I would like to begin a garland for Dr. D that is created from our expressions of gratitude to him.  I suggest that we write these posts addressed to him, instead of about him.  I know that we have all shared stories of how our lives have been improved because of him.  These beautiful posts are scattered throughout the Forum, and I know Dr. D has missed reading a lot of them because he can't possibly read every post that we write.  He is too busy doing the wonderful things that we are grateful for!  

So, Dr. D, this is for you, with such deep gratitude, I don't even know how to condense it into words.  What you have done with your brilliant mind has given me what I needed to put my life back together.  I really thought my quality of life was finished.  So many traumas, illnesses and being beaten down by the pain of life had taken the joy out of me.

I have followed the blood type diet for a decade and the genotype diet for more than two years, and all I can do is shake my head in amazement!  Life is good!! My health is returning in force, and I have hope that my future will continue to get better and better.

So, much love and gratitude from me to you!  



Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are.
Let me not pass you by in quest
of some rare and perfect tomorrow.

Really I have a deep trust and gratitude for Dr D work!
What a great knowledge to use adaptogens + vit C for me, or I would be in deep adrenal exhaustion and in many ways this is my way to cope.
From these books and this syte I am learning to ask myself and others our best, as so it is with mental and body health. We can reach for our best heritage !
I had also the skill to get my celiac tests, that a well-known and experienced allergologist had before denied me as an odd idea, after a description of my toddler colitis and my brother's diagnosis at weaning five years later.
I wait amazed for the next news here Dr D!

Dr D. .. the biggest respect I can show you is to call you here today by your full name  ..

To: Dr. Peter D'ADAMO!

I am sitting crying over the thought of the possibility of this post ever being seen by you..

I am overwhelmed with gratitude..

I suffered pain all my life, stomach pain for 32 years and the insult of a doctor, recommending that I see a shrink or make a baby.. I KNEW that neither was my issue. After switching doctor out of his office I found a doctor who cured my pain over night.. (and no x-ray-'s, before I had been exposed to 168 x-rays over ten years just to find out if I had, this or that or some other thing-- and nothing worked (O and milk)  

I learned much from Adelle Davis....

After on accident I suffered pain every where for 30 years and had every label including the catchall fibromyalgia.. after many dollars spent on everything, I discovered that I could feel better taking extra doses of Manganese and Vit B / it took my pain away.

THEN..I discovered your book and it made it all come together. I started to Eat Right 4 My Type and started to talk to everyone who would stand still long enough to hear my fabulous success with BTD.  I bought every book, every card, every item just so I could learn, compare and make healthful progress.

I no longer am exposing my body to x-rays, I no longer eat the wrong (standard) food (unless I am willing to pay a price for it) I feel wonderful, I am grateful for the hundreds and thousands I no longer 'need' to spend on trying to feel good. I am terrific!!!  

I met you years ago...  and I wish I could be a fly on the wall of your world.. What fabulous things we learned in language we understand..

Just recently I introduced the next generation to this board and she is on her way to learn to admire your work.  May you be blessed with a LOOOOOONG productive life! May all my best wishes be coming your way and some day when you are getting the Nobel Prize for Science, I will stand there and cheer you on so that you can give the world more of your wonderful insights and abilities to heal our body's and mind! Thanks!!  JB  

So what is  N~1 ??  


Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

I've been wanting to post success stories from other sources.

All are tributes to your hard work and ground breaking scientific knowledge, Dr. D!
Thank you for all your dedication!

Quoted Text
Dear Dr. D'Adamo-

I wanted to simply say....you rock!

I've struggled the last three years with a blood disorder and because of
lack of insurance, have had to be my own health advocate. I've had to find
what foods work and don't work for my personal health challenges.

I noticed a rather large difference in my body and the way it reacted to
foods I omitted, such as gluten. Then about 4 months ago a family member had
suggested I try your "diet." Even though I had heard about you and your work,
at the time, I thought what I was doing was enough. However, after
incorporating a type A diet into my life, I can tell you I feel even better!

Of course, because of particular medical intervention I was unable to obtain, I
more than likely have residual nerve damage and other issues from my disorder.
But, because of using food as my medicine rather than my poison, I can say with
confidence, I have come a long way in healing my body. I ate well before I
became sick, but, eating foods that actually support my blood type, has definitely
helped.

So, thank you! Thank you for enabling others like myself to change their life
for the better, by accessing information you have made possible through your
hardwork

Many blessings to you on your continued success in all that you do!

In love-n-light....

Tracy

Prof. Dr. Uhlenbruck should promote Dr. D for the Nobel prize in "put in a category that fits the needs".

Saved countless people's life
Brought countless people quality back into their lives
Reanimated countless people's life
Fights a war without weapons
<...>
put in whatever is necessary to express your ideas / feelings
<...>

Reminded me of what I always wanted to do: helping people and so I started an education as a natural health professional (Heilpraktiker) in Germany although I got a 10 hours day job.

Thanks Dr. D. and to the people in this forum.

There are no words Dr. D that can truly express what your research and treatment have done for me and my whole family.  Not only are you a great, insightful doctor but you care.  You keep so many plates spinning but still manage to be in the moment.  You are so very special.  Thank you!

This link is my testimonial.  http://www.dadamo.com/cgi-bin/Blah/Blah.pl?m-1276008757/

Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Dr. D, I really appreciate this high-quality Forum that you've provided for us as a support system.  It makes all the difference in the world to be able to talk with folks who are dedicated to health and healing.  This space is a sanctuary for us to come to when we want to talk with like-minded people who understand why we choose to approach food the way we do.

OK, Dr. D. I'm going to make it short and sweet since I know what a busy guy you are!

One simple question from an ND, "What is your blood type?" and my whole life was changed. I went from her office, to a local beef farm and the healing began.

There isn't a word for that kind of gratitude.

If it's not enough that you're my hero, I am getting to walk the Brooklyn Bridge in your presence. I will try to contain myself.

I have learned so much here. After following the BTD for 10+ years I didn't think it could get any better, but the GTD sounded so intriguing, turn up the good genes, turn down the bad ones? Had to try it and swami, wow, my own personal list of foods for me. I didn't really have any health issues when I started all this, and now I'm confident that I'm not likely to develop any!

Thank you!

Dr. D,
You've given me a new lease on life.  When hope was all but expired, you've lifted me out of the depths of chronic illness and have restored within me the zeal for life I once had as a child.  I'm eternally grateful for your dedication and research!

Dr. D'Adamo,

I appreciate the passion you have for your work; it is easy to see that it is truly a labor of love. I admire your strength and courage that even when skeptics criticize or berate your research that you continue on as only a true professional would. This, in my opinion, makes you, sir, a true warrior. I thank you for sharing with us, all that you have learned and for giving us the tools and skills to make our lives change for the better in regards to our health and mental well being.

With Respect and Thanks!
Frosty

Since october 1999 on my A-diet and since the Genotypediet and Swami I have been able to finetune my diet even more..

Often I wonder where I would have been, healthwise and lifewise, if I had not been drawn to your books Het Bloedgroepdieet and Leven volgens je Genen..
My bp would have remained skyhigh, my kidneys would certainly have caused me problems in time. My edema would have become a fact 'to get accustomed to live with'.
I would certainly not have been able to take important decisions in order to become a happy person..

Hhhhmmm.. all these ailments have vanished since listening to my body with the help of your priceless books  
You are awesome Peter D'Adamo and you deserve the Nobel prize for Health..
Your dedication to share your knowledge with us is priceless!

Considering in what kind of world we live in nowadays with all its nutritional and medical mainstream but intoxicating seductions that are 'normal' for the bigger part of mankind, I feel privileged and grateful to be able to know the difference...
We, on this way of life, we are not to be 'infected' by ingredients in foods and skincare, drinks that hijack our health.

Especially now we have to wake up and stay alert in order to understand what is happening globally. We need to wake up spiritually so that we can stand up for ourselves when integrity of our bodies and minds is being violated. Thinking of genemodified foods, the wish of our 'leaders' to implant mankind with nanochips, all for our 'safety'...

Peter, your books made the difference in my life..

Thank you for being right here in my life..

Dr. D:

Your Genotype Diet is truly brilliant.  We have 3 generations who strive daily to stay on it, my 81 year old mom (A+ Warrior), 47 year old me (A+ Warrior), and my 21 year old son (A+ Teacher).  I just love it that you are a Warrior just like me!  

Unlike many here, I don't have any particular physical ailments, other than slowing down in middle-age and getting fat around the middle.  But, getting small heart palpitations and breathing heavy to get around, well, I just said "Enough!".  My Dad died of a heart attack at 49 and I'm 47!  Yikes!  So, I really want to shed that fat and feel young again, bouncing around the 2 mile campus lake like it is nothing, just like in my 20's.

And, to one day come to your clinic and be examined by you personally, that, sir, would be an honor and distinct pleasure.  Keep up the good work...and I so look forward to getting the SWAMI!

Adam

Thank you so much for putting this book out.  It has saved my life!
Foods were making me so ill.  It was getting to the point there was almost nothing I could eat!  I was packing the weight on.
Now, after reading your book, I know what to eat, what to stay away from, and why.
I am getting better.  I'm losing weight, and my doctor is thrilled with the improvements.  I'm so excited!

Thank you, again.

Dr. D...Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Here is a list of how you've improved my life. I don't know how I can ever thank you enough. What you've done for the world is priceless.

1.) Chronic constipation (I used to go once every two weeks and now I go 1/day!)

2.) Bad cramps and PMS (Now I have regular pain free cycles)

3.) Depression and Anxiety (I was on almost every prescription medication and now I am drug free and naturally happy and high from beneficial foods)

4.) Vericose veins (I started getting spider veins behind my knees at the age of 13. They started turning to vericose veins at age 22. After being on the diet for 3 years, the spider veins are completely gone.

5.) Alienated from the world (Now I understand my personality and others better from learning about my blood type personality. I can relate better to others and I'm more accepting about life. I don't fight with reality anymore...I just accept it.)

6.) I've met wonderful life-long friends from this forum, facebook, and various Eat Right groups.

A little over 2 years ago I thought I was doomed to a crappy quality of life & some inevitable autoimmune disease.  I've always felt that I had the most rotten luck, never win anything.  Now, I can honestly say that this is not true....one day waiting around in Borders a book on a shelf with bright red letters caught my eye.

I thank you from the bottom of my heart & the highest regard for such a great man.  If I am part of a "cult"  I am a happy member.

I learned about Eat Right from my Natural Path when I was feeling absolutely helpless about my sons health issues.  I had taken him to get his booster shots prior to Kindergarten (feared into it).  He has never been the same. But through the A type diet, he is no longer having the issues he was.  He went from lights out to hardly ever getting sick! He detoxed from the diet and it was scary for me! He had a thick white hair like coating on his tongue, high fevers, sweating for almost 3 weeks.  He was 5 then and now he is a wild 8 year old doing great.  We know what we need to do if we see signals that he's eaten something not on the beneficial or neutral list It has changed all our lives...now I use it for my second son he is 3, no shots and is an AB.  I am just now looking into your supplements and I thank you whole heartedly for your research and help for all of our types!!

Hello - I just wanted to Sincerely Thank you for giving me the knowledge to "Eat Right for My Blood Type".  I have lost 23 pounds in less than 10 weeks and I feel Fabulous!!  Everyone is asking how I lost so much weight so fast and I'm telling them all about this!

I initially tell them that it is not a "diet", it's a way of life and to me, it completely makes sense.

I just wanted to express my appreciation and let you know how this has changed my eating habits for the better.  I will remain eating this way for the rest of my life because I know it's healthy for me and I feel confident that the weight will stay off!

Sincerely,

Sharon

I am going to be opening my own website soon. This will be an infoprenure site where I will be sharing my personal battle of dealing with Rheumatoid Arthritis as week as eating for my blood type.  Less than a year after getting this disease I was introduced to following your blood type diet. I will definitely be referring my readers to your website and encouraging them to purchase your books to follow this health plan for themselves.  I would also like to send a personal "Thank you" for sharing your knowledge of this to the public.  This has totally changed my life to the better.

I had been waiting for this moment for a few months ... You have heard me say before: it will soon be a year,  ... I had been here almost a year ... and so on and on my posts went on, until now ...  now the time is here!!! One year old!!!

No wonder I have been feeling so good!! Even though I have been moving through different Geno Type plans during that time.  (Teacher, Warrior, Teacher and now Explorer), this way of life has kept me away from the big damaging food items and healed my system in such a way that encouraged me to stick around and progress in this journey of discovery!!! It showed me how to manage stress and understand the signals from my body well enough to act quickly and promptly applying the knowledge gathered through the literature and information published in this website.

It fixed my elevated liver enzymes and B12 deficiency, my cholesterol and tendency for my weight to yo-yo as a result of crash diets and eating avoids.  Within 3 months my lab results were good enough to impress my doctor, had not only lost weight in the  double digits, but most importantly, had arrested the tendency of putting it all back on soon after. Although recently experiencing a plateau for about 6 months, even though I had been very compliant, unlike plateaus experienced with other crashed diets, this one has allowed me to keep on eating as much as I needed, not worrying too much about the amounts and frequencies.  Over time the hungry pangs became less and less while the internal healing was taking place and the portions sorted themselves up.  

And now, the plateau is breaking, the weight is moving down again, the tape measure has shorten up a few centimetres and I am on a roll!!! Enjoying my lifestyle with boundless energy, restful night sleeps and living a secured balanced lifestyle appropriate for my type under the guidance of Dr D!!!  

Thank you for this forum that opened up its pages to accept me as a member a year ago and allowed me to record my journey, step by step, all through this year in a couple of threads ... it is all there ... a testimony of my steady journey in this path.  

Thank you for your research and sharing it with us, thank you for your humanitarian caring traits that feed that genius spark that produced the BTD, GTD, SwamiX and all the ones to come ... soon to see masterpieces ...aiming to heal humanity!!   We are blessed to be here enjoying your work...  

This is not a diet, it is a lifestyle that lead us to find our true self, it is not a speed race, although there is room to move very fast and very slow, it is a journey of healing, even when we think we do not need any healing, this lifestyle is taking care of that,  very clever Dr D!!! Thank YOU!!!

I have just recently looked at the diet reccommenddedd by someone advertising the list of foods for diabetes.. What a crime it would be IF I was one of those unfortunate people who eat two slices of bread morning and a cup of juice, noon and night and then have to take meds to counter all that..  

I am still uncertain about all the right answers/stuff that went in the editors trash, like does it help to eat very few sweets or should one only eat those that are low in sugar carbs and very few of them?  The books don't talk about carbs much compared to calories.  I eat many more calorie dense food then anyone I know, and I might need to adjust that- yet when I don't eat that way, then I seem to add more sugar of one sort or the other.  Even a few small chunks of pineapples will add up..

BUT little by little I will 'get it' whatever that is. I started as early as 1967 by eating meat over other things and I made the trip through LOW carbs to Atkins then to BTD and I am certain OF ONE THING.. without that instinctual way of eating, I saved myself from many years of suffering diabetes results I still have avoided to this day.

