I feel just as energetic eating vegetarian protien as I do eating meat, does that mean that I can assume that it's ok for me to have meatless days every so often? I've been experimenting with it & I feel just as good either way.  My understanding from the forum is that even among O Secreters, we are so complex that our reaction to the same foods can vary at times from one another.  If I am in error to think this, please clarify.  I've read at times that some of us even react negatively from foods that are classified as beneficial for us. So, I surmise, that for me personally, if I react favorably to vegetarian protien, that I can conclude that it's ok in my case.

What kind of "vegetarian protein" are you talking about, specifically?  For example, tofu (soy) is okay for you as an O secretor.  Is that what you are talking about?

Yes, PT...I do mean Tofu (soy).  Thanks for getting back to me.

I will have a meal without meat, fish, or eggs every once in a while, but I don't have days like that.

If you are talking about beans/legumes or specifically soy, just note the recommended frequency for that food category and try to mainly use beneficials.

The negative reaction to some beneficial foods you write about is often either caused by an allergy or some other health problem. It doesn't really have anything to do with the BTD science. Now you may find that some food values shift around if you were to have SWAMI run on you and we are all waiting to see what the GTD will do to refine our diets. However, as a type O I question if you will find that plant proteins (beans/legumes) become more beneficial for you as in higher recommended frequency.

Rex, if you feel fine and you like to have a meat-free day once in a while, go for it.  Tofu is neutral for O secretors, so enjoy.

Personally (and I'm an O non, bear in mind, so we are different), like SaBonDon says, while I do enjoy a meat-free meal sometimes (particularly fruit smoothies--when I have a fruit smoothie, I don't want anything else with it), I don't like going an entire day without meat.  Throws me outta wack/balance, that.  Being a secretor, you might be able to get away with it...but listen to your body and let it be your guide.  Most of us O's need MEAT every day to be centered, in balance and thriving.  It doesn't have to be a lot of meat at all, but just a little at each meal or at most meals really makes a diff!

Don:  What is SWAMI? What is GTD?

SWAMI = Serotyping With Advanced Modifying Inventories
Quoted from Dr. D
The SWAMI is a sophisticated diet collection and display software program written by me, Dr. Peter D’Adamo. SWAMI allows you to add a significant number of new variables to the basic blood type diet values and output the results via an incredibly detailed and versatile printout. SWAMI essentially creates a printable version of one of my commercial diets (such as the Live Right For Your Type diet) that is much more person-specific.

Thanks Don.  I'm currently working my way through my copy of the Live Right For Your Type book.  I'm reading slowly so I can absorb the contents.

I like your approach to the BTD, PT.  I will listen to my body & act in it's best interest. I do try to have  at least a little meat during the course of one of those days when I feel like making it a mostly tofu day.  This approach seems to work well for me....my body seems to be telling me so.
