I am looking for people with my blood type to share ideas with, but would also like to learn how others cope with cooking for a house with all 4 blood types. It appears I will need to be a cater cook. I just learned my youngest child is B, and was very surprised. He has so many A like symptoms I thought he was going to be A liks his older sister. She never gets sick and has no allergies or mucous, and he has mucous galore, gets sick often and seems to have allergies. I would have guessed he was the A and she was the B instead of the other way around.

Any advise that would benefit a family with AB+, A+, B+ and O- would be a great start.

A little more about me, I have self studied eating habbits for years, and have had the blood type diet book (s) since 2010.

Welcome!

I'm cooking for Os and Bs, plus my personalized food list varies somewhat from the basic O diet my daughter follows, so I can somewhat relate. I don't have any As or ABs in the house, though, which does make it easier.

My advice is to plan shared meals around mutually compliant foods. Try to use the "beneficial for one, avoid for another" foods for meals you don't eat together. For most families, this means packing individual lunches for work and school and family dinners, while everybody grabs individual breakfasts while hurrying in the mornings. But if your family eats together at lunch and goes there own separate ways at dinnertime, then adapt accordingly. I imagine you'll be eating a lot of turkey and fish.

The above paragraph was assuming that everybody in the family is on board with BTD- which may not be the case. It's most important to focus on your own health and nutrition, so that you have the energy to help them. Other adults in the household get to choose for themselves how compliant they want to be- you can support, you can do the menu planning, food shopping, and food prep to help them, but you can't force anything. You certainly can't control what they eat away from home! Even with kids, unless you're feeding a toddler, you need to give the child some control over what they eat. Children are generally able to handle some "avoids" in their diets, as they have NOT been damaged by decades of eating the wrong things. For the sake of family peace, it's not always worth it to tell a child "no, you can't eat that- it's for another blood type in the family".

Im going to check out that blog next, thank you.

Ruth, I like how you put that last part. One adult and one almost adult in the house do not believe like I believe in the blood type diet, and my 2 year old has been ill a lot, so I am able to explain better why I want him to try to avoid (he's B type) peanuts, chicken and hot dogs, however I have to say, and eat more meat at the end of any sentence, so the O type in the house doesnt get too upset. He is very happy B should have venison. I wont cook it. Also Goat, Lamb, Mutton, Rabbit, and Venison are highly beneficial for my 2 year old, but no way am I cooking any of that. I just dont eat/cook that sort of thing, and wish Turkey was on his beneficial list.

What kind of mom would I be not to give peanut butter and hot dogs to a child under 5. Most children love those things. Because he has been ill, and even dairy is supposed to be a good choice, he has to avoid cows milk because of what it does to him. I believe its a sensitivity, rather than allergy, but only time will tell as allergies build in his blood. I can give him american cheese (he likes it) and yogurt. He drinks almond chocolate milk.

I was trying to think of a way to make Chili for the family. I have one of those crock pots with 3 portions. Im currently working on being vegetarian, though I will eat fish and may allow turkey eventually up to 2 x a week, and definately on thanksgiving. Im working on weight loss, and the book says meat can turn to fat because of the A in my AB. So for the Chili, perhaps the main ingredients can be split and the meat go as follows
A - chicken or turkey, cant have navy beans, can have pinto, no tomato
B - turkey, navy beans, cant have pinto, can have navy beans, no tomato
AB - tofu/turkey, pinto or navy beans okay, tomato

So Im left with making myself regular chili, or giving the kids tomato's and one of them getting beans they shouldnt have. I know my A type doesnt care about being strict on the diet, she's almost an adult and where I live legally she already is. I could make white chili, but beans still remain an issue unless I just make each portion for each person, which I may just do.

And this is just one meal - oy

The B toddler does need some meat in his diet. No, he does not need hot dogs! But if you do give him the occasional hot dog, it should be beef or turkey, not chicken or pork. But he truly doesn't need processed meat, and you can give him almond butter if you really want to give him something "peanut-butter like."

