Considering most hunters are catabolic, I always considered myself underweight at 6ft 160lbs which was my weight when I first stared the blood type diet....I could eat and eat and never gain weight without exercising (lucky me?). I was 10lb 8 oz baby at birth so I was programmed for abundance. Interesting, that once I stared the hunter diet I started to gain weight (15 lbs )and I noticed that my years battling inflammation of my gums ceased and hair began to grow back on my completely bald head after 15 years of total absence.The hunter diet down tuned my thyroid (A bit hyper for years) and tamed my inflammatory response and hyperactive digestion. I feel stronger and have more endurance at this weight and I exercise every day now.

If I could recommend a diamond hunter meal that may help you gain a few pounds, then try hot buckwheat grouts with ghee and flaxseed meal with a sprinkle of agave for breakfast three times a weak

Like Ruthie said a little bit of fat weight is OK... after all you are a female and that is normal. You might have aquired a bit of muscle weight and that is OK too. More muscle mass will only make you stronger and a better dancer for those more demanding moves.

Thanks all for your supportive comments. Yes, I should not be so harsh on myself. I guess having been so skinny once, I started to like how I looked, especially when I put on my leotard!

IssyGirl, actually I have not been a dancer all my life... I have only started to learn ballet at the good age of 35   Before the recent weight loss due to going vegan last year and then switching to BTD/SWAMI, I had always been a bit puffy, despite being a Hunter. Now I realize that having lean muscles is a natural for Hunters so I do want to keep it that way. Perhaps my huge fibroids are making me especially self-conscious around the pelvic area. I sometimes worry if the weight gain is due to the growth of the fibroids. I hope not. Will go for an ultrasound next month to find out.

Captain Janeway, I hope you are right about gaining weight in terms of muscle mass, which I welcome. I did start to exercise a bit more in recent months and this can only be good for a Type O, right? The thought of gaining muscle weight makes me comfortable. I do notice that whenever I eat grains and food with corn/tomato ingredients, I gain weight. That must be water weight and I lose it after turning back to compliance.

And Mikeo, thanks for your suggestion of this hearty hunter breakfast. I tried it once and it was very filling. However, I later found out that buckwheat is an avoid for me. Otherwise it surely would put some extra meat on me

It should be pretty easy to substitute a different grain for the buckwheat...  Just choose a Diamond or Superfood grain and use it...

choose a lower carb content in your overall compliant diet

check out the female balancing protocols

ABJoe, thanks for your suggestion. Currently I try to cut down on grains so....

Lola, Great reminder! Yes, I try to keep the carb content low... mainly keep down the grains...

I have been doing some parts of the protocols... and taking FemBalance and Aromastat, too. Am considering doing some castor oil packs.

Ha!  Well, don't I feel silly!?     At least you aren't dealing with the body image issues that come with being a dancer!  Such a challenge!

And BRAVO for taking that on at such a ripe age!        Ballet is tough!

Oh, IssyGirl, don't feel silly! How would you know anyway? Yes, it certainly is a challenge to the body (and mind) to pick up ballet at such a ripe age   It's an age when professional dancers generally retire! So you can imagine the muscular-skeletal issues I have to deal with these days. But it is such an enjoyment that it's worth all the little pains   Keeps my body more nimble than how I would be otherwise.

haven't really been following the thread but.. sounds like you aren't eating much at all. And if your stomach is growling and you're doing lots of dancing, why would you not be eating?

Plus it doesn't really make sense that you would be feeling really good if you were still hungry.. I mean, at least for me I don't feel my best if my stomach is growling. Just eat more!


What is a mind, if not something to be messed with?
What is consciousness, if not a state to be altered?
If it helps to substitute for the phrase "messed with" the word "clarified" or "purified" or "alchemised" or "beautified", then perhaps my meaning is taken. A mind is a terrible to waste.

woww! what an interesting story.. I have always had trouble gaining weight, my whole family. Even my mom who up until she died, she didn't do much of any exercise and ate whatever, she still didn't gain weight.

ANd I always thought that balding was all hereditary but obviously not! haha

I am wondering if this should be a concern for me... I remember a nurse at a clinic also told me that I am underweight.
Any suggestions?



