope the price won't be too much
but yes, food has gotten horrendous
in value within the USA. It seems
everything is 3x as high as it was in
2011/2012. Especially for anyone with
limited bugets and seeking best nutrition
available.

Hi MoonMystic.
In your post just above this one, yes, prices are ~crazy.

I'm O+ Blood-type.

Bread? ...
I just began noticing in the past year that certain brands of bread affect my gut.

DEFINITELY COFFEE!

Has MANY Health Benefits.
I've gone months without it before.
My doctor told ME that it is GOOD for me -- ('conditions' the restrictive or constrictive actions of blood-vessels in the head-- for people who tend to headaches at times).

Don't know if the caffeine helps or if it's something else in coffee, but pain relievers do contain caffeine.

Went to the doctor this morning. He prescribed a (non-narcotic) pain pill, which has caffeine as one of its ingredients.

There are over-the-counter brand names that advertise they put caffeine in it.

So yes, it IS good for that.

Anybody with type O, what's your experience with corn? Do share...

This is mine.

The first 30years of my life I had them in my diet. My health was never good back then but they were not the culprit.
I relocated and had less and less corn. Practically none for more than 5 years. Mister is a choosy eater and he was the cook in the house.
When he was out of town, I bought plenty of corns and made corn fritters spiced with turmeric, chilli and lemon leaves, my home town's style. I had only corn fritters for dinner. My head spinned and I felt so sick in less than 10minutes. The next day I tried the same meal. The same sickness.
A couple of days later I had corn again as a side dish. With no spices. Again it happened.

So...no more corn for me in this life.

I'm O+ Blood-type.

Bread? ...
I just began noticing in the past year that certain brands of bread affect my gut.

I was born with grain allergies... I have my baby-book. I see all the times they tried different grains, and I would have reactions. (Would be interesting to astro-chart it!!)

Bought a new Organic cereal the other day-- puffed brown rice, with Cacoa... and ~~~I think~~~ I might be allergic to it??? My tongue turned painful and raw-ish afterwards, twice now. *throws hands up in the air*

When Cheerios came out with a 5-grain product?? My whole mouth turned raw... ONE of those (or a few) I had allergy too.


O-types are supposed to be stronger if they eat red meat? ... I found that to be true.

I had tended to back off of red-meats in many periods of my life.
... One of my ex's noticed that after we had steak, my constitution had a much greater VITALiTY. {I was grateful he noticed.} So, once a week, the family would do that (for me, LOL).

I would have easily adopted a no-meat diet.

I rarely eat heavy amounts of the meats now... except for quality deli turkey sandwich slices, and the extra protein in spaghetti sauce when I need that boost.

