Hello everyone!  I have been reading about the BTD for a week now and I finally got my blood type.  I'm an A+ but I have no idea what my secretor type is.  I will be going out shopping this weekend so I can start the plan on Monday and I have a soy question.  I found out about 6 months ago that I am highly allergic to soy.  I was on a very "successful" diet of high protein (in the form of soy) and high vegetables and I lost about 25 pounds.  Unfortunately, the soy was causing sever sebboreah dermititis and even some hair loss.  I came off the diet immediately and of course gained the weight back rather quickly.  Now, having read the Type A beneficial foods, I see that Soy is on the list.  Can someone please recommend an alternative to Soy (especially soy milk)?  Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks!!

concentrate on avoiding your avoids, and follow the frequency guidelines given in the book, soy is a very good protein source for As, unless you turned out being a nonnie.

read the tutorial, and find out more, about your individuality, also last lesson talks about nonnie status and all.

I have an intolerance to soy. I would get your secretor status checked like others have said. It is almost entirely neutral for me except for miso which I avoid anyway. I use hemp milk and rice milk, there are many other benefical and neutral beans to explore. Since Im a nonsecretor I really only have a few benefical beans where as the A secretors have much more to choose from. I would concentrate on Pinto beans, lentils, green beans, and any other of the allowed beans until you know your status. I hope that helps.

Thank you so much for your input.  I will definitely find out my secretor status, but until then, I will enjoy breakfast cereal with rice milk!  I will also stock up on beans...thankfully I'm a fan.  Does it matter if I use canned beans or should I stick to dry?  The dry beans just take so long to prepare.

Welcome to the forum!

Yes, finding out your secretor stauts would be very useful.

Canned is okay. In general you want to stay away from canned when possible but there is enough other stuff for you to work on without worrying about that right now.

Another thing worth mentioning is that a fair percentage of our Soy is Genetically Modified which can cause all  kinds of allergies.  Perhaps you could try a tiny amount of ORGANIC soy milk to see what happens after you're on the diet for a while and doing well.  If you were actually allergy tested for Soy, it is highly doubtful that they used a good quality ORGANIC Soy product in the allergy serum.  Using only ORGANIC soy products is the only way to assure that you are not getting GMO Soy.

There is also Almond milk (regular, vanilla & chocolate).  Perhaps you might like that as well as the Rice Milk.

Its funny that I never had a problem with soy until after I went on the diet. I always used non GMO organic soy when I did eat it. But as I started getting more and more complient I noticed an increase in an intolerance to soy. Now its pretty obvious when I have it and a can predict what will happen to my body the next day and it always happens. There are quite a few A nonsecretors that dont tolerate soy. I remember reading somewhere that Dr. D even noticed there being a percentage of A nonsecretors that dont tolerate soy at all. Maybe that will be included in the Genotype book or maybe not.

Perhaps accjulie is a non-secretor then?  It might be worth doing a secretor test since there are other differneces in the sec & non sec diets.

I dont Know yet. But I recently stopped dairy, just to see if it would clear up some digestive issues since Im lactose intolerant and I have lost weight, stopped my usual bloating and my digestion is working better. Considering that A2s have to decrese by 1 serving per week the already infantismal amount of dairy they do get. Im leaning towards A2 in my mind. I do better with a bit more neutral or beneficial meat then you would expect for an A.

soy is not dairy, it is a legume.

avoid it until you can tolerate it better.
some people following the guidelines, and avoiding all the lectins, begin to do better with food, beneficial or neutral to them, to which they were allergic before the diet.

so it can either be that or secretor status, or other reasons.

Hi to all!
I am also allergic to organic soy products. I actually start to wheeze, and I'm an A secretor. I have stopped it and retried it with the same result. Almond milk is pretty good especially if you make your own.
I'm trying to find canned mackeral which I used to get at A.J.'s and now can't find it. It's so awesome! Anyone know of a source?
We just moved and I'm getting back into compliance with my A diet and i'm thankful that this site is here.
Best wishes to all!
Sunny

I am an A who is also allergic to soy.  I defintiley know you can sensitize yourself to something if you are eating it too often.  I never had a problem with occasional soy...until I moved to a very cold, damp climate and became a vegan. This was almost 20 years ago, before we had hemp, almond, rice milk.  Soy was my staple: soy milk on cereal, soycheese for lunch, tofu for dinner, you get the picture.  That winter I had the cold from hell...three months of mucous.  Finally a coworker suggestedI get off soy and literally within 48 hours I dired up and flet great.  

From a chinese medicine perspective soy is a cold, damp food and I am a cold damp type.  Eating soy just aggravated my cold damp nature.  Now I avoid all soy in the cold damp times of year.  But in the summer I can handle the occasional edamame,tofu or tempeh.  I avoid all processed soy like soy cheese, soy milk etc.
