My dear husband (blood type unknown) has hight LDL Cholesterol. Dr sent him a diet. He seems willing to try to adjust his diet.(my chance)

Is there a book that might help me support him in his new diet? I hope to get him to test his blood soon.

I don't have a lot of faith in MD's

Can't offer much until you know the blood type. You can pick up a test kit at many local pharmacies, why not try that? It's really simple. Or order a kit from NAP.

Doing the diet and following one or more protocols will normally bring it down though.

The Cardiovascular Health book would be a great book to buy.

Eating for his blood type and fine tuning his diet along the guidelines of the Cardiovascular book is the best approach that I know.  These steps lowered my LDL and raised my HDL very successfully!  I'm sold on this way of eating for cardiovascular health.

I have just finished reading the Cardiovascular book from Health Series. It is a great motivator. I have been compliant since, not long enough but long enough for me

I have to say that I also reread parts of a book by the Director of the Cardiovascular Institute at Mount Sinai New York (Dr. Fuster) and I went for BTD vs. regular food piramid proposed by Dr. Fuster.

Dr. Fuster makes a lot of very good motivators for selecting a healthy lifestile but Dr. D'Adamo's is more convincing on the potential health benefits of his proposal. D'Adamo goes deeper and in greater detail into the "why" it can happen to someone and "how to" reduce the chances of it happening.

Best wises for you and your husband.

Thank you for your help.

I have been studying the diet DH's Dr. sent and feeling frustrated. á

Then it occured to me áthat it is very much like the my own A type diet.
It seems to me the best and simplest thing to do until we know his type is to have him do the type A diet with me.

I feel very sure DH is not a type 0.
And it seems to me that the other 3 types are very simular. á

As far as our basic food likes and dislikes: á
He likes and tolerates Milk and I never have.
Neither of us care much for meat.

I don't think he is a nonnie bc he is so sturdy.
For instance - We worked with wood for 25 yrs. If I got a splinter it immediatly started to fester and I had to get it out to ward of infection; he always said his body ate them bc they would just disolve.

I've been looking for the Heart book. If the other book store and HFS don't have it I'll order it.


Thanks again.

1.) My sympathies.......same thing w/ my mom and the MD's diabetic diet. I told her it would make her worse and it almost killed her. Got her to do BTD. In 2 mths she felt so good, she decided she could eat what she wanted again.    Sick again. Hopefully your DH will see the vast improvement and stick w/ it.  
2) please do get his blood typed asap..........Rodney can tell you how awful eating for the wrong blood type will make you feel.  
3) dont put too much stock in this.........I could really go w/o meat even tho I'm an O.  
4)   sounds like my husband..........nothing bothers him......he had a big ol wood splinter under his thumb nail for 5 days before he had it surgically removed. Ughhhhhhhhhh makes me ill to think about it!! He's a real work horse, never stops it sometimes seems.  He's tough as nails, altho I was just told recently that the fact he doesnt feel much pain in his extremities could be a sign of diabetes. Guess it's time for the ol' fasting glucose test again.
I also agree w/ the Cardio book suggestion. Hope he will see improvement soon!!

Really, it's so cheap & easy to find out. Then you will know you are attacking the problem from the right angle. á{{{myself, I was guessing O. You really just have to check.}}}

If he was B ( him feeling ok with dairy - not being a huge meat fan- some B┤s are more vegetarian than others....) the A diet would be pretty bad for him- he then needs the approach- that is way more like the O┤s- cutting back on grains etc....