I love the taste of a variety of meats, and I did very well on them at a younger age. But it is not so much agreeing with my digestion as it once did.

~~~ I think I'm diet-confused right now??? LOL.

I eat a LOT OF DAIRY...
That fits me VERY well. Some people swear that dairy is toxic? ... but, not for me.

There are vegans who even try to GUILT people who eat eggs, CHEESE, etc? ... like, you're being CRUEL to a cow?? ..
*thank you God, for farmers who have cows, and treat them well... because I wouldn't be able to be alive now??? oh nooo LOL.*
I COUNT on being able to eat dairy, and chicken-eggs.

I have some major plant-allergies and issues. ...

Migraine triggers...
Found out that SOY and BEANS and legumes trigger headaches...
Super-dark chocolate, and red wines.
Fish and Liver (I LOVED LOVED LOVED!!!!) are migraine triggers too. (But not the shell-foods.)

Kale (which I LOVE) seems to want to disagree with ME lately. LOL. It's tasty! I like it. ... But (like MoonMystic said), I might have over-indulged in it too much. Too much of a good thing???

I used to LOVE sprout-sandwiches, and my stomach can't handle it (lacks enzymes to break it down? found that out in my 20s).

A growing number of nuts now, (except peanuts, YAY surprisingly), and a few raw fruit types (e.g. uncooked/unprocessed apples) give me the start of anaphylactic reactions?
GreenTea and the black teas I'm getting severe reactions to now. .. almost anaphylactic?


Had to give up peanutbutter in the past year though (awwwwwww!!) because it and citrus produce "too much acid."

Goat and goat cheese, just plain ~hurt!!
Almond milk????? {wha', you trying to KILL me?? roflmao}

I had to get rid of 'Senior oriented' boost Protein drinks..
(soy-- a headache in every bottle).
EVEN some of the Multiple-Vitamins now?
I had to stop taking vitamins around a decade ago.

I guess what I'm trying to say is that I am [b]sooooo Frustrated when it comes to Diet and the kinds of things I could eat.

I would be an absolute PURIST FOOD HEALTH NUT, if I didn't have allergies...

When I was in college, I ate a pretty pure diet for a while? Then, if I'd have a junk-food, my body would OVER-purge from it? ... So, I learned to 'Balance' my diet and make sure to include foods others of my friends ate.

(Makes me feel like I'm some kind of wrong or bad person sometimes??? *sorry vegans*
... I NEED to eat cheese!! eggs, and milk! ..)

(Again, MoonMystic) ..
When I ate pepridge farms hearty white, I started noticing worse gut reactions. When I swapped to the home-baked deli store brand, it stopped. Went back and forth a few times to check. ... You might want to experiment like that?

--
You mentioned headache recently?? or is that me? LOL

I think we have close house-cusps. I have had a major problem with those recently. I don't 'know' if it's transits, or night and day SONIC-abuses from neighbors?

All I know is that I feel sore, and "raw" in my brain and body. Sometimes I wonder if my posts make sense?
(and later, I find that they were alright-- )

Sorry if I sound like I'm complaining... ugh! Just ugh!!

This too shall pass..[/B]


Hi Mirage.
Yes, bread can be troublesome in todays
food industry. They complicated what
should have always been a simple fiber
source of food. Most bread is truly
devoid of anything except 'carb'. So sad
for those of us who grew up believing we
needed it to complete a meal (sandwich).
I'm running on because bread is one of
my addiction issues, as it is apparent now.
Did you settle to one bread or are you
still alternating? How is it working
out?

Yes to my migraines. I can't quit coffee.
I did kick tea. I doubt coffee will
be removed from my standard. I have
a long history of it pretty much daily.


I think our house cusps mustbe close
-aren't you also a Sag rising? My
neighbors too, lol . What
sign is your 6H, I wonder? Virgo is
mine. Your posts are always written
superbly. I admireyour attention
to details too. As you already know.

My apologies for being tardy with replies.
I'm scattered, my chart even proves it. hehe


I hope you're doing well. ((Mirage))

awwww HUGS MoonMystic!!!

I haven't switched back to the pepridge bread again for a while. I've been staying with the store-homebaked brand.

I HOPE you find the answers to your mystery and diet!

*thank you God, for farmers who have cows, and treat them well... because I wouldn't be able to be alive now??? oh nooo LOL.*
I COUNT on being able to eat dairy, and chicken-eggs.

I have some major plant-allergies and issues. ...

Migraine triggers...
Found out that SOY and BEANS and legumes trigger headaches...
Super-dark chocolate, and red wines.
Fish and Liver (I LOVED LOVED LOVED!!!!) are migraine triggers too. (But not the shell-foods.)

Kale (which I LOVE) seems to want to disagree with ME lately. LOL. It's tasty! I like it. ... But (like MoonMystic said), I might have over-indulged in it too much. Too much of a good thing???

