Quoted from Tina
Can anyone direct me to a safe appetitie suppressant?  I just would like to try something because no matter how hard I try, it seems I am still eating too much, healthily I must say, but still just too much and it is so hard to scale back for me.  I can do it, but I have to think about it constantly.


I just reread this first posting and I could have written it about myself! I'm still having a problem with portion control and feeling satiated, even when eating mainly beneficials, so I'm thinking if there were some form of appetite suppressant out there for A secretors, I'd like to know about it. Tyrosine and Glutamine were mentioned on another thread. Would they work for me?

As should focus on calming down and lowering cortisol levels.......which might trigger binging, and other uncontrolled eating patterns.

alternate nostril breathing, is nice......plus the nerve health protocols

I answered you question about glutamine and tyrosine in another thread: O Nonnie Circles Under Eyes

Are you craving sweets or do you just not feel satiated? Do you start your day with a big more protein oriented breakfast?

Thanks MoDon, I'll go searching the other thread. The answers to your questions are yes, yes, and yes.

Quoted from ironwood55

In the old message board it was discussed several times that glutamine caused an increase in cortisol for type A and therefore may not be wise. Maybe it is OK in the smaller 200-500mg twice daily amounts for type A, versus the 500mg when needed for type Os.

I wasn't trying to say that type As couldn't use tyrosine, for example for stress. Just that it may not work the same way or to the same extent as a type O for appetite suppression, since type Os apparently have a more problematic dopamine system and Dr. D had said that dopamine is very important to the mental stability of type Os. Therefore, I was questioning if tyrosine may not help as much for appetite suppression in a type A as it might in a type O.

In the Diabetes book on page 104 it recommends type A with a sweet craving problem using milk thistle for a few weeks and maybe a cup of licorice tea at 10 am and 2 pm.



I don't feel like I'm under acute stress, just that I crave foods that maybe are not that good for me - or are more than the recommended servings of good foods. Sometimes I crave sweets, but usually I can get my hands on some dried fruit or some 100% fruit spread. I usually just eat more than the recommended amount of servings of everything except fruits and vegetables because I'm not feeling satiated. I eat a lot of vegetables, but they are mostly non-starchy veggies like kale, broccoli, celery, carrots, onions, ginger, garlic... I almost always start my day with a high protein b'fst, and rarely do I eat grains before dinner.

I'm just looking for a way to curb my appetite.

Hi Susana,

I hope what I share may assist you: Perhaps if you try to rethink this way of eating in a manner that is not restrained/rigid/limiting---your problem will be alleviated.  I believe the BTD allows us a large framework or parameters to make individual choices on a daily basis.  

One does not need to be 100% perfect or compliant if that is not one's intent.  To successfully work for the long run, one has to make this lifestyle manageable for them in an approachable sense; every day may be different.

Alia


Alia thank you   Sorry, I was not aware of your reply till now

You are quite right but unfortunately it seems that in terms of food I operate under my addictive brain  All good advice is not applicable I get all hipped up with it initially till I want my dose  .

Drea, have you tried eating really slowly? Apreciating your food, the way it looks, smells, chewing you food 30 times before swallowing, etc

When I aim at reducing my intake it is the only thing that works. But it only works with compliant foods. avoids are a differnt game

Susana, what a timed suggestion! I have completely lost track of enjoying each bite. Lately, I'm rushing through my meals to get back to work (school). I will start to appreciate my meals and see if that helps.

Tina,

I'm finding the sarsparilla root and dandelion root to be mad effective appetite suppresants, and I'm an O-nonnie just like you...

They're listed as herbs for fatigue-fighting and metabolic enhancement, but I swear they have cut down my appetite by at least half, and I'm noticing that my stomach is going down quite a bit.

That's exactly what I'm looking for, something for A's that will cut my appetite.

Drea it honestly sounds to me that you have a yeast or bacterial overgrowth issue, I feel like I've mentioned this to a lot of people but your symptoms sound like yeast

I love nori; sometimes I'll eat 5 sheets in one sitting, although it does tend to irritate the corners of my mouth (temporarily).

I've decided that I am one of those people who is looking for the magic secret and really, the will has to come from me. I just need to reprogram my eating habits.