But my numbers are high enough so that I finally have to deal with it and I still have many questions.  I just re-read the carb counter book of 1977 and again can see how the BTD is on target by so many miles ahead of anyone else.. (why oh why are the 'others' allowed to post such misleading stuff on the net with 'official' sanction?? )

Even reading your Dad's book gave me the one sentence that: bananas are for once in a blue moon. How right, yet diabetics are told to eat banana every day just to make up for the pills that deplete their normal fluid functions.. My thanks to him also..

To you all the best and so many thanks for NAP as well.. a world of difference..

I just registered for this site about 15 minutes ago.  I was diagnosed in May 2010 with Celiac Disease via a blood test and an endoscopy.  Went to my doc with stomach/chest pains and stinky gas (sorry folks!).  I really had none of the usual symptoms which are diarrhea and/or vomiting.  I'm Type 1 diabetic too (insulin shots) and I understand they are prone to celiac.

Anyway, I've been working pretty hard to get gluten out of my diet, and read labels to be sure there's no hidden gluten (and there's a lot of it...even in cosmetics!).  The process is slow and I must be diligent...difficult for me because I like to give up easily out of sheer exhaustion or brain overload (one of the many symptoms of celiac).  Even though I'm off gluten (as far as I know) I'm now experiencing symptoms that haven't really been there before.  So that makes me wonder about other food allergies and if they can mimic the fatigue, anxiety, sadness, acid stomach and inside of mouth burning, blah blah blah.

I went to a dietition and she said to check out the BTD.  Interesting I had the book about 8 years ago, even found out if I was a secretor or nor...but I don't remember my blood type nor whether I'm a secretor or non-secretor...damn!  Looks like I have to start all over again.

So, until I get tested again, I just guessed I was Type O...the most common, just for starters (I remember being disappointed because I wasn't "special") but then thinking maybe I'm a Type A.  The BIG difference for me is that one of them  (is it Type O?) suggests I should be drawn to high impact exercising...NOT!!!!  I'm more of a yogi than anything...tho I'm too tired to do that now.

So, I guess what I'm trying to share or ask is:  If I'm off gluten...been very careful...do some of these other symptoms resemble other food allergies that the BTD might help?????

Thanks!

P.S.  If anyone needs to talk about Celiac, you're welcome to private message me.  Since I just joined site, i'm not sure when this can be done...or even when this post will show up in the forums.

Just to say... really enjoying following this plan (I'm Type A). Am feeling really good. Also, as an aside, I have lost the last bit of pregnancy weight (had my baby 3 months ago and had a few stubborn pounds to go) without even trying! I can't recommend this plan enough, and the support (from website and this page) is excellent. Thank you!

I have never understood, why some people claim that blood type diet has not enough scientific basis, or it were a fad diet. What I have read, I think ND. D'Adamo has researched this already before the publication of the first book "Eat right 4 your type" in 1996 and still continues his research and now not even alone. I have followed the blood type diet over a year and got good results despite the fact that I HAVE NOT followed it with 100% adherence, because I have mixed the blood type diet for type O, genotype diet for hunter, and also a bit low carb diet.
I almost believe, that without D'Adamo's blood type diet, I still might be a fat diabetes patient BMI over 30 when it is now between 25 and 27. Before I had a BMI about 38, so I am very happy to have found the blood type diet. I try to eat the beneficial and superbeneficial foods and avoid the avoids, even if it is not always possible as far as I DO NOT comsume the avoids on reglular basis everyday.

I had to experience it to believe it: I've been taking the Fucus Plus supplement for almost 45 days now, and I've lost almost 15 pounds!! This has never happened to me before...I've loosely been using the O bloodtype eating suggestions, which has also contributed to my success. Thanks, Dr. D'Adamo!!
Yes, I have another 15 lbs that would put me at my ideal weight...there's no stopping now!  Thanks for your encouragement!

Hi Doctor Adamo -
I am very happy and enthusiastic to have found your website and all of your teories, and if I think that I have your book and bearly read, "Eat right for your type" since almost 5 years probably...., I don't know what to say.
I am studing your book, and now I will all of your website. I have a degree in Biology back from Italy, my country, where I was a Laboratory technician. You are my eroe, you are a genius, just like for "Bob" his psychiatrist, and baby step book, in "What about Bob", but don't worry I am not crazy like him! I do like and am fascinated from this type of personalities,and this is why I love watching movies like, this, or Rain Man(my prefered), or like now I am a pretty fan of the TV serial "Monk", and developing my obsessive compulsive disorder for hygiene and order even more!
I just read about my type, the type A, and ordered the basic pack; you have centered my type and personality, so it is true about this. I must to believe, and will make to believe all of the people that surround me. I am also so anxious to tell to my naturopatic who was trying to suggesting me, an italian , to avoid the wheat because of somewhat high level of gliadin antibody IgG, but still inside negative values. I understand now reading the book and the selection for blood type in the different of beneficial or to avoid food, but still I do not want to believe this. I am willing to understand that I must avoid animal protein, and of course to reduce my intake of bread and pasta, but I cannot live without!
Excuse me me if I have been so invadent and so long, who knows if you ever can read these messages, and forgive my excitement, but it's quite time that I am having all of the sort of problems, and I am so tired and exhausted being in the menopausa period too.
I can wait to start with your products and to try to follow my right diet type.
Very nice to meet you!

Greetings!

I am Type O, living in California and last Friday 08/27/10 diagnosed with some form of lupus (per my physician, "levels are off the chart high!") and no known symptoms.  Discovered ER4YT Book ten years ago and immediately committed to change my diet and have experienced tremendous improvement. No more rashes on nose, ears, fingers and scalp.  No more profuse sweating, shortness of breathe, coughing, sneezing, constipation and the list goes on.

Prior to ER4YT info for more than 20 years took alfalfa tabs and ate the raw stuff.

I truly believe that this dis-order appearing in my blood can be naturally corrected.
Thank you.

I was put on bifosphosonates for osteoporosis at 42 and I read enough to stop soon the treatment. There is no data on long term treatment and it makes the bones harder but not elastic so you can broke them with a bad fall however . With BTD at 49 my bones are elastic for vit C and adaptogens and I can fall without fractures 7 year later. As  my ovaries do not function since birth this is great empowering for me, to get a diet with plenty of calcium and  vit C and a gut to absorb it (and I am celiac) !  Bravo a thousand times Dr, D'Adamo !

I started this new eating plan about two weeks ago, I am an A, my husbnad is an O. I have always cooked diffrent for my husband or incoorperate somewhat ate like suggested, of course I am now fine tunning and learning. I have been drinking Soy Milk for years, I am learning about other soy products. I cleaned out th...e pantry anything un open I donated to the soup kicthen. I stocked up on foods for A's & O's, I lost 6 pounds, without trying, I feel so much better already. I am regular with bowel movements. Some of you know, how uncomfortable it can be, if that area does not work well. A friend of mine suggested your eating plan. I purchased Eat right 4 Your Type, and also the pocket version for A for my purse for when on the road. I will also buy all others. I am giving away all of my other live & cook right for your type. This makes sense, I know I will stay healthy with eating right. What a Blessing, sorry I got long winded.

I absoultely live by the A type diet......I lost 35 pds about 3 yrs ago. Granted I do have to have beef now and again but bascially eat fish and poultry. I think cutting out potatoes and anything cabonated helped alot.

So, here are the results!After one day on the ER4YT for Blood Type O I had absolutely no acid reflux after eating a meal.This was the first time in six years I could recall not feeling bloated and feeling like I had thumb tacks in my esophogas after eating."

"this is all so interesting to me. What was amazing to me was how the food I ate was making my body even more acidic than it already was. I can't even take vit C because of it. I was getting bladder infections monthly and was told by my doctor that I had to change my diet or I was at a higher risk for cancers...since I have changed my diet and cut out soda. Amazingly I have had no bladder or kidney infections since (about 5 yrs now) . WOW "

Nonnies Rock! Because I love to cook and create it is great modifying and creating recipes that work for me.  I think because I'm a B blood type I have quite a variety of foods I can work with.  Now that I'm compliant with my diet I can afford to treat myself on occasion to a once loved "avoid" with little to no noticeable effect unless I REALLY over do it.  And believe me, this is a wonderful thing because, before I had this knowledge, I felt I was quickly approaching "the other side".  I just listen to my body, pay attention to how I'm feeling.  There are SO many alternatives to eating what we have been trained to eat - really GOOD alternatives that taste so good and make you feel like ...dare I say it? A SECRETOR!   There is also a lot of help on this forum from those who have gone before and are experiencing the same things I have.  You can become healthy, strong, fit, energetic, sharp minded and enjoy life and pursue dreams you thought you could never chase with Dr. D's fabulous gift to humanity.  I am!!!   And I'm soooooo grateful

Still loving this eating plan.. I like to call it an eating plan rather than diet because for me it will be for life! ) Have lost 32kg so far and have maintained that.. onto my next phase where I hope to lose another 10-15kg, am O rh Neg and ate mostly the Beneficial foods for the first month which boosted the weight... loss. Plus.. you can feel the difference of feeling way better and more energetic compared to lapsing back to the "bad" foods and feeling c**p! You soon learn what can trigger fatigue/generally feeling low... and how to boost your mood too.

Dear, Dear Dr. D' Adamo,

How does it feel to be a star?  This is what you are to so many of us around the world.  Who can explain the gratitude for the work you have done which has literally restored so many lives to such a quality of living that we never thought possible?

From the time I was a teenager I recall having health issues I didn't understand.  To date I still don't know exactly what was causing some of my issues but I can tell you, with your diet those troublesome and some debilitating issues are gone or well under control.

*When I was younger I would notice how I would get dizzy, just standing in line at a store, or just feel weird/uncomfortable/hot and need to sit down.  This carried through to my adult life.  I don't have this issue anymore eating geno type compliant.

*I used to get urinary tract and bladder infections on a regular basis.  I recall one instance, rushing in my car, in such pain, to the hospital with a bad infection.  Now? I can't remember when the last one was.  It's been years.

*My mental concentration and sharpness were squashed to the point I feared I would be fired from my job as I was not able to follow through with tasks and I began to forget pertinent and very important issues that needed to be tended to.  I began to forget even saying things or doing particular tasks to the point when asked: "Don't you remember you said or did such & such?", I did not remember it.  There was a time I'd say - Oh, yeah! I remember.  But it came to: 'Oh my god, I don't even remember that".  I was in fear of losing my mind - I thought I was getting Alzeimers or some other incapacitating mental dementia.   Now?  My mental acuity has returned.  I can complete work tasks and do it with excitement! I enjoy my work! I don't dread somebody seeing through the fog of my mind wanderings to the idiot behind the cloud.  I can pursue my dreams and live life and act out my favorite personally created motto: "Pursue Happiness Aggressively" !

*Fatigue gripped me like a lion with its prey.  It was a struggle to make it through the day once I got past my morning rush.  When I arrived home I preferred to go to bed or lie on the couch and sleep to eating a meal.  Taking a trip was only half-way enjoyable because I was so physically and mentally tired that even the most beautiful terrain, most exciting event was mediocre in its affect on me.  I wanted desperately to enjoy it all - I just couldn' t - and I just didn't care because I didn't have the strength to care.  I was getting my affairs in order for the day I felt I would just fade away because that's what I felt like was happening.  

The doctors always said the same thing.  Took tests, blood tests, urine tests, tests for MS - always-  "Everything's normal".  All tests within normal ranges.  There's nothing wrong.  But hey! Take this depo-lupron for your fibroids with this mental breakdown side effect and then lets pull out your uterus! I said no to the body part pulling and no the second time around to the mental breakdown.  I tried to heal myself, reading various holistic, natural type or homeopathic literature and books.  I knew I needed nutrition, I knew I needed supplements, I knew the earth provided something non-intrusive that could help my body heal itself but I didn't have the knowledge on how to combine, what would affect me in the correct way, what is good for ME??  So I bought a myriad of herbals and supplements for my symptoms to no avail.

I was discussing health matters with a co-worker one day and he told me his family was on the Blood Type Diet, they were all "O's" and his wife, in particular was very adamant about feeding the family blood type correct food.  Her health had improved tremendously and she was at her high school weight after taking on the lifestyle of blood type eating. Now I'd seen those little cards in the health food stores about blood type diets.  I checked it out - read it over.  CHICKEN? I have to give up CHICKEN?  What a crock - who ever made this up has bats in the belfry!  Everybody knows chicken is good for you! That's what the TV, radio and magazines have told me for years!  And grandma made the BEST chicken dumpling soup - so...what's up with that?   Upon his prompting and encouraged by my co-worker's testimony I bought the book.  The rest is history, as they say.  

My 30 year old daughter says she should be living my life and I should be living hers because I am so active, ALWAYS out, travelling, performing in a rock band that travels around the north coast - and to Europe next month! Taking vocal lessons, writing my music, going to rehearsals, going to the gym, going to social gatherings all the time...and finding time to create my own recipes and nurture myself...and trying to bring my family into the fold .  

And it's because of you, Dr. D.  I'm alive and living this life.  Because of you and your never-ending work that I keep learning and evolving.  It keeps getting better and I've a feeling that the best is, always, yet to come.  I haven't even mastered SWAMI yet! And I hear THAT keeps evolving - I love growing.

Thank you - so much, for not listening to your father on his concerned advisc for you to go into another field of medicine.  People think I'm crazy sometimes, too.  But if this is what crazy feels like - I'll be a loon till the day it truly is my time to pass on. For now, I've got too much life to live - and I'm going to live it!  Thanks to you.    

May you and the Mrs. continue to grow and be blessed beyond measure.

Hey, I just have to tell you I LOVE my SWAMI (Genotype) diet!!! I feel great on it. It's been close to a year now gradually moving myself over to Genotype-friendly foods and avoiding more and more of the not-good-for-me foods. I'm not religious about the diet, but I'm about 90% on the friendlies I can feel the d...ifference when I eat things that aren't good for me, and I feel powerful and energized when I eat foods that are good for me. So, thank you so much! As a body of work, your diet and philosophy has been the best I've seen. For those people considering taking the plunge - DO IT! It costs you next to nothing, and if you're skeptical, just have your blood tested before and after. Your body doesn't lie.

I have not reached my goals as of yet but my chiro practitioner complemented me a while back and said I looked great and more alive and happy. Dont remember if I mentioned that on here already. Today, I am grinning from ear to ear. Two young men kept whistling at me. That has not happened in many many years. Thanks Dr D.

I've lost 6 pounds in less than two weeks by eliminating the diary and wheat. I can't believe that all of my life I've been dieting wrong! thanks Dr. D'Adamo for educating me on how to eat for my blood type.


