I'm suprised more people didn't choose B since we are the most omnivorous. You don't have to give up any entire food group.




I would choose to remain an "A" but would prefer to be a secretor instead a non-secretor. I'd rather have corn and sugar then tomatoes and bananas  
I'm perfectly content being an herbavore

Man, a B secretor, "Oh I want to eat something beneficial, I think I'll have a glass of milk".  That would be great.  O nons has to be the worst.  "How about a beer with that, thats OK", come on B sec, your lucky.

Well, it's too bad that I can't eat wheat.  I've still got a couple hundred pounds left from when we started the BTD!  It's back in NH though.  We were living on family property and to my knowledge it's still there... so long as the bug haven't gotten to it!
My husband, an A, can not handle any kind of wheat or white flour so I know he's not a warrior.  I don't know what his GTD would be.  
I borrowed my copy of the book from the library and the whole thing was so incredibly confusing to me that I can't even remember all the names of each diet.  I just know mine and wrote down the foods that I could have.  
With that, I had a question:  Are there any A's out there who can have sweet potato on the GTD?  Or banana's?  
Leanne!

Well, I know this isn't the answer you were looking for....I'm not supposed to have them on the GTD, but on the A nonnie BTD list, they were fine.  And they don't bother me.  I know I'm supposed to avoid them now, but if I eat them they do not bother me at all.  That being said....I haven't tried either of them since I started the GTD, but at least I can say that before, when I ate them, I was happy with them.

When this thread started I voted most mournfully for B sec. Now that I am doing the teacher diet (check out those cheeses!!) I would have to change my vote because now I can EAT WHAT I LIKE (where have I heard that before.

Can we start over?????

I chose A sec because I really loved it.  With a few minor exceptions, it was just right for me.  And once I gave up some of the foods that I ate a lot of and felt SO much better, I did not really miss them.

Now eating Teacher diet (and gluten free) things are even better, love many of the foods on my superfoods list.

And I realized the other day, that even though I went into the BTD for health reasons and not to lose weight, I've lost 30 lbs in 2 years.  And it just keeps slowly dropping off.  I am in the lower part of my 'ideal' range now, and for the first time in my life my body is going to be able to find where it wants to be and hang out there.  That has been a really nice 'side effect' of this way of eating for me.

Yup, I do like the BTD/GTD that I am!

The short answer is in a way I have, as I am way more active now.  That has come with feeling better.  I don't do formal exercise, but I walk a lot and do other things in a non-intense, relaxed kind of way.  (cycling, kayaking, swimming, yoga, etc.)  But no schedule, and as little pressure on myself as possible.  I try and make it more organic and instinctive.

When I started the diet in fall06, I felt like I had plateaued with my recovery from several years of cancer treatment/surgeries etc, but I was still not functioning very well.  Changing my diet made all my rehab work start to actually work for me again. The journey continues...

One of the things I most loved about the A diet was the exercise info in LR.  I was FINALLY able to let go of the "if I don't sweat intensely for enough time it is not exercise and it is not enough" mentality that I had been hanging onto...and beating myself up with...for years.  What a relief!  Walking, whatever speed I felt like, stopping to visit, smell flowers, look at the view, pat dogs...it was a whole new world.  And stretching and doing light exercises to continue my rehab...nice.  That was another thing that made me LOVE being an A.

Boy, I'm right there with you, Gumby.  I'm not going to exercise for the sake of exercise.  It's just not going to happen.  It seems like such a waste of time to me.  I'll work in my garden and get exercise, but then I have something to show for it.  I'll go for a walk to get outside, but then I'm refreshed by the air and sunshine.  I'll do deep breathing to relax, but ...  to exercise for the sake of exercise?  No thanks.  There's got to be a purpose for me to bother.

Wow, that sounds like my old attitude toward exercise.  Which probably hastened my decline toward adrenal fatigue.

Elizabeth always says, "I have a lot of energy..." as she races around in circles, "...because I'm an AB!"  I frown and say, as I sit in my chair and shell peas, "Some people expend energy.  I conserve it."

If I could choose I would love to be a Teacher.
My personality is more of teacher & Im also studying teaching, plus I love coffee, cheeses and peanut butter.
Im even thinking of getting my blood type completely retested just in case like when Ron found out he was something else.
Right now I just wish we could all just eat exactly what we wanted without having to worry about diseases, or how it would make us feel or worry about weight or anything - just complete freedom in trusting what our bodies tell us to eat.


Eat your heart out

I'm and A and I LIKE exercise, there I said it, just like they do in AA .

I haven't figured out what my geno type is, I have read the profiles and I'm trying to figure out where I fit. I haven't read the book yet, I supposed I could stop by the library and see if they have it, maybe tomorrow. I thought I might be a teacher, but I don't really fit the profile, I'm not short, I have curly hair and I have no whorls for fingerprints. None of the others seem a perfect fit either, I know for sure I am not a gatherer--I'm way too thin and have a high metabolism. I'd choose something that would allow me to have lots of cheese .

Hey nowishow, I grew up on Burnside Road (back in the day when it was apple orchards), very fond memories of that place, went to Twin Hills Union School.

Yea, I'm going to get the book as soon as I get a real paycheck, work has been WAY TOO SLOW!

I'm too used to being an O and I've aquired a taste for the foods that are already good for me. I honestly can't even imagine being a B. Yeah, it would be nice to have all those dairy products back into my diet, but I'd miss the variety of meats and fruits I can currently have!

If I could choose secretor or non-secretor, I'm not sure. I'd love to be able to re-introduce coconut oil and avocadoes, but then again it would be nice to have sugar and honey and apple cider vinegar and vanilla and all those other goodies that I only eat minimally right now.
