Do any type A's out there get bad reactions from tomatoes? It is an 'avoid' but I am curious because I seem to always feel OK after them.

How about you? How do you feel?

I'm one of those people who can eat tomatoes, but I try to limit my consumption. Right now I'm following the GTD, and tomatoes are a black dot food for Warriors.

As soon as you can, I strongly urge you to get your secretor status checked. The foods that an A nonnie and an A secretor can eat are vastly different.

It's hard. I live in Hong Kong. I haven't found anyone who does it here. I have checked.

I have only been on the diet two days but I already have chest pains. I am worried.

There are members here who live in HK, or at least nearby, who have gotten theirs done. Read all the threads where you've posted recently, I just saw that C_Sharp posted links for you.

Yes I have emailed that company but so far no reply but it is OK, maybe tomorrow.

Any reason for the chest pains you think? Could it be detox?

Two days on the diet will not cause chest pains. Worry is one of the things that might be contributing to the chest pain but there are other things as well. One possibility is digestive related though, such as a hiatial hernia, which a change in diet could accentuate. Other causes range from benign to serious. You might also consider whether you wish to see an MD.

If you're use to having processed food with guar gum, and carrageenan and things like that and you stop them, might be some mild withdrawals. We kind of get addicted to food additives..I believe companies put things in the food to keep people buying it.

Raw tomatoes don't bother me. Cooked tomatoes, like spaghetti sauce are like Russian roulette. The times that I've gotten the worsed indigestion of my life I had eaten tomato sauce then.

My daughter gets headaches and stomach aches from eating tomatoes...  She can't even eat a sandwich that has had tomato slices removed from it...

Gosh, that is terrible. I'm too scared to do a tomato test for the moment...maybe in a few weeks. I want to know if I can eat the raw ones, or the cooked, or nothing at all...

Tomatoes  are in the nightshade family with Potatoes. Tomatoes don't bother me; Potatoes cause my joints to swell and hurt. For A Non-secretors on BTD Tomatoes are a neutral and Potatoes are Avoid.

I think you said you are a Teacher. On GenoType diet Tomatoes are a Black Dot Avoid for Teachers. Meaning to avoid them for 3 -6 months. I do realize you are doing the BTD but you could skip the tomatoes for a while and try them later.

I don't know about you but I am the Queen of Anxiety. I can be calm outwardly and twisted like a knot inside. It goes with the Blood Type. We have to learn to be calm. So try to keep things as simple as you can. Your doing great

I'm the same way with cooked tomatoes. It must be an A secretor thing???