If the O and A in the family don't really care about BTD, then focus on yourself and your toddler. B and AB have a lot of mutually compliant foods, so emphasize those foods. I agree with your O husband (I assume the O on the family is your husband? Please correct me if I'm wrong) that the B baby does need meat in his diet. I doubt he'll be able to achieve perfect health without having red meat a few times a week. If you don't want to cook it, could another family member cook it? Could you purchase it already prepared?

I would not bother with navy beans- they taste just like great northern beans, and the northern beans are neutral for everybody. Pinto beans, black beans, and kidney beans at least have some flavor! Ditto on chicken- the flavor is similar enough to turkey, so why bother with a food that only half of you should be eating? Especially since it's an "avoid" for the 2 family members you have control over.

Is the 2yo still nursing? If so, I wouldn't worry about his dairy intake at all. If not, stick to "beneficial" dairy products for him, such as goat milk and yogurt (cow's milk is only neutral if he's a non-secretor, and anyway goat milk is less likely to cause congestion than cow's milk. Raw milk would also be a good choice, if that's available.)

He may benefit from cod liver oil to help boost his immune system. I wouldn't  give him American cheese; it's highly processed and not very nutritious. Mozzarella cheese, goat cheese, or cottage cheese are better choices. Of course, read labels carefully to avoid unwanted additives. It's also important to limit his intake of added sugars if he's been sick. What's in that almond chocolate milk you give him? He may be better off drinking water rather than some kind of "milk" if you can't find one that's fully compliant for him.

eta... I found my own answer about the onions: http://www.dadamo.com/typebase4/typeindexer.htm

Thanks for all the info. Your a wealth of knowlege.

Do you know about B and onions. My book doesnt have that on any of the 3 lists. I think I shall make a list of ingredients and 4 columns for the types, and focus on the AB and B, but try to help the A. She is having some stomach issues, so I want to try (super picky teenager). Lucky for me I do purchase almost all of the food and I havent bought pork hot dogs or any kind of pork in 20 years, unless you count eating out the occational slice of bacon or hot dog. You guessed the O in my family right.

The B baby I can use my nuwave to cook him steak or beef burgers, or even give him lunch meat. So wait, hamburgers and lunch meat are processed. Are they good or bad in the D'Adamo world of thought? The thing is, beef is the baby's neutral, and the beneficial ones I have never cooked and dont want to. Im talking about Goat, Lamb, Mutton, Rabbit, Venison. I think venison may be the only red meat in that list. Will he thrive if I cook him beef and turkey and none of his highly beneficials? He loves turkey burgers, lunch meat, turkey hot dogs, beef hot dogs, peanut butter, vegetables (puree), fruit, stir fry, ect...

Im supposed to avoid beef, and chicken, but something I read makes me think chicken is worse than beef for AB's, I dont know. I may occatinally eat steak, maybe once or twice a year. I can totally cook it and not want to eat it. Im ok with cooking chicken and not wanting it, too.

Speaking of chicken, you know the chicken in the can, well I used to get turkey like that at Sam's club. Is that safe, and do you know where it is sold? Sams doesnt carry it anymore. Down the road I may make turkey more for myself, and I believe all 4 of us will be okay on Turkey based meals.

The baby is NOT nursing for about a year now. I dont know much about the whole non-sectretor part of all of this.

The almond choc milk has too much sugar. It has his calcium in 2 8 oz glasses a day. I have recently started to go 50/50 choc/vanilla, but stopped that this past week because of a bad skin infection he got. He wasnt eating well or drinking milk well, so I took a small break in my efforts. I also add strawberry to vanilla, for less sugar. The doctor couldnt test him, but mentioned staff infection and a skin infection. He's on a sulfer antibiotic, as he does have a reaction to amoxicillian. The babysitter doesnt exactly cook as healthy as I do, I had to stop providing milk over there, as she would give him too much (so she said) but the amount I provided was enough for 1 8oz glass a day and she said she was giving him 2. So for the sake of the lack of space in her fridge, I give him the milk in the morning.

