Hello! I have the book "Eat right for your type" both in English and Greek. My question is if the guidelines given in this book are just for adults or for small children as well. I have a son who will be 2 years in December and has blood type 0. I did breastfeed him for 19 months and since, according to the book, Type 0's are not supposed to eat dairies, I'm not giving him any type of milk now; just some yoghurt, because he seems to like it. Would it be better not to give him yoghurt either?

Although I know that other mammals don't need milk either after they stop breastfeeding, it's such a "common sense" to everybody that children should be drinking milk daily, that I started having doubts if I'm doing the right thing in not following this "rule". Thanks in advance for any answers.

Human milk is not like cow milk.

Yugurt may or may not be long term beneficial for O's due to the non O probiotics in the yogurt.

Go ahead an feed your O child the O diet and give your son the best chance to grow up strong!

Hello and welcome xenia

It would be best if he'd stop eating yoghurt too.. If that would be difficult to do, try to find yoghurt from water buffalo milk, that seems to be the most tolerable (and in some cases beneficial) choice.

As Tom said, follow the BTD for him, he'll benefit a lot from it.

Cheers,
Yaman

Type O gets calcium and other minerals, etc. from greens in the diet.  If you follow portion size and frequency ratios - obviously he won't eat the same amounts as an adult - he should get a good balanced diet.

As Tom says, this should provide the best opportunity for him to grow up strong and healthy.

Well, for now he is not yet too enthusiastic about greens; so what other choices are there for calcium supply? I live on a small Greek island; so there is no way I could find water buffalo yoghurt....

Lipon. What about bone broth? It's an excellent source of calcium. Put the bones in oven first, so that their porosity increase, then boil for around 6 hours.. You can prepare any soup with it..

are you a blood type O as well?

welcome!

try draining all the whey off any yoghurt or other dairy

some O genotypes do well with paneer, and it is easy to make at home

buy the best organic source of milk you can get your hands on, and load up on fresh lemons!!!

do try the bone broth Yaman mentioned a while ago......puree spinach, kale, greens full of calcium.....no one can resist the taste!!!  so good and nutritious!

also learn to make faux milk using other seed, grain, legume sources full of calcium, like chia, sesame, etc......http://wzus.ask.com/r?t=p&.....m/nomilk/altmilk.htm
your imagination is the limit.....the baby book also has great tips

yassou xenia,

I am your neighbor on Samos island, and have been last year in Ikaria. Loved it.

Why not almond milk that you can do it very easily yourself. It has a lot of calcium and is delicious.

If you need anything please contact me.

Are there liquid calcium-magnesium supplements you can give him?
Even tho I am anti-dairy, I think it is not as harmful for small children if nothing else is avaiable. Goat milk is better than cow milk. My husband grew up in northern Greece & drank sheep milk.
Nut milks have less calcium, but I bet it is better absorbed.
I wish you well & hope you can be a BTD family. At the same time, don't panic if you are not perfectly compliant. It takes time to adjust sometimes!

Back in the 1980s, I was actually dairy-free for a couple of years and got mega-doses of minerals - including calcium - from sea vegetables.
Sea vegetables are an acquired taste.
But, as a chef, I definitely learned how to present these to patrons in ways that they loved!
If sea vegetables are available to you, learn how to prepare these with fish -- the natural combination. They are so mineral rich that you don't even have to eat very much of them.
Ever considered these?
Also: Get in the habit of garnishing your foods with parsley, very generously.
These are some of the little things you can do, as you cut back on dairy.

Calcium contents, in milligrams, per 100 grams of each given ingredient, per Japanese research as appears in Herman Aihara's Acid & Alkaline:

Hijiki sea vegetable: 1400.
Wakame sea vegetable: 1300.
Sesame Seeds, black: 1100.
Kombu sea vegetable: 800.
Bancha twig tea: 720.
Nori sea vegetable: 600.
Carrot leaves: 200.
Radish leaves: 190.
Tofu: 160.
Yoghurt: 150.
Scallions, green: 100.
Milk: 100.
Spinach: 98.
Miso. 81.
Eggs: 65.
Scallions, white: 50.
Carrots, root: 47.
Cabbage, chinese: 33.
Radishes: 28.
Sweet potato: 24.
Salmon: 22.
Mackerel: 22.
Cucumber: 19.
Eggplant: 16.
Tangerine: 16.
Tuna: 11.
Bread, white: 11
Cod: 9.
Rice, white: 6.
Bonita: 6.
Bamboo shoots: 4.
Pork: 4
Chicken: 4.

Note that if you eat the bones of fishes, such as sardines, you elevate the calcium content quite a bit. But I am posting this particular list because it gives you a general idea of the quantum mineral leap you achieve when you incorporate sea vegetables into a dairy-free (or any) diet, as the Japanese so typically, and wonderfully, do.
Whereas dark leafy green vegetables may help you approximate the milk-caliber levels of calcium in your diet, sea vegetables can radically augment your stores. Remember: Dr. D'Adamo has found a species of sea vegetable he processes into his North American Pharmacal Calcium tablet, with no fillers. This is where you go when you want top-notch calcium quality and delivery.
Note: Nuts can also be high in calcium, though the food group varies quite a bit. Brazil nuts, for instance, contain a large amount of calcium; cashews do not.

Are sea vegetable safe? I mean there has been this nuclear accident in Japan recently and there's also other pollution (heavy metals). So, even if I manage to find some store in Athens to send them to me (can't order on the Internet 'cause I don't have credit cards), do you believe that there is no high risk they are polluted?

I don't really understand the question.
Do you eat fish? Is it safe?
The source for Dr. D'Adamo's maerl (for his Caicium supplements) is off of Scotland, if I'm not mistaken. Here in California, there are plenty of local sea vegetables, too. For all you know, someone may be harvesting and marketing sea vegetables in the Canaries or Baleares or Cyprus...Ask around.
