The Type A Diet Equals What It Equals

In Response To: Type A diet does not have to equal high carb (JimB(A+))

Good points.

We must try to avoid simplistic decriptions of the diet, such as "O= high meat" or "A= high carb" simply because our paradigm is bigger and better than that. It is WHAT you eat that ER is all about, not the CATEGORY of what you eat. The fault of other diets is that they lump all foods together into classes and deal with them as such. We look at THE FOOD ITSELF. Remember, lectins are species specific AND blood type specific. The beneficals may add up to a higher or lower percentage of carbs in one type or another, but it is the food itself that makes the determination. If the food lectin does not react with that blood type, it will not mimick insulin, nor provoke a hyper insulin response, whether it is high carb or not. High carb or low carb is less important than if the diet is LOW LECTIN or not. No other theory functions in this manner, or looks at individual variations and reactions with this type of objectivity.
