I was lying in bed the other night and was almost asleep when I had the sudden urge to figure out my orientation in the house. After I came out of the grogginess and figured it out, I went back in time to the other two houses I’ve lived in over the last 20 years I was a little surprised. When I’m at home, I have always slept with my feet facing either North or South. I already knew I always slept nearest to the bedroom door so to have this new revelation was another confirmation that: You might be a nonnie if...
If you think you might be a nonnie there is a thread dedicated to us. So if you haven’t read any of it yet, here’s the link:
(Think of the Oscar Mayer jingle and the words almost fit.)
I’m a nonnie and my first name, it’s: Th o-m-a-s
I’m a nonnie and my second name is: Mar t-e-n-s
Oh, I love to Eat Right for My Type
And if you ask me why I’ll say.....
Dr. D’Adamo has a way....
With Blood Types O, B, AB, and Type A
It has been my observation that a lot of the new people being introduced to Eating Right for their Type have a disproportionate
number of “Why” questions. I believe that the GenoType book and Swami Software do not tell a good enough story of why foods are to be avoided and provide “real life” examples how those nasty Lectins do what they do.
Those of us who grew up on Eat Right for Your Type and Live Right for Your Type - already had a good background for the afore mentioned GenoType and Swami diets.
I remember reading the Eat Right book and seeing myself as being the person described in the book. I really understood “why” I needed to change. It wasn’t the scary prospect of getting cancer, heart disease or many of the other more serious diseases. It was understanding what lectins were, the symptoms they created, the simple mechanics of lectins and what to expect once you eliminated them.
I get the feeling that many new people are overwhelmed with the GenoType and Swami diets because of the implied seriousness the newer versions that the Blood Type Diet present.
If you are new and feel overwhelmed or just don’t “get it” yet, read the book that started it all: Eat Right 4 Your Type.
What supplements are you supposed to take and which are the most important?
This can be a tough choice if you have many health issues to address or money is a concern.
Based upon my personal experience and the recommendations made by Dr. D’Adamo in his health protocols; I would have to say that the Blood Type specific Probiotics are it.
The core part of your immune system comes from your lower digestive system or your “gut.” All of that bacterium is in a somewhat delicate balance and can easily be disrupted by eating the wrong foods or taking antibiotics when you get sick.
If you are getting sick often; having problems with diaherria or even something more serious like battling cancer; the Blood Type specific Probiotics are the difference makers! If you were undecided before; you now have a solid choice.
