I have had the book Eat Right For Your Type for several years now.
I am wondering why the "B" diet in my book says to avoid rye but also says that Wasa bread and Finn Crisp is highly beneficial?
Is it a mistake?  All the Finn Crisp or Wasa I have found is made from rye and/or wheat.

Welcome!

Many products have changed since that book was published, so some of the reccomendations for specific products are out of date. His newer work focuses on ingredients, not specific products. Check out the typebase on this website for the most up-to-date information.

Here's a rule of thumb for the items in Eat Right 4 Your Type: if it is a product rather than a whole food, the rating of that product depends on the value of the individual ingredients. So, for the avoid-rye folks, products containing rye are an avoid as well. I apologize for the confusion -- it stemmed from a desire to include 'alternate' products for people who might not know of them. We're moving toward listing only whole foods, distinct items and forms thereof from now on.

Finn Crisp and Wasa come in many different kinds of grains and combinations. Perhaps in your area they are only available in rye, but not the case elsewhere. If rye is an avoid, you should absolutely avoid the rye Finn Crisp and Wasa bread.

Hi DeWitch,

I work with Wasa and thought I could help! If you click on the "product locator" at the bottom of the Wasa website here:http://www.wasa-usa.com/ you can find non-rye products. I hope this helps!

Hi all,

Thank you for the welcomes and replies.

I am type B+ as my avatar should be indicating - don't know secretor status yet.

We actually also have several types of Wasa and Finn Crisps in the stores here in NH,
I also went to the Wasa link that was nicely provided (thank you).  
All types of both products that I found have either rye flour or wheat - both are not recommended for type B.
Really sad here as I love "crunchy".

Wheat ca be ok ( neutral) for some B´s
- it is mainly whole wheat products that are bad.

I don´t really do well with much grains however.

Wonderful!

I was just at a cheese specialty store and bought some wonderful goat imported cheeses as well as some Finn Crisp and Wasa crackers. Why are these so called nutrition experts so up and down from day to day?

Same thing with Dr. Mercola another so called nutrional guru. On you tube he has an older video where in it he labels himself "Dr Fibre" explaining the merits of whole grain fibre. Later on in newer videos he's saying avoid wheat at all costs....go figure! Same preacher , different sermon! Also go to any diabetic site and there preaching about the merits of whole grains.

Sorry for the rant and thanks for links with the current updates. I just want to settle into putting whatever is healthy for me in my body and stop throwing stuff in the garbage or giving it to the neighbors...Lol!

Problem is, is that on the internet there are so many varying opinions on everything that it can be really hard for the average guy to figure out.

Cheers!

Dr Mercola offers a lot of different kinds of nutritional advice. Over the years, his specific advice has changed, depending on which research he'd most recently read. At all times, though, he seems to advocate the same thing for everybody, regardless of blood type. He reccomends some new supplement and advises absolutely everybody to take it ,rather than recognising that some people will do great on this product, while others may actually see a decline in health by using it.

Many other "nutriton experts" haven't done the kind of research Dr D has done. Much of the established research out there doesn't recognize individuality or take  blood type into account at all.

Dr D'Adamo has always recognized that we're all unique individuals with unique nutritional needs. Over time, he's gotten better and  better at determining which foods are good or bad for which individuals. While his advice has changed over the years as he's done more research, it's been a matter of fine-tuning things, not a matter of contradicting himself.

For example, in his first  book he said that no Bs should eat wheat or tomatoes. But now he knows that most B secretors are OK with white flour (not whole wheat) and most B non-secretors can have tomatoes. Genotype diet and SWAMI refine things even further, so each individual can acheive optimal health while enjoying the widest diet possible.

I'd suggest that you follow Dr D'Adamo's nutritional advice, and ignore any of those "one size fits all" diets out there. The diabetic sites are reccomending whole grains over refined grains, but fail to recognize that some individuals do best on low grains altogether, or that selecting one grain over another can have a great impact on an individual's health. You can eat whole spelt flour, brown rice, and whole grain oats, as long as you stay within the portion size and frequency guidelines. Whole wheat flour is NOT going to improve your health.
