Quoted from Adam


Quoted from chrissyA
What are you guys whining about?!?!? Good grief!!!

How about I go into the Fresh Start thread and post that?  Or any other thread where the predominate posters are women?  Yeah, that would go over well.  Hey, let us men whine a little, too, ok?


Unfortunately that is how women treat men. I think it is biological mostly. If women are upset and having a bad time, men are empathetic but learn it isn't the best idea depending on how you relate or want to relate to her. When men are upset women are pissed off at them and not empathetical. They give snappy advice, and want the guy to man-up immediately. It makes sense because they don't want men turning into women. But it totally goes against the whole "boys can cry too" thing they try to sells us along with gender biases (female boons). If a man is mad, angry, they are totally fine with that even though they say they don't like it, act like they don't... but they'll stay utterly attached and supportive if it isn't perceived as unwarranted anger at them - although it often is unwarranted, all about perception.

Common day culture certainly promotes a decline in Type A blood. There are just as many men magazines about 6 packs, muscle, and fat burning, as there are women magazines about being thin. Luckily for most BT A teachers weight has never been an issue. The anti-GQ men type stuff like rock'n'roll is sorta dependent on abilities to tolerate low sleep, abusive, endurance, etc, too, but never in a patterned way that BT A might excel; it's all based on being stressful, dynamic, stressfully dynamic. Part of it is the demand for quick, immediate production of anything, since things that take time are not well appreciated among the mass.

My interpretation of the original topic is that this gentleman is feeling unmanned because of his blood type. He feels that he cannot be "manly" if he has type A blood, and that women will think him a sissy because of some dietary restrictions. Perhaps what the ladies are responding to is his lack of confidence rather than his diet. What I'm reading in his post is that he's blaming his unsatisfactory success with the ladies on his inability to eat certain foods. Nonsense.

Do you guys find all women with type O blood to be unfeminine and lacking refinement?

Just sayin'...

It's his confidence level - not the food he eats.

That may be true, but there are a lot of factors at play here.

I don't find that food relations are very difficult in the united states.

I took his concerns more like being an optimistic, fun person, who isn't a brute, is unappealing to those he interacts with/wants to.

It isn't as easy to look confident when you say no all the time; and eating some things destroy you isn't a great avenue either... I know an awful lot of blood type O wheat eaters that might pay for it later, but right now exercise and lot and are thriving. Exercises hard doesn't correct anything for Type A, where as for others it can literally stifle off most problems. The unhealthy BT O's that I know are vegetarians, not wheat avoiders, actually. The healthiest are the combination though.

Quoted from Amazone I.
perhaps does here exist a sort of confusion between *self-centered* which I think is a must to begin a partnership... and selfish...which isn't esteemd from myselve at all ...


For many, "self centered"  carries a negative connotation equating to selfishness. Isa, I think what you're saying is  "a centering of one's self" in the truest sense. Or as we used to say, "having your (ahem) "stuff" together.

And I completely agree. We sometimes have an unhealthy tendency to confuse negative traits with positive ones. Selfish vs self possessed, aggressive vs powerful, childish vs childlike etc.

And winner, I have to ask why you think being thoughtful about food choices (or anything else for that matter) points to being gay? It suggests immature influences.  

It seems that you're seeking to fit into a way of life that doesn't really suite your true nature. I feel silly giving advice on what it means to be a real man, but I assure you it does not mean hanging on to boyish notions of chasing girls and impressing would-be friends.

ok. first of all I need to clear this part about "woman are selfish" = it was quoted post from another site, not my personal opinion.

What is really good is that you write a posts to me - I like to read it.

What is making me sad is that about 80percent of posts on this forum coming from group A are FEMALE posters - I just feel that BT A is for women, not men.

It is (as one person wrote) a little bad for me when I pick up a woman (but unfortunately I am not interested in sex, I am interested in relationship) I can get her into the bed (not all but It goes for me a little) but then, some time it always like "ou, you must eat this?" or "I don't understand - everybody eat this, you are weird.."

lets go to pizza, to beer, to ice cream - sorry honey, just some vegetables with rice.. )))) c'mon..

