(clap)(drool)Quoted from PCUK-Positiveperhaps Turkey would be a good start. good for all types etc. and in small amounts.
Does anyone have any suggestions on how to help these individuals slowly integrate more complex meats into their diet? I was thinking broth would be a good start. But I'd love to hear some ideas. Thanks!

Quoted Textvegetarian Type O clients to begin eating meat
Are you referring to type O people?Quoted from aussielady582some people, esp as they age are not able to digest, let alone assimilate nutrients from cooked or even raw animal flesh, or eggs, or even dairy, if ones' liver, gall bladder, pancreas, or bowel/colon is weak or toxic.
Are they type O people? Of what age? A healthy O type vegatarian's health may crash at a later age. I've experienced this personally.The purpose of BTD/GTD/SWAMI is to build a good health for life.Quoted from aussielady582There are many very healthy people on vegetarian and vegan diets
Quoted from ruthiegirlI'd be very cautious in how you approach them. I'm assuming that these type O vegetarians are adults, and you can't "make them" do anything they don't want to do. What you have to do is educate them so they'll want to make changes on their own.
For the person who's a vegetarian "just because I've been one for years" you need to teach about individuality. Point out that vegetarianism is very healthy for As, so whoever thought vegetarian diets were healthy were probably speaking/writing from personal experience. Teach how Os need animal protein and fats to thrive. Once there's a compelling reason to eat meat, and "no real reason" not to, the conversion should be easy. That's when you can introduce the helpful hints others have shared about specific ways to re-introduce meat into the diet.
Those who "were raised vegan and that's all they know" or "don't like the idea of eating other living creatures" will be much harder to convince. It may help to point out the food chain; how cats and dogs and owls eat other animals to survive, and as humans we're meant to do that as well. It may help to point out that something always dies when we eat- a spinach plant is very much alive until we chop it up and put it into a salad. Carrots are literally pulled up by the roots for our consumption. Who's to judge that a cow is "more alive" than a field of beans?
In the end, you can only educate and encourage. If they're not ready to make changes, they won't.
Quoted from kitariI remember reading about the Dalai Lama following his physicians’ instructions, he reluctantly returned to eating meat and regained his health.
and sometimes people will be willing to eat fish before beef or poultry and cod is very good for O's.
The slaughter and bloodshed is a big problem for some, I reckon especially in youth.Quoted from ruthiegirlWho's to judge that a cow is "more alive" than a field of beans?
Quoted from marjorie
Yes, I remember reading this as well. Fish is a good alternative, IMO. Cod is amazing and just go gentle with them.

Quoted from balletomaneI am wondering, where does all the excess acid go if a Type O individual is not consuming the complex proteins? I was under the impression from the information I have read, that a characteristic of Type O is the enormous amount of stomach acid they produce. I did not think that fish nor plant proteins were sufficient to absorb the amount of stomach acid made.
I know where the excess stomach acid goes! It turns into a nightmare for us in terms of acid reflux. I suffered from it when I became a vegan. Tried everything but didn't work. Then I started eating meat according to Dr. D's instructions in his book and cured the problem in a week or two
Does anyone believe that an over acidic body would create reactions in skin health, such as acne, eczema or even psoriasis?
Or even attribute to major illnesses such as cancer?
Quoted from KimonoKat
Type O's have high stomach acidity, because they naturally produce more IAP, but that doesn't necessarily translate into other tissues of the body becoming overly acidic.
Acne and eczema and psoriasis are, imho, auto immune reactions to bad food choices (wheat, white potatoes, dairy, etc.) for one's type, esp. the ones I listed for Type O.
Dr. D writes in the BTD Encyclopedia that Fibromyalgia, diagnosed early in Type O's, can often be reversed just by eliminating wheat.
Sharing with the best of intentions.
Quoted TextBeen experiencing a high degree of chronic fatigue
Quoted from O plus
I also agree with the above post that mentioned a reduced stomach acidity in O's as we age. I can't do red meat anymore. Could be all the franken stuff they do with it. I really miss it. I eat mostly bene fish & rice.
