This is very interesting. Is there a chart or something that says which foods, etc that each type should stay away from? I guess I'm wondering why we need to know which type we are. I've never heard of this before but would love to learn more about it.
Also, have you ever read the "Eating Right for your Blod Type" book? There is some interesting information about foods to avoid or incorporate in your diet. I'm not a complete believer in the book but I did take some good info out of it.[/b]
YES! I am a HUGE fan. Unfortunately, I am on an elimination diet right now for my ds so I haven't been following it, but once I'm done nursing I plan to throw myself into it. I'm a type A and do tend to gain weight when I eat meat. My dh can never understand how I can lose weight (and inches!) when I eat a ton of carbs. I love being a type A!
No dairy or corn products or byproducts. The dairy I can handle-not big on cows milk anyway, but the corn drives me Nothing with corn syrup, corn oil, cornstarch, corn protein, etc. You get the idea. It really limits what I can eat.
Now what? lol Should I be taking more calcium carbonate???

I never knew how many things corn was in till I started reading labels! I have bad IBS and I think its one of my triggers so I am now avoiding it. I cut out frozen food and alot of dairy and I am going trying to go organic. Now if I could stop being stressed I would be set lol
Woo! Welcome, Chloe! Going organic alone will make a huge difference. Josh is allergic to a lot of foods, but when the food is organically grown he has no trace of allergies. We grow a lot of our own food too, because we don't really trust what they're treating conventional food with these days. Who knows what they're doing, you know? Have you considered taking up yoga? I know, I know......quiet from the teacher. It really does help with stress, though. I'd at least carry around lavender oil. Does wonders.
