foods for Type O

I am just learning about the blood type diet and wonder about certain foods that are on the Avoid list for Type O. The foods I wonder about most are Pork and olives. It seems like ripe olives that are cured in oil or wine should be ok. Also since pork is a meat why should Type O avoid it? Also I wonder about white potatoes - they are a root vegetable aren't they? So why shouldn't Type O eat white potatoes. As far as herbs - can you explain why Echinacea, Red Clover and St John's Wort are on the avoid list?
Please understand I am not in this for weight loss. I am overweight - but have much more concern with overcoming my fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, and general poor health. I am also dealing with pre-menapause.
I bought the Eat Right 4 Your Type book because I browsed the Type O section and found that many of the avoid foods are ones that I have already eliminated over the years (gluten, corn, soy) because they made me sicker. After I bought the book I found out that I am Type O - so it seems to fit. Now I am wondering about the details on the avoid lists. Different sites seem to have some differences in their avoid lists. Is there a way to test whether a particular food is really a negative for a specific person?
Thanks much for any info you can provide.
