Thanks for the session! I guess I'm going to have to throw out D'Adamo's Bloodtype/Genotype books now. According to him, NO type of meat is beneficial for me, and I should be eating mostly veggies and beans.
I'm the same as you, Mrs Peel (according to D'Adamo), and before we started down the road of low carbs and more meat in the diet, I was basically a low fat vegetarian with bits of chicken and fish added. Now I have meat three times a day, lots and lots of good animal fats, and I've reduced my carbs drastically. I'm not down to 72 grams daily yet, but as someone mentioned recently, it's best to proceed slowly so the body can adjust. Anyway, I just feel so much better on this diet that it makes me wonder what exactly D'Adamo was on about! The more that I eat meat, the more I want to eat it, and I've been eating more real red meat in addition to bacon and pork mince - lamb is delicious!
Same here. I used to occasionally eat meat but now it is my main food source. I notice particularly that if I eat plenty of fat, it keeps me for hours without even thinking of food. Carbohydrates on the other hand,used to only last a short while.
On a side note I was at a workplace training today and we were discussing poor behaviour in children. I mentioned that there are other triggers for poor behaviour, i.e. dietary (as we know), and I backed this up with a description of a study carried out by Great Ormond Street Children's hospital in London a few years ago. Even that was too much for people to hear. It seemed they were all shaking their heads as they swigged their coca-colas! It amazes me that people think they can eat whatever they like simply because it tastes 'good' and not have any consequences!!
I have been finding the same. Often the subject of diet comes up at work, in some of my classes. I have, so to say, been testing the waters. I wouldn't say that it is absolutely pointless, as some people do seem to ponder, but the vast majority is completely, and I should repeat, completely immersed within the lies they have been fed since they were born.
Come to think of it, how could they not? Thinking differently about food, and the way we think of it here, would not only challenge all of their beliefs about food, but also the health system in general. Their trust in doctors would be shattered to pieces. It is a very delicate subject I find, and it needs to be approached veeery gradually so as to not overwhelm someone who's been hearing the exact opposite for all his/her life.
