Questions About The Diets
First off, thanks for publishing your blood-type based diet book. I have had extraordinary results. I admit I haven't read the entire book but I have attempted to find specific information on certain foods, with no luck. As a type B, I have eliminated some of my favorite foods from my diet: wheat, corn, chicken, tofu, avocadoes, tomatoes. Now, giving up wheat is a pain in the neck, but giving up avocadoes and tomatoes is a culinary disaster. What I'd like to know is, so to speak, the price expected to be paid for indulging in each of these (and other) forbidden foods?
The price to be paid depends on the relative health of the person in question. If you are healthy, it is not the avoidance of one food over another that is going to make much of a difference, but rather the aggregate of how closely you follow the precepts over an extended period of time.
I think a fair categorization of compliance would be something like this:
- Great compliance: 70-80 beneficials; 20-30% neutrals
- Good compliance: 60-70% beneficials; 10-20% neutrals
- Average compliance: 50-60% beneficials; 20-30% neutrals
Although some people have reported significant results with compliance levels even lower than average.
