BTD Forums  /  Live Right 4 Your Type  /  Can Some Neutrals Be Better Than Others?

Question is that can some abo neutrals be better than other abo neutrals for our body and bloodtype as for example  i noticed that feel better and not as bloated when i consume type o neutral black eye peas than when i consume type o neutral black beans.

Type o legumes
Black Beans ............................ Black Eye Peas
Secretor ..........neutral .............Secretor ..........beneficial
Non Secretor .. neutral .............Non Secretor ... neutral

Although i'm not a ''secretor'' however it's (black eye peas) an beneficial for my o bloodtype and so could that make it a tad better than black beans as far as neutrals go?

Can anyone understand as to what i'm alluding too here?

I would say, based on how foods are rated, some neutrals are closer to beneficial than others; however, some foods change from beneficial to avoid (or vice versa) when considering secretor/nonsecretor so I wouldn't draw the conclusion that black eyed peas are better for you than black beans.  I'd just treat them as equally-rated neutrals.

In the TypeBase, black eyed peas are listed as cancer superbeneficial for Type O so that may be why they are beneficial for Secretors, but there's something about them that makes them not as good for Nonsecretors that over-rides the cancer benefit and makes them neutral.

Black beans are notoriously difficult to digest for many people. Maybe that's all it is.

We're all unique individuals, with slightly different "beneficials" and "avoids." BTD and GTD are much more individualized than, say, Atkins or Vegetarian, but it's still not completely individualized. A food that's neutral for Os or for Hunters might be "beneficial" for you personally.

SWAMI takes individuality to a new level. There are Type O neutrals that are "beneficial" on my SWAMI (such as turkey) and type O neutrals that are black dots  on my SWAMI (such as rye) because those foods don't act like neutrals in my body. Rye is hard for me to digest, so it's a "once in a while in small portions" food, while turkey is healing. But even SWAMI isnt' perfect. It's only as good as the information entered into it, and it doesn't change until I re-run it, while my body may change a little bit from day to day.

In addition to what Ruthie said each of us being individuals. We also change over time so we are not the individual as we were 10 years ago.  

When we face particular health challenges some neutral foods may be really good at meeting our bodies needs to meet those challenges.

So if we develop Cancer (I choose this since it was mentioned above) some foods that help with that condition may move from neutral  to beneficial or avoid. In the health series books neutral is divided into neutral-allowed frequently and neutral allowed Infrequently.

Type o cancer book

Black Beans ....Secr:neutral-Allowed frequently...Non Sec: neutral-Allowed frequently

Black Eye Peas....Secr: Beneficial**.....Non Sec: neutral-Allowed frequently

ChickPeas....Secr:neutral-Allowed infrequently....Non Sec: Avoid

**This is from the book-- Typebase is more current and says "super beneficial"
