Someone recently suggested this approach and mentioned that there is material, possibly a book, on the subject (eating for your blood type). Any thoughts on this in regards to how Atkins might fit in to this?
I think there may be something to it simply because of how the diet works or doesn't work for so many people. For me, my body acts like it was meant for Atkins. Not only do I lose weight, but my cholesterol readings, liver readings, and other lab data all falls into place on Atkins. Even doing those crummy "low fat" diets never had good effects on my lab work and I even had to go on cholesterol meds while doing them.
However, when you here the stories of people who have had serious issues, some very serious, related to low carb dieting, it just seems that body types, genetics, and maybe even blood types could play a role in whether this diet will be your cure-all or your demise. I anxiously await debate on this.

Well, all I know is I've been trying some failing diets here lately. One was my "Banana Pudding" diet. That was a failure, alhtough somewhat pleasurable. Then came my "Coke Float with BlueBell Ice Cream" diet. That was a tastebud delight, but a weight loss failure. Geez.

Hi Darinwerner! WELCOME!!
I think I actually have that book you are referring to. My Chiropractor referred it to me and I think it is called "Eating for your Blood Type" or some thing... hold on... checking on that....
OK. Seems like there are a few books on the matter. Here's one by Peter J. D'Adamo & Catherine Whitney: "Eat Right 4 Your Type: The Individualized Diet Solution to Staying Healthy, Living Longer & Acheiving Your Ideal Weight"
I did read most of the book my chiropractor recommended and a lot of the things they talked about seemed to make sense. Some blood types did require more proteins/less carbs than others. I think it is worth the read.
Basically, what I have learned over time is that there is no real "diet" that will fix everyone's weight. Learning to balance your eating to your lifestyle, health and metabolism is an on going process. One of the hardest things to do is to LISTEN to your body and be aware of what certain foods are doing. This is tough because we can get caught up in life and grab crappy foods, then we CRAVE crappy foods and it just goes into a vicious circle....
I know Comet is a perfect example. When she chooses to keep certain foods in her diet while limiting certain foods it helps her manage her health. I think this is true for most of us. We are taught that we NEED certain foods for whatever reasons the dairy, meat, advertising, fast food associations have declared and we buy into it. It's kinda hard to break out of that mentality and choose the foods that make us feel better physically.
BTW, there are NO BAD FOODS but there are better choices. I do not believe that anyone should completely eliminate any one thing just because they believe it is a bad food. If you happen to consume some foods that are not the best choice, it's ok.... you can move on and make better choices the next time.
I think I have rambled on enough.... I know I have brought nothing conclusive to the table.... but this is a good subject!!
