Has anyone ever read or tried Dr. Adamo's " eat Right for Your Blood type? I've had this book for years and I just recently noticed that moost of the foods related to my blood type correspond to those that are benficial and those that are not. He also has a website http://www.dadamo.com/typebase4/receipes that cooresponds to foods you should eat for your blood type. Give it a look over you may find something useful.

I owned that book about ten years ago...

If you look through all the types, you might notice that he tells everyone to eat more fruits and vegetables and avoid processed foods. IMO, that's the key. Nobody should be eating lots of Twinkies!! I don't know how much of a difference it makes to eat more meat, less meat, more seafood and less red meat, certain types of vegetables and fruit, etc... I don't see anything miraculous in his suggestions.

IMHO, ERFYBT is baseless (except for the part about eating more healthful foods). As was pointed out years ago, if 5 million people read and follow this diet, it is, of course going to be right on for a certain percentage. Voila!!! It works -- for those people!!! Never mind that it's completely off base for a majority. IOW, if tell 100 people to stop dairy and they'll feel better, odds say that, I don't know, five will feel better. To those five I'm a genius.

Personally, I am of the 'don't knock it until you've tried it' kind of school.

I actually rooted out my books a few weeks back and have been looking through it again. I never really got into it the first time round, but I think that like a lot of these diets there are elements of truth in them all even if no one has it all right all the time!

It is interesting that some groups should not be having not only wheat and dairy but also things like soya and corn. What is it that those who are gluten-intolerant often also react to? Dairy, soy and corn.

Hmmm. Would be interesting to know what Blood Group and secretor status they are just out of interest.

I thought I was an AB but managed to find my records from my first pregnancy to discover I am a B. Haven't a clue on the Secretor status.

Interestingly, being on the SCD has meant that I have already cut out the vast majority of 'avoid' foods for my type so perhaps that in itself may have helped my recovery. I still have a few things that are SCD legal but BTD avoids so may try and tweak the diet to accommodate that and see what happens.

Knowing that any given diet works for some people and doesn't work for others, this concept held some appeal to me. However, when I read the book, the explanation (different blood types evolving in different parts of the world) didn't seem right to me although I admit I have no background to evaluate that hypothesis.

I didn't see the original article but recently read (AARP maybe??) where he responded to a negative article about his book. His defense was basically "tell that to the people who lost weight on my diet". The response to the the response was that any diet that tells you to remove a segment of your normal diet is going to generate some success stories but that isn't sufficient proof for it being sound science.

My opinion is that almost all of these fad diets work when they happen to sync up with what a person can stick with and fail when it doesn't match. In other words, any fad diet will help some people lose weight and not work for most other people. It really has little to do with the merits of the diet, just what you can live with.

    • And this from Consumer Reports: http://www.consumerreports.org/cro/magazine/2012/11/arsenic-in-your-food/index.htm Rice aside, stop giving your kids apple juice too as it can contain high levels of arsenic too!  Eat real apples -- not juice.  
    • If I am in a bar and it is super busy, I ask for a "to go" cup.  Why?  If a dishwasher is not being used (or demand is overwhelming it), bartenders are cleaning all the glasses the old fashioned way ( sinks, wash and rinse with disinfectant).  Good for killing bacteria I suppose, but maybe not for removing gluten traces.   No bar is going to slow down drink orders ($$$$$)  to wait for clean glasses from the dishwasher!   Is this all true?  I can not say.  I am just speaking from experience when I was barmaid 30 years ago before there were dedicated bar dishwashers.   http://www.servicethatsells.com/blog/how-to-clean-a-beer-glass/ Even if this is "all in my head", I feel better clutching my "to go" cup and can relax.  😊
    • Check out this page and the advice on rice prep: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/articles/2F1MDzyW55pg97Tdpp7gqLN/should-i-be-concerned-about-arsenic-in-my-rice  
    • Hi Rachel and welcome I think you've found the single best site on the web for help and advice. Hope it's of use to you. I tested negative for celiac so no referral. My experience with NHS however suggests it could be worth phoning your Gastro's office and asking the admin staff there to check on this. Things get overlooked... I would avoid anything with those warnings on. It's a pain in the arse because, for example, it recently appeared on a brand of nuts I like. However having some experience of production and marketing environments that warning will only be going on the pack if someone in the company thinks there's a chance of contamination. There's always other products to choose from so I don't take the chance.  Walkers crisps have given me a reaction, yes even the sodding ready salted ones  It's something to do with their production processes. I think Gary Lineker may dance through the factory each week spreading handfuls of flour for good luck. Whatever, I now avoid them.  My energy levels improved over a few months after the diet. It took longer the second time after my challenge. I was still noticing improvements / weird resolutions of odd symptoms up to 9 months to a year later... Lots of good advice here: All the best!

    • Ah.... Settles back, dons funny hat, smokes pipe, plays violin, injects heroin etc... I think you need to treat yourself as your own science experiment. If you're ok at home with all of the drinks then you can almost certainly rule out alcohol intolerance and thank your bodies burgeoning super coeliac powers of gluten detection for the reaction. Clearly your powers have grown in the past five years young jedi... In which case maybe there's a drink you can order which would reduce this risk, maybe asking for the bottle and a clean glass, forgoing ice, straws etc, anything to simplify matters and reduce the number of contaminant variables.  One thing I'd avoid would be 'mixers' from the shared line. Not because there's gluten filled drinks going through them, typically its just coke, lemonade and soda water, but because the nozzle sometimes dips into the drink that's being filled. Paranoid? Maybe, but I avoid them now and pay the extra for a bottle.  A word on glasses. Most bars have a dedicated glass washer and they're good, to a point. I've worked behind a bar in the past and the washers are only on for a very short time, they can run up to 35 times an hour... I've seen lipstick on glasses from them and whilst the chances of contamination are probably slight... Now if you're out for a night at different places, it will be very hard to work out where its happening. So my suggestion is to go out to one bar only and pick a decent one. Speak to a bartender or manager, explain to them just what a special snowflake you are   and get one definitely clean glass at the outset then keep it for the evening and just get it refilled. Pick one drink only and stick to it. I'd suggest wine as maybe its easier on the stomach than the bubbly prosecco and you can get the little bottles without any chance of contamination but that may be nonsense See what happens... If you're ok, then you have an answer. You've become more sensitive and your reacting to trace gluten. *removes funny hat, discards pipe, hides syringe...
