Check out the candida thread--there are lots of ideas. At one point I drew up a list of all I could eat, and how many calories in each--I found I added a bit of extra oil (ghee and flax oil) along with pretty hefty protein servings to get by. Now, back in balance, I need to worry about portion size again! I made some great ground almond, cocoa, egg, xylitol custards along the way (baked in an egg coddler--sort of like a molten chocolate cake).

I would strongly recommend that you go on a major -- major -- cleansing and probiotic regimen, coupled with Dr. D's Intrinsa intestinal rebuilding supplement.
There's a truly great pair of products for cleansing that I llike, as I'm an O-nonnie just like you, and I've had to do the same thing. The products are:
1) CleanseSmart by ReNew Life, and 2) ParaGone, also by ReNew Life.
The first product clears out all toxins from the major channel organs of the body, such as the liver, intestines, kidneys, lungs, gallbladder, skin, and so on. You might want to do this product twice in a row, with each session running about a month, and a break of however many days in between cleanses that the product manufacturers recommend.
The second product kills not just candida, but also any other parasites that may have accumulated inside of you. And, since you're an O-nonnie as I am, it's a sure bet that you probably have major candida and, even, bacterial overgrowth within your gut and, perhaps, overgrown into your surrounding body tissues.
Again, if you start noticing real improvements on this regimen, I would keep cleansing until you notice no more improvement, and then start taking
1) Dr. D's blood-type-specific probiotic supplement -- FloraMore -- and 2) his probiotic feeder supplement -- Arabinogalactan -- until you notice improvements.
Finally, I can't recommend two other products highly enough:
1) Deflect, to flush out all the harmful selectins from the body, and 2) Intrinsa, which contains the much-needed butyric acid to heal your poor, embattled gut cells.
Those look like some good formulas, but I encourage everyone to read labels carefully to spot avoids. There are ingredients that some blood types may not be able to safely consume. In that situation, people could read the ingredient list and create their own formulas, substituting a few things where necessary.

Although I haven't has a secretor test done, I too have IBS-D and I am intolerant to carbs & glucose as well. I too was starving all the time just eating meat and veggies with a little nuts. The trick is to eat more FAT. Don't be afraid to add extra olive oil on your salad and ghee on your veggies...and I eat the crispy skin on the chicken too...yummy. I had a bit of digestive trouble in the beginning so I would suggest just start adding a little more each day. Good Luck.
