I think it is completely true. I see them respond the best, by far. Major hollywood trends etc, they are doing the best with the "low carb" thing and hard exercise.

For Type A's that are not Explorers, it is more difficult to have to hold back from intense exercise or strong dietary choices. The high strung society of today is not that Type A friendly, but blood type O's certain have the capacity to push through and burn off steam with exercise on the side.

Type O dominate all the art and culture around me where I live... It makes it difficult for those of use that got nothing else since there is an awful lot of peer pressure for what is acceptable.

I think that is probably not true. It's just that the benefits of the A diet tend to amortize more over the long haul, so perhaps their posts are not as breathless as those of the Os.

The thing about Os, is that when we give up wheat, in particular, it makes such a dramatic and immediate difference in our sense of well being.  As Dr. D. says, As' benefits amortize over the long haul.  Yes, we Os seem to be compulsively/spontaneously vociferous about it too!

wrotek, you might need to narrow and target your search yet more, to begin getting better results.

the more you find out about yourself, beginning with secretor status, and then eventually moving over to a more personalized nutrigenomic approach like a swami??

good hunting!

From my experience, when i eat the right things, i feel better pretty quickly.  When i eat too many of the wrong things, i feel it too.  And the exercise thing is relative to what you are used to.  

Sometimes it does not feel good at the time when you are getting into it, but you start feeling better if you stick to it and learn what works best for you.

There are also more O's than any other blood type, so more success stories will be seen with O's in general i would think.

I'm a happy O sure.  When I go off the diet I become so negative.  

I have an A friend who can't eat my food and who really is like the textbook A whatever that is- just very different from me.  His health and weight issues aren't like mine but no he doesn't tend to believe in the A diet and won't do it consistently- still wonders all these years later what is causing his acid reflux.

Oh, yeah, that's definitley part of it! Plus aren't O's the most popular blood type, so there's simply more of us?

Another factor, I think, is that the "Typical American Diet", with its emphasis on "healthy whole grains" and "low fat" and "minimize red meat" is absolutely AWFUL for O's! An A following those reccomendations may see only subtle changes when they switch to the BTD, if their prior diet wasn't quite so bad for them.

But an O who's  been eating lots of grains and minimizing animal protein is going to see a dramatic improvement when they switch to BTD.

OTOH, somebody coming from a low-carb diet would have the opposite reaction to BTD (subtle improvements for an O, dramatic changes for an A.)

Given how poorly Type A's absorb and use nutrients when out of balance, this is the only way I can see Type A's going, long term, even though supposedly you said Teachers and Explorers respond quick. I guess that does not per say mean heal instantly either.

Funny how it isn't for Type A like to be enduring (impatient perfectionist when out of balance) but this lifestyle for changes requires it.

I'm an A who has been following this "diet" for a very long time. The changes were subtle and I didn't really need much "fixing", didn't really have many problems except an extra 10 to 15 pounds I was always trying to lose. This way of eating made sense to me, so I followed it. 12 years later at age 55 my BP is 115/60, my HDL is 98 and my triglycerides are 66, my BMI is 20, so is my body fat %, the Dr. says my kidneys and liver are functioning very well. All this without any medication and very little effort, just following the plan.

I can see where an O consuming a lot of wheat and having a lot of problems would see a dramatic improvement. I just love how simple this is and how good the food is

There are both O's and A's in my circle.
The A's tend to be more shy in public but more relaxed and outgoing in the inner circle, this may be why the O's talk more than the A's about their success.

WHen looking at the diets as an O I found it easier to adjust (still amazed at the difference potatoes make), but the A's often tell me that they find it very hard as the vegetarian-A diet is such a big change from the typical Irish diet, and can be difficult to stay compliant.

Interesting both the A's and O's in my circle cannot eat fish--we get a 'gag' reaction to it. This is a huge pity as we live in a fishing town.

I think depending on WHERE each person came from this for your type eating benefits all.  It might just be that we O's are so relieved that we have a place to eat comfortably that we are staying 'here' longer and with special devotion over decades.


Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

Saying it another way the initial effect could be a little more dramatic as major elements of the mainscream diet (Wheat, Milk, Potatoes, Corn) are O avoids. Relief from this burden alone would make a great difference let alone other improvements. Different but good.

To amortize (in financial terms) is to spread out payment over time.  Applying this to dietary benefits - the results happen in small portions over a period of time, rather than "all at once" which seems more typical for Type O in this comparison.

I means that the benefits of the A diet happen over a longer period of time (months or years) rather than showing a dramatic change right away.

With O's it seems that changes are noted more quickly.

It kinda sucks. Probably not as bad as cancer though.

I've been on Type O diet for 5 years.  Met my boyfriend 3 years ago (also O-Non) and he is in medical field - read book and it all makes perfect sense to him. He was Kosher so I went Kosher. We enjoy cooking together, and have lots of good recipes.  Before we met he ate potatoes almost every day.  After he quit he had about three months of a healing crisis as his knee was swollen and painful but it finally disappeared and he has no issues with it.  We were both with Type A in previous relationship - not good for us.  We ARE TALKERS, he more than me.  We did the test for Secretor- Non and are Non's, but didn't realize until we just bought the Live RIght book last week and discovered that there were Avoids for Non's that were ok for secretors, so now we are adjusting our diet.  One great thing....we can now have Avocado's.  YEA!
