Hey everybody,

i actually stumbled across this site, after i read the book about "eating for your bloodtype". I had my bloodtype tested in biology class 3 days ago, and i found out that i am 0 Rhesus Positive, so i  im secreter. Here is alittle about me, im 1.81 cm tall, big framed, about 105 Kgs, typically mesomorphic/Endomorph. I am strength training 4 times a week, with high intensity(60 minute sessions) along with steady state aerobics.  

Im also going to compete in a natural bodybuilding contest next year, and i want to adjust my diet to fit the 0 category, and try to see if it makes an overall difference in my health and bodyfat. Questions listed below:

How should my macros be set to? 55% protein 35% Carbs and rest fat? im currently eating 4000 kcals, and dropping bodyfat slowly and gaining hypertrophy.

Also since im not intersted in removing all carbs from my diet, i guess it would be okay if my carb consumption would be mostly brown rice and oatmeal??? Skipping the potatoes since they can cause havoc in my system according to the book.

And is it okay to incorporate a few cheatmeals in the week with the "no-no foods" for motivational purposes???

Im sorry if my English is abit off, im trying my best to write it in a readable way. Feel free to message me a private message aswell, and thanks for reading my questions.

Regards, Kenneth

It's good to know your blood type. O+.

Secretor status is not determined by blood type. It is a different test that only a limited number of labs are set up to run.

Welcome!

It's not healthy for anybody to have "no carbs at all" in their diets, not even Os. And Os who are active can safely eat more carbs than O's who are more sedentary. Even those who are on grain-free diets get some carbs from vegetables.

Brown rice and oatmeal are good, as are sweet potatoes, beans, onions, fruits, and other vegetables. Make sure you eat enough good protein and green vegetables.

I'm sorry I can't help you with the macronutrient ratios- I'm not a  bodybuilder and I personally focus more on portion sizes than calories or grams of carbs.

Hey guys,

thanks for the fast replys, i actually thought i would get an email when someone were replying to my message her, but guess not.

Okay actually them im pretty good with my diet sofar, im gaining muscle and loosing fat so thats amazing. I will definately find out my secreter status, do you guys know any places in Denmark where its possible to obtain that?

Is the SWAMI a diet program software, and does it tell me my ratios?

SWAMI gives you access to an online program where you enter your data, and then it computes a diet just for you. You can then download this diet report as a PDF file and store it in any electronic device you want and/or print it out. You need internet access to process it initially but you don't need to go online every time you check your food list.

SWAMI will not give you macronutrient ratios directly, but it will give you very specific portion size and frequency recommendations. You can either follow the portion sizes, or use that information to calculate macronutrient ratios if you prefer to be more scientific about it. You can go to fitday.com or a similar website and enter in a typical day's suggested food (how many grams of quinoa, how much beef, etc) and then see what the macronutrient ratios turn out to be. You can even do that with a few different variations on the food choices to get an average of what the ratios are for various options within the SWAMI guidelines, and then use those numbers.

For most people (ie, not body-builders) it's enough to know how many portions of which foods to eat each day. Focusing on macronutrient ratios or specific calorie or carb intakes makes things more complicated, creates stress, and may lead some people to make less-than-perfect food choices (such as eating more grains and fewer fruits, or cutting back on veggies if they overdid the grains at an earlier meal, etc.)I think that's why SWAMI doesn't include that information directly.

You don't need to figure out your genotype from the book to use SWAMI- many times SWAMI will give you a different genotype label than the book gives you, and anyway, the SWAMI diet is individualized and the genotype label isn't really important anyway.

The genotype book does explain the underlying science a lot better than SWAMI does, and is a good book to have, even if you don't plan on ever using the food lists in it.
