We're all indeed individuals. However, bear in mind: it's easy to spot a personal avoid on the Beneficial or Neutral lists if problematic symptoms show themselves. On the other hand, it's impossible to tell if a listed Avoid is actually OK for you, because so many of them give no immediate signals of damage. Peter did specific testing in this regard, to create the "red flags" and Tier II avoids listed for each type in Live Right 4 Your Type
. The instructions on how to interpret this information is here!

Hello, J! About choosing among avoids, please see the answer to Top's question, above ~ and a column I wrote a while back, linked here! I would add that at most parties, you'd be welcome to bring a dish or a snack that's OK for you. And I promise, we won't put you on a mailing list. Thanks for your Q!
I saw on the news where a new study shows eating right for your blood type can help you lose weight. Like the lady they showed on the study I have also tried every diet their is but I still can not lose weight and kept it off.I have gainned 50lbs in 3 years and I can not get it off...
Tina, it has worked for thousands of people. The latest success rate is around 85-90%, far higher than any other weight loss plan. Your goal would be to start out slowly and work toward 100% "beneficial" foods. As your weight normalizes, your health will bloom as well. Give it a good go, and let me know how you're doing!
I have the book- cookbok for your type. I have the book living for your type. I am unclear and can not find in either, where
How nice to hear from another farm girl!! :-) There is a listing for "popcorn" on page 263 of Live Right 4 Your Type ~ between "millet" and "rice." It's an avoid, I'm sorry to say. All varieties of corn contain the lectin that harms type Bs. As a popcorn substitute, try some puffed rice heated in a heavy pan with a touch of butter and sea salt ~ very tasty, and a satisfyingly popcorn-like crunch!
I am a Type B vegetarian. I participate in weight training and need to increase my protein. What about
They're fine for your type, Kim. In Live Right 4 Your Type's food lists, whey is graded Neutral for secretors, and Beneficial for nonsecretors. Now, make me happy by using only "organic" whey ~~ Note: "organic" is a shorthand term, widely used, which in this case refers to whey from milk from cows not treated with hormones or antibiotics and fed only certified-organic or verifiably-organic feed (no pesticides). ... and 'All That' is why I use the shorthand term, "organic." :-) Hopefully you'll even be able to find whey powder produced from ranged (sometimes called "free-range," in other words, not barn-restricted, cows) -- and best of all, even 100% grassfed cows. It's worth doing an Internet search for the best possible products you can put in your body, and talking to your local supp shoppe/organic grocer if you find a great product they don't carry. :-D
I am a type B and have been told (via my endocrinologist) that I have positive antibodies for
With your immune system in a hyperstimulated mode, the first strategy is to remove all avoid foods from your diet, and to use the type B stress-relief techniques in Live Right 4 Your Type to signal the endocrine system to stand down from "red alert," and take you back to heal/repair mode from the current condition of constant fight-or-flight. Rather than bladderwrack, try the following from the BTD Complete Blood Type Encyclopedia: watermelon seed, 300 mg: 1-2 capsules twice per day -- ginger root, 500 mg: 1-2 capsules with meals -- and fenugreek, 500 mg defatted seeds: 1-2 capsules, twice daily -- Deflect-B, two capsules with meals. Since you've just started the diet, you'll be happy to know there are many improvements to look forward to! It's great you're not on medication ~ it's highly likely now that you'll never need it. Keep with your beneficial exercise and foods, and start a good stress-relief program, and keep me posted!!
