If anyone adapts this to your own bloodtypes, I hope you will share with us your private recipes.  

Many people do better with a liquid meal for breakfast, but that doesn't mean it needs to be haphazard.  I think it's possible to drink a "light" and easily digestable meal that is still rich in nutrients and provides a good source of protein.  With this approach to my breakfast, I'm never tempted to skip breakfast.  I'm not a solid food eater in the morning, and if I didn't have an alternative, I would end up starting my day with just a cup of tea.  That would be a big mistake.

What I drink in the morning these days is 1 tbl flax seed oil with 150cc (my small glass) diluted unsweetened pomegranate extract.  This is instead the 1 tbl olive oil I used to take with fresh orange juice before BTD. As the weather is cooling down at this time, I also prepare green tea, but in weekdays I just take few sips.

Another new "food" is the grape seed oil I use after the morning shower as I learned from you Victoria. It's so invigorating and I think relaxing at the same time. I suddenly breathe and smile and feel like a new person when coming out of the shower, ready to go out and start the day.

Throughout winter time I take in the morning 12cc elderberry extract for prophylaxis. I also buy frozen wheat grass juice in small 30cc plastic boxes, which I thaw during the night and drink in the morning, but I don't take it regularly. When I've finished what there's in the freezer, I 'forget about it' for a while until next purchase. The best would be to buy a special juicer and order a weekly supply of wheat grass.

I like to eat the proteins freshly made and warm from the oven or pot (fish) or pan (omlette)... What I don't eat at home I finish off at work, usually no later than 10 am... and leave the veggies, beet root, sesame butter, lettuce and walnuts for later in the day.

yael,
I add a hint of lavender to the oil, it soothes marvelously and also gives the oil a nice aroma.

Can those of you who have been following BTD for a long time tell me your experience with the weight issue? After the initial loss of weight, were you able to maintain at a good weight by continuing to eat compliantly? I lost approx. 30 lbs. before starting BTD, due to stomach problems. I don't need to lose more, but I also don't want to gain weight back. I think I am "just right." Can I expect to stay at this weight? It seems like there's an awful lot of oil used by Type As.

My husband, who has been eating compliantly for the most part at home says he has noticed a difference in the fit of his clothes but hasn't gotten on a scale yet. He needs to lose weight (which is how I got him to try this with me).

as a general rule, those who do not follow the frequency guidelines given of the different food groups, gain weight if they happen to have a slow metabolism.

Hi Deborah,

When you lost your initial 30 lbs, were you following the portion/frequency guidelines in ER or LR?  Perhaps staying on the lower end of these numbers would help; I encourage to experiment with these guidelines.  If you feel the oil portions are too high, adjust to your own needs.  

Exercise plays an important role in maintaining and/or losing weight, as well.  Even if we only ate beneficial and neutral foods, we need to expendite calories to lose weight.  I believe eating right for our bodies makes the process of weight management healthy and long-term; you can always cater the food plans and food choices to your own individual goals/objectives.

Best wishes to you.

Alia

Along the lines of what Lola said, often people are so happy, and feel so good, eating the foods that agree with their blood types, that they overeat (in their enthusiasm and relief).

Just because a food is beneficial doesn't mean that it can be eaten in unlimited quantities (unless it is something like bene vegetables).  Just be aware.

I lost around 30 pounds when starting on the non-secretor diet (I didn't lose any weight on the B secretor diet).  That was 4 1/2 years ago, and I have re-gained 6 of those pounds and stabilized at close to my ideal weight.  If I stop exercising or start "snacking", my weight will start to creep up again.  So responsible and informed behavior is necessary for me.

The trick is to lose fat and water, but grow muscle. Sometimes that makes the scale appear as if nothing much is happening, although clothes 'fit' better.

The appropriate diet for you type will tend to do that better than just about any other.

In my case I've noticed (after loosing 90 pounds) that I am able to keep my weight pretty stable. Even when I jump off BTD every now and then, I still maintain the same weight. Now I still have some weight to loose and I am starting on that now, but it's nice to know that when I reached my ideal weight (I want to loose 20 -30 pounds still) I will be able to keep it by just eating normal and that "pampering" myself once and a while will not make my weight jump up and down like a jojo.

I am building a lot of muscle at the moment, because just recently I put on a jeans two sizes smaller, but the scale is not budging. I am staying steady at the same weight for the past 4 weeks. But I am not worried about this. It will go down and the fact that my clothes are getting looser is a good sign.

What have you been doing, excersing-wise, that you've been putting on muscle? I'm always interested to know these things  .


It is not my responsibility to convince anyone of anything.

Going back several comments, yes I am planning to get my secretor status tested. I have a strong hunch that I am a non secretor, just based on the foods that agree with me more on the B list.

I did have a question that I don't fully understand - why is spelt grain Ok but not the flour. We get organic spelt berries and bought a grinder and make it into a flour so we can use it to make our own bread. I don't understand why the flour would not be good for us?

I believe the spelt flour/product TYPEbase entry refers to white spelt flour and the spelt entry is for whole spelt. The whole grain is better for you.

In the case of wheat it is opposite of this. Whole wheat is worse than white wheat.

I told my doctor that I wanted to gain muscle in a sensible way so he referred me to a physical therapist. He showed me exercises for my stomach, legs, arms with and without weights, and for the last two weeks I have been walking up 570 stairs (we have an elevation here on Aruba that has 570 stairs going straight up, it's great for exercising) and down. That will build up muscles in your legs, calves and buttocks.
And I've started on mountain biking in the weekend and I alternate it with exercises for my stomach and my arms.
