hello dear, half of mine and a very warm welcome to you, glad that you did choose this way for your healthconcerns, because it's worth...it is one of the best ways I ever saw.
Please have an eye on Peter's book about diabetes and follow here his guidelines; easier for you
instead of LR4YT or ER4YT, those books are merely for people without any *big* healthproblems.

The next step for you, would be fine if you could do as quick as possible the secretortest, to this enables you to do the right choice in the foodconcerns. This test is awailable by NAP, named above.

Don't worry even in this book pinapplejuice is a beneficial but please read the label and don't take some juices where extra sugars are added. Fruitsugars seem to react different
all kinds of fruits and veggies are listed here ,too.
Good luck and once more, welcome to our forums

Hi Cutemom
welcome
I can only offer some general B advice and a bit from my sisters friend (B) who is diabetic as well.
Her way of dealing with it is :
Rather eat beneficial fruit than the juice.
Always eat fat with high sugary things- like nuts.

She eats in general

Breakfast: oatmeal with milk and a bit of fresh fruit for breakfast
- or eggs and speltbread and fruit.
midmorning break: Maybe yoghurt or nuts and banana- berries
Lunch is often green salad with plenty of red peppers, carrots, etc and some protein- either cheese, beans or fish( salmon or tuna)- olive oil dressing
Afternoonmeal: veggies ( sticks of carrot, cucumber, peppers, broccoli etc)(and cheese( cottage or mozzerella) or egg- depending on her breakfast.

Dinner- veggies, maybe rice and some meat.

She eat a lot of turkey and lamb- but does eat a fair bit of beef as well.

She does not not follow BTD 100 % but have given up chicken and the other red flag foods.
- she does not eat any artificial sweetners any more- but indulge once a week in small piece of high qualty chocolate.
She does not drink juice- except for at special ocations.


I would say look at your grains- choose the beneficals over the neutrals.!
And get the book about diabetec and BTD- I can┤t remember how much grains- but if you want to loose weight- cut grains to an absolute minimum !

Look out for weird veggies oils in readymade food- and in your food
that is one of the most important B things.

You should opt only for olive oil, ghee/butter and a bit of flax oil or coldpressed walnut oil.

henriette! wow thanx so much for your advise! I can't tell you how pleased i am!

btwn, i don't understand the gluten thing, i mean i got those instant oats, and written on the box just add water, and it says allergens: gluten, i have no idea if that is okay!

i stopped cornflakes and wheat brans..so oats are fine right?

until i get the book handy, i appreciate your help.

God bless

If you are glutenintolerant well then oats are not a good thing !

BUT if you are just a normal B oats and spelt is fine for you in small ammounts.- spelt contains gluten while Oats very ofthen are made on same factory as glutenrich food= poluted with gluten.- you can get glutenfree oats here in Europe - but they are expensive.

I use some millet, rice and quinoa as well.
Quinoa can be bitter- so wash well.

IF you want to loose weight - white bread is not great
it is not an avoid for B┤s - but a lot of B┤s seem to put weight on very easy when they eat white wheaten bread or get fatigued or other problems.

Why not eat rice instead of bread?
And as I wrote grains are best kept at a minimum if onee wants to loose weight and for a diabetic.

be careful with ricecakes and puffs since they are extermely high gi foods (they convert quickly to sugar) and don't really have that much nutrition anyways.  If you are going to eat grains (which with type 1 diabetes I would highly consider eliminating them) you need to stick with really whole grains, not their artifical puffed versions.

About having a problem with getting the book:
why don┤t you check all the foods in typebase here on this page
- I know it takes a long time....but that is a start
would you like the portions sizes for each food? - I can mail them to you.
I agree with laura on the puffed rice- keep them as aspeciel treat,.
Maybe it is wise to follow the nonnie recommendations ?- when it comes to portions ???

Hi cutemom!

I just stumbled onto this thread. I, too, am a type 1 diabetic, 30 yrs. old. Since starting on the BTD my body has been changing and I have lost weight (I'm 5'9 126 pds!). The best thing for me has been to completely cut out or at least minimize the grains. As a non-secretor, there's not much grain I can have anyway and wheat and dairy are completely out. I found that the heavy emphasis on vegetables and protein are what keeps me in check. Though my blood sugars are not perfect (they never can be, really), I have less ups and downs. I only have the juice for when I have a low blood sugar. I want to encourage you to really focus on the beneficials with some neutrals and give your body time to adjust to the change in your diet! You'll find that you feel a lot better.

Hope this helps!

Hi and welcome. I highly recommend that you get at least two of Dr. Dadamo's books....."Live right for your type" and one of the special health series...."Diabetes". You can order both online from Amazon, and here is their link about international shipping

http://www.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/display.html?nodeId=596184

It say that Amazon Marketplace does not ship to the Middle East, but those are independent sellers on Amazon, not Amazon itself.

I have been diagnosed with severe asthma and allergic rhinitis which just made the asthma worse. I have been following the protocols in the Allergy health series book, and have not used my inhaler in MONTHS . I had been on five different meds. Also, I went from a size 16 to a size 8 in a matter of weeks, and I think I'll soon be a size 6 as my pants are getting loose again. It's funny because the way I'm eating now is the way we ate while I was growing up and I was always thin, until I listened to so called experts telling me that the way I was eating was "unhealthy". Hah! Anyway, I really hope you can get a hold of these two books.

Lola, one of these days when I have enough time, I'll post my BTD story in Testimonials.

cutemom, I hope you can get the books also. Live Right really explains the whole thing, and the Health Series all give step by step directions on how to improve whatever condition one has. Food, supplements, and exercise.

I have not had my secretor status tested, however I decided when I wasn't getting such good results following the secretor diet, I switched over to non-secretor and that's when things took off. So I'm thinking I'm a "nonnie" as it's affectionely called on this board. You're right, everyone here is very, very helpful. It's probably because we all want everyone to feel as good as we do. I need to start posting more to share my good results, instead of just taking. I wish you the best also.
