BTD Forums  /  Eat Right 4 Your Type  /  Rolled Oats for Blood Type O
Posted by: 5347 (Guest), Friday, May 1, 2009, 1:55am
I recnetly found out that I'm type O.  

I noticed that Oatmeal is on the Avoid list for type O.

But I also noticed that one of the recipes in the book in the type O section calls for rolled oats.  

I recently looked at my container of Quaker Oats Oatmeal and it said the ingreadients are 100% whole grain rolled oats.

I guess I'm confused.  I'd assume that a main ingreadient in one of the recommended recipes wouldn't be on the avoid list but it seems that it is.

What am I missing here?

Thanks,
John

Lola,

Thanks so much for the info on choosing a blood type shield.

I know I'm O but don't know about the secretor thing right now.

And thank you for pointing me to the typebase area.

John

This might help with your question about oats.

As an O, eating protein for breakfast is really a much better option. Oatmeal will cause weight gain for an O so if weight is an issue it would be best to avoid it.

If a food's status changes (like if Dr. D makes a new discovery and changes oats from okay to not okay), it will be noted in the Typebase, but all the recipes in old books and even online won't necessarily reflect these changes.

Welcome to the forums, John!

Hello John, nice to meet you :)

If you do decide to eat oats, I would suggest you look for gluten-free oats. Supermarket varieties like Quaker are usually contaminated with wheat because the oats are processed  on machinery that also processes wheat.

GF oats are a bit more expensive but well worth the price. Your local HFS (health food store) or natural foods store might have them. If they don't carry them, talk to the manager and see if they would be willing to order them for you.

If GF oats aren't available to you that way, a quick google search will turn up sites where you can order online.

I love oats but save them for special occasions. Oatmeal and oat flour tend to spike my blood sugar and cause weight gain, but eaten now and then they don't give me too much grief.

Hope this is helpful to you. Welcome to the board, I look forward to your posts :)

I am an O and I have always had instant oats with sesame powder and flaxseed powder for breakfast. I thought it helps to lower chlesterol and it does help me stay full longer (as opposed to just having fruits for breakfast) I stopped eating oatmeal for breakfast 2 days ago and I will see how I feel!
