I've reduced them to once a day and have been feeling much better. I found that I crave sugar the more grains I eat. Thanks

Perhaps experiment with grain portions and keep a written record or watch the portion/frequency recommendations in one of the the ER4YT Health Series Books (A secretors).

1 grain portion equals: 2 slices of bread, 1/2 cup dry grain 7-10x/weekly.

Hi,
I am starting the eating habits of BTD lifestyle.  So I have gathered that since I am overweight, that sticking to the portion size, how many times allowed daily or weekly, and stick mainly to the "Beneficial" list, that I will lose weight?

If that's so, then what do I eat for breakfast?  I usually eat 2 eggs and fruit.  I need menu samples for an "O".

Well, if you add up your calories you eat a day you may find that in reality you are eating too many calories, or, you may see that you are not eating enough. That may explain things. From what you posted daily, it doesn't even look like you are eating 1,000. calories a day.... your body will store fat and go in to starvation mode. But, I do suggest actually keeping a journal for a week or so and eating normally and marking exactly what you eat, every bite, and what the calories are. I think you aren't eating enough, but then again, nuts do have a lot of calories that add up quickly. I'm not normally a calorie counter, but recently started counting and I was shocked to see how quickly oils add up if you aren't careful. If you followed the serving sizes in the book it is really hard to go over a healthy daily calorie amount, and I feel this could explain why so many people lose weight on this diet (as well as eating what works well for their type.)

Of course stick to the beneficial foods as much as you can, and yes, more veggies.

Try reading this Golden thread: Breakfast Ideas for Type O.

Don't forget the exercise part of the diet and drink plenty of water.
Minimize use of all grains or avoid them entirely.
Eat a high protein breakfast and save most of your carbs for dinner.

Welcome to the BTD lifestyle and forum, cheeselady.

I believe 100% compliancy with an emphasis on beneficials will quick start your weight loss efforts.  Stick to the lower range of the portion/frequency guidelines.

I believe many blood type O's often recommend a protein source and vegetables/salad to maintain energy and encourage proper metabolic functioning early in the day.

Well I think the reason you are not losing weight is because of the breastfeeding. You are not heavy at 135 anyway. I breastfed both of my children and kudos to you. It is the best thing you can give your children. My son for 8 months and my daughter for 16 months. I found that when I finished breastfeeding that last 10 pounds dropped off. I think the body retains it while breastfeeding. At least mine did.,

I am new to the forums, but I have been following the diet since November 2005.  I have lost 60 pounds since.  I have found that eating protein at every meal really helps me.  I also use plums or Granny Smith apples for desserts and snacks.

Good work sluggerbean...  

I like to use fruit for dessert when possible as well.  Right now, even fruit sugar bothers me, so I'm limiting it.

Someone said not to eat fruit with vegetables is this true? I know nuts are fattening I guess having a little bit of a hard time finding proteins to add other than nuts.  I am eating tofu and fish 2x a week. I'm feeling a little overwhelmed.:{

make a food combining search and find out more.....
food combining is very individual......BTD does not advocate it, but you can certainly add it to your plan if you wish.

here are some possible complete protein combos for your type.....

Legumes + seeds
Legumes + nuts
Legumes + dairy
Grains + legumes
Grains + dairy
the exception is soy protein which is a complete protein and an plant protein

there s a lot to choose from as you can see.

watch your daily frequency values, of servings and you ll be fine.

Carrie,
How about adding some turkey, chicken or cornish hen once or twice a week?  

Breastfeeding women are going to need a little more protein than usual, in my opinion.  You could also add other forms of soy, such as fresh soybeans, tempeh, miso soup, and some good bean soups with Manna Bread.



Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are.
Let me not pass you by in quest
of some rare and perfect tomorrow.

Would it be a good idea to follow the 30day menu in CR4YT? I don't have to eat the snacks if i'm not hungry do I? Would I cut out some of the grains listed for each days menu to not gain weight?
