hi there,

I had many health problems but it is not important for this post, but I found out that I should not be eating wheat and milk product..

I handle stress very bad

I was on one medical examine (not important) where all my hormons levels were tested and - all ok except cortisol - 2x higher level as normal..

When I do heavy weight lifting - gets sick..

after a long time a heard about blood types in life style and food..

I was always wondering why my friends can drink for 3 nights in row, sleep only a little or no sleep and do sport with no problem

but I really need to go sleep before 11:30 pm, at least 8 hours (minimum..) and when I drink alcohol for 2 nights - I will get ill (high fever..)

so I start to believe that this blood types is not a niche.. but

I'm a men! I wanna have my own business but it gives a lot of stress..

I should be the one in family who is supportive to his wife, I should be the "rock", she should be the "water"..

So what are my chances for a meaning full life? Has it a sense to live when you are a men with A blood type in this days?

Kids - stress, overnight no sleeps, money, insurance, has it even future as A+ men?

I'm 30, but I know 2 men with A blood types - both older, with lot of food allergies, another allergies and high blood pressure for example - both with no kids..

It is so unfair to have A! Should I don't have a kids and not to copy my A blood type to the future generation?

I my really sad to be A.. for what I should live any longer..?

just need to write somewhere...

Relax!  It isn't that bad.  Dr. D. is a Type A man, who has a family, his own medical practice and is teaching as well.

Learning to live with who you are is what this education is about.  Many Type A men have led long fruitful lives without this knowledge, but it will make for an easier life if you follow the guidelines.

Type A people are subject to higher cortisol levels than others, but this can be managed with diet and exercise.  Start at the beginning and replace the major avoid foods with beneficial foods, but do it at a pace that isn't stressful - and learn to do exercise that will relieve stress.

I know how you feel.

Except weight lifting usually makes me feel good. My muscles can get a bit over-tight, but I think that comes from lack of nutrition. (I haven't weight lifted in years)

If I could be healthy, I could actually drink and not sleep too much, etc. But I can't for the life of me get healthy. One day I think I'm doing a bit better, then I flop the next.

I don't know what your weight is like, but for me it is literally impossible to lose weight. That doesn't make me feel like a man, being physically impotent essentially, to have no ability to get better. Perhaps if I was born during a time where there was a reason to be smart over brawn, but I was not... But brawn these days can be just being skinny, depending on who is paying attention.

These days it is extra stressful to get a good job etc, so I know what you mean the aspect of having children and all that isn't that appealing. Now you can get canned at any moment, no good pay, no expectancy for benefits, nothing.

Plus anything that seems normal or natural to myself isn't considered attractive to anyone; my natural behavior is contemporarily worthless.

Its a lot different when you are healthier from the start. I can think of a few Type A's that are healthy, Warriors, but for me I get depressed because I can't keep up on macro-nutrient supplementation. I can gorge myself on vegetables all day and still be low on vitamin A, iron, calcium, etc. Then sometimes I realize I need to eat a bunch of protein because I'm depressed. I know Dr. D thinks it is just stress, but even when I'm not stressed out at all, my face will get red, feel like total expletive deleted, then get depressed or something. I can't seem to dig myself out of this...

I know it can take time to replenish the body's storehouse, remove old stored junk, and heal...  I've been working towards it for years myself.  

I can say that no matter where you are, you'll be better off by following these diet and exercise guidelines than not - even if you don't progress towards health at the rate you would like.

Keep listening to the body and providing for its needs.  I still deal with the roller-coaster, but I'm fortunate to have issues that I can see and feel things happening - although I still feel bad most of the time...

I've been on here for years now. Almost the entire time I've eaten really well by most standards.

I'm worse than when I started, even now, after going to the clinic. I'm better than I was when I showed up at the clinic, but still I only get to feel good once in awhile, maybe a few times a week. Its confusing because I think I'm doing well then I feel awful. But when I think about the accumulated sum, I feel like c**p pretty much all the time. And I know its suppose to go downhill from here? There comes a point where it'd be better to be dead. Earnest Hemmingway seems like a Type A Warrior, he offed himself because his body became so miserable that he could no longer enjoy life in any respects that were important to him. I feel that way often, anything I want to do I'm severally limited to participating in, if at all, and I'm half the age he was at death.

