Life is far too important to be taken seriously. –Oscar Wilde, 1882
This is an interesting and confusing topic. I think you're right, Popsie, that we need to find what suits us. Is anyone familiar with "Eat Right For Your Blood Type" - a book by D'Adamo? It's hard to do without the wheat - (for Type 0's) but I find the rest is easy enough to follow and corresponds well with an anti-inflammatory diet (no nightshades, etc.)According to him (regarding legumes) certain legumes are to be avoided, but others can be beneficial depending on your blood type. Alfalfa sprouts are also to be avoided for Type 0's.
There is a protocol for each of the blood types.
Lynwood - thanks for double checking on the legume thing. I'm hoping it doesn't apply across the board. I'm glad this subject came up.
thanks guys for all the replys. yea its an interesting topic. im very curious, and will for sure start tracking what i eat and see if certain things seem to affect me or not. i found a cool symptom chart to print out and be able to put around the house. its just a chart where u wite the times and dates of symptoms of a flare, but its something i need help keeping track of, just to keep my doctor informed of everytime im flaring, and then to help myself establish any patterns in what im doing or eating. i will post the link if im allowed to, can i?
ill post and then mods, if its not ok u can edit it? thank u! http://www.womenshealth.gov/faq/lupus_checklist.htm
