Sorry if this is in the book(s).  I've rented both of these from the library to read - ER4YBT and LR4YBT only so far.  The Geno-Type is on backorder, seems a lot of interest in that one!

My question is on the beneficials.  Is it important to get in more of the beneficials from ALL of the food groups listed?

As an A I am working on changing over to more soy which is a big change for me.  I'm adding more and more veggies and fruit which aren't a problem for me.  In fact I'm doing pretty well in all areas except the beverage group.  I LOVE my Earl Grey tea in the mornings.  I worked diligently to get  myself off of coffee years ago now to read that a cup of coffee per day is beneficial for a type A.  I'm a tea drinker through and through now and have cut back to just Earl Grey in the morning, green or white the rest of the day.  Am I missing something really, really beneficial by not drinking coffee?

Same with red wine.  My family of origin, on both sides, are addicts.  Alchohol, drugs, food - you name it, we've got someone addicted to it.  I made a conscious decision to not drink years ago,deciding that I just didn't want to open that door.

So now I just need some reassurance that I'm not really missing something terribly beneficial by not drinking red wine?  Are the benefits of one certain food, say soy, better than the benefits of coffee or red wine for a type A?

Benefical acts like medicine.


Red wine is not essential nor is coffee.. but soy well I consider that essential to my diet. Some other A's may not they may have an intolerance. We are each individuals with unique needs.


You have lots of choices on the diet. So pick what works best for you and don't sweat the small stuff.

In general, it is good to eat beneficial/superfoods as the biggest percentage of your daily food intake.  However, that does not mean that you must eat all beneficial foods.  As your example shows, you may be better off without any alcoholic beverages, which is perfectly fine.

In other cases, people may have to stay away from gluten, if they cannot tolerate it, for example.

Also, keep an eye on Dr. D's frequency/portion recommendations.  We don't need to overdo a good thing, even if we are eating a beneficial food.

give us the list of foods and we will show you how to search according to the fruit or vegetable botanical family......
as a general rule....food not listed and not related to the one listed, should be considered neutral, unless a noticeable reaction on your part when ingesting it.

use common sense, when deciding what you can have.

I have contacted him. I understand his situation very well. When you're new to this lifestyle and when you know that it's a good system it takes more than common sense to deal with the vast majority of food items which are not commonly available outside America or Europe.
