Many type O people here talk about having meat and greens for breakfast...  I suppose an egg with some vegetables would work well for you, although I'm not sure if it would be adequate protein for you...

Hey Mickeymouse...welcome to the forum and this way of life.  

As an O...I do eat eggs for breakfast, but not very often...mostly when I am somewhere else and it's the easiest and safest to have.  Beef or lamb are my preferences for breakfast with a large compliant salad drizzled with olive oil and freshly squeezed lemon juice. Had ground beef over a baby romaine, zucchini, celery, green onion salad this morning.   It makes my day.  I save the carbs (quinoa, millet, basmati rice, amaranth) for later in the day with more compliant salads or veggies and either with ghee or olive oil.   Mustn't forget your good fats/oils. Having basmati rice with green beans and arugula/spinach for lunch right now.    I do have a compliant fruit first thing and another one about mid afternoon.  

Give the steak/roast/beef/lamb and compliant veggies a try first thing and see how you feel.  It's wonderful to think outside the traditional breakfast box.

I must say that after being on BTD/SWAMI for almost a year, I still cannot get used to the idea of eating meat and veggies for breakfast. I have compliant fruits (usually half a grapefruit, a banana or an avocado), a protein shake with Dr D's protein powder for "O" and sometimes a rice cracker topped with compliant nut butter and/or a dab of ghee, scrambled eggs and sometimes a sheet of nori (seaweed). Eggs are absolutely fine for "O"s! My SWAMI gives me 7 eggs a week and I'm a happy camper   Very occasionally I would have a bite of leftover fish (salmon/tuna/sardine) if I find myself craving for it. But this doesn't happen so often. I know I'd be eating lots of veggies and animal protein later in the day so this works out fine for me.

Welcome Mickeymouse!

Most Os find that it's best to eat lower carb/higher protein and to save the day's carbs for later in the day. However, not everybody has the same experience with that. You also might want to get used to the new food list first and then later shift around the portion sizes and timing. You don't have to do it all at once.

You can even spend  a week learning about the diet before making any changes at all- kind of get it all figured out before actually doing any of it.  If you're unsure about Os being allowed to eat eggs or oats, you obviously haven't spent much, if any, time actually looking at the lists of allowable foods. Spend some time studying the food list and become familiar with it before making changes, and it won't be so stressful. Give yourself permission to continue eating what you've been eating for at least a few more days while you learn about this.

Many people cut out one "avoid" per week before cutting out another. Wheat and dairy are biggies, both because they're so important to health, and because theyr'e so prevalent that they're hard to stop eating. So do one at a time. Either cut out the wheat OR the dairy for a week before tackling the other one. So have your egg, spelt toast, and cream cheese, or have the wheat toast with mozzarella cheese or butter. Eventually you'll stop eating both wheat and cream cheese.

Eggs are definitely OK, as are oatmeal, rice, and grains such as spelt and rye. My breakfast usually consists of an omellette: 2 eggs, an onion, and about 1/2 cup of frozen peas or spinach. Sometimes I eat leftovers or a smoothie (with spinach, berries,  flax, and rice protein powder) for breakfast instead.

on the btd, O's can have chicken. On the gtd, gatherers should minimize it, but other types can have it. (explorerers?)

Mickey, if you have one of the book, read it. If you don't have the book, then go through the typebase. http://www.dadamo.com/typebase4/typeindexer.htm That's a lot more efficient than asking about every single food on this thread.

Most public libraries carry Dr, Peter D'Adamo's books. I suggest borrowing several and reading them all. If you want to buy books without using a library first, then I would suggest Live Right 4 Your Type.

Often chicken is corn fed.  Some O's don't do well on chicken because of that.

Ever since I first read ER4YT back in 1996-7, I've been having either beef, buffalo, turkey, lamb or salmon for breakfast on a regular basis.  Eggs not as much.  It's about adapting to better ways of eating for your genetic make up. In general, these are protein sources that O's do best on.  

Imho, (For Type O's on BTD or GenoType Diet) getting the bulk of our nutrients in the beginning of the day is the best way to start off the day.  Another big batch of nutrients for lunch and a much lighter, slightly more carb based dinner.

Sharing with the best of intentions.


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.

