Geminisue!!!!  congrats to YOuUuuU girl!!!    wow.. what a great success story!  we are close to the same height... well.. you're about 4 inches taller than I am.   but wow.. I'm impressed!!!!   90 + lbs?? that's amazing!  
I have been a bit zealous about my weight.. at one point I was down to 93.7... loved "looking" at the numbers, but it was too hard to  maintain that weight.. at about 97 I can eat enough, stay healthy, and feel great...  
I think you are doing a TERRIFFIC job.. I hope you are feeling well and not feeling deprived.. just keep thinking healthy and peaceful thoughts.... most over eating is emotional....
YOUUUU have inspired me!   I'm impressed!

I eat much more than 2ozs portions - is this the problem? my lunch is 4ozs dinner 6ozs and two snacks in between of about 1oz ! dont think I have any avoids but he apple situation has really made me think as I eat loads - not organic and I confess not always washed properly - oh! dear!cannot eat nuts - I get cold sores and then need lysine - I am happy with lunch and dinner but breakfast is the big problem - maybe when I have more time to think about it and do it - am working too much overtime at the moment and the food situation is on "remote control"

As I've been discovering lately, it all depends on your body type (s-m-l), your height, weight, and how much exercise you get. Look to LR4YT for the portion sizes and frequencies for your type, and adjust from there. Most important is how you feel, me thinks.  


It is not my responsibility to convince anyone of anything.

I get cold sores ...

You may find that the BTD will reduce the frequency and maybe the severity of this problem.

well, Speedy,  hate to say it, but calories are calories.. if you are heavier than you want to be you just need to cut back.  Drea is right.. you have to "feel" good, but if you are trying to keep your weight down you  have to watch calories and get more exercise.. sad but true.. there is no magic involved..
Funny, I've never gotten cold sores from nuts.. but everyone knows their own body... maybe that's just  what happens with you! just like I get terrible brain fog from almonds... weird, huh? and almond butter.. brain fog... even raw organic types... strange..

That is not exactly true.
Quoted from Eat Right and Burn Fat while Building Muscle
http://www.4yourtype.com/muscle.asp
Not surprisingly, different foods have different effects on the Thermic Effect of Feeding (TEF), which gives us just one more reason knowing the best foods for your blood type. One significant study demonstrated that during the normal six-hour resting metabolism period, we typically burn about 270 calories. When eating a single meal of carbohydrates alone or fat alone, the energy burned during this six-hour period reached 290 calories (an additional 20 calories). Interestingly, when eating protein alone the subjects in this study burned 310 calories during this six hour period (an additional 40 calories). It appears, protein alone had double the thermogenic potential over fat or carbs alone!

The whole NAP article is worth reading.

Years ago in the early 1970's i was an early member of the new Weightwatchers - the diet was very strict - tomatoes and brussel sprouts had to be wighed and only 3 bare teaspoons of fat was allowed per DAY - I became very depressed and it made me quite ill - just like to let you all know sparing the olive oil could be a really bad thing!

I still have a long way to go, thanks for the congrats, and I am continuing on.  
tweaking my meat servings was a start in the right direction, but I still have more I have to work on, it is difficult because of health issues, exercise is at a bare minimum, a extra movements, each day, but everything is improving as long as I'm doing what I'm suppose to be doing, and some days are better than others.  
Weight watchers has a point system now, my daughter and grand daughter are doing that for the time being, have another daughter, who is walking four miles a day, and eating three meals a day, and I have a son, who I don't know what he survives on, No Vegetables for Sure, and Very Little Fruit.  He eats meat, drinks vitamin water, coffee, red bull.  

No Veggies, because he can't stand the texture of it in his mouth, he says give them to me in a capsule one a day I'll take it.  I laugh and say if they have it I bet you would need to take more than that a day, he shakes his head, no way.  Only thing I notice is his hairs not growing on top of his head, but every place else plenty for everyone.    Don't think that's possible.

Yes,  Isa, isn't it SO unfair that there are those people who can eat what they want ( which is a lot!) and never gain??? á it's unjustice! áI think if I did that just for one DAY I'd gain about ten pounds.. no kidding...
and thanks for the heads up about the áfruit sugar...I'm SURE it's better than heading for the chips or something.. or icecream... áI head for a bowl of grapes when I feel that way... but I'm sure áall of that ásugar in the grapes puts a kinky in the system.. áI notice my forhead breaks out when I eat too many grapes... must be the glycemic load getting too high..

My suggestions, although a bit late...
Toss the rice cakes away, and balance your meals a bit more....like 5 oz meat/each meal.  I usually grill up a flank steak or something, on Sundays and that is what I take to work to eat.  You could do the same with breakfast.....just cook and extra portion at dinner the night before, and gently reheat the next morning.  As far as fruits go, I usually save that for a mid afternoon snack, a nice pick me up and not too close to lunch or dinner.  Most importantly for us type O's.....meat, meat, veggies, meat!!

Have you actually had your secretor status tested?  Just wondering because I  used to have soy milk first thing in the morning...turns out I am a nonnie and soy is OUT.  When I changed to the nonnie foods I was supposed to eat, the weight just fell off.

Geminisue- can you son do veggies juice ???
Sound horible without any veggies... my brothers friend was the same and he started drinking fresh carrot, beet apple juice- liked that and continues doing gree juices at least he gets some of the veggies benefits that way...

About meat I┤m 5.5 woman ( 20 pound overweight) rh - ( needs more protein)
and I would NEVER get full on just 2 oz meat/fish.

For lunch I have 2-3 oz and for dinner I have 4-5 oz- depending on my sidedish - if I do a no grain approach I go for the 5 oz soemtimes 6 oz.
Strange enough when I eat fish I always get really full just when I eat it- but 2 hous later I┤m starving....

I get so tired on protein and vegetables and seem to need the lift of a fruit (which is carbohydrate)to get me moving again. Is this just a lifelong bad habit or do you need the carbos sometimes - I must admit I have never tried having some carrot or sweet potato around for this time - All the shop bought juices here contain loads of tomato juice which is a big no for me and I dont have time to get the juicer out at the moment - (dealing with all the pith remains puts me off) doing too much overtime and permantly tired but hopefull will pass soon

I just discovered an article in August 20th, First  about maximum metabolism with water.  The main points are Hot water triggers body wide detox, lukewarm water suppresses appetite and iced cold water give your body a workout.  They say you could lose about ten pounds a week, so of course I am going to try this as soon as I could make myself a schedule to follow to get the right type of water in the body at the right meal or between meals. If anyone wants more detail I will share.

No, Henrietta, he can't stand the taste of V 8, and he has tried it on several occasions, and then passes them on to me.  I was wondering about the Fusion, but I haven't checked ingredients, on sweeteners and such, does anyone know, maybe I can get him a bottle and see if he will drink it. and how much good stuff is in it?

Speedy, if you like boiled eggs and rice cakes, how about having them with your evening meal.  That is the meal to eat grains, if you choose to eat them.  And maybe only one rice cake.



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.

Speedy,  if you choose to have soy milk, read the ingredient list CAREFULLY.  Most of the brands of soy milk out there have a ton of bad things.  Westsoy Unsweetened Soy Milk is a good one to try.  Silk is a bad choice.  You have to be a label reader!

Surely it is better to have grains early in the day so the body can work them off in exercise - if you eat them at an evening meal they will "sit on your hips" Another comment relating to eggs - if you have them every day surely a three egg portion is way too much - thats 21 eggs a week - think of the cholesterol!

read this, it might change your concept on eggs!

I agree 21 is a bit high, though and also blood type is key.
