I have gone back and forth on the Blood Type Diet thing. I'm currently leaning toward thinking there's something to it. Why? Because over the last year I have discovered allergies/intolerances to a lot of foods, all of which are no-nos for Type Os. I'm a Type O.
I loved coconut with all my heart, but I absolutely react to it. Maybe always did, but couldn't tell because I was reacting to other things. I don't *want* to believe the Blood Type thing, because it also says avocados are a no-no, and I love them. But, ack, that sounds familiar. Every time I stomp my foot and say "I just can't live without ____" I find out that yes, I can, and I'd better.
If I talk dh into TTC again, I just may stick to the Type O plan... in case. One of the things that the 'wrong' lectins are said to do in the blood is cause clots. A very teeny clot killed my last baby. And I wonder if perhaps lectin-induced clots are the cause for a lot of stillbirths and miscarriages, and when the mama is tested for a clotting disorder, nothing shows up.
Maybe the reason why the Blood Type Diet doesn't seem to apply to some is that there's some level of leaky gut required in order for the lectins to become a problem. I don't know.
