Type O : Part II

 
OILS AND FATS
Type Os respond well to oils. They can be an important source of nutrition and an aid to elimination. You will increase their value in your system if you limit your use to the mono-unsaturated varieties, such as olive oil and linseed oil. These oils have positive effects on the heart and arteries even help to reduce blood cholesterol.

HIGHLY BENEFICIAL
NEUTRAL
AVOID
Linseed (flaxseed) oil
Olive oil
Rapessed (Canola) oil
Cod liver oil
Sesame oil
Corn oil
Cottonseed oil
Groundnut oil
Safflower oil


NUTS AND SEEDS
Are not essential in the diet, and should be eaten selectively, as they are high in fat. Anyone try to lose weight should avoid them. Since nuts can sometimes cause digestive problems, they must be chewed thoroughly, or used to make nut butters, which are easier to digest. This is especially important for anyone with the colon problems that are more frequently experienced by Type Os.

BEANS AND PULSES
not encouraged coz it contains lectins that deposit in the muscle tissues and make them less acidic. Type Os perform well best when their muscle tissues are slightly more acidic, as this acidity allows Type Os to burn fat more efficiently. This is not to be confused with the acid/alkaline reaction that occurs in the stomach. In that case, the few highly beneficial beans are exceptions. They actually promote the strengthening of digestive tract and promote healing of ulcerations – a Type O problem because of their high levels of stomach acid. Even so, eat dried beans in moderation, as an occasional side dish.