Im so disappointed in some people sometimes, for example I have to now add sugar to some foods for my baby because my sitter wouldnt cook/serve without it and my baby likes her food better than mine. Who gives a 1 year old brown sugar and butter in his oatmeal when the parent provides the kind she wants her kid to eat. I didnt realize there was little/no nutritional benefit in american cheese. I will try to find mozzarella slices, see if I can get away with that, if he will eat it. Perhaps I need to find low fat mozzarella. Any suggestions of something to add to eggs besides american, that he will like more than how the sitter cooks them?

His recurring illness' have been mostly fevers every 2-4 weeks all last winter. He kept getting some kind of sinus or ENT type infection. Once he was old enough for benedryl and nasal spray (he's rather big for his age so he started at 1 & 1/2). He's now 2 and weigh's 36lbs while hes 35 inches. He always had a clear runny nose, that would not quit. It was worse if I offered him milk.

He also gets frequent rashes with illness, but not of the sensitive skin from contact with things type. He has had huge bumps from misquito bites, to the point that he has bad swelling if I dont give benedryl. I prefer not to give medicines if they are NOT needed.

ah- I didn't realize he was in daycare during the day. Having another adult feeding him does make things harder, especially since she clearly does not share your nutritional philosophy, AND he's seeing other kids eat  that kind of food. Lots of kids don't have to deal with "peer pressure about food" until kindergarten. You may have to make some compromises.

I have no problem with adding butter to oatmeal- fat is good for developing brains and is harmless for a B. Fattier foods are also more filling and cause the whole meal to be digested more slowly, making for more stable blood sugar. I go for the full-fat cheeses for my own family, only buying low-fat if the full fat isn't available or is WAY more expensive. Could she give him honey and butter in his oatmeal instead of honey and brown sugar? Honey is fine for Bs, and is definitely a healthier choice than sugar. I know that my B son gets sick easily if he eats too much sugar, too many days in a row, but does not get that reaction from honey.

Calcium is over-rated, especially since most people ignore magnesium. I get my minerals from food sources that contain everything in natural balance- such as greens and bone broths. I never use calcium-fortified anything, as it can lead to magnesium imbalance. He may do well on goat milk-  but if he won't drink it plain, don't force it.

I think he won't drink the unsweetened milk because his body knows better- the milk or the packaged milk substitute isn't what his body needs, so he only finds it palatable with lots of added sugar. I'd suggest giving him water to drink, and make up  the calories with whole foods. He could benefit from a probiotic and/or lots of fermented foods, especially since he's been on antibiotics. His gut needs to repopulate with the "good germs" so that he can naturally keep the "bad germs" at bay. The skin rashes are likely a sign that his GI system (the skin inside his stomach and intestines) are compromised as well.

It's hard with a child who's developed a taste for processed meats. some of the processed meats aren't too bad- read the labels and see what's in each specific product. And it's doubly hard that you can't just offer him all natural foods and give it a few weeks for his taste buds to reset- because other adults in his life will continue offering the junk. If there's processed meat at daycare, chances are he'll end up eating some, even if it's only offered to the other kids.

Ruthie has written so many clever things
B´s are lucky they can eat beef/veal/buffalo/turkey -sure it is neutral- but it is far better than no meat at all. I eat those meats 95 % of the time.
For a B child fat diary is very important- so look out for the best butter you can get- full fat natural yoghurt-good full fat cheese- look for the best you can get.

I would say avoid all veggie oils( soy, corn, sunflower etc) except Olive oil for B´s
avoid all corn products -look for hidden sources like high frutose syrup, starch and oil
avoid all chicken

That is the most important for B´s in my opinion when I stopped eating vegetable oils and chicken I stopped having non stop ear infections as well as allegies.

I find this all very interesting.

I dont know if my relationship with my sitter will remain in tact if I ask her to use honey, not brown sugar, and when I find out later she didnt do it after all. I may just make it and then talk about how much he loves it and go from there. I so wish I could stay at home and focus on this stuff, however then I probably wouldnt be the one buying the food.

