Bob - allow my poor memory to misquote Dr. D'Adamo...

In Response To: I agree with Steve's and ^Heidi's^ posts above, but... (Bob L (O-))
I believe Dr. D'Adamo said, during a book signing/lecture for Eat Right For Your Type (standing room only and I was definitely STANDING), each food status is based on information as complex as a *symphony*. A symphony! If this is true, to only list one reason for each food would be a misrepresentation.
Pick EGGS for instance! Here's some thoughts on my very layman's levels regarding egg placement for Type A's (these are not necessarily correct):
1) animal protein
2) packed with nutrition (zinc, and many others)
3) high fat/cholesterol
4) not easily digested
5) easier animal protein to digest than meat
Notice how the whites have a different rating than the yolks. Do the positives outweigh the negatives? Do the negatives outweigh the positives? What makes this better or worse than the alternative foods available for this blood type/secretor/subtype/etc? Now - once it is decided - how often should one consume this food?
Dr. D'Adamo, even if he were not a doctor, is one very talented and special person who has cultivated a great deal of respect and support from his peers and family. In my opinion, he is *very* creative and intuitive. Perhaps, when we are given a "reason", it is just a mere sampling of what really went into the status of the food item. Why else would snails be a highly beneficial for Type A's? Luckily I started eating them when I was around 9 yrs old.
Best wishes to you!
