Well... I was a vegetarian and felt horrible as one.  :-/ But that was before I knew about the BTD and was eating alot of avoid legumes.

I think you will need to amp up your animal protein sources as much as possible... eating lots!! of fish and eggs.. and see how much dairy you can tolerate. I hope you live in an area where you have a good source of high quality fresh fish available.

Also dense protein in the morning for breakfast (fish or eggs) is important to provide a consistent source of energy throughout the day.

Oh... and welcome newby B Lisacanfly!!! You can get a B avatar up in the member center under avatar settings.

Hi Lisa,

I have a Type B friend, age 69,  who was vegetarian [no fish] for 20 years.  She began to have episodes of atrial fibrillation, so weaned herself onto a paleo [type O -like] diet and 'cured' herself after pharma meds made her worse.
By the time she changed she was in permanent a-fib but after 6 months she now only gets an episode if she cheats.
Her staple diet is vegetables, fruit, fish and MEAT!

Welcome Lisacanfly
Iīm a former veggie as well- but felt too bad....
I think as long as you do fish, eggs and dairy, youīll be fine.
BUT remember to stay away from too many grains
I think I used to be a starchtarian and not a vegetarian ;-D

Hi Lisacanfly,
What a nice name!  :-)  Welcome to the Forum, and I hope you will keep up posted on how the BTD is working for your body.  

I was a vegetarian for more than 20 years, and it was steadily wrecking my health.  But I actually didn't start eating fish until the last few years of my veggie life, and that was only once a week or so.  I don't know how it would have worked if I had given my body enough fish, eggs and yogurt.  And I was eating plenty of avoids during that time also.  

My advice is to eat as many beneficials as you can manage from the foods that you are willing to eat.  And do your best to not eat any avoids at all.  Check out LR4YT and give some thought to the portions and frequencies that Dr. D has recommended and you will probably do ok.  The tendency for vegetarians is to rely too heavily on carbs and sweets, so beware.

Hm :-/  it is interesting how many Bīs that used to be vegetarians.
My best friend and my sister as well.
My sister and I was only vegetarians some of the time I would have some chicken if I ate out.
BUT boy I just canīt bear to think about the ammounts of avoids oils, lentils, beans and grains I consumed daily....
My best friend was vegan... really wrecked her health.

Funny enough when I started to eat meat -just before I got pregnant 14 years ago- I found out that I really liked meat and strange enough better red/rare than well done -  and actually better than fish.

I think if you do not eat meat
- eat the highest frequency of fish 5 servings pr week,
nuts 7 servings pr week,
beans 7 servings pr week ,
dairy, cheese etc  - and maybe eat a few more eggs than recommended.
Bīs really need high protein diets with dairy and NOT soy products and plenty of veggies and fruit.

Thanks for your reples Henr1etta and Victoria. I am doing great ...finding the pineapple, lethicin and linseed oil impact yet. Going of wheat isn't much of a problem wasn't eating much anyway. The splet whole flour works well for me and my O husband...he loves the new bread said it is the best he ever ate! Although it takes a little more time because I must do it all by hand because spelt flour rise faster then regular flour.
The only thing I am concerned about is the amount of fish to eat to meet the protein reguirement. Today fish (the bigger the fish the worse the problem) is contaminated with pesticides and heavy metals especially mercury. I think companies should be made to report on the packaging how contaminated the fish is including tuna.
If anyone out there knows of testing going on please post it to me.
thanks from Cumbria, England

Hi Lisa - as a fellow european ;-D :
Go for the leaner fish:
like cod, monkfish, hake, haddock, flounder, sole  they are less polluted than fatty fish.
I know you can get really good farmed organic salmon in UK- that might be an option.
I think we got it from Waitrose when I was visting last....

I know that the fatty fish salmon and herring from the baltic sea is not recommended women and girl children here so I avoid theese and try to do less fatty fish- Iīm not that crazy about it anyhow...

Yes speltflour works fine- just donīt overdo it for you O ;-)

Nice to see another european B :-D

Thanks Henriette,
I will keep that in is ashame about the fatty fish because it is the most nutritious. I will look out for the salmon and farmed fish.

True that the fatty fish is most nutritious
- but the other fish contain good stuff as well- like high class proteins.... so

Welcome to the forum, lisacanfly.

If you are omitting meat food items; I would encouragge you to experiment with and to utilize the higher frequencies and portions outlined by Dr. D'Adamo in one of his ER resource books.

Please remember to include as many beneficial vegetables as a base in you meals.

Hi Lola,
The spelt recipe is easy
oven temperature 220C/ fan 200C/ 425F/ gas mark 7
500g/1lb white spelt flour  or     200g wholegrain spelt flour plus 300g white spelt flour
1/2tsp salt
1tsp quick yeast ( fast acting)
1tsp brown raw cane sugar or honey
300ml/10fl.oz warm water(not boiling will kill yeast)
1tbsp olive oil
1. mix together the flour,yeast and sugar in a large bowl
2. carefully measure the water ( you may need a little more if dry) roughly mix into flour
3. while the dough is still craggy add oil and knead well until smooth and pliable
4.leave dough in a bowl covered in draft free place, allow the dough to double in size (about an hour) To make a quick bread omit this stage and proceed to step 6
5.Turn dough out on a floured surface and knead firmly for several minutes.
6. shape the dough put into 1kg/2lb loaf pan or place it on an oiled baking sheet
7.cover and leave to rise for 25 minutes in a warm place.
8. bake in pr-heated oven for 35/40 minutes (I found 45 is enough, if the loaf sounds hollow when you flick the top with your finger is is ready)
Happy eating

Quoted from Lisacanfly
...Would like to know if anyone else is B type and vegetarian and how they have handled the diet. I do eat fish, dairy and eggs...

The only time I felt content & happy being vegan was times I was able to grow my own foods and have the time to also harvest the wild foods and weeds.

Store-bought Organic just didn't cut it for me.

As for vegetarian - I eat more Fish/Goat and dairy during the winter for the fats. About the only dairy I do take is occassional Raw Whole Jersey milk for Coffee & Joghurt in my salads.

If I ever had the oppurtunity to live in tropics and have fresh tree ripened Mango & passionfruit things would most definitely be different.

Thank you for the spelt bread recipe, Lisacanfly.

And yes, ER resources refers to all of Dr. D'Adamo's R4YT books.
