I was wondering about the Genotype Vegetable Protein Amounts for Warriors.
Please, I have already asked this question ...I would so appreciate clarification of the below questioins, however no one responded to my first post.

The book states nuts/seeds 1/2 cup; and nut butters 2T, with a frequency of: at least 2 times daily. I have 2 questions:
1. This category includes beans and lentils as well, but lists no serving size for them. Would serving be the same as nuts or possibly unlimited? The book does not quantify beans/lentils.
2. Also, concerning nuts/seeds, Can I really eat 1 cup of nuts/seeds daily?

Thank you!~~Kaye

This has been discussed online numerous times. The general consensus is that raw beans are like "seeds". If you get 1/2 cup of seeds, you could otherwise have 1/2 cup of raw beans- which of course you'd cook first, and then you'd end up with about a cup of cooked beans.

Yes, you could eat a cup of nuts daily, but it may be more satisfying to eat half a cup of nuts plus a cup of beans, or a cup and a half of beans and 1/4 cup of nuts, etc. Also, with those words "at least" in there, you could eat even more nuts and/or seeds if you're still hungry.

Just a word of caution regarding portion sizes and the  GTD book: use some common sense in applying the guidelines. This same book can be read by a 100 lb. 5' tall woman or a 250 lb, 6'6" tall man. Obviously, bigger people need more food than smaller people.  If you follow the larger portion sizes, but you're a smaller person, you may gain weight or fail to lose needed weight.

BBB,

why not get a SWAMI, and have it personalize your plan for you

Thank you so much Ruthiegirl!!
Before posting, I did acturally search the forums first, sifting for days, and could never find an answer...so again, much appreciated.

I honestly have run the gambit on finding a suitable way to eat, so much so, that I am practically afraid to eat anything....hence my concern for portion sizes, I feel like I don't know how to feed myself anymore because I have read ssooooooo many books with conflicting theories. I am not sure I am able to connect food with common sense; Sad but true.

And Lola~ I do intend on getting SWAMI one of these days, maybe as a Christmas gift to myself

Forgot to add that the beans/lentils are important since I don't eat meat, very little fish/eggs and am currently dealing with an iron deficiency without anemia.

With vegetable sources of iron, it's important to have some vitamin C with the meal to enhance iron absorption. Some raw veggies or fruit with the cooked beans is adequate- you don't need mega-doses of C to help you absorb iron.

OK, you're taller than me, but have a much more slight build than I do. (At 5'2", my goal weight is 133, but I'm currently 25 lbs above that.) With your goal weight being around 125-130, you probably need somewhere along the smaller end of the portion size range. It seems that you can have fish 3-4 times a week, and poultry (turkey is neutral) up to twice a week, so I'd say you can probably have animal protein about 4 times a week. Then when you add in the cheese and egg servings, I'd guess you could have some form of animal protein about once a day. You don't have to have animal protein every day if you don't want to. I'd suggest 3 portions of veggie protein on days you don't have any fish, eggs, or dairy (or if you only have a teeny amount of dairy, such as a tablespoon of yogurt in salad dressing.)

That makes perfect since. If I'm consuming no animal protein, I can have 3 veg proteins for the day.

Now what about this scenario: If I were having an egg or a piece of fish on one particular day say for.. lunch, I would not need to worry about any vegetable protein for the whole day? Or, is it:  since I can have vegetable protein at least 2 x daily, I would consume the vegetable proteins in the other 2 meals for the day outside of lunch since I had animal protein at lunch.

Thanks in advance for the clarification.

SWAMI will tweak your diet to help correct that iron deficiency---- get some floradix iron supplement will not cause constipation.

Get yourself some methylcobalamin ( and folic acid)  this is the active form of B12. I like Dr. D's but you can find others similar least amount of additives the better.


Thorne probably makes a good one.

Chlorophyll might be good too.

"vegetable protein at least 2 x daily"

My interpretation of "at least" is that regardless of how many eggs or fish you consume in the day you should attempt to have have no less than 2 servings of vegetable proteins. If you so choose, you may have 3 or 4 serving of vegetable proteins on top of the recommended levels of fish and eggs (instead of just 2).

If you eliminate other sources of protein from that are recommended in your diet, than you probably need to have 3 servings of vegetable protein.  You may want to have 4 or 5 servings of vegetable protein.

Remember that the serving size of nuts and nut butters is fairly small.

peas are high in C. they are also a component of vegan protein powders.
