    • I usually consider this kind of stuff hooey. I thought, what the heck, I’ll give this a try. At least it doesn’t call for any strange stuff I wouldn’t consider to be food. Since menopause I’ve noticed I’m much more sensitive to what I’m eating. Some foods seem to trigger hot flashes, some trigger heart palpitations, some make me feel bloated. So I read the foods that would be considered optimal for my blood type and combined that with some of the guidelines I read in Dr. Christianne Northrup’s book - “The Wisdom of Menopause” and I have to admit I feel better. I even managed to lose 2 pounds on our cruise.

      Has anyone every tried this?

    • I bought the book and read it and decided the logic was a bit out there for me.  And for my blood type I almost had to be a vegan and a very limited one at that.  I lasted about three days and then I had to have some meat and potatoes.

    • I’m a blood type A and, luckily, all of the foods that they say are optimal for me are foods I like. I prefer fish to meat, I don’t think I’ve met a vegetable I didn’t like (well, maybe okra) and I tend to eat a lot of fruit. So, their suggestions appealed to me.

      My husband is a type O and, coincidentally, he is a big meat eater. Meat is suggested for his type. The other night I grilled a steak for him and a piece of fish for myself and put both of them on top of a big salad for our dinner. It was great.

    • I got the book years ago and looked up my type A food list.  I really didn’t like a majority of the things on the list and I knew I would’t be able to stick to it.  Right now I’m doing, and pretty much sticking to ‘The 3 Season Diet‘.  You eat certain foods according to the seasons.  It’s almost the same as Ayurvedic diet and the 3 doshas.

    • I am also blood type A and have read the bk.  ‘Eat right for your type’ by dr. Peter j. D‘adamo.  Good book on the subject.   I tried it and I believe it actually works very well and has merit.  But I have a great desire for protein and eat a lot of it which isn’t recommended for those with type A blood.ohhhh
