Change, change, change... I am a Type A+, non-secretor. With the genotype book, I was a teacher, then at first I was a warrior, then I was an explorer, then suddenly I was a warrior again. I recently found out I am lactose intolerant - and now I am an explorer again. In January I found out I had diabetes and high liver function, then a couple of weeks ago I found out I had a thyriod problem and now I am lactose intolerant. I have been eating vegan for a while now, because I read Dr. Neal Barnard's book on reversing diabetes. I also had issues with eating fish due to all the contamination of the oceans in the last two years. I am so confused. Will it change again with the updates so eagerly awaited?  I had fewer dairy choices as a warrior, than I do now as an explorer - my benefial dairy list is much longer now - which makes no sense since I am lactose intolerant. I had been loosing weight eating vegan until I started taking the thyriod med - now I am at a plateau with weight loss. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Just curious but even if you have  more choices in dairy, how much are you allow daily? While you might have more choices, you might not be allow very much at any given time.

Many cheeses are very low in lactose, as the lactose is removed during the cheese-making process.

Definitely take a look at your SWAMI serving size reccomendations. I only get 1-3 ounces of cheese, 3 times a week, yet I have two beneficial cheeses and 6 neutral cheeses. 8 cheese choices yet only 3 servings per week- and those servings aren't really full servings anyway. I get cheese as a condiment, not a protein source. My daughter, meanwhile, has only one beneficial and 3 neutral cheeses, but she can have 2-4 ounces 5 times a week. That means 5 meals per week where dairy is the main protien, even if she only eats mozzarella and feta.

I've found that it's nearly impossible for me to eat  cheese yet keep to the reccomended portions. I'm really not sure how my body would respond if I ate only beneficial cheeses, and in the right quantity, because I haven't been able to do it. When I do eat cheese, I inevitably end up eating too much, and then I get all my old "dairy" symptoms that I identified long before I found BTD: nasal stuffiness, shortened temper, and an increase in fibromyalgia symptoms.

As Ruthie says not all cheese is the same.. many on your list will probably help your gut.

Encourage you to get some supplements from D'Adamo Personalized Nutrition to speed your healing process.. call them and tell them what your problems are they will guide you.

Hey ruthiegirl - I can relate to your difficulty in sticking to your recommended portions for cheese, it's one of my favorite foods. While I was on the BTD, I longed for cheese, there are very few cheeses on the Type A plan that were appealing to me. But now on my SWAMI I am allowed a decent amount of cheeses that I happen to love. But I know I would totally overindulge if weren't watchful. I get out the digital scale and weigh my cheese portion, slice my baguette, pour a glass of wine and call it dinner.

Depending on your bread allowance, a 3ounce serving of cheese may or may not be satisfying, but for me, even thought doesn't look like enough at first, 3 ounces turns out to be a pretty good serving. On the digital scale, I weigh it out to the tenth of an ounce so I can get every possible sliver of cheese that I possible can If that wouldn't be enough for a light meal, it might certainly be an indulgent snack for you.

It works as a condiment- say, a tablespoon of quark (beneficial) on top of spicy eggs and veggies.

I do plan to eventually re-introduce quark to my diet, as it's tasty, easy to make, and is a "beneficial." However, it needs to be when it's NOT allergy season and when I've healed enough to not keep going into flares every few weeks. Plus I'm planning to make it with the highest quality milk I can find, rather than buying a gallon at Costco, making cheese with half and saving the other half for DS to drink.

I hope someday I can add it back too.  I'm not sure when that'll be.  It seems to stop me up, give me too much mucous, etc etc.  So I just avoid it.  I realize there are some good things in cheese (butyric acid) but I feel better off without it.  Although I probably need to try and eat a tiny bit here and there as a condiment, like ruthie says.

I get more serving of dairy as well as more diary chioces. Yes, I did check the lactose intolerance  - I actually had to call to have it "unlocked" since when I started I was not intolerant. I had been eating vegan- no dairy at all, when something cheesey tempted me and I couldn't resist. It was a cheese on my beneifial list - still is with the change of type - I had an extreme bad reaction to it - stomache cramps, diaherria (misspelled?) and over all bad feeling. When I described it to my doc, she said I was lactose intoerant. None of the other food was new or out of the ordinary. I am back to eating vegan and no problems. I will not eat any cheese - it is not worth it.

I think it's one of those types of foods that can really mess with people.  According to my doctor.  Causes inflammation, etc.  Wheat and dairy.
