BTD Forums  /  The GenoType Diet  /  Celiac and Maize
Posted by: Tesla, Sunday, July 14, 2013, 9:56pm
Hello i have a doubt about the celiac. The people who suffer from celiac disease used mostly cereals such as maize and rice because it is the most affordable and easy to purchase in shops. The problem is that almost all the groups and genotypes sanquieos have corn as not recommended. How could a celiac patient consume up to maize by their condition? Because from what I have read the single problem of the maize is the increase in weight is not as toxic as other cereals.
All this knowing that there are other alternatives of cereals in herbalists, but that are infinitely more expensive and harder to achieve. I look forward to your responses, greetings from Spain.

Yes, it's very hard to find commercial gluten-free products that are free of corn (maize.) Many also contain potato flour or potato starch, which is also toxic for Os.

I don't eat a lot of grain products at all. My diet is mainly animal protein and veggies. Lots and lots of veggies. The grains I do eat are mainly cooked whole grains; usually rice or quinoa. I also eat rice cakes. I bake with rice flour and almond flour. I don't eat sandwiches at all.

Of course, individuals can decide for themselves how compliant they want or need to be. For example, my younger daughter (type O) strictly avoids wheat, but doesn't worry about corn, potatoes, or dairy when eating away from home. I, on the other hand, will get sick from even trace amounts of corn in anything. For a while I was buying pineapple juice with added vitamin C, and I felt sick (fatigue, muscle pain) until I figured out what was going on- I now only use juices without added vitamin C. Both wheat and corn are VERY toxic to my system; either one will make me sick for weeks after ingestion.

There will be some celiacs that become worse and lose much weight depending on the group sanuineo and genotype. It is not the same a 0, which is celiac aliementa protein-based that a celiac patient of another group or genotype which needs more grains and only get the rice ... since the other costs more it is not if it is a good idea. This is why I think that to the best in other groups and genotypes the corn would be more permissible.

Corn seems to be the only grain I can tolerate...usually. But then there is the genetically modified issue which may be why I can't tolerate all corn all the time.

I avoid corn, wheat, and potato.

Most products marketed as gluten free are not not acceptable to me.

For me that just means I eat other things than bread, pasta, and cereals.

I find it best to make products that would normally use the things I eat, rather than trying to convert the products that I can eat into something they would not normally be.

best to avoid what is a toxin for your type.....

GTD is not about weightloss, it is about health and leading an anti inflammatory lifestyle, thus resetting, preventing and healing health issues


the way you wish to follow the guidelines is entirely up to you

Other blood types can eat quinoa, millet, oats (certified gluten-free), buckwheat, etc, not just rice. Plus there are starchy vegetables and beans for those who need more carbs.

This isn't all about saving money and buying the cheapest possible foods. It's about selecting foods for optimal health.

Those blood types who can eat more grains and less meat can eat far more cheaply than Os can. For those seeking to avoid genetically modified foods, corn products need to be organic. From what I've seen, organic corn is about the same price as other grains. Buying whole grains is generally cheaper than buying such items as pasta and finely ground flour. To save money, avoid buying the more processed forms of grains. Grind it yourself in a coffee grinder, or do without flour products altogether.

Processed gluten-free foods, such as breads and cookies, are much more expensive than buying bags of quinoa and millet. Yes, rice is  readily available and cheaper than "exotic" grains, but you don't have to spend a fortune on gluten free, corn-free food.

Sweet potato, squash(calabaza), the right frijoles, arroz ect. are good choices

I would eat mainly fresh vegetables as they provide vitamins/minerals/fibre/antioxidants, with your fish or other protein source.  When you feel better, one serve of fresh fruit per day.  There is no need for maize or grains, as all nutrients can come from your protein sources, veggies, some nuts maybe and enough water every day.  The fibre in veg, fruit, nuts is enough and good fibre.  I'm not sure about organic corn for myself, but I do know some people eat organic blue corn chips for the easily absorbed selenium.  I try to get selenium from eggs and organic garlic! Best of luck.

The lectin in corn affects insulin control in all blood types except A, and even some of them are sensitive enough to a high lectin diet that corn should be left alone...  As you probably know, when the body doesn't control insulin properly weight gain is the most immediate indication, but diabetes is a longer term result.
