I eat plenty of chicken, turkey and fish but I usually don't feel good after eating red meat so I'll only eat it on special occasions.

Don't eat any meat except turkey once in awhile, makes me terribly constipated. I guess it is doing to my digestive tact exactly what it does to my blood vessels.



Quoted Text
Aging Profile

Warriors begin to see more and more flesh when they look in the mirror. The neck area becomes thickened, softer and less defined. Warriors with especially wide jaw angles may find their jaw lines gradually receding. BMI and waist-hip ratio rise steadily over time, especially if they have high fat and sugar diets and don't exercise. Their previously strong, slender bodies begin to sag, and fat accumulates around the waist area. In both men and women, hair thins, and bags appear under their eyes.

The circulatory system is the Achilles' heel of the Warrior. Programmed for over activity almost from the moment of their conception, the Warrior's unique cardiovascular system is the source of their health problems; from the tendency to develop hemangioma type 'Port Wine Stains' and 'Angel Kisses' on their skin in early age, to a tendency in early middle age to flush when they are stressed out, to problems with their blood pressure and heart in later middle age. Although we tend to think of the blood vessels as solid-walled pipes, in really the walls of the blood vessels are much like Venetian Blinds; able to flap open or closed depending on whether certain types of cells need to migrate from the blood into the tissues. A problem with the Warrior circulatory system is that lots of things in the blood cause these Venetian Blinds to flap so fast and frequently that they almost burn. From there they move on to cholesterol attachment, calcium buildup and artery disease. For those die-hards who just have to know everything, the Venetian Blinds are actually lectin-like molecules called selectins.

Thanks Andrea, yup the blood vessels have "flaps" for lack of a better word, that open and close as needed. Say for instance you have a cut and your body needs to send repair 'stuff' to the wound, the 'flaps' in the blood vessels open up to let that repair goop out to the right spot. Red meat makes those flaps open and close even when they don't need to, letting out the wrong stuff at the wrong time and just generally messing everything up.

Easy E and Symbi,
I am an Ao also...Mom is A+ and Dad is O- explorer. That is probably why my swami gives me Ostrich, Squab and Turkey as superfoods and Chicken and Cornish hens as neutrals. Goat and Lamb are black dots.
Its good that we listen to our bodies. Mine lets me know when I need my favorite salmon, cod or turkey! Just like it told me loud and clear to run like the wind from beef and pork!

I have always found beef revolting.  I eat lamb about once a month and chicken livers maybe
4 times a year. I eat turkey and lots of fish but I didn't even like beef as a child.  I would eat
my sister's baked potato (plus my own) and give her my steak. I think my sister just might be
an Explorer.  She's always craved meat.

Thats funny, Chloe!
My Mom tried to make me eat liver once a month and I would get a big glass of milk, a bottle of catsup and be all dramatic and act like I was being sacrificial/ obedient.....then sneak every last bite to my sweet little black poodle, Gigi who sat and ate very quietly under my chair!

I guess A2 and Ao don't matter much with meat lovin'.  It may be a problem being an A and liking and actually feeling energized eating meat.  If it has any significant fat, it weighs me down like I ate lead tho!  I can feel it in my blood !!

My Type A husband loves lamb.  It doesn't give him indigestion, which makes me think he might be a nonnie.

For me, the fattier the better.  Lean meat leaves me feeling like I ate nothing.  When I eat non-oily fish I slather ghee all over the veggies or whatever else I eat with it.  (or sometimes I just eat ghee straight out of the jar)

Back when I had hypoglycemia, I thought I thrived on red meat.  I ate beef just about every single day.  I had to have all that protein, I thought, to regulate my low blood sugar.  Enter BTD.  Not only do I no longer have hypoglycemia, but I figured out after I quit red meat, that it was actually making me tired and sluggish. And causing constipation.  But if you'd told me that pre-BTD, I wouldn't have believed you.

