This is true, at least I am not obese.

And.. maybe just switching things up a bit will shift things. I just started incorporating more food due to economical issues so it just might take some time for the fat to disappear.

Thanks for helping.

And...for sure,  I love fish. It is my favorite.

Hi

I am mesomorphic for sure. Maybe more on the leaner side, but I see athletic in me.

Skinny legs, moderate waist, broad shoulders. however, I am only 5'3 so I can easily show a few pounds.

Legs are the most muscular part on me. Friends are constantly saying they wish they had my legs, and here I am complaining.. I want a flatter stomach and lose the chest for heavens sake.

Do you do exercises for your stomach? Some people do them incorrectly and develop a pouch. Very common to happen.

How much stress do you have?

It's not just about height. I'm only 5'1" tall but my "ideal/healthy adult weight" is 132 pounds. I was 128 at my first wedding, and I was underweight. My ribs were sticking out- I was very clearly 5 pounds underweight.

At 132 pounds "ideal size", I'd look darn good at 138 pounds. I just have a much larger build than you, even though I'm shorter. I've got "peasant stock."

Quoted from ABJoe

First, these people are probably not aware of the knowledge that Dr. D. has provided to you.

Second, Even Dr. D. has said that Type O people may feel better short term by going vegetarian or vegan, but long-term do damage without the meat.

Third, about fruit - it is possible that the specific sugar in the fruit you are eating is stimulating cellular detox, which is making you feel so bad.  It is also possible that without doing this "cleaning", you will never lose the weight you think you need to lose...  Also, some of these things don't happen within a month or two...  Food for thought...


Marjorie, these are all good points to consider, and I would add that by subjecting yourself to major swings between veg/vegan and BTD, you're playing havoc with your hormone balances. The connection between feeling bad physically, and emotionally cannot be overstated.

Gut healing, beginning with Polyflora O, may be the greatest factor in getting back on track. It was for me. Bloat, inflammation... I know how awful this is.

Thanks so much. Yes, I understand. I actually appreciate your feedback so much.


I have to keep in mind that eating fish on Dr. D recommendations is a good thing! I dont have to eat red meat if my body does not want it right now.

I would not stray from the lectin profiles or avoids.. I have seen a huge difference in my life since I have cut out avoids. Now, I just need to work on getting more of the beneficials in!

I eat primarily fish, olive oil and veggies, but TOO many or TOO large causes bloating. Bloating stops weight loss. Eat smaller and more frequently, like 4x a day and no more then 2 cups of food max. Just make them all nutritous. Too much fiber for some people (me) causes trouble. Fiber bloats and constipates the begeezers out of me

Maybe you are onto something Mother. Too much of anything cannot be good.

I think I overeat in servings. However, when I cut back, then I dont have the energy to keep going with school, work and gym. Dilemmma..

Do you think calories really matter?

off to bed.

IMHO, nutrient dense food matters far more than calories. I have tried upping calories as I am thin however this backfires on me. I simply cannot eat a large quantity (bulk) of food and feel well. The ONLY way I can eat enough calories to fuel me for the day is to add healthy fats, protein and SOME (not a ton) of veggies. Try this if you want. Have 3-4 oz protein,a regular handful of veggies and 1-2 Tablespoons of healthy fat 3-4x a day. I make my lunch and snack salads at the same time I make my breakfast so I'm only in the kitchen once until dinner. They are 2oz tuna/salmon/whatever, 1 or 2 romaine, green leaf or bibb lettuce leaves chopped small with onion and artichoke,  and a T olive oil on the greens and 1T mayo on the fish. Sometimes I throw 3 or 4 slices of celery/radish/carrot in for crunch. Dinner is also 2oz protein but I usually have another veggie like broc/asparagus/bok choy instead of salad.Salad and an extra veg is too much. Eating the same size meals 3-4x keeps me going all day. Now, if I make it too large, I get a slump instead of energy. Sometimes, especially when I first started this, it felt like I didn't even eat. However, to my surprise, it fueled me perfectly without causing any slumps or bloating. Just know you get to eat again in 3 hours.Too large is known as the restaurant effect. You can eat a whole head of iceburg lettuce for about 20 calories but it will fill your stomach so full that you will get a huge insulin spike and feel stuffed and bloated but didn't eat any calories. Filling your stomach is not the answer, fueling yourself with usable nutritous food is. You are right, too much of any food is not good. This also keeps my hunger and blood sugar VERY stable.

