This part was started on Sunday night, if you can’t tell from the content.
So, I feel pretty crappy right now. I have felt OK all day, but I’m not doing so well at the moment. Basically, I am hanging in there for Survivor. I can’t stand football, and was horrified to find out that they still had 12+ minutes in only the 3rd quarter. Blech. That means that the rest could go on for HOURS.
I’ve been eating right on target, although a bit heavy on the starches today. I feel good because I have stuck to mostly bennie with some neutrals. It makes such a difference.
I’ve had a few people ask me how you find your secretor status. You have to do either a spit test or a blood test. Dr. D’Adamo feels that the spit test is more accurate. You can purchase the test from this site. Just go to the store and click on “home testing kits”.

OK – I’m gonna get into it, so if you don’t want to read about women’s “time of the month” stuff, here is where to stop reading.
What a major difference this month. For the first time in my entire life, I didn’t crave sugar. I did eat starches – probably 2x the recommended amounts, but ONLY bennies (Ezekiel/ Manna bread) and neutrals. I ate absolutely no avoids. The difference has blown my mind.
I usually have to eat chocolate the 3 days or so before I start my period: this month, nothing. I did eat some chocolate about 4 days before, but that wasn’t the real PMS that I usually get. In fact, I have very little PMS at all. I didn’t get ugly, I didn’t crave meat, I didn’t get sleepy, and I didn’t go sugar crazy. I am SO interested to see what happens next month. Adding in the neutral and beneficial starches, in the (upper) quantities allowed has truly changed everything for me. For the first time, I truly believe that I am going to get to my weight and stay there. For the first time in my entire life, I am not controlled by cravings and I don’t feel guilty or miserable about what I eat. I just stick to the program the best that I can, and everything is fine.
BTW, I wanted to put out to the women out there to check out this site:
I have one of these and I love it.
I’m gonna keep it a little short tonight. I did NOT get to the gym the past few days, and I want to get up and go tomorrow. I have to get a good night’s sleep in order to do that.
