For me, the B diet is challenging when it comes to trying to eat beneficial meats. As we all know, many on the beneficial list are not common and often hard to find.

I do feel my best if I don't eat a lot of meat - ie with every meal. I have always been good about eating my vegetables and now am trying to eat more fruit. As we know, for a long time we were told by other nutrition sources that fruit should be limited because it had so much sugar. Now we know that most fruits are moderate in sugar compared with something processed we could eat, plus has vitamins, minerals, water and fiber that something else may not have. I think they finally figured out that people were drinking more soda, eating fries and burgers and sweets instead of eating fruit so they gave in and improved the "food pyramid"!

I agree so much - and so do the 2 other danish Bīs that I know ( My sister and friend)

I hardly ever get more than 2-4 servings of the benficial meat pr month- the rest is neutral. I donīt worry much since I pay more attention to the rest of the beneficial foods.
My thinking is really: rather a neutral meat or fish than NO fish/meat- and I always try to get some fish/meat that are beneficial for my daughter(O) - when I canīt get the few beneficial meats that I actually likes !

I try to aim at minimum 1 serving of either fish or meat pr day-
Sometimes I get 2 small servings pr day.
Mainly beacouse of my life with an O - but also since I am a RH - I need more meat/fish than the rh +

Henriette - my husband is an O as well, so I know what you mean!

Fish is one thing that I don't have a big craving for - we are eating more of it now just to have some break from meat itself but I have to say that most of it does not have a high taste appeal with me. My husband being an O loves all types of seafood and that is his favorite food to have when we eat somewhere special.

Iīm a bit fussy as well with the fish......
When other people cook for me and the fish is REALLY fresh I do like some of it - but.......
I mainly have cod, graved salmon, sole , scallops and haddock.- but only 1 a week- and not the 3-5 times pr week !
I do like monksfish as well- but it is  bit expensive.
I donīt know why I was created with luxury tastebuds- but I am

I have not tried monkfish but heard it was called the "poor man's lobster"!

When we eat fish, we eat salmon, sometimes trout, cod and other white fish. I can see why people fry fish but some many of the white fish have very mild and undistintive flavor. I like scallops and shrimp and also a couple of times a year eat calamari.

It's hard when you have more than one type in a household. I feel sorry for those who have three types in one household. Hard to be compliant let alone eat beneficials.

I just started doing low impact (but fairly high intensity) aerobics. I know B's are supposed to do more sedentary exercise. I do love yoga and did it for years before it was even fashionable to do so, but right now I feel I need to jump start my fitness again so had to add the aerobics!

We love walking, too and do it as much as possible. We are lucky that we live in a neighborhood that has a variety - some steep hills, flat land, etc. The weather here in Colorado can be changeable but we found you just bundle up more for winter walking, etc.

I love to garden and I think this must be something special with B's because my Dad is an 86 yr old B and loves to garden, and his Mom (who I am sure must have been a B) also was a gardener. I think I inherited their love of gardening. One thing we did when we moved into our house 4 years ago was to put in some raised vegetable beds in the backyard. The people before us did nothing with their garden and yard space and literally put tons of crushed rock everywhere. I told my husband if we move again, I am OK with a smaller house but want yard room for a garden!!

Maybe you are right about the Bīs and gardening?
I know lots of Oīs and ABīs that likes their garden- but the Bīs have a speciel feeling about their garden.
My granny a B spent all the time in her garden- it kind of killed her when she moved away from it at 91 to a small flat.
She had all kinds of problems the last 2 years of her life. Untill that she had been worn out but healthy- I enjoyed watching her un the garden with her hoe. My sister (B) is a landscape architect and my friend (B) and I all share the work in the garden.( BTW we are weirdos - all of use are in our 30s!)
BUT we do it in compleetely diffent ways than the O and ABīs - None of the Aīs that I know have a garden - or want one !
All of the Bīs gardens have some weed.... but donīt stress that much about it unless it is the wrong places
- they seem to grow interesting varieties of veggies and flowers. Like rainbow carrots or yellow beets.

We all love looking at the life in the garden.
When I weed it is almost a spiritual thing !
It relaxes my mind so much and I love the feeling of the sun- wind on my face.

But I never ever feel that my garden have to look perfect for the sake of the neighbours
- I just love that it is alive and sometimes live a life of its own.
And now Iīll go and prepaire the garden for its wintersleep- it is sunny here and very hot 15 C/59 F for a late november day ! So Iīll make the most of my day off

Henriette: You are so right because it is the same with the B's that I know regarding gardening. My 86 yr old Dad still lives on the farm that we grew up on. He no longer can manage animals or a big garden but has to do a little something each year. His Mom, who I am sure was a B lived to 94 1/2. She loved to garden as well. When you said that we B's like to try different vegetables, that also fit us. We always grew a large garden and had fruit trees and my Mom, sister and I would can the fruits and vegetables to enjoy all winter. My Dad always would say he wanted to try something new each year and I also have done this.

