Quoted from Sky
because he's a school teacher, thinks the diet is foolish,


  I have respect for teachers, but you reminded me of something....One of my husband's sisters is a teacher and she thinks we're insane.  She is obese (as are the other sisters) and has jumped from Weight Watchers to Atkins to South Beach to this, that, and the other.  She never loses weight, and doesn't let us forget it, but will never in a million years ask us about our diet.  Why is it so easy to accept South Beach but not BTD?  It's just a different diet in their eyes.  Why not just give it a shot?     She'll complain about her weight but won't even once say, "So, how do you manage to stay under 135 lbs?"

Reading Dr. Wayne Dyer's "The Sky's the Limit," he described "authoritarian" thinking.

So the person thinks they know everything, and is so convinced of this, that anything that does not fit into their world view, is immediately considered outside of their realm of acceptance.

Both my parents (both school teachers) are this way. Makes it quite difficult for them to get along with each other, and me with them.

Must also explain why they have so few friends.

Maybe Oprah will finally be able to do it...don't know her blood type.  Bouncing up and down with weight can be really hard on the body.

It is possible, Littledonsie.  Sometimes it takes removing something from your diet for a while before you realize what it was doing to you.

I accidentally voted "Secretor Do Poorly with Grains", but I meant to click the "Secretor Do Well with Grains".
I've never noticed any problems. I'm an IBS sufferer and cutting my avoid milk/dairy products out of my diet helped me tons. Grains don't instigate cravings, or any other negative side effect. I'm only 26 though. I'm sure this will probably change as I get older.
Having said that, I still limit my grain intake. I may have one toast in the morning, and sometimes a sandwich for lunch. That only makes 3 slices of bread per day max! (and always from the beneficial list). I find that if I don't eat grains in the a.m. I'm hungry aaaallll day long. So I make sure I have the little bit that keeps me full.

I don't know if Im a non secreter or not but when i went on the no flour no sugar no salt no kidding diet"high voltage diet" I did very well. Grains are allowed but only how God made them not in breads and flour. So you can have brown rice and oatmeal not brown rice bread and oatmeal muffins etc. Their hidden in a ton of condiments and other foods too so you had to read labels like a hawk. She also suggested even in the purest form keep grains to a serving a day 1/2 cup to 1 cup depending if your having it for breakfast or dinner. I could actually breath see think and had energy on that lifestyle and could taste the real taste of food without the excess salt sugar and perservatives that are on everything. Weight just fell off my body. If I combined Type A witch i just found out friday believing and halfway living the Blood type B diet for the last 5 years but due to pregnancy the test revealed the truth thank god else I would of never been a vegetarian on my own thinking I thrived on dairy and lamb now I can actually lose weight easily, with the high voltage guidelines the results could be awesome.  One big concern Im over 6 months preganant how do  I get all the extra calcium and protein on the A diet??

You really shouldn't have any problem.  My opinion about protein during pregnancy:  perhaps different people (blood types?) need different amounts.  It is very, very difficult to get "enough" protein (the 90+ grams a day they recommend) on a vegetarian diet.  That's a lot of nuts and lentils.  Chicken, turkey and fish help a lot (no chicken for me, though, as a Warrior), plus you can eat eggs.  

My midwife isn't happy with the amount of protein I eat. I'm happy with a bowl of beans.  She said I need two or three bowls to get enough protein for that meal.  Often when she'd ask if I was eating my 90 grams a day, "I'd simply say, 'I'm going my best, and I feel good,'" knowing I wasn't getting that much.  I just followed the BTD!  And I managed to gain 55 lbs (*sigh* I'd like to NOT gain that much this time)and have an 8 lb 10 oz baby with no dairy and very little meat.  I don't think a pregnant A needs as much protein as they recommend.  I'm getting more this time because I'm eating dairy, as I wrote you in another post.

Can you tolerate dairy?

Do not know my secretor status, but gave up dairy and wheat and feel so much better, especially sinuses and nasal allergies which have plagued me forever. I do eat spelt, rye, etc.

Hi there and welcome to our community.
You ask about secretor and non-secretor. You will find the explanations of what these mean in the Live Right book. To be tested you either find a path lab which accepts a saliva sample from you, or a lab who does a blood Lewis test. they are both simple enough to do once you have found the resources. Other people will advise you about resources in your area. cheerio
