Accent on the "practitioner", I'd say.
Renunciation of carbohydrates is fraught with dangers, given we know nothing about you, your health, your history. Carbs are a major food group. Many vitamins and fiber are easily able to nourish you via carbohydrates.
Please don't risk serious deficiencies by pursuing such a diet without access to the requisite lab tests and someone to assist you in interpreting the results, helping you to craft a truly healthful regimen, just right for YOU.

Sure - many of us do well to cut back on our carbohydrate load. The proper resolution, however, is to then identify the amount of carbs enabling our optimal health, rather than removing this vital major food group from our diets. Nowhere does Dr. Peter D'Adamo suggest abstinence from carbohydrates. But he does suggest a general number/size of portions and is quite flexible with these. Why not use the minimal portions he suggests? And if this is still too much for you, let us know how the dadamo web forum can help you.

Welcome.

Are you 100% sure about your blood type? It's not common, but there HAVE been people who thought they were one blood type but turned out to be another. If you're actually an O or a B, then your SWAMI would be flat-out wrong for you (the blood type field can be unlocked if you contact customer service.)

I eat a well rounded diet, with fats, proteins, and carbs in it on a regular basis.   Also many plant foods and some fruits.  I feel much better eating nourishing foods.  Balance is the key.  In fact i can handle pretty much any food now.  A sure sign the digestion and liver is not working well is if there are many foods that are making you feel bad all the time that you used to be able to eat just fine.  This is different than a true allergy.  I do not give numbers a thought for the most part in terms of food usually unless i am curious.  If i'm hungry i eat, if i am full i do not eat.  I usually eat for the explorer genotype, but will enjoy a meal with some avoids if a guest serves it with no ill effect.  Use the right foods as medicine.  If you have a health condition or illness, then tighten up and eat superfoods and no avoids if possible.

There are reasons a Type A should rely more heavily on vegetable proteins and some grains rather than meats.

One of the prominent risks for type A is cardiovascular issues, red meat in particular seems to exacerbate that risk.

One description of a ketogenic diet:  http://www.ketogenic-diet-resource.com/ketogenic-diet-plan.html

Quoted Text
The nutrient intake on a ketogenic diet typically works out to about 70-75% of calories from fat, 20-25% from protein, and 5-10% from carbohydrate on a daily basis when calories are not restricted.  Although calorie counting is not required, it is important to understand how macronutrient percentages can be affected by caloric intake, so you may want to read my page on calorie counting to get more information on this subject. In short, low or very high calorie intake will skew the percentages of macronutrients, so keep this in mind.

Os and B's could hack this.  Even A explorers it is recommended to keep the alloted meats lean and generally have a lower fat intake than for an O hunter or B nomad, which are lucky to not need to be as concerned about fats.  A's have low IAP levels, A nonnies the lowest of em all!

Catherine,

Of course you can ask.

BF is a thin slice of deli turkey with 1/3 chopped avocado on a lettuce wrap

Lunch is 1.5 -2 oz protein, 1/3 avocado, a handful of veggies all mixed in a bowl and drizzled with a little olive oil

Dinner is 3 oz protein, 1/3 avocado and a bigger handful of steamed veggies.

Snacks are 3-4 nuts a couple times a day, maybe some olives or a few veggies dipped in a mayo based dressing/ sauce

My proteins are various. A slice of turkey every morning but lunch and dinner could be tuna, salmon, shrimp, tilapia loins, cod, flounder, turkey, chicken, lamb or beef. I prefer lamb over beef usually.

Veggies are lettuce for wraps, celery, bok choy, scallion, red onion, green beans , lots of asparagus lately, little bits of broccoli as it's pretty high carb for me, a few brussel sprouts, mushrooms, and occasionally kale but I don't digest it well. I think I over eat it too haha.

Fats are mostly avocado, olive oil ( but not tons) pecans, Macs and pumpkin seeds. Olives. Mayo..Very occasionally very small amounts of butter or ghee. I try to keep saturated fat low. I cut all visible fat off my lamb chops and buy lean dutsnof grass fed beef, removing the fat. Very occcasionally a small gf burger. I eat more fish than red meat or poultry but love lamb chops.

Fruits are avocado and wine.

Grains and starches NONE

Sugars never.

80% fat sounds like a lot and 5% carbs sounds very little however if I have a lettuce wrap or lunch bowl with 1/3 avocado, a small handful of green beans, 2 oz turkey, a few bits of scallion and onion drizzled with 1/2!tablespoon of olive oil it comes out to 80/15/5. Nothing seems unhealthy to me. I eat small meals. They're typically just under one cup. I don't eat large amounts of anything. Quality over quantity

Hope that helps.

I too once thought I couldn't cope with any carbs....turns out I can, just not the ones I used to eat before I did low carbing.  Since then I have reintroduced the ones recommended to me in BTD and then Swami and have done much better.  I think you should listen to what your body is telling you - if you tune out everybody else's opinion you usually get to the truth with this.  And I think toilet behaviour is really important!  I was chronically constipated without some carbs in diet, even with lots of fat.  The day I reintroduced bananas I magically 'went'.  But that is just my experience - sounds like yours is the opposite!

Problem is, the more specific you get, the more it becomes a 'medical device'.
Some things are best left to a practitioner.

SWAMI does not substitute for medical care.

So an urgent section means maybe it is best to see a Naturopath for more corrective treatment.

BINGO!
Having said that, I actually used a banana in tonight's dinner -- it provided body/fiber and sweetness to a vegetable dish - what a cool ingredient. Definitely not an "everyday" one for this Nomad, but it has its (new) place. I'd had beef at Lunch, then, later, some cheese for a snack, and that was enough protein for me today, said My Body.

I'm still learning, still listening.

Bananas are nice with extra virgin coconut oil, a favored fat for me, so my guess is that with YOUR favored fat it'd be enjoyable, too.
Filipino cuisine uses the avocado a LOT in shakes and desserts; my guess is you'd find plenty of inspiration among some of its cookbooks.

Simple is better. Scoop, sea salt, eat. I'm not into cooking and more so making dirty dishes anymore. Lazy in the kitchen these days.

Bananas aren't on my menu. For loads of reasons though I do love them. They make me ravenously hungry after just one bite. Sure do miss banana cake with all that cream cheese frosting!!!
