blood type and diet : LUSENET : Country Style Homesteading : One Thread

read an article,, about blood types and diets. Certain blood types dont agree with certain foods and such,, can cause weight gain,, health issues and such. Anyone else read anythign about this,,or is it just bunk from a health food store?

Our Dr. is a rather,,, shall we say progressive,,,, kind of guy. He gave us a copy of this diet and the lists of foods we should and shouldn't eat. It wasn't too bad but there are just some things I won't give up. Since my husband and I were different blood types, it was looking pretty difficult to do. I kind of keep it in the back of my mind when preparing meals.

Stan, there is a book titled something like "Eat For Your Blood Type". Some people swear by it. Maybe there's a website with basic info?

Maybe this is what I need to check into, I get dizzy and weak and shaky sometimes. I've had my blood sugar checked twice and it was normal. Maybe what I eat is reacting to my blood type. Let me know if any of you find more info on this. Thanks!

Cowgirl - Eat Right for Your Type by Peter J. D'Adamo search on books by D'Adamo lists other similar books too. He also has one called Live Right for Your Type

Your symptoms sound like foods you're sensitive to - maybe an allergy? This book has helped me understand some things about me and my loved ones.

Good luck and God Bless

Thanks Michaela, I was thinking along the lines of a food allergy, but sometimes when I get these weak spells, I haven't eaten anything for at least an hour or two. I know that white wheat products can make me feel awful. I'll check out the book you mentioned. Thanks so much for the help!!

cowgirlone, You might want to check out Sugarbusters. It teaches you to eat to keep your blood sugar levels even as much as possible. I have felt great ever since I have been eating this way.

Dian, I'll check into that too, thanks! I do know that I feel better if I have several small snacks during the day, instead of regular big meals. When I had my blood sugar level checked, I had to fast for about 10 hours before the tests were run. That just meant not eating or drinking after midnight the night before the test. I'm wondering if fasting during the day when I'm more active is different than fasting while sleeping. I'm sure willing to try anything! Stan, I have ordered the "Eat For Your Blood Type" book. I'll let you know if it does me any good. Thanks again everybody for your help!!

Cowgirl, Have you considered you might be hypoglycemic? We thought DH had diabetes, due to the jitters you're talking about. Come to find out, he's hypoglycemic, and is mostly under control now. Do a search on hypoglycemia, maybe? Smiles! Linda