I know some young warriors enjoying youth... But I'm 27 now and I can't even remember that much about life between high school and now. Well I remember things, but I can't really put a thumb on the years. What is clear is the massive amount of things I've missed out on, and my body is at a point now where I don't know if I could say travel or do anything that I might of been able to a few years ago. It all seems like time wasted, confused time where I didn't really understand what was going on because of health, and now that I'm a little more clear minded I'm just looking at a downhill road.

thank you for your answers, but there is one big problem

Imagine you are gonna have a date (with a girl)

so.. she said " let's go eat some pizza" - ehmm.. I should not eat whey..

ok.. "let's have some icecream" ehmm.. theres milk in it

ok.." let's have some beer".. I hope that you know where I'm pointing..

I will be really happy to have 1.000.000 EURO on my bank account - it will give me a lot of "stressoff" )

I'm just curious how do you handle this staff with girls.. When is is younger and health.. with no money she wouldn't bother with "men" with A+.. or?

DoS - you must be kidding me - I'm skinny, many girls said to me "men must be big.. better fat men than skinny men" - don't loose weight, just be more confident...

Winner,

Any girl that is worth marrying will understand that you may have health challenges, either now or in the future, that require you to change diet or not eat specific foods.  Allergies, Diabetes, Cancer, Ulcer, are all issues that the Dr.'s have set up "special" diets to help patients deal with them.  Your diet is setup to help you keep your health, which should be worth more to any woman than having to attempt to fix it.

A good woman should be happy that you are willing to eat a special diet to be healthier, as most men really couldn't care less what they eat - and some won't acknowledge pain, etc., so they end up really sick before they do something about it.  
This really does seem to be more of a problem to your "macho" self-image than a caring woman's image of you.  When I dated my wife, I had allergies and other medical problems requiring "special care".

A's are old and have survived a lot of stressful c**p over the centuries!  A lot of Vikings were A and a lot of Samurai were A, some of the toughest most feared and respected!

If you believe you are weak and can't do something, then you can't.  The mind makes a difference.  If you are weak from eating wrong and not handling stress right, then things will feel tough and your mind will be scattered.  If you get your body in balance and listen to your body, then you can do a lot more and you will think better.

When you are healthy then you can eat the wrong stuff as a treat sometimes and it won't really make a difference.  Our minds can make it bigger than it really is.  Stress management is number one and that means eat right, exercise, and relaxation.  Negative thinking will ruin you, if someone doesn't like you for who you are, f em!

Try cortigaurd for your high cortisol levels, it works great.

And go help someone who needs help, get out of that pitty-pot attitude and outside of your problems.

And Joe is right (if you stick around here long enough you will find that Joe is always right   )

I don't find being on a type A diet that much of a problem when relating to women.

I know places that I can eat where usually I will not get sick. I make sure that we select someplace that I have a good chance of eating without problems. I find women are fairly acceptive of this. I avoid full explanation if I do not know people well, but I am open if they want to know why I need to avoid foods/places.

It is a little tricky, if you are in their home or their parents home.  Mostly I try to arrange things so that I cook rather than eating something she cooks.

This avoids situations where they spend hours making a dish and are going to be upset if I refuse to eat it, but I am going to be sick if I do.

If I can do so without making a big deal about it I find out what my guest's bloodtypes are and cook appropriately for both myself and them.

My Uncle..Mom's brother..Korean war vet, almost lifelong Navy man (age 17 to 70 and is now 80), fathered 4 children, grandfather to 8, great-grandfather to 6, is a fabulous cook, goes out dancing often, takes care of/manicures his 5 acres in the hill country of southern Texas, and was always popular with the ladies , is all of 5 ft. 8 inches, dark skin and black(now balding) hair, and an A+!!!
I would never call him "unmanly"!!!!!

