Seeing as how the rain was persisting down outside I thought that yesterday we’d have a bit of an insight into a two blood type family. Fortunately there is only Sue & I to consider and it must multiply the difficulty enormously where you have three or worse all four blood types in one household. Throw in the secretor status as well and I don’t know how you manage.
I am a Type A (assumed Secretor) and Sue is a Type AB (assumed secretor). I had already started the BTD and we purchased a home typing kit to check Sue’s type. It came out or so we thought as Type A. A little later she had a blood test for something and got herself typed and came back AB. When we looked back at her original card you could see the slight difference leaning towards an AB. Maybe secretly we wanted her to be Type A for convenience. I know she said if she came back Type O there was no way she was eating meat.
The first thing we did was print out a combined A & AB food list from one of those illegal web sites that were circulating Dr D’s food lists early in 2000. They are no longer allowed to do this because of copyright restrictions.
We sat down using LR4YT and the web site Type base and highlighted all the foods that were beneficial for us both in green and all the foods that were beneficial for one of us and neutral for the other in yellow.
This list still forms the basis of our regular diet today. You could do the same thing yourself using the books, type base and your favourite spreadsheet software.
Bearing in mind that I’m the A and Sue is the AB listed this is an average non work days food with its status relative to us..
There looks like a lot of food but wherever possible we have broken the meal down into all its component forms.
