Have read both Dr D's books, pls recently Dr L. Cordain's 'The Paleo Answer', plus Gab Cousen's book (Conscious Eating) about raw plant based diet.  I know for sure that my digestive system worked much better on the raw vegan diet; the only issue I had was maintaining my muscle mass, and constant blood sugar levels.  I am still working on it, recently the increase in animal protein has resulted in sluggishness in lower digestive function, increased dyspepsia. Had to give myselt a high self-administered colonic/enema today, as system had shut down from Saturday with a migraine too.  Have felt nausea every day, and no bowel motion until after lunch, this has slowly gotten worse over the last month or two. Taking digestive enzymes hasn't helped.  so, here again, my dilemma is to work out something that works long term for me, not just for a short time. I don't just need lots of 'yang' energy from eggs/meat/poultry/fish; my colon also needs to work well, which affects all other glands/mental health ('Colon Health' by Norman Walker) recommended reading. Lunch today was fruit, followed by vegies and liver.  Tonight was supposed to be poultry, but instead I am making one of Gab Cousen's recipes - a spinach avocado dip which I will serve with steamed broccoli.  I am thinking maybe a bit of paleo, a little BTD/genotype and some raw vegan diet may suit me better; gee - we are certainly all inviduals!!

There is no reason you can't eat all the raw vegan foods that are BT O compliant, with some meat.

When you increased your animal protein, did you continue eating raw veggies with the animal foods, or did you decrease your veggie intake and/or eat more cooked veggies? You may need to eat lots of raw veggies along with the animal proteins. You might also want to look into eating raw animal proteins- you may digest them better.

You probably also need some probiotics in your system, either from a good probiotic supplement (I recommend Dr D's formula for Os) or from fermented vegetables, or both.

Thankyou DoS and ruthiegirl for taking the time to comment. I actually had to eat cooked veggies, too much raw creates some imbalance in my system, as Ayurvedic doctors know (I am 'vata' type in Ayurveda body-mind type and long-term vata imbalance which means weakness in nervous system which then creates probs with digestion - see vata prana imbalance on ayurveda web sites). Maybe a little raw carrot, beet, raddish is ok, but when it comes to food under bitter quality - like most leafy greens, my digestive system protests, shuts down and I also can't sleep and feel more nervy than normal.  Right now, I am not feeling great, vata dosha imbalance, and also a pitta imbalance (diarroahea today and headache with inflamed nerve root under one of my teeth in bottom left of mouth) after two days of constipation, the enema on Monday helped a lot.  I am doing what my previous ayurvedic doctor would say, rest and eat warm, moist cooked foods, with juicy fruits ie blueberry, fresh fig, pear, plum, peach, mango, pineapple (summer here in Australia, so the fruit is easy). also some ghee, tumeric and foods under sweet, salty and sour qualities to balance my vata dosha.
Yes, I am already taking Dr D's pro-biotic for type O, and have cultured veg in fridge (I still don't like taste of cultured veg). Also, when I was eating salads/raw veg, I can't maintain my weight, look very thin and feel hungry still.  I am sure, my system will balance out in time.  I would like to eat raw fish, but don't know how yet, maybe if I marinate in lemon juice, I can eat it raw - don't know if harmful bacteria will still be in raw fish/seafood.  I ate red snapper (steamed) for lunch today with some cooked veg in olive oil and spices, with a little basil/walnut pesto (basil to help with my digestive enzymes).  tonight will be sweet potato and spices cooked, with basmati rice (I just miss rice a lot when I don't eat, so yes, tonight will enjoy some rice.
will post another topic soon about eating rabbit and saponins in quinoa!
