Dear madam, I am a 28 year old woman from India (south india),my blood group is o+ and recently i got a copy of Dr.Dadamo's book Eat right 4 your type and i have started following the diet since last 4 days. Normally south indian dishes use a lot of coconut,for my blood type should i completely avoid coconut or can i use it sparingly. For breakfast normally we have rice preparations made from rice flour, i normally have 'Idli',i don't know if you've heared of it, it's made from soaking rice,urad dal (a sort of lentil )&a bit of fenugreek seeds,and make into a somewhat loose batter and steam the batter into small round shape idli's,can i have this for breakfast? Also my height is 5 feet 3 and weight -55 kilo , i don't want to lose weight. Since last 4-5 years my hair has started greying and it falls a lot, it started greying after i was hospitalised for a week (my toe got cut by a new foot wear and i went out in the rain and my leg got infected the next day,it was all swollen up and i got fever as well, in the hospital i took antibiotic injections and tablets and also i went through a lot of stress in my personal life some time back). Also i'm allergic to dust and in between i used to get cold, but now i don't get cold that is after changing our residence and avoiding all the clutter, but i have problem of spelgm when i wake up in the morning. I never used to eat beef or mutton,but just chicken & fish,now i'll include those in my diet. Awaiting eagerly for a reply from your side. sunita
Hello, sunita ~ and welcome!
I hope you are feeling recovered from your infection and allergies! It sounds as if you would benefit greatly from red meat and more green vegetables in your diet, to help fight infection and stimulate healthy hair growth.
Lentils and coconut are generally not recommended for Os. Nonsecretor Os can have lentils and coconut oil, but coconut is an avoid for nearly everyone. I feel rather shy discussing these things, since they are such common elements in your traditional cuisine. Dal is eaten with every main meal, no? And coconuts are a staple, for both their meat and milk. If it is possible to substitute other beans for the lentils in some dishes, and use less coconut & coconut milk, I think you will have less phlegm upon awakening. Exercise and adequate protein and fat (ghee) will help control your weight by developing muscle and supporting healthy connective tissue.
If you can tell me more about what kinds of food and herbs are available to you there, I'll try to give more specifics for you.
Again, I hope you are doing well ~ please write again! Thank you!
