Quoted from JJR
I don't go easy on fruits.  They keep me regular.  But I do lean towards the less sugary.  Like granny smith apples instead of a more sweet one.  Grapefruits.  But I do eat prunes and pineapple and a few other sweet ones.  Blueberries.    


I agree with you here JJR, and I do eat a reasonable amount of fruit. It's just that some folks tend to reach for fruit too often thinking it's the best choice, when it really needs to be balanced within the entire dietary profile.

I'm confused. Is this a personal preference, an A1 vs A2 differentiation, or something else? If A1 v A2, all the more reason to determine that parameter. Soy works really well for me, but admittedly there hasn't been a type O in my recent lineage (possibly never).

I wish I knew Averno.  It may have something to do with our specific SWAMI profiles, but it is clearly an avoid for me.  Although, the Soy protein (but not tofu) moved to neutral when I adjusted the Nonnie portion of the SWAMI.   That’s fortunate because Whey protein is still an avoid.

Soy is just one of them foods.  I think people have a tenancy to over react to Dr. D's pro soy status.  Because some of us, after having been tested, show it might not be the best answer.  My son is an A and has allergies to it.  Both classic and gut.  I've got explorer issues and I don't detox estrogen well, so I'm better off not eating it regularly.  I haven't ate it at all for a long time.  I'm not against it.  I even like soy milk.  My wife drinks soy milk in her fru fru coffee drinks when she gets starbucks or that type of a thing.  Because she became sensitive to cow dairy.  

And then there is controversy about the quality of soy.  A known GM food.  

So.....  that's my 2 cents on soy.  I'm not saying don't eat it.  But I am saying it's not a silver bullet as some make it out to be for all A's and AB's.  And I would stick with high quality, organic stuff that hopefully isn't genetically modified.

In fact, something just dawned on me.  I wonder if that's why my wife has been having thyroid issues.  But I do know that her Mom and Grandma have and had thyroid issues, so it might not be the soy.  But it's something to consider.

I do wish that the coffee joints would stock Almond milk, but you’re right about people believing Soy as a silver bullet.

I’ve never really liked it so it’s not a problem to avoid.  However, meal replacements either give you soy or whey.  In those instances, soy is better for me (though whey seems to fill me up better).

Thankfully, I don’t rely on it often as I tend to just eat basic foods.
