Hi- I'm new here. I am in remission from stage 3c colon cancer. After my surgery and chemo I went on a so called "healthy" diet heavy on whole grains and gained 14 lbs! I also stopped eating meat. Anyone else out there with colon cancer who is following the type diet?

Greetings Imabpositive,
are you an A or AB blood type?
I have not had colon cancer but have had a lot of pain an problems down there for years but after following the BTD things are so much better. It's simply great to know I am now doing the right thing for my body.
Do you have any of Dr. D's books?
glad to have you aboard :)

Hello B Positive,
I don't have colon cancer, but am a breast cancer survivor.  I find that closely following my B diet has really made a difference in my general state of well being, digestion health and immune functioning.  Dr. D has a great product for colon health, called ARA6.  Gotta run right now, so I can't link the page for you.  Go to the NAP store link at the top of the page.

And getting your secretor status tested would be an additional tool for your continued health and healing.   :K)

Welcome, imabpositive.  Nice to have another B join the forum.  I agree heartily that meat and vegetables are slimming foods.  (I'm thinking of lamb and beneficial vegetables, particularly.)  Let us know how you progress with the blood type way of eating.

Hi, imabpositive--I'm B-positive, and new here, like you (though I've had Dr. D'Adamo's books for five years, I've just restarted the diet). Thanks for beginning this interesting thread. Grandma always said that starches were fattening, and that hasn't changed. I gained weight after stopping the Atkins lifestyle. I think I'm a protein type. Luckily, we Bs can eat dairy foods, meat, and vegetables. There's a wide range of possibilities. I sincerely hope that you find a way to eat on the B-type diet, that your condition allows. Best of luck and health to you, and greetings to the fellow Bs in here. :)

Thank you for all the comments. They have been very helpful. I just bought the book and started the diet yesterday. My original concern was with eating meat. But the weight gain should have been a bigger one regarding cancer and remission. I'm going to keep it simple and stay on the diet and will include lamb.

Hey bpositive...welcome to the forum and the BTD way of life.  When you say you bought the book...which book did you buy?  Eat Right 4 Your Type (white hard cover)...Live Right 4 Your Type (red hard cover)...or the Cancer book (white soft cover) that Dr. D has out?

Debra :)

MJeanne, our mothers and grandmothers had a lot of wisdom, didn't they?  They were right about starches.  ;)

Thanks! I didn't know about "the Cancer book (white soft cover) that Dr. D has out" Is there another title? I will buy it today if I can find it. I have a Borders near by. It sounds promising.

here, scroll down to the cancer book and read all the other titles available from the health series.

Hey, New Hampshire girl, fellow B--right! That pasta-loading diet, and the low-fat diet that the 1980s produced really just produced a lot of fat people!

Now, I see that there's Live Right for Your Type by Dr. D'Adamo, and I've already PRE-ordered on Dr. D'Adamo's The Genotype Diet.

Two pounds lost is good, bpositive!!  Every little bit is definitely progress.

Jeanne de Berenguer, I haven't read The Genotype Diet.  Let us know what you think.  So far, my favorite is Live Right 4 Your Type.  I bought the arthritis book for a relative but read it first and was impressed.  I also have the encyclopedia.  I guess you can't have too much of a good thing! ;)

If you can..try to eat organic meat and dairy. When my Dad had prostate cancer his specialist told him meat and dairy have so many hormones that trigger cancer cells to multipy. That was 8 yrs ago and he has never eaten any meat or dairy that wasn't organic..I really find the price is coming down.
