I've recently had some interest in following the guidelines suggested by the Blood Type Diet ([[I]Eat Right For Your Type and [I]Live Right For Your Type) and thought others on the Board might be similarly interested if we had a Topic dealing specifically with this Diet and how it might help us to return to health more quickly. My interest came from reading a number of posts by Sarah (Seeking Wholeness), from a few exchanges with her concerning questions I had about the Diet, and from reading Live Right, which she has recommended, on a number of occasions, when responding to a post.

I did a quick search of the Board to find out how much interest has already been shown. To date there have been 7 posters using 7 forums to post 23 messages. Most references are brief, almost asides, before going on to discuss the central concerns of the poster. About half of the posts are by Sarah, not surprisingly, because of her experience with it and her belief that it has helped her, and her belief--I hope I'm not putting words in her mouth that she would rather keep out--that it might be a big help in dealing with celiac disease.

I am going to do the Diet, while maintaing my interests in a few others, partly because I feel there is someone on this board I can go to with my questions when
necessary. And there may be others with this same interest who have yet not posted, or who have, who would be in a position to offer advice and guidance on the Diet, if only in sharing their experiences with us. (I understand of course that we are responsible for whatever actions we take and not the persons we've asked for advice, though I have more confidence in the posters here than the doctors I've had over many years. In fact, I've benefited from most of the posts I've read. Even topics that were initially of no interest to me turned out to be of interest. It's gotten to the point where I have to read everything that's posted in order not to feel I might be missing something I shouldn't. Still haven't found an ideal way of doing this.)

This has been a rather long winded explanation of why I think this new topic is necessary. If not necessary, it will quickly become apparent, I think, and the moderators can take the appropriate action.

In the meantime, I hope all those who are interested would respond. Just saying that you are interested would be enough. Even if not interested, if you think it would be a waste of time to explore what to you is a "wacky" idea, than that too would also be welcomed. --Aldo

Also:

Not too long ago while talking to the manager at my locat Outback Steakhouse about their gluten-free menu he informed me of some of his health problems and recommended that I get the book "Eat Right For Your Blood Type" he said it had been very helpful to him.

At this point with the "lingering" symptoms I continue to experience after being gluten-free for over 4 months I would love to learn more about this and would be a supporter of this topic. :)

Just my 2 cents.....

Even before discovering about Celiac, I have had friends who did very well this diet, primarily for weight issues, but they also felt good on it. Needless to say, I am wondering also how beneficial it would be for us. Until I went gluten free, I was so messed up that I couldn't manage to stick to any specific diet, my food cravings were so strong and I frankly, was a slave to them. I know now that my body was trying desperately to save itself and get what it needed nutritionally, but now I am in more control so I wonder...

When I am able, I will try it along with the Carb Addicts diet, which is another one that I believe has merit. The two could even work together.

So, there is my 2 cents, if we keep this up we might just end up with a whole dollar!

My nutritionist specializes in Celiac Disease and Cook Right 4 Your Type is the first book she recommended I buy. Get rid of the wheat of course, but she said this is the way to optimum health.

How do I find out my blood type? Is there a home kit I can send for or do I have to see a doctor?

I got one at the health food store, it was much like the one I remember using in high school biology class. I can't remember how much it was, around $5-$8 dollars I believe.

Lisa S., If you can't find a blood typing kit at your local health food store, you can order one here, at the webstore associated with the Blood Type Diet website.

Aldo, you are correct that I do believe that the Blood Type Diet can be a tremendous help to individuals who are seeking better health, especially those who are affected by chronic medical conditions. I have seen other diets that I believe have value, but this is the lifestyle plan that I believe delivers the most payoff for the effort invested.

I hope everyone is doing well!