I fully accept this situation and I don't say that women are bad - If I will be a pretty woman, I would date a strong, health men (and also rich - yes, I am honest in this).

I understand that there are maybe this 4 options in woman heads:

1. there are about 10505 healthy men around What I can date - I don't need this one
2. will my children have this life problems as this men? From early age needs special food, maybe be bulled in the school "mother is giving you a special food, ha ha.." you now it is just not good..
3. it needs extra money for special gluten free food - why bother?
4. it needs more effort - why bother?

I know that women don't say it loud but they want A MEN - drinks beer, making grill parties, traveling, eating out, having fun.

Not some that say "I will cook today ok? where is cucumber?" It just not working this way.

Even solution like "find gluten free girlfriend" is not so easy - they prefer healthy men and they are hoping to have a healthy kids with him.

Yes maybe I'm a little whining, but I just need to release what is bothering me for a time..

btw - Vikings - they lived many years ago, it was not in course to go to the shopping center and eat something with a ladies.. and middle age of death was about 30 years old - So up to the 25 they lived for a full gas, and then 5 years was maybe a little worst.. no big deal.. and I - need to wait about another 30 years.. YES, I would like to have somebody with me.. I hope I will meet her...

Ok, you got me laughing at this one "Not some that say "I will cook today ok? where is cucumber"

And you're right, dating a gluten free person is not an easy solution either.

I'm an O but gluten is death for me, but my problem with people was a little different.  I was an amazing baker.  I even got marraige proposals over my wonderful creations lol! I can't even have gluten flour in the house so no chance of baking with it. My friends and family loved me for the things I would bake and I loved the attention and being able to make people happy.  *gone*  Nowadays as I bake my little brown rice biscuits that are heavy like a rock I try not to think about my glory days and be glad I can eat them, so many O's can't have any grains.  

Oh well.  

And for those women...
May those who love us, love us,
And those who don’t love us,
May God turn their hearts,
And if he doesn’t turn their hearts,
May he turn their ankles
So we’ll know them by their limping.

1) Adam, you are welcome on the fresh start thread, it isn't just for women (but most of us over there are OLD, lol).ABJoe pops in once in a while and I hope he finds us welcoming. In fact I miss seeing your posts Adam and I was wondering how you were. As far as I can tell, we vent a little bit over there, but we don't whine, not about men anyway.

2) Gay guys are men too. I have several gay friends and they are just as much men as you straight guys.

3) I've tried to offer suggestions that were productive. I'm an Exercise Physiology student. DoS, I think you have special issues and I am very sorry the exercise doesn't work for you.

4) Seems to me there are just as many selfish men as there are selfish women. At least I was married to two of them  

5) Yes, you are right, most young women are looking for a healthy, wealthy man to provide for the fam. It might be a long time before you find the right one. And it is also possible that it will be never, you might never find that perfect woman. So, does your life end with that possibility? I hope not, that would be silly.

I am single, it really doesn't look like that will change, I may very well spend the rest of my life alone. That's Okay, I'd rather be alone than wish I was.

It can be tough being blood type A, especially when being compared to Brittany Spears or Adolf Hitler   

A's have great health when in balance and can exercise pretty hard pretty often as long as they pace themselves and have good recovery time to strengthen.  Brad Pitt and George Clooney are A, they are pretty smooth with the women

Chuck Norris probably has his own blood type, but he could be an A!

You can grill, eat out, drink beer, party, and be responsible and strong and sensitive for women as an A, or any blood type, just got to find the ways that work for YOU.  You can be you better than anyone else on earth!

Warrior, Teacher and Explorer are the Genotypes (from The Genotype Diet or Change Your Genetic Destiny also written by Dr. Peter D'Adamo) that blood type A people can be.  It is a different diet plan, using more components of your physical makeup, to change which genes have more influence over your life.

