ho nooooooooooo,, that will be an expensive bet,rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrg
sorry Heidi, I spoke from feeding you upt to 150 Kg's not fro m150Kg's of caviar...........................
what I rally must agree now is, that even in joking and bla-bla-bla, you think that you know all
about your own type,- and scrash--------------------- rums.....................baff -eini -uff-de-schnurre-
thats' schwitz-argo!!! you get to know that you are in error with lots' of "beliefs" and cause of
not really having  understood,or being the "over-flieger.............." you may fail..........................
and thats' something I tried to evite because I hate doing same errors twice...............

But as I am a human being-and erroning is quite familiar for those poor-ones-hihihi and as I am
until now not certiefied-I'll hope to be next year- if ther's not anybody to bomb my flyer to USA,
so I allow myselve to fail (sometimes) but perhaps I ought to repeat the encyclop. more and more
and ther's something that may have "gone" in my weired brain.
A-ha- that is my B-allele that is beginning after 47years with B'z-heimers?
greetings and waiting for aLL THOSE REPLIES TO COME TO  VISIT "HEIDI-LAND"

I'm almost in your camp, heidi, but I'll take A2B+ secretor.  That way I still get most of my preferred gluten-free baking ingredients (and even get romano/cranberry/copper bean flour added), but more MEAT and DAIRY choices and an easier time at the fish counter.  The only trouble is that I would have to find another way to get my B vitamins, since I would lose nutritional yeast.

But overall, they've got it made!

hrrmmmm....  {{squints through the AB Grains n Starches again}}  gluten-free baking..... hmmm.  only thing we'd lose going with sec rather than non is soy flour, for which other bean flours could step right in as you ably noted.

what's that about noot-yeast? nah, you're peeking through TYPEbase, I'll bet.  do we have another tiny cavil there?  the book's right.  where's the big guy in these threads, anyway... oh well, he can't be ALL things to ALL people, just most things to a whole lotta happy campers.

We gain duck eggs, too, Ducky!   Chestnuts: BENEFICIAL, oh I'm doing a little dance.  A2B Neg Non -- The WAY2GO!!  

Aw Sarah, c'mon over to the Neggie Nonnie Enthusiasts Club (tiny but growing!)   It's so ... everything!.... it's so YOU, don't you think?    

Oo!  Oo! And we could toast your newfound excellent taste with a Bombay Sapphire martini, extra dry, straight up and Arctic cold, with two big fat Queen Green Olives, darlin'!  YES!  Olives: The real reason for having a martini, HOO-rah!! That's gluten free, ain't it?   you KNOW it is!!

jaaaaaaaoooooooooouuuuuuuuuu it is-

where did you find all those info's about A2B, Rh- non-sechi?I understood that the Rh-factor is not important for foodstuffs? So I wil and will and will stay on my A2B ++++++++++++++++++
non-secretor mediterranian french-style cucina-lecker-lecker.

Claro gluten-free baking-allways doing my fresh bread myslef, but here I am using a little"oriental"
recipe- never giving it completely to others- with some ingredients-whow super....................
I think ducky is forbidden for me, but autruche is fine tooooo,the legs are sometime a little long and hard to get between the dents-ok it's crunchy...........

Isa, that's OK if you don't want to share your recipe.  

All my A2B-Neg Nonsecretor food info is in Live Right 4 Your Type.  The Rhesus factor doesn't affect food values, but it does have an impact on portions allowed per week - see the Meat/Poultry and Fish categories, particularly.  

Truly, everyone will learn a bunch if they review that book when choosing their 'ideal blood type.'  

totally cool thread, Aeowyn!

heidi, I didn't think I would lose soy.  I'd better not; it actually isn't particularly replaceable for me, since I use it as an egg replacer along with flax (eggs have given me headaches the last three times I have tested them).  I'm confused.  

And about nutritional (brewer's) yeast, it and stevia are listed as avoids for A2Bs on p.319 of LR4YT.  Without a portion/frequency table it's easy to miss.

