|As the year ends, we have had a moment to reflect on the wonderful whirlwind that has been 2011 and the opening of D’Adamo Personalized Nutrition in Williamsburg. To say that we are grateful for the reception we’ve gotten in New York is an understatement. We are thrilled to be bringing Dr. D’Adamo’s work to the population of New York—9 million strong!—who are crying out for natural healthcare that is sane and speaks not only to their bodies but also their hearts and souls.|
Opening parties in mid-September were full of people celebrating our arrival
on the fair shores of Brooklyn. In mid-November, Dr. D’Adamo did
a public talk about the ins and outs of the GenoType Diet that was completely
sold out, his most successful speaking event ever. Be sure to listen
to the audio clip below from that lecture in which Dr. D’Adamo talks
about specifics of the Geno Type Diet.
Also in this issue of DPN Store News, you’ll read about Dr. D’Adamo’s latest formulation Trehalose Complex, which is excellent for supporting cognitive function and memory. When January arrives, we all promise to get back to our health and fitness goals—and that includes making the right choices when it comes to snacks and meals. See below for tips on kicking the holiday sugar habit, as well as weight loss recipes to help get you back on track.
Our first Women’s Support Group will meet on the evening of Thursday, January 12. Led by Dr. Maura Henninger, it will be a time to bring questions, concerns, and challenges about the Blood Type and GenoType diets as well as to share the joys of living this life. Because, in the end, the abundance of life is not about gifts given or material things acquired, but about sharing our experiences with others and benefiting from the support and love we get from each other. We have been blessed by being part of the DPN community and look forward to a year of spreading the rewards of great health to our community in Brooklyn and beyond. Click to download flyer.

|Imagine that you are the owner of a small factory that makes replacement
windows. Normally, your ordering department does a pretty good job of things
and the supply of the constituent parts necessary to make a decent replacement
window (one assumes these to be things like glass, vinyl, aluminum, hardware,
etc.) arrive punctually and in sufficient amounts to allow you to make
the maximum number of windows with the minimum amount of wastage.
When Tony Campbell first came into the D'Adamo Personalized Nutrition store in Williamsburg, I was convinced that a professional athlete had strolled in. I tried determine if he was a basketball player (no, too short), a football player (maybe a running back?) or a baseball player (this was my best guess). This guy had about zero percent body fat, a sleek, shaved head and was wearing black workout gear that highlighted some serious muscle. I greeted him and his angelic-looking young daughter and Tony explained to me that he was a convert to the diet after some years of looking for the right way to eat. Not a pro athlete at all, Tony owns and runs a car detailing business in the neighborhood. “How do you stay in such good shape?” I blurted. Tony’s answer made me smile: “Roller skating.”
first visit to the D'Adamo Personalized Nutrition store, Tony has sent us many
a client. In
fact, he delivered our very first customer. At his nearby office, he tells
us, he has set up piles of information about the Blood Type and GenoType Diets
and often the first question he asks his clients (after taking care of their
cars) is: What’s
your blood type? He offers them a card to the D'Adamo Personalized Nutrition
store and, often, he blood types people on the spot. He keeps a picture
of his copy of Eat
Right for Your Type on his phone and shows it to people while
advising them on the ins and outs of the D’Adamo approach.
Tony has one of the humblest, most open demeanors of anyone I’ve ever met and his genuine interest in people’s health is boundless. “Hello, and God bless you,” he greets each person he meets. On a recent day, he came in to speak to me for this article, and there was a young woman in the store vacillating on whether to buy a few supplements. Tony immediately took over as salesman and told her of his own experience with curing his digestive ailments with a combination of Gastro-D Complex and Intrinsa. The girl paid rapt attention to everything he said and ended up making the purchase. This is not an uncommon occurrence when Tony is around. I often joke that we should hire him and he laughs and says he has his own business to run.
A native of North Carolina and an O-positive Hunter, Tony, himself, began the diet two years ago when his good friend, who he calls Mr. Harry, was cured of his osteoarthritis after starting to eat right for his type. Tony was amazed and followed his own blood type recommendations and was excited by the increase in his energy level. He immediately put his own mother—also an O—on the diet and her arthritis also vanished. At her annual check-up, he says, the doctor couldn’t believe this turnaround and exclaimed at how she had seemingly reversed the aging process.
Now, Tony and his mom often eat together, sharing Type O-specific feasts that include a lot of collard greens, sweet potatoes, oxtail, beef stew, plums, walnuts, and bananas. He also swears by his juices: guava, cherry, mango, and pineapple—sometimes all in the same glass. “We’re from the South and we like to eat. But my mom and I eat the same things over and over, we don’t mess with adding new stuff, really, because we know what works. When my mom travels I tell her to just stick to the plan,” he says. His occasional treat? Pamela’s gluten free, wheat free cookies.
After seeing such astonishing results, Tony went on a mission to spread the gospel, as he sees it, of the Blood Type Diet. “When you really try to help people, which is what I do, people come clean about what they’re eating and it’s then I can do my work,” Tony explains.
The stories Tony has about people he’s helped by turning them on to the Blood Type Diet are seemingly endless. He tells me of his friend’s mother who hadn’t left the house in ten years because of diabetes. After he delivered a care package of the book and the right foods for her, she was up and outside after three months. People often stop him at the gym (no wonder!) and ask him what he’s doing. “I tell people you can exercise a lot and if the wrong fuel is in the car, you’ll fall down,” he says. One such individual was a guy who was borderline diabetic and Type O. Tony gave him the diet and one month later, he had dropped 20 pounds and the diabetes was gone. “I tell people working out is half of the work, but you’re missing out if you’re not eating according to your blood type,” Tony says."
Looking at Tony’s physique and endlessly cheerful manner, I wondered what was his secret? There must be more to it than roller skating, right? He told me he does calisthenics, light weight lifting and tae kwon do. Occasionally he does a round of Gastro-D Complex and Intrinsa if his digestive issues kick up, but otherwise, the diet keeps him well-tuned. “What’s so great about the diet is that you get so much energy, and it cleans your colon, kidney, liver and lungs. The biggest and best change for me was the big burst of energy and my bowel movements were amazing,” he laughs. That he’s 55 is mind-blowing.
Tony sees himself as blessed, and, as a religious man, thanks God every day for the gifts that have been bestowed upon him. “God has given me a lot and so my faith plays into my health, certainly. Whatever good information I get, it’s only useful if I pass it on and bless someone else with it. That’s what I’ve learned. Dr. D’Adamo is also blessed to have a mind like he does to synthesize this information and I’ve never seen the diet fail. He has saved lives. And if I didn’t help people with the knowledge that I’ve learned, it’d be on my conscience. It’s the least I can do. “ Amen to that.
I am ashamed to say that during the holiday season I become addicted to sugar – a handful of chocolate candies after lunch, a cookie (or two…or three) after dinner. It starts small around Halloween and blossoms into a full blown addiction by Christmas. It’s easy to become addicted to sugar, but a tough habit to break, here are a few tips that can keep the sugar cravings away for good.

|Following the Blood Type Diet is a challenge, especially for families with more than one blood type. Keeping kosher is another challenge all by itself. Both restrict some food choices and can be more expensive. Combining the two may seem impossible- but I’ve been doing just that for years, and on a tight budget.|
