Hi I am a young woman, type B non-secretor, needing to loose weight. I am really not a great meat fan, especially the kinds recommended for B types, and I do find the amount very expensive in Denmark. I eat beef or veal 1-2 a week, fish 2-4 a month and sometimes turkey. Can I get my protein from dairies instead? I drink/eat 1/2 litre milk the days I eat meat and 1 litre the days without -- mainly skimmed milk or cottage cheese. I really need the protein to make me feel full. Hope to hear from you- thank you for your good work! A Danish fan ~ Iben
The beneficial cheeses on your dairy list, as well as yogurt and milk, can help you reach your weight loss goals by building muscle tissue. But it is worthwhile to establish a balance between your protein foods. If you prepare the meat in stews rather than eating it separately, could you use the same quantity to get a little most days of the week?
Can you find a good source of lamb or rabbit? Sometimes these are cheaper than beef and veal, and you might particularly enjoy the rabbit. Young lamb and rabbit both have rather delicate flavors.
You're doing a great job with this plan! Try to expand your meat choices a bit, and keep up with the dairy. Let me know how your progress goes! :-)
