Dr. D's remark about oats also specified "no inflammatory problems." Look how large/long a book ER4YT is now, and imagine if all the refining details we've learned on this site were included! We're talking the OED!
I need to remember that most people who bought the book saw "diet" and thought "weight loss diet." Obesity is a pervasive condition, most particularly in the U.S., and it is a more serious one than many of us realize. If you read the first page of each blood type's diet, you will see a preponderance of "gain weight/lose weight" advice, so you shouldn't be surprised that the diet leans toward weight loss.
As with anything, each individual has to find his way within advice that had to be general to a certain extent in order to help the greatest number of people. I have found resources on this site, and been referred to others by folks here, which have allowed me to find the principles of my own ideal lifetime diet. The more I adhere to the habit of eating this way, the less I need to think about it and the more productive I am.