Quoted Text
I find it very interesting that as an "A" I am not allowed to have tomatoes. I cut out the tomatoes and my insomnia is like non-existent....Not only that...I am not even craving them the way I thought I would. I still have some issues about what's allowed and what's not...but overall, I am really starting to feel bette...r. Everyday is a lesson. But for me the most important part is not stressing when I slip up. Cause the "A" naturally have higher cortisol levels....who needs that. I'm loving this diet and loving following it with my friend. We are having a great time texting each other back and forth asking if this, that, and the other thing is allowed...


Quoted Text
I think this book is right on target. It makes so much sense. After implementing the theories 2 years ago, I've never felt better. Of course there is the occasional slip- up, but overall I feel amazing!

A year and a half ago I was totally broke after a business failure. I was miserable had major problems with wife and life was a total disgrace. One day I received an email from an Internet friend he opened my eyes and introduced me this program. What an incredible 18 months its been. etrzwxzk

Dr. D.  You continue to inspire me with your wit, gentle attitude and exuberant spirit.  I will be looking forward "what's next" that you will be sharing with the world.


Knowledge is power.  SWAMI gives you the diet that will unlock the key to better health, and it's all based on your unique individuality.

Lola thanks for keeping this up..  

Desiree your story is mine in many ways.. thanks for sharing it, I just sent it to a friend who will not be convinced. Thanks for sharing..  


Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

Another Dr. D success story: For the first time since 2004, I had to undergo a round of antibiotic treatment. I carefully followed my Warrior Receptor SWAMI plan, took 2 Polyflora As twice a day, doubled up on daily yogurt, and had no problems whatsoever with the antibiotic. I finished it last Tuesday and no problems at all. Go Dr. D!

Dear Dr D'Adamo

I have been following your Eat Right for your Type and I must say that I am amazed at how great this has worked for me!
I have been treating myself in Singapore for Rheumatoid Arthritis and the doctor am treating with actually suggested that I take a full blood test and I was given a list of food and drinks that I cannot take but did not much notice of it, but when I got your book and applied it, I was so amazed.  Why did I not find you 20 years ago? Am now 49, but after just 2 months, I cannot describe how good I feel.!
I have since been trying to advocate this in my small country Seychelles Islands in the Indian Ocean. Currently, I have to rely on someone going to Singapore to buy the books and products for me, which interestingly am just giving away to other people because I care for their well being and health.  This is also creating quite a wave amongst the population.

I wanted to thank you so much for your ingenious research of the blood type diets! I've been on the blood type B diet for two months now and it is fantastic!!!  I've lost 13 pounds and have more energy now than I've had in the past 10 years. Also many of my ailments have quickly disappeared including colitis, PMS cramps, joint pain, lower back pain, weak badder issues, mid-afternoon fatigue, mood swings, achy feet, heartburn, water retention, and mild rosacia.  And I thought all these problems were do to age!!!!  Wow!!  I feel great!  Thank you so much - and the doctor I had seen for colitis wanted to put me on medication for the rest of my life.  I'm so glad I declined and pursued an alternative diet.

Dear Dr Peter J. D’Adamo MD


Subject:   Your Books “Eat Right 4 Your Type”
                                      “Live Right 4 Your Type”


In August 2004 I was diagnosed with incurable cancer.  I was told that I had three months to live and that I should go home and tidy up my affairs.  The Oncologist said that if I decided on their recommendations to take chemotherapy my life could be extended by up to six months.

After a lot of research done by my daughters and my investigations after reading your books “Eat Right 4 Your Type” and “Live Right 4 Your Type” was that if you have cancer or any other degenerative disease you have a lot more options and choices than drugs, chemotherapy, radiation or surgery.

Next birthday I will be 80 years of age and I am happy to say that today I am a lot fitter and in better condition and feel younger than I did fifteen years ago.
Lucky some say, I call it blessed.


With your help and approval I would like to use some of your articles that inspired me and to be able to promote your books to help others like you helped me.  As reading your books has in no small way played a very important part to my survival and good health and for that I thank you.

I hope you are keeping well and look forward to your reply at your earliest convenience.

Very best regards

Yours sincerely


Frank

I just received this message a couple of days ago from a blood type A who has been following her program for 3 weeks:

Quoted Text
"Ok, I am simply astounded by this nutritional plan. As I close out week 3 these are the marvels I've discovered now:

1. I don't have to use nasal spray at night for nasal congestion-WOW- I have used nasal spray nightly for at least 20 years. Hmmm, was it simply a dairy reaction all along?

2. I have not had a migraine in the last 3 weeks--and we had the lowest barometric pressure reading in history this past Tuesday. The change in barometric pressure was always a big migraine association for me. Could my migraines have been triggered by food instead? I'm inclined to believe so!

3. Our weather has been damp and switched from hot to cold which would normally trigger a flare of my fibro/arthritis. I have not had a neoprene sleeve on nor have I taken an Aleve!! Would my diet create such positive influence this quickly?

4. I sat with a basket of chocolate in front of me the 2 days of conference and wasn't tempted to eat it. (and didn't)

5. I managed to mostly eat right even while I was away I say mostly because I ate dinner Sunday night at the Cheesecake Factory and my chicken and pasta had a white sauce which I'm sure consisted of dairy (I ate as little as I could of it) I was not grievous of saying no to their cheesecake, which is to die for by the way. Previously i would seriously grieve if I felt denied my sugar!!!

Am I perfect at this yet? Nope, but I have the desire to continue and that says a lot!! I have eliminated all the avoids and a vast majority of the rarely..... I try to watch to be sure that I consume at least 1 super beneficial and 2 beneficials w/ my meals and snacks.

I am quite happy. "



Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are.
Let me not pass you by in quest
of some rare and perfect tomorrow.

Just want to thank you. After reading your book Eat Right 4 Your Type over 13 years ago I have been a vegetarian ever since. I have always felt great, had energy and gained 80 pounds during each pregnancy and went straight back to a size 6 within 4 months after delivery and everyone asks "What do you DO?" and as always... I refer them to your books. My son has never been below 98% on the percentile charts...and yes he is a 100% vegetarian on YOUR diet.
I honestly got up to 205 lbs with each baby on a vegetarian diet and 4 months later I lost all the weight without any intensive working out, etc. I just stuck to my diet according to ER4YT, I recommend this book to everyone. It was a life changing book, my two children are also vegetarians. I cook meat for my husband who is a type O but I have left all animal protein as of 13 years ago, it really wasn't hard after I saw and felt the results. Thank you~

Here is my Thank You...

After about two months on BTD, I feel so much better than I did before, especially since discovering my secretor status.  My weight loss is almost incidental (although I did and do need to shed some pounds) to the feeling of well being I have when I eat compliantly.  I don't feel as foggy headed and absentminded.  I don't have headaches and acid indigestion every single day like I used to, and I rarely have sinus/allergy symptoms anymore.  I was beginning to have pretty bad inflammatory pain in my right hand in particular (I'm right handed), but achy joints in general, and that has mostly all gone away now, too.  My skin is less dry, too.  As I keep reading and re-reading passages from LRFYT and the GT book and others that I borrow from my library, I am amazed and truly filled with wonder at how our bodies live and thrive (or don't), particularly how our patterns are set while we're still in the womb.  Little by little the *hows* of BTD are starting to sink in, but even if I didn't understand and just did what I was told, I would still feel the benefits of following these recommendations.  One thing I fear is becoming decrepit and infirm and afflicted with dementia in old age.  I'd rather die before having to live my life out like that.  Hopefully with BTD and eventually SWAMI I will not have to live the 2nd half of my life in that kind of state.  So I thank you, Dr. D., for a pretty good shot at a healthy future, and for the wellbeing I now feel.

I'm losing weight, and today I found out that my triglyceride level dropped from 149 to 117.  HDL---from 31 to 39. And all other lab numbers were great! Thank you Dr. D!  I suffer from Lupus, but no longer have to take anti-inflammatory drugs. I already have some heart and lung damage, but this is much easier to cope with since starting the BT diet. Much thanks again!!!

Recently I had my bladder removed due to cancer. I had intestinal absorption problems after the surgery, and became dehydrated. As I listened to what was wrong (really nothing) I remembered your book Eat Right for your Type.  I came back home from the hospital and put myself on a meat diet with no bread (I don't do wheat anyway) assuming I would absorb meat best.  Obviously, I am a type O.

I got home from the hospital still with major absorption problems on Tuesday and this morning (Sunday) I am having normal bowels the first time in over a month. If nothing else this certainly testifies to the truth of your book.  I try to follow fairly closely, but fail some, but this has been a true life savior for me and I just wanted to thank you.

For me, there is a lot of sense in the blood type work/writing of Dr. D.  I am an AB, and had intuitively been eating mostly along the BTD lines, but am doing better refining this by the book.  The suggestions for lifestyle and stress issues are very helpful.  I understand myself and family members much better (I am surrounded by type As)and am able to help them a bit with their health, food choices, etc.  Thank you for all the super information.  If I could be of any help to you, by virtue of being a somewhat "rare" bloodtype, I'd be more than happy to do so.
Sincerely,
L

I'm 40, O- and have been suffering with seasonal allergies since I was a teen. I have tried every medicine on the planet, herbal remedies, neti pot, etc. with no relief. Since I started eating right for my type 5 weeks ago, it's amazing how much better I feel! The only time I experience allergy symptoms is when I ch...eat, which is rare. This lifestyle change is amazing and I wish I had known about it years ago.

‎" I started this dietary change a little over 2 years ago. I was 25 pounds over weight and gaining. I was bloated had stomach pain irritable bowel, thyroid prob's, generally miserable, moody and had lost my zest I guess. Exercise wasn't working either. I read the book and it made sense to me. The first week i lost 10 lbs. Today I'm 25 lbs., lighter and have been told I look much much younger than I actually am.I contribute all this to my adherence to the BLOOD TYPE DIET and my will to be healthier by making better food choices. I have NEVER felt better I share with anyone who will listen!'

Thought I should report on my progress since starting the Digestive Pack, Probiotics and now ProBERRY 3! The bottoms of my cycle are now a day or two max of discomfort instead of severely ill and a trip to the ER (for dehydration after several days of fluid loss) and horrible pains in my stomach and intestines is now moderate to mild. The Intrinsa helps the most but the combined effects of all the above is very noticeable and now I have added the ProBERRY 3 to the mix and would like to save enough for some Deflect next thinking that perhaps lectins in chicken and other "avoids" could be exactly what damages the mucos lining protecting my stomach. So the short chain fatty acids and whatnot are doing their job protecting me from high acid days. In-all a drastic improvement for the better already after only three weeks and after years of suffering! Thanks Dr D'Adamo for the fine herbal blends and advise mentioning specifics pertinent to my unbalanced (B+) condition.

I would like to complement you on your oustanding work. EAT RIGHT FOR YOUR OWN TYPE. THE INDIVIDULALIZED DIET. I always thought it was strange with four types of blood the diet would be the same for everyone. I am an healthy 69 year old, size 4 and keeping the doctors away. My husband and I follow that diet.

My blood type is B-Positive.

Thanks for a very informative book.It has changed my total outlook to health issues.I am 45 years old and I stopped training consistently in 1998.However after reading your book I started training and eating right for my blood type in June this year.My weight has dropped from 106 to 94 Kilograms and I am excited with my newfound energy which has worked wonders in improving my spiritual,physical and emotional life.

Dear Dr. D'Adamo,
I hope I am at the right place to leave you some feedback.
I am AB positive and have been fighting with my weight since I was 10 years old and have tried EVERY diet on record from weight watchers diet to the cabbage soup diet. My mum had a cancer scare with the appearance of some pre-cancer cells a few years ago and after treatment a doctor pointed her in the direction of the blood group diet. She was very religios about this diet she had been advised of. She had 3 pictures of her blood taken over the period of the first year on the diet. The first picture showed up a lot of white blotches and as the year got on she had another taken showing significant improvement. This leads me onto say the final picture taken showed no remnants of the previous white blotches. Consequently she felt better, had more energy and lost weight as well as worried less about the return of these cancer cells knowing she was doing something to "help the cause". Even though I knew about this a while ago I doubted the weight loss being due to the diet and also reading up negative comments on line didnt help with disbelievers making the diet seem very hit or miss. However, it wasnt until recently I found myself really depressed in which my job suffered and my relationship with my partner and parents also suffered. I had a rock bottom low self esteem, I was feeling tired and stressed constantly as well as feeling fat and lothargic. At 65 kilos I started yor diet...
I am now 53 kilos, I feel great and I cannot thank the blood group diet enough. I have loads of energy, I dont think I can remember how to get stressed anymore, I wake up feeling great every morning and feel so much happier and confident in myself.
I have ordered every book you have released relating to my group and consequently have had friends and colleagues asking what revolutionary diet I had found (other than lipo) so I have spread the word and have been introducing this diet to everyone I know even hadvising those not in my blood group. I have told people to find out their types and order their own copies of your book as they wont look back.
I am so grateful someone like you has put in the time and effort to really research what I consider to be the best "diet" in the world only its not a diet in which you need to starve to lose weight but just eat "correctly" its truly amazing. I have made this a complete lifestyle change and I dont feel like Im on a diet. I have been doing this diet for nearly 4 months and havent looked back. I have lost 12 kilos and can provide photos of this.
From the bottom of my heart I thank you so much for the books and guidance you have put onto the market I have never been happier. The money spent on your books is the best money Ive ever spent.
Kindest Regards

Thank heaps DR. D!  I was 85 kilos(5 ft 5), unhealthy with very little energy back in 2002!  The blood type diet reversed that and I felt a million times better!  When I discovered the genotype diet it was amazing- I used the diet to win 2 national bodybuilding titles(classic mens), 2 years running(2008-09) weighing 63-65kg kilos ripped!  I just got swami for xmas and I have already made strength gains!  Your diet and lifestyle advice has been life changing-much respect!!

''Last year I was diagnosed with hemochromatosis, a genetic disorder that my body adsorbs too much iron (ferritin). I had to go and get weekly blood draws to reduce the amount of iron from my system. I was told I would have to do this for the rest of my life, until I came across a book ...called Eat For Your Type. I am A+ blood type and followed the A blood type diet. My iron levels actually normalized from this diet and it has been a year since my last blood draw. My hematologist cannot understand how I am keeping my iron levels down with out blood draws and is skeptical that a diet can control this. I just keep telling him you are what you eat! I think any one who shoots this diet down should try it before they have an opinion. It is also saving me big bucks because I have a very high deductible health insurance plan.''

I was diagnosed with severe Rheumatoid Arthritis. My numbers eventually went off the chart (^600). I read online about the possible connection with food alergies. About the same time I learned of your studies and bought your book. That was on March 08, 2008. Since the day I became a vegan I have never had another flare up. In fact my doctor recently told me it seems to be in remission!

I am simply writing to thank you for your research and your time spent putting it into words. It makes perfect sense to me. It is my Bible.

Hello,
I found the principles of the blood type diet really fascinating and have tried the diet on and off since March 2010. It is hard; but when I stick to it I realize that my digestion is perfect, I sleep better and feel more energized. I am Type O by the way.

