I´ve looked around the web for a while to find a good and easy recipe for one of this breads. But every recipe I find seams to be different. And some of them contains ingredients whish are Avoid for our group. Does some know a good recipe for us 0-types?
HI ALL!! I am new to this forum. My hubby and I just started with the eat 4 your type diet, and so far, so good. We are both type 'O', so it makes it a bit easier. We are on day 3 and feel pretty good. I do have one thing to say about the Ezekiel Bread. I bought some today, and noticed it said on the ingredients "organic sprouted wheat". However, wheat is in the avoid list, as well as sprouted wheat. Can anyone explain this? My hubby has always been allergic to wheat, (sinus problems), and we felt that this diet plan may be the answer. I have ALOT of weight to lose, and so far the people I have spoken to have all lost weight, one losing 78 lbs.!!! So I am hopeing that someone out there will be able to clarify the wheat thing, and I hope you all can give me some advice, especially on losing weight. Has anyone out there lost a whack of weight on this diet? If you have, I would love to hear about your success!
~~LOVE, LIVE AND LAUGH!~~
'Ezekiel bread is flourless, seeded, and sprouted grain bread. The gluten lectins (principally found in the seed coatings) are destroyed in the sprouting process. Ezekiel bread is a live food with many beneficial enzymes left intact. Please also note that other commercially produced sprouted breads often contain sprouted wheat and other glutenous flours to make their bread. Read the ingredient labels carefully. Ezekiel bread can usually be found in the frozen section of your local health food store.'

I have read the ingredients carefully.
But it says that type o is NOT to have sprouted wheat, and it contains sprouted wheat. I just wondered why they would say to eat one thing, when it contains ingredients that you are not to have.
I have purchased it anyway. And it tastes good, one slice does it.
We do have to have something to have with homemade soup, after all!
Thank you again for you quick response.
Hello. I just barely registered with this forum, and found a question I can answer! Story very short: I am now associated with a 52 year old gentleman who contracted a terminal disease at age 15 (Lupus). He struggled with diet to age 41 at which time after 10 years of pure vegan diet with improvements in the beginning, still left him ready to die with severe symptoms of Lupus and the worst Sinusitis imaginable (at age 41). He could find no help anywhere, so on a whim, since he had recently moved into a citrus grove area, he decided to eat only citrus. He finished all 14 of his citrus tree's fruit in about 6 months, and ended up about 85% cured!! After that, he experimented and studied until finding the "perfect" diet for which there seems to be no exact information about anywhere. The diet is based on entirely eliminating non-amino acid protein foods. In other words, eat the type of protein (not the type of foods) eaten by Elephants, Giraffes, etc. in the wild. Some sprouted breads such as the orange wrapper Ezekiel fit into this diet well as you will read more about below.
As it turns out, most foods in our diet have in them whole-protein molecules. These whole-proteins are very complex and very large. Our bodies cannot use protein unless it is in the amino acid form. So to use the amino acids in whole protein, our digestive system has to perform a sort of slave labor on them by releasing numerous enzymes, acids, and the like to try to break them down. By doing so, all kinds of putrifications and acids and byproducts and poisons are created which build up in the body and wreak havoc on our whole system over time. Additionally, the digestive process never finishes but maybe 5% (maybe more) of the protein conversion to amino acids. Hence you end up with 90% plus proteins in your body that have not been broken down which the body cannot use. Result: You may be eating lots of protein, but you are getting relatively little of it in the end. Amino acid protein foods, on the other hand, are easily used by the body to nearly 100% of what is eaten with relatively simple digestive routines.
The problem with this "NO whole-protein" diet is that it is so simple (restrictive) that few are willing to live by it. To get the body completely conditioned to it, it takes a period of time of 100% strictness until withdrawal pains and symptoms are over (yes, protein diets are addictive). It basically requires eating no meats, fish, etc; no eggs; no diary, cheese, yogurt, etc; and (and that's a big AND), NO NUTS, GRAINS, or SEEDS! Sounds drastic, but it works. At age 52 now, Tom is in the "picture" of health. From age 15 he averaged getting sick at least once each month until age 41. After his drastic diet change, he has never been sick since! Not once in 11 years! And that's amazing considering he hardly even has an immune system (his body let's him know very quickly if he ever deviates more than a meal or two off the diet).
Now, the good news: When you sprout a grain or seed, that very sophisticated process shatters all the protein molecules in the grain, and converts them into their amino acid components. So, with the Ezekiel bread and other similar breads, you are eating 100% amino acid protein which get nearly all used by the body. And, there is no allergic reaction since there are no whole-proteins causing body wrenching digestive processes. Carefully read the label, though. Many "sprouted grain" breads have gluten and non-sprouted grains in them - or seeds. I have only found 3 out of about 10 sprouted breads that fit the bill. The orange wrapper Ezekiel, and a clear wrapper raisin bread, and one other clear wrapper bread. The freshest of this type of breads as well as the cheapest I have found at Trader Joes ($2.09 per loaf).
One other important note: All diets, including this one, should include mostly water for beverage (about 1/2 of your weight in ounces per day - see http://www.watercure.com), and plenty of salt (need about 1/2 to 1 teaspoon per day).
I started on this diet at about age 55, have come down from 178 pounds to 155 pounds (I am 5' 8" tall), have eliminated tiredness beyond normal sleep patterns, have eliminated allergies (water did most of that), and have not gotten sick now in about 3 years. And I am not living it perfectly yet - only about 66% of my diet. Tom's firm belief is that protein is the main cause of disease and early death (early meaning dying by about age 90 or 100).
Hi Great post, can you share more information...who is the person, how did they cure their Lupus, after eating only fruit. What is the diet that your trying to emulate...Very interested to know...thanks
