Dear Dr. D'Adamo,
Please excuse my sending this to your e-mail address, but I have a very limited web-browser, and I just spent 30 minutes trying to post this question to your message board, without success.
I was intrigued by the section in your book where you mention that wheat and corn interfere with insulin metabolism in type O people. I also follow the zone diet recommended by Barry Sears, which is based on carefully controlling insulin levels in the body.
How exactly do the lectins in wheat and corn interfere with insulin? Do they tend to increase insulin resistance, and therefore lead to an increase in insulin levels in the body? If so, then Dr. Sears would suggest that there would be a wide range of negative effects, in addition to the problems with weight loss that you mention.