Should I avoid tomatoes for the baby? Tomato sauce (spaghetti) cooked has so many benefits. I can get him to eat spagheti squash with sauce. I can do an alfredo sometimes, but it gets old week after week.

What substitues can I give for calcium, from whole foods instead of substitues added to foods?

I try to make sure everyone gets evoo every day, its my favorite fat. I do try to go fat free, but add it back in moderation. I wonder if being logical like this is really the best way, truth and logic arent always the same thing, but my mind tends to go with logic must be true so I have to take a step back to figure out whats really best. I may need to look for the full fat greek yogurts again. He eats the greek stuff like yoplain or Fage, but the store I shop at refuses to put the full fat on the shelf. I may need to special order it again instead of making sure he gets evoo.

Henrietta, I do avoid those other oils. Also I am AB and trying to go without meat, to help weight loss. The A part of my AB gives me low stomach acid. The B baby has been on meats since he turned 1. Mostly he gets turkey burgers, turkey or beef hot dogs, chicken (which Im not stopping). I just got his blood type kit Saturday, I begged the doctors to test him, but they said no because I was an RH+. I should have tested sooner. As for wheat and corn, I plan to remove that from his diet.

It's up to you how strict you want to be with his diet, and how much you want to shake things up with the sitter. Tomatoes are OK if he's a B non-secretor, but not if he's a B secretor. Therefore, since tomatoes are OK for "some Bs" it may not be a food to focus on right now. Chicken, however, is just about THE most toxic food for a B's system. If you make no other changes, I'd cut chicken out of his diet- or at least minimize it as much as possible. If you don't cook with chicken at home, but he gets some at the sitter, that may be a workable compromise for now.

I'd try talking to the sitter about how he's been sick and the doctor wants him on a special diet to keep him healthy. You do NOT need to specify that it's Dr D'Adamo, and not the local pediatrician, making these dietary recommendations. Alternatively, feed him the best you can at home and let her feed him what all the kids are eating when he's there. It's really up to you.

How long do you intend to keep him with this particular sitter? If you're planning to move him to a school-like daycare center when he turns 3, and his birthday is only a few months away, it may not be worth making any changes in his current location. But if you plan to keep him there for months or years, then you want him eating well while he's there, and you want ALL the adults who care for him to feed him properly.

You could add a little cream to the low fat yoghurt.
Here in DK it has been very hard to get full fat organic yoghurt -so I sometimes do that.
Greek style youghurt with fresh berries are great

tomatoes
- in general tomatoes are not great for B´s however if he is a non secretor they are neutral.
I personally eat a little tomatoes every August/september ( I grow them for my O that is my choice - I find I have no real reactions to them. I understand it can be very difficult to avoid completely  

Chicken
please please consider to get that out of his diet - it is far more harmful than the odd bacon/hotdog -it is my absolutely nr 1 avoid  

I would never fear fat - fat is necessary especially to a growing B child. Fat is not at all the villain it has been known as.

After I gave up my low fat vegetarian diet and eat a low grain/sugar - high fat B diet - I have lost weight and all my numbers are much better.

Ruth, I may have to do some planning and just start packing his lunches again, for the sitters. I have many struggles with opinions from the 'O' in the family, who is against daycare centers and somewhat wants to home school, but in the end I think Ryan will end up in school at age 6. He turned 2 this month. We might get him into all day Pre -K at 5 in 3 years.

I probably just need to accept that my sitter will disappoint me, and ask her to try my suggestions and talk to her about what he's eating and how I can make it so he eats healthier. I need to figure out what is best for him. Maybe for this week I can simply ask her not to feed him chicken and provide a substitute for those chicken nugget days. I wish I had the list of foods he ate come home every day.

I only hesitate because I feel like it will harm our friendship, however my feelings dont matter, my son does, so I think I need to put that aside. I almost moved him to another lady, then after interviewing her and talking to her for a couple weeks found out some very bad things, and she was telling me lies. It freaked me out so I didnt change him. My sitter is a good person, she just wants to take the easy plan and I am high maintenance when it comes to my child and my nutrition. Plus I know no one who agrees with all of this stuff before now at least. Im happy for this board.

