Hi everyone,

I am new to this and have a question regarding a few of the food items that for a type B are avoids, but are considered beneficial for Gatherers, or the other way around.  I am specifically confused about dairy and tomatoes.  Dairy is beneficial for Type B, but an avoid for Gatherers, and tomatoes are beneficial for Gatherers but an avoid for Type B.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

The Genotype Diet is more targeted than the Blood Type Diet. While some are Gatherers or Explorers, the majority of B's are actually Nomads. Have another look at your measurements, just to be sure.

I actually did buy the book on my Kindle and took measurements.  I wonder if since Bs are relatively rare if I should follow the B foods when there is a great contradiction since the recommendations must be more geared towards Os.

Most of us clearly do better on either one or the other of the two dietary approaches (BTD or GTD).  They take different approaches to good health.  The BTD helps us make the best of the genes we have (inherited).  The GTD makes our genes work for us, thus diminishing the chances of seeing inherited disease tendencies to become manifest in our lives or those of our descendants.

The SWAMI is more personalized than either and seems to take the best of the two approaches.

I personally did better on the BTD than the GTD, but the opposite has been true for some others.  In my case, the SWAMI was most satisfactory and resolved a lot of my stubborn health issues.

Sorry I can't answer your question but I am a B too and when I had a hair allergy test done I was told I was lactose and nightshade intolerant and yet the blood type diet States diary is good and also potatoes neutral  so am confused. Re genotype I have only discovered this tonight so not sure if it's too soon to peruse this.
Irrespective I am following any responses to original posters questions.

I think I am going to try the Swami....  It seems like I am just odd in that whatever works for most people just doesn't seem to apply to me.  Maybe I'll get some answers.

Thanks everyone!

Hello, again, Ellacraig. Intolerant is an important word:
People who are lactose-intolerant tend to know it (and so might those around them   ).
People who are nightshade-intolerant, likewise, often with inflammation associated with immediately preceding consumption, which inflammation is otherwise not experienced.

Someone's telling you that you are "intolerant" of a given food doesn't necessarily make sense.
Also: Dr. D'Adamo tells of many B non-whites believing themselves lactose-intolerant, and he teaches them how to begin to tolerate dairy!

Likewise:
In your current state of health, if you are indeed intolerant of those beneficials, you can begin to follow the B diet without them and, gradually, introduce each one, one at a time, to find out if your intolerance has gone away.
If you'd like to give the BTD a try, then do so expecting the best. Then, if you do find yourself actually unable to tolerate the dairy or the nightshades (Peppers and eggplant are beneficials, while Potatoes are just a neutral) then you can always avoid them.
Tweaking the food lists to optimize their own well-being is a way of life for many, once they get going.

You need to pick a diet and stick with it: Blood  Type Diet, Genotype Diet, or SWAMI.  I just took a quick peek at the food lists in the Arthritis book, and for some reason white potato isn't listed at all (except as an avoid for non-secretors.) So I don't know if it's meant to be in the "neutral: frequently" or the "neutral: infrequently" section.

None of the "book diets" can take EVERY factor into account. If you have a specific reason to avoid nightshades, then you should stay away from tomatoes even if you're following the Gatherer diet or potatoes even if you're following the Type B diet. None of these diets, not even SWAMI, can account for actual food allergies. Don't eat foods you're allergic to, no matter where they fall on the lists! Also, bear in mind that, at best, potatoes are neutral. For B non-secretors and Gatherers, they're an avoid.

People with lactose intolerance can often handle small amounts of low-lactose dairy products, such as cheese or yogurt.
