wanthanee, these foods are not really very good for 'A's, potatoes, tomatoes, all that bread, stone ground whole wheat isn't very good for very many people - I have it as OK on my swami but I still rarely eat it.

I really like my swami BTW, it might be a very good choice for you boxer.


Hi, I am sorry. I forgot to notice which foods you should avoid.  Please eat the right foods for your blood type.  The foods I listed were just examples I copied from the book, Food Combining and Digestion.  

Here is an excerpt from Eat Right for Your Blood Type:

I would look at the ingredients. If the bread contains added gluten, I would definitely get rid of it.

If it does not contain added gluten, then I would still try to limit the amount of grains in the diet.

There may be a Spelt bread available where you live that will serve the purpose you seek.

If you cook it too hot you will create problems.




If you stir fry some vegetables to go with the tofu, I think it would be great.

Gladiatorboxing619,

I'm an A Secretor and I've tried about half a dozen times to incorporate tofu into my diet.  In smoothies, cooked it, etc.  I have parted ways with it.  I'd rather have edamame, the Japanese soy beans, that take a few minutes to cook and are a great snack.  

I'm not a bread baker myself but I believe Lola has a good idea.  It may be a bit of a challenge to you right now but who knows you could wind up on the Food Network with your own show or as a  contestant.  

Find an easy recipe and go for it.  No bread bakes that long.  The reason I am so proactive on this is because even though I don't make my own bread I found a place (too bad you don't live in Florida)
run by a German couple that use no additives.  The difference in taste is immense.  I have introduced people to this bread and they love it.  It is millet and flax seed bread.  Believe me the bread I get in health food stores pales in comparison to this bread.  I keep it in the freezer and take out slices to toast.  It keeps for at least three months in the freezer.

Give it a try.  You may come up with your own special recipe that is a beneficial for A's and we'll all be asking you for it.

too hot is > 350F ghee is a wonderful fat to cook with, it has a high smoke point, 485F

Spelt bread is not too bad a choice for type As, I feel better eating it than ezekiel bread

Type A may not eat red meat, but you still can have fish & poultry. I'm sure a little flesh food might move things along. Are you getting enough fat? Avocados might be a good raw source if they are on your list.
Also, you might consider alternating days of physical activity. I'm sure a book or someone can suggest what activities to do.
Also, there is the secretor vs. non-secretor issue.  Maybe you are a "nonnie" & will benefit by that diet.

Quoted from Seraffa
   I've never seen an A boxer before. Visions of brain damage leading to other complications flash before my eyes just reading this. Once a brain cell is dead, it doesn't come back. It just sits there.

But then again, I always stick my neck out in these forums.....


I suspect he is doing it as a form of exercise and not in a competitive sense.

Two different things.

If you're a boxer for exercise, not as a competitive thing, then you may want to adjust your workout schedule. Health-wise, you may do better alternating "intense" exercise days with "gentle" exercises, such as walking and yoga. Over-exercising (along with eating too little) can sometimes interfere with weight loss. Type A's need to be careful not to over-stress themselves. Too much physical stress and/or emotional stress (from bad relationships, poor work environment, etc) raises cortisol, which leads to weight gain/lack of weight loss in A's.

Definitely cut out the Ezekial bread if it has added gluten. 100% whole spelt bread is a good alternative. If you live near a Trader Joe's, you can buy their brand of spelt bread for $2.99 a loaf (unless prices vary regionally; that's what it costs in NY.) I've also seen similar products in health food stores for about $4 or $5 a loaf, but I can't remember the brand names because I never buy them.

If you are an explorer genotype, some of the A things will slow your metabolism.  Cortisol is a hormone all people release in response to stress, so stress reduction is important.  Eat plenty if you are burning calories.  I eat up to 4000 a day when active, and drink lots of water!!  Do cardio exercise some days to supplement your boxing techniques and some soft exercises like qigong to add power and focus to your techniques.

High heat frying may well be too hot.  Sliced or cubed tofu, sprinkled with a bit of Tamari, can be sauteed in a little ghee (low heat).

Ghee can handle a much higher temp (>400F) than olive oil (350F max), use olive oil as a 'dressing' not as a cooking oil
Frying is really not a good choice, sautéing is much better.

For weight loss you want aerobic exercises, not anaerobic. Boxing ought to be pretty good.