I used to LOVE sprout-sandwiches, and my stomach can't handle it (lacks enzymes to break it down? found that out in my 20s).

A growing number of nuts now, (except peanuts, YAY surprisingly), and a few raw fruit types (e.g. uncooked/unprocessed apples) give me the start of anaphylactic reactions?
GreenTea and the black teas I'm getting severe reactions to now. .. almost anaphylactic?


Had to give up peanutbutter in the past year though (awwwwwww!!) because it and citrus produce "too much acid."

Goat and goat cheese, just plain ~hurt!!
Almond milk????? {wha', you trying to KILL me?? roflmao}

I had to get rid of 'Senior oriented' boost Protein drinks..
(soy-- a headache in every bottle).
EVEN some of the Multiple-Vitamins now?
I had to stop taking vitamins around a decade ago.

I guess what I'm trying to say is that I am [b]sooooo Frustrated when it comes to Diet and the kinds of things I could eat.

I would be an absolute PURIST FOOD HEALTH NUT, if I didn't have allergies...

When I was in college, I ate a pretty pure diet for a while? Then, if I'd have a junk-food, my body would OVER-purge from it? ... So, I learned to 'Balance' my diet and make sure to include foods others of my friends ate.

(Makes me feel like I'm some kind of wrong or bad person sometimes??? *sorry vegans*
... I NEED to eat cheese!! eggs, and milk! ..)

(Again, MoonMystic) ..
When I ate pepridge farms hearty white, I started noticing worse gut reactions. When I swapped to the home-baked deli store brand, it stopped. Went back and forth a few times to check. ... You might want to experiment like that?

--
You mentioned headache recently?? or is that me? LOL

I think we have close house-cusps. I have had a major problem with those recently. I don't 'know' if it's transits, or night and day SONIC-abuses from neighbors?

All I know is that I feel sore, and "raw" in my brain and body. Sometimes I wonder if my posts make sense?
(and later, I find that they were alright-- )

Sorry if I sound like I'm complaining... ugh! Just ugh!!

This too shall pass..[/B]


Mirage, I'm awful with replies. Especially during a rx Mercury. & miss
huge pieces to reply to. I'm trying to
expand upon my last reply.


You didn't sound like you were
complaining at all. I can't fathom
having so many food allergies. You
must have to be very cautious around
food and make certain the lables are
much digested as the contents. I
can really understand your
frustration.


(I might need to edit, in the
event I'm missing anything. thank
you for your patience. )

I quit soy over a year ago. I see
it as a shady food. Based on things
I've read. Any food they boost as a
health champion amongst foods, I am
seriously leery of. Peanuts are great.
Awesome you can have them!

Kale is somethingI once had routinely
as well but learned there'sa serious
negativeside to it as well. As far as
salads are concerned, mine are Spinach
and red/green cabbage.
I love sprouts too but rarely see them
around anymore. Maybe like you, lots
of people are reactive to them.


Do you fry or boil apples? I'm
better with soft or wet produce.
Mushy. My intestinal tract refuses
to digest uncooked or under cooked
veggies. I have to bake veggies with
a lot of water to soften it. My
troubles might not be blood type
related though. I have a hysterectomy
a few years ago. Ever since my
digestion is a big slug.

Have you scrapped some items forever or
do you try out different brands and/or
wait awhile?

If I peel then cook well (in water), somehow the heat-process makes them okay when cooked-through? Never fried one before.

This is mine.

The first 30years of my life I had them in my diet. My health was never good back then but they were not the culprit.
I relocated and had less and less corn. Practically none for more than 5 years. Mister is a choosy eater and he was the cook in the house.
When he was out of town, I bought plenty of corns and made corn fritters spiced with turmeric, chilli and lemon leaves, my home town's style. I had only corn fritters for dinner. My head spinned and I felt so sick in less than 10minutes. The next day I tried the same meal. The same sickness.
A couple of days later I had corn again as a side dish. With no spices. Again it happened.

So...no more corn for me in this life.


Rheanna,

Although I'm not type O, I am
intolerantof corn too yet believe
this past cpl yeats I was severly
addicted. Popcorn was my huge go to.
My body hated it -yet my craving for it
was off the hook.

Your mister sounds like he is
good for you! Turmeric is healthy
though, nice season choice.

There are over-the-counter brand names that advertise they put caffeine in it.

So yes, it IS good for that.


Maybe caffeineis the secret to all
meds. They use it and we obviously
need it. There could be more to
it than we know.

I've gotten to that place where

5-7hours but my body won't
