I need help, ??) I am a O blood type and I love oranges. But every time I eat them nothing bothers me.

Thanks!  and have a nice day(sunny)

apparently they contain polyamines...which are ok for children, but bad for adults....(I know, I like them too) but you can have lemons and grapefruit.

Hi sweet spirit!

Welcome to the forum. If you go to the member center (link near the top left of this page) you can pick out a nice avatar to express your blood type, like the rest of us have. That way any of us can tell at a glance what your blood type is and be able to help you better. While you are there, there are several other optional things you might do like create a signature or enter your age or sex, among other things.

Oranges are considered avoids for type O, as the others have mentioned. While you may feel fine eating them, they still have an undesirable effect on your system. Also, you may feel fine now, but would feel better after you have eliminated various avoids from your diet. Wheat and corn are the two most important and the best place to start.

Don't forget to eat plenty of beneficials, too!

Hey sweet spirit...as an O I love them too and don't seem to have problems with them, but don't eat them anymore as they are an avoid.  Orange juice, on the other hand, gives me troubles with heartburn and tummy grief.   Lemons, limes and grapefruits are a better choice for you.  

Anytime you want to check out if a food is okay for you to eat go to the typebase at the top of this page http://www.dadamo.com/typebase4/typeindexer.htm and click onto many of the foods that have been tested.   If you can't find a food on there treat it as a neutral and if you don't have any issues with it it should be okay for you.  Once you are on the BTD way of life for a while with the benefical mostly and neutral foods for your 'O' blood type it is easier to see what reaction your body has to certain foods...beneficials, neutrals or avoids.  This is not a one size fits all diet and we all react in different ways...even if the foods have been tested and are supposed to be okay for you.

On your personal profile it shows that you are 11 years old.  Great that you are starting from such an early age to care for the health of your body.  Keep posting and ask any questions you have.  We are here for you.

Tip:  a little fruit called a kumquat is a great substitute for oranges.  To eat a kumquat, you do NOT peel it (the peel is actually sweeter than the "flesh", plus it is packed with nutrients).  You simply either pop the whole kumquat into your mouth, if it is small enough, or else bite off half (usually, it is big enough so that you have to do the latter) and eat it, rind and all, spitting out the seeds as you go.  Not a good food for a first date *lol*, but WONDERFUL, very revitalizing, and very reminiscent of oranges.

St. Dalfour makes a kumquat marmalade that substitutes nicely. Ingredients: Unsweetened grape juice concentrate, Kumquat (35%), gelling agent fruit pectin.

Well, that sounds nice for an all-fruit jam, but what I meant was that the fresh, whole kumquats are delish as a substitute for oranges.  I planted three little kumquat trees a few years back, in my side yard.  They don't produce much in the way of fruit because they are so drought-challenged (it is very hard for me to water over in that area of the property, for a few reasons), but what fruit I do get is wonderful.  Jams and jellies are great, but I urge everyone to try the fresh, whole fruit for a rejuvenating treat.

I wholeheartedly agree on fresh, whole fruits being better for us than jams/jellies, but your post reminded me of the marmalade...

Hi Sweet spirit,  

One of the reasons that eating for our blood type is so wonderful is that it not only helps us to be healthy right now, but it protects our future health.  Most diseases are built slowly, over many, many years because of eating avoids (which are like poisons to our bodies).  Many of these avoids don't give an instant reaction, so we can be fooled into believing that they are harmless.  Sadly, damage to our bodies can be invisible and by the time diseases develop, it is hard to get rid of them.



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.

My dad loved them, too, but did get bladder cancer after doing so well after heart surgery, etc.
If you absolutely must have them, at least eat them in season &  only eat the best tasting ones, so you can get the benefit of the avoid !!!
My dad insisted on eating them all year round. Maybe if he only ate in season, the bad effects could wear off the rest of the time.
The bladder cancer he had was only stage 2 & thought to be curable, but it kept coming back. He died last year in May at age 90.