Mother-- thanks for the constant support. I think planning ahead is the biggest issue for me.

have you heard of the ninja chopper? I might get one... then I will stop buying the salad bar items already chopped up.

Today, I posted on another thread.. i had a good workout, then a large salad with half can of wild salmon, veggies and some chicken... probably too much food in one sitting which why I am tired now, but I keep doing this to myself.

so, I ended up chopping more veggies and i feel better that i am good to go for the rest of the day, in general.

fish is my favorite with some veggies, but again, not too many.

back to studying for statistics midterm... ugh!

For me, I would be bloated with that. I would have a small to med salad with half a can of salmon and a piece of celery. Later I would have some veggies and some chicken. Certainly not all in one meal or I'd be tired too. It seems you either starve yourself or gorge, try spacing it out with lady like portions and always know... you will eat again. You don't need to fuel or refill all in one meal

Will try to space out, and thanks again. I need to not worry about the weight and focus on health. That is number one.

I was wondering what your schedule for eating and exercise is.  Do you do most of it in the evening when you have more time or spread it out through the whole day.  Do you have breakfast?  You mention intense exercise, what is your exercise schedule?

It varies with school schedule. I am definitely an hour a day.

I walk to and from gym which is about 2 miles. The classes are either on eof the following: weight training/endurance because it has some cardio in it, kickboxing, hi-impact aerobics, step aerobics.

I aim for 6 days a week which most often happens.

I do eat breakfast... egg whites and veggies typically.

going to try hot yoga again, but not my fav.

Since you obviously get enough exercise   the 5 lb. bit around your middle that you want to get rid of is probably just the way your body stores fat.  I have read that exercising in the morning before breakfast after the mini-fast of not eating while sleeping can cause you to burn more fat but I don't think it's been proven conclusively one way or the other.  Do you drink protein shakes?  I keep reading about them here on the forum and wonder about them, especially the ones that use brown rice protein and might be compliant for me. I thought they might help me get this ratio, "To ensure proper recovery following exercise the National Strength and Conditioning Association recommends consuming 0.8 g. of protein per kg of body weight and 1.8 g of carbohydrate per kg of body weight".

I know that stress can make our bodies hang on to and store fat but I also wondered if a lot of exercise does that too.  Do you know?  The fight or flight thing with the body trying to save up energy for future needs.  Oh well, just me pondering here.

I assume it is more stress, and that your body is working on other things. It'll probably go away when it gets fed enough, and creates gut flora balance. (red meat is a probiotic for Hunters)

Sure, it will def ease up once this statistics midterm is over

and.. I am working on the smaller portions however, it is tough to eat all day. I will need to switch my mentality overall.

thanks for the pondering thoughts, K

Keep going, perseverence will get you there.  Medidate to tune in and your body will tell you what it needs.  I think it harmful to be concerned about weight, we don't know if you are really overweight.  don't just eat beef, we need fibre and preferabbly raw veggie fibres with smaller amount of fruits.  You will destroy your colon if eating lots of beef or fibreless foods.  Eat at regular times if possible, chew well in a relaxed environment.  Read the live food / living cuisine sites, rawsome diet which is helping so many people.  My dental problems only improved when I stopped eating all cooked food and animal proteins, cooked foods turn into starches and sugars very quickly in some people's systems. So does baked flour products.  Also, don't eat too much fruit esp dried fruits.  Lots of greens good ie spinach, sea veggies, kale, avocado for good fats, soaked almonds.  Fast one day per week, which I am doing again; feels great! Keep in touch.
