Chia seeds were not a particularly common food when the blood type diet was developed.

For ratings of Chia use one of the more recent systems-SWAMI or GenoType.

Past comments on bee pollen indicate it is bad for A and and unknown (assume neutral-but check for reaction. Some are allergic.) for other types.

Use the search function to find out more if interested.

There is a thread here that allows you to add items to be investigated for the future..

Yet many more things have past that place in time..

yes swami will be more specific in some ways but not about the questions above.. at least not as far as I can see..

try either all alone and see how you react.. often it will tell you what is not good for you.


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!

If you were  following the Genotype Diet "by the book" you'd either be an Explorer, Teacher, or Warrior. Chia seeds are neutral for Teachers and Warriors and super-beneficial for Explorers. So, whatever your genotype, chia seeds would be neutral or better for you.  Therefore, it's safe to assume that chia seeds are fine for type A individuals.

I was advised bee pollen for helping with weight gain...and have had no problems. But wanted to check. I am A and the list says coconut oil is a big no-no.

I have been eating coconut oil for years. I have given it up to see if it improves my digestion, which is compromised by stress and medication.

I have sometimes used alternative methods, such as muscle testing. The been pollen muscle tested fine, but who knows? I will pay attention to my symptoms also in regard to it. Thanks everyone!

Bear in mind that the Blood Type Diet is not 100% perfect. We're all unique individuals, and blood type is not the only thing that makes us different. There are plenty of foods that are "good for most As" that some individual As just don't tolerate. Similarly, there are foods that are "bad for most as" that some individual As can eat with no problems- or even that are especially healing for them.

SWAMI is a computer program that calculates a personalized diet for each user. A great many people get coconut oil as neutral or better on their SWAMIs, even though, according to BTD, only O nonnies can have coconut oil, and there it's only neutral.

You may want to invest in a SWAMI at some point. If not, the simple knowledge that it exists is still helpful. You know that BTD isn't "the best diet in the world" and you may need to make some tweaks to your own diet. Muscle testing can be very useful when done properly, and it's as good as anything else for the unlisted foods and herbs.

Don't get me wrong- BTD is a wonderful diet and it's a great place to start. If you're getting overwhelmed or confused, then just stick to the BTD food lists and don't worry about GTD or SWAMI.
