It is becoming a very familiar response that the more times I explain how bad wheat is to people that the next question is: "What about whole wheat or white bread"
The general public been desensitized about the food they eat.
I guess I'm going to have to retool my "wheat speech" to include the words bread, flour, pasta and noodles.

When dairy is broken down by our digestive systems, it turns into lactose and galactose.
Blood type B's are the only ones to have galactose as the sugar representing their blood type. That means that all O's, A's and AB's would most likely be "galactose (lactose) intolerant."
If you are a non-secretor and you do not express your blood type in your gut, does that minimize your reaction to dairy?
If you then start taking blood type specific probiotics does that mean you could increase your chances to react to dairy?
Secretors of non galactose carrying blood types (O and A) would then seem to be the highest percentage of "galactose (lactose) intolerant" people.
Thanks Eric, your video has given me several ideas to expand upon!
It has occurred to me that we non secretors who use a blood type specific Probiotics are forcing our guts to express blood type.
It's kind of like having the free version (lite) of software that doesn't have all of the features, but is good enough to get you by. Then you start taking blood type specific Probiotics and introduce all of the missing "software" to now have the full version of your blood type (in your gut.)
You could look at it a different way and say if being a non-secretor is the "full version" and we add blood type to minimize the effects of being a nonnie...we become less nonnie-like.
Are we now Diet Nonnies or Nonnie "lite"
I’ve known for a long time that when I go to purchase shoes I always try the left shoe first to ensure both shoes will fit. Since I switched to (New Balance) brand shoes many years ago, I can get the 4E wide and pretty much eliminate over sizing my right foot shoe to accommodate my left.
Well as it turns out I decided to get a different type of “everyday” shoe that was a little more stylish and a lot less tennis shoe like. This created a very time consuming process. I tried a size 12 for a week and a half but my feet did not like it even with custom fit orthotics.
So I took the shoes back and after about an hour of trying to find the right combination of sizes - here’s what I came up with. With this particular shoe I needed a size 11 for the left foot and a 10 ½ for the right - just make BOTH feet happy. Since I knew the store would not let me mix and match the sizes I then had to try an entirely different shoe. As it turns out the very first pair of size 11’s I tried, both feet were now happy. The left is a little looser than I would like but as long as it’s not causing any discomfort, I’m not going to complain.
Since we still live in a world where one size fits all, I thought it would be appropriate to tell you the above mentioned story. Since I’m a Type O you could replace the size 12 shoes to a (plant based diet). Despite my best intentions, it just was not going to work in the long run. You then could relate the struggle to find the right combination of the “one size fits all” shoes to trying other diets like a high protein diet or a high carbohydrate diet – close, but not realistic. In the end you can then surmise that switching to an entirely new type of shoe to finding and following Eat Right for Your Type.
Until Dr. D’Adamo comes up with something better than Eat Right for Your Type, The GenoType Diet and SWAMI, the world is just going to have to get used the fact that we are truly individual people who can share a way of life called Eat Right for Your Type.
We are going through the stages of fetal development in class and the pathologies that can arise at certain stages. Some problems are genetic, but most are environmental - so to speak. Women that have been on birth control for a long time are most susceptible to hormonal problems. Women who smoke, drink, use medications or illegal drugs cause all kinds of developmental problems. Unhealthy women as far as nutrition also play a huge role in problems getting pregnant and producing healthy offspring.
Study after study shows that folic acid, vitamin B2, B6, B12, vitamin C, magnesium and zinc are very important for women to take when they are on birth control pills.
Women with decreased liver function do not convert estrogen to a less potent form witch leads to increased estrogen in the body.
Side effects of excess estrogen include:
Low Sex Drive – life long decrease
High Blood Pressure
Urinary Tract Infections
Sterility / Infertility
Low Back Pain
This of course begs the question of should you Eat Right for Your Type.
If your liver is too busy detoxing the food you eat let alone everthing else you come in contact with, what chance do you think a developing fetus has?
So the short answer to BTD and Embryology is - Yes.
I was talking to a fellow student of mine and we eventually got around to Eat Right for Your Type! Not only had he heard of it, he was in the process of reading “The GenoType Diet.” At first I thought this was going to turn into an easy conversation. As it turns out, he was having a hard time figuring out where he fit as far as his GenoType and what to do about it and why. Granted, he hadn’t done any of the strength testing or Biometric measurements to find out his GenoType but I came away with the impression he really didn’t understand what he was reading. As busy as us first trimester students are, he probably won’t be putting the Genotype Diet book on his to do list any time soon because of the confusion.
I’ve written about this before and I’m saying it again. There needs to be an “Eat Right for Your Type” preface in the beginning of the GenoType Diet book. This would enable new people who have no background with any of Dr. D’Adamo’s work to get a much needed prep course and give them a solid foundation to work from.
I’m just sayin’.
Wheat mimics insulin. Type I Diabetes means your body produces little to no insulin. Don’t we want the insulin receptors held open by the binding power of the wheat lectin to allow the absorption of glucose? (Just an extrapolation, the other effects of wheat are probably not worth it.)
