|« How Belinda Rupert marveled over marvelous ER4YT and found happiness again...||Taking charge of your health: The story of Donna Haimes »|
BR: Introduce yourself!
CR: My name is Carl Rossetti and I live in Hawaii with my wife and our cat Sneakers.
BR: Can you give us a bit of insight into why you started the blood type diet?
CR: I’ve always been interested in staying healthy. So I always took plenty of vitamins and minerals to make up for what they say food no longer has in it, because of our depleted soils. I’ve always worked out since high school and I enjoy being fit. I’m always looking for better ways to stay healthy, especially out side of orthodox medicine.
BR: Are there any diseases that tend to run in your family?
CR: None that I know of.
BR: How did you find out about the blood type diet? Was it through friends, colleagues, healthpractioner, or other?
CR: I was working as a photographer in a restaurant here in Hawaii and I got to talking to the hostess at this place. She started to go on about this new diet, about eating foods for your blood type. Boy did I think that was crazy or what. But I did go get the book and started to read it. That’s when I was convinced it was the right thing to do.
BR: How did you get started? Was it gradually, or did you opt for the cold-turkey-version?
CR: I opted for the cold turkey approach.
BR: How long did it take to notice change in your body (mentally and physically!)
CR: It made a change the first two weeks.
BR: What kind of changes did you experience?
CR: I had a 10 lb. weight loss and all my clothes got baggy on me.
BR: Was it easy to get started? Or difficult? What was your main purpose to get started? Health problems like losing weight, or what?
CR: It was easy to get started, because my favourite foods are berries and being an “A Secretor” I can eat lots of them. I do miss eating red meat, I will not eat it any more.
I’ve never been over weight per say, but I weighed 170 at 5’7”. Now I weigh 150 at 5’7”. It feels way better.
BR: Your family, how did they react to your following the diet?
CR: My wife saw the change and started on the diet herself. Our cat didn’t seem to care much, he still ate what he wanted. J
BR: How many bloodtypes are there in your family? How do you manage?
CR: My wife is an “O Secretor” and I’m an “A Secretor” so there are plenty of veggies we can eat together in salads and stir fries. When we go out we just swap the things we can eat.
BR: Eating Right 4 Your Type easy or difficult when you are at work, at a restaurant?
CR: Easy at work, because I bring my own food. I hardly ever eat out anymore, which saves me money. Like I said when we go out, which we do a lot, we swap, but we also ask the restaurant if they can swap items. Most restaurants are ok with this and if they are not, then we don’t go back to that place.
On the road?: We eat what we find that is for our type’s.
Even if we have to go to a store and buy food to eat in our hotel rooms.
BR: Looking at your diet: what was easy to integrate into your basic diet, what still gives you problems?
CR: I used to slobber over having to watch my wife eat her fat juicy steak, but I’m ok now. I usually get salmon which is cheaper than steak most of the time. The biggest problem is the ingredients labels on most food items in the stores. They are pretty basic and some times we don’t know what the ingredients are, like natural flavours, or vegetable oil and things like that. Also foods that are not listed in the books or on the web page are difficult. Especially if it’s a food we like.
BR: Do you get support from your Medical Doctor?
Could you convince him/her of the positive impact of the blood type diet on your health?
CR: I haven’t been to a doctor in years, so I couldn’t comment on this.
BR: What kind of medication did you take for overcoming your health problems? And how is your medication-intake after having started the blood type diet?
CR: The only medication I ever take is muscle relaxers once in awhile (Advil or similar brands). I haven’t taken these since I’ve been on the diet, over two years now.
BR: The country, city, village you live in: Is it a problem or not to find the organic foods you need?
CR: So far it has not been a problem, Except berries here in Hawaii are very expensive even on sale. With the internet most things can be had these days or we show our health food store where to get them for us.
BR: Are there any other experiences you had following this way-of-life, you want to share with us?
CR: I have been trying to get my body to look like I workout. Muscles to show, especially my abs and before this diet that was always a problem. Maybe because I couldn’t workout as much as I wanted. But now being on this diet and not having to spend any more time working out. My wife and I can see where it seems like all my muscles are showing, because I lost the fat around the muscles. It’s been over two years and I’m still looking better than any other time in my life, even when I used to dance, which you know keeps you in top shape. And I have more energy than I have had in a long time. Thanks to Peter and all those who are assisting him. Like the Aladdin song, which by the way we had as our wedding song, “It’s a Whole New World”. We are getting younger by the minute.
BR: Carl, you told us your way into the Diet! Your wife being an O and you being an A: two diets easy to combine. It is the way your body responds in such a positive way (more energy, losing fat!) that gives a thrill!
Life becomes so much more pleasant to live…
A way of life that provides us with loads of energy and will inhibit diseases to launch on to our system….
You are so right Carl, there is a Whole New World out there….
Thank you so much for your Pacific Contribution!!
