Our son called from college. He and his roommate have been talking about the Blood Type Diet, and his roommate is very interested. He is a Type B. Our son asked if I could send a Type B food list. He knows about TYPEbase4 on the website, but said that looking up every food one at a time was taking too long for someone new.
I sat down with the Blood Type Encyclopedia and started listing common foods that college students eat. It is highly unlikely that these college guys are going to eat escarole, chub, or amaranth.
At first I was just typing beneficial, neutral or avoid for Type B. I decided to add another column for Type O. I thought it might help them to see where they are alike and where they are different. At the bottom of the list I added some basic Type B characteristics.
The roommate is already celebrating that he can drink milk, but is let down to learn that chicken is an avoid. It will be interesting to see how he responds to the whole list, and how he identifies with the characteristics.
Next year there will be four guys sharing an apartment. I'm guessing that one of them will be an A. That should keep things interesting in the kitchen.
