I watch it all the time for "secrets" to make my dishes better.  Based on what I see not only does "Pork Fat Rules" but "Obesity Reigns" as well!

Pasta is so healthy!  Yeah right!. I do actually watchit a lot, Iron Chef is on now, but I know I've got to tweak things. I do get some good ideas watching it, then I make it better.

I sometimes watch cooking shows, usually on PBS, but I only watch for new ideas for taste combinations...  I have to substitute for ingredients, but I know that going in...  Sometimes there will not be anything usable - it is somewhat hit or miss...

Yes, we do not get normal, free to air  tv here, but I am glad I have access to pay tv at least and the food, lifestyle, home craft chanels is what I watch the most.  Watch in a detached mode to take on ideas and adapt to my true type lifestyle.

As I write this I'm watching the Food Network. I have always enjoyed watching the combinations of things. For instance watching Iron Chef tonight I just got really excited cause Bobby Flay used oregano, cumin and turmeric together. I never thought all those three would be good together. Very excited to try it on some fish. He put it on chicken but I'm not eating any meat other than fish. I might add chicken back in later. But right now I've decided to cut it out completely.


O positive baby boy.

I often find it frustrating to read recipes in magazines and think "I can't have that, I can't have that, I can't have that...WOW!!! I can actually eat this one!!!..Can't have that..." The biggest frustration is tomato, since that's usualy an integral part of the dish's flavor and can't be easily omitted or substituted for. Beef or veal works anywhere they call for pork, and olive oil or butter usually works where they call for pork fat.

I think that watching the Food Channel would frustrate me even futher, even though I know I'd probably learn some new ideas and techniques I could adapt to my allowed foods.

My DH and I love "Chopped"! Ha ha, its so much fun! 4 chef's compete,etc. with mystery ingredients! They really have to think on their feet! I try to think fast and imagine how I would treat the ingredients in such a short time.

I agree about the use of tomato in the cooking channel recipes.  I pick up some good hints, otherwise.  Does anyone love rice angel-hair pasta the way I do?    I don't even want to go back to the standard pasta.  It's also very good for my A husband.

Ya, I enjoy watching "Chopped" too. Did you see that one they did with tofu skins and starfruit? Wow, I was trying to figure out how the heck I would cook with tofu skins and I don't do anything with starfruit ever, it's very tart/sour. That was fun to watch.

I watch it. They cook a lot of beef, pork and chicken.. All avoids for me. I like to watch Semi Homemade and Barefoot Contessa ...Ina Garten is so freaking heavy..Doesn't she care about her health..? But she does make some awesome recipes.  I keep watching hoping there will be something I can make ...for me. Alton Brown's Good Eats is really good too. Funny.

They had a celiac cook on "Chopped" once, unfortunately she didn't make it past the second round. I don't think that they have rice or millet flour available. I have made my on oat flour out of oatmeal but true celiacs can't even do that.

I think we could put together a BTD show.

Half an hour, usually 22 minutes of on-air programming. A minute opener, two minutes for closing credits, so 19 minutes of air time. (Put out-takes during the closing credits, or testimonials of people who got on the diet.)

You could make that 3 six-minute recipes for different blood types, give or take minutes for complexity. And I think make it a breakfast, lunch, and dinner for each segment, mixing up which type gets what. (And for type AB's, just tell them what to switch for the A's.) The last minute could be a "Quick Snack" item, for two blood types.

Open each show with a disclaimer that while the diet is designed for optimum health, it should not be used in substitution of a medical doctor's advice, so one should be consulted if someone is on a restricted diet.

If the show was picked up, and made daily, make one day for kids, one day for seniors, and maybe one day or one day a month for parties. Then you can pick a day each month for various ethnic cuisines (so a Mexican day, Chinese, Indian, etc). Make most days for blood type specific, and one day for two mixes. Heck, one day for three types (but that may be kind of limited in terms of what is available).

And, I think invite in guests, usually people with various health problems (obesity, asthma, cancer survivors, etc) and teach them to cook the food. Make that one meal a show, the others can be complex things, condensed for time.

If you can develop a chef who can do the diet, and has a good personality, you can see that chef on Oprah, Dr. Oz, Good Morning America, etc.

I think I may be addicted to the food network - and unlike every addiction it's bad, bad, bad  
I don't feel like I'm missing out but I use it to replace eating!
