Hi,
I have to say - sometimes I'm confused I'm looking at the poster titled: 'Top Foods for Beautiful Skin and Hair. Blood Type O' and I see that one of them is spinach. On the other hand my GenoType Diet book tells me that spinach is a toxin for hunters... Another one is figs. My 'Live right 4 your type' book tells me that they are highly beneficial for me and 'The GenoType Diet' book again contradicts that. There are few other examples like that. What should I do with such foods? Eat them or avoid them???

The first thing to do is choose which diet you are using.

That always simplifies things.  

I use SWAMI and don't have the GT lists handy (BTD food ratings are available on site).

For myself, a SWAMI Hunter, spinach is a neutral and I enjoy it from time to time. And I found that getting dates instead of figs worked to my benefit, again per SWAMI.

Hi Kasia

As Lloyd says, deciding which of the diets you are following is the key. If you are following the BTD be sure to check the Typebase on this site too for the very latest listings on tested foods - the values in the Typebase supersede those in the original BTD books (ER4YBT and Live Right).

If you're following the GTD only, use those values instead. I wouldn't mix and match or try to combine the diets yourself as it'll get pretty confusing and hard to manage.

Swami is the most advanced and personalised of the lifestyle offerings as it takes into account many individual variants (family history, personal medical history, weight etc), crunching/considering/incorporating innumerable permutations to give you a truly unique food listing.

In my case on my Swami (I'm a Hunter) both spinach and figs are superfoods.

All the best and welcome to another UK dweller.

I often read links about "the benefits of X food" and about half the time it's a food I can eat, and the other half it's a food I shouldn't be eating. So, I ignore the "wonderful benefits of" the foods that aren't good for me personally.

The Blood Type Diet and the Genotype Diet are two different dietary systems. They're similar, but not identical. You need to decide which diet you're following: blood type diet, genotype diet, or a personalized SWAMI. Then, you follow that food list, and ignore all others.

Spinach is a wonderful food. It's full of iron and fiber and low in carbs- but it also has some "anti nutrients" in it that aren't good for all people. It does something bad to the typical Hunter metabolism, even though it's full of nutrients that are good for the typical O.

So, if you're following the Hunter Diet, the "general tips for type O" won't all apply to you. Use the ones that work and ignore the ones that don't.

Also good to remember that even a good food must be digested and absorbed well to be of use to the body, esp if one's enzymes and stomach acid is not at good levels, or if the body is holding onto toxins/wastes.  A hunter or type O person, at age 20 can also be very different at age 40 or 50 in terms of metabolism and health of the endocrine glands, so is good to know one's own body, and tune in as to what works.
Also some foods work better at different times of the day, for instance salads or stir-fried veggies, and green bitter vegetables like broccoli and kale, I find they digest better around lunch, but spinach I like as last meal of the day.  This afternoon, I will add spinach to a green/fruit smoothie. I must think more about this topic.

If you are following the Hunter diet one important point to note is the change of Soy status. Given as neutral in ER4YT it is an avoid in the Hunter diet. Given the number of Soy or Soy-containing products on the market this is a must to watch for.

Also Spinach is a black dot for Hunters so you can use it sparingly after you have been on the diet for 6 months.

there is a quiz somewhere on this site which tells which diet is best for you…BTD or genotype.