My brother-in-law....6ft. 2 in., successful car dealer, father of 2, grandfather of 2, always a ladies man, also an A+! Definitely not a sissy!( Fighting Irish!)

If you need more examples check out celebrities with A blood type.

Grey rabbit is right. Have your little pity party for a few minutes then get over it and on with a life that you make interesting!

Soft exercises can help restore you, and supplements like ginseng or goat weed will restore energy levels.  Drinking tea and coffee helps too, and plenty of water.

Also, too frequent sexual activity can sap energy levels and cause imbalances in stress hormones, so you will not be able to drink as much without feeling sick and you will need more sleep to get the energy back.  

Also, different meds can really sap energy and effect you, so talk to your doc about the meds.

I'm glad that you are replaying to me.. it's just a little bad time for me

first about 5 years I was ill (as DoS said - I don't remember years alter collage too - it was very bad times for me..

and after that I finally found out why I was feeling sick, anxiety and low power - when I drop off wheat and milk product - it was like rebirth for me!!!

But the happiness didn't last for ever.. now I feel like an idiot

example:

after football we used to go to the pub

The waitress came and

nr1 "Can I get a beer and a PIzza 3 please?"
nr2 "Can I get a beer and a PIzza 1 please?"
nr3 "Can I get a beer, vodka and a PIzza 4 please?"
nr4 "Can I get a beer and a PIzza 3 please?"
nr5 "Can I get a beer and a PIzza 3 please?"
nr6 "Can I get a beer, vodka and a PIzza 5 please?"
nr7 "Can I get a beer and a PIzza 2 please?"
nr8 "Can I get a risotto with no butter please just with vegetables and a cup of green tea?"

..like a gay....

or in shop: 99% of foods are made from wheat or milk or both.. so I'm just really depressed right now, I was thinking that thinks like "the secret" will help me but instead of this I just found out a acceptable explanation of my food and stress situation..

I just feel that I will find a way how to eat what I want or I will move to japan where are no milk from cows and wheat foods consumed.. away from my family.. my friends.. my life...

don't they serve wine in that pub? Red wine is very good for type A. There are many women out there who would prefer a man who was a wine drinker rather than a beer drinker. Not many of us are attracted to beer bellies. I admit that eating out is challenging, but I can usualy find something that isn't too bad. If you are going to feel so deprived by all this, maybe you should re-evaluate things, prioritize.

I don't know that you need to do anything quite as drastic as leave everything and everyone.  It is an acceptance challenge that there are things that we may not be able to do, but there are rewards for accepting and living within the limitations our body puts on us.  
Remember, you can't change certain things about the body you live in, but you can make it as good as it can be - and diet / exercise is a large part of this.  Maybe not how you thought it would be or even how you think would be ideal, but sometimes we do have to change our expectations to more closely coincide with reality.
There are things that I will never be able to do and things that I know make me feel really bad when I do them, but I have to live with that knowledge and make the best me I can.  I hope you accept the limits you have, but learn to work within them to make a great life for yourself.  It is possible, even when people around you scoff at you doing it.  Man up and make success happen for yourself (and your future family, when applicable).

Just pointing out that Fu and Seitan are wheat based products used in Japanese cooking.

And of course western food products are widely available.

Japan imports 6 million metric tons of wheat a year or 13 billion pounds.

With a population of 127 million, that works out to 100 pounds of wheat per person per year.

Some is wasted, some goes to animal feed, but still a significant amount of wheat per person is eaten by people.



Trivia: since you have brought up pizza several times--Pizza Hut in Japan offers pizza with rice flour crusts.

Hope you pick yourself up and dust yourself off--

Women like men that have a softer side, reveal it and you will be successful with them.

Kindness goes a long way with women.

I hope you find balance  in your life.

Winner, seeing our limitations and accepting ourselves for who we are is a necessary part of coming into a place of maturity and inner peace.  Become your own best friend and start seeing your good qualities.  Without that self-acceptance, I have found that it's impossible to find others who will accept us as we are.

