Hello!

I am new on this thing. But I am hooked.

Hey, I didn't bought all those books. I have been frequenting the library, so I guess I cheated a little? Well anyway, it allowed me to read through both "Live right 4 your type" and "Eat right 4 your type", and still be able to pay my rent. Nice. Maybe I'll buy one of them later, I don't know.

But what I do know is that I have all these burning questions. Specific questions to maybe errors and misprinitings and questions about foods not listed. Is there anywhere I could post and pose these questions and be certain they will be both read and answered? As I said, they are quite specific, so I guess it would be easy for the skilled (the authors perhaps?) to answer them, and it would do good to all new readers and perhaps future reprints.



A big thank to the webeditors (two big thanks if someone answers this positively)

Welcome Lassie,

Browse around the site and become familiar with all the features here.  If you look at the top right of the page, you will see a link called "member center."  If you click on that link, it will take you to a page where you can pick an appropriate avatar, to represent your Blood Type Shield.  This comes in handy when others are trying to help you answer questions.  Also on that link you can create a special message under your shield, and a personal signature that will appear in all your posts.

Ask as many questions as you need.  We're all here to help each other succeed on this new way of living and eating.

ETA:  If you have a question, try posting it first in the ER forum.  If the topic is not relevant to that forum, one of the moderators will move it to the appropriate forum.

Many of the members here use the "Recent Threads" link, which will bring up a list of all the threads (new and old) that have had posts since the individual's last visit.  So, where ever you ask your questions, someone will answer them.

Hello!

Hello, and welcome to the BTD cybercommunity!!!
Quoted from Lasse
I am new on this thing. But I am hooked.

This is the best thing you could get hooked on!

As has already been pointed out, you can check the errata link for any corrections to the books. †I personally think one of the most important corrections to point out to anyone using LR4YT as their main source of BTD info is that the fruits and veggies recommended portions are supposed to say per DAY, not per WEEK, so that is a big difference--you can and should eat a lot more fruits and veggies than what is printed, so it is so good that the errata page on this site clears that up. †The diets for the various types are all customized and very different from each other, but one thing they all have in common is an emphasis on vegetables and fruits, so dig in! †LR4YT is a great book to buy because it really gets into the secretor/non-secretor refinements. †ER4YT is my fave, the classic, the one I always recommend to newbies to this day because it is SO clear and provides such a complete overview of the theory. †Even though it's food lists doesn't contain the secretor/non-secretor refinements and are some of the foods (only a few) have changed in status, it is still an essential classic for any BTDer. †So, what I recommend is, get both ER4YT (for your bedrock foundation, this will firmly ground you in BTD theory), LR4YT (for important and fascinating secretor/non-secretor refinements), AND use Typebase4 if you have any doubt about a food's current status.

Welcome again and I'm glad you are lovin' your A diet!!!

Oh wow. Impressive! This is a very lively Forum, I must say.

Well, now that I have recovered from the painful mistake by (Ms.?) KimonoCat, I am able to write a small comment on all them postings. lol. And yes I have my shield up now. And I am an A I learned that two weeks ago.
  In Denmark (apart from Faroese Islands and Greenland which is still a neglected part of our Kingdom. Iceland cleverly ran away some fifty years ago I believe ), we are almost 50-50 O's and A's. Perhaps the O's are descendants from the feroscious Vikings? Well, not many real Vikings here nowadays anyway lol.

I'll definitely check up on these erratas and see if some answers maybe hidden there for me. Then I'll return with all thats left unanswered. Thanks Lola and Peppermint.

Lasse,

Wilkommen!  Bienvenue!  Welcome.

What the blood type diet is, is nothing less than a massive paradigm shift of thinking about diet and human health in general.  In other words, it's going to change the way you think about everything.  

As such, it's going to be a lot of new information, but it will be information that explains much, much more than what you've typically been carrying around in your head as being true.  The thing that will clench the deal in your mind, in the long run, will be the undeniable results you get off this diet and approach to health.  I don't want to make any promises, but I myself have virtually no doubt that you will be astounded and changed forever for the better.

At some point, after you've gained a significant degree of success with the diet, I would strongly, strongly suggest that you take the "secretor test" that Dr. D'Adamo talks about in his books.  It's going to be hugely important to your health to know it, for the reasons that are listed in the following link:

http://www.dadamo.com/wiki/wiki.pl/Secretor_Status

That's it from me.  Once again, welcome.

Just a comment.

Thanks Ronagon and all.

Yes, the BT connection is just fascinating. And still its so simple and straight forward. I learned about it some weeks ago, and I am really busy with heaps of other things going on in my life at the moment, and I wanted to put that issue on standby for a while, but I just couldn't let it be! I had to read more and more and soak up some of that knowledge lol.    
    But still, I do not want to go to extremes with the BTD. Not yet at least. I have always been eating a quite varied menu and feel I have had a quit good feeling for what my body needed and what to eat and do and what not to, according to my situation in life. I have loved experimenting with new exotic ingredients. And never felt 'bad' about that. And I guess I am going to eat some amounts of socalled 'Avoids' too in the future, but not as a basis of my food of course.

I hope you guys agrees and also acknowledge the fact that we humans real are build and made to live in tough environments and cope with challenges or what we now call 'stress' quite well. After all thats what often develop and educate us as persons and humans. Seeking the odd or get aquainted with what we didn't knew already. Thats how we grow to a large extent in my view (and even in a scientific view too). So I don't believe (at the moment) eating some Avoids and stressing the system a bit, is going to kill og infect anybody. It could also be a bit healthy in fact. If we all just mixed with people with the same ideas as ours and same views or looks and habits, and never challeged ourselves, we would grow pretty limp. I am still not completely convinced, that it is any different with food and blood type. I have to study more on that at least. But in the midst of all this, its still nice to know where you come from or how your body is originally 'designed', so to speak.

Saying all that, I would definitely try out an extendend diet on "BT Super food" at some point! I think perhaps there is a whole and brand new world of energy, upgraded lifeforce and opportunity lying there, waiting. Perhaps I (and others of course) have been living on a 'false' and lower energy state in life, holding back the real potential? hehe..

Have fun, and be good. see you...

Yes, I feel those that follow the BTD right for their type have a huge advantage in all aspects of life!

For a person who is generally in good health, I agree with all of the above and I think you have a very healthy approach going into the diet.  You're going to do very well!!!

I recommend spending some time in the Media Center and in the Wiki.

Here's a wiki entry that, to me, says it all regarding lectins.  Scientists have known since 1945! that there were plants with blood type specificity.  They've known since around 1914 that there were plants that were species specific in regards to agglutinating  blood.

Who would want to eat something that agglutinates your blood?  Make it stick together.  Make the serum look like cotton candy.  To me, it doesn't take a brain surgeon to realize that's not something you want happening on a cellular level inside your bodu.

Dearest Lola
Why should Lasse read about dairy comsumption in Sweden ? he is danish

I really think Lasses aproach is both wise and sensibel IF he is healthy †and young.

I think that sometimes we get so absorbed in BTD †that we can almost scare beginners away with information about secretor- etc
"you have to make a clean cut etc...."" Only eat beneficials etc "" "look in the health books"

I think it is fine starting with baby steps.....

Please donīt misunderstand me:
I think it is helpful to give theese informations - BUT it can be OK just to start out with certain aspects of a theory.

HOWEVER if I was seriously sick I would appreciate ALL the information
so keep it coming
- just be aware that we are all individuals and we might make this BTD "road" in different speeds- some of us stop and take a break - and continue after a while- some never goes further than half the way !
 every step is fine !
