In Response To: Thanks Verna! One Question (Michele (type 0))
Hi! U may have noticed that I'm not Verna, but that never stopped me from venturing an opinion before, and I was just thinking about this exact thing last night, and here's my thought:
People new to the diet should read ER4YT first. ER4YT explains in very clear, easily understandable language, the WHY of the blood type theory. WHY is our blood type a factor in what we put into our bodies? What is blood type? What antigens react in what ways to each other and to antigens in food? Etc. I feel that ER4YT is the "primer" that people should read because, if they are like me, they want to know WHY they should follow this diet before they actually choose to follow it.
That said, LR4YT must be given to the person simultaneously because the food lists in ER4YT are now slightly outdated, and the lists in LR4YT are not only updated but much more detailed and expanded. Tell them to read ER4YT and then read their section of LR4YT and follow the lists in LR4YT. They can then read the rest of LR4YT at their leisure, as it goes into depth with prescriptive ideas for many health challenges and takes the diet to the next level as far as minimizing our weaknesses and maximizing our strengths.
So, what I will do when people are interested is get them BOTH books and tell them, read ER4YT cover to cover first. To me, this is and remains the classic introduction to the WHYs of the theory. It is the basis and foundation for understanding the whole thing. Follow the lists in LR4YT and read the rest only after ER4YT.
