In Response To: Re: Type A looks like Pritikin Diet (Tim Josling)

Dear Tim,
I don't think that employing the zone principles to their fullest degree is going to work well if you are type A. They are in their fullest form, best suited to type O. It is a large amount of protein and as a type A you will eventually pay the price in terms of degenerative diseases which result from the fact that type A's generally lack stomach acid and don't break concentrated proteins down effectively. Without the stomach acid levels of a type O, a lot of this animal protein is going to be converted to toxins, which eventually are going to have their effect on the immune system, liver and kidneys.

On the other hand moderate amounts of, fish and poultry can be used selectively and the remainder filled in with other vegetable sources of protein, such as tofu.

With regards to the Zone Board post, no, I never said that type A's need the equivalent of the protein levels recommended for type O.
