I've been on this new diet for four weeks and I'm not feeling better, in fact I'm feeling worse. The first two weeks were detox from tea and coffee but I thought that after that I'd be feeling better and sleeping better, which I'm not.

Any ideas anyone?

Let us know what you've  been eating now, and what your diet was like before.

It's possible that you're still detoxing. It's also possible that you're still eating some foods that aren't so healthy for you personally- you may have even increased your consumption of something "bad for you"  when you cut out something else.

A common example is cutting out dairy and replacing it with soy products. Some type O individuals do horribly on soy. Some do OK on soy itself, but react badly to many commercial soy products because of other additives. Some do OK on small amounts of soy but end up consuming WAY too much at first. Another common mistake is to use gluten-free products that are loaded with "avoids."

The key to this diet isn't to find substitutes for all the things you used to eat, but to develop new eating habits based on protein and veggies, and to limit "milk like products" and breads altogether.

As Ruthie said, please tell us what you are eating now so that we can help you fine-tune and figure out what might be best for you at this time.

feeling worse is not in my playbook..

what foods where you one before coming here?  

what are you eating NOW .  

what problems brought you here?

Welcome and all the best.


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!

I totally agree with that comment and I haven't been doing that. I used to eat a balanced healthy diet (lifetime Weight Watchers member)but now I've detoxed from caffeine and am avoiding all the avoids.  I've used almond milk for several years and limited my cheese and yoghurt intake and now I've cut out dairy and only have small amounts of mozzarella and goats cheese. To keep my weight in check I eat nuts sparingly, mainly buy organic fruit and veggies and free range meats and eat sprouted grain bread and I don't eat soy.

I was talking to my naturopath yesterday and she suspects that I'm still detoxing and that my adrenal glands are in need of some help.

Interestingly, I had a vitamin B12 shot yesterday and slept for six uninterrupted hours last night!

Thanks for the info.

Masie, the beginning can be the roughest time.  Your body is adjusting to a new way of relating with food.  If you are eating right for your own type, your body will begin to eliminate many things that are stored in your tissues and you may not feel settled.

My response when I was at that point in the early weeks and months of my blood type diet was to dive deeper into the fine tuning of my program.  Getting a secretor saliva test enabled me to see that I am a non-secretor and that required some adjustments in my food list.  After that, things began to improve more quickly.  

Deep healing takes time and we learn to look beyond the short-term quick fixes that most "diets" focus on.  This is a lifestyle of being kind to our bodies and not just eating a healthy diet by common standards but eating a healthy diet by our own specific body's needs.