Henrietta, I have the baby (ryan)'s dad 75% on board with avoiding giving him chicken. I agree with you 100%, and I need to also avoid. I told Ryans dad how toxic it is, and now that we know he's a B if he has to take him to Wendy's/McDonalds (which I disagree with) get a burger, NOT chicken. I hope he will listen to me. I told him no more than once a week fast food, and I got away with that. I also encourage subway.

Ryans dad is the type that thinks he's going to die when and how he's going to die, so why try to improve life in the process. We are very incompatible really, but we stay for some reason unknown to me.

Is there a way to guess if Ryan is a secretor or non-secretor?

Cream? What type? I hear cream and think of that stuff people use in coffee. I dont drink coffee.

Real heavy cream  withnothing added- I know you have to watch what you buy in US - but my guess would be a organic cream if you can get it.
something like this
http://www.organicvalley.coop/products/cream/heavy-whipping-cream/pasteurized-16-oz/
Dont know the brand- I am in Europe

Just do your best and try to get more and more real foods into your/his diet.

I will look at the store for that, thank you.

I just spoke to the sitter, who actually gave him chicken for lunch. I have a good relationship with her and we both told each other the other one is nuts for caring/not caring about this stuff and in the end next week Im going start packing his lunches. She will do breakfast, and not add sugar to oatmeal. I must have not understood how she makes it, it is the packet with brown sugar, not added sugar. They usually have eggs and cheese, or buscuits and honey, or oatmeal and sometimes cereal, but usually not wheat, usually sugary cereal (yuck). I dont understand why people would feed little kids stuff like that, but I accept people, just get disappointed.

I also talked to Ryans dad, and he will eliminate chicken, wheat and corn.

It really feels like everyone else in real life is against this, even if its only a few people I share this stuff with. Im so thankful for this message.

I prefer Ruth. I went with "ruthiegirl" as my name on this message board because it's a nickname a friend used to call me in college (only one person called me that) and at the time I wanted to be somewhat anonymous online. I'm now a blogger here (with my real full name) and active on Facebook (again with my real name) and both of those are linked to my account here, so I just take it as a given that anybody I know in real life (sister in law or next door neighbor) may find my posts here, and I post accordingly. Anything too private doesn't get posted, period.

It sounds like you've reached a good compromise with the sitter. Having your child with somebody you trust is very important- even if you disagree on some stuff, it's WAY more important that you trust her on things like discipline. Packing his own food from home is simpler all around- she just feeds him what you've packed and she can offer the "easier" foods to the rest of the kids. I pack my kids' lunches every day too- on VERY rare occasions my son will buy a snack at school- but when he does, it's a special treat, not "the usual routine." It also comes out of his own money (appropriate at age 11, but not at 2.) After a while, he'll get used to eating home-packed meals and not expect to eat what the other kids eat. He may not always LIKE it, but he'll adapt because that will become the norm for him.

In the end, sneaking the occasional chicken nugget (and eating whatever c**p they serve at a birthday party) isn't going to do him much harm. What you want to do is establish healthy habits for *most of the time.*

You also need to internalize the fact that a B needs to eat significantly differently than an AB. A very low-fat diet is appropriate for you, but your son needs much more fat in his diet. If he ever needs to lose weight, he should  limit his carbs, not his fat intake. (But you don't put a toddler on a low-carb diet- I'm talking about what he would do when he's an adolescent or older.) For now it's enough to make sure he has enough veggies and protein, and then carbs to fill in the gaps.

Thanks Ruth, I like your style.

You too Henrietta.

I love the chunky monkey boy he has become. And Im so glad I found out some of the fats and stuff is not the best for him. Im talking about coconut for my B baby, and I will look for the cream.

Off to go home, more tomorrow.