That's what this way of eating and way of living is all about anyway.  Dr. D'Adamo understands better than anyone I've ever found, how to help all the different kinds of  physiologies to maximize our strengths and minimize the effects that our genetic weaknesses have on our health.  You will most likely have some surprising happiness and fulfillment in your life, once you are able to work with your body without resenting it.

I like this thread.  Kind of like a Fresh Start thread for men.  Yeah, we should have a Fresh Start Thread For Men on this forum!  

I can totally relate to the stress of being a nervous A.  I had to leave behind the stress of living in a house with a wife and three grown children.  It was too much for me to handle.  My erratic behavior caused by all the stress caused my wife to really loathe me after a while.  

I now live by myself and, though it can be lonely at times, I love it most of the time.

Being in your 30's and wanting to be social with your friends and with women must be difficult.  I have no social life now, so don't have to worry so much about that.

Hang in there.  I even quit the forum and came back.  We A's are some erratic fragile people sometimes.  Be strong and you'll get through it.

Adam,  

Andrea, I agree. I dearly love my very typical O/hunter DH, but, there are times even after 39 years of marriage, that I want to see a "more easy, gentle spirit"...ok, more A-like  ....my DH is a gem and very sweet with the best sense of humor but he is that typical "bull in the china shop" in everything he does!   Just saying...a sensitive, deep thinker, good conversationalist, embracing his health kind of guy would be welcomed by most women I know!

that being said.....yes, please, man up....because women are attracted to that also!

ok, I read calun text, check her age (beautiful 61 years btw and it gives me a complete picture..

"Just saying...a sensitive, deep thinker, good conversationalist, embracing his health kind of guy would be welcomed by most women I know!" = yes, of course.. I have a friend, he is about 30 years old. All his life he was make a girlfriends with women about 38 and more.. All he always hearing was staff like "you are so net, so good talker, so good listener, I don't understand why you don't have a gf at your age"

I understand it very good. I know that Mrs. Calun just wanna be polite but frankly the 30 years old men who is net, good talker and good listener is welcomed by most women - as a best friend. NOT LOVER! No a single f. was given by this way )

I don't want to say that you are lying, just writing a "younger" version for younger boys here.

You have proofed it by sentence "my DH is a gem and very sweet with the best sense of humor but he is that typical "bull in the china shop" in everything he does!"

I don't know what the GEM is but "bull in the china shop" saying for everything. You didn't married some "sensitive, deep thinker, good conversationalist, embracing his health", you have married "bull in the china shop". And that is doing EVERY SINGLE PRETTY GIRL between 20 and 30. Then wanna MEN, not deep thinker.

My second friend (A+, allergic to almost everything, having no clue about diet, don't wanna listen to me) is a VIRGIN! He is 35 and speaking with him is like a orgasm for the soul of philosopher. He is smart, very intelligent, soft, good, net, not so ugly (I think.. I don't know for 100% ) but he is ill and alone.

I'm not really sure how the typical girlfriend for A boy will looks like. The girls what I'm attracted to (I cannot change it, it is in me, I hope that it is clear) are beautiful, strong, "quality", the top ones..

I got a solid numbers of the lets say fun with this types but it was when I was playing a theater - using low voice, short sentences, acting more manly, primitive (something like taxi driver or truck driver) but of course dressed well and acting like a businessmen. I got what I wanted but at the morning when I become myself it was like "who are you? you are like a kid.. you are not the same as a last night.." I was funny, smiling, happy.. yes.. and A+ typical..

I think that girls can sub consciousness "feel" who are you and they are simply attracted to better blood types, more manly, businessmen which handle stress well.

Anyway, I need to men up - I will start doing tai chi and sh.t and using "the secret" to meet and have one beautiful (young) wife. And be very rich and healthy of course...

Your feelings are typical "winner", men want sex and women want someone to provide for them. It's the same story over and over no matter where you are. I'm not just saying it, it's something that has been studied by psychologist for many years. I suggest you stop worrying about it so much and work on your health issues.

You want to be as healthy as you can because that is something women (either consciously or unconsciously) are looking for, you have to be healthy in order to be able to be the provider.