tolerate anything and even after
7hours, still digesting.
I understand your friend and
his veggies. Life on planet Earth
has gotten challenging.

Sorry to hear of your surgery and that your system isn't back to par yet. Give it some time. Don't give up... You might discover years from now that the body recovered itself.

Uncooked veggies (like lettuce) used to feel like razor blades in my stomach and gut. I was started on taking the purple acid-reducer pill (when what I had been taking for decades seemed not so effective). Been on the purple-pill for maybe 3 years now, and I think this might have healed the 'razor blade' feelings I used to get?

I'm BACK being able to eat salads WITHOUT discomfort once again. Yay! You have no idea how good I feel about that problem being solved. I sorely MISSED fresh salads and greens.

My Kale Nightmare-mishap???
Could have been from my having "too much" of a tasty-Good thing! Maybe a SMALL tinier side-portion would have been better than half the smaller mixing bowl?? Oh yeah. I was a ~piglette!! It was like I couldn't stop as it was sooo good!

AND, I thought to myself, How could eating too many Veggies hurt ya? ... I found out!!! Gave me peperoni-pizza type NIGHTMARE imagery as I tried to fall asleep ... NEVER. Again.!! *roll*

*Temperance and Moderation* ....
for a reason, hahahha!!

I said all that to encourage you NOT to give up hope that your diet might remain limited for ever?

Your veggie tolerance might make a comeback?? Allow your body the recovery time it needs. Maybe soon, you might test to se if you are able to eat "just a little" portion of it, every few weeks?
Keep The Faith!

How old'ish are you now?
~50?

I had some body problems disappear after I passed Chiron Return, plus a year. Really, my body came back into shape (after 40s) and I felt really good through my 50s (after 51-52). It was pleasing and surprising... like getting a new body-leased to you in life.

Up until just a few months ago, I felt peppy and generally fit.
I also in NO way looked my age. Still very agile. .....

I think right now, I'm just sorta weary? (The place where I live hasn't really been conducive for my health.) Now, perhaps it has begun to affect the way I look at things? .... This has lasted just WAY too long.

But then again, I must 'stop' that kind of thinking because it WON'T serve me to think that there is 'no end nor solution' to this in sight for me.

(I think TOO, that many people are feeling the weight and whiplash from politics going on right now... especially those who are retiring or nearing their retiring years? ... It's like ALL that 'living' and ALL that 'work' ??? wasted and down the tubes, with the draconic measures of this administration, (and certainly, our State HAS been draconic... ahead of the nation-- resources to get help is extremely thin and targeted ONLY to a privileged few minorities).
.. I hope there are enough Humanitarians in government, with the Power to stop this shadowy death-march and painful absurd insanity?

As long as I still think and Believe there's a Way OUT for me?... and that I will be Safe and Taken Care of and surrounded by a Loving tribe of People surrounding my Life, then THAT allows ROOM for Possibility to Manifest and ENTER my Life's real experience.

If I were to give up now.... ? Well, I'll never know whether 'hanging on' for "just" a little tiny further, JUST a little bit longer, would have seen me turn a Beautiful Corner in my life. Like the blackness of the eclipse Totality recently, to Suddenly Brighten like something I've NEVER seen EVER before?.....

Stay in Hope. It's better for your Health! We can help each other. Encourage each other. We lift each other UP.


Mirage,
I understand you on moderation. Sadly I
even abused veggies before because they
were like free calories but I got a big
boomerang.

Wow, razor blades. Now I am really
feeling bad you went through that. Not
good but I'm happy that is in your
past and not present. I hope you're
much better anyway.

I'm headed for 48. It's been rough
this past two years. I've wrestled
with addiction to food and food
intolerance these past 2years.

As far as political world, honestly
I am not one who follows it. Long
ago I did but I'm odd in my thinking
and believe 'all the world's a stage'.
That doesn't mean I don'tbelieve bad
things are happening as results of
what we 'see as politics'. I feel this
world could be beautiful but there
are forces that feed on making discord.
That makes me terribly sad.
Our world, my family and mine, has
been pretty bumpy, as I mentionedtoo,
the costs. Improvements is hopefully
coming around this next year or sooner.
I try to keep my mind busy. It usually
helps,considering I'm mostly Air. lol
I'm sorry these things are getting
you down. big ((Hugs)) You are too
wonderful for that. As I saidbefore,
Mirage,you're a wonderful being here
at LL.
