Some quick and varied Q&A:
Hi Heidi... Nice to "see" you again. Now that the new meal replacement bars are here...is there any way of figuring out servings of what food type are in them?? I'm thinking of portion control as prescribed in LRFYT. (grains, dairy, etc.) Linda
The bars carry that information on the label, and we'll soon post it in the ABO Bar store pages for reference before buying. They were designed with blood-group protein/carb/fat proportions in mind, so I think you'll be pleased!
I am a Type A non-secretor. In ERFYT I noticed that Beta-carotene was listed as an AVOID for Type A. In the 2002 product catalog of The Blood Type Store I find Beta-carotene included in supplements formulated for Type A. Could not find Beta-carotene in the errata page or the database. Please advise re: Beta-carotene and Type A. Thank you. Richard
Some recommendations have changed since 1996, and can be found in detail in the >Encyclopedia.
I would like to point out a discrepancy involving the book "Eat Right for your Blood Type" and the booklet "Eat Right:Type AB". In the book the list of foods says coffee is "beneficial" but the booklet puts coffee in the "avoid" list. Please help! I dont know whether to drink coffee anymore... Also, the book Live Right for Your Blood Type puts pineapple in "beneficial" at one page (for blood type A and in another column pineapple is listed as "neutral". I hope you can help to clarify these queries. Thank you. -alina
Pineapple has two listings: one for the whole fruit, one for the juice. The coffee status is an update ~ a refinement to the original findings. It's still a rather new science, but we expect more additions than changes from here on in. Thanks for your patience!
I am Type A and am confused as to being told on one hand - during dtox followed by candida cleanse - I was totally not to eat peanut butter - now the cleanses are finished (successfully) I am on Type A plan and peanut butter is supposedly highly beneficial - please can you clarify which this is for me as I am trying to follow this plan to the letter. Is it because of the preservatives they put in peanut butter and if so, would organic, no preservative peanut butter exist. Thank you. Hilary
I can confirm that peanuts are beneficial for type A. Organic peanut butter can be found in health food stores nationwide ~ Marantha is one of many well-known brands. Talk to the manager of your local shop!
I heard that the good bacterias in yogurt is good for you. I'm a type O. Can I have soy yogurt? It's not a dairy product. Thanks. Carol
Sure ~ just remember to check the ingredients of anything you buy, to guard against avoids and make sure it really is what it says it is. Bear in mind that if you are a nonsecretor, soy is an avoid.
I have read two of the eat right books, and cannot find if psyllium fiber is an avoid or neutral for group O. Thanks, S.
Psyllium isn't recommended for Os. Instead, get some flaxseed (brown or gold) and grind a tablespoon or two at a time in an electric coffee grinder. Whole flaxseed keeps a LONG time in the fridge.
