Many of you wanted to know what my dietary regiment is.
Breakfast: I take a nutritious smoothie. It's fast, easy, and filling. It energizes me through lunch time. Key ingredients are almonds, walnuts, flax seed, avocado, berries, raw milk, filtered water, coconut flakes, and a whole fruit. This smoothie is suitable for all blood types and all age groups.

Lunch and Dinner: Lunch is light and simple. It usually consists of a salad with some protein. The source of protein could be nuts, fish, chicken, or beef. Dinner is about the same as lunch, though I tend to take more soup and less protein, so it's lighter than lunch.
How do I decide what to take?
I use a 3-step approach in deciding what, and how much to take.
Blood Type Diet: I use the blood type diet as a guide on the general categories of food to take and to avoid. I find that the blood type diet works well most of the time and you don't have to be very straight.
For example, type O do well with more proteins, type A do well with more vegetables, type B are balanced omnivore, while type AB should have a mix diet in moderation. Click Here for detail discussion on blood type diet.
Food Choice Table: Next, I pick specific food out of my Food Choice Table. I am very strict with this. In vegetables, I try to avoid most tubers such as potato because of its high glycemic index. I avoid banana and watermelon because they are both high in sugar. I don't take fruit juices or peanuts, but I do take butter, lots of eggs, and legumes. My food choice table is applicable to all blood types.
For example, blood type O should take in more protein. I will choose legumes, nuts, deep water fish, organic eggs, and lamb. I would avoid peanuts, coastal fish, red meats, dairy and shellfish. The reasons are detailed in the food choice table.
Anti-aging Food Pyramid: As far as the ratio of each food relative to another food, their volume and frequency, I follow the Anti-aging Food Pyramid.
