I just read the book and am convinced ( due to the fact that I lost 30 pounds on a low carb diet, but was concerned of the helath risks) that this is the lifestyle for me. I am however at a loss for ideas for a TYPE O breakfast. Your suggestions would be very helpful.
Thank you,
Ron

P.S. Good luck everyone.

 My breakfast choices changed dramatically after being on the diet for awhile. I might have eggs, and some kind of lean beefsteak, chicken, or my own turkey sausage blend. I like sweet potatoes and chicken or turkey. I might have beef soup with big chunks of beef and beneficial veggies. Chicken, or tuna salad. I try to always start my day with meat. I feel less hungry this way, and have more energy than with toast and cheese, or a nut butter, it just depends on what I am craving meat wise.  I don't start my day with cereal, but if I did, I'd use some kind of spelt flakes, rice puffs, and rice milk, with stevia. I used to make a boiled rice pudding to which you can add fruits. However, if your like me, a high carb breakfast spells disaster for my energery and hunger levels for the rest of the day.
 

Hope this helps,

Breakfast was the most dramatic change when I started the Type O lifestyle.  My pre-BTD breakfast of yogurt, wheat germ, and wheat bran had my stomach lining painfully red and irritated.

Many Type Os start the day with meat and vegetables left from the day before.  When I've tried that it makes me feel good in the morning, but leaves me overeating later in the day.  I may eventually adopt this style, but I'm not there yet.  

Some days I make myself an omelet (2 eggs & fresh spinach is my favorite).  Eggs scrambled with grilled onions are surprisingly good.  

But most days this is my breakfast:
I put 1 Tablespoon of rice bran, 1 Tablespoon of ground flax seed, 1 Tablespoon of ground pumpkin seed, 2 Tablespoons for lecithin, and ˝ - 1 Tablespoon of nutritional yeast in a bowl. I moisten it with water or fruit juice. I add 2-3 different fruits (banana, blueberries, pineapple, frozen cherries, and grapes are all good).

Since it is possible to develop a sensitivity to flax, I rotate ground almonds and ground pecans into the mix.  

This is enough like cereal to satisfy my traditional emotions.  It is high fiber which keeps my intestines happy.  The fresh fruit gets my blood sugar up and energizes me for the start of the day.

Howdy all!

I love eggs, meat and veggies for a good start to the day, but sometimes I want something that is like hot cereal.  Here is a favorite that Elizabeth posted on "On The Diet" a while back:

"On breakfasts for those who don't like breakfast (especially the young), I have had good luck grinding 2T flax seed with 1-2T walnuts in a "dedicated" coffee grinder. There are typically some slightly larger walnut pieces in the result. While I am doing that, I pour a bit of boiling water on a large handful of currants (could be raisins or dried cherries or blueberries), then dump in the ground meal, add a pinch of salt, a bit more boiling water if needed, and stir. It is practically instant, and tastes like oatmeal cookie porridge (even though no oats are present). The fruit can vary, but lightly-hydrated dried fruit makes the results more "cookie like." You can also sprinkle a pinch of brown sugar over the whole thing, add ghee, whatever, but the basic is pretty good, and I believe works for both O's and A's."

It took me about 6-9 months on the diet to switch over to meat, greens, and other vegetables for breakfast.  I love it and can't imagine eating cereal for breakfast ever again.

I typically eat the following.  For meat I will have about 1/3 lb of beef, buffalo, turkey sausage, liver, maybe every once in a while lamb. I have big serving of collard greens almost every morning, occasionally kale.  I frequently steam an onion and serve it with lots of olive oil and some sea salt.  Maybe once every week or so I will have some eggs instead of meat.

Breakfast is by far the most important meal. Unfortunately the modern life threatens this and one can easliy be distracted to regard breakfast as something to be squeezed between showering dressing and rushing to work/sending kids home etc. In order to avoid this, I have developed a habit of planning the night before what to it at breakfast in the morning. Leftover veggies and/or meat can be a bed for a couple of organic eggs, or constitue the ingredients of a huge omelette. Or, if there is some stock, beef or lamb, poaching two eggs in it and a side dish of greens like parsley, water cress, fresh mint, arugula makes a really reviving morning feed.

