ok i bought the book and like what i could eat and made some changes.
but i was reading and they really dont have a clue what there talkin about. they say NO coconuts or oil. not just for o's but for ALL blood types. i know they are healthy because they are a whole fruit. if they were processed, then i can see why.
there were a couple other things that i cant think of right now. oh, then there recipies stink. there servings are way out of wack. there saying that 2-3 lbs of fish is like 3-4 servings or something. hope you dont eat vegtables with it because you will have some real problems eating that much at once.
does anyone know why coconut oil is bad? i have been avoiding it but i do like it. they way they speek in that book makes me think they really dont know what there talkin about. and kefir is bad for type O's so i hope none of you guys are eaing that poison.
I also thought the same thing, but yet I continue to use it.
My instincts tell me that some of the food lists in the book are not accurate. It's possible that they did NOT test the EVCO but tested refined CO instead, which is not good for anyone.
For me, I don't keep to it strictly, but as an 'O', the minute I cut out most grains, add some lean meat/liver (all organic is important) and oily fish plus add loads of green, leafy veges and olive oil, my body and skin start to look great. I feel more alert too.
If you would like more info. on status of foods, you can go to http://www.dadamo.com. Go under solutions (at top of screen) and under TypeBase, that is the most up-to-date food values. I know that this diet is alittle hard to stomach in the beginning, but it will get better. I have been following it for 5 years and have seen many improvements.
You are so wrong.....you do not have to have coconut oil....gee that is simple. It is a neutral and there are many other replacements. This diet has allowed me to stop limping around from swollen joints and lymph nodes.....so you need to trust the Dr.....he has fiqured out why half the world's human health is screwed up. Do you eat any recipes passed down from your great great grandmother? I am Hungarian and all those recipes were lost after world war 2 and this is the same for most of the peole in the USA. We have all lost our food roots and now they have been found!
This author has his name printed as "Dr" Peter D'Adamo on his book cover but he is not a doctor and does not have a doctoral degree. He's a "naturopath" which is a title requiring very little training compared with any college degree. I bought the book "Eat Right For Your Type", thought it sounded good and so I bought his smaller book "Food Beverage and Supplement" book for my blood type, to carry with me. Well, the lists in the supplement book do not match the "beneficial" and "avoid" foods in the main book!!! There are also discrepancies in the Eat Right for Your Type book and the Live Right for Your Type book. He'll tell a blood type to avoid something but then that very food will be an ingredient in a recipe for that blood type, or it'll be suggested as a remedy for a health condition for that blood type.
