I am an AB blood type. Can I use flax seed meal? Alexandra
Sure! Best way to get flax meal is to buy the seeds and use a coffee or spice grinder to prepare small amounts of meal when you plan to eat it. The oil in the seeds goes rancid quickly, so this method is better than purchasing the meal pre-ground. Keeping your flax seeds, meal or oil in the fridge greatly extends their "fresh-life."
I belong to the B blood group and would like to lose some weight on the blood group diet. I don't understand why Tofu is to be avoided under blood group B and yet soya flour is acceptable. Would eating Tofu deter weight lose? Btw, Tofu is one of my favourite food - I eat Tofu 3 - 4 times a week. Must I totally avoid Tofu in order to lose weight? Edith
For weight loss, try to eat 100% beneficial foods and engage in B-type exercise and stress-relief practices. Tofu will only retard your progress and lead to discouraging results down the line.
If it will ease your pain a bit, remember that virtually all of us have bade fare-thee-well to at least one favorite food. I commiserate with you in the tofu and tempeh regard (love 'em both). I've lost chickpeas (hummus with sweet peppers! *sigh!*) buckwheat pancakes with maple syrup! oatmeal on cold mornings! fresh roasted sweet corn, corn bread with pancetta and hot peppers, gourmet purple popping corn! OH, don't get me started on the vasty wealth of brilliant cheeses from France and Ireland... and curried cabbage... brussels sprouts in quiche, potatoes in every form imaginable... chestnuts in December, sunflower seeds in July, fried plaintains with Haitian goat stew. Honeydew, just as it is. Apples cool in the breeze, blackberries warm from the bush. STRAWBERRIES. Other than that, I have no complaints. ~~;-D When you see the weight dropping and little surprise healthy "side-effects" showing up, your longing for tofu will fade as well. Hang in there, dear!
I live in Turkey-Istanbul. I am Blood A Rh+ and 33 years old female. I have still skin problem too much (acne)and I have gastrit problem and helico bacter. My doctor couldn't do anything about my problems. I would like to learn which supplement that I have to add my diet. Thank you very much for your helps and best regards, Ipek
Ipek, try to cut down on grains. See if you can find fish to replace any meat or fowl you eat. Fill up on as many green vegetables as you can get locally. Follow the A diet in Eat Right 4 Your Type and include yoga or meditation every day. For your skin, use Witch Hazel on it. Can you obtain the following: burdock tea, Holy Basil in capsules, Pantethine (not pantothenic acid), and vitamin A? Five or ten drops of Gentian tincture in warm water before meals will help with your stomach distress, and Linden tea and Asian (Panax) Ginseng can be added to get rid of the H. pylori infection. Two weeks should see a great improvement. Write back if you have any trouble recognizing these names.
