Go to Whole Foods Market and try to whisk through the Prepared Foods counter (both hot and cold) and all the self-service tables / offerings.

Chicken-City.

But don't worry. Anything that doesn't have chicken in it is very likely to be particularly tomato-heavy.

Well I love tomato sauce (I love italian food).  
I guess for B-Secretors tomato is an avoid, but for me as an AB-non it's beneficial (cancer fighting super beneficial even!).

Well, no I don't miss the side afffects either.  But I loved the way it tasted.  I miss fried chicken more than sweets probably.

I was thinking about it today and wondered what it would be like if all AB's and B's knew that chicken was something they should avoid.

What effect would it have on stroke rates nationwide, and on health care costs overall?  

I bet the improvement would be astounding.

This will probably never happen though since many people don't even know what blood type they are.

Plus, chicken is touted as a "healthy" meat.  But most of them are raised so poorly.  Even if they are good for your blood type, the run of the mill chicken is kind of a scary deal.  Now organic or farm raised ones that are mass produced would be a whole lot better deal.

India/Pakistan/China are loaded with Bs and ABs. Russia, too, the further East you go moreso. They also eat plenty of chicken. If you're curious about this, then compare various disease rates there with countries much lower in B/AB incidence.

That's the cool thing about the B allele (OK, one of many cool things): It's more localized than the A. If chicken consumption is significantly statistically related to a certain disease in B/AB subjects, you can find B/AB-heavy countries where chicken is eaten and track/guesstimate it, to a degree.

If you're interested, the Ainu people of Hokkaido have the highest rate of AB of anyone on earth - something like 20%! That's be a really interesting sample for you. Find out if they eat chicken!

Someone mentioned increased risks of blot clot or stroke & although I don't have the solution I just try to maintain a high pH. I generally consume anywhere between 75-85 oz of water per day, which should keep the blood alkaline.

Also to not miss foods like chicken, shrimp, ice cream, etc., I sometimes substitute "High's" with "Neutrals" to curb the withdraw. For instance, I noticed some of you eat rice cakes, but I'd rather just eat the bread the you would normally get, which would be a "neutral". It's translated by the body as food rather than medicine, but before ER4YT, you were probably doing this 33.3% of the time anyways. My "highs" probably total 80%, 15% "neutral" & 5% "avoid".

Plus if my desire for the "avoids" reaches a dangerous point, I'll just reset the body through a fast. By the time I'm finished I'm over joyed to return to food regardless if it's back to my traditional AB diet. That feeling can stay up to 3-4 months. Also your taste buds are harmonized in the sense that your "Highs" will taste like filet mignon.

Hi All

I'm a 57 year old male with arthritis, spinal stenosis, bulging disks with obesity ( have lost 75 pounds since April 30). I am an AB- and just found out about the BTD this past Saturday. I ordered the erfyt book and have done a lot of reading in this website as I am in rehab for physical therapy. I was eating chicken, shrimp, with the occasional hamburger as Iwas following Atkins and did lose weight but felt terrible. No energy and anxious with my mind feeling cloudy. I am looking forward to reading the book and learning as much as I can.


I will choose a path that's clear. I will choose free will. -RUSH

Hello AB's!

I tried the diet for three months back in 2006 & felt so wonderful! I stopped because I found out I was pregnant(without partner) & was working FT so was too tired to keep up with it. I've just gotten back to it in the past 2 months & am noticing the benefits once again!

I'm so happy to have found this thread!!! I still want to find out my secretor status & Genome info, etc.

I just read all your posts & they are very informative & inspirational! The only tip I can offer at this time is I've really noticed the benefit I've gotten from drinking teas throughout the day: Chamomile, Dandilion, one called Breathe Easy from Traditional Medicinals(I think the name just changed to Herbal Tussin). Also, I don't know the beneficial status of it but I've been drinking Yerba Mate instead of coffee with great results & it tastes great!!!

If anyone knows the beneficial status of Yerba Mate please respond to this! Dr. D if you can answer this that would be MUCH appreciated!!!

Fabulous finding this page!  I am getting used to the eating more veggies per day.  It is a great encouragement finding this and other pages for BT AB!

I have been borderline hypertensive since my 20's and never understood why.  Especially since I have been very active and fit.  One day in the late 1990's I picked up the ERFY BT and found out the reason why.  Still learning and wanting to learn more and be healthier.

Thank you all and I look forward to hearing more and learning much.

No doubt! I was astonished at how much better I felt switching to turkey.

Good to see you here Naomi,  xcaribecab and Tammy!  

And whatever happened to jodi1031,  Th3pr3dit0r and SnowmanR?

Sorry that I didn't see this post until now...

I have cut all vinegar components out of the diet.  It is difficult at first, but I feel so much less abdominal pain because of it.

In place of any favorites, I use some other beneficial food from my lists.  I first tried to eat like I had, but it was difficult to remake all of the same meals with all different ingredients, so I ultimately read enough cookbooks/menus/etc. looking for dishes that incorporated beneficial foods from my lists.

Most of my condiments are homemade, as pre-made dressings, etc. usually have vinegar, corn syrup, spices, or gums added that I do much better without.

I do most meals with whole foods and individual spices (or spice mixes where everything is compliant) and mix beneficial or neutral foods that go together to make tasty (to me) meals.

There are many recipes in the Recipe Center that others have shared to help each of us find dishes that are much more compliant than "standard fare".  Try searching there for ideas.

Hi, I'm a new member with AB negative secretor blood. I just ordered the SWAMI software and will be figuring out my genotype soon. I don't have any current health issues, but a family history of high cholestorol, heart disease, blood clotting issues, stroke and cancer. Already, I've eliminated chicken and shrimp which I was eating a lot of recently as part of a "healthy diet" to loose weight.

I'll be doing a lot of reading here..

Take care