I made the mistake of going to my local VA clinic today. I went in happy, humorous and confident. I came out angry and self concious. The nurse practitioner there asked me if I was bullemic, Asked me if I do drugs and wanted me to take and AIDS test. I haven't had a partner in almost 3 years.

I'm 5'10" and 144. I recently got over a long term virus that kept me from losing wieght and actually made me put more on when I tried to lose. After I broke it all went back to normal. And the overly healthy lifestyle I adopted while sick made me go down to a lower weight than I was before it all began. I'm not going back there. I feel fine and in a few days I'll be back to my confident self. I'm not interested in what traditional medicine says. I'm interested in what my body says.

Now I'm up at night peeved at myself for going there in the first place. I went to them for years and tried to tell them I had something wrong with me (that virus). They didn't help me at all. I found a way to break it myself. Now they want to treat me like I'm sick now that I'm BETTER???  I'm starting to really have an aversion to traditional medicine..

Me too. Been there.... felt that. I don't go to traditional medicine clinics anymore unless for diagnosis purposes (to monitor my tumor growth.) Other than that, the BTD is my guiding star

agreed.. traditional medicine is terrible. Modern medicine knows how to treat with drugs... and that's about it. How ridiculous.

But drug companies have so much power, who knows when the truth about healing with foods will ever be known

2 days later and I'm over it. Funny thing,  the  nurse practitioner was young and very atractive. She had the kind of glow that doesn't come from trad. med.  I picured her going home and doing a liver cleanse. I bet  she's secretly  frustrated she can't advise people to do what we do (what, I suspect, she even does).  

When I went in that day I was teesing all the LPN's. They had a closed for inservice (from 12 - 1) sign on the door when I got there. Me and several other vets waited outside till they opened up. I immediatly outed them on having a TG party. I said inservice?, yea inservice to ourselves. They all laughed. I said you all could have invited me. I would have like to have been invited to a party with all these good looking women.

I really noticed the diff in myself after I left the building. The nurse prac. was the only downer. The rest of them were nice and couldn't believe I lost 117 pounds from the last time I was there over a year ago. I tried to warn the LPN who weighed me. I said, you're in for a surprise. She weighed me, looked at my chart and then fiddled with the scale some more. She then began to ask me my social security number, DOB etc all over again. She thought I was someone else.  She wanted me to help her do the same.

I was having fun unitl ....

So you agree with my doc as well. How could you betray me like this... haha ...j/k.

I won't post a fat pic online EVER

I don't know what all that is in my avatar. I just chose O non, hunter.

I'm starting to get concerned myself. Seems like the more I eat the faster I lose. I'm going for blood testing next month. Those pants in that pic are even looser and it's only  a few days later. I'm thinking my body has changed dramatically over the several years I had that virus. The new nurse practitioner  mentioned they were treating me for anemia while I was obese (260+).  I had forgotten about that. I would think that also would point to a parasite. I remember it did for me at that time. I'm thinking she mentioned it because I was telling her how I was trying to tell the prior doc it was a parasite of some sort.

I'm starting to think my body was starving (for nutrition) the whole time I was obese. And now it doesn't know the fight is over and is still reacting somehow. When I go back I know I'll be in the 130's. I'll have lost half of my body weight in less than a year.

Yea I feel great. I only regret letting this person rent space in my head even temporarily. When I was sick, my body was really letting me know something was wrong. Now,  I'm not getting even close to that message.  I've never felt or slept better. The only place I'm getting that message is from  people on the outside. I told the NP, they weren't very concerned when I was obese. THAT'S the time they should have been.

artspooner, I get those messages from people on the outside too. Some of my friends/family always signal to me that I'm not eating enough! But I eat all the time, ! I'm a Hunter like you. Yea, I may look underweight to other types of people but then I've never felt better in my life. What I have are lean muscles on a small frame, and that's the "optimum me" as I call my physical body. I was very puffed up before thanks to the inflammatory food I used to eat. Not anymore and I don't regret a bit.

If you're concerned about parasites, you could request a Comprehensive Stool Panel, which is sent to a lab and analyzed for any number of parasites.
