In Response To: Re: Type A looks like Pritikin Diet (Peter D'Adamo)

In the book, I am allowed 24 oz seafood a week,
recommended no meat, allowed 18oz chicken a week,
allowed 8oz soy cheese (is this what you mean by
Tofu ( I don't see any amounts of tofu anywhere).

This adds up to anout 43 blocks of protein in Zone
terms. I need 18*7=126 blocks of protein a week,
due to large amounts of exercise (riding bike
to work 12 miles each way).

Additionally, the soy products are high in fat
so when I have tofu, I don't get to eat any other
fats if I want to maintain the 40:30:30 ratios.

On the Zone mailing list, someone claimed that
you said the amount of protein for A people is
the same as O people (is this true?). Do
you specifically envisage a low protein diet
for As or is this just a side effect of the
intolerances we have.

I don't see how I can
get my 18*7=126gms protein a day without
getting huge amounts of carbos as well,
unless I break the rules.

To get 126 grams protein I would need 36-45oz
tofu a day!

The sample day looks very low protein.

In one of your other replies, you suggested
a test for whether food agrees with you
based on mixing blood and liquid from the food
- would this be suitable for me to try
chicken, and meat?
