Well, I actually got my test results today.
Did anyone else (actually) feel excited as they waited for them to be downloaded on the Internet?

I'm not quite sure how this will 'change' my life, now I actually know that I am officially a Secretor but ......

To be truthful, I was hoping to be a nonnie, but no, just one of the 80%

Ha ha ha!  I know the feeling.  I had mine mailed to me.  Opening that letter... I was hoping I could eat Lamb.  But to no avail.  I secrete, therefore I am.

Yes, you're exactly right Olerica, it was the Lamb for me too!!
I guess you are missing some meats too.
It certainly is a change of diet for me but mostly for the better, I have to admit.

I was afraid to look!

But I turned out to be one of the "lucky" ones.

When I told the gal at the local health-food store (who is well versed in the BTD), she said, "I had a feeling about you!"  Apparently, she had a hunch I was a nonnie, because of my weird little health problems.

Which raises the question:  Why does everyone want to be a nonnie?

In my case, I already knew that I had those weird little problems, regardless of how the test came out.  And I had drawn up two lists -- foods that only secretors can eat, and foods that only nonnies can eat.  Boy, did I want to be a nonnie!  (And I'm a vegetarian, so it definitely wasn't the lamb that did it.)

How about the rest of you?  Is it all about the food?

Oh!  I actually am NOT craving lamb.  I just thought it would make it easier for me living with my strapping big "B" secretor hubby.  I really do well on mostly green things with a bit of rice/sprouted grains and soy thown in for good measure.

GO GREEN!!!

Oooh, I remember the excitement when my co-worker and I checked the web every two hours for days!

I had a hunch, I was a seccie. I mean, my teeth have always been excellent, I don't have any health issues that I know of, and I have no reactions to almost any food (except mussels - blech! )
I had a hunch hubby was a nonnie, and I was right. When I have one flu, he has two. When I have one cold, he has three. He didn't have good teeth as a young boy, and he has allergies.
I was a liiiittle unsure about my co-worker, because she had several health issues, but she turned out to be a scretor, too. (She's just a type O who has been a vegetarian since she was 8 years old!!! )

Quoted from Carol the Dabbler
Which raises the question:  Why does everyone want to be a nonnie?


Heh, my co-worker was almost crying, when she got her answer. She so didn't want to be a nonnie. Don't know why, really, but she certainly didn't!
Hubby seemed almost a little offended, when I told him his status, but when I told him all the benefits he had being a nonnie (he could have tomatoes) he was OK with it. Besides, I find the B-nonnie diet easier to fit with a O-sec diet.
I was thrilled to be a secretor. I was happy to be able to have a little more grains than the nonnies - I was SO tired of the restrictive Atkins regime. (Turned out I still have to watch those starches, but if I keep oat and spelt as a weekend treat, I'm OK)

Well I was really worried to be nonnie- but I have good teeth and I am hardly ever sick- so it was not a surprise.
however I would have loved to have some more fun beneficial fruits; blueberries,figs, cherries etc - SO when they are in season I just change into a nonnie and eat LOTS of them

Hey I can have Lamb?? I never even bothered to check because I thought I could have nothing of meat that was not from poultry.

Guess I will be at the Toet-anch-amon restaurant this weekend for some shoarma (kabab) that they make with Lamb meat here. weeeeeeee!!!!!!!  

Oh and for the rest, I am totally okay with being nonnie, I can have coconut, tomatoes, Mango's all things I absolutely love. Okay so I can't have sugar. I can live without.

Now Sandra, did I hear you mention Lamb Kababs!!!! you know that is just my favourite thing.
Fortunately, they are nowhere to be found in Almeria, not Shish anyway.
Still can't believe I'm this secretor person - I've always had allergies, teeth could be better etc.

Ah well, life's tough!! (no LAMB)
At least I know that Tomatilla is eating my share - prefer to chew it myself.....but... thanks Tomatilla, very kind of you.

Well, I'm in for more excitement. Posted off my husband's test today, so will have to wait about 3 weeks for the results.

Which is the best book for the most accurate food list for this secretor???

I think being an O nonnie with extra allergies bummed the HECK out of me.  I mean, no sugar, no maple syrup, absolutely no cheese.  It sounds like the food list for A nonnies is better than O nonnies!  Anyway, what we are is what we are....but I'd bribe the gods to be able to have sugar occasionally.

Not thrilled about the health stuff, either....but it could be worse.  That is, I could have NOT learned about this and continued to add health problems (like my folks, whom I suspect to be nonnies, too)!

Well, it came to the crunch last night!! Husband said "Get that leg of lamb out the freezer, that we didn't eat at Xmas!!"  Well, just had to do it, he sounded kind of stern. So, today it was roasted and dare I say 'eaten'. Naughty but nice!!!

Where is the list for those of us don't know our status but have a hunch?  
Is the list in one of the books?

I am curious to know my status, but it is very expensive to have the test done and shipped from Canada.    

Cheers!

The most up-to-date information is on the typebase4 on this site.  You could look at the differences in the food values between secretors and non.  But it's no guarantee, of course.

WAH!

I have bad teeth... always have.

I have allergies... always have.

I did well on "nonnie" diet for over a year.  From that I learned I can cheat and not drop dead on the spot if I eat tomatoes or lamb or black tea.  I used to love black tea... I find I don't care for it anymore.

I don't think I can give up tomatoes.  I would rather have salmon over lamb.

It's back to mind games for me.   OK  I promise no tomatoes for two months.

No promises on lamb until I finish up what I have.

At least I get corn.  I can't go to a Mexican restaurant and NOT do the tortillas.  OH WAIT!  and dip them into the WHAT KIND of salsa?????  Major bummer!


It is what it is so I'm dealing with it.
