Tahini is neutral for type A's.

I've heard some talk against steel cut oatmeal, but none other than that. Someone else may have other info. Oh, wait, I meant to say, I'm sure someone else will have other info. There are so many great minds on this forum.

I have read that regular rolled oats have a lower glycemic index then any sort of quick oats. Therefore, regular oats would be preferable versus quick oats.

Thank you so much for all the information. I am thinking of trying the breakfast mixture on the blog rice bran, ground flax and ground pumpkin seed, ( I have a question). Do you find this already ground in health food stores or do you do it yourself? If so, how does one grind flax seed and pumpkin seed. I have a blender and a food processer but this would not do the trick.

the food processor does the trick just fine, I think.

Meribelle: Also, try that lemon juice idea.  I use 1Tbs. in an 8oz glass of warm water(not hot) in the morning.

I have read this entire thread now and thank you all for your suggestions.  I didn't have constipation prior to BTD and it has hit the past couple of months.  I make a smoothie every morning and I put in pineapple juice and a banana and now I read that bananas are constipating...OH MY !!  Good to learn that.


Bananas tend to constipate only IF u eat them when they r  NOT fully ripe (yellow with brown spots)
green =  that they r still very starchy

warm is always advised as opposed to boiling hot or extremely cold.....it s gentler to your system.

also for tea brewing.......very hot and boiling is not advised, either.

I see ur point and thank-u Lola ... the reason I boil the water is simply 'cause people have always said that it's better to do so for germs ... etc ... (it's supposed to cleanse the water so to speak) ... however; I always wait till the water turns somewhat lukewarm-warm before actually sipping/drinking it ... I guess this would be ok, right ??

Another thing that I've always wondered about is how long can one leave a cup of tea on the counter ??
Is it the same rule as food; that it will start to acculmulate bacteria if left at room temperature for too long ??
TY

as long as you drink it up during the day, it should be fine.....

I have tried the lemon water for 2 days and eaten a grapefruit for breakfast with no results yet. I am going to store today to get fresh lemons since I was using bottled juice. If that doesnt work I will have to try some of the more exotic remedies
The only thing I have noticed is a pain in my stomache I think from the sour lemon juice

Are you trying to address constipation issues?  Try magnesium supplements.  They work quickly and wonderfully!  (As long as you are getting enough gentle fiber.)

I can't take lemon juice.  It burns my stomach, no matter how dilute.

You may need more than ONE grapefruit.  Eat several pieces of fruit daily for breakfast if you can.  Try beets, greens, or peas at other meals. I have the tendency, but I eat lots of fiber which keeps things moving along.  The problem is, that if you eat properly, you have more than one bowel movement a day.   In our modern world, that is difficult to coordinate.  I prefer working part-time.  I really wouldn't function well with full work shifts daily.  This is one reason!!
