Good Morning,

The new comments made me smile, laugh and cry from joy knowing that I am on the right path to wellness, finally   With what we are taught about healthful eating, I have always eaten like a type A.

Last night I had a Carl's Jr No Carb $6 burger, with only beef, mustard, onion and lettuce and sweet potato fries (I needed some comfort food, but the burger tasted better).  I ate the whole thing.  To my AMAZEMENT, during my morning 25 minute aerobic work out, I had energy!  The first time ever!!!  I never once felt like stopping and sitting down.  Usually, 1/3 of the way into it, I have to push myself to keep going...but not today!!!

Never in my life have I had energy.  Sometimes I wonder how I am going to make it through the day and can't imagine going on like that anymore.  I've had to use coffee, will power and love for others to keep going.  I'm so happy that now I am learning to eat the right foods that will give me the energy we were meant to have

I'm off to work now.  I am soooo grateful for your support.

Cheers!


This is what beef does for you.  Beef for O's is like the gold standard.  It's one of the best proteins for you. Interestingly, you don't need it every day, but at least a few times per week.

The mustard and ketchup your body can do without. Virtually all sweet potato fries offered in restaurants or packaged in frozen food sections have been battered with wheat or fried in an unacceptable oil.  Keep that in mind.

<3 <3 <3

Sharing with the best of intentions.

P.S.  Why not have beef for breakfast?  We have either beef, lamb, fish, chicken, turkey for breakfast every day.  This is normal for us. <3

Welcome,
A lot of us here have been where you are.  I had thyroid problems for years and finally had my thyroid out (very tiny thyroid cancer due to radiation as a child).  It took me a year to give up my morning coffee but I eventually did it.  I drink Republic of Tea green teas instead now, occasionally mates or rooibus (red tea).
For breakfast I either have eggs scrambled in ghee with nutritional yeast sprinkled on top (tastes cheesy) with some almond butter on the side.  I alternate with chia seed shakes that I make the night before.  I use 2T.organic unsweetened cocoa, 2 T fresh almond butter, whatever fruit I have around (blueberries are especially good, so are bananas, pineapple) 2 T chia seeds and one date for sweetness if it's not sweet enough.  I add liquid from the pineapple or water and blend in a magic bullet.  It thickens up in the frig and is enough for 2 breakfasts.

Hope you enjoy your journey.  Some of us have been here for a long time - mid 90s.

You don't need to eat ALL the beneficial foods listed. It really is OK if you just eat the ones that are familiar to you and readily available at a reasonable price. There are a lot of beneficial foods on my personalized SWAMI that I've never eaten: fish I can't obtain with proper kosher certification, plus many exotic fruits and veggies that don't grow locally and are beyond my  budget when I do find them at places like Whole Foods.

Since you have so many health issues, I'd suggest that you get a secretor test. If you can't afford that right now, you may want to avoid all the "non secretor avoids" along with all the "secretor avoids" until you're able to get the test. Basically, follow the non-secretor diet, but don't include lentils, avocados, or coconut oil. This way you're less likely to be accidentally ingesting foods that cause you problems, and you can heal faster.

If you already have a lot of oats (and garbanzo beans, etc) in the house, go ahead and use up what you've purchased. It's OK to ease into this diet  gradually- don't make yourself crazy! But when it's time to go food shopping again, focus on the foods that you're sure are fine for all Os.

Welcome! you will love this lifestyle. it is not a diet, but a way of life.

Stay focused, and try to get as much of the beneficials as you can.

Great job on the working out and be proud of yourself for looking at improving your overall health in general. This takes effort and you are doing it.

Rice doesnt sit well with me at all, and I definitely manage my fruit. This works for me, but we are all so different.

I recommend lots of veggies and of course your protein.

Good luck

Good Morning and Happy Friday!

I don't have a lot of time, but I just wanted to give everyone an update.  Since I started this about 2 weeks ago, stopped eating corn & potatoes last week, and dairy/soy this week, here's I have experienced. (I had all ready quit gluten 2 weeks prior to finding this diet, but it wasn't helping).  Rice has been the only grain I have been eating and have been doing well with it.  Also, a few days ago, I started eating more red meat and veggies.  

Gas and Bloating - gone
Joint Aches & Pains upon rising - gone
Only Sleeping 4 hours and then waking up awake - gone
Fat layer Around Middle, Adomin & Hips - gone (this one amazes me the most about how the cellulite bumps under the skin are disappearing so quickly like it is melting!)

Thank you too All for your support.  That's what gave me the strength to avoid more foods and eat more meat - a total counter intuitive for me.  I am starting to feel energy like I have never before and I am hoping this is going to help the mental spaciness I have been having for a while.  I am very optimistic that my life now isn't going to have to drag on until the end and that I found the primary reason why I wasn't feeling well.  Again, I cannot say, "Thank You" enough

That's wonderful, LD!  Thanks for the update.


My SWAMI diet is a blend of BTD and GTD Explorer, but I'm not totally compliant.  Also I try to choose foods that have a Low Glycemic index.  DW and DD are A+, probably also Explorer.

Well, after I put my glassed on this morning, I exaggerated on the fat melting off a little bit, lol   It's not all gone, but there is a noticeable reduction of it.  I'm just excited to see some improvement in my condition.

What a wonderful update!

If "all" your fat was gone in only 2 weeks, you couldn't have had much to begin with. Most people see improvements, but find that it takes a much longer time for *everything* to be perfect. Don't be surprised if the changes start to slow down. As long as you're moving in the right direction, it's all good.
