After reading the thread about fish oil and flax seed oil I have a question for other teachers.
How many of you watch the amount of oil you eat daily? Including ghee.
My understanding of our blood type in general is that we do not need much oil in our diets as compared to the other blood types.
How many of you eat flax seeds on a regular basis?
Just curious to see if other teachers have a sort of flax seed or flax seed oil regimen.

The Teachers in my house do NOT eat flax seed or use the oil...

I use flax oil daily because it's one of my trio Teacher supplements so I take it in pill form.
Usually one pill with breakfast and another with dinner.

Fish oil repeats on me.  I've tried wild salmon oil but it makes me burp fish oil.  I'd rather
just eat fish... I feel best on flax oil. As for ghee, I don't eat it daily, but maybe 3-4 times a week and I do measure it.  I've eaten it straight out of the jar if I think I've gone too long without it.

Flax seeds...cause a serious blockage in my gut. It's not a fiber my body processes very well. I can only tolerate a small amount if I eat them ground up but even with lots of liquid, flax
seeds can constipate me.. I used to eat flax bread daily but felt chronically bloated from it.  Sometimes I'll add a small amount of flax seeds to a gluten free cookie recipe. I don't eat a lot of flax seeds.  I am happy with flax oil.

I use olive oil on salads.  Coconut oil makes my skin break out.  I love the taste.  Just doesn't
work well for me.

I grind my own flax seed.

I do not count this towards my oil allotment, that is always exceeded and therefore none of the allotment is left to allow me to take oil supplements.

I tried flax seed years ago and found it caused way to much gas, so I bought flaxseed oil and took it regularly for a few years. I ran out a while back, before I started the BTD, and haven't bought it again as I was spending so much on all sorts of other supplements, new foods, SWAMI etc. I did however buy some flax seed as I felt it would be good to have on hand for some recipes I had seen in here. I haven't got around to using it, so a couple of days ago I decided I may as well start taking it again.

I have had terrible digestion (bad gas and reflux, which is why I am following this diet) and just the last few days I had actually been starting to feel like I was beginning to really improve - until I took the flax seed, even thought it was a small amount. It may have been a coincidence but it reminded me how I used to react to it and now I am wary of taking it again. So I'm with you Chloe - I think it's a fibre I don't process well either.

I know I have too much oil in my diet, accoding to my SWAMI recommendations, but I am too skinny if anything and am always trying to keep my weight from dropping. I try to be careful but I love ghee and it feels like one of the few treats I have these days - it is so yum on toasted brown rice cakes and I found some new organic ones that have tamari in them and they are even nicer than the plain ones.

I don't consume flax seed on a regular basis and fish oil repeats on me and can upset my stomach....very unpleasant.  I eat primarily fish for protein though, so I think I'm good there.  I have a funny thing going on with salmon....I can eat it just fine if it's smoked (like lox) or poached or in a salmon cake, but cooked over high heat (skillet, grill, broiler) upsets my stomach and the smell nauseates me.  I think it has to do with the Omega oils being exposed to high heat.  And it's only salmon.  I haven't (yet) found another fish that I react to like that.

I don't really watch my oil consumption that much. I just try not to go crazy. I only consume ghee and EVOO   Usually I cook with a combo of both.

I got flax seed oil when it was at our Grocery Outlet store prior to finding GTD.  I felt an immediate difference for the positive. I also have recently bought some ground flax seed.  I just feel a lot better when I use it.

Thanks everyone for your info! It looks like many of us enjoy more ghee than perhaps is recommended but I don't feel any regrets! I probably consume more EVOO than I should and am now trying to cook more with grapeseed oil. I am eating ground flax seeds in my smoothie..maybe once a week. My doctor told me to start taking fish oil even though I eat salmon twice a week and tilapia or cod once a week. I will see how that goes!
Do any of you teachers have naturally oily skin?
I have always had oily skin and am just now experiencing dry areas at my old age!
Just wondering why blood type A doesn't need much oil?

I have everyone at work liking ghee now - I have some there along with my almond butter and rice cakes for when I get the munchies and they all wanted to know what it was. Everyone liked the taste (even from my slightly burnt batch!) and one of them has even made her own ghee. Almost everyone has had their blood type done, but they still don't follow the diet at all, apart from the one lady who made some ghee
- she is interested enough to try and be compliant some of the time.
I just wish my DH would try to eat better. He is an O and had some initial interest in the BTD, but despite him having a worrying dizziness problem, he eats whatever he feels like most of the time. He did attempt to stay off wheat bread and was eating spelt bread for a while, but he didn't really enjoy it and has lapsed again. He would rather take drugs prescribed by the doctor, which so far have done nothing to help, and is prepared to have a cat scan and lumbar puncture but won't make the effort to try and ERFHT. Grrr - it is so frustrating. I work long hours and get up early to prepare my food for the day - he isn't working at the moment and sleeps late and I think just lives in hope I will prepare his food as well which I can't bring myself to do. Oh well, maybe one day....
Cajun - I have always had normal to oily skin I think - especially on my face. But since menopause my arms and legs particularly have become very dry - like a crocodile at times

I hear you Ladyhawk! My skin has lost most natural oil...just a smidge maybe left on parts of my face. Menopause doesn't help, I know.

Genoma sounds really wonderful - but I'm just so broke. Was hoping to do Swami this month - but it's not going to happen.

I had horrible acne when young - - always had some blemishes up til mid 40's.  

My skin stayed oily  until my 60's. Now sometimes I think I have sand paper instead.

I have been using the Genoma skin care ( cleanser, toner, night , day and eye cream)
for about 2 months. It is so silky and absorbs easily.

That's exactly what I'm experiencing. Dry arms and legs...but I've always had oily skin. My face
is still on the oily side.  Wonder how to send that oil to my limbs

I use rosehip oil on my face every night and pawpaw ointment on my lips, which keeps my face in good condition, but I must admit I completely neglect the rest of my body. Until summer comes along and then I regret not doing it all year long. I struggle to find a cheapish body lotion that isn't full of parabens and nasties. I don't mind spending a bit on my face but that costs enough in itself let alone doing the whole body with moisturiser.

I use rosehips oil on my face too.

Wonder if coconut oil could be used on arms and legs.

I'm a bit late, but I hope you had a very happy birthday Cajun!

We used to lather ourselves with coconut oil, back in the days before we knew the dangers of melanomas, and sunbathe with it on to get a tan faster! Now you wouldn't even consider it, especially down under here in NZ where we are under the hole in the ozone!

Ladyhawk, the coconut oil is just a moisturizer, I keep out of the sun as much as possible.

Hi, I'm a teacher, A+ at that!  4 weeks into the BTD and getting very into it.  The issue at this time however, is that many of my Avoid foods for blood type are Beneficial foods for Teacher???  Can anyone shed some light on that?  Thanks so much,

I'm looking for great teacher turkey soup ideas.  I'm massively craving soup and thinking brown rice, turkey, a few carrots (not a big fan, but can handle them in soup and they are one of our goodies).  Sort of looking for ideas that make good green subs for the celery I'd normally use.  I would normally spend time and play a bit, but I'm dying for a great pot of soup and wondering if any of you guys have come up with some great recipes.
