Comment on A with anaemia...
I am an A and I used to get turned away from blood donors with low iron levels. Since I went on BTD (3 years) - no problem!!! but not eating any red meat (well a bit of lamb sometimes) How would conventional docs explain that!?
Keep up the good work, love the colimn K
Thanks, K! Nice work there, and if you're an A nonsecretor, lamb is neutral for you! I appreciate the happy report! :-)
Hi, I am O+ and have been following the diet since Jan. I have the restless leg thing off and on and was hoping the diet would take care of it. But it's back for the last 3 or 4 days. Do you have any advice? Help! Pam.
Greetings, Pam! Welcome!!
I'd like to help! In order to do so, could you tell me what your exercise schedule is like? and whether you do any form of meditation or yoga? Write again, and I'll do my best to help you! :-)
Cyperus Esculentus (Tiger Nut) Could you kindly advise me on the nutritional value of the tiger nut or can you refer me to a reliable source? I eat it a lot as a roughage/fibre but I would like to know its other value and what it combines well with and also if it could be harmful in anyway. I would appreciate any information. Regards, Addai
Hello, Addai ~ We have no rating for tiger nut, so it properly may be considered an "unknown" and used as a "neutral" by healthy, average-weight people.
Tiger nut is actually a grass tuber. It sounds like an interesting plant, and I'd never heard of it before. Apparently it's one of the 'weeds' traded for food, animal feed and construction materials in Niger. For a time, there was a program in Florida, USA raising tiger nut for hog feed. Wonder what it tastes like? ;-)
Anyway, thank you for bringing it to my attention. I did a little Net reading, and it appears that a Catalan research group is looking for a manufacturer for their beverage product made from tiger nut, quinoa extract and alpha-amylase type enzymes. The maltodextrin component resulting from that process may put it in an 'avoid' category for virtually all BTD'ers, but the idea is provocative.
Best wishes, and welcome! do write again! :-)
OOOOOOOOOO HEIDI -- I AM SOOOOOOOOOO EXCITED!!! Thanks, first of all, for the response yesterday.
WHAT a difference a day makes.....I answered the phone this morning (it was a lady with an Avon order - yep, I sell Avon in my "spare" LOL time) and during the conversation - don't ask me why -- she asked if I would be interested in buying ORGANIC GROUND BEEF!!! Apparently, the farmer is in a little town just an hour from us!! and, it gets better, she and another couple of ladies are trying to get a CO-OP going in our town!! INTERESTED, I nearly gave her the whole Avon product line free - LOL!!
Anyway, I am going to see her today and find out if we will be able to get other cuts of beef as well. Apparently one of the stores here is already selling the farmer's organic eggs - breakfast will be pure!! YES!! can you see I'm excited -
OH, and guess what? THIS will make everyone green eyed - the price? I think she must have made a mistake -- $1.35 a lb. (and THAT's Canadian dollars). I think it is probably right though, because this is a small town with 45% retired people and the rest make very low wages, so the price would have to be really reasonable to be able to sell it. I feel great even though I am fighting off another cold!!
Even Ron is happy about it (hubby) - he (sort of) follows the diet now too! Well gotta go - YAHOOOOOOOO will keep you posted. love sue P.S. - thanks for the website on Magnesium - tried that one too about 3 years ago, sorry to say it didn't work. 5HTP and Catechol also failed for me. sue (O-neg)
Hey there! See, organic beef was only one town away, and clean eggs are coming almost straight to your door. Rejoice! :-D
That price is very nice, and I congratulate you on drawing that wonderful knowledge to yourself. HOO-rah!
Yeah, you know what? I think we talked about that magnesium/depression site three years ago, because it looked so familiar when I came upon it. Probably because of you!
Keep exercising that great energy, and enjoy your newfound farmer. ;-) blessings, dear!
