    Hey you, what's a woo? :-) The BTD makes perfect sense. Why else would some people fail on a particular diet while others succeed? My roommate can't go a few days without beef. I'm nearly a vegetarian. Turns out her blood is type O (eat meat! eat meat!) and mine is type A (vegetarians rock). In the end, b, it's what works for you, yes?

    Woo = nonsense.

    I love chicken! But according to the "blood type diet" I am supposed to avoid it. For every single person that matches the type of food they are supposed to eat....there is at least one person that doesn't match.

    The fact that you and your friend "match" is total coincidence.

    Blood Type Diet! Never heard such total baloney (excuse the meat-related pun) I'm an A- blood type and eat any lean meat as part of my diet. Lost 11lbs in the last five weeks on a lowish carb higher protein regime, but eat almost everything...

    Just going to leave this here and tiptoe my type-A-meat-eating-self right outta here:

    In summary:
    If the Blood Type Diet intrigues you, consider this: The science is stacked behind traditional recommendations for healthy eating for weight loss -- not restrictions based on the type of your blood.

    B) It's all cool!

    Glad the diet is working for you, OP, but it's simply because you're eating fewer calories than you burn. If you actually like/want the things you've cut out, you can still have those as long as you keep your total intake below what your body uses in a day.

    I just looked up the lists for my blood type (AB+). I would be utterly miserable on that diet.

    AB- here and boy do I agree! The stupid thing about this idea is that in diverse populations blood type is basically random chance so genetic disposition to food sensitivities based on blood type wouldn't apply.

    If OP stands for Old(er) Person, then that's me!

    OP stands for original poster, or original post. It's a term that's been used in various discussion forums for as long as I can remember.

    You could create a group for BTD, and have the privacy of sharing your stories with your buds there.

    asthma does not go away either, the symptoms can and you can be symptom free especially if you have asthma that is triggered by allergies but asthma is a lung disease, its not curable(its treatable) and you can have a flare up at any time. They used to say you could outgrow it. thats an old myth.

    Yup, I saw a decent number of people wash out of basic training because their "childhood asthma" reared its ugly head.
