I chose my own even though we are more suseptable to Cancers we are also more likely to change our diet habits if we set our mind to it. By doing that turn our chances around drasticly!

Well if I could really choose, then I would choose to be all blood types, I'd be an AOBAB, so I Could eat EVERYTHING!    But on the other hand there would be more avoids    

No seriously, I chose none of the four types, because none of them itself has overwhelming advantages over the others. No matter what blood type you are, if you know what type you are, you have health in your own hands and so all blood types can lead a healthy life, if they follow the BTD guidelines.

Some say it's not so good to be an A, because of all the cancer and heart disease risks. But if you carefully follow the A diet, you can bypass these diseases. Just take a look at Japan: They have a very high rate of blood type A, but have the highest life expectancy in the world. Their diet is traditionally low in meat products, but high fish and vegetable consumption.

But on the other hand, being B is real cool too, because we are a rare and therefore royal bunch

I chose to be the type that I am.  Although it took me a while to adjust to all this beef and meat.  Now that I have I feel so much better.  There are things that I miss but not enough to pick another type and give up what I have and be at risk for deadly diseases.

All I have to say is, thank God I'm a B!!!!!

I've avoided my beloved dairy for so long beacuse it's so "unhealthy," according to the conventional diet wisdom.  I jumped for joy the day I bought this book and saw that I could finally have cottage cheese again.

It's weird, but I've always craved the stuff I'm eating now, but stayed away because I thought it was bad.

When first read about BTD  (2 years ago) didn't know my blood type.
Reading the Book I thought  I'm an O.

When I found out I'm a B felt I won a prize.
B diet is great.
What don't like about, is the autoimmune disease profile of B's.

  I chose B sec even though I am a Non-Sec as I enjoyed potato more than tomato's
and liked the larger choice in grains. I am happy I'm a B as its seems I MUST have dairy products to keeps my digestive system working better. There was a time I went through the "anything White is bad" phase and it was a disaster.

I would choose to be me! O all the way, except I do wanna get my secretor status done)

going off dairy was difficult, but this is what I do to make myself happy again;

  soy milk
+ dash of natural vanilla essence  
+ 1 soft banana
+ 1 large scoop organic soy icecream
+ liquid honey to taste
= yummy treat.

If I was a B, I would eat cheese, milk and yoghurts knowing that it's good for me. And all the Bs I know are so slim! ... But I can't imagine my life without all the carbohydrates that A diet lets me eat. And I really don't like meat!

Sorry to ruin your" B´s are so slim" - sonia-
My sister and I are both B´s - none of us are slim( but we used to be when we where kids- I follow BTD my sister doesn´t -yet!)
- but we seem to be overweight in a slightly different way than my O and A friends. Both of us carry the weight all over the body and we both have no problem with colesterol or blooodpressure etc- acttually- as both our docs said" well you should loose weight but looking at your test results we can´t see that you are 15 kg(me) overweight or my sister aprox 30 kg!
My other B friend is slim but not skinny!

I love being a "B"positive nonnie.  The reason is...........I LLLLOOOOOOVVVEEEEE.......
YOGURT & BERRIES, YUMMMMMY.  I have been eating 10 lbs of yogurt per week along with about the same amount of mixed berries & blueberries.  I could eat that everyday, everymeal, forever!!!!!  But, recently, I found out .....(sigh)........ too much of a good thing  can be a bad thing :'  So in an effort to loose a few pounds, I'm holding back from the yogurt & berries, gotta try to add some veggies & meat , I think every blood type has to eat sweets in moderation or gain weight] (I could do without the meat & veggies) (never had lamb in my life until about 2-3 mths ago.  I decided I should try it,  because I know I should be eating more meat to have a well-balanced diet.   GIVE UP MY YOGURT FOR CHICKEN , IT'S A NO-BRAINER,  NOT A CHANCE!!!!  (After trying the Atkins diet a few times, I don't miss the meat at all)  And I am happy having lamb everyday, I don't have a desire for much more than that.  In fact, if I want I can have a steak with my sweet potato with ghee, (just discovered recently that I LLLLOOOOOOOOOVVVVVEEEE sweet potatoes w/ ghee.

I do miss cake, sugar, occasionally I fall off the wagon for a piece of cake or a cookie.   But being able to be healthy eating yogurt & berries .......I'll stay a "B" nonnie .