My husband is an O and loves the things from our garden but is not a gardener. However my 15 yr old type B son loves the garden and also would love to have more space to do more.

I need some advice here.

Do any other Bs count calories, or should I just forego the calorie counting thing?

Is Muesli okay? I soak oats in milk for a couple of hours in the refrigerator, add yogurt, sugarless jam and maybe additional sweetener. is this okay for Bs?

I'm also trying to clean up my diet - get the condiments out (too much sugar) and all of that stuff.

I have bad sweet cravings, and I have PCOS, and at high-risk to get diabetes and have major fatigue problems. All this with 3 kids.

Should I have protein for breakfast  and muesli for dinner?

I'm not eating chicken or corn, but peanut butter and wheat are still a part of my diet. Those are so hard to get out.

I would deeply appreciate some "extra" dietary guidelines.




Hi,
I also love peanutbutter unfortunately and used to eat tons of it everysingle day ... imagine that ???!!!!
however; I've since switched to almond butter and love that almost as much
hehehe
Don't get me wrong ... I still eat peanutbutter on ocassion cause
it's my favorite food on earth but ALOT less than before !!!

Be willing to try the almond butter and hopefully u will enjoy it  

I'm also a sugarlover unfortunately ... but have since switched to honey or molasses instead of white sugar on most days ...
Do u eat manna bread ?? Next time u crave sweetstuff
just have a couple slices or carrot/raisin manna bread with honey
on it, it's so delicious and ok for us B'S

Don't be so hard on urself ... easy does it ... one day at a time ... one meal at a time ... and in time u will make other discoveries and when u do please share them !!!

btw forget about calories counting u will just end up driving urself crazy !!!
Everything in moderation is key ...

I wish u all the best

Yes, that is why I said sometimes trout. I have not eaten it in quite a while. Most of my fish has been tuna, cod or salmon (wild not farm raised). We live in Colorado so can get nice trout, but once I thought about it, it has been at least a year or more since I had any.

Lisalea, we also eat almond butter instead of peanut butter. My type B son gets an upset stomach from peanut butter, but almond butter is no problem. I think like wheat, a lot of the peanuts have been bred to have allergens. Look at how many kids are allergic to it. I read not long ago that some of the high allergies for peanuts were due to exposure to peanut related oils and such when kids are babies. They said some baby oils and shampoos might have peanut oil and the kids whose parents used these tend to have allergies, some very serious. So they suggested that if you have a baby, read the label to make sure that you are not using these products.

I am always so amazed what is out there as additives to foods, beverages and even soaps, shampoos, etc. Just saw on "Unwrapped" a couple of weeks ago that Twizzlers are made with wheat flour and high fructose corn syrup.  Who knew that a candy like that would be made with wheat flour dough!

Oh yes, I hear u ...

It's so very discouraging at times ... no wonder kids r having heart attacks in their twenties ... we live in such a stressful world nowadays !!!!!!!
however; we have found BTD hence when we know better we can also do better,  right ??

The suggestions about walnuts in the almond butter sounded really yummi to me  
I'm gonna try it !!

I also wanted to mention to u that it's so true that whenever I eat protein versus carbs in the mornings it does keep me full longer
Example: A small bowl of cottage cheese with a chopped up pear in it, nutmeg, a few walnuts and honey ... if I'm really hungry I'll alo eat a slice of manna bread with some molasses

Cheers

Almond butter is so much more tasty I think than peanut butter. Lots of peanut butter is also made with shortening type fats to make them smooth.

We like a brand called Kettle. The almonds are roasted so it gives the butter a nice full flavor.

Walnut butter sounds good, too. I am going to try Walnut oil on our salads. I want to up our Omega fats. We use mostly olive oil for salad purposes.

I like the Kettle brand almond butter too. I particularly like it because the version I get has a little salt in it. Unfortunately, the store where I can buy it, Kroger, just upped the price dramatically, about $2 a jar.

Same here. We also get ours at a Kroger. They did have a special last summer where they had it buy one get one free. We bought several then. Stores like Wild Oats and Whole foods also let you grind your own. That is nice, too. You can add your own sea salt that way or leave as is.

I have been on this diet for over a year and since I got my secretor status done it has explained a lot to me about why my blood sugar was so up and down.  I was eating far too many grains.  I put a sheet on my fridge to show the frequency for grains a week for non-secretors.  It has really helped and I don't get the blood sugar swings I used to.  I also have to stay away from white/brown sugar and fructose as a non-secretor.  

Also non-secretors have more protein requirements and so I have to have protein at almost every meal to keep my blood sugar even or I get light-headed.

Berries have also become more important in my diet due to my non-secretor status.

As for night-time snack, if I have a good hardy dinner (with fish or meat for the protein) and finish around 7 p.m. then I don't need much of a snack before bed.  I can get away with a bowl of grapes, apple or a tea.  I always take my magnesium though.   Falling asleep is no problem if I go to bed before 11 p.m.

We are all very different but have similar needs as B's so just listen to your body and try different approaches within your blood type food requirements and you will learn what works.  All the best!