I have eggs or leftovers from dinner, and I try to have some kind of vegetables with it.  If I eat eggs, though, I automatically want toast.     I eat breakfast late (around 11 or 11:30), so I call mine brunch.  I have my green tea early with a bit of lemon and a smidge of honey.  I find it easier to drink if I let it go cold.  On Sundays, I've been making pancakes or waffles out of compliant flours and having turkey sausage because I like a traditional Sunday breakfast.  But I think I ate too many carbs last weekend, so I'm thinking I should cut back on those, too.  I must say, eating dinner leftovers for my first meal of the day rather than typical breakfast foods, satisfies my hunger and keeps the carb cravings at bay - later in the day is when I notice that.  If I had to go out somewhere for breakfast with other people, I couldn't swear that I wouldn't make a beeline for the cheese danish.  I like eating at home now because I can maintain control.  KomonaKat is probably right about having a smaller, carby type meal in the evening, rather than the first part of the day.  That is beginning to make good sense to me.

Hi and welcome.
Your local meat market should have buffalo/beef patties for $1.00 a piece or so.
It doesn't have to be that expensive

A few ideas:

Green tea cools off within minutes when you brew it then pour it over a cup of ice. No need to wait for it to cool!

I still have pancakes occasionally as Sunday dinner or late lunch.. So I still enjoy my old carby "breakfast foods," but not for breakfast.

I'm glad you mentioned that because I was thinking of making a pitcher of green tea to have over ice, like regular iced tea.  I didn't know if the healthful green tea benefits would go bad with oxidation or whatever.  I would only make enough for one day, though.  I may try that.

Another good idea.  I love breakfast for dinner.

eggs, green beans (frozen or fresh), onion, bell pepper, parsley, paprika, turmeric, garlic all scrambled together. None of these foods are costly, and of course you can substitute. I also add mushrooms but that might raise the cost some. This is a total ben for Gatherers

Welcome to the forums Mickey I joined not to long ago myself! I personally eat steak and any green veggie I can for breakfast, but it did take me a bit to get used to it. Im not sure what part of the country youre in but Ive found that Kroger has some really great deals on meat all the time.

You might want to consider having the secretor test done down the road as O nonnies can't have oat. I used to have oat cereal for breakfast every morning and turned out it was making me sick  .

Welcome!

Stick with your current egg breakfast for now, except use spelt bread toast with ghee (or olive oil) instead of wheat with cream cheese.  After a while add good quality beef or turkey breakfast sausage.  Then you can gradually transition to having supper for breakfast.

Do a search here for breakfast.  You'll see a few older threads on this subject, started by new Os such as yourself.

Good luck!


My SWAMI diet is a blend of BTD and GTD Explorer, but I'm not totally compliant.  Also I try to choose foods that have a Low Glycemic index.  DW and DD are A+, probably also Explorer.

Again, a word of caution: spelt is an avoid for non-secretors. While rye is fine for both secretors and non-secretors according to the typebase, for some may be it is not alright. For example, it is a black dot on my SWAMI, meaning I can only have it once in a while. This is not to confuse or discourage you, Mickeymouse, but just something to watch out for in the future when you've gotten more used to eating the BTD way and want to fine-tune and reap the best results

Sounds like eggs and an all-rye toast with ghee would be a good place to start at this time, then.  

It's ok to start simple and take small steps so not to be overwhelmed.

A couple of ideas from this Hunter (do you know your genotype?)

Quick Breakfast (I usually have either of these if I'm exercising in the morning):
* a couple of slices of chicken or turkey with some romaine leaves and walnuts.   Add some oregano, basil, olive oil or the great pesto sauce you can find in the receipe database
* small quantities of any of macadamias, walnuts, chocolate, carob, tahini, cranberries, flaxseeds, mixed with a sprinkle of cinnamon and or ginger in a small bowl with maybe a touch of water.


Regular breakfast.
* onions with any of following sauteed in rice bran oil, broccoli, peas, swiss chard, asparagus, with a couple of eggs.   wakame is a great addition, and or seasame seeds.
* any fresh fish.   Salmon or cod is great. with a few vege.    Salmon can be cold which is convenient and quick.   With pumpkin seeds, flax, walnuts...

Generally I dont do well on grains in the morning and definitely suggest skipping the rye, or anything with gluten until you figure out the genotype.   Rice may be a safe option meantime

I was surprised to find that what I thought was rye bread had whole wheat flour listed as the first ingredient.  Be Ware!
