I'm loving how pineapple helps with digestion.  
I read about it in er4yt and it really works.

It is beneficial for us AB's, and also for A's and B's.

Yeah, I feel like I need to eat it regularly to keep things moving.  There are other fruits that seem to do that for me.  Plums, apples, grapefruit, kiwi, any fresh fruits, even frozen. Strawberries, blueberries.  All the fruits seem to help me with this I think.  Plus a salad with romaine every day.

Thanks for the tip about the romaine salad, what kind of dressing do you use?

There's a pineapple smoothie recipe for ABs in the NAP catalogue.

I think there's a pronounced flavor of pineapple in NAP's tea for type A's, too?
Check it out - perhaps a cup of that would be a nice digestif for you.

Olive oil.  That's it.  Although I have used walnut oil too.  That's good on a salad.  When I go to eat at panera, I just don't use any dressing.  They don't have just olive oil.

Not knowing what "panera" was, I googled it.
I ended up looking at its menu, and they have a "Greek salad" with their "Greek vinaigrette".
Vinaigrette is made with oil (usually olive), and a Greek vinaigrette, if authentic, definitely is, which means they've got olive oil in the pantry, unless the dressing is ( ) bottled.

I am new to this forum and to this new way of eating. AB+ here!! I've been trying this book ER4YBT for about 3-4 weeks now and I feel better (not bloated and so fatigued) BUT my question is...how long will this "diet" take? I may have lost a couple of pounds but I need to lose more. I am eating from the beneficial and neutral list, but still drinking 2 cups of coffee a day. Not sure if coffee is an avoid, some say yes, some say no. Lets keep this going so I can see how other AB blood type people are doing..

This "diet" is a healing diet.  Weight loss (or gain) will happen based on the body's priority during the healing process.  Expect to live with BTD, or a more advanced version for the rest of your life.        Once you feel the benefits, you will never want to go back to a standard diet...  

PS  I realize that the AB Avatars aren't all together, and that there may not be enough to choose specifically the information you know with having error, but it is better to show less information that is all accurate than to show errant information.  You can always add additional information in your signature or personal message space.

Welcome Chud!

I, too, am happy when I see AB blood types posting.  I have been absent from the BTD forum for a while, getting a new degree & job has swallowed most of my time in the last few years. If it wasn't for my husband's support, I would have been sunk.

Some advice I'd like to share from my experience is to:

     Concentrate on what we should eat, and not waste time obsessing over what we shouldn't have.

     Be sure you have the right foods for your blood type on hand (my day just isn't the same if I've run out of limes!).

     Read ingredient labels of packaged foods every time...they can change!

     Avoid becoming the food police for other members of your household, it is always better to make eating meals a positive experience.

Welcome again! Pleas do not feel you need to apologize for "simple questions" as it is good to see your progress on the learning curve. I think it's a valuable part of how we all keep learning from each other.

One meal probably won't hurt too much.  Hope you had a great time with your son...  just focus back on your beneficial foods and maybe pop a Deflect to help deal with the chicken lectin...

More and more restaurants are saving money by cutting their olive oil with some other kind of oil, so it pays to be cautious and inquisitive if it is important to you.

I know how you feel, I ate some chicken about a week ago during a special occasion where it wss the main dish.  I felt terrible afterwards.  Chicken is definitely an avoid for me, I get bad heartburn and feel like my food is stuck in my chest.  I can occasionally eat some steak and get away with it, but chicken will make me pay every time.

I try to avoid chicken altogether, but I plan to purchase some of those Deflect pills that have been mentioned, for the rare emergency.

I found a thread about salad dressings, apparently you can mix some lemon juice with olive oil for a good AB-friendly salad dressing:
http://www.dadamo.com/cgi-bin/Blah/Blah.pl?b-GC/m-1167497834/s-new/#num18

As a side note, it seems curious to me that vinegar is an avoid for everyone but B's, since it has been viewed as a beneficial drink since ancient times by so many cultures (ex: the ancient Romans carried it in flasks to add it to water or sour wine).  But anyway, if Dr. D says avoid, I trust him.

Lemon juice has always been too tart for me to use as a salad dressing.  I like to use a little sweeter compliant juice like pineapple or tangerine juice...

I hear you on the vinegar.  I don't eat it, but I miss it.  Plus, it is in other foods.  But that's why I don't usually eat dressings.  Personally, I think if a person ate it once in a while, it would be no big deal.  But therein lies the problem.  The foods in our society are always "laced" with something that is OK in moderation probably.  But it's like everything has it in it. Sugar being one of those.  So, I end up avoiding a lot of things.  Which is kind of a pain.  Yeah, the dressing at panera is all in one.  They don't carry just olive oil by itself.  

I actually am learning to be less anal and try things that are more "worldy".  I have been very particular and have avoided so many things to a fault.  I need to relax about some of it.  But the rest of my family like my Mom and sister are the opposite.  They loosely follow BTD, and will tell you they are being strict, but every time I see them eating they eat things I have avoided, and they should be too for the BTD.  But whatever.  We all have to figure out what works for us.  

I went to a Mothers Day Buffet at a Country Club this weekend and survived!!!  However, there were so many things I wanted to eat but was afraid to.  I still kept it relatively safe.  I had them make me an omelette with just mushrooms.  And the only veggies I had were potatoes.  Because everything else had onions mixed in.  And I didn't eat a salad, which I love, because I'm too grossed out by 17 million people sticking their hands all over everything.  I avoided fresh fruit because of that too.  But I had already had some for breakfast.  But my avoid thing was I ate half of a blueberry muffin.  Muffins are good because they are usually no horribly sweet.  I don't usually do well on too much sugar.  They had lots of other good desserts I would've liked to try, but I would've had a racing heart beat probably after eating something like that.  But I'm thankful that I survived eat at a buffet.  I was fighting anxiety about it, especially because of all the people.  It's just not comfortable for me to eat where everyone is touching the spoons and who knows what else.  Kids were there too of course and you know how they can be.  

My immune system must be getting better though.  Because praise the Lord I didn't get sick.  I had a pretty loose bowel that night, but it seemed like that was the worst of it.

I don't know about y'all, but -
Any European-style restaurant (i.e., the kind that offers "Greek Salad") that doesn't have any olive oil in its pantry sounds like one heckuva scary establishment to me!

Why?  The rest of the ingredients are fresh and it is a lot better choice to eat there than many places.  I just don't get any dressings.  It's just that simple.  Have you ever eaten at a Panera?  It has a been a huge blessing to me because it's one of the few places I could eat without feeling strange after going there.  But any restaurant you go to is going to be imperfect with their selections.  If I want to be compliant, I have to modify what they offer.

I love this dressing. I thought it would be to tart. But the garlic or rosemary must off-set the flavor somehow.

I believe it would be good for A/B groups.   The trick is to make the garlic, rosemary, lemon juice paste.

I used to do that.  But I just skip dressing now.  I really don't miss it that much.  Although some oil at a meal is probably a good thing.  I eat the potato chips with it, and they have oil.  So......