You want to get bigger, more muscular? Make sure you are eating QUALITY protein at a ratio at  least  0.8 g/kg body weight. Are you a novice weight lifter? If so, to build muscle you want to lift weights that are 70- 80% of your one rep max. Do 1 to 3 sets of 8-12 reps with a rest interval of 1-2 minutes. Do this 2-3 days a week. Make sure to rest your muscle groups one day between these sessions. Start the session with large muscles and progressively move to the smaller muscles. Make sure you move the weights slowly and that you are not using velocity to help move them- that is counter productive and you can hurt yourself. Get someone to help you determine your 1 rep max, you need a professional here!

Focus on taking care of yourself. Women are also attracted to self confidence, it's another sign that you are capable of taking care of them, and that does seem to be the kind of woman you are looking for.

Weight lifting doesn't change the shape of my body.

When you are confronted with intellectual side of things being all you have to offer because your body can not be changed to any noticeable degree with exercise... Well due to health I've been unable to engage very well on intellectual pursuits. I am usually incapable of reading or studding to any large degree. I can't get the level of work done to be competitive in that realm. Its like start anew at my age.

I know what winner is talking about. It doesn't help to say one thing, do another. Women truly do not care about how smart a man is, or willing to listen. At least not these days. Either they are your bull in a china shop, or they fit a certain sort of shopping list of features (irregardless to how well interactions go). Women often figure out that they might want something different, but not until they are old.

So, can a type A man be both a "bull in a china shop" and sweet, sensitive, philosophical?

Winner, can you tell us what country you live in. It might give better info about your cultural surroundings & even diet.
We have many here from English speaking countries that might be able to help you.

Also, some of us do better on the diet than others or take longer to get better.  Some are extremely allergic to certain foods. One woman can't even touch wheat.  At least most of us can touch avoids.  You may have things that bother you more, maybe even pollutants in the air.

Stay with this forum/message board. It is the best in the internet with helpful people.
Even Dr. D writes once in a while.

I know many type O's who are sick, extremely depressed, obese, lonely, on medication etc, just as many A's also so don't think any blood type is better than another!

My sons are A+ and have many lovely women in their lives.  My sons are also intelligent, witty, happy and attract others by being so.  Their friends and family give them much joy, they healthy & active.
My grandfather, my father, my father-in-law, my brother, one brother-in-law & uncle are all charming Type A men who are happily married and have rewarding lives doing what they enjoy.  

We are given but one life, we can either focus on the negatives (we all have them) or go out do what we love as if it is the last day we have.

I will also quote one of the comments:

"Couldn't have said it better Alan! I run into this ALL the time... I am GF too but as soon as a date finds out about it, I am history! Most of the GF married people I know if the wife is GF, the husband is too to support her and make it easier, but if the husband is the one who is GF, the wife is not. Women today are soooo self-centered!"

GF is gluten free btw...

I couldn't read what Kate had to say, it crashed my browser.  But if this is about dating and being gluten free maybe you need to find gluten free females to date.  I know there are gluten free forums and gluten free groups that meet in cities where you could meet gluten free people.  And as for the date itself Mazzio's has gluten free pizzas and some places serve gluten free beer.  But you're right, it does suck.  And  modern women can be pigs, I'll admit.

Aw, come on people...I see the problem.  The world revolves around wheat and dairy.  And if you are accustomed to bar hopping and picking up random hotties well gluten and dairy free is a game changer.  Just imagine said hottie dropping by one morning with muffins and lattes and you have to say, "I can't eat those" and watch her sunshine smile turn to a big ugly pout and "poof" you never see her again.  Sympathy is in order but no1curr. When a playa loses his game it's tragic. Show some luv.

I don't doubt that many are, but I'm sure that there are some women who are not, as well.  It can seem like you'll never find one, but you need to like you AND be a good man to be able to attract her.  You may also need to be willing to cook, if you have the special diet.  She may be able to benefit from your diet knowledge as well, but don't force it on her.

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.

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.

I do think winner will feel better the more he eats what his body needs. His appeal will probably increase.

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!

Being an explorer is like not being blood type A at all though. I don't think those are good examples.

