Well I have been craving a burger for some time now but would not allow myself to have one. Today we were out of town shopping and we went to Ruby Tuesday's to eat dinner. I ordered their turkey burger with a side of steamed broccili. It was so good and juicy I ate the whole thing. It satisified my burger craving and it was better than beef. It did have a little mayo but I took the tomatoe off and the pickles. Left the lettuce and onion. Yummmmy. I could eat another one.

You can always make them at home, Sassy!  They're great made up with finely minced onion and parsley inside.

Thanks for the welcome, Sun Beh Nim.

You are not the only person to recommend the book. But my doctor says I am not diabetic. What I have is hypoglycemia. Should I still be reading the book?  

Come to think of it, on my father's side there is a history of diabetes among the female members. By the way, I feel a lot better since I cut the wheat out. I wonder how long I resist bagels, spaghetti, etc.

hypoglycemia is a precurser to diabetes, it is still a disfunction of the pancreas, also you say you wonder how much longer you can resist wheat, well perhaps you should think about how much longer you want to live and how happy and healthy you want that life to be

Hi I am new here one day on the diet can I ask a question? Is olive oil margarine OK for A diets?

Actually, any kind of "margarine" is usually a highly processed product and, often, the processing can render even a good fat such as olive into a "transfat", which we want to avoid, especially for you as a Type A.  So, in general, I would say that choosing a pure, less processed fat is far, far preferable.  For example, I'm not sure what you want to use the margarine for, but what about using pure olive oil (beneficial for your type) itself?  Or you could use "ghee" (neutral), which is a clarified butter (you heat up the butter and skim off the stuff at the top, just using the clear stuff that is left, which is the ghee).  As a Type A, beneficial olive oil or neutral ghee are your ideal butter substitutes.

Welcome, by the way!!!

Hi Pacheco,
Welcome to the BTD Forum.  You'll be better off if you avoid processed foods, and eat either foods you make yourself, or basic natural foods with no additives.
I agree with Peppermint that Ghee and Extra Virgin Olive Oil are the healthy choices.  Stay away from margarine of any kind, is my advice.  It is made in such a way that makes the oils (even if they are good oils) changed in their chemical make-up, so that they are no longer healthy fats.

By the way, if you go to the member center and get shield for yourself that shows that you are type A, then people won't have to ask your blood type if you want to make more posts.

Hi Oona,
I'm happy to see a new post, and a tremendous welcome to the Forum!  

Are you aware that peanut butter is beneficial for type A?  And wheat is neutral.

You're right about the quantity of wheat, but all in all, your day wasn't bad.  Just stick in some more vegetables and decrease the wheat.  And have healthy jelly with your PBJ!  


Thank you for the warm welcome! Yes, there are way worse things than PBJ, especially with all the organic stuff, it's just that some days I have a little too much wheat and I get a runny nose. Weird.

I'm hypoglycemic as well, and I have noticed an huge improvement since starting the BTD. I do however stay away from fruits in the morning as I seem to crash very soon after eating them. For me, fruits are mostly for snacks.

Although wheat is low on our list of priorities, I  tolerate it when mixed in a rye loaf, to save the effort of always having to search for the 'difficult to find' 100% rye bread.

Oona, a great many people find that wheat is a food that is best avoided, even if it's allowed for your blood type.  There are a lot of good alternative grains out there that are easier to digest.  And IF you turn out to be a non-secretor, that would reduce wheat to a neutral instead of beneficial anyway.  

I have a fruit smoothie in the a.m., but it contains plenty of protein also.  I would be a basket case if I started the day without protein.

We have two A's and two O's in the house, so I am trying desperately to phase out wheat. Tried rice pasta and the family wasn't happy, though they did like artichoke pasta. I will be checking the complete ingredients on that one next time I come across it. I am asking for a bread machine for my birthday (on the 1st, go me) so I can make some of the breads in CR4YT.

As for Rye, our Trader Joes does carry one (flour free), but the kids didn't care for it unless it's on a tuna sandwich. MMMMM. That one is a staple in our house. Tuna, chopped flat parsley and lemon juice tossed on rye. Very delish.

nice thread..makes me realize I am not doing too badly on this diet.  Typical day...

breakfast: two slice cin raisin ekezial bread with a little peanut butter with flax seed and a glass of pineapple juice.

Lunch:  either salad with mixed greens, brown rice, tofu, carrots, green onion, avacado or pb and j on ekezial bread with bennie fruit of some sort, blueberry, cherry apricot plum etc. I try and only eat bennie fruits. I have also been putting a little ground flax on my pband j

diner varies a lot from good to horrible.  Still try and eat mainly bennies.

if I snack it is almonds or seed pumkin usually.  

I drink 16oz of green tea and 2 L of water daily.  Some days I will have a little coffee with cream and some days a wheat bagel with a tiny bit of cream cheese  both avoids I know.  

So, I try and make 2/3 of food consumed come from bennies and no avoids if possible.

Nicolita,
Actually wheat is neutral if you are a secretor.  
Why don't you try Chevrie with your bagel instead of cream cheese.  It's neutral!

I expect everybody finds that eating at home is fairly simple. My problem is always on trips.
In april we had 2 weeks in Portugal, we've just had 2 weeks in Belguim and are shortly due to have 4 weeks in Uganda.
My past experience of visits to Africa is that 'food is food'. I somehow can't bring myself to be too choosy, particularly when in peoples homes.
But 4 weeks is a long time to be eating things that really do your system no good.
My husband says he will stick with fish - i am not a lover of fish.
Any ideas??

Hi Janet,
Well, maybe it's time to choose the lesser of evils.  You don't like fish, but at least most of them are not avoids for you.  If you stick with vegetables, fish and fruits and a little bread, maybe you won't be eating your favorites, but at least you won't be poisoning yourself!

Hi Victoria, yes it's always 'damage limitation' I have to go for!!
In Belguim we were with Congolese people and the only veg they served was cassava leaves and canned veg and so much pork products.
