Hi, has anyone experimented with the blood type diet and if so what are your thoughts on it. I'm embarking on it myself (as is my hubby) and was curious. Also, what thoughts do any of y'all have in regards to the blood type diet with or without food combining (or food combining w/o blood type diet)???

Have you listened to Teresa's Personal Profile cd? It is very informative and gives a pretty balanced view on blood type. For example, I am an A, yet I have a lot of O characteristics. Teresa says your parents types can also affect you, as well as ethnic heritage, so you need to take it ALL into consideration.
I would highly recommend getting hold of those and listening! I don't personally follow the blood type diet, but her info make lots of sense to me!

Well, I don't do blood type thing, but I watch loosely combining, because for example, raw cakes(I eat big portion of my food raw), which combine nuts with fruit, do not agree with me. I still eat it occasionally, like in raw food potlucks, but in this case I take digestive enzymes first, and that helps a lot. I hear nightshades are not that great for many people, but they don't seem to create problems for me. But I don't eat many tomatoes anyway.

I am still reading it and mulling it over. There are so many things that it says I am suppose to do well on that I don't like and the things I like I am not supposed to eat. :dontknow:
Still reading and comtemplating.

I was not disciplined on the BTD--too hard for someone who hates to cook as it is to accommodate three different types in the household (I'm a B, dh and dd are A, and ds is O). I am still conscious of it and try to avoid most "bad" foods, especially wheat--something BTD taught me was causing my digestive issues.
I have a friend who follows it 100% with great success. She is an AB and has never really eaten a varied diet, so she is fine with the limitations. Like any eating regimen, you have to try not to look at it as what you can't have. She lost weight, eliminated hives and hayfever, her eyesight has improved and her energy increased. When she cut off the tip of her finger in an accident, her doctor didn't think the reattachment would heal well. She focused on her healing foods and the doctor was shocked at her recovery. Her husband, an O, lost weight and lowered his cholesterol. He is not 100%, but pretty close. There are people who swear by it and those who don't see much change--give it a month and see what you think. There is also the Genotype Diet--also from Dr. D'Adamo--which takes heritage as well as blood type into account. I never really got into that one.
If you go on the forums on BTD, I know there are threads about food combining. Much like this site, the people on there are extremely helpful and informed! In fact, that is where I learned about T-Tapp!

My friends and I have been looking up Blood type diet since 2005. We don't really keep strictly to it but we eliminated all those red flag food mentioned in the first book. Me and my good friend are AB while some are As and Bs and Os. We have tested the theory and found that it bears some truth. You have to try by trial and errors to see which forbidden food you can't really eat.
In my case it was chicken and corn, the food I have been eating since young. I had experienced migraines for as long as I can remembered and it got so bad that once I almost fainted with the pain. It was about this time I discovered blood type diet and experimented with the food. When I took away chicken and corn, my migraine slowly disappeared. When I introduce chicken and corn back to the diet, the migraine will come back in different degree of pain depending on how much and how frequent those food were eaten. My friend with same blood type had different experience. The moment she eat chicken or oranges, she gets lots of phlegm.
To find out, you have to eliminate those forbidden food one by one to see what effect you will get. Some of my friends did not experience any symptoms but some do. Another who is of O blood type, gets hives when she take potatoes and nuts.
Try the diet with an open mind. In my case I know chicken and corn are the food I must avoid.
