    Your thoughts on Blood type

    I have noticed that a number of paleo foods still give me a problem. I'm blood type O. I noticed that the foods that are causing me issues are on the blood type o avoid list.

    Example of the foods that cause inflammation for me and are on the avoid list:
    Pork
    eggs
    dairy
    avocado
    coconut in all forms
    cauliflower
    cucumber
    yucca
    citrus fruits
    plantain


    When I first starting following the paleo diet I did an elimination diet of sorts because I was so ill. I have lots of food allergies, stomache problems, etc...
    I looked into the blood type diet and followed some of the recommendations. I would drink pineapple juice in small amounts because Peter D'Adamo suggested it was helpful in releasing water retention. It worked.

    What are your thoughts?

    I eat all those things apart from not liking avocado and not knowing what yucca and plantain are. I am pretty sure my blood type is O as well, although I am not completely sure.

    The 'blood-type diet' was brought up on a podcast I just listened to involving Chris Kresser, Robb Wolf and Matt Lalonde. They laughed at the idea. Take that for what it's worth.

    I've followed D'Adamo's work from the beginning and it is the original mainstream paleo diet on the market, period. HOWEVER, there are Os on that diet who still defend grains. The diet is about 80-90% correct. I personally have genotyped myself as an O Hunter and use the Hunter food list as one of my main sources of info. But I combine what I've learned from bt with PB laws like walk instead of cardio. I like Jack Kruse's views on aging and carbs etc.

    People can laugh all they want but Peter D'Adamo is right about a lot of things- blood type explains why most As don't truly thrive on a high protein meat based diet. I have an A friend who has never thrived on my food.

    i'm type O and while i can't take a ton of dairy (gut issues), i feel better with some dairy. i also can tolerate only a few eggs. other than that, i enjoy most other items on the list and have absolutely no issues when i eat them. i personally think the blood type diet is bunk, as it has no true scientific foundation.

    It is actually totally scientific and has a ton of anecdotal evidence too.

    The whole blood type diet thing has been talked about and debunked ad nauseum here. I am sure if you search you can find threads. Assuming you care to read them of course.

    Couldn't care less. I've followed it from the beginning and have many years of personal experience and observations. Mark says he doesn't know why dairy doesn't work for some people. But Peter D'Adamo with his genotype system can tell you.

    Cool. Glad it is working for you. I look at everything as an n=1 experiment. All about finding what works for you. That is why I do not buy into the blood type deal - everyone is not the same just because of their blood type.

    It's bunk. Listen to Chris Kresser's podcast on it.
