Can I ask why the blood type diet is not way more recognized? So after recently graduating school as a holistic nutritionist and learning about all different dietary styles. I have been asking many of my friends what foods make them feels their best and then what blood type they are? Well no surprise, all my thriving vegan friends are A's and all my meat loving friends are O's!!!I
So I decided to pulled my copies of the BTD and GTD  books back out from years back and have spent the last few days rereading them from cover to cover. It is like I am reading my body through a crystal ball, how did I not notice this years ago. Not ready I guess, Dr D explains me to a tee, its crazy. I finally thought what have I been waiting for, went through my kitchen cleaned it all up and reloaded with beneficial and neutral foods, I am lucky as my hubby and kids are Os too. I am so excited to really give this a go after years of flip flopping and so desperately wanting to be vegan but not feeling my best that way. From now on when I see clients I will be
asking them their blood type as part of helping me build their way to healing.

I agree, I can also tell by what people choose to eat.  My husband is a bit sceptical but I only have to point out the foods which I need to eat more (meat) and the things he likes - which don't agree with me (pickles, vinegar, etc) eta: he's a B secretor btw.  Also, I remember from being a young girl always wanting meat, meat all the time and I was only a picky eater and skinny little thing, my parents even said as I got older that meat was all I was bothered about on my plate!

It's funny because every time I used balsamic vinegar I would get a headache. And I mentioned on another forum once a long time back this was happening and someone said I have never heard of this, it can be the vinegar. But I knew it was as it only happened after I ate the salad with the vinegar and sure enough, vinegar is a no no!! Our bodies really do know if we listen.....

Lisa might want to look into doing SWAMI for your patients. You can also get one for yourself.

As to why this is not more recognized-- evil forces are at work to make diet one size fits all.

The vegans, paleo, ADA etc all think they are right and they are but not for everyone.

Agendas exist for selling products and information.

Welcome to the wonderful world of individualized diet and health.

Lisa,, you're in a great position to influence BTD/GTD awareness.

At my local HFS, I regularly speak with a few (excellent) people who share your educational background, and although they're receptive to the concept, I feel a certain resistance. I'm afraid they sense that it would add an unfamiliar complexity to their training and practice. Quite the contrary, I say, given the effectiveness of Dr. D's approach. I've suggested the books and web site, but, horse to water...

I wonder if you or anyone here has any suggestions for approaching these "front line" folks that so many of us encounter in such places.

Also curious what you're practicing?

I wish my wife would get on board.


My SWAMI diet is a blend of BTD and GTD Explorer, but I'm not totally compliant.  Also I try to choose foods that have a Low Glycemic index.  DW and DD are A+, probably also Explorer.

A lot of people aren't willing to make the effort to eat this way.  I've heard so many times some variation of "I want to eat what I want." or "It is so hard to stay on that diet." or "I could never give up my chicken."

Also, many Dr.s, even some holistic type practitioners, are not comfortable with the concepts, etc...  They aren't willing to "live" it, so they aren't comfortable asking patients to, either...

I think that in order to be ready to give up old erroneous diets, people must have first some idea and an updated picture of the human organism. As soon as one understands what he is dealing with, i.e., that it is not just a pretty figure with pipes and ducts and organs inside, as they appear in school books drawings, but 5 trillions cells, each of them crying to be taken care of and be nurtured properly so it can survive, like 5 trillions babies, one will get up like a lion and start doing something in this direction. A human being is also a wise creature, who knows deep inside when he is ignorant and neglected, conditions which usually drive him to desperation. When he sees some light, he actually runs toward it. Dr. D's diets make sense when they appear in the context of the knowledge on which they are built; like understanding cellular processes as methylation and acetylation, red blood cells structures, our symbiotic existence with bacteria, etc etc such wondrous phenomena. The barrier to get to these diets is the prevailing ignorance perpetuated by obtuse minds. There may be simpler words to describe this.

People have actually heard of it, but they've heard probably more inaccuracy and lies than anything else. The includes from the people that follow it, unfortunately. The material is just dense; far from being fully accessible like a simple chart of vitamins, proteins, fats, and grams.

Yet SWAMI has left these shortages behind. My experience with SWAMI is right the opposite.

But it's still "information dense" in the sense that I have to learn how I can eat best, which varies from what each of my daughters eat best, which varies widely from what the best diet is for my son. I can't just "make healthier changes" by eating more beef- because the amount of beef that makes me energized is "too heavy" for my kids. I can't just "change to healthier beans" for the family because the ones that are good for my B son are bad for the Os in the family, and vice versa.

We all benefit from eating more produce and cutting out processed foods. But the specifics vary widely.

rg makes another winning point:
Any diet that isn't about one's Real Life Situation is not really the "best" diet for that person.
It is up to each of us to prioritize and live with our choices.
