How did Carl Lewis manage to eat a vegan diet during competing as an athlete? I assume he is type O because he's a runner, which is a type O activity.  I am Type O and I prefer to not eat any meat or animal products at all. NOt only for ethical/moral reasons, but that it just doesn't feel so good anymore to eat meat.  I feel somehow heavy after eating animal products, as though I take in the energy and emotions of their previous life.  However, I do consume meat now because after trying a vegan diet I felt the effect on my nerve system, I suffered some nerve pains.  I wonder if the only thing really needed to supplement then is extra B12 and B vitamins?

Well you can´t assume that he is O- just because he is a runner- I know other crazy   AB´s who loves to run....
IF you are certain that you are O... you could be mistyped..you do need some animal products.
It sounds like you need to work with the mental part of eating meat, eggs etc.
I would say it would be Ok - but not ideal !! to be lacto( no milk and yoghurt- but ghee and some cheese)/ovo vegetarian but never vegan O type.
I guess the O´s will step in and tell you why it is so important to get animal products as an O (and a B btw) but my thought are :
Well since you live in India - I gues you ´ll get enough vitamin D from the sun- but vegans in other parts of the world wont.
True vitamin A (not betacarotene) is only found in animal products
The same goes for B 12 and q10
It can be hard to get enough protein from a vegan diet.

if you can find some grass fed beef (these cows are happier because they roam free to eat grass and hay)...less bad emotions for you to ingest

You cannot 'debunk' anything. It can only debunk itself.

Sadly, it is a dog-eat-dog world out there in the world of Pop-Diets, and
sometimes even vegan dogs eat other dogs.

Take the best of everything, leave the rest.

one of those nutrients missing from the vegan diet is the amino acid taurine.  It is auto-synthethized until age 13 but must come from flesh produce after this.  One of the major jobs of taurine is to bind zinc onto cell membrane walls,  This acts as the cell's reserve of zinc.  So, any products that the cell makes requiring zinc can be easily made.  Lack of taurine = lack of zinc + ... a lack of potassium + a lack of taurocholate (the primary way to digest vitamin K = calcium regulation) + THE primary membrane stabilizer + the best buffer for EMF fields + a chemical that is counter-agglutination ........

MoDon posted about copper toxicity.  One of the side-effects of this is the mental assertion of the superiority of the vegan diet.

I was reading an interesting article on javanese mysticism which explored the issue of what we take in when we eat. It said that when we eat vegetables we take in a certain type of energy, peaceful, connected to the earth, and when we take in animal food we take in the energies of passion and initiative...a drive that is needed by the human being ....as if all the energies of the earth were part of what makes up human nature. Also mentioned is the respect that must be given to the animal for its life, and the lack of cruelty. Also mentioned is that the animal nature, by being incorporated into the human being is raised to a higher level...which makes one wonder: what higher level are we consumed by?

"which makes one wonder: what higher level are we consumed by?"

I know, I know,....Guilt!

But seriously, other life forms becoming part of us , the cycle of life etc. It's got merit if only because it is a nature revealed model throughout the ages. Now the PETA groups are pushing that eating meat is worse than driving a car ethic as the global warming concerns take hold. I need to see the data and breakdown of the argument. There must be someway that I can eat my meat and not have it ruin my planet.

Well, I've been more or less vegetarian for most of the summer. I have found that when I ate meat or fish regularly, I felt more tired and not good in general. But I feel much better not eating meat or fish, so I've decided to avoid both. Though in the event I'm in the mood for either, I will have some. When that happens.

My naturopath, who recommended the BTD, told me that since the As evolved from the Os, I might be an O with A leanings.

Supplementing your meals by using nutritional yeast will provide a valuable food source of complex B vitamins.
