While you may think you could never give up that favorite food, wheat for O's, chicken for B's, red meat for A's, etc. Ask yourself this, Can I give it up for a week or two? I think anyone can give up a favorite food for a week or two. Then, after that, go ahead, taste it again. See if you still love it, or if it's just not worth eating. In my case anyway, with wheat, a week or two was all it took. Wheat was doing bad things to me, it made me irritable, tired, achy, depressed, gave me stomachaches of all varieties, contributed to chronic inflammation problems, I could go on..
While the "authorities" chant that there are no bad foods, only bad diets, I'd have to agree with Dr. D'Adamo, there there are bad fits between a person's biochemistry and certain foods. Of course, I think there are some bad foods too. I'm exercising my freedom of speech, There Are Bad Foods! Am I famous enough to get a veggie libel suit against me? no, but I won't name too many particulars just in case :-) (Funny that they call it veggie libel, when most criticisms aren't directed at real veggies.)
I'm still having some pangs for dairy, I always loved the stuff. But every day without it, is a day further from the memory, or a day closer to cheating and finding out, as I always do, that Blood Type Theory really has something to it, it really applies to me. It isn't a diet that works for some, but not me, or that works for me until I cheat a few times. It works for me, myself, and the benefits don't suddenly evaporate when I get off track.
Good diet day today, free-range meatloaf any-O-ne? Now I'm picturing little squares of meatloaf growing in a field of tall grass, it must be time to get some rest. It was a very happy meatloaf...
