As far as the blood type diet, I've read the book after a friend urged me to do so and I think the way it is written anyone will find things that fit just by matter of statistical chance. I don't think it is helpful or useful nor based in scientific research.
Sometimes self-experimentation (as systematic as possible, trying to isolate possible causes for probems one by one) is the best approach in the long run. For instance if someone has a problem with dairy find out what it is about dairy: the fat in it, the protein in it, the hormones in it, the fact that it is pasteurized rather than raw, the fact that it has lactose in it etc.
As far as meat, if you can tolerate several kinds well it's easy to avoid the ones that are not comfortable to eat. The grain-fed vs. pasture-fed issue is huge for me, while others may not notice a difference.

Interestingly enough, a quick google search indicates that both chicken AND pork are on the 'avoid' list for B types, while venison and bison (which I tolerate very well) are on the 'beneficial' list. Interesting. I'll just leave it at that.

Houndlover, you could be onto something, I seem to tolerate dark chicken meat better than a breast (feels like lead in my stomach), I have no problem with bison or venison. Leaner cuts of pork can leave me feeling a bit off too though. I have to admit, I dont really believe in the blood type thing, but it does say that chicken for B types can cause issues. Maybe its just a coincidence....

I like houndlover's test. that sounds like it would give you more information about what's really bothering you.

Just bought some kefir and made a smoothie with it. I feel better already! I will see if its just a need for more probiotics.

Get yourself a supplement probiotic, there are many very good ones on the market at all health stores.

I doubt that the fat content is the issue, although if you eat very large portions excessive protein could be a problem with chicken breast.
You could try two things to rule out the fat/protein percentage issue:
Try to eat some fatty chicken (dark meat with skin on) and also eat some bison (buffalo) which is like beef except very lean or even choose an extremely lean cut of beef and see how your body reacts to each.
I suspect a chicken allergy/sensitivity is more likely. It could also be that you will tolerate chicken and pork from pasture-fed animals much better than from mass-produced, grain-fed animals.

Red meat stays with me longer than white and we prefer dark meat to white with poultry.

Interesting but sorry to hear!

I have no problem white v red (none processed, though, just straight meat).

I eat about as much fish as I do others, though. As long as I'm eating veg for enzymes, I'm okay. I take magnesium for 'movement' if things get clogged cos I wasn't eating enough veg. I find fruit helps a LOT but I don't really like it. I'll make an effort when I'm feeling like I need it:)

I've noticed since switching to paleo that my stomach seems to digest red meat better than white. Whenever I eat poultry or pork, my tummy always feels really heavy and sometimes feels like my ol' ibs days; a sucker punch to the stomach. Any clues as to what this means? Should I be eating some probiotic foods? I should note that I can digest fish no problem. Maybe white meat is too lean?
