BTD Forums  /  Eat Right 4 Your Type  /  No Yogurt?
Posted by: 1495 (Guest), Saturday, November 18, 2006, 1:28am
Hi everyone - I'm new and I'm a Type O and I suspect I am a Nonnie.  I have been making my own goat's milk yogurt at home and the probiotics in it have had a tremendously good effect on my digestion and they've also helped me overcome a candida problem. But according to BTD, as a Type O I should be eating no yogurt.  Is it really so bad?  I'd hate to give up the benefits I am reaping from my daily small portion of homemade yogurt...

Welcome to the BTD!  

You can also take pro-biotics in a suppliment form, but it's the dairy that you should be avoiding (am I correct, my O friends?)

Welcome,

Do you have any health problems? How compliant are you with the rest of the type O food choices?

You might try giving up your yogurt for a week or two and see if you notice any difference without it or when you eat it again after that period.

Aside from the yogurt, I'm totally compliant.  MY only health problem is the candida.  Before I introduced the yogurt, my candida was much much worse.

If you are totally compliant except for the yogurt then the elimination diet testing may give you a clear indication if there are any obvious symptoms from it.

How much of it do you eat daily? Another thing you could try after that is to reduce your use to a smaller amount or less frequent use, like evry other day.

Still the best solution would be to use NAP's Polyflora O probiotic.

I believe it s the whey in the yogurt that s the culprit.....
place your yogurt in a colander during the night, in the fridge to make a fresh kind of cheese.......
and let the whey drain off.....

I actually did try the Polyflora and I wasn't especially impressed (am I allowed to say that here??)

This is my personal opinon, but, as you know Dr. D has books out for different disease types, and food values changes depending on disease, Everyone is individual and this is not a one size fits all diet, it could be that your particular disease (in your body alone) causes yogurt to be beneficial for you............another o with candida, maybe not, but you maybe so.  

I agree with MoDon and I would do the elimination test on it, and then if after that you can tell no difference or your symptoms get worse, add it back in

Sure!  This is a food plan for Inviduals.

My personal opinion is that if goat's milk yogurt works for you then continue to eat it.  However, I would encourage you to try Lola's suggestion and drain the whey overnight.

I usually eat two slices of Ezekiel 4:9 bread most days.  Some, perhaps most, Os would find that difficult for them, but so far it seems to work for me!

Love--and Welcome,

Myra.

No mercury fillings

We need a nickname for me - AfricanaTypeO is a bit of a mouth-full.   I think you should call me Af or Afo

Hi Lola, I don't quite understand.  If I placed my yogurt in a colander surely they'd be a horrible mess in my fridge?

Hi--

I'm sure Lola will be by in a while, but until then, I'm pretty sure she meant that to drain the yogurt you should put a large enough bowl under the collander to catch the offending whey.

Love,

Myra.

How long have you been on the Type O BTD? Have you thought about getting your secretor status tested to make sure you are following the correct BTD for your type? That might solve your candida problem.

Afo, you made me laugh. ;D What a cutie you are to ask such a question. But the whole question of draining the yoghurt is probably a good idea for lots of us, as indeed I remember that the whey has been accused before, and we could thus make our own home-made ricotta/cottage/whatever you like to call it cheese.

I'm in New York and there's some kind of weird reason we can't get the Secretor test done here.   The only people I know outside of New York are overseas.

I made some Ewe(as above) yesterday from my own homemade organic  milk yoghurt. It is nicely curdy, like whipped cream, but is very strongly sour, almost as though there is some lemon juice in the mix. I feel that this could be the base for a fabulous uncooked cheese cake if I can just get my head around it. I fear that cooking it would ruin the texture. I would also want to sweeten it  :K) but can't quite get the picture right. Any ideas?

You could probably use this "cheese" in place of cream cheese in a cheescake recipe.  You may need to experiment a bit to determine how much additional sweetener to add and whether you need a bit more thickener to absorb any additional liquid...