My AB aunt loved beef & ate lots of hamburger patties in her lifetime.  She is still here at 98, but in bad shape. However, most of her life she appeared healthy & rarely went to the dr.
I am suspecting she is an explorer as I have written before. She is very sensitive to meds & certain things.
Funny thing, she smoked like a chimney & was a coffee fiend. But for other things, she was careful.

So, the answer may be genotype as well as individual peculiarites.....

Really??? I love Turkey. Constipation? I consumed a fair bit or turkey regularly during different periods of having the best digestion of my life.

However if I try to do red meat and eat higher meat I get the serious digestion problems Dr. D talks about.

I have a daughter, not living at home, who was a vegetarian for 5 years. She put on abut 15 lb. Then when she started eating meat again, and lost all the weight, I assumed that she was a type O. Now, she tells me that she just had her blood tested and she is A-. I guess from the previous conversations, I can assume she is a Nonnie like me. She's not interested in the BTD, or variations. I'm just wondering if I could slip in a few comments to help her out (she is a good cook, and has a reputation  of liking  a huge variety of food). What could I tell her, or is this expecting too much with the limited information I have??

I feel like humans evolved to eat various meats and seafood (depending on ur type) and veggies, and fruits...maybe occassional seeds.  I strive to limit any whole grain (except some rice) and rare if any dairy at all.

Poppy, vegetarian usually means lots of dairy/cashews/starches/etc.

She could be a non-secretor, as you are.  Type A non-secretors have corn (all forms) and wheat as avoids.  

If she isn't interested, not much you can do...

Cajun - Did wonder if there are any other AOs on here.  Thanks for sharing.  Our parents blood types don't go into SWAMI, but like you, I get similar foods as an explorer - we must have similar health problems too.  I think I associate with the type O information written in LR4YT, the explorer seems to be a mixture of O and A information.
I feel like I'm a mixture of each genotype, some warrior sluggish digestion issues (have 3 arches on fingers) but I need red meat, as evidenced by low iron.  Used to crave beef every month  .  Now I have lamb instead (lucky to live in Australia!) and amazingly my cholesterol has gone down since last year.  (I cut out chicken wings but still have chicken drumsticks with skin every now and then.)  Now it's perfect with HDL 2.05 (protective should be above 1) and LDL 1.86 (should be below 2).  Iron has gone up with help of superfood molasses too.

Dr D said that A type explorers are one of the groups that didn't do so well on the blood type diet as they needed meat which was against type.

DoS - I think Andrea meant, like you, that any meat except turkey gives her constipation.

I feel like what you said symbi!  Explorers are hard to pinpoint.  Heck, i'm trying to learn myself!  I found that i prob have hidden food allergies to wheats and many whole grains.  I was also drinking beer each day   At the time, i considered food allergies meant you were on the ground gasping for air. A few times i was on the ground hocking up mucus!!  I thought they were what i needed most for awhile, but i was having chronic acid issues.  I also avoided meat, especially red meat.

Easy E and Symbi,

I agree with you two. We are all individuals, so different, but much alike in our
Ao combos, explorer tendencies and need for real protein. I can go one day without meat(turkey, fish, chicken) but then by day 2 my body has to have it.
My swami actually says I am a reactive teacher!

Poppy,

I have a close friend who is A- and I just know she is an explorer. She sees what BTD/GTD has done for me and is so curious but swears she has to have lean red meat about twice a week. Just like what Symbi said about Dr.D mentioning that A explorers are hard to figure out with the meat situation.

Well, maybe when my daughter is home next we will do some measuring, and see what comes up! Now I am a bit reassured that eating red meat for her is not necessarily bad, since it SEEMS to have been helping her. Thanks for the insight, and I'll tell her about the corn and wheat.

Poppy,

Can you tell her the true story about the innocent man who was accused of a crime when he was only 18 years old.  He finally was released from prison more than 10 years later because the perpetrator was a secretor and he was a non-secretor.    If you put the "CSI" type of spin on it, and explain that you are a non-secretor, maybe she'll want to find out if she is a secretor.

Warning:  the following links talk about crimes in detail

Here's some other secretor/non-secretor crime stories:
