So now that you've read Eat Right For Your Type and are familiar with the basic theories behind the blood type diets, you need a list that you can grab and take with you on those grocery shopping trips or for those dinners out where you may find menu items that you can't quite remember as either Recommended, Neutral, or Avoid. This is one of those pocket references that was made to be convenient for these situations if you happen to be a type B like most of my family.(If you haven't read the abovementioned book first, you should. It explains in detail the hows and whys of eating according to one's blood type - O, A, B, or AB - instead of the dictates of popular trends. Foods are divided into three lists for each blood type: Highly Recommended (foods that have some great benefit or another and act almost as medicine in your system), Neutral (basics that are neither highly beneficial nor bad), or Avoid (foods that you should avoid, either because they have a bad effect on your blood type's metabolism, immune system, digestion, etc). But back to the review...)The format of this list book is divided into convenient chapters that each represent a food group, such as Ch.1, Meats and Poultry, Ch. 2, Seafood, Ch.3, Eggs and Dairy, Ch.4, Fats and Oils, and so on until we have categorized every type of common edible into 14 sections altogether. Each chapter also has a brief introductory essay explaining a few highlights of the lists that follow, for instance, why certain healthy veggies such as tomatoes ended up on the Avoid list for type Bs and why Pineapple is on the Highly Recommended list. Most of the selections are not explained in detail however, so the reader must take these recommendations on faith.
I purchased this book in conjunction with the book but, since this book ended up arriving first, I flipped through it a bit.THERE ARE MAJOR ISSUES WITH THIS BOOK. I'll go through the pros and cons via a list.Pros:Well organized. Items are listed by category (meats, produce, beans, grains, etc.), then according to whether the item is very beneficial, neutral, or to be avoided.It's pocket-sized, so you can take it with you when you go out to eat, etc.Cons:THE INFORMATION IS OFTEN CONTRADICTORY!Just flipping through it, I've found numerous areas where the same item is listed in more than one category (either listed as both beneficial AND unhealthy, or neutral and unhealthy, etc.) Some times, this is blatantly obvious, since the wording is exactly the same. It's like someone wasn't paying attention while they dragged and dropped the info in their Word file.Other times, it's less obvious. For example, I've had Celiac disease for a number of years (actually, not surprising, from what I now understand of B-type individuals). Thus, I am very keen to products that contain gluten, which is found in wheat, rye, barley, spelt, and can be found in trace amounts in oats processed in the US. Some of the inconsistencies in the grain categorization:Tells you to avoid ALL gluten products.Also tells you to avoid ALL wheat products.Then, calls Spelt "beneficial" (though, being an "ancestor" of modern wheat, IT CONTAINS GLUTEN!
