It would also depend on the genotype.  All the A genotypes, even explorers, have some types of wheat products they can eat.  And they all have meats (if you consider fish meat).

There is one particular thing about the SWAMI diet that I've noticed, and that is that even if we have the same blood type and the same Geno type, that doesn't mean that we can tell someone else what is best for them to eat! All we can do is speak or write in generalities about everything except about what so remarkably works for our own bodies. And most of us have plenty we can say about that! We know that there are some foods on our SWAMI diet that work a lot better for us than others at a given time. But as we progress, even that can change dramatically because additional foods begin to work for us as well or maybe even better than the best ones had before! I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that I am going to suffer dramatically from eating my diamond cheeses if I forget to take lactase with them. When I don't forget, my diamond cheeses are a wonderful benefit! Some of these things we have to learn for ourselves. BUT it is interesting to get input from others on different subjects because it helps to recognize things that otherwise we might not have already noticed. To me this is a wonderful benefit!

Quoted from JJR
I don't agree, however, that poultry isn't considered "meat".  If it's not meat, what is it than?  Even fish I've never heard of it not being a "meat".  Meat is muscle.  That's how I see it.  

While I will agree that poultry and fish are animal flesh foods, the diet has food broken into specific categories and it is easier to keep terminology clear if we speak in common terms.  The "meats" are broken into red meat, poultry and fish/seafood.  For purposes of clarity, it is much easier to keep to these terms.  
If I say meat, speaking of red meat, but you read fish, there can be some potentially significant misunderstanding...

In the context of swami, I totally understand what you're saying joe and that makes sense.  I will move forward with that understanding.  And I totally agree with your spring.!

It all comes down to individuality. Some A's get white flour as a neutral. Some don't have any obvious reactions to beef, even if they know they shouldn't eat it and generally avoid it anyway.

A pasta dish, with wheat being the main component of the meal, probably wasn't the best example to choose from. Almost any restaurant is going to have better options than THAT. But what if the only chicken is dredged in flour before frying, and the fish is all breaded? Some burger places offer 100% beef burgers (and will leave off the bun on request) but their "veggie burgers" may contain wheat  gluten.

Many people who wouldn't tolerate the pasta dish might do OK with smaller amounts of wheat in a more balanced meal (such as flour-touched chicken strips on a bed of greens with olive oil and lemon wedges.)

I suppose the answer is to choose the most compliant option from the menu, and don't be shy about asking the waiter/waitress for substitutions. Over time, you'll discover which are the worst offenders for you personally.
