Lake Michigan is so cool! Coastie bro (who may become an AB BTD convert soon…) and I drove from Albany to Chicago area in one straight shot…14 hours in the car…ouch! We’re still a bit “hungover” from the drive, but got a good night’s sleep last night. I’ll be here with him for the next week or so and am loving some of the private time whilst he is on duty. I realized that I had not been alone-alone for about five weeks. Sheesh…I may be people-oriented and social by nature, but goodness knows that I need my ME time too!! Tee hee…
Okay, enough personal chatter. Below are answers to questions that have been sent to the comments section. Hope you are all doing well and be sure to write back with progress, news, insights, rambling…whatever! I love reading your mail.
Pat H: Thank you for the compliments! I don’t think that you’re a nut!! I agree with you about being cautious when adding herbal supplements into your diet. To be honest, I’ve not added anything but food yet and have lost weight, felt wonderful and been healthy just the same. Definitely run your plans by your doc…more than one opinion is always wise. I never got a recipe for pineapple muffins, but was told that one can substitute pineapples in any fruit muffin recipe (being careful of extra liquid), and they’ll be yummy! Best of luck to you, healthy eating and congrats on staying so spry at 70…may you have many wonderful decades to come!
Ashley N: I’m not sure exactly what seems extreme to you about the ER4YT books, but they are nice in that there are food list and serving size recommendations. My favorite remains the Cook Right 4 Your Type book b/c it has the lists and recipes. If you don’t want to buy anything, go to the library, or scroll down in this site to the typebase programs. Hit the Recipe one and hit index. There you can scroll through all the recipes and pick out the AB ones that look yummy to you. From that you’ll get an idea of what the bennies and avoids are.
Dan B. from BC, Canada: Cravings for sweets are my biggest downfall!! I am a sugar nut!! I have found however, that the more compliant I am with bennies and neutrals, the fewer cravings that I have. Your yogi is a wise individual as serving sizes are critical. We need to eat enough to be fueled, but not so much as to put us into a coma, no? As far as brain-food, you’ll just have to play around with the bennies and see which ones make your body the happiest. My body loves ahi and mahi mahi tuna, collard greens, garlic, parsley, rice, lemons, cherries and plums. Good luck with your recovery (be careful!!) and be well!
Take care everybodee and be well…
