I know that pork is an avoid food for Blood Tyoe A Non-Secretors, But is JUST the pork casing okay? I found this wonderful sausage that has all okay ingredients for me, but they use pork casings. Thanks, BGL
Hi, Bonnie! I'd say you can chance the pork casing. It's unlikely to contain much of any active substance that would harm you. If you like, you can remove the casing either before or after cooking it, so you're not eating that part. Best wishes! :-)
Hi Heidi, I have a question that has been bugging me for ages & i don't know the answer. I am an O type & have been doing the BTD for 4 weeks now.
My question is : If you have been on a diet before & cut your calories down to 1200 a day & then you want to try a different diet which might invole eating more, will your body adapt to more calories being consumed & burn them with out putting on weight ?
I use to do the Slimming World Plan & had mainly carbohydrates for a long time,I did loose weight using this at first but after a while it didn't matter how little i was eating i still pilled on the weight & i'm still trying to get it off. I have 20lbs to loose & i just can't seem to shift it.
I do 30 mins cardio 5 times a week & 3 Weight sessions a week but nothing has happened. Please help me !!!! Toni
Hello, Toni! Welcome!
This is why we don't suggest counting calories on this diet. Try to remove the very idea of 'calories' from your mind entirely. A type O can lose weight on 2400 meat & veg calories daily, whereas she'd gain weight on 1200 calories of grain daily. That's the key thing to remember. It's not how much you eat, it's what you eat, that makes all the difference.
In your situation, there was a grain-based diet used for some time. This means you may have significant insulin receptor damage from the lectins in those foods you consumed regularly.
It will speed your progress significantly if you eliminate grain and sugar from your diet for the next month. Fill up on vegetables, add judicious amounts of good fat, and get as much meat, fish and poultry as you need to feel comfortably filled. Throw portion sizes and calorie counting to the winds (and savor the freedom! ;-)) -- your appetite will naturally regulate itself, as it's just about impossible to overeat meat and fats.
Also, do the water thing ~ 1/2 ounce of water per pound you weigh, daily, with a pinch of sea salt and/or a squeeze of lemon in each quart.
Those 20 lbs will start fading away within a week, and I believe this simple approach will allow you to really enjoy your new way of life while dissipating excess weight effortlessly.
Try it! And do write again! :-D
