Yes, thanks, I can deal with the vitamin issues because I was on a plant based diet for 4 years before the beginning of this year. I took B12 and D supplements.
The big problem I had was feeling like I was tied to combining legumes with various whole grains. Now I'm following, "Eat Right for Your Blood Type". So I'll be eating certain grains and certain legumes (in limited amounts) that are said to be compatible with my blood type (O). By eliminating those grains and legumes that are incompatible, I hope it will be an improvement and I may not need to be eating animal protein.
I'd be combining a "plant based diet" (as described in The China Study)with "Eat Right 4 Your Blood Type".
The object is to avoid getting cancer and hopefully alleviate overactive bladder. The bladder problem is somewhat better already.
Anyway, you're right about the calories. So it's a good thing I'll be able to eat some rice, barley and Ezekiel bread, among others. But not whole wheat. With that, olive oil, nuts and seeds, I hope to get the calories I need.
