Geminisue, thank you so much for the tip.  I love dark chocolate and it's neutral for As.  I'm also looking forward to baking some meringues: I enjoy them very much.

Has anyone got a good/easy recipe for meringues?  I did try making them, oh, quite a long time ago, but it was a bit of a disaster!

BTW, just to get things clear in my head, when trying to keep carbs and proteins separated I guess I should have meringues with a protein base meal, right?

Would chocolate go with either type of meal?

Thanks!!

Never mind that: I just found a recipe in the Blood Type Diet Recipes:

http://www.dadamo.com/typebase4/recipedepictor.cgi?108

However it says that they are for types B and O.    I thought egg whites were neutral for As, too.

Any thoughts about that?

Thanks again

Itita,
It helps me to have something that has a sweet flavor with each meal.  In fact, I like to have as many flavors as possible in each meal:  salty, sweet, bitter, pungent.

For sweet, I include things like carrots, sweet potatoes, baked squashes, beneficial berries, etc.  It keeps me from feeling deprived, and keeps the cravings down.  I also think it's important to eat enough beneficial fats, such as ghee and olive oil, and nuts, fatty fish, etc.  These are all comfort foods since they help us feel satisfied.



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.

Victoria,

Yes, that makes a lot of sense.  Quite often I have some nuts at the end of a meal to give me that sense of satisfaction, especially if I've eaten a protein based meal.  I do eat lots of carrots and parsnips, but not at every meal.  So on the day I have spinach with tofu and seeds, or fish with veggies which are not particularly sweet I get those cravings...I find that even having a rye cracker at the end of such a meal helps the cravings, but I'm concerned about making it tough for my stomach to digest the meal: after all I suffer from bloating quite a lot  

Anyway, I'll keep in mind all the advice and tips that I got and see how my body reacts: there's no doubt that since I started the BTD things have got better and it's still early days!

taken from:  FAQs

http://www.dadamo.com/faq/smartfaq.cgi?answer=988881415&id=988813483

basically what everyone said here  


Quoted from FAQs
Are you an advocate of "food combining"?

I am aware that many practitioners use food combining as part of their dietary recommendations. I do not, simply because the blood type diets do specifically what food combining attempts to do non-specifically.

Proponents of food combining claim that correct food combinations are important for proper digestion, utilization, and assimilation of the nutrients our body needs to sustain life. Different foods require different digestive enzymes to aid in the digestive process - some acid, some alkaline. When acid and alkaline foods come in contact, they neutralize each other and retard digestion. If the food we eat is not properly digested, it will pass through the intestinal tract without being completely broken down, getting stuck between the crevices located in the intestinal track - thereby causing the toxic wastes to ferment and putrefy.

Critics claim that there's no evidence to support such contentions. Nearly all foods are themselves combinations. If you eat beans, for example, you're getting carbohydrates (sugars and starches), protein and fiber, among other things. Bread combines protein, carbohydrates, a little fat and many other things. A simple dish like macaroni and cheese, a peanut butter sandwich, or oatmeal with milk contains sugars, starches, protein and fat. Our digestive system handles food combinations very efficiently. The process begins in the mouth as we chew food and saliva acts upon it, beginning the breakdown of starches into sugars. Other enzymes come into play along the line, resulting in almost complete digestion and absorption of nutrients, no matter how they are combined.

Recently I started to separate carbs and proteins, but what about fats? I like to add olive oil in my vegetables and eat it with proteins. Is it ok?

I read through the FAQ's recently - and it answered my question completely - hope it does for you too

I've found this text in my copy of Eat right 4 your type under common questions (Apendix B of the book):
quote
    IS FOOD COMBINING HELPFUL ON THE BLOOD TYPE DIET?

    Some diet plans recommend food combining, which involves eating certain food groups in combination for better digestion. Many of these books are full of bunk and hokum, with a lot of unnecessary rules and regulations. Perhaps the only real food-combining rule is to avoid eating animal proteins, such as meats, with large amounts of starches, such as breads and potatoes. This is important because animal products are digested in the stomach in a high-acid environment, while starches are digested in the intestines in a high-alkaline environment. When these foods are combined, the body alternately nibbles at the protein, then the starch, then back to the protein, then back to the starch; not a very efficient method. By keeping these food groups separated, the stomach can concentrate its full functions on the job at hand. Substitute low-starch, high-fibre vegetable side dishes, such as greens. Protein-starch avoidance doesn't apply to tofu and other vegetable proteins, which are essentially predigested.

I have no problems when I have sweet potatos or other vegetable starch with my animal protein.

When I combine grains with animal protein I feel my stomach distended and I tend to feel sleepy and, if I have a little extra of grains I also feel drained after half hour. If the amount of grain is small then I do fine.

Fruit after a meal gives me flatulence if i have had grains with animal protein.

andrej,
fats are neutral in food combining.
add those to either starch or protein.