I'm having a hard time seeing how the neggie-nonnie variant of A2B is superior to the secretor variant.    OK, I'd get fava beans back, but I'd lose Brazil nuts.  Not that I'm particularly attached to them for taste, but Brazil nuts sure would make it easier to meet my selenium requirement!  Nutritional yeast doesn't cut it--and I couldn't have it anyway.  And I wouldn't want to lose agar before I even had a chance to experiment with it (to stabilize a gluten-, dairy-, and egg-free pumpkin pie, for instance).  Sweeteners are nice, too.

And sorry, but you won't entice me into your camp with a martini!  I have no idea which alcoholic drinks are gluten-free, and I don't care 'cause I can't stand the smell of the stuff in the first place.  Looks like I'll be staying a secretor!

I would without a doubt choose blood type B, so I could eat yummy dairy!!!

It's what I miss most being an O . My second choice would be A blood type.

Oh to be B!

Looks like the B's are winning!

B, B, B, B... how I would LOVE to be a B.  All this talk about ABs - I reviewed the lists and I will not be swayed!  I was tempted for a few minutes by "A" when I realized A's could have corn and popcorn.... but I shouldn't let this neutral item sway me - besides what are corn chips if you can't have salsa -- popcorn w/out butter is OK, but - no - just not worth it.

And to think, I had a chance to be a B.  I've been able to determined my parent's sub types are Ao/+-  and Bo/+-.  Don't know secretor info - but I could have been ANYTHING...

Hard for me  to decide between a O nonnie and a B secretor, great meat choices and oh that wonderful shellfish, and all that dairy and especially the vinegar choices and potatoes.

Hey Sarah ~  I see a post like yours, and my eyes light up.  

This is so neat, because you're looking at it from the viewpoint that you would be celiac (maybe you're including your kids there, too), no matter which type you chose, and so the best 'celiac + blood group' list is what guides your evaluation of the blood types for purposes of this poll.  You reach your decision via a far more complex route than mine.

I'm looking at it from purely a personal 'idea' of the diet I'd prefer in terms of cuisines, balance among food groups, and ease/expense of shopping/cooking/ eating in / eating out -- also figuring that since this is a fantasy, I can say: "OK, Bryan will be one, too!"     and do so in good faith, really, after mentally switching my 'lenses' for his and considering what he likes to cook and eat, what he misses and what he doesn't care about... add to that One List To Rule Them All (well, all two of us) and we'd be stylin'   ~  it's a wow.  

In discussing differences between secretor & non, I thought you minded losing Soy flour/bread as a gluten-free alternative.  

Well, the added extra bennies I like about neg v. pos are:   WHOA, there aren't any!! Umm... because I don't like borage oil?  !!  Gets really complicated with two antigens, one subtype, and the other usuals thrown in.  

I chose non v. sec because there are proportionately more servings weekly of what I really like, and less here & there of what I don't care for as much.  Even in the cheeses, where the combo of a2b and non reduces things significantly, at least I could have a bit of neutral or Beneficial cheese on special occasions, and enjoy it as a 'good for me' food.  

For nuts... well I have to say I'd be sorely tempted back to 'secretor' just for the sake of PISTACHIOs, but... when you've got peanuts, butternuts, CHESTNUTS, and almonds that pop up to Beneficial... aw, who cares about pistachios.  

Never cared for Brazil nuts... and there's plenty of selenium in my nutritional yeast (KAL).  P.S.: it's grown on beets.  Or, as it says on the package, "is not a byproduct of the brewing industry" -- so I'd say "Fa De La" to the 'no brewer's yeast' warning.    

But, the AB type, whether secretor OR non, A2 or A1, rhesus whaddevah, really rocks.    Thanks for exploring it with me, Sarah!

If I were type O, then I would have chosen O sec or B sec, since they seem to have the best of meat and dairy choices respectively and given those diets are less restrictive than O non. Being that there are no secretors in my immediate family, I have no concept what it would be like, since nons are more prone to inflammatory conditions than secretors. Inflammatory diseases like lupus, rheumatoid arthritis,and Goodpastures Syndrome (rare inflammatory disease affecting kidneys) run rampant on my mom's side of the family and in my immediate family. Allergies and chronic sinusitis have pretty much plagued me since my teen years. The O non diet is based on foods that promote the least amount of inflammation. The A non diet eliminates most meats, dairy, all wheat products except spelt and the sprouted breads,corn and all corn products,so in some ways, the A diets are just as restrictive as the O diets. Looking at the meat and veg choices that O nons have , I could live with those choices, especially since their avoid vegs just happen to be the ones I dislike the most anyway.