I think Dr. D'Adamo is doing breakthroughs in the health field and allowing so many people to lead healthy, nutritional lives ... even if sometimes is hard to stick to the diet

I can not imagine how bad my health would be as I have diabetesll and would have no way of doing what is good for me.. I would have not only no good clue on what to eat but even more important what I would be advised to eat would make me worse and ill on a daily basis,, the importance of having BTD as my guide for many years already is enormous..

Thanks DrD.. JB.


Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

Thank you so very, very much for your book, your research and giving your life over to save so many others by sharing this profound information.  I am a 45 year old African American female.
I have found found not only your information to be accurate but very helpful. I haven't felt well off and on over the last few years and did not know why. I'd eat certain things I love like hot wings (chicken) with blue cheese or peanut butter out of the jar or with apples and have eaten popcorn like crazy since I was a kid and later I feel horrible, tired, drained, etc.  I never ever connected the not so good feeling later with the food. I thought it may be something else, like the water, Laugh Out Loud.  Now that I am educated about my blood type I can take the necessary steps to set my body in balance.  Thanks so much again for all the work you do and have done.  You are a blessing to many and I pray as many people you have blessed, that you and your family, company and staff will be blessed that much more and 100 times over all the days of your life.

Sincerely,

Hear hear!
And note: My brother's surgery is what led him to beg me for health/diet advice. I prescribed Dr. D'Adamo's cardiovascular program, and he recovered from that surgery (in his case also double coronary bypass) phenomenally. (His mother-in-law commented to me, "He looks as good as he did when he was dating my daughter!" --- 3 months post-surgery). His cardiologist was very impressed, too.
3 cheers for Dr. D!
Also: The cardiovascular book is a treasure-trove of information about the different routes to cardiovascular disease for each of the 4 blood types... I strongly recommend it.

I have read EAT RIGHT FOR YOUR TYPE which has helped a lot, because I have a syndrome, whose some of the symptoms preclude a lot of the BENEFICIAL foods. I can't help smiling when I read about Type Bs (BRH ) getting (mysterious) neurological illnesses. That's me! I keep the book by the cooker. Apart from the specific eating advice, it is fascinating to learn about how types came about - I have done more reading from the references.

Bless you for the work you and your father have done. I have no doubt that if I hadn't found your book, I would have remained an invalid, wheel-chair bound, with no hope of a life away from the four walls. And I'm only 63. I found your books four years ago.

Long may you live and carry on.

I am an O  non- secretor Hunter and have been following your diet on and off for three years.  I had horrifically painful and debilitating hives for two years coupled with excruciatingly painful acid reflux.  Everyday for Two years!!!!  I saw seven doctors and spent nearly $11,000 out of my own pocket and no one could help me!  I finally went to see a gastro- enterologist who did a colonoscopy and an endoscopy which found H.pylori in my stomach and Candida albicans in my esophagus.  He attributed this to STRESS!  I had an antibiotic reaction thirty years ago and had a terrible thrush of yeast im my mouth and throat which I now realize never fully went away!  I told him I had read your book but he dismissed it as "nonsense"!  I decided to try your diet. All my symptoms disappeared within one month!  I just could not believe it!!!  But after two years of good health, I soon returned to my old ways and sure enough the hives and Gerd returned.  And so once again I went back on the BTD and sure enough, I was once again healed.  Needless to say, I am now one of your strongest supporters and talk to anyone and everyone who will hear me!  I have about six family members on the diet and still have so many left to help.  I have been wanting to write you this testimony for years now and tonight I finally made the time!  Thank you thank you thank you from the bottom of my heart for writing your books!  You have saved me from a long and miserable existence and I am forever in your debt!    Thank you.  Sincerely,

Dear Dr.D'Adamo,

For years I have read your books and have tried to the best of my ability to stay on the Type A diet you prescribe. I also work at geting my Type O husband to eat his blood type foods.

Thank you so much for the books you've written and all that I have learned from you over the years. The foods you recommend for my blood type have been one of the main things that have kept me healthy and active, now at the age of 70. I also rebound regularly, do Do-In body work on myself and meditate daily. These four things are cornerstones in my "house of health."

Sending you loads of Gratitude for all the work you've done,

Dear Dr. D'Adamo:

I am a sociology Ph.D. student with a B.S. in biology and medical sociology.
I am currently a graduate student at the University of Notre Dame (Notre Dame, Indiana).

Not only have I seen the results of your amazing research, I would like to help others around me reap the benefits.

I have seen my lifelong allergies disappear and my overall health is improving. I had been so sick I was having trouble with daily activities, including school. Now, I am happy to report that I do not have any of these problems. I am a living testament to your research and the benefits.
Thank you,

Hi there. My name is Lori and I just wanted to thank Dr. D'Adamo for his amazing brilliance. I have been overweight most of my life and exactly one year ago I picked up his book and haven't looked back. I have currently lost 100 lbs and have probably 30 or 40 to go. It was an easy journey.....Thank you so much. I promote this book any chance I get and I will always be a walking advertisement for this amazing diet. Take care.

Dear Dr. D'Adamo,

I could just kiss your whole face off!!  I started your diet around four months ago out of pure desperation.  I have Ehlers-Danlos and a Chiari malformation which both limit my activity greatly.  Prior to diagnosis, my doctors did many painful and experimental treatments to address my symptoms (joint and back pain, and heart being the worst of the long grocery list of symptoms).  I was given a steroidal spinal injection over 3 years ago, to which I had a horrific allergic reaction.  In addition to the allergy, it caused me severe and rapid weight gain.  I haven't been able to lose a single ounce since that wretched thing... even after six months of 500 calories a day!  I went from a size 6 to a size 14, to give you some reference.  I was wearing size 36 waist jeans when I started your diet... not comfortably, at that... probably should have been in a 37-38.  I just tried on my old 32's and they fit!!!!  It had been so long since I'd seen myself in anything form fitting, I'd forgotten what I looked like.  Not too shabby, if I do say so myself.   THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!  You have no idea how happy you've made me!

There's a special place in heaven for people like you!

P.S.  My mom started the diet the same day and has stuck to it with me.  She has gone from a size 20 pants, down to a 14, and is still dropping, as am I!

I work at a ladies fitness facility as a weight management consultant & find that this amazing diet helps everyone who tries it! Not just to lose weight, but to become healthy! I was able to STOP my daily asthma puffers, salbutamol & cortico-steroids, after daily use for 35 yrs. JUST by eliminating wheat & dairy from ...my existing vegetarian + fish diet! It was THAT EASY!

Dear Dr. D'Adamo, I was just turned onto your site by a coincidence of a meeting with a person.  I must say, when I read you Blood Type A I was astonished. I eat organic and am a vegetarian, meditator, like spiritual, calm relaxing music, prefer a quiet life style, prefer light exercise. Years ago a chiropracter told me to turn vegetarian, because of my blood type. Now I finally learned all the details why. That was over 44 years ago.  Your chart describes me perfectly. I was shocked.

I started the BTD on January 11th, 2011 after my first visit to a natropath. I had some health issues, well lots of health issues that were taking its toll on my body. I decided to open Pandora's Box and jump in with both feet a...nd go see the Natropath (I was a virgin with the natropath)

See handed me the BTD book ( I had the same one in my closet) and said "this is where we will start.) I came home and the next day, my life changed!

I am being treated for Leaky Gut Syndrome and I also have an AI disease called Lichen Sclerosis. This was the catalyst for getting in better health, plus the constant digestive issues.

I got the results of my GI2 test today, the stool samples show 2 types of Strep (Alpha Hemolytic and Gamma Hemolytic), I also have moderate levels of E.coli. Plus my Chymotryspin is low (marker for enzyme for pancreatic exocrine output).

She has stepped it up a notch on the healing for Leaky Gut. I need to research Dr D's site for a good digestive enzyme for Type A. It appears that gelatin capsules are not working for me, they are an AVOID.

I am feeling so much better, the redness on my nose and cheeks has diminished at least 80%, I have LOST 18 POUNDS! I FEEL AWESOME!

It took a couple of weeks to give up the pepper and other seasonings, and recently I have reduced the poultry consumption to maybe 3 times a week. I can see the meat going out the window or into the mouth of my O+ hubby!

Thanks for everyone's support!

I wish to thank you for the two books I´ve read: Eat right for your type and Live right 4 you type witch both have opened my eyes about eating. I´m 40 years old female from Helsinki Finland and O rh- type. Right after I left weath, potatoes and corn out of my diet I´ve felt much better. My stomach is flat after day at work (it used to be like balloon!) and I don´t suffer from constant heartburn as I drink only one cup of coffee in the morning with rye bread and not in the evening anymore, instead green tea. I eat more meat and fish and so is my family: husband and two sons. Husband and our oldest son are type A and yougest type O. My husband used to be very tired but now that he eats more rye bread and not so much wheat and he is not so tired and grumpy anymore. My yougest son was even more grumpier and mean and eating right food has changed his behavior and mine too. I used to be hot-headed but now I´m more calm. I love sports: bodypump is my favourite: ) I "pump iron" three times a week and swim once. After bodypump I´m not so hungry and I feel energetic for couple of days. But after swiming: hungry and hungry for carbohydrates!
I keep various vegetables at home and eat them after swiming. And yes, I´ve always been overweight. I´ve lost weight two times 10-15kg and got it back of course as I didn`t leave wheat out of my diet. I was  always hungry and tired. Now I´ve lost 2 kg just eating right food and I´m not suffering from hunger and I enjoy what I eat!!!

Thank You!

I have lost over 25 pounds of body fat, following my type O. I also have more energy, no longer have stomach problems due to eating the wrong foods and I never feel hungry. This is a very simple plan to follow along with a good exercise program you will turn your body into a fat burning machine.
Thank you Dr. Peter D'Adamo.

You've said this so eloquently. Thank you Peter for your books. A daughter of a friend gave it to her dad and he then gave it to me & in over 10+ years that I'll paid attention to the blood type guidelines ...(it is really NOT a diet), I've had great health improvements. Thanks so much for your books. I've given at least 4 away as gifts, gave my kids each a small one that was about their own blood type, and heard one book was then given to the girls mother and then the mother's neighbor. You speak truth.

I just wanted to say how much I like Genoma Cardia. D’r D’Adamo put me on Genoma Cardia not to long ago and the results are amazing. I have been taking Genoma Cardia along with the Fish Oil Formula for a couple of months now and I feel much better with a lot more energy and strength than I did before. For a while I was attributing my anxiety to lack of physical ability and this supplement has increased my strength and endurance greatly. I now enjoy a new level of energy and with it confidence in my health and physical abilities. Of the many supplements I have tried from Dr. D’Adamo’s line of supplements I would have to say that Genoma Cardia has been the most beneficial and I look forward to taking it for years to come.

Thank you,

My Testimony with Lichen Sclerosis
Dr D'Adamo...I have been following the BTD since Jan 11, 2011. My naturopath recommended this diet. I had never been to a ND, wishing now I had done this earlier in my life.  My MD wanted to remove my gallbladder to fix my digestive issues.   One of my ND's instructors in school worked with you on research. I just wanted to say how great I feel, I have lost 20 lbs now. 90% of my digestion issues are gone. I am healing my leaky gut issues. I also have Lichen Sclerosis, this was the catalyst to improving my health.

My LS is so much better on the BTD, i am hoping to be in complete remission once my leaky gut is cleared up. BTW, I am A-, still waiting to submit my secretor test.
There are thousands of women, men and  young girls who develop LS.  It seems that since my dx last August that hundreds of women in their 20s & 30s are now being diagnosed.

Thanks so much for your research, this has been the best thing I could do for myself.  And quite easy too.  The majority of my Avoids are foods that always bothered my digestion or I never cared for the taste.  Interestingly, my daughter is A+ and I could never get her to eat beef as a child, she will eat chicken or turkey.

Enjoy your day

Keep in mind- you change as well as save lives! If not for your site rightforyourtype.com along with your amazing books, I would have died in a wheelchair. However, I walk around like nothing ever happened, people can barely tell....After ...a bad car accident my O blood attacked, but didn't know what to attack. A year later I had excruciating pain & problems with all of my major organs slowly shutting down, as well as serious issues with my blood sugar, thyroids, I was always lethargic, @ 29 I was put on BP meds ( within a month of my "diet" change I no longer needed them). I even started struggling deeply w/ things like concentration, understanding & focus - etc. etc...the list goes on for days! I went to 80 doctors in 100 days who were all baffled. I found your site, changed my eating habits, along with chiropractor, medical massage & PT 3x a week, I am now 80% better & on my way to being an even better me! No problems with my digestion, thyroids, blood sugar, BP, understanding & focus, my energy is normal-again the list goes on & on. I also changed my children's "diet" and they have had SUCH GREAT responses! They will never have to go through what my mother, gma, sister, aunts and I have had to deal with, never knowing it was an easy fix! I never knew about antigens, food intolerance's or what in the world it meant to be an O Hunter-you made this all extremely accessible, and simple to understand! I thank you everyday in my head for your work & passion! Sorry for such a long comment but I feel compelled to share a bit of my story & to thank you all the time, this time I went for it Thank you for dedicating your life to such a marvelous mission!!!! Thank you! Yes, yes it is- I can't say enough about the "diet" ( I prefer life style) or Dr. D!!! With only weeks to live, I never quit & found such an easy "answer" to all of my "problems"-too cool!

I would never have made it through my 30s.  Blood Type was instrumental in getting me out of a very destructive cycle that actually began in the 80s.  I was a vegan in 90s & also ate very little meat during the 80s & 90s.  When I  picked up ER4YT in 1999  I knew there was something to it.  I was 29 & not well in any sense of the word.  The book didn't mention thus truth yet I knew it was the answer.  I've sworn by it ever since to whoever would listen & credit D'Adamo with getting me out of veganism & macrobiotics.

i just wanted to say that this book has changed my life. i have been trying to figure out why i was getting sick from food i was eating for almost three years.  doctors were of little help and my nutritionist was helping where he could, but once i made the few small changes to my diet that the book recommended (i'm type a and had already figured out slowly about 90% of what the book said i shouldn't eat) i had my first day of no stomach pain for the first time in years!! it's truly amazing! i have been doing it for three weeks now and still am so excited to feel normal again. i am so thankful for dr d'adamo and think he is a genius. i thank god for him!

I've known about Blood type diet since the first book was published and went along with the Type A recommendations sporadically. Then, this Spring I had pneumonia, took antibiotics, and had an allergic reaction to the amoxicillin. Itched like fire; got prednisone and it cleared up before I finished the protocol(I usually finish it all, but I was already clearing up and haven't broken out since(two and a half weeks ago.) Anyway, I now have stomach problems I suspect caused by candida(killing off all the bacterial indiscriminately). Am following Genotype Teacher and the indigestion is easing off. Last night, my hubby and I ate with friends and she served beef, potatoes, white flour rolls, peas, and coleslaw. I suffered this morning with an acid stomach and am determined to stick with the protocol. I think he is a genius, too; someday the rest of the medical community will as well.