It's all about creativity. O's can have a variety of things. It's just that we should avoid rotuine. Condemning breakfast as a routine kills the spirit and even if you eat the best beneficials, you don't start up the day with energy, whereas even a slice of rye bread topped with ghee, accompanied by fresh goat cheese can motivate you if you prepare them with joy.

It's not always only what we eat, but also how we eat.

Bon apetite,
Yaman

My weekday breakfast is usually:

scrambled egg/spinach or brocolli
rye manna/ghee

or

4 oz. o'soy/1 scoop O protein, 1/4 C ezekiel flax cereal & 1 tbsp dried blueberries

less often, oatmeal or quinoa flakes with nut butter & dried blueberries

I have a mid-morning snack of pineapple juice, egg white powder and flaxseed oil

On weekends I'll have a larger breakfast with eggs & meat & veggies instead of the 2-part weekday routine.

Some of our favorites for breakfast are fresh turkey bacon or sausage, (We're having fresh venison & beef sausage made soon!) spelt french toast & maple syrup, left-over meat cut up small then scrambled in with eggs in Ghee (clarified butter).

It took me quite a while to get out of the cereal/milk/fruit routine.  If you use dried cereals like Barbara's brown rice crisps or others with soy, rice or almond milk, just add some protein powder and a few chopped walnuts to make it more O friendly.  Beneficial fruit or fruit juice still fills out a nice O breakfast.

Hi All:

I recently was reading one of Phillip Day's books titled FOOD FOR THOUGHT.  He suggest eating only fruit for breakfast.  My wife and I have been on this diet for about a year and we like it.  Of course you must eat only fruit within your blood type.  If I remember correctly, it was non-citrus and no bananas.   My book is out on loan so I can't go back and look it up. You eat all the fruit you want right up until noon and give it thirty minutes to digest before eating anything else.  

I think Phillip Days books on health are very good and are very interesting, second only to Dr. D'Adamo.   I have read CANCER: WHY WE'RE STILL DYING TO KNOW THE TRUTH, FOOD FOR THOUGHT and THE ABC'S OF DISEASE.

There was an interesting article in Body and Soul magazine on Eastern recipes with eggs.  Egg drop soup prepared with organic chicken broth, chopped greens and onions would actually make a pretty decent type O breakfast.  You could include shredded meat as well.  Just prepare your soup except for the egg, take the soup off the burner and slowly pour in a well beaten egg.  Stir while pouring to get the strings of egg.  I will miss hot cereal for breakfast when cold weather hits.  I think the soup idea will be a good substitute for me.

I don't know how authentic it was, but I had a Japanese breakfast at a restaurant in San Francisco.  It looked more like a dinner with grilled salmon, rice, ginger and lots of veggies.

Hi there,

I've been on the BTD journey for about 9 months now, although having previously been a vege since my early teenage years I only started to eat red meat about 5 months ago on Heidi's recomendation . I've now reached a stage where I eat beef with mainly green vegetables for breakfast after drinking down a cup of flax & hot water about a 1/2 hour before & have found that -
I really love my breakfast & have lots of energy for the rest of the day.I used to suffer with constipation & a 'bubbly tummy' but that never happens with the above breakfast. I do vary it by changing the veges/cooking styles/oils & sometimes mixing proteins to avoid routine.

I noticed another blog which said that such a large protein breakfast can cause them to overeat throughout the day - which I fully understand. What I have become aware of recently on the BTD is that the H.B. foods we eat in the correct portions leave us highly energised & fully satisfied without being bloated/stuffed. Pre-BTD days I would often eat & eat carbs until I was stuffed- & considered this a 'full' feeling. My point being, one has to learn to recognise & listen to the 'full sensations' one's body sends out. (This is probably quite obvious to everyone else - but it was relatively recent observation for me- doh! )

For my other meals I eat some other protein fish/lamb  & veges. I can have quite a sweet tooth so I take a small container of sweet potato with olive oil/sweet basil & clove & have this as my treat along with some fresh fruit during the day.

Cheryl!
You could try to boil the grains Amaranth (Sec +NSec!), Millet (Sec +NSec), Buckwheat (only for Sec), Oats (only for Sec), Millet (Sec+NSec), alone or in combination in water in the evening.
Once it boils, put down the gas and let it stay overnight.. In the morning the grains have swollen and turned soft. Heat up one portion and add cut apricots, figs, some almonds, walnut and some veggly... and some broken of whole flaxseeds..