You are doing a great job  
It is always hard for a mum with a different BT than her child to really grasp her childs needs

When my daughter was 2-3 years old I was vegetarian 90 % of the time
- and I was so frustrated with her eating all the butter, eggs,cheese and veggies but saying no to wheat bread and yoghurt- She would beg for meat in the stores instead of sweets- One time she kept putting steak in my shopping basket  
so it was no surprise to me that my little cave" child " was a O

I had to compromize all the years she was looked after by other people - She had more wheat and dairy than I would prefer...but it made it even more important that she had the right food at home- and sometimes I would send her a food bag with rye bread, spelt bread/cookies and almond milk.

I use spelt a lot- white spelt taste almost like wheat.
For your B- regular white wheat is not great - but it is better than wholewheat, rye, corn, buckwheat etc.
So If he sometimes get a little white flour it is better than the corn.

Hi, Tami  

Quoted from Tami

I just spoke to the sitter, who actually gave him chicken for lunch. I have a good relationship with her and we both told each other the other one is nuts for caring/not caring about this stuff and in the end next week Im going start packing his lunches.  I dont understand why people would feed little kids stuff like that, but I accept people, just get disappointed.



By following your requests, the sitter may see some positive changes in your son. The change in her (and your) routine may seem like a burden at first, and your son may resist trying new things, but it will pass. Stay positive. You're on a good track caring for your family this way.


Quoted from Tami

It really feels like everyone else in real life is against this, even if its only a few people I share this stuff with. Im so thankful for this message.


Don't let uncurious people get you down. A lot of us, if not all of us here, have been through it. Many will see your good results. Some may become your ally.

Good Morning
I did tell my sitter white bread isnt wheat, and its okay. I think that was a small common ground. She's so against it all. When people in real life push like that, it makes me feel weak for some reason. I hope to find my strength here (:. Ive been on another board for years, and for what it was for it gave me so much strength. Im still on there, but never had found people like me on diet issues. Some are sorta like me, and they love the whole diet, blood type, and infertility connection.

Is there a way to get email notifications for replies to threads?

thank you thank you thank you. This sitter/friend I do not think she will come around, but I hope others will. I do keep to myself a lot in real life, but when the time comes and I lose the rest of this extra weight, I know people will ask. I will likely stick to talking online about the diet, and at home. My 17 year old is a great listener, goes with her A attributes.

This has been a very  interesting thread. Ruthie & Henriette are right on about their advice.

But I don't know why the babysitter is not more helpful in what you want the child to eat.  Before BTD or knowing much about nutrition, I certainly would respect a parent's info about how to care for their child & would obey their rules.
I noticed that many type Bs do poorly on dairy products even tho they are 'allowed' on the diet.

I also come from a 4-type family, but found out about BTD when my kids were grown. I noticed that my AB husband didn't like chicken too often & preferred beef. He also has many days where he eats no meat (therefore is very economical!).  I'm the one who can polish off a pound of meat easily!

My A son ate meat but not as much as the others. As an adult, he eats lots of ready made foods, but will also eat veggie burgers, etc. He will soon marry a vegetarian & respects that. I do worry about her as she eats lots of dairy with no outward effect. She will eat an occasional egg, I think.  As a BTDer, I wish she would eat fish & poultry at least once a week, but I can't control people in their 30s! The good thing is that she eats lots of veggies!!

I'm glad you found this forum. You will love it & get lots of good info!

Mrs T, I am from Chicagoland. My oldest lives in Carol Stream. How are the temperatures this week?

I stopped trying to make other adults do anything they dont want to do. I hope your daughterinlaw to be comes around. Im with you on respecting other parents wishes. I would make a great babysitter, but instead I have a desk job in tech support for a medical software company. The pay isnt the greatest in my area, but the cost of living is. One example, a 2br 1ba appartment here is $450 a month. My son pays twice that in chicagoland. I do think fish can be very important in the diet. This whole no turkey no meat thing I've been doing for 2 weeks is not bothering me at all. Im going to start buying the baby steak for over at the sitters. I bet she wants steak after that. I will likely alternate steak and fish for the little guy.

I need to look into calcium rich foods. I think I remember. Im very strict on not getting too much calcium, and getting just the right amount.