You are such an amazing doctor, Dr. D'Adamo.  I easily would have ruined my own life if it wasn't for your books.  I was a vegan in my 20s, just barely got well in my 30s.  Now having learned that I am a Hunter the jig is up.  I should have read Genotype right away and didn't-- wasn't eating enough red meat, just couldn't pull it together.  It is now clear to me that I would have continued to undereat and lose muscle mass if I hadn't been prompted to check in.  Also, I let myself have pizza one day at work 3 years ago and that was it... a habit was born.  Not just the vanity aspect, the mood swings and irritation with just one serving a week were off the chart-- I was driving myself crazy!  I've barely worked since my relapse and was called anorexic at work last year, really hurt my feelings along with all the ageism stuff.  Your book explains it, thank you.

no cravings. My Naturapath recommended the diet for my type. Its been a blessing, lost 36 lbs., lots of lymph fluid, lowered BP, less tummy troubles, and no cravings. How much better can it get.

Thank you for this site and for this wonderful eating plan!  While following your plan I have discovered at the ripe old age of 52 that I am gluten / wheat intolerant.  My whole life I had "digestive" issues and always said I had a sensitive stomach and never knew what set me off!  I carried pepto bismol tablets with me always and scoped out the bathrooms everywhere I went just in case!  As a type O my plan states that I should avoid wheat so I did and switched to rye.  After about a week my family decided to have pizza, yay, pizza!  I had two pieces and a bread stick and started feeling sick just after I finished and was sick all night long.  The culprit.  The crust and the bread!  I am happy to say when I avoid wheat that I feel so much better!  My energy is up and I have lost about 15 pounds to date.  Thank you, Dr. D'Adamo, you have made my life so much better!

I am still amazed that eating differently can make such a big difference in a persons life. It has improved my life in so many ways, but today I wanted to highlight one specific area, namely my menstrual period.

Pre GTD: in bed for two days not being able to move from pain. Taking 8 ibuprofen 400mg in 4 hours time did nothing for me, no relief whatsoever. At a certain point I just didn't even take them anymore. Did not feel like stuffing my body with chemicals that made no difference.

Now: some slight discomfort but nothing so bad that I 1. can't handle it, and 2 would stay home because of it. And if it gets a bit too much, I just take one ibuprofen and it gets me through the day. Most of the times I just need 1 at the beginning.

Pre GTD: I used to bleed so bad for four days that I felt I had to have some extra blood. It was horrible, I'll spare everyone the details, just take it from me, together with the excrutiating pain it's a miracle I didn't kill anyone and gotten away with an insanity defence.

Now: less then two day, I think about 36 hours I have a heavier flow. But nothing so bad I need to refresh every hour (as I did pre GTD). I think it's normal now.

I just find it amazing and I am so happy I changed from BTD to GTD. It's much better for me and I can feel my body healing on a much deeper level then with BTD.

So Dr. D, you have another very satisfied customer here.

Thank you, Dr. D'Adamo.

When I was 14, in the middle of a pasta dinner, I put my fork down and with tears in my eyes told my family, "I feel sick every time I eat."  At 16, I was fairly overweight. While watching a family video of my brother and myself cliff jumping at Lake Mojave, someone asked which person I was on the screen. My dad replied, "Cant you tell? He's the one with the big belly."  This moved me to start the Aktins Diet, with which I lost 20 lbs and felt like Superman, eating mostly steak, chicken, eggs, broccoli and zucchini (go figure, I'm type O).
At 18, my sister gave me your book, Eat Right 4 Your Type. It took almost 3 years to implement completely.  I no longer felt sick when I ate. The foods that I knew I could not even smell were listed as avoids (canteloupe, eggplant, wheat, dairy, strawberries, cashews).
Then in August of 2010 after being on the Blood type diet for about 3 years, I decided to try to slowly reintroduce wheat into my diet.  The week long stomach pain was gone, but the hair falling out, weight gain, ingrown hairs, acne and depression came back. In December of last year (2010) I found your Genotype Diet book.  As of January, I have been on that diet 100%, lost the 16 lbs regained from reintroducing wheat into my diet in 6 weeks, and have NO physical problems at all.
This diet has moved me to try new things which have become my favorite foods, like buckwheat hot cereal, Taro, and duck. Just because I do not eat the five non-meat/sugar staples (wheat, corn, dairy, potato, soy) of the Standard American Diet which is abbreviated SAD for good reason, does not mean that I am limited. I have a world of new things to find and try that otherwise I probably would never have heard of, or would have been afraid to try in case they made me sick.  In short, I cannot thank you, your father, or your team enough for helping me make myself well after over 20 years of physical and emotional pain because of my health.

"Thank You, Dr. D'Adamo".

I started with the Blood Type Diet in 1996. Had mixed results simply because I did not know I was a non secretor and kept trying the diet as is.
I was in such bad shape even good quality supplements were too much for me - my body was in rejection mode.
Finally got on line and found a legitimately educated Naturopath. One of two in this state at that time and she was close by. Her diagnosis was food allergies and we started treatments. My life changed! I could now eat and was getting the benefit of the foods I was eating!
The next few years were spent improving my body's acceptance of quality food then we hit a wall where I was not improving as expected. (During these years, without support for it, I had left the diet.) One day, out of the blue, Doc. casually mentioned Dr D'Adamo's diet and wondered if it would help. That was all the encouragement I needed!
I went right back to it and then found the Genotype Diet had come out. The BTD had expanded, I had to do the secretor test! I was a Nonnie! Now everything began to make sense.
The Non Secretor Diet helped but I still had problems! The Genotype Diet labled me a Gatherer - So, guess what, this diet works, I started losing weight. But I didn't need to lose weight. I tried to get help, everyone said to eat more. I tried to eat as well as I could.
When the Swami Express came available. I was among the first. What a Godsend! It took all of my idiosyncrises into consideration and I became an Explorer. Books are limited to their content. An online program can take in so much more information before it makes it's diagnosis. Swami Express is the best, Dr. D'Adamo, thank you so much

Lola, I too, tried to go back to wheat. About a week after I had truly eliminated wheat from my diet I thought maybe I would just finish up those wheat crackers I used to love for a bedtime snack. I did, and within a half hour I was climbing the walls! Had no idea that wheat had been bothering my nervous system so much. Never again! Swami Express took every bit of wheat off my diet. I never could eat much of them but I did like buckwheat pancakes. Oh Well, other than the weight problem, I am feeling good. And that is important!

Always check ingredients. I was looking for a vitamin C powder & had to email the co. to ask the source. All they listed was ascorbic acid. Corn based. I am a B type, so, I won't be ordering that. I was not even aware of vitamin C being made from corn. I have found that if I cheat & eat chicken or corn that my blood pressure & blood sugar raises within 45 minutes. I have quit being nice & eating foods just because they are being served. I am nice to myself now! I love Dr D'Adamo's lists of herbs, oils, & etc. Really helpful.

Dr. D'Adamo, I just want to thank you so very much for all your work and your books. When I first heard about the idea of eating based on blood type I thought that it was a crazy idea. Many years later experiencing some health problems I went to see a doctor who had me buy ERYT. After reading the chapter about Type O, me being O+, I really made sense. I have been using this info for the past 3 years now and I'm feeling young again. I tell people this is the first book they should read if they want to experience better health. Thanks again.

Bless you ! Not only have you vastly improved my immune system and some health problems, but also completely changed the lives of several other people that I know. One a type A who did not realize that milk was the source of her terrible IBS and arthritis, and her husband, type O, who cured himself of snoring and breathing problems to the great benefit of their marriage ! I will keep on recommending friends and family to read your books and I think that this science is the way forward for the future of the human race. It has even helped me to understand my husband better (he is type O), as I am a B and I know at last why we have different likes and needs and I vary our meals accordingly to suit our different types.

The blood type diet saved my life and I feel better than ever, I lost 80 lbs and my recovery ability is amazing. I had shoulder surgery to repair a torn labrum and bicep tendon and both the surgeon and physical therapist said they have never seen such a fast recovery.

Amazing things happen with this way of eating... Dr. D'Adamo is my hero! " I've lost over 200 pounds combined when I lost the weight twice from your book Eat right 4 your type. You have really inspired me. Especially since I've had Multiple Sclerosis for 12 years. I've found my CURE by following your diet for type A."

It never ceases to amaze me how many medical / health professionals (or the general public) don't seem to make the connection with diet and the fact that we are unique. This immediately suggests to me that either the person doesn't have that much of an interest in food (that is beyond their own satisfaction of eating), and / or, hasn't made a connection that food is medicine.

I'm type B and have been following the BTD for 13+ years now -- I even wrote an article about it for Newsmax after I had a fascinating experience enjoy!

I absolutely love the Bloodtype eating plan. It has worked out well for my family of Type O's though giving up wheat, corn and milk was an intitial challenge for sure. My daughter has struggled the most with her allergies and weight. Wouldn't you know that she is the only Non-Secretor in the bunch? And my sister, who always ate differently than us (she is a Vegan) turned out to be a Blood Type A. The Eat Right 4 Your Type "app" is great for shopping and restaurants!

When I first started eating steaks, I bought a grain fed cow, which I later found out that it was a dairy, grass fed cow. They are the worst type of meat to eat. I later found an other farmer... and tried the meat before I purchased it and it was completely different. I was a 33 yr vegetarian who was directed by my Naturopath to eat meat every morning for breakfast, which changed my life. I know that if I don't eat my read meat now, I get depressed since my body needs the B12 from it. My blood cells were literally dying before I started eating the red meat and only after one month they were healthy and back to normal and thriving. I had to choke down the red meat and tried everything to make t taste good. and I am glad I did. I still have days where I don't like to eat it but then it depends on where I am getting it. Good luck and don't give up. Try to marinade it before cooking which can give it some awesome flavoring as well. Or if you can, eat jerky. I have a processor who makes the jerky without the vinegar and corn alternatives and is wonderful to eat.

I have just finished reading up on my blood type and found your information spot on. Being a Clinical Hypnotherapist I have been doing some research and your site came into this.

Thank you for such an interesting look on how our blood is another source of why we are the way we are.

Keep up the amazing findings!

I worried and stressed over it too! I measured and re-measured, then had my husband measure ! But once you get the information down, Swami creates a plan that is just for you, taking in all of your information. It is fascinating. On...ce you have the program you can go back in to it, update as you get more information, or print recipes etc. It is really very special. One more thing, a few years back, I had my DNA tested, just was curious about some things and thought "why not?" So I ordered the test, did the swabbing of the inside of my cheek and returned it Fed Ex to the DNA Lab which was out east. When I got the results back they were almost identical to what Dr. D'Adamo had written in his books about B- non-secretor, Gatherer types! The DNA testing lab had nothing to do with Dr. D'Adamo yet their conclusions were amazingly similar. That made me a believer. My own physician scoffs at the blood type way of doing things, but I honestly believer the Dr. D is just way ahead of the pack. What he is doing and has done, is much further advanced than the typical old family physician, they will catch up with Dr. D's research one day, but as for now, we are the lucky ones!

I am now writing a book as a cancer survivor.  It is an all inclusive book which covers my background, medical reports, details of my diet and supplements used and the authors’ books which contributed so much to my survival and good health today.

I would like to offer you two pages in my book for you to promote your books.  This is my way of saying “thank you” for the information and advice your books and products provided, which helped me save my life.

Hopefully more readers will benefit from the collective knowledge we provide to get their lives back on track.  Cancer is a disease which effects the person’s mind and body.  I believe my book will inspire the readers to buy your books or products and hopefully join hands with other cancer patients to encourage each other to fight for their survival.  
To Your Good Health

Warmest regards

My sister introduced this diet to me several months ago (April 2011) and so far I have lost 22 pounds, feel energic and more alive than I have in several years. With the Blood Type Diet I also maintain a strict portion control system. I have purchased all the books associated with this Diet and have found each to be very informative for all my nutritional needs. By using the instructions, menus, and information from Dr. D'Adamo and maintaining this weight loss that was so very hard to achieve previously, I have been able to introduce others to the Blood Type Diet and they have been successful as well. I also subscribe to dr. D'Adamo's online newsletter, which directed me to this website.

Swami took me from a size um. 8 maybe six in some makers sizes to a size 4 quickly, six weeks maybe. AND that was after doing the blood type diet for a while. I started teaching the diet, which really made me start doing what I was teach...ing , so really the first part is the diet... Then following it... Then the genotype, then all I really, and truly did was... Add cilantro to my salads, carrot juice when I ate cod. And it's august .. Still a size 4 petite! Just do. It!!!

I started back on my SWAMI on July 11, so I've been back on 100% compliance for a little over 4 weeks.  My weight has gone down from 255 to 240, my appetite is very much under control, my complexion is vastly improved, and more.  I feel very well at the moment, and wish to keep this going until I reach 185.  I am 6'2" and have always read this is my ideal weight.  I appreciate all you do for us, Dr. D.  And, very much looking forward to SWAMIv2.

When I saw the avoid list, I was giddy that I didn't "have" to eat avocados and cabbage and almost everything on the list. I lost eight pounds of water instantly, no more stomach pain or bloating or gas. My skin cleared up. 'Twas amazing. When I stray, I pay!!

I too have a lot to lose, but as stated in the book this diet is for optimal performance, weight loss is just a side effect. I can say in the first 2 weeks I dropped 10 lbs. also the pain in my knees is gone and I am able to go back to exercising……So I do believe this new eating lifestyle is going to be the key for weight loss. Good luck on your journey!

I'm writing in to tell my story.  I was diagnosed with high blood pressure at age 33, i was going through a stressful time in life so didn't think much of it. I was on and off medication for a few years then after having my son at 35 the doctors wouldn't let me leave the hospital without getting and staying on something.  I turned 40 this year and my goal was to get fit!  I was never overweight but I just wanted to try to get of the meds.  I went to my health food store and overheard a lady talking about this blood type diet.  It made sense to me!  I bought one of your books (I'm type O) and gave myself 2 weeks!  With in 2 weeks my hands (I've always had itchy hands)were cleared up!  My husband was blown away!  He said he's never seen my hands cleared up. Being the hunter in the family he was okay with this "diet" because we could still eat meat.  My whole family is type O which makes things a little easier!  We've all become used to it!  My son(5) has been taken off of wheat and he can breath again!  He was always stuffed up!  My daughter(11) is way beyond her years in how healthy she eats now!  She went to a friends house for a sleep over and came home the next day feeling yucky.  She said "Mom, I need to start bringing my own food to my friends houses."  She reconizes how she feels now.  So does my husband, he told me when he's around his friends he's like "you shouldn't eat that!"  Our mind set now is we eat to fuel our bodies!  Anyway, I've been working with my doctor and an N.D. and we've gradually taken me off the medication!  I'm so happy and I credit alot of it to this diet!  Which I believe is not a "diet" but just a healthy way of eating!  Thank you so much!  I have alot healthier AND happier family!

