And both is from the healthfoodshop.

hey it s fine with me!!! )
as long as you don t have a weight problem, I guess you are safe!

follow the frequency and servings values in the book, if you want to loose weight.

Lola, I do have a weight problem!
But I don't want to loose weight - I have to gain some! I am 160 cm tall and years back I used to have 47 kg.  Now that I am older I need some more weight and I am rather proud to have gained 53 kg. My goal is 55 kg.
Is there any advice on how to gain weight?

then you are doing the right thing!! )

add more of everything to your diet, but choose only from the beneficial and neutral category.

complete protein combos are also good for you, beside your veggies and fruit.
protein is made up of amino acids. There are eight amino acids generally regarded as essential for humans to obtain from food sources.  (There are other essential amino acids, but they are produced by the body.)  The body cannot assimilate these amino acids individually; they must be present in specific proportions for ANY of them to be used.  This specific proportion makes up a "complete protein".

Legumes + seeds
Legumes + nuts
Legumes + dairy
Grains + legumes
Grains + dairy
the exception is soy protein which is a complete protien and an plant protien
Fermenting removes most of the phytates which interferes with mineral absorption, it also helps to inactivate the protease inhibitors which interfere with protein digestion

Love this thread. I lost 35 pounds with this diet, and gained quite a bit of muscle due to exercise. Hang in there!

Personally, I posted my food categories on my fridge : Poultry 2- 3 x weekly, beans and legumes 5-7 weekly, etc and then I checked off each time I ate a category. Since I wasn't used to beans, I always got stuck eating them at the end of my week, but it helped changed my habits!

Today's menu: (It's a weird day, took sick kid to the doctor)

lemon water
grapefruit and pumpkin muffin (whole brain buckwheat, millet, chopped dates, honey, etc)
apple
roasted and salted almonds
more muffins
coffee with breakfast
glass of water
steamed rice with veggies and chicken (local fast food place, I make them leave out the sauce, salt and msg)
braggs aminos and sea salt added to above
second coffee
*****************************************

The rest of the day hasn't happened yet. I plan on eating:

pan fried pollack
strawberry kefir
raw veggie (probably a carrot, but who knows)

Since I have a sick little O, I have been trying to pour organic beef broth down him. No luck yet.

Thank you Lola!
But really, you did not do me a favour with your suggestion of legumes! I don't like them!
But of course I will try the protein combos and see how I like it. I might even get some soymilk again.  
I have to get used to it!
Have a nice day!

Eat more calories, add nut butters,nuts and seeds, use ghee on your foods. More weight bearing exercize to build muscle mass. Don't make aerobic exercize your main focus.

Ok, I like nut butters and nuts but not seeds so much.
I workout at my gym on three evenings for 1 hour and  I walk a lot and therefore I am nicely muscular.
I made a list ....
Thanks

Hi kerensa,
from a thin Italian A secretor as you, check yourself for a proper nutrient absorbtion (ADE vitamins, Iron Zinc Calcium) if it should get too hard to gain weight.  Celiac disease, A stomac hypoacidity and Leaky gut (all rather common) can all make difficult to have a proper weight, as other colon problems.
May be yoga can solve everything if you feel  well and all is OK , balancing your metabolic rate.
Stay well

Maria Giovanna - thanks!
I will take care of your suggestion. I did take Calcium and Zinc before and will do so again.
I can say that with my diet I do feel very well and since I eat inbetween meals I gained some weight alright.

Sounds like you are doing it right if you went from 47 kg to 53. The idea is to add more caloric foods to your diet.

I've never eaten nut butters. I looked at some yesterday in a health food store and found that they all contained palm oil. Is palm oil OK??

What nut butters are you trying to find? Tell us and I am sure someone can recommend a good brand.

I would think you would think you could find a brand that doesn't add palm oil, which I wouldn't recommend particularly for a type A.

In an HFS they had palm oil in their nut butter?  That's weird.

The best option for a nut butter is organic - the ingredients should list: nut, salt (at the most! Not all have salt but I prefer mine with it).

Granted you could also make your own... I can't remember which thread we talked about that in now.  I made some walnut butter that turned out lovely.

I remember reading somewhere that Palm oil was not the best oil to use. But I can't find the thread right now.

Why nut ...... I mean........ why not make your own nut butter? I did it and it is great!

Well the ingrediants are walnuts and palm oil, nothing else. Actually, if I've ever had fish fried in palm oil (in a shop), it's always made me sick, so have steered away from it.
I'm sure it would be better to make my own, any receipes?

Janet,

Just throw some nuts into a food processor, process, and then add some oil (I used walnut oil for my walnut butter) slowly until it reaches desired consistency.

Both Whole Foods and Trader Joe's have peanut butter and almond butter that are organic and without added oils.  Maranatha is a good brand.

Thanks for the help re making nut butter. It could be hard wirk because I don't have a food processor.
Sorry Connect14, afraid we don't all live in the good old USA!!
The HFS was an english one but many things were a bit strange when I read the labels.

Janet - other folks have used a food grinder and a blender as well - perhaps you can give one of those a try?
