Frizz,

Allow me to re-phrase your self-description, in more objectively true form:

You are a obligate meat-eater who is bound and determined to be a vegetarian, damn the torpedoes.

I was a vegetarian for about 4-5 years in the 90s-- from about '91 to '96-- and while I can say I was not totally unhealthy, I was not really healthy either, and have been felt better since adding animal foods back to my diet.  I found the blood type diet in 2000 and knew immediately that it was true but did not follow it at a level of what we here call "compliance" till about the last year.  I did not eat red meat regularly, ate too much oatmeal, refused to exercise, etc.  At the end of last year I noticed my joints hurt when I got up (I felt old at 35!!) and was getting a layer of fat around my stomach and thighs that would not go away.  Also, I had no energy, was depressed, and often considered suicide.

So I decided I'd add some red meat and got a package of buffalo.  Then I joined a gym and started going several days a week.  Now a year later I am pretty conservative on the meat servings-- 2-3 a week rather than 6 like Dr. D says-- and feel like a totally diferent person.  I have TONS of energy, am able to work long hours and exercise, and finally really feel "involved" with life in a way that I never did before.  My vegetarian period though mellow and enriching in some ways now seems frankly sad and I would never go back to that way of life.  I was even macrobiotic.  Sure meat is too yang.  So I have a lot of vegetables and fruits in my diet to balance it.  And true to from I learned from the macro viewpoint, dairy (especially for type Os, not for other blood types, like B) is the worst and I have benefitted from cutting dairy out entirely.  It has made such a difference in how I look and feel.

What I would recommend to you is that you start small with a couple of servings of organic beef a week and choose the other foods on the diet that work for you, making sure to avoid dairy and wheat.  Your digestive problems will clear up quickly.  I was constipated for years before switching to this diet.  It is mind boggling to me now that I had that problem.

That's a great report, Virgo, and very informative.  Thank you for sharing.  

You are among many ex-vegetarians/macrobiotics, not to mention ex-vegans, starchetarians and anything else you might think of.  It's been a process of getting to know our bodies in a different way, eating what we need for our blood types!  



Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are.
Let me not pass you by in quest
of some rare and perfect tomorrow.