I just want to say that I am your classic A  blood type and all my favorite foods give me horrible heartburn and now I know why!  Your site is the very best on the whole internet!  I have to get used to eating differently but in just 2 short weeks I have lost 7 lbs.!  Hopefully I will lose my bulging belly (5'4" and only 140 lbs. with a big belly and skinny everywhere else)

I just wanted to say THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for this site and for it being free!  I've learned so much... GOD BLESS YOU!

A big thankyou to Dr. D. I've kept off the 23 lb. originally lost, I FEEL WONDERFUL, I have lots of energy, and not a day goes by that I don't think to myself how grateful I am for this wonderful way of living..For some of us, the improvements are supposedly minor, but who says dry skin, nasal congestion, weight gain, depression, abdominal cramping and gas, headaches and brain fog are "just part of aging?" I have none of these now!

I bow down to you Dr. D, your dedication is appreciated by so many of us!


I love dogs and turtles, bird watching, canoeing, cooking for friends and family, knitting, reading, and DR. D's diets!

I am still in the middle of the coconut oil cleanse to get rid of the candida. I know that it would not have worked so well if I did not follow the GTD. I also know that the Deflect helped to peel back some layers in my gut by scrubbing the lectins. I am still healing and making progress but without the GTD, I would not be healing, period! The GTD caused me to examine how I want to live my life and the foods I want to eat. I have become more organic (in terms of food choices and self-care products), sustainable (it just makes more sense), and cook everything from scratch, including breads. My newfound hobby in cooking and being sustainable was because of the GTD and every step is thoroughly enjoyable. Thanks, Dr. D!!!


Simplifying my life. Only the best for my body, mind, and soul!

Thank you for the books you have written. I am a Canadien, female, 29 years old  with an O positive blood type. I remain active as a tree planter and with lots of biking in the off-season. I suffered from pain in my upper abdomen for years as I eat a vegan diet. I noticed a great improvement in my health when I started with the recommended diet from the book, "Eat Right For Your Type". With your most recent book on the market I have noticed that some changes have been made. Sincerely,

As a vegan, when I was much younger, I exercised like a fiend every day and that was the only way I didn't have to fight my weight. After seven babies, I discovered btd and the weight issues are not issues anymore and I don't exercise like that. Avoiding the avoids were the ticket to my weight issues! It's amazing.

"Thank you, thank you, thank you for bringing the Blood Type and Geno Type diets to light! I've been reading your ER4YT and LR4YT books for years, and just recently read Change Your Genetic Destiny. This book has helped me tremendously!

I'm an AB+ who suffers from gluten intolerance, and has had parasite infections in the past, but now knowing that I'm a Nomad, I've incorporated the Nomad diet into my life and it's amazing how great I feel in just a few days. Western medicine did little to help me when I was at my worst, and all I can say is thank goodness for a very special homeopathic doctor who was instrumental in my healing. I will never, ever be without your book. "

May not be much help b/c I'm a B. Saw a 90 yr old @ a Snr Center who looked like Jaime Lee Curtiss. She told me "ER4BT". Dabbled on-line and lost 15 in 6 mos and never missed a bite or broke a sweat. Finally bought the book. Wrote in the margins, took to grocery story and live by it w/ my 'A' husband. It goes everywhere with me. Read the book again and again particularly testimonials and find new info every time. You can do it! Mom's Dr's and Pharmisists ask me, "would you give me the title again/". I prefer Dr. D'Adamo's and his father's work to others. xoxoxo Hope a Happy O steps-up! Cannot find this book in used book stores, folk don't part with them.

Great Type B testimonial: "Thank you!

I am seven weeks into eating for type B and I barely recognize myself. Every part of my being has improved, including things that I thought could never change. After playing sports every season as a kid, suddenly I couldn't run for more than 30 seconds. That has all changed and I have more energy than ever. I'm sending the link to this home page to a friend of mine who is battling various illnesses and I hope it works as well for her as it has for me. I am certain that I can't go back to pizza and pasta. You couldn't pay me a million dollars to leave my B diet. Thank you for helping so many people. I for one, feel that I have averted certain death.
xoxo"

Our journey: I found Dr. D'Adamo's books by accident about 5 months ago by doing a google search about blood type compatibility for giving/receiving blood. The search engine said something about a blood type diet, which I had never heard about. I bought and read the 3 Blood Type Diet books and the Genotype Diet book.

I'm a B+, who thought I was a Nomad, following the Advanced calculator in the GTD book for about the last 4 months. Last month I took the secretor test (I'm a non-secretor) and purchased the SWAMIxpress software and it told me that I am actually a Gatherer and blended the ER4YT diet for B's with the Gatherer GTD lists. I am having much better results. At first I just cut way back on my wheat, corn, chicken and tomato intake and that made my stomach feel better than it has in a decade, but I wasn't losing weight yet. I regularly (6 times a week) walk on hilly terrain with my dog for 30 minutes each morning, but never lost that much weight and had a hard time toning my middle section. (I'm 31, 5'4" and about 140 lbs. I have a good amount of muscle, just a chronically "pudgy" middle.) I was also developing aching knees that made it painful to use stairs. About a month ago, I cut my dairy intake to follow the SWAMI lists. This last week, I cut my intake of processed sugars and tried eating just one serving of beneficial raw whole fruit and 1 oz. of dark chocolate daily to help cut cravings. I've lost almost 5 lbs. (now 135lbs.!!!) and I'm feeling myself slimming where I usually don't...right around the middle, and my knees feel much better!!!!

My husband is an O-, he took the secretor test and is a non-secretor, also. SWAMIxpress told him that he was a Hunter. (He is 37, 5'10' and about 172lbs.) He lost almost 7lbs. (now about 165lbs.), and the "spare bike tire" around his waist, almost immediately without even exercising much, but starting to follow his SWAMI diet lists. He would "burn out" from the stress at his job very easily, had a hard time sleeping and had chronic migraine headaches and body aches. His chronic migraine headaches and body aches have all but disappeared, he's sleeping better, and he's got enough energy to start exercising again. He used to eat yogurt every morning with bran, just to try to become regular, but it always made him feel worse. Took away the gluten and dairy (including the yogurt and bran) from his diet and his gut is definitely getting better.

We've started moving our 11-year-old son's diet to the GTD Explorer profile since he's a B-and the GTD book said he was an Explorer whether he's a secretor or not. Big difference for him as well! I VERY HIGHLY recommend the GTD book and SWAMIxpress!!! It has greatly helped us all in our own individual ways!!! Thanks so much Dr. D'Adamo, and keep up the good work!!!

Eat Right for your Type gave me immediate results with acid reflux and allergies. I no longer am taking prescriptions drugs for my symptoms. Since O blood type people have an enormous amount of stomach acid, DGL & bladderwrack are great supplements for preventing heartburn, indigestion, acid reflux, H-pylori, and promoting weight loss (bladderwrack). As long as I eat the beneficial & neutral foods I'm fine.

Proof Blood type diet works.Sinus problems all my life,surgeries & antibiotics. 1998 ENT surgeon suggested allergies. Yeast and mold. Breadaholic & ate moldy food . Got allergist's diet. Friend said that is Type A diet, too. It was. Also eliminated gastric upsets! No sinus problems except seasonal. Dr James Braly says thousands lost weight eliminating delayed onset food allergies. ENT office confirmed! Type O cannot eat corn or gluten, daily fruits & vegs. Ancestry counts

Hi, I'm a 50 year young female who's fairly active, stresses on the little things but has a passion for life.  (I care too much) I've had long history of stomach disorders ranging from Gastritis, Gastro paresis, Hiatal hernia, Esophagitis and Iritable bowel syndrome.  I've had a cholecystectomy, hysterectomy, apendectomy,bleeding disorders, Low levels of B12, tonsillectomy and bilateral hernia repair only to find the pain that I've experienced was still present post the numerous surgeries.  After the experience of poking,prodding and dozens of tests, I've opted out of 99.9% of prescribed medications.  Recently I went to a Dr. in Cool California for a recommendation. The Dr. at the Cool medical clinic looked at my records and instantly said "You're blood type is O correct"?  I confirmed her observation and was surprised that she would know my blood type without knowing anything about me.  She recommended your book to me and suggested I start eating for my blood type.  After seeing her I went to my Gastroenterologist who is now ordering a small bowel Xray this week.  In the meantime I've bought your book and started eating for meals for Type O blood.  In one week I've slept without taking Tums that live on my night stand, I don't have the bloating and pain that was having in my bowels with the exception of the Esophagitis which I think needs to heal.My attitude has changed, my energy level is where it should be and I have you to thank!


Sincerely

I started the BTD for health reasons..but started getting on the scale and was amazed. I have been on BTD for atleast 8 years and have lost 150lbs. What I found was it was a steady loss. It took me 2 years and in that time because I was losing at at a steady rate, I had MUCH less skin. not even enough for surgery. I could have ofcourse for my stomach due to C-sections before the weightloss, but BTD has a wonderful way taking care of that. Remember truly BTD is about health, the rest will take care of itself.

It's really clear to me the longer I'm involved with this and since getting my genotype that Dr. D'Adamo is The One.  There really isn't anyone else in the health/science world who is able to explain what to eat and why.  It's kind of amazing really.

The best comment that I have received lately came from a medical doctor who looked at my chart & told me that I "forgot" to list the meds that I was taking.  When I told her that I was not taking any, she was amazed saying that most of her patients who are my age (72) already have a list of perscription meds that they are taking.  She asked me how I stay so healthy, I told her about you, Dr. D,  & she said that she was going to definitely look you up on the web.  I was in for a bladder infection that I was able to completely clear up by myself at home over the holiday weekend by drinking plenty of water & drinking unsweetened cranberry juice.  I just wanted the M.D. to confirm that I had cleared up the infection & she did just that...I'm totally free of any infection.  Dr. D, I thank you everyday for the great health that I am experiencing...Thanks from the bottom of my heart.

dear dr. D'Adamo,

I was given a food table by my GP (a list of foods to eat depending on blood type) and found the foods that i ate for my type, worked wonders and now i feel like a different person.

I love the concept and seems to have worked very well for me.
Thank You

Dear Dr. D'Adamo

Thank you very much for making this website. I am a mother of three children, and I have been suffering with stomach problems for over five years. In over the past five years Ive had multiple surgeries to help with my stomach problems that I feel now may have not been necessary. After reading this information I feel hopeful that maybe with a change of diet and exercise it can be better for me. I am AB positive. After reading this it described almost everything I have dealt with. Once again thank you very much.

I'm very late to the meeting, but better late than never. My apologies.

Dr. D'Adamo:

'One measures a circle beginning anywhere' . . .

Thank you, thank you, thank you for everything you've given me.

At the top of the list is a longer life. I'm healthier, happier, and in better shape now at 52 than I was at the age of 20.

Because of your hard work and devotion to finding the truth ('But Truth is that besides which there is nothing: nothing to modify it, nothing to question it, nothing to form an exception: the all-inclusive, the complete — By Truth, I mean the Universal'), I love what I eat, and what I eat is delicious, nourishing, nutritious, and life-affirming. Instead of living to eat, I eat to live, and give thanks for every mouthful. My fare is very simple but I eat better than the wealthiest gourmand, because everything I eat helps make me whole and healthy. That is due directly to your wisdom, and I thank you.

Through the lessons I've learned by living this way for years, I've come to see that dis-ease and healing crises are gifts in insight and wisdom ('The fate of all explanation is to close one door only to have another fly wide open'). That's a powerful gift you've given me, and I thank you with all my heart.

Thank you for your willingness to explore your own conclusions and update your data as you continue your work. Your models are not static but living and evolving as new information comes in. ('I conceive of nothing, in religion, science, or philosophy, that is more than the proper thing to wear, for a while.')

I could go on for pages, but those are the highlights. You've given me a new life, and it's a better one than I could ever have imagined.

Thank you, Dr. D. You're one in a million, and I'm blessed to have your profound influence in my life.

'Everywhere is the tabooed, or the disregarded. The monks of science dwell in smuggeries that are walled away from event-jungles. Or some of them do. Nowadays a good many of them are going native.'  

(All quotes by Charles Fort--that damned data! )  


Everyone is entitled to his or her informed opinion. --H. Ellison

Hi, I live in India,I've been on BTD since almost 5yrs. Personally, this has worked wonderfully for me. I'm highly thankful to Dr.D'Adamo for his novice research that has helped millions. God bless him.

Good Morning, I have blood type O. I have noticed that chicory is a super beneficial veggie. I was wondering about chicory used as a coffee substitute?

Also, my husband last year was having blood sugar issues. His A1C was 13.2. We found out about your program and started using it. His A1C a year later is now 5.5. Thank you for your time and research and may God richly bless your practice,

Hello,
I must say that the first time I read the book, I thought, gee, it actually makes sense. But, how can it? So, nothing changed. The past few years the IBS symptoms have gotten unbearable. So, I said, this is it, I have to do something. My GYN doc said cut out gluten, I started following your book. First day, I lost 5 pounds of water-my legs were not swollen at the end of the day. How is that? 40 years of swelling, gone! In one day. I have not taken Imodium-I had been routinely using 3 in the AM, 3 in the PM-in a week-How is that possible! I will NEVER go back to the cramping, gas and pain of my previous life. Thanks for your time and breakthrough!

Am I the only person that it makes me cry always reading these testimonials??

It seems like so many people suffering-healthwise because there is so much ignorance and wrong information. There are so many people that are trying to do the right thing for their health, but don't have the knowledge that will help them. Thank goodness for Dr D and his findings about blood type and diet. I really hope his work will get more and more known, so more people can be helped.

yes, we all love this thread, dedicated to Dr D and all the worldwide thankyous directed to him, thus the title.....if we all were to comment on every one of the posts, the purpose of the thread would get lost, so we keep it free of comments.

I can not thank you enough for providing the blood type diet...I have been following it for just under a week and I feel fantastic. For months, I had been feeling a great amount of fatigue, especially in the afternoon. Now, I have energy and feel much lighter...my body is happy!! I feel as though I got my life back, which is invaluable...thank you, thank you, thank you!

Dear Peter,

I want to thank you with all my heart for the amazing health improvement to my body during the past 4 years. The blood group diet was a starting point of improved bowel functions and blood circulation. However, my following of the swami diet since June has been so wonderful in all aspects of my digestive system that I feel like a new person.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

Regards,

I'm about to have a much happier 41st birthday than 40th.  Thanks Dr. D!  You rock!  A year ago I was drinking a lot, laying around, and generally feeling sorry for myself.  Even though I "know better" I started to get away from the btd because I just felt it was "too hard".  But I'm back and have accepted the truth, which is that the hard way is better and healthier too.  Who knows I'll probably live to be over 100 like my dad's mom.

