I understand that carnivorous Type As and vegetarian Type Os will struggle with the diet. My encouragement is to read Live Right For Your Type first so that you actually get the science part of this. Then ask the many infertile women who have conceived after following his diet how "nuts" it is.
I first used this book when I was trying to conceive daughter #2. After the birth of dauchter #1, we had moved from CA to the east coast, and over time, my diet had morphed into many non-healthy choices for my Type A family. After several months of no results, I read this and changed my diet to follow the Type A plan more closely. In just a few weeks, we were pregnant.
My next door neighbor was also trying to conceive her 1st baby at this time. After two miscarriages, I lent her this book - and to her surprise, she read that the combination of blood types between her and her husband was one that was prone to miscarriages. Imagine the relief of knowing that there was a real reason for this, not "something she had done" or wasn't doing. She birthed her first baby 10 months after making some changes to her diet based on this.
Another friend was having terrible morning sickness, and following the traditional advice of "experts" was actually amaking her feel worse, not better. Once she found her type in here, she was able to curb the sickness and get through her first trimester by EATING and actually absorbing the nutrients her baby and body needed.
Admittedly, the contents of this book can appear odd to those not familiar with the concept, and I've had many "western" medicine doctors pooh-pooh this all. But the fact is, no one can explain the results we've had in any "traditional" manner. I'm here buying copy #5 tonight!
I have always eaten pretty healthy, but as I hit my thirties my digestive system started to have lots of problems. As someone not interested in dieting, I first dismissed the blood type diet when my Mom began pushing it on me. But as my digestive problems got worse, I was willing to try anything to avoid taking a bunch of medicine. Loosely following the blood type diet radically changed my quality of life. I got pregnant just a couple of months later and followed it through pregnancy, especially in late pregnancy. I ate the foods recommended in preparation for labor, and the nurses and doctors were shocked at how well and quickly my body recovered. Though I agree with a number of the critiques of this book, I have now bought copies for several friends who are planning families soon.
