I'm looking online to find the specifics of the right for your type diet, so I (hopefully) won't have to buy the book. Does anyone know where I can find it?

Go to d'adamo.com and it will give you plenty of selections to choose from. However, I found trying to adhere to the BTD without at least the type specific handbook "Food, Beverage and Supplement Lists" was next to impossible. The book is $6.00 and can be found in most large book stores, and some WalMart stores.

Good luck!

what all is included in that book? Is it just a guide of "essential" things I need? Sorry for all the questions< i'm just gettin started.... I wanna make sure I'm doing it right.

I found online that type O is as such:

Type O typesshould basically stick to a high protein diet (including red meat), low carbs, and enriched with fruits and vegetables. They should limit the intake of wheat germ,whole wheat products, corn, and avoid dairy products and most nuts.

Type O types are commonly affected with hypothyroidism, high stomach acid (leading to ulcers), and thinner blood with greater resistance to blood clotting.


Kinda sucks for a vegetarian, but... I still eat fish & beans...and a lot of the veggie burgers & stuff have a lot of protien, so I guess I'll be ok...

I just HAD to comment on this!

Ninja-Cat, Lynn2 is my mom and her and my sister are following this Blood Type thing, I'm doing a low carb diet...anyways, What cracked me up reading this is here YOU are a vegetarian that should eat red meat and my mom is a type A that should eat vegetarian and right now could take down a side of beef on the side of the road, given the chance! This just cracked me up when I read this! Talk about life not being fair!

I'd give you some advice, but since I'm not following this diet, i really don't have much to say, HOWEVER, type O's and low-carbers have a LOT in common. You might want to check out the recipes for Atkins and South Beach diets because they'll take out the grains and high carbs stuff us O's aren't supposed to have, but give you some good higher protein alternatives...might get you some new recipes to try!

Good Luck!!!

I would also suggest getting the supplemental O Type book ...it's only a couple bucks and it's so much easier to look up stuff rather than the internet....however the internet is a great way to get started. I'm also an O and thankfully love cow. I have learned via reading about this and via my nutritionist that leafy greens are a must (chard, spinach, romaine---stay away from iceburg) and that wheat is a heck no! Dairy is more of a should stay away from but I've noticed that a little cheese added to something isn't gonna kill me. I'm still somewhat new at this and due to medication can't lose the weight but I do notice a difference in the way I feel if I cheat and eat corn or wheat. If you are a vegetarian you will probably do fine...as long as you find a way to get the protein as in fish or something.

You can find almost all the info you need online just by searching.

I say I'm following it, but only kinda sorta. My blood type is B (probably the easiest plan to live with) which recommends for me to quit eating chicken and pork - I'm a flexitarian anyway (always have been) so I don't eat a lot of meat in the first place. That was easy enough. Plus, a lot of the foods that were on my avoid list were foods I'm allergic to, but just never stopped eating. So I stopped eating them. Am I truly losing weight because of the diet or because I quit eating foods I'm allergic to? Don't know, don't care. I'm losing weight and I only have hives every once in a while now instead of 24/7. I'm happy.
