the frequency guidelines are given in the books....
which of the books have you read?

I am almost finished with ER4RT.  I read the guidelines...I'm really more curious how people have made this easier, for themselves.  It's easy enough to follow a recipe step by step, or exactly measure oz for oz, while cooking...but this takes away the creative element.  I'm really curious how people make this fun, making it less task oriented, and more lifestyle.

Well, I wouldn't say it's fun, but I made a spreadsheet with the bennies and super bennies for my type and I keep it on the fridge. It also includes the frequency and portion sizes. When I first started out, I did a similar thing with bennies on one side and avoids on the other and shrunk it small to put into my wallet. Shortly thereafter I found out that NAP sells similar cards.

I rarely measure, unless I'm baking, but I do try to keep within the frequency guidelines.


It is not my responsibility to convince anyone of anything.

Good idea.  Thanks, Drea!  Nice quote by the way

For what it's worth I first had high cholesterol after about a year of a nearly-vegetarian diet with very little fat, a long time ago.

It came down for awhile after I started thyroid meds.

Can a lot of potatoes increase cholesterol and cause diabetes in an O? My mom's friend, who is O+, says she has high cholesterol and is beginning to develop type 2 diabetes. I asked what she was eating a lot of, and she said it was all the steaks that her doc said was making her cholesterol so high. Then I found out she likes to eat potatoes a whole lot, too. I think it is not good, since she quit the steaks and is staying on the potatoes. Also, for her diabetes she said she was advised to eat cherries and blueberries, for which I should have told her, prunes and pineapple. She was also eating almonds to help diabetes, do doctors tell them that, does it somewhat work? I told her walnuts preferred to almonds. But my main wonder......potatoes, should I tell her to go back to steaks and quit the potatoes? I even asked about wheat and corn, and said she doesn't eat those anyway.

that would be wise, yes.
but since her Dr already told her about the meat and all, she might think you are a bit off, don t you think?
those potatoes already have a hold on her!! lol

so, you believe they are the potatoes? being a tier 2 avoid can still have such harmful effects?

yes cause she does have considerable health issues.
remember tier II avoids are for those with no health issues at all.....

It's in the Live Right 4 Your Type, where secretor status is discussed in detail with food categories to suit the various types and subtypes.

Actually, very little except salads... quite low calorie. Not much grains or even starches at all.

well if you didn't eat meat or fat or carbs.....wow, salads. that would be a bit too low in calories I would think. But, add some meat and it would be great.
As for the potatoeatin gal.....some O's can eat them and some can't....I guess she can't. Better choice, sweet potato!!!Yes, it is lower glycemic index! Yay....for sweet potatoes.
