I'm trying to eat as many of my diamond foods as possible, but I just can't digest some of them.

Example: since my gallbladder was removed, I can't digest lettuce but I have been able to replace lettuce with raddish sprouts.

I love lentils and need their protein, but I just can't digest them.  



Is there something you can eat with these type of foods to help digest them?



Is it common to not be able to digest all your diamond foods?

I've also had my gallbladder out.  

Foods on my beneficial lists that I can't digest (don't feel well after eating) are apples, bananas, raspberries, turkey, lentils, pine nuts, and bell peppers.  Kinda makes you wonder, right?

Interestingly, I feel just fine if I consume some avoids, such as yogurt, coffee (I STILL miss my coffee after all this time!), cashews, pistachios, mozzarella, RAW milk, bacon.  Of couse I stay away from them, but they never "digestively" affected me.

Sigh...

Srouting the legumes! Great idea Lola, thanks!

Wow, Rennie, that's a lot of foods choices that you can't have.

When your gallbladder has been removed, it can no longer regulate the amount and timing of bile that is released into the digestive tract.  I think I recall that bile is essential for proper protein digestion and not for carbs...  There may be herbs or food combinations (or separations) that will aid in the digestion of some of these foods, but I haven't looked deep into it...

Most of us because of eating the wrong foods for our types for so long need extra help to be able to digest our foods. I use bromelain and recommend it to my clients and those that I share the BTD with. Fresh pineapple added to your diet (bromelain enzyme comes from pineapples) and eaten daily will help. But if you can't handle the extra sugar from the pineapple just take the supplement. Don't eat canned pineapple and think you are getting bromelain though... because in canned, the bromelain enzyme has been cooked out in the canning process. I take one to two capsules before eat meal that I'm having protein (fish) or veg protein as those for me are hardests for my body to digest.

Also another thought too, is that just because your blood type or GTD tells you that something is beneficial or a diamond, doesn't mean that is really is. Dr. D tells us all to listen to our bodies. If you are eating something and it doesn't feel beneficial... listen to your body. As we learn what a beneficial item feels like over time we'll have a better base to know what really is beneficial and what doesn't fit our personal epigenetic codes. We are all snowflakes epigenetically! Totally unique and special! We need to be careful not to pigeon hole ourself into our BTD or GTD.

I think that A's & AB's justamente should always be aware to take some enzymes with their meals...dito some betain HCL justamente before meals (about 20' ) should solve the problems ....

the real yummiciolous no-no's for me are all kind of soy products and lentils, dito macadamian nuts.... .... here I gett really severe reactions...

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!

Healing the gut will make a big difference in how you digest your food. Not enough emphasis can be placed on the gut and the need for it to be healthy. We have blood type specific bacteria in the intestines that need support.

A's can use bitters a half hour before meals to increase digestive juices.
Knowing secretor status is also another piece of the puzzle.