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.

Quoted from grey rabbit
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.


I stay out of the Fresh Start thread because I view it as a place for the ladies on the board to get together and hash things out about the diet and the particulars about their lives.  It is unfortunate that there are hardly any blood type A men on this board.  I also feel like there is no support structure for men on this board in general.  But, do the men really need support in keeping in line with the diet as much as women do?  Again, we get back to the flawed concept of men need to "man-up" and be strong.  This concept doesn't really work for me.  I'm a pretty sensitive guy and just try to get through day-to-day and just try to "get along" as the old Teacher saying goes in the GTD.

As for me in my personal life, I finally got divorced last month after a year's separation.  I've been through many emotions over the past year:

- ecstatic that I was finally free to eat and cook how I wanted
- loving having a place of my own to keep neat and clean, not dirty and messy as the old house was
- sad and depressed from being alone
- missing my family dearly as I wasn't around them daily anymore
- thinking every day that I should go back to my wife
- finally meeting her to talk about that, she not wanting me back, and having to accept that rejection in my mind and my heart
- my kids barely calling and when they do they usually ask for something, usually money
- going compliant on my SWAMI and then dropping it completely and eating whatever I wanted, then paying for it dearly, and repeating this cycle over and over again
- then telling myself "you moved out so you could cook and eat compliant"..."and you can't even stay compliant, wow, what a failure you are!"

It has been a long lonely road, but I move forward.  Currently 100% compliant, watching my allowed servings on my SWAMI (which reduced recently last time I ran it, which makes more sense now).  

My #1 goal now is to lose the weight.  Topped out at 253 lbs.  Ridiculous!  I can barely walk now.  It is absolutely necessary now that I drop the weight.  My ideal weight is 185.  I'm carrying around a 65 pound weight all the time, no wonder I can barely get around.

My #2 goal is wellness, both physically and emotionally/spiritually.  

And so long as I follow my SWAMI, watching my portions, #1 goal will happen and #2 will be the side benefit of that.

I think support, both needing and giving it, isn't gender specific.
I'm sorry to read you feel that there's less of a support structure for men on these boards, Adam.

What you've been through is very tough; even though there are positive sides to the new situation, I can clearly see the pain you also feel, regarding your children, for example. It must be hard for you.

You've set yourself two goals, and I wish you all the best in achieving them. Even though I'm a woman, and can't offer man-specific support, I'd still like you to know that I'm here to support you in getting better. And I'm sure I'm not the only one here who feels that way.

Adam,
I realize that it isn't an easy road when no one around you understands or sympathizes with the struggles you are going through.  I also realize, however, that this is no excuse to throw in the towel and quit what's working, even if it is slow progress.  
I know I am very fortunate to have a caring, supportive wife, a practitioner that understands the struggles I'm going through and can help get me back on track, if needed, and some friends who are uplifting, even though they may not know the extent of the struggles, etc...  This is why I spend so much time on this forum providing answers, the best I know how, to people asking questions.  I try to fit some compassion around the tough and may take the tough too far sometimes, but it is the only way I know to get the job done.  If I don't take care of myself, who will?

This whole lifestyle, and life in general, is, "What can I do at the next bite (or step) to get me to my goal?".  This is the way I approach life, and frankly, the way I try to motivate others to take control of theirs, as well.

Adam, it sounds like you are moving forward and that is good. As with 2degrees, I am female and cannot offer that male voice-one reason I see ABJoe as so valuable on these boards.

I too went through a painful divorce not that long ago, but it was a very different situation and I only felt relief. So I understand a little bit of your struggle. Keep up the good work.

Adam,
I am impressed by your resolve!
I am sorry for the pain you've endured but want to encourage the positive for you.
Your goals are great and I know we all absolutely support that. I will learn from you...(I procrastinate too often and need reminders of the goals I have. )
Please don't apologize for being sensitive.....  "real men" need that! It doesn't take away any masculinity.
Hoping for uplifting, caring people to come into your life and that your children realize what they are missing.
I admire you for making a stand and living the way that is no longer toxic for you!
