     I have Dr. D's book ALLERGIES: FIGHT THEM WITH THE BLOOD TYPE DIET on my Kindle, downloaded from Amazon.com.  Part I is  Blood Type and Allergies - a basic primer. It gives very good explanations about environmental and food allergens and lectins, etc.
Part II talks about individual blood types and plans for improving health.
     One other thing he says is that just because a food is not on an avoids list does not mean you can safely eat it. For example, Dr. D says "blood type A can eat eggs in moderation" "unless they produce allergic reactions", and "type A benefits from moderate consumption of grains" but "if you have allergies, you should limit or avoid wheat and corn products." I'm an A- with allergies to those foods.
     As a test, I drank one of my husband's Ensures this morning for breakfast, just to see. It said gluten free and safe for those with lactose intolerance. Well, 30 minutes afterward, my blood pressure went up to 135/75 and my pulse went from 85 to 96. Thirty minutes later my pressure was 152/80 and my pulse was 105. Five minutes later my pressure was 154/78 and my pulse was 117. Now, fifteen minutes later, it's 184/97 and my pulse is 132. I'll never do that again. Gotta go use my little exercise bike, sitting in a chair, before I have a heart attack or something. I feel really weird in my chest.

With so many ingredients, it is really difficult to tell what you are reacting to with the Ensure.  There is dairy, corn, gums, soy, colors, and loads of chemical vitamins - any of which (separately or in combination) could be causing grief...

It is much more reliable to use single item foods to determine sensitivities...  Of course, then you still have to determine if the reaction is a good one, that you maybe want less of, or a bad one that you want to eliminate completely.

It is two hours later, and after a salad and one ounce of sirloin, I feel much better. Yes, I know I should only test one thing at a time, but breakfast is so hard because of what I can't have, so I thought one Ensure couldn't hurt that much. Well, wrong! It was pretty scary for a while because not only was my blood pressure really high, so was my pulse, and I was feeling spacey and shaky. Will not try that again. Just so hard to find something for breakfast when basically all I should eat is compliant vegetables and fruit (and fish - which I hate), almonds, peanuts, and pumpkin seeds. Who wants veg. for breakfast and then also for the rest of the day? Fruit is good, but it doesn't hold me very long and I have to balance it with a low glycemic food(I'm pre-diabetic). I usually eat either prunes (or some dried or canned fruit) and almonds, or apple with natural peanut butter, or stir fried vegetables, or canned pumpkin with agave and cinnamon for breakfast. I'm getting tired of that. Then a salad for either lunch or dinner and vegetables with a little protein (meat or poultry) for the other meal. Pumpkin seeds or peanuts for snacks. Not real appetizing after a while and makes me not even want to eat. I'm  allergic to gluten/grains, soy, dairy, eggs, sunflower, and probably corn. I don't digest rice or beans well, even though I don't have an allergic reaction to them per say. So ......? Anyway, just expounding. Reading all Dr. D's books over and over.

DL, I wish you could find a fish you like or a way to prepare some that would make you at least try it. My SIL absolutely refused to eat fish until she saw my DH grilling some for us. She is now a fan of at least grilled tilapia.
I eat alot of fruit and veggies but they are not exactly filling, so I do know what you mean. I am fortunate to enjoy beans and rice. Have you searched the health food stores for a compliant bread?  
Hoping you find what you need!

Cajun - Thanks. I've tried every bread out there except amaranth, and get side effects from all grains. I used to make goat milk-rice flour biscuits, pancakes, etc for my girls when they were little. I found a recipe somewhere. I thought they tasted terrible, but the girls didn't know what wheat ones were supposed to taste like, so they ate them. I am allergic to goat milk. I used to put natural peanut butter and corn-free fruit jam on rice cakes for them, also, but I can't digest rice cakes. They sit in my upper stomach and hurt, even with digestive enzymes. Kids at school used to make fun of my girls because they couldn't eat stuff in the lunch room like the other kids. I used to buy a lot of alternative food stuff at GNC when they sold foods, not like today, when it is just vitamins and body-building stuff. Boy, was I creative back then. I've been working on these problems for nearly 44 years. I didn't know about lectins nor Dr. D. until recently. One daughter seems to have outgrown her food allergies. The other daughter, like me, seems to be getting worse.

DL,

My recommendation is to eat what you can tolerate from your Beneficial and Neutral lists.  As you eliminate the lectins from your diet, your intestinal cells will heal and hopefully, some of those sensitivities will reduce.

D.L. I really know how you feel re seeming to react to most things & finding it hard to eat without being limited to a few things... I think maybe once your gut is on the way to being healed, perhaps you will be able to tolerate some things you previously couldn't?!
Interestingly & strangely enough, since I started having chili (the spice not the meal) I am pretty sure my sensitivities are not as bad as they used to be??!!
I normally can't travel in traffic ever, without shutting off the incoming air vents (to avoid fumes from cars) But I was so totally unaware of any problems these last two days that I even forgot to think about shutting the vents...usually as automatic an action as putting on my seatbelt??!!

Could you have smoothies for breakfast? Put a variety of compliant foods into the blender with water and/or ice: fruits, nut butter, maybe also some veggies like spinach for added nutrition. If you have a protein powder you tolerate, you can add that too- otherwise use more nut butter in the smoothie. You could even use compliant bone broth in place of the water for extra protein and minerals.

My mom has seasonal allergies and I think my sister has a touch of them but I've never developed so much as a sniffle or sneeze or anything.

Blood Type is the short way of talking about part of the immunological profile of the blood - essential for transfusions, transplants, etc.  ABO blood type (and secretor) is a major factor of the immune system and therefore directly corresponds with the immune architecture through which an allergy must flow.

From what I remember reading in ER4YT or the BT encyclopedia, O's tend to have the world view, "reactor" while A's are "receptors", so logically O's would suffer more from allergies than A's? I could have that all wrong but, my swami has me as a reactor which is spot on!
My allergist has a theory about modern man not having to "fight off worms, etc." as our ancient ancestors did, thus our systems aren't working like they used to, so now we perceive everything as a threat....
Interestingly, Possum, I also shut all vents when on the road! Have to!
