Hi soccermom and welcome in this forum,
if you have weight problems skip wheat and corn as also gluten in spelt, kamut, barley and rye. You could be a nonnie and need a diet low in grains and rich in fowl and fish, there is something as 25 items that change value for As nonnies and secretors. Amaranth, quinoa and oat as rice should be safe in small portion.
Keep the carbs low and in the evening to be more relaxed in your sleep.
Every relaxing activity in your free time as walking, yoga, taichi, meditation and alternate nostril breathing is a step forward to your health and weight goal.
best wishes Maria Giovanna

As noted by Maria, it depends. A healthy type A secretor can enjoy a certain amount of corn and wheat. Non secretors should stay away from corn and wheat. Reduction of corn, wheat and gluten use will be helpful with your weight loss.

Again, it depends on the ingredients listed on the bread. Many gluten-free items contain avoids for us A's like potato starch.

Hi soccermom, if you are a secretor have all your beans (also canned by reputable brands); they fill a lot as the grains, but are rich in fiber, minerals and vitamines. You need to keep low wheat and corn, but you can eat it sparingly and try you preferred recipes for tofu !
Best wishes !

Soccermom, the thing about beans (and specifically tofu) that I've found on my quest to lose weight is that the suggested portions should be followed carefully. Beans have a lot of carbs and calories, which if you are eating tofu at more than one meal a day, may be too much of a good thing. I believe the portions for beans (soy included) are 5-7 portions per week--at least for an A secretor--and soy becomes an avoid (I think) for A non-secretors, which is another good reason to get your secretor status checked, but I digress.

In a nut shell, make sure you are not eating too much of a good thing because that will also hinder your weight-loss efforts (I know from what I speak!).

Hi Soccermom, avoiding wheat, even though it is neutral for secretors will really make a difference in speeding up your weight loss. I ate as a secretor and enjoyed weight loss and less achey joints and was very pleased. Once I found out I was a non-secretor, and gave up wheat I lost another 5 lbs. effortlessly. Plus, the "jiggle-ly" feeling on my ribs and in front of my bra under my arms disappeared! Ya-hoo!

Drea, soy is a just neutral for nonnies. You gave me a fright when you said you thought it might be an avoid, but I am glad you wrote that because it sent me clicking away in typebase, and it is always good to have a refresher. In fact, I had been thinking honey was an avoid for me, but as I clicked away, I found it was neutral. So thanks! Now when I make iced green tea with honey for my O son, I don't have to feel like I am sneaking a sip! p.s. to Drea, you sound like me, I have 3 dogs and a horse. Gotta love our critters!

Oh, Soccermom, try to reduce your stress, us A's really store the pounds on our belly if we are stressed. The alternate nostril breathing really helps, if you are not too stressed to remember to try it! Maybe practice in the car on the way to pick up kids from soccer practice(usually a stressful time) just be discreet about it, so you don't look like you are picking your nose! ! I just kind of lay my finger on the side of my nose along the bridge, as opposed to the pinch method. Also a quiet walk with the dog is great for stress reduction. Get enough sleep too, which I know is tough with kids and all that needs to be done. Hang in there, the weight will come off, plus, you will start feeling so good, that you will have more energy, and move more, and lose weight that way!

Any suggestions for breakfast? I usually have spelt cereal, soy milk and berries. Grains have been such a big part of my diet. Thanks

Over time, I've pretty much cut out grains from my diet, especially at breakfast. Grains (in any form) make me sleepy, so eating them (if I do) at dinner makes more sense.

Eggs and turkey bacon or
Curried Lentil Soup with greens (just made a batch this morning) or
Sauteed tofu with greens or
Yogurt with dried fruit and nuts


The above is what I often have for breakfast.

Make sure you are drinking at least one, if not two, cups of green tea. I've noticed that green tea really curbs my appetite (although I am not caffeine sensitive).
