I have 2 eggs scrambled in ghee with a spoonful of fresh almond butter and a very small amount of cranberry/hot pepper jam.  Takes just a minute or two to make in the morning but it gives me the energy I need at the beginning of the day before heading off to the office.

Hello, i started this diet about a month ago and i find it very expensive but so worth it!  Shopping for new clothes last weekend has made me poor also i am now shopping twice a week as i get my food fresh! However, i have lost weight and feel great so i cant complain!

For my breakfast i eat Coco Pops with soya milk. At work, i have a lots of fruit with soya yogurt and i have lots of salad with plenty of meat for my type.  i dont have time to make dinner most nights so i have fish with rice cakes.  Or if mum makes my dinner it be meat and veg! i hope all of this sounds okay!!!!!  

Not eating bread anymore has been the main factor in losing weight, i use to eat ALOT of it!

I d have some left over dinner for breakfast instead.....
better than those soy pops or whatever which might raise your blood sugar levels
soy is fine, provided you are a secretor......so if by any chance your weight loss comes to a halt, you know what to do next.....a secretor test

always check ingredients behind all products you buy, for hidden additives, gums, oils, sweeteners, not right for you

Good job with letting go of the bread...  

I think the next step would be to find a better breakfast.

@labrat: That's why I recommended Spelt bread as a temporary measure.


My SWAMI diet is a blend of BTD and GTD Explorer, but I'm not totally compliant.  Also I try to choose foods that have a Low Glycemic index.  DW and DD are A+, probably also Explorer.

I was surprised to find that what I thought was rye bread had whole wheat flour listed as the first ingredient.  Be Ware!  


This is a good example of why we can't trust what the 'name' of a product is, such as "Rye Bread".  All that matters is what the list of ingredients contains.

Ok i have just found out what blood type i am and i usually every morning have an organic egg on whole wheat toast with some cream cheese spread. Or i will have oatmeal, I cant fathom having steak for breakfast. Can anyone help me, am i allowed eggs? Any easy breakfast ideas

Thank you

totally stressed about this eating thing


You can have cheese on spelt or oat toast instead of wheat. I found cutting out wheat was the single most significant change I noticed. My IBS has all but settled down after months of turmoil. Try cutting wheat first ..an egg 3 times a week is a good idea or any of the neutral cheeses for O's. Im a B so breakfast for me is always spelt toast with low-fat feta cheese.

Does contain gluten, but sprouted rye, much lower than wheat.
If you are going for weight loss, watch out on serving size.

That is true of any commercial rye bread I have seen in the supermarket. I have not seen 100% anywhere so you do have to be careful. I agree rice is the best place to start but rice bread usually has avoids.

MickeyMouse: I know how you feel. I ate oatmeal everyday for years and loved it. Now it's eggs just about everyday, sometimes with veggies, sometimes over easy on spelt toast, sometimes with leftover pieces of lamb.

BUT we are all unique, even among blood type O, so experiment and don't get discouraged. My sister and I are both O's but have very different tolerance levels. I can eat eggs every day, she can eat them a few times a week.

IT sounds like you've made a lot of positive changes in your diet. Congrats on the weight loss!

However, it sounds like there's still plenty you can do to make your diet even healthier. I'm not sure what's in those coco pops, but that doesn't sound like a healthy thing to be eating daily. And soy isn't really a great food for Os. When I consumed as much soy as you're eating now, it completely messed up my menstrual cycles. My type O daughters had a similar reaction. Soy is a wonderful food for As, but for Os it's really something we can have in moderate amounts, if at all. Also remember that soymilks and soy yogurts are highly processed foods, unlike traditional forms of soy such as tofu, miso, and tamari. I use wheat-free tamari (naturally brewed soy sauce) and that's the only soy I use.

If you're happy with your diet, you don't need to change anything. You're certainly welcome on this board even if you're not following the diet 100%. I'm just giving you this information so that you can improve your diet further if you want to.

Switching over from eating cereal or grains for breakfast to meat and veggies can be difficult at first. Lots of good suggestions in the posts above. Here's what I did:

~~Switch to oat bran in place of whole oats. It's just as tasty, but has less starch to spike your blood sugar. Try it without sugar: just add a little butter or ghee and a pinch of sea salt and serve with chopped toasted walnuts, almonds or pecans.

~~try Victoria's suggestion of all-rye bread to replace the whole wheat. (French Meadows makes a really good all-rye loaf if you can find it.) You might also consider making your own spelt bread. It's not hard at all; there are several spelt bread recipes in Recipe Central. Spelt is a good transition grain and tastes like wheat, only better.

~~check out some of the really tasty turkey, chicken and/or lamb sausage available in most stores (always read ingredient lists to make sure you're not buying something full of avoids). You can also easily make your own patty sausages from ground turkey, chicken or lamb. turkey or beef bacon is another option, though I wouldn't rely on them too often as they're usually full of chemicals and way too much salt.

~~Eggs are fine for breakfast. How about an omelette filled with leftover veggies from last night's dinner, along with some diced pot roast or turkey? Guaranteed tasty and good for you too.

Hope these ideas are helpful to you.

The only 100% rye bread with no wheat that I've found is at my local Kroger on the shelf of foods imported from Germany.  It is very dark and looks like a thinly sliced brick wrapped in cellophane.  I believe it's made from a sourdough.  It has a strong flavor and is very dense.  I really like it, but I have stopped eating it because I think I have gluten problems and rye does have gluten.  Also I still have carb cravings/blood sugar issues.  If I eat bread, I'll just want more bread.  

p.s.  I love oats but they've always given me a bit of indigestion, and now I know why.  They're avoids for non-secretors.

Thank you for your messages   i will eat meat now for breakfast because even though Coco pops is rice it also contains Barley! i loved coco pops!  i will stop soya yogurt (contains Carrageenan) and soya milk (contains gum) too!  what would you suggest to go with my fruit?  

i brought sprouted wheat bread from a food store but i cant find the word essene on the packet so best not eat it!  Dont think england sells it!  

i was a bit confused when i brought the little book on Blood Type O and compared it to the Eat right for your type and found that certain foods were in different categories.  Is the food list on this site the most up-to-date because i always go to it now instead of the book?

Hi there!! Yes the food list on this site is the most up to date...
Some of the books were written quite a while ago...hence the potential for confusion, as more research has been done

I know you said you were giving them up (well done/good call) but those cocoa pops have a heap of different sugars in them, as well as other avoids....yummy little things though eh?

Check the ingredients on the sprouted wheat bread - some of them contain gluten... Was pointing that out to my daughter in LA recently as they have only changed recently &  a few ppl here got caught out...

My husband is an O but pretty sure he is a Hunter & he can tolerate little amounts of wheat/gluten - just as well as he travels a lot for work & has no choice at times...

All the best & welcome
