Hey guys,

Quick Note: Jane your Red Sox killed us this weekend!!

Anyways, on to my question....I'm training for a marathon and as an O, I have eliminated all breads, pastas etc..., but this week my energy level has been zero.  I'm still eating a millet and flax bread but not alot and i guess its just a struggle for me from always carbo loading to barely any.  Is this normal at the beginning?  I need energy, my runs have been horrible this past week!

what are you having instead?
protein, fat and veggies as well as fruit and legumes?

I do not see why you shouldn t have compliant grains......just add more protein and fats, too.

Here's an interesting thread about Type O and being an athelete. Once you get comfortable with the site, you will be able to find old threads like this one using the search feature.

It's still nice to find out what the current thoughts are.

Even if you don't normally eat grains, if you feel that you have more energy when exercising hard, it should be fine.  You could always go back to being grain-free after the competition.  

There are other O athletes who are grain-free who carb-load with vegetable and fruit-based carbs.  Have you tried that approach first?

Try reading this article A Summary of The Paleo Diet for Athletes and then use appropriate BTD foods to make it work.

Hey guys,

Quick Note: Jane your Red Sox killed us this weekend!!

Anyways, on to my question....I'm training for a marathon and as an O, I have eliminated all breads, pastas etc..., but this week my energy level has been zero.  I'm still eating a millet and flax bread but not alot and i guess its just a struggle for me from always carbo loading to barely any.  Is this normal at the beginning?  I need energy, my runs have been horrible this past week!


I'm a newbie marathon trainer (2 months old)...and I'm an ovo-vegetarian at that! I'm not an ideal O to share my limited experience, but here goes..

I carb load with pumpkins, sweet poatoes, squashes, carrots, turnip etc., for dinner, along with other vegetables, Mon-Fri. These mentioned root veggies are starchy veggies and they give me a lot of stamina the following morning. And I have a banana once I have cooled down and stretched after the run. I eat rice during the weekend.

I havent had muscle loss (so far), and I can actually see a nice "w" on my quads and calf. There's  a "cut" forming on the deltoid & biceps, not hugely defined but can be seen all the same. I follow the CardioVascular protocol to fine tune on the bean catagory and am very compliant with my existing choices.

My only issue is with my lungs. It gets phelgmy every time I finish a run. I might have to rethink my wish to take part in a marathon...sad...

voguegirl47,
If you wish to list what you typically eat in a day for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, and beverages we can further assist you in what may provide more stamina and energy for your runs incorporating the blood 'O' food choices.

well usually its a banana before my morning workout, breakfast is rice milk with protein powder and millet and flax cereal, lunch is either roast beef with pumpkin seeds or a protein shake and dinner is some type of meat on millet and flax bread with figs or prunes or brocolli, and then i usually have a snack of more cereal with rice milk later on........beverages are green tea and water

try more protein for breakfast, animal sourced, preferably grass fed organic, and up those veggies!
ghee would also be worth looking into.......

I see a bit too much cereal and grains in your diet.......

Voguegirl 47,
Keep it up Rays....we Sox fans love it when you beat the Yankees!
Can't help you with the grain questions and good luck on your marathon training.  The closest I've come to running a marathon is watching it.  I'm only a few miles from the starting line of the Boston Marathon.

protein and good fats as well as carb loading with compliant starchy veggies will give you energy!
have your grains at night, those will help you sleep.