I still don't know where winner lives. It would help us understand the culture he lives in in order to advise him.

In the USA, we are used to all kinds of diets. Even in bars, they have chicken wings, & Perrier water.
Also, not everyone frequents bars or goes looking for one night stands!

There are other places to meet women/men.  There are all kinds of clubs, organizations, religious groups, charities, etc. to get involved in & be useful.  Sometimes being useful & having good friends is so fulfilling that the other stuff fades away.  Sure, there are men who will try to make you feel indequate, but they are often insecure themselves.

The image of America to the rest of the world is often Hollywood or street gangs, but there are lots of ordinary people living useful decent lives.  

The terms Warrior, Teacher, etc. are genotypes which Dr. D has calculated that further refine our diets & activities.  There are 6 genotypes that overlap with the 4 blood types. Type A can be any of or a combination of 3 of the types.  Don't worry about that. Concentrate on type A & see how that works. Remember that Dr. D is a type A & is not the stereotype of A.

As for women posting more often, remember that women talk more & therefore write more.  We often have more flexible schedules & can get on line more often for this type of thing.  I don't think too much about who is posting(whethere male or female). I do enjoy being a part of this community!

Again, please let us know where you are!  We want to help!!!!!!!!

While I wrote my longer post, 2 others posted. Take that into consideration when you read mine.

Maybe you should check into the genotypes, but I don't want you to be overwhelmed with the information overload.

Thanks!

I'd bet $20.00 Richard Gere has blood type A. Back in the day of An Officer and a Gentleman and Pretty Woman every lady wanted that delicious-looking thing. And he's only getting better as he's getting older    He's comfortable not being a he-man, and that's a whole other kind of man that a lot of ladies find all kinds of appealing

I'm from Europe. But it doesn't matter - USA or AFRICA - you got money and power - you got girls. You are healthy with middle class wage - you got wife.
You are ill - you got nothing.
You are healthy but with many food restrictions effecting a social life - .... feel free to guess..

@chrissyA - I think that all "pretty women" concept was based on non real world - the rich businessmen will overlook the hooker history and the Hollywood happy end is here.. c'mon.. I don't watch Disney, I don't watch romantic movies, I just look with my eyes open and think

anyway, I will look at this genotypes but I'm A+ so I hope it is not the worst from it...

@ winner

Let me ask you this: do you honestly notice that you feel much better when you abstain from gluten / follow the BTD perfectly? If not, my advice for you would be to take the BTD a whole lot less seriously. It seems the stress it gives you is doing more damage than the perfect diet is doing good.

My Swami recommends to avoid gluten, and I tried that for about half a year, but when I returned to gluten I actually felt better. Maybe not because gluten is some superfood, but certainly because I wasn't eating rice or beans all the time anymore. Now most hardcore-BTDers will probably say I didn't try long enough, somehow mismeasured myself or gave Swami some erroneous inputs, but me it teached to take this whole BTD thing with a whole lot grains of salt. Probably there's some truth to it, especially since I notice lots of what the BTD recommends coincides with my natural preferences. But the BTD isn't a theory carved in gold by some god, it is a theory 'made up' by (a) man. (No pun intended.) It may be (partially) wrong.

(FYI; Among the few things I've taken away from the BTD is that I've started to eat more fish and try to avoid red meat, plus that I have started to drink red wine more often. But other than that I mostly just eat what I feel like eating to, while avoiding the obvious unhealthy foods (candy, etc.) when I can.)

just my 2 cents

winner - I meant Richard Gere, the actor, not the character he played.

I for one am not going to buy into your suggestion that men with type A blood are less-than-manly.  Or that men who can't eat anything and everything are not real men. Simply not true.

I would much rather have a guy who took the care to take care of himself and eat less of a variety than some one who refused to listen to what his body was telling him, and ate the wrong stuff anyway, then walked around burping and farting all the time. Is that your idea of manly? That's up to you.
