Some of you may remember when I first blogged about Dr. Peter D’Adamo’s first book, Eat Right for Your Type, which was published in 1996.
Well, unknown to me until today, he had written another diet book in 2007 redefining the type diet. The GenoType Diet goes into much greater detail about diet based on more genetic factors than just blood type.
The book walks you through each step to determine your geno type based on key physical characteristics. It was fun and something I’d never really thought about before but since your genes determine how you look, it makes sense that certain types would have the same characteristics.
For instance, one measurement is the length of your index finger compared to your ring finger. On my left hand, my index finger is longer but on my right hand, my ring finger is longer. That was cool to find out. That trait is also characteristic of the geno type that Dr. D’Adamo calls The Teacher.
As I was reading through the food list, I was so happy to see some foods that I could start eating again that I had missed very much on the Blood Type A diet. The GenoType diet is more in line with the good foods I crave. There are still a couple of my favorites on the bad food list that I love but I think I can live without fatty bacon and soda.
This was also a nice break from school books. My one on campus class is over for the quarter and I should be able to get the 3 online classes wrapped up either over the weekend or by Wednesday next week, at the latest. I cannot believe graduation is next Saturday. I’ll be so glad to get that degree, even if it is just an Associates right now.
I have talked to Wright State and I only have 14 or so classes to finish the Bachelors, depending on what classes will transfer in as electives in the Management program. I will transfer into the middle of my Junior year. It was so exciting and rewarding to know that I’ve done that much work at Sinclair.
Take care, friends and be the change you want to see!