I love this question.  I'm going to take this opportunity to vent.  I went through a serious period of mourning when I realized I wasn't an A but an O.  Almost everyone in my life is an A.  I could do without meat (quite frankly), love wheat, avocados, was seriously addicted to coffee before pregnancy, wish I had an excuse to drink red wine more, etc.  Boo hoo.  I wish I was an A.  But, alas, I feel so much better eating for the O diet.  So, I guess I need to embrace the things about O that I like.  For example, I guess chowing on a piece of steak isn't so bad.  Also, I probably wouldn't have been able to kick serious arse in cross country in hs, run a marathon in college, and hike to the top of Mt. Whitney if I were in A.  So... I'll try to embrace the O.

I am happy as an O Sec along with all of my kids, my husband is an O nonnie (poor thing), but he is not following the diet anyway. IT is just so darn tempting(and happened more than once) a pan of Gluten free cookies jumoing into my mouth and half of the pan is gone before I know it and I ahve gained 10 pounds to boot. But As long as I exercise I am Ok with those sneak attacks

Well I am an O sec, have been on the Diet for over 12 months now, I chose my own blood type as it is what I am used to. I find when I go out and knowing what I can and cant eat, which to me isnt a problem, other people say to me, "Oh I couldnt possibly do that diet".....funny thing is when I ask them their blood type and I tell them the foods they should not eat, they say the couldnt give them up, although they do make them sick or feel uncomfortable..go figure.
I have  learned some people 'enjoy' being sick, maybe it is the attention they get, or maybe they are just trying to out do people on the amount of prescription drugs they take to 'cure'..(lol) their conditon.

I'd like to be an B nonsecretor. I love dairy. And a good organic steak broiled with olive oil and garlic. Oi!

B's totally rule.

B secretor, Tier I. Check it out.  All that freedom. Just like on the steppes of Khazakstan.

I live with a B-secretor and he gets to eat all of the things I miss.  Cheese, peppers, pickles, etc.  I don't know if I'd miss corn because I don't eat it anyway.

I like being an A, but it seems that I have to be aware of vinegar and tomatoes.  It was easier when I cooked all of the time, but alas, I've fallen into a bit of depression that Cortiguard has been helping me through, but it seems impossible to do any sort of pre-packaged stuff.

Still plugging away at the diet, though.

Olerica:

Get the joy back.  Nutritionally, it starts with Food that is Real.
Buy real fruit and real vegetables.  Real dairy.  Real grains, nuts and seeds. Real beans.  Real dairy, and, yes, there are some dairy products you A's can enjoy, particularly in the "fresh" and "cultured" area. Stay away, yes, from the packaged stuff.

It's truly remarkable what'll start happening.

Even if you weren't doing the blood type thing, and even if you were a B (!), you'd still find yourself having to face the fact that only Real Food is Food.

As a B I only buy the real stuff, and I'm having a ball.  Never think about Corn, Tomatoes, Lentils, Peanuts, Buckwheat or Garbanzo beans or even Chicken.  It's a NON-ISSUE for me, totally.  Don't have to put on my reading glasses in the store to read the labels, because there are virtually NO LABELS anymore!

It's great.  
Something in this hard world (and I know a thing or two about hardness) (especially these days) to be happy about.

I may be an O, but in my heart of hearts I'm a total A.... I was a vegetarian for so many years.. that's the food I love to cook and eat.  Also, I adore coffee...


My daughter, who is an A, and I enjoyed years of fun vegetarian cooking.  She florished.. and I  crumpled.. I was so tired... tired.. tired.. the more we created...I finally got SO exhausted, I looked into the BTD.. my daughter still thinks I'm a traitor.. lol

I'd like to be an A... may I have a perminent transfusion, please??  

I DO, howerver, follow  the O diet.. my life depends on it!!

I'm unsure. I like the idea of being vegetarian, not giving money to the meat industry and all that, but... but.... it's kind of scary. Like I'm limiting myself to tofu burgers for the rest of my life. I've been a big meat eater since forever. And I chugged skim milk like water when I was little.

But if my body needs tofu, I'll give it tofu!

And I'm sick of being nauseous after eating meat anyway.

A secretor status would be nice!  I had to choose Bsec for the variety in the diet.  Cheese, potato, meat, fish, apples, sugar, tea, some wheat, oats, honey, blackberries.......a little bit of everything in balanced ratios.  Lucky little B's!  Any secretor status would help out, though!  Nonnie's have such a strict diet.

At first I thought Iwould  choose AAAA! because I was a vegetarian for many many years. But oh, did I eat dairy. So I realized the B type would be so yummy. Cheeeeeeese! I would be BBBB. The O diet is good for me and meat is surprisingly delicious, but I feel bad that I have to have killed food. However, if its true that my health depends on it, then it must be part of a grand plan that is not up to me.....I'm enjoying my new diet as an O. Jayney-O
