Dr. D. doesn't have a problem with anyone as long as they don't "smear" other people.  You have to make your own decision about how much of anyone's information you listen to.  

Until I stop getting better using my current protocol, I am happy not having to spend time looking elsewhere for help!

Welcome Ag!

The easiest way to see the food list for your type is to obtain one or more of Dr. Peter D'Adamo's books, either purchasing them or getting them out of a public library.

There's a listing of foods online, but the way it's set up is rather cumbersome if you haven't already familiarized yourself with a food list from the books. It's intended to quickly check a single food for its suitability for various blood types (which is nice when  I want to see which foods are OK for both Os and Bs since I have both in my family.) You go to the top of any forum page, where it says "learn more" then a menu opens up and click on "food value lookup." http://www.dadamo.com/typebase4/typeindexer.htm

I think Agave is only 40 % Fructose not 100 %.

Quoted from narnia
OH..I meant in general.  I get his newsletters, and I didn't know if I should spend the time reading his stuff or just dismiss them.  I don't know if his opinions are upheld by Dr. Ds.


Narnia, I get his emails and I look at them every day.  Do I take everything he has to say as gospel?  Heck no.  Nobody can be right about everything.  Even Dr.D.  Sorry, I mean no disrespect.  

I don't think Dr. Mercola is an idiot though.  He has many good things to say.  Plus, his emails are usually him commenting on some new study that came out and seeing what his opinion is.  I think you will find there is some wisdom there that co-incides with much of the information in Dr. D's books.  Not all of it will.  If it's just confusing to read his stuff, I wouldn't do it.  I like to see some of things he has to say and some of the truth's he exposes about foods and sources of foods.  Etc.  

I still take cod liver oil, btw.  And I've seen it poo poo'd on there.  His big thing is krill oil  Which might be good stuff too.  I have no clue.

Ok, I read the first page on this thread...but don't have enough time to read the rest. I do not do well with any form of sweeteners or dried fruits as the sugar content is so high. Used to consume lots of honey, which my gut did not like...tried rice syrup the other day as it has no fructose...felt hypoglycemic a few hours later and headaches for the next 3 days. so is agave the best form of sweetener to use as it does not feed bacteria???

Heard a pod-cast the other day about how bad fructose is for the body but after reading this........very confused

Do you know that the reaction you had was not a detox reaction - which would be be very helpful to the body, in spite of making you feel ugly for several days?

You may start with less of the sweetener to enable the detox in smaller doses...

As far as hearing health information and being confused - you will need to start filtering information through BT filters to know if it is worthwhile to listen and follow...  Or at least remember that you need to test it for yourself prior to entering it into you book of knowledge for yourself...

Im not sure whether it's a detox reaction...but being off of sweeteners, I have felt a lot better, although I have not tried using agave for a period without using honey so Im not sure how my body copes with agave.

You're right, I probably should stop being so gullible; but with so much trial and error, Im getting sick of waiting to feel 100%!!!

Sweeteners need to be consumed in REALLY small amounts, like a teaspoon per day MAXIMUM if you're dealing with health issues. Healthy people can safely eat more.

Agave syrup is a concentrated sweetener. Eating too much of it isn't good for anybody. It can lead to a loss of blood sugar control and can probably feed "bad bacteria" if you use too much.

I don't have the patience to read Dr Mercola's writings anymore. I learned a lot from him a few years ago, when I knew a lot less about natural nutrition, and implementing his suggestions brought me to closer health. Now that I know more, I'm not learning as much from him, and I find that I disagree with some of his recomendations. He's still recomending a "one size fits all" dietary approach. If he thinks coconut oil is good, then he thinks everybody should eat it. If he thinks soy is bad, he thinks everybody should avoid it.

I've also found that his writing style has changed over the years. I find that his current writing is very sensationalist, but I don't recall that being the case 5 years ago.

Ruthiegirl, I echo your sentiments.  I used to find Mercola educational, but I finally unsubscribed about a year ago as the tone of his stuff creates unnecessary anxiety.  I wonder if for many people when they reach a certain level of fame it is hard to keep the ego under restraint.  I find the tone on Dr. D's sites just so much healthier and relaxed and hopeful

We don't use much sugar at all, there is so much hidden you don't really need much more.

we slip sometimes, but we never have it as a staple food. once you start having things like xylitol in your coffee  or green tea or over you oats, you are on a downward slope. certainly for O's and probably A's too in terms of risk of diabetes

Xylitol or whatever they call it. I wouldn't touch it. it's high fodmap, side effects include diarrhoea, gas, all the things you would be trying to avoid i imagine (enough said lol

all that stuf was and perhaps still is recommended as a free sugar fix, nothing is for free....

eat healthy according to blood type, exercise, eat fruit instead of sweets, and if you have to add sugar - perhaps you should check what is lurking in your body like yeast, or whatever.

I imagine Dr D would say to eat the whole fruit assuming it was right for your type, don't you or eat the nuts that contain it lol, he might think you nuts to even ask

sounds like aspartame, and it's great... for killing ants

There is some wisdom there that co-incides with much of the information in Dr. D's books.   Which makes me wonder if he is indeed simply GETTING it from Dr. D.'s books!! It has happened before.

we use agave...gave up sugar in our early 20's prior to reading Dr.D's diets. Our son, now 21 (hunter  nonni O - ) was apparently born with a mal functioning pancreas ie diabetic.He totally controls his condition with his diet and is very strong and healthy with no diabetic problems! He never had any sweets or sweetners except for trying organic Stevia once and organic fruit fruitose twice which gave him horrible shakes, depression,total high then total slump, sweats etc, Also tried xyitol which changed his personality within minutes, made him shaky and his heart race! Then a few years ago we discovered Agave syrup! He can take this in moderation and only uses it sparenly in festive cakes, the odd brownies etc but not on a daily basis.There was a time he was using it every day and he was dizzy, tired,sweats, poor concretration, poor immunity to flu type disease, poor sleeping, highs then lows, hugh rings under his eyes etc, He cut it back and all the symptoms of diabetis have gone and he is fine. He has measured his blood sugar with and without Agave and there is no difference! If indicated for your type I think organic 100% Agave is ok in moderation,and  not every day.

I use Agave in my green tea. I have no issues with it. All other sweeteners like sugar, stevia etc...have always caused a spike. From what I read agave doesn't cause a spike.

Sure it doesn't cause a spike but it gets processed differently in the body & can still cause weight gain in some people...
