Starting “eat right for your type “ O

After having gastric surgery back in the 90’s and losing over a 150 but never learning proper nutrition I’ve been struggling ever since. While I have not gain all back it’s just a matter of time. I’m a frequent flier at weight watchers I’ve done Keto I know the rules of clean eating front and back but because of the gastric surgery what would work for some doesn’t work for me. Thus this was suggested because it plays in with my body make up 🤨we’ll see . It make a lot of sense and I know which foods are my triggers and these are listed as my avoids. But is anyone else using this out in the community?

    Why oh why were our ancestors a million years ago not told about this easy solution? By now we would have no obesity anywhere in the world...

    Since you have had surgery and may have things to work around that Joe and Jane Average don't have, I would suggest seeing a nutritionist or dietitian to find a way to get your nutrients in a caloric deficit and avoid such issues as gastric dumping, vomiting, etc.

    This, with one proviso - see a registered dietitian and not a nutritionist. the first is a recognized and diploma'd professional and the other...

    :laugh:

    I'd change "how it works" to "by making you vomit due to the vileness."

    Although panned as pseudoscience, from what I recall from reading a review of that book, type O's should be following a low carb. but not ketoish way of eating. Which is what is prescribed to post WLS patients anyway, isn't it?

    Ew, really? I'm O+. No, thank you. I tried Atkins in the 90's, made it three days, got super *kitten*y to the point my hubby threw a cookie to me and ordered me to eat it.

    If I want to stay married, no (debunked) blood type diet for me!

    The better question is why kids are not taught such simple, vital information in schools.

    I'm blood type A, and that diet wants me to eat high carb & little or no meat. I actually eat eat the opposite - a lower carb with lots of meat, and it works well for me.

    My blood type is AB -- and I have that book, I had many "ah ha" moments reading it. For instance, it explains why I could never lose weight on Atkins, too much meat. Blood Type AB's should not eat chicken, beef, etc. Most seafood is okay. Also, always hated orange juice, AB's should avoid orange juice like the plaque.
