Well you guys are going to bank rupt me.
Ive bought the swami xp, geno typing kits, secretor kits, books now im buying a lifestyle which will mean a new wardrobe I HOPE!!!

I have tested my 3 childrens blood type and we all share the same RH-O.

So since im adicted to researching this in the hope of eliminating conditions and diseases like endometriosis, ibs etc in my family. the pro's are im not cooking 4 seperate meals and shopping will be easier as well as only having one of dr Damos cook books open at once.
Ive also decided if im going to do this its going to be done right, the whole family will be living according to their blood type o. So out with all the grains and harmful foods, in with the organic, fruit veg, fish, poultry and meet. Thank you Dr Damo i may now neeed to rob a bank haha, i shant tell my partner as he wants to eat and drink c**p, maybe if he sees myself improve and come back to life as well as my eldest who has more serious problems such as endo and ibs now being over weight he may well just join in. Then ill have to leave him for some one richer as we can afford to live it up for all 5 of us haha

Welcome!

If you truly can't afford all the organic food, you may need to cut your food budget and prioritize which foods need to be organic and which foods are "safer" to buy conventional. However, it sounds like you DO have the money but your budget priorities have changed and you're not quite used to the changes yet.

You can control the food you purchase and prepare, but you can't control what others buy away from home. You can control what toddlers and preschoolers eat, but you can't  fully control another adult or even a teenager's diet. And you may not even have full control over a baby's diet if you share control with another adult who's not on board with you. You'll need to discuss with other adults in the household about "bringing junk food into the house."

How old are the kids?

yes thats is exactly right, Lee she is 17, chloe  is 14 in 6 days , ella (my partners daughter who only comes at weekends is 8 and Carmen is 6.

Lee suffers from IBS and endo (undiagnosed but my sister is going through the tests/same symptoms), her weight is now over 16 stone and she is desperate to start this. Ive told her to join the forum. We are hoping the diet will help her IBS symptoms and Endo symptoms and prevent her from gaining any more weight in the hope it comes down gradually also.

Chloe is very atheletic like i was at her age but shes getting the achey bones and has seen how Lee is suffering, shes very interested in what im upto with this so ive explained the history etc and she is very keen to keep her good health living by this.

Carmen - Well she just wants the needle again somehow lol????  (i told her she was having a stamp done on her finger, she wants more stamps the others/elder ones were big babies lol)

Elle - i havent tested her yet but she has bad bellies (cant drink orange juice even squash she gets really ill) often and takes reactions so im hoping my partner will opt to have her blood typed.

I may swap the horse for a cow lol cheaper lol x

It will be hard to  change the diet of kids who only live with you part time. You can certainly clean up their diets while they're with you, as they'll be eating at the other house the rest of the time. Unless all the adults work together, her diet isn't going to change significantly.

Sometimes kids improve just by eating better part of the time. Other times, there's one (or more) food that needs be be 100% eliminated for several weeks before symptoms will really improve- such as artificial  colors for ADD or ADHD. It can be very frustrating to try and help a child and be thwarted by your ex and/or your ex's new partner.

So the youngest is with you full time and only the 8 year old is with the other parent during the week? Or are the younger two only there on weekends?

If the 6 year old is with you full time, you pretty much can control what she eats. If you want to be careful with her diet, you should pack all her school lunches and snacks and instruct the teachers not to feed her anything that wasn't sent from home. (If she's in school- if you're home schooling her, you don't have to worry about that.) The occasional slice of birthday cake isn't likely to cause   much harm to a healthy child who's eating right the rest of the time.

I'd take the same approach with the teens as with your partner. Educate and support, but don't force. If any of them want to buy junk away from home (the teens with their own money) you can't stop them. But if they realize that they will feel better by eating better, they'll willingly make better choices when out with friends.

Its only Ella that lives with us part time, but holidays we tend to have her pretty much full time.
The other 3 are all mine and live with me full time.

So could you suggest a lunch box for type O. Ive purchased the type o cook book so there may be ideas in that but it hasnt arrived yet

I usually send Hannah to school with a sandwich on spelt bread- sometimes mozzarella cheese, other times tuna salad. Egg salad or thinly sliced meat such as turkey or roast beef would work too. When she was in middle school (and had a real lunch period) I would often send a thermos full of soup. Dinner leftovers can work in a thermos too.  For snacks I usually send her baby carrots and hummus, but in the past I've also sent apple sauce or a piece of fresh fruit.

My type B son likes rice and beans; cooked brown rice plus kidney beans with melted cream cheese or goat cheese. If my type O daughter wanted something similar, I'd use black beans and goat cheese with the rice.

I also keep quite a few "compromise foods" in the house. Many of them are fully compliant for the B (which is how they ended up in the grocery cart in the first place) but the Os eat them too and I don't have the mental energy to fight with them on it- we're still talking about real, whole foods. Hannah likes yogurt with homemade  granola, and  crisp rice cereal with real cow's milk. Chocolate crisp rice cereal is an occasional treat. When Leah was home, she regularly drank coffee with whole milk added. If the only thing the milk was used for was coffee, I'd buy heavy cream instead- especially if it kept other family members off of highly processed "creamers."

Yup, you'll get a new wardrobe. But for awhile you'll be wearing clothes too large and everyone will remark how good you look!

At first I worried about the cost differential of eating organic. Now I believe it's the best investment decision I've ever made. Health-promoting food should really not fall into the discretionary spending column.

And compared to the processed food so many people (unfortunately) eat, wholesome organic is much cheaper.

That's the spirit! All the better if you can drag something out of storage that you've been unable to wear for awhile. Always good to have your own personal cheering section...

In addition to Dr. D's new cookbook you might want to check out whfoods.org for comprehensive nutritional information about and ways to cook over 100 of the world's healthiest whole foods.  You can also buy George's "World's Healthiest Foods" book either through his web site or on Amazon if you are in the USA.  It has become my "Food Bible"!!!        

(Of course not all blood types can eat all of the foods listed in the book/on the web site and George readily acknowledges that some people have different needs and tolerances from what others have.........his way of giving a nod to the Blood type program without coming out and mentioning it by name.)  

P.S.  I faithfully follow the food lists on this web site and also found in Live Right 4 Your Type.  I use George's book for all the other information I need about the foods I actually consume.


Almost 6 years on ER BTD, went from sick and dying to healthier And 30 pounds slimmer.  

Dec 30 2013: Just started Swami Xpress - after fine tuning the information, it shows 48% Explorer and gave me a hybridized Explorer/BTD list. A new adventure for this old lady!
