My son and I are A+ with an O sub type. It was suggested that we eat tofu (soy). I believe in the eat right for your type way of life and we are having a lot of success with it, but I am concerned about the the information I have been seeing about soy and estrogen and boys. Can someone clarify this for me?

Does the literature separate out people by blood types?

More on soy from the archives.

I believe the literature does not separate people out by blood types. Thank you for the information. I really appreciate it.

Also use some common sense with soy consumption. Avoid highly processed "isolated soy protein," but eat real foods like tofu and miso.  Avoid GMO soy, which generally means only buying organic (unless you're lucky enough to live in a place where GMOs are illegal.) And use common sense with portion sizes. Soy is one kind of vegetable protein, and the balanced A diet includes many different kinds of beans, lots of veggies, a little poultry and fish, etc.

Even though I am A+,I am very allergic to soy of any kind. It gives me sinus headaches and phlegm down my throat shortly after eating it.

After years of experimentation I learned to listen to my body.
This is reinforced by ER4YT.
I know that soy is beneficial for most A's.
I also believe in Dr. D's "individuality" and "one size does not fit all."

I just happen to be one of those A's that can only tolerate small amounts of soy milk or roasted soy beans/nuts, maybe twice a week. I also use the soy protein powder for A's about 3 times a week.
I have done the 3 month "wash out" and reintroduced specific foods, etc. and kept the daily food log over that period, writing down my body's reactions.
I am happy to eat all the other wonderful beneficials on my SWAMI. :)

You're actually using more soy than you think....Soy protein powder 3x a week and small amounts
of soymilk is a decent amount.  Ever try edamame?  How about tempeh?
