Here's one of those cases where a "Beneficial" food for one's bloodtype is "black-dot" for one's genotype: Bananas and the B-Nomad.

Before The Genotype Diet was published, I regularly bought and ate bananas.
And when I experimented with the Nomad diet thereafter, I had no trouble omitting them from my diet.
I have largely forgotten about them. I very, very rarely buy them at the grocery store.
For years now I enjoy them very rarely as fritters for Thai dessert, and that's it.

Well, this week I picked up a few bananas, and ... they strike me as a "starch".
They feel like plantains-lite, with a touch of sweetness.

I just consulted Live Right 4 Your Type and see that they are "Avoid" for the other Nomad bloodtype, AB. The Complete Blood Type Encyclopedia says that's because of a lectin/ agglutinin. Just wondering --if anyone really knows-- what the deal is with bananas for Nomads.

Since they are a black-dot, maybe they can occasionally be enjoyed as a sweet starch.

yes, as an infrequent neutral, when doing the basic nomad diet according to the book


why not consult swami instead and avoid the guess work

You distinguish between Intuition and SWAMI.
You think the latter is better, to avoid the former ("guesswork").
I'm "listening to my body".  

As for bananas:

Not crazy about them.
Don't need another "starch".
Happy to "black-dot" them.
Just wondering why they're downgraded for the Nomad.

...Anyone else find them "starchy"?

Bs and ABs can be nomads......important are your variables and health issues and genetics and all swami has factored into the interphase......

the fatigue book, suggests avoiding bananas for Bs.......interesting......

Interesting!

Right. For me, not icon-yucky, but plantain-y.

I guess I'd like the flavor in a banana cream pie, or within some other dessert-y context, with very ripe bananas. And I don't outright dislike them. But I don't mind favoring other fruits, let's put it that way.
Another option is, perhaps, actually using it as a plantain.
That explains why I go for them as fritters - with honey or   ice cream.....

I definitely feel fatigued after eating bananas. About half an hour after eating 1 banana, I feel like I need to take a 2 hr nap.
That's why I don't eat them.

Melatonin would probably be a better option.

The ratings for GTD are done with a computer algorithm that combines all the factors in a weighted fashion.

So there is no single reason. There may be one or a few influences that are greater than others.

Sorry it's not more intuitive.

If I recall correctly, bananas even made ME tired even though they are my bene. I last had a banana a month ago, and didn't like the way my evening turned out. A really listless-kind-of-tired.
