Well………………I am going to make a confession (breath deep). This is a difficult moment for me. Some of you know my secret already, some of you (who share a common stress) will feel kinship.
I, Laura Petrolino, non-secreting extraordinary, grain hating, starch shunning, protein praising type A, I secrete.
That’s right, (I’m not changing my shield so leave me alone about it) when I took my test many months ago it showed I was a secretor. I have been in denial since then and tested it out many times with the different foods. I ordered another test and have had it for about two weeks, I just can’t do it, I don’t want to. I’m sort of happy in my little non-secreting secretor in-between. I figure these are the possibilities
a) the test was wrong since I’m not a skillful spitter*
b) I’m a secretor who doesn’t secrete well, perhaps my secreting mechanism has been screwed up by illness
After doing much self experimentation I really do seem to be right in-between. I act like a secretor as far as some things go and a non-secretor with other things.
This is all very confusing, but brings up an interesting question, why so many secretors do better with a non-secretor diet? I think a lot of this might have to do with my choice b above. We all know that food values change based on different diseases. My very unscientific hypothesis is that our individual circumstances, diseases, ect, also change food values-hence why everyone is so different and individuality is so important in this diet. I also think that pretty much everyone does better with less grains and starches and more protein- just what the non-secretor diet ordered.
I’ll take my test eventually (when I can gather enough spit) but until then I’ll live in the space between.
*Spitter must not be in the Microsoft dictionary, obviously Microsoft does not feel it is necessary to define: someone who spits, and make sure it is spelled correctly. Thus, I’m left not knowing if spitter is spelled with one or two t’s
Microsoft does feel it necessary for their name to be automatically capitalized when I type it, Microsoft, Microsoft, Microsoft………..I can’t get in lower case………….their watching me