I know O's do better on protein than carbo's, but when the winter sets in I can imagine you want some 'hot'  stuff..
I am an A, so I love my Amaranth Buckwheat, Oatgrain porridge. I eat it every day, summer and winter....  
Just an idea to get some vatiation in your breakfast!!!

Thanks,
I'd like to try the steel cut oats.  We have electric crock pots that would be perfect for such overnight cooking.  I hadn't considered mixing in other grains.

Another substitute for hot grain based cereal is to have mashed sweet potatoes.  You can fix a big batch ahead of time and then just re-warm them in the morning.  You can even add banana, maple syrup, and spices to them to make it seem more like standard cereal.   You should probably have some turkey sausage or some other meat with the meal for protein.

I've just started the BTD and have been wondering about daily meals, specifically breakfast.  It would be great if I could get a couple of suggestions of what options there are to eat for each meal of the day.  Also, I know that it is important to get enough protien, but is it possible to eat too much protien?

Hi jfw and welcome to BTD central,
There's a whole thread on breakfast ideas for Os, but I'm sure you'll get more suggestions here.

I really don't think it's possible to eat too much protein. In other places you'll find discussions about problems with ketones, but as far as I know, those discussions don't take blood type into account.

I think for Os especially it's hard to overdo protein.  Dr. D'Adamo isn't into strict ratios for protein, carbs and fat, but I think anywhere from 30 to 40% protein is fine for Os.  You only get into ketosis if carbs are extremely low.  If you eat all the fruits and vegetables we're supposed to have, you won't reach that point, even eliminating all grains, as some Os do, especially non-secretors and those of us with weight problems.

jfw, welcome to the BTD boards!  My little O's do best with meat and eggs for breakfast.  It's hard for me to think that way since I don't eat red meat, but when I put left over meat cut up small in scrambled eggs or an omlet, they really like it.  Sometimes I add a little green onion to the Ghee (clarified butter used to oil the pan slightly) or a little mozzarella cheese as a topper to an otherwise plain burger.  

I swear by the George Foreman grill for O's.  I don't know how I ever survived without one....now I have 3!

I try to plan ahead so we have time for a good breakfast or they would end up eating cereal which would make them happy.  It made me smile the first time my oldest sweet tooth daughter said to me that the above breakfast tasted as good as candy!!!  I almost fell off my chair!

I wish you the best of health with the BTD!

jill - wow 3 george foreman grills i am gobb smacked
how old are you children? and have you brought them up soley on the btd diet?

jfw - i am a beginner O like you
i struggle with the thought of eating eggs and meat first thing in the morning breakfast has never been my thing i go to the gym in the mornings as well so i wouldn't have digested breakfast before working out
i'm still just having fruit and rice cereal for breakfast and soymilk
so i'm not the person to recommend proper O breakfasts

for my lunch i usually make a salad with lots of O friendly vegetables and a can of tuna to take to work with me and sometimes a boiled egg

evening meals are again usually another salad (i use a lot of spinach and sprouts grated carrot, spring onions, tomatos, celery, heaps of garlic and dress with lemon juice and olive oil)  with meat fish or chicken
sometimes roasted pumpkin, sweet potato and yams
or currys made with the above root veges, and greens (spinach and brocolli) somtimes tofu or chickpeas and rice or rice noodles
or stir frys with lots of vegetables meat or chicken or tofu mixed in and rice or rice noodles

for inbetween meals i eat fruit or rice wafers or crackers with tuna, tomato, tofu,etc on
and sometimes i will have a slice of rice bread if i want a standard carb type hit thats when i feel like a comfort food

my O diet is pretty much my vegan diet i was eating previously minus the wheat, corn and beans except chickpeas i have just added meat to my evening meal and eating tuna in my midday meal

JFW,

The Atkins Centre, created by Dr. Atkins - the forerunner of high protein low carb diet, claims that there is no evidence logical or from research to pinpoint negative effects of protein.

If you analyse comments from anti protein health experts they always say too much protein is not good for you. But, they do not specify why. The most they say is that we have not lived long enough on high protein diets and therefore it can be potentially dangerous. But, why???  Where is the risk???
