As far as I know type O produces more IAP than type B which is why O's need more animal based protein. I think a 'high protein-high fat' diet for B's would involve less animal protein than the equilalent type of diet for O's. Whether B's could thrive on such a diet would involve a lot of other factors though high intake of animal protein would not be one of them.

most Bs here do better on full fat dairy, and lamb, one of their beneficials is also high in good fat, specially if organic, grass fed, high in CLA

Dr. D says that B's are pretty good with the alk phos, but don't produce as copiously as the O's, which is fine with us: Who needs ulcers?

While B's thrive on meat, there's individuality/genotype here, too. I generally feel GREAT when I eat a decent amount of meat - even neutrals like beef - but over time I find myself cutting back again and going through less meaty phases: A week here or there where I'll eat meat/fish only a few times. Periodically I KNOW I need meat. I'll get a craving for red meat if I haven't had it in awhile. Oh, there's just nothing like it... :D So satisfying. High animal protein has never had a BAD effect on me, however.

I dunno. As a healthy B secretor, I don't find I have to sweat quite as much small stuff as other bloodtypes and secretor types do. And I think we Nomads are also pretty hardy.

B's in general will have more than there A and AB brethren.  Only you can tell though.  If your poop starts floating after eating too much meat and fats, it's an indication that you're not digesting.

One of my problems, even as an AB, is not getting fat to be processed properly.  Throughout my life, it hasn't always been as big a problem I don't think.  But it is now.  I really watch my fat intake.  Even though I need it.  But if your gut is functioning properly, you probably can get away with quite a bit.  My Mom and daughter are B's and they seemed to be able to put away the oils and cheese and it actually seems to help them feel better.  When my Mom roasts veggies, she uses more oil than I would eat in a week.  I get kind of freaked out by it.  Hehehehhehe