First I want thank Dr. D'Adamo for the research and knowledge he shares with us...I have all the books and love reading them.. I started this new way of eating to my blood type and feel wonderful... My blood pressure went down and I lost weight within the first four weeks... I didn't start the diet for weight loss. I started it because it made sense of how we should be eating... The first two days I was less bloated... I feel a unique satisfaction as I enjoy this new eating journey... For 30 years I read health books in regards to cooking and health benefits... When I got married I changed my eating habits to my husbands liking.. Well I gained weight, blood pressure went up , blood sugar went up... I was in a pet store and mentioned that eating with my husband has changed my health and I had to go back to eating healthier. An employee mentioned the book by Dr. D'Adamo.. I went to Borders book store and read alittle and knew right away this is what I wanted in my life.. The knowledge from these books is priceless. So now I continue to base my love of food on eating right for my blood type A.. Thank you

"Ill" for the first time since I came to your office two years ago. Extenuating circumstances and I understand the probable cause/effect. Your work has totally changed my life. I'm bouncing back quicker than I ever have from this type of thing-- and I most likely succumbed to it because of physically stirring up old stuff that I'm finally going to clear for good. It's amazing to me that a few times after getting clean on SWAMI, I could actually "hear" the effects of my food choices (low level ringing in my ears for years).

I've been doing more than ever since coming back from the miserable mess I now realize I was when I first met you. I can be a bit of a "workaholic" when I have the energy and I have been "dragging my body" forward the past few months and just need to balance my self expression with some self care. Thank you for not just being a wonderful doctor, but a wonderful teacher (the true meaning of the word). Truly blessed to have connected with you and those whose lives you have touched.

p.s. My phase angle is going up- a most welcome change in direction. Upping my compliance, so hopeful that it's upward and onward.

It is a good thing I live in the south and not up north around Dr. D!!!! I would be arrested for trying to give that man a hug & a kiss every morning. It is so wonderful that when my feet hit the floor first thing in the morning they no longer hurt. I haven’t had joint pain in 2 months….Dr. D’ you rock sir!

I have been on the"Eat Right 4 Your Type" plan for over 20 years. I live and breath it and share with people who have used it with wonderful results. I was in a serious accident July 2007, In and out of hospital about 3 years. Head injury etc. The food they forcd me to eat caused adverse reactions, as you can imagine, and I know slowed down my healing process. This last year I am back on the plan and healing rapidly. Thank You for that.

First time, I've heard of Dr. D'Adamo diet approach last year in Europe, and was given his book.  I am happy to report that while making some dietary changes he recommends for my blood type, I've seen huge improvement in my health.  I used to get nose bleeds daily, and since I started using vitamins and supplements recommended for my blood type, this condition has completely disappeared, as well as my allergies are reduced by about 90%.  So, if you have any health concerns, it is worth trying it

Getting my genotype this year was instrumental to me getting back on the diet and back in to serious exercise after a 3 year relapse.  I had the beginnings of some auto immune M.S. type symptoms which I am glad to be rid of.  I also feel I understand myself better and thus have more of a lifetime commitment to wellness whereas before it was a year to year struggle.

"Not a day goes by that I don't thank my lucky stars that I discovered the BTD.

I've lost track now but I think I started around 8 years ago. I work in an office of around 400 people with all the sickness that implies. And I just float through it like a free agent, rarely succumbing to a bug, and if I do, knowing that my immune system has the goods to fight off anything.

The only thing I miss is the great leaps in health you get when you first start on the diet. Now I seem to have reached a plateau of good health that is the new normal.

But who's complaining"

I started the BTD June of 2005 and have been pretty faithful in eating mostly beneficial�s and neutrals. I have indulged in avoids when feeling sorry for myself and each time I do I pay for it. I'm sure now that summer is coming I will indulge in some Rita's gelati's but will restrain myself for as long as possible. I'm no saint but let me tell you...I firmly believe that the BTD is my life-long way of living and I'm so grateful for Dr. D and all you folks on this forum and for my friend Deb who owns the HFS here in Easton, Pa.

I survived flu season without a shot, picked up a small something that subsided in 2 days, which use to take months to go away. I can now use public facilities without wondering what disease I will go home with (to know me is to know I caught everything in sight and out of sight).

I would like to give a special thanks to Lola and Don. Many have been very helpful over these months but you both have extended yourselves with lots of care and understanding and never any sarcasm during times of concerns, too many questions and dumb questions. Oh yeah, questions that were already asked and answered.Again, thank you all!

For those just beginning, hang in there! This too can work for you.

Following the blood type diet has led me to a destination I was not certain I would ever reach.  It has been 14 months since I was honorably discharged from the Marine Corps.  The day I stepped foot back home a new battle slowly began to crumble my life beneath my feet. Mentally and physically my service was building up an unstoppable downward spiral resulting in only one option looking more clear as each day passed.

The research that has been completed for the Blood Type Diet so far has equipped me with a new set of tools to help me repair every aspect of my life I cherish now more then ever.  I seek to become involved with this research to contribute all that I am able.

Hello and Thank you, Dr. D'Adamo!  I have been eating right for my blood type (A) for about 6 years now!  It was a yoga teacher who first turned me on to Live Right for Your Blood Type.
I am healthier and happier than I have ever been and I KNOW it is because of the foods that compose my body.  I have been a certified yoga instructor for a little over a year and anytime a student wants to talk about nutrition, eating right for their blood type is one of my first suggestions.  I was excited when I came upon your website this afternoon and wanted to take the opportunity express my deepest gratitude for your dedication, hard work, and love.
You and your guinea pig family are forever in my heart,

I have stated the eat right change of lifestyle a couple of years back.  I claim to be a 75% due to liking many of the things a type A should not eat, but i don't want to eliminate them 100% from my life...and even doing that much i have never felt so alive and awake for years!  I am a healthy woman who has taken care of myself, but as i aged i was becoming lethargic and got hospitalized due to chest pains..so i searched you out and starting eliminating items from my diet, which I thought were healthy for me and ate more of what you said was healthy for me, and i feel young again!  and people tell me all the time i look 45, and I'm 56!  my skin beautiful!  so thank you!

I kept sinus infections so bad that the infection moved into my jaw bone. I went through three different antibiotic treatments and none of them worked. Once I started the ER4YT diet my chronic infections left and the bone infection cleared up. Now when I have dairy or wheat I have serious reactions to them.

My husband is type O. He urgently needed to lose 25 Kg. as the weight started to affect his health some years ago. He followed Dr. D'Adamo's diet for blood group O religiously for a few months. In particular, during the first time he only ate foods from the Highly Beneficial lists, not even paying too much attention to the amount as he ate those foods till he did not feel hungry. We found that choosing foods only from the Highly Beneficial lists makes your metabolism faster. Do not forget, though, that type O needs a high expenditure exercise pretty often e.g. running as it makes a big difference. During the first two months under the new regimen it was difficult to recognize him: he had lost a lot of weight, had a nice skin, felt a lot of energy back and those health problems that he was starting to suffer from are only a memory...It might be a bit difficult to get used to it at the beginning but after you will see the results you will not want to go back to your old food habits. GOOD LUCK!

For everyone beginning this diet-all I can say is do you best. All you can do is all you can do and it is enough. The first 12 months, I focused on subtracting avoids as well as adding beneficial foods. All my health problems went away and about 20 lbs. The second 12 months because my physical condition was better, working out, sleeping schedule became consistent, compliance higher, and I lost another 40 lbs. I was elated with my first year's results and each year got better!

Just a note to tell you what a change your book has brought to our lives!  We changed our diet June 1st of 2011.
I have spent most of my adult life trying to lose unwanted pounds and have tried every diet that came along from Weight-Watchers, Adkins, South Beach, high protien, low protien and more and nothing seemed to work.
When I read your book, everything made sense!
I'm blood type A and I realized nearly all the things I was eating was wrong for me!
I have also been trying to recover strength and health after an extensive bout with Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever which nearly killed me and had left me with extreme fatigue and frequent relapses.

The first 2 weeks was pretty rough and I realize now that it was probably de-toxing from a lifetime of improper eating.
At 1 month on the new eating plan, I realized I feel GREAT!  So far I have lost 30 pounds without being "food-obscessed" which is mandatory with ALL other diets and weight loss programs.

I feel better than I have in 15 years!  My husband is also following his food plan and has lost most of the extra weight he carries around his chest and belly.....and he has energy again.  ALSO NO MIGRAINES since starting the new food plan!

So far I have given away 10 of your books and just purchased two more and the Cancer book on Ebay.

We both sing the praises of your food plan and want to thank you for having the courage to go against the flow and publish the truth about foods!

I hadn't realized how much of the American diet is CORN or corn based until after reading the book!  It's no wonder that the average American is 30 pounds overweight and dealing with all kinds of health issues!

Thank you thank you thank you!
Your book has changed my life for the better!
No ammount of praise is enough compared to giving me my health back!

Kindest regards,

'I started the BTD for health reasons..but started getting on the scale and was amazed. I have been on BTD for at least 8 years and have lost 150lbs. What I found was it was a steady loss. It took me 2 years and in that time because I was losing at at a steady rate, I had MUCH less skin. not even enough for surgery. I could have of course for my stomach due to C-sections before the weight loss, but BTD has a wonderful way taking care of that. Remember truly BTD is about health, the rest will take care of itself.'

I changed my life by eating right for my type. No more meds, no more depression, just good feelings and love of life. If we could get people to follow we would only need emergency medicine not treating man made diseases. I really believe this to be true. Pass it on.

I feel my best when I ERFYT. I had some healthy issues last year. I had abdominal pain. I had so many test done. No one could figure out what was wrong. A friend suggested that I purchase your book. I did after three month the pain disappeared. I have better digestion and lost 8 pounds without trying. I strayed every now and again. But 98% of the time this Type A+ ERFYT. Thank you and God Bless. When i count my blessings I count you twice.

Hello,

I want to thank you for the work you have done.  Eating right for my blood type has been the best change I have ever made to my diet.
Thanks again for the work you do!

I finally gave up black tea and sauces that have wheat in them. I've been hyper-vigilant and have been feeling great!! It was the tea, stevia (which is sadly an avoid for me), dates (which I had no idea were avoids for me till I learned I'm a nonnie), and incidental wheat that I was unaware of that contributed to my feeling blah so often. I bought some Yerba Mate tea at the suggestion of some other Os here and now I really like it. Green tea is growing on me if I squeeze some lemon juice into it. I'm even using agave and it's not messing with my blood sugar AND I am not bloating from it like I thought I would. I always bloat when I have honey or other sugar but the agave is totally fine. Dr. D is a genius. I am sleeping through the night, very deeply, too. I love this way of life. It's great!!

I read the "Eat Right" book in January, 2011 during a time that I was not feeling well physically.  I was dealing with more health issues and was extremely overweight.  I made the decision to try this eating plan for one month beginning February 1st.  I had tried everything else.  If it didn't work after one month, my plan was to go back to my old eating habits.  At the end of January, I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes.  I discussed this eating with my physician and its suitability for my new diabetes diagnosis.  He did not have any concerns and gave me the o.k. to proceed as I was planning along with his prescriptions for diabetic medications.  At this point, I have lost between 70 and 80 pounds and have been able, with the direction of my physician, to stop all of my diabetic medication.  I continue to monitor my blood sugar levels daily and am very pleased with my continued success in managing my diabetes with my new and improved eating plan.  People see the changes in me physically because of my obvious wet loss and increased energy levels.  I have told many people about the "Eat Right" book.  I know of a couple of people who are following the plan today. The book I used is in our local library.  I refer individuals to the library to check it out for themselves.  I just wanted to share my story with you.  I am not at my goal weight but I am very excited about the progress I am making with my health.  By the way, I do not call this a diet.  I think of diets as something short-term.  I call this my new eating plan and new way of life because it is a change of lifestyle for me.  Please express my appreciation to Dr. D'Adamo for sharing his knowledge with all of us who are benefiting from his research.

I just find it absolutely amazing and miraculous how many people Dr. D's work is healing.  I have written of my gratitude before so I'm just saying - I'm about 7 years into this (having graduated to the ultimate SWAMI!) and after trying everything under the sun, even holistically, this is the ONLY diet that I will follow for the rest of my life.  When I fall off the wagon I know how to get back on.  When I'm not feeling right I know why.  I can more easily and readily find answers to my health questions than I ever could before...This is an ever learning and growing process ~ I haven't even pinched a small portion of his in depth research and the other information there is on his site.  I don't have time! At 50 years old I'm more active and busy than I've ever been - because of this way of eating and living. His work has altered the medical "industry" in ways the world does not even, yet, realize - I think they're just starting to catch on.  Anyhow - I'm grateful today - and always will be as I'm reading about others who have found new life through Dr. D's tireless work.  He and his family and staff deserve every blessing they receive for what they have done and continue to do for humanity.

I have to thank you for giving me my life back...or I should say my marriage.

I have seminal allergy to my husband and have had problems since the birth of my second and final child.  We didn't know what the rash etc was, so the OB/GYN would just tell me to douche after each sexual encounter, produced massive hives, rash, breathing problems (I thought it was asthma related to climate and treated it with inhaler/antihistamines).  At the hospital ER they said I was allergic to Kleenex (hello?).  Problems continued to get worse until I was not able to sleep at night due to my "asthma" and had to sit up till several tablets of antihistamines could fix my symptoms. I was bone tired and sooo ill.  I looked up "allergic to husband" and found my life on the internet.  I had it confirmed at the hospital 'severely allergic to my husband', found me in the ER with anaphylactic shock! Epi pens became my bedside companion.Condoms were out as well - I have a latex allergy.

So my marriage was reduced to a gamble with my life every time we had sex.Condoms were out as well - I have a latex allergy.

So my marriage was reduced to a gamble with my life every time we had sex.That's went I went to the mat and looked for anything in your book that could help me.  I had been a fan of your book for years, but now I was on a mission!!!

Nothing in the regular O diet book helped me, but when I looked at a tiny O diet book I found my first clue.  In this tiny book you said to use Thyme or Fenugreek for sinus problem...  Let’s see, sinus problems are allergy related...my health problem is allergy related...what if I dose myself with Fenugreek (Arabs use it a lot)?  I started making a tea out of the ground Helba (Arabic) and noticed my reaction to the condoms wasn't as bad as it used to be.  Little by little I built up the Helba in my system until I did my own allergy test (with epi pen at the ready).It has been 12 months symptom-free and a happy marriage!

Of course, you know I got stupid...I didn't take the Helba one night and it wasn't a real problem, slight rash, but nothing major, so I wanted to see how far I could go without Helba.  After all, maybe I was cured?  Yeah, I was STUPID - had to use the Epi pen the third night!  Won’t be that dumb again!

Thank you for my life and marriage.  You’re the best and may God give you what is best for you and keep what isn't far from you.

Thank you very much!

P.S. We are a family of four "o's" one "B" and an "A" What a chore to cook! But I am so trying because I think this is the best way to choose what foods to serve every family member. Thank you and your Dad so much for bringing this out for all of us.

