Questions About The Diets



I'm a Type O neophyte to ER4YT. Noticed oat meal, oat flour and pepper in your recipes for Type Os but found those items on the "Avoid" list so I'm confused....


This was a typographic error, and a lack of communication between myself, Catherine and Dina the recipe dietician. In a state of health, type O's can use oats, which should be considered neutral: This is what Dina was proceeding on. However, if you are type O and have either an inflamatory condition of the digestive tract or joints (such as colitis or arthritis) or you are using ER4YT to lose weight, you should continue to avoid oats: This is what Catherine was proceeding with. Otherwise it is fine.

The Ask Dr. D'Adamo internet advice column ran from 1996 to 2009, at which time Dr. D'Adamo's teaching and programming responsibilities no longer allowed him to devote time and resources to directly answering visitor questions. However we've recently reorganized this treasure-trove of material and made it again available to his readership. He occasionally posts new entries. These are marked with a NEW tag.
