Anyone on the Eat Right for Your Type plan?


I have started the plan Eat Right for Your Blood Type plan and am curious if there are any other type "O" out there who would like to form a group. I am really focusing on reaching optimal health, not with losing weight, although I expect some changes will come naturally. I am in one group with another type "O" who is on the plan but would love a whole group who post daily, share recipes and encourage each other! We are committed to trying this for the month of January for sure. I personally am planning to give it 3 months and see how I feel.

Please give some feedback if you are into it and I'll start the group if there is enough interest!

ooh, you could count me in!!! I'm even an O!! I'd started a group, body by BTD, but kind of flaked out because no one else was here. (Personally, I'm all for group support, but I do fine without it)

I've been doing it since september, and absolutely LOVE it!!

Cool! I'd be very inerested to hear what has been great for you on the BTD! I'd like to start the group as a private group to keep it really focused, but don't know how to do that except collect email addresses? Anybody have a suggestion?

someone can correct me, but if you create the group with you and the person you know, I can then join, and you can either make it private then, or wait for another member, or whatever. I'm not about to post me email addy on this community board...

I have a couple of friends who swear by that program they even tested me at their house one night ( she is a nurse) because I wasn't sure what blood type I was... They said they felt great and I think they have been doing that program for at least 2 years. as a way of life.

It definitely becomes a way of life- you feel so much better that you just dive into it, always trying to do it stricter or more comprehensively. There's none of this yo-yoing of back and forth, no guilt trips, no deprivation, no calorie counting- it's great. And yes, you lose wieght, but your health usually improves dramatically too.

I swear by it! :)

New Group has formed!

I'm the OP and have now formed the group, it is public, but I've described it in very specific terms, in hopes that only type O's on the plan will join. There did not seem to be another way to do it. The group is called Eat for Your Type O and we are two so far....

...seeking active posters who are into sharing insight, experiences and recipes!

Is there a free resource to learn more about this diet? I'm a bit skeptical, but I am interested in learning more. BTW, I think I'm an A type.

Add comment Won't tell you everything, but can get you started. Many people are skeptical until they try it :) My mom brought the diet home, and I was skeptical til I tried it.

General guidelines for A's- avoid red meat, carbonated beverages, dairy. Soy, coffee, and grains are great for your digestion. Activities such as yoga or pilates work well for you- intense cardio may leave you feeling stressed because of cortisol/adrenaline reactions. My best friend is an A, and she's trying the diet because she tried some things out and they've worked great. She even discovered she loves soy milk :)

you obviously have neither read the books, nor the scientific supports.

Nor do you have any idea how the diet works. I haven't cut out any food groups, and I certainly have cut calories. I probably have a higher calorie intake than half the people here.

Why don't you try learning about something first hand, instead of spewing forth third hand knowledge and trying to sound intelligent. (because you fail miserably at it!!)

Agree: No Science At All, nutritionally

On the other hand, if it works for you personally and doesn't result in malnutrition, it's as good as anything else. I think this diet is probably really helpful to people who (a) have an emotional need for a huge, transforming change in their life, because it does require a major change in foods for most people, and (b) want or need a lot of structure in a diet program.