If given a choice between A sec and A non, no way would I trade my A non diet. Some of the avoid meats became neutral, many of the avoid fish became neutral or beneficial and best of all tomatoes and peppers became neutral. Soy went from beneficial to neutral, thank goodness, because I had problems with it causing stiffness in my joints and extreme hormonal imbalances. I had never had acne or mood swings until I began eating soy and I'm no where close to being menopausal, so I just stopped eating it and now I'm fine.

And I feel great great on my O nonnie diet.  But if I could eat another "type" diet AND get all the benefits from eating their foods that they get - I would want to be a "B".  But I'm not, and I don't - so O nonnie it is!  Not that bad once you get used to it  .

I was almost ready to say B...thinking I would enjoy being able to eat cheese whenever I wanted but what
also comes with Bs are those "gamey" meats that I find fairly revolting just by reading the list..So, next might
be the O SEC diet...with all the steak, but Mmm, where are my peanuts and my coffee and the large choice
of other carbs.  Wouldn't be happy with that...I guess I'm happy with my own diet...A SEC...

I picked O secretor.  O's don't die.  They live forever. A's drop dead at the first sign of a malignancy.  B's have the best food because they can have dairy but O's still live forever.

I voted for my own BT. Type B. Should know my secretor status soon as I sent my test kit in yesterday. Love the variety  of o.k. foods. I miss eating nuts though. Before November 3, when I started BTD, I ate a lot of cashews, peanuts,  pistachio's, and pumpkin seeds. Popcorn was also a staple of mine. It wasn't hard to give these up though because I replaced them with other things. Did you know that you can pop millet grain like popcorn?

I'm cool with no beef, didn't think I would be, but I am.

Dairy?  Well no... for a while now, I knew that eating cheese made me someone to avoid being around.  Besides, my Type B friend often talks about hating giving up chicken so bad, she would buy a roasted chicken and peel the skin off the bird and chew on it and spit it out.  Holy cow!!  No... I don't wanna be a B.

I don't understand type AB.  I start reading and it's like NOOOOOOOOOOOO  I can't go there.

Gosh where does that leave me.... A nonnie?  oh yeah.... that would explain the tomato cravings wouldn't it?  More choices for meats would be nice.  Some rabbit?  That might be a nice change from chicken all the dang time just because I can't get fish past my Type A (with strong tendencies toward beef and dairy) house spouse.  


It is what it is so I'm dealing with it.

[quote by=Diane_Gerencser link=Blah.pl?b=lr4yt,m=1099449363,s=0 date=1099449363]If you could choose your blood type (and the food list that goes with it), what would you be?

 I picked my own bloodtype.  Learning about myself through this diet has been life changing, and now I like my being an a type.  I used to hear about people hunting for meat and think 'I must be really lazy, but if I had to do all that just to live I would be in real trouble.  It all sounded so extreme just for a piece of meat when you could fish for something better (in my a opinion) and much cleaner to fix.  

  Just a side note here, I read the book eryt before I knew my blood type.  I thought Dr D must really not like a types.  His example was Hitler!  Then I learned he is one!

   I am learning how to be 'myself' for the first time.  When I was in junior high a teacher had a sign on her desk 'learn to be who you are'.  I always wondered about that.  Because if you 'are' a certain person, why do you have to learn to be that person.  A  little riddle that would come back to me occasionally.  But that has been my whole process with the btd, and a long time ago the dadamo board did the personality test and I learned more about myself.  Combining a traits with the personality profile, and bingo, that is me.  So cool.  Thanks.

I picked the B-secretor type. Talking about bloodtypes i told a friend that if i could chose my bloodtype i would want to be B, and ofcourse healthwise i would always chose to be a secretor. This does not at all mean i hate being a A2-ns-MM, on the contrary. I have gotten used to what works for me, and i feel great on the btd and got much more healthy and energetic since i am on the nonnie diet (about 3 years now).  
But what appeals to me most with the B-type's foodlist is the dairy (as an MM i get less then zero dairy weekly .