This is just a note to say I HAVE FINALLY discovered for sure what my Genotype is and I feel wonderful. I have been working off of the O pos Nonnie Hunter diet and it is without a doubt me to a tee! Thank you thank you thank you Dr D'Adamo!!! You have changed my life! This diet (lifestyle) took me a while to tweak out and research but it was all worth it in the end! I am healthier and more confident. Also with the Genotype I was able to add a few foods back into my diet and that has been wonderful! So all n all I am very very pleased with my over all well being!

After months of struggling with acne and breakouts after going off the pill (just felt crappy while on it) and not to mention WITHIN MONTHS off my wedding, I finally went to visit a Naturopath after trying every imaginable remedy myself to get rid of the breakouts (which I NEVER had while on the pill). Naturopath told me about the blood type diet and I immediately started a food journal and was very strict about following the type A foods. My acne stopped within DAYS! I was so thrilled! The other benefits were just awesome, too. I dropped about 20 lbs (I didn't need to lose any weight, but it was a nice plus) and I had to get my wedding dress taken in! I wasn't sleeping through the night, but now I sleep awesome and have LOADS of energy throughout the day! I tell everyone I know about this diet

"Hi I want to thank Dr. Adamo for giving me my life back.
I have had psoriasis for four miserable years. I started on the recommendation for the type O diet. Within days of giving up Wheat and Dairy, my skin started to clear.This was right before Thanksgiving. Now, my arms are clear and my legs, almost. The last places to heal are my stomach and back side. I have avoided many social events during these last four years. No More. Thanks to Dr. Adamo. My girlfriend has just purchased the book because she too has psoriasis. We live in s. Florida and it's miserable in the summer covering up. I look forward to next summer for the first time. THANKS "

It doesn't take as long as you might think. I was sick for years and years and within the course of this spring and summer am completely healed so long as I obey some rules and stick to my diet. Lately I have been adding things back in that I couldn't eat before at all and am just using the guide to know which ones to try to add back in (carrots, celery, fruit) and which ones not to bother. I am stronger and stay healthier than I have in over 20 years before. and the good news my LDL is only 197! I thought it would be much worse, it must be the gym keeping it lower.

I'm surprised at the items I found to avoid under the Blood 0 Type Diet because it matches 90% of the items I must also avoid after having done a rather expensive food allergy test.

It's quite a revelation, and I've never seen any other diet that matches what I must and mustn't eat as the items are quite varied and not only leaning towards dairy and wheat which are common culprits.

Just thought to post gratitude for all that I have learned from Dr. D and this board (and elsewhere really) that I have some level of discernment because of the things I've learned and don't blindly accept what is being taught. I found myself wanting to correct a certain Dr. on tv today. He likes to use models to explain things to his audience, but some of his premises and conclusions are flawed. In particular, I realized I have a pretty decent understanding of digestion and a grasp on the individuality connection. Suppressing stomach acid artifically is a bad solution I would think in just about all cases. Head shake.

Thanks.

Got linked to your conversation by a friend. I've been suffering for severe dyshydrotic eczema on my hands for over 3 years. I was the same, some days I couldn't even close my hands. Tried every cream there is. A few months ago I got introduced to the BTD, and it really made sense to me. I'm A, so I cold turkey cut all red meat, dairy and cut down on my wheat. Within a week my hands had completely cleared up! Just cutting the meat and dairy from my diet made that much of a change and I'm never going back to my old ways.

I went off the pill & started breaking out horribly (in my 20's) and it was getting close to my wedding. I tried everything imaginable & finally broke down & visited a naturopath. I absolutely recommend it!!! I saw results with my breakouts in like 3 days, lost a little weight with no working out, and my energy sky-rocketed. I used to always be tired and sick before. Even though my wedding was in August, I still abide to the guidelines of this diet. I have the app on my phone and if I eat something I shouldn't, I feel gross. I always had stomach aches before & now I can't remember the last time I felt "sick"

Dear Dr. D'Adamo:

I wanted to tell you that following your program I reduced my cholesterol 42 points in under 3 months. My doctor had told me this was impossible, since i was genetically stuck with an ever-rising cholesterol number, but eating right for  my blood type actually restored my 2004 body (weight and cholesterol) - I actually turned back the clock on myself!

I am a 56-year-old 1-legged actress, singer, songwriter, musician, teacher, director & mother who lost her leg to cancer 30 years ago. Having always kept fit and healthy, peri-menopause posed challenges to me that I was told could not be helped or reversed. But in fact, your program proved those who told me that WRONG!

Many thanks for your incredibly valuable gift of life,

Good job on the weight loss! I went through the change at 38 (45 now), quit smoking, changed careers, ended a serious relationship and gained 130lbs!! Nothing has worked for me but the eating for my bloodtype. Of course, now I have had knee problems with all that fat I'm packing. I'm started religiously following the diet on 11/1/11 and have since lost 19lbs!! My energy (and moral) is way up and my knee feels better! Imagine that! Good luck and keep it up it's so worth it...Happy Holidays from a fellow B

I read your book and followed the diet for my blood type and was intrigued that it worked.  I have been on many diets and this is not really a diet i just changed a few things that i was eating because i thought i was being healthy. I did not finish the book before i started the change so when i finished the book i found that my ethnicity is odd for my blood type.  I am 1/2 native American Indian and 1/2 Filipino my blood type is ab positive and my brother is ab negative. Just thought that might be interesting to you. I have 3 other siblings to share the book with. Anyway, loved the book and appreciate you sharing.

Another place you Dr. D'Adamo deserve recognition is for this 'posting board' - maybe one of the oldest of such interconnected places to educate, share and support - where you and old timers here create a safe place for each newbie person to learn about the fine nuances of what in short is called BTD !

BTD type of living - the Queen of personalized diets supporting your current health,  
Geno type eating -  the King in ability to influence your future health,  
Swami type educating - the Emperor of a computer project, a work in progress creating individualized body & cell health.    

Yes!  Dr D... Indeed..  


Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

.....a garland for Dr. D that is created from our expressions of gratitude to him.  I suggest that we write these posts addressed to him, instead of about him.  I know that we have all shared stories of how our lives have been improved because of him.  These beautiful posts are scattered throughout the Forum, and I know Dr. D has missed reading a lot of them because he can't possibly read every post that we write.  He is too busy doing the wonderful things that we are grateful for!

Hi Sir,
I stumbled upon your book a few days a go only and you have touched I think something great .
I have been trying all kinds of cures without success ; my problem is that my lymph nodes are as it were stuck in kinda glue and I ve always been frustrated not being able to rid of that stuff .
At the reading of the intro in your book dealing with AB blood types ( that is mine ) I could discover this mention of glue ; as far as i am concerned, this glue was directed towards my nodes a long time ago ( I had it already as a kid and I m now 42 ) and even lymphatic drainage was of no effect .
I have thus started to follow your feeding recommendations in your booklet but I feel it is probable i am now on the right track .
I have always wondered how it was possible for a plethora of writers, authors and the like to publish books about the would-be optimal diet without taking parameters specific to individuals into account .
My particularity is i am a bodybuilder and this glue in the same time ¨pulls¨¨ the fascia in the immediate neighborhood which creates a feeling of compression . Not too long ago, I noticed the muscles in my case that are problematical in terms of development are exactly the ones located near the lymph nodes .
This blockage consequently alters and impedes the circulation and of course my digestion is absolutely awful ( sometimes flatulence for 2 hours ).
Anyway, it was a pleasure to chance upon your book and I hope you will read these few lines. It is still a bit too early now to talk about results but I will keep you informed .
In the meantime,I wish you a very happy new year .
Thanx .

"I just ordered your blood testing kit. It was so simple to do and I have been putting it off for a while. I am an O but I don't know what my husband is and then I can find out about my children. I think he's an O also, so my children will be O's and it will make life easier and cooking too!! I have been on Eat right for your type for about 6 mo and what a difference my life is. I have never felt better!! And after years of Drs telling me to eat more fiber (which consisted of wheat) my stomach issues are gone!!!!! I just wish I knew about this 50 years ago! Oh well I still have 50 to go!!!!! Thanks to you!!"

My goodness, I love the Geno Type Book!  Had a hard time with the leg measurements, hope I did it right.  I am an Explorer with O positive blood and I'm not left handed.  However, do I totally disregard all I have practiced over the years with your BTD book???  I am a huge advocate of your book and have helped many people get on board with the diet.  I am a non-secretor as well so the Explorer is good for me.  I really want to get started with this GTD....and like the idea of eating some of the things that were an AVOID before.  Does this diet over ride the BTD and I should just start from here and let go of the old and start new.  Even with the vitamins?  God bless you Dr. D'Adamo, you're doing an outstanding job for this world.  I will be happy to share all my experience with people as I did with the BTD because I believe in your work.  Thank you for your time.

I actually had followed this diet loosely nearly 10 years ago and had lowered my cholesterol by about 50 points in 3 months. I followed it for a while and then got away from it for whatever reason and pretty much forgot about it. Recently, my cholesterol is up again and I decided to lose some weight this year as well. I started following it loosely about a week ago and have surprisingly already lost about 4 pounds. I am very excited. I think this is exactly what I need.

My youngest was very sick... at her worst point she was on 8 prescription meds and one of them was formula. Within 6 months of eating right she no longer needed her meds and started gaining weight. She is living proof that this works!

I am a 45 year old male, blood type A (don't know if I am secretor or non-secretor).
I was interested in the blood type diet many years ago and only incorporated a few parts for a few months and then was distracted and did not continue.
I've been slightly overweight for many years, with up and down bouts in weight control and energy levels, etc., indigestion, acid reflux, joint pain, back pain, colds and sinus infections a few times a year, low or fluctuating energy levels; but no major health issues. I should add that I had tried to eat more healthy in recent years, by avoiding fried foods or high fat foods and fast foods; but I didn't see a lot of changes, and in fact I slowly gained weight.  I would try to get my weight down to about 180-185. but it always crept up to 190-195. And it didn't seem to matter what I ate under the previous diet regime, I couldn't control my weight or quicken my metabolism without exercise.
Last year, I went for an annual physical and the blood work showed an elevated cholesterol level (both parents are on cholesterol and blood pressure medicine, so I have a history to battle with).
My values were LDL 156, HDl 49, Triglycerides 143, total Cholesterol 234. The blood work was done in early February 2011.  My weight was about 203 lbs, and I am about 5'9.
I was put on a statin medication to lower the cholesterol, but I had a reaction to the medication that was unpleasant.  The doctor couldn't explain it, but it was clearly from the medication.  Rather than try a different medication, I opted to try changing my diet and increasing exercise to take some weight off.
As of March 2011, I began the blood type diet and slowly eased my way into it over the course of a few weeks.  By summer I was basically focusing on just beneficial and neutral foods, and more or less avoiding the avoid foods.  While it was not entirely simple at first, it grew increasingly easier over time, especially with the support of my wife, who is also a type A.  While she didn't follow the diet as strictly as I did (her cholesterol was elevated as well), she also ate along with me and changed her diet somewhat as per the Blood Type diet for Type A.
I began swimming about 3-5 times a week to complement this change in diet, and I tried to work toward a caloric intake of about 2400 calories per day when I was exercising and about 2000 per day when I wasn't.
When I went for my annual physical this past week (about 11 months after the last physical and blood work), the doctor remarked about the amazing change that was done without medication.
Not only has my body leveled out at about 166-168 lbs for the past few months, but my energy levels are amazing, I can sleep comfortable without back pain or other pains, I hadn't been sick in any way since last MArch until this Christmas when I got a upper respiratory cold that was going around; I have no more indigestion, no more acid reflux, and no more joint pains.  I feel like I am in my 20s again.  I should add that a new job has kept me away from exercise for the past 4-5 months, but that I am starting up again now this month.  Despite the lack of exercise, my metabolism seems to continue at its current great rate and I've had no noticeable change in my weight or other areas of my health.
The thing that I was most concerned about, my cholesterol, showed a tremendous improvement.
You will recall what my blood work showed in February 2011 from above.
In January 2012, my LDL had dropped to 116, my HDL was slightly up to 51, my Triglycerides were down to 83, and my total cholesterol was down to 183.
I feel great; I feel the blood type diet isn't really a diet anymore.  for the past several months it just became a part of my lifestyle, and I feel so great that I have no cravings for the avoid foods that I used to want to eat.  I also don't overeat, because I feel satisfied from all the whole foods that I eat from the beneficial and neutral lists as a part of my diet in the appropriate quantities.
I attribute my success to the blood type diet, and I wanted to let you know and thank you for your ongoing work.
I have the the Eat Right 4 Your type book, and I received the Cook right 4 your type book for Christmas.  I have the IPhone App and refer to it from time to time for a few of the foods that I have not yet committed to memory or when I am shopping.
Thanks again!

I am so glad that I read your book and found out about this way of eating.  I have been bothered by heartburn and stomach problems for a long time and since I have been following the foods that you have suggested in your book, I have not experienced any of the symptoms and have lost 14.5 pounds effortlessly.

I have also purchased the cook book and make many of recipes and find them very tasty and satisfying.  One thing I have found, is that I am not constantly "grazing".  It has opened up a wider variety of foods that I otherwise wouldn't have tried.

Thank you for all your work.

When this is done 80% of the time (or more), the results are amAzing. It is most beneficial if the exercise program is partnered with the change of eating habits. Remember, this is a healthy way 'diet' not a weight loss diet but the weight loss is an added benefit.

Dr. D'Adamo work on Blood Type change my life in a huge way.  I was so ill 4 years ago I didn't think I was going to live much longer.

The impact of his work led me to find a career in the holistic nutritional field. As a result I am a student at the Institute of Integrated Nutrition in New York, for certification as a holistic health coach. As I study all the dietary theories I know that for the most part those theories are not working for everyone because they simply are not considering blood type.  After I become certified I want to further expand my knowledge base in the blood type diets.
Are there any classes or certifications that one can obtain in the Blood Type Diet?
Thank you so much Dr. D'Adamo you work save my life.

Warm Wishes...

have been following the A+ for about 7 weeks...feel amazing, no more bloating and have lost about 1 1/2 stone!!!! I have more energy and everyone is now wanting to know what I've been doing...i'm spreading the word about the blood group diet !!!what i love about this is there is no weighing/measuring/points counting etc as there is with all the other diets i've done over the years. i have to say i'm never hungry, my shape has totally changed from being pear shape to not ! I did have a specific reason to try and lose weight...my son is getting married in March and I had ordered a dress over the internet and when it arrived it didn't fit...the zip wouldn't go up the last 5" and i was devastated, I tried it on last week and it went up with ease and is now a little too big!!! Tears of joy that day...good luck with it and do stick to it...you will be surprised how quickly you see results..measure yourself at the start because the inches literally drop off you

We would like to just write a quick note to you to express our gratitude.  We found out this book about 2 years ago.  We tried to adhere to it but unfortunately did not succeed.  My husband is O and I am an A.  We had just had our first child and found it too overwhelming - the shopping, the food prep etc.  2/3 years had gone by and my husband was just not feeling "right".  His joints ached, we were both unhappy with our physical selves etc.  He decided to revisit the book and we have not turned back.  Something just clicked.  I find life
