I thought hommus was ok for A types? rats!


When working with the BTD or GTD, the name of a product isn't as important as the ingredients in the product.  If you are a fan of hummus, it wouldn't be too difficult to come up with a recipe for making your own, using compliant ingredients.  My daughter makes her own, using organic beans that are good for her genotype.  In her case, she uses Great Northern Beans instead of garbanzo and almond butter instead of the tahini.

This is a creative and empowering way to approach our food choices.  No need to deprive yourself of things you like if they can be reformatted in a way that is still good for you!  



Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are.
Let me not pass you by in quest
of some rare and perfect tomorrow.

What a neat little program! This may come in handy sometime for a person who wants to get an early start!

Reverse T3 is also an important thyroid hormone to get tested. According to my doctor, it is the most important one.

Will power alone does not work when you have a chemical addiction. I have just read 'sweet poison' by David Gillespie and he says you will have to go through a  withdrawal period prior to giving up sugar for good. Moderation does not work with addiction and as I am an all or nothing type of gal I am cutting sugar out completely and believe me I'm getting those withdrawal symptoms today but it will be worth it to be free of this demon once and for all.  I have several coping strategies in place, so far so good. I am determined to be 100% compliant.  

More power to you, Sulis. Just hang onto that attitude!  Coping strategies are super duper diamond things to have in hand in a lot of situations! Just keep on going, gal!

I'm back in hormone hell though, this is week 3 of the period from hell and no sign of it ending. I'll be booking that endometrial ablation procedure for sure. Changing my diet over the last few months has not done anything to alleviate it unfortunately so I have to resort to surgery

Ablation was one of the best things I ever did. I just wish I hadn't waited so long...

Have you had your hormones tested?  I am assuming you have endometriosis which is a condition of estrogen dominance.  My sister has/had that, had her ovary removed.  I have read endo is fueled by insulin resistance.
I read a positive testimony online last night on a low carb forum from a lady who says she started losing weight again from doing intermittent fasting..... it helps reduce insulin.

I've read good things about ablation, hope you feel better.

I have heard from some other women that it's worked well for them as well and I don't want to wait now!

I don't have endometriosis but I have some small polyps and a couple of fibroids which are also small. I had then treated a while back (D&C, cauterization) but mow they're back and I'll be having the ablation to stop these lengthy, heavy periods. Meanwhile I will continue with my low carbing and sugar removal. I feel so much better for it already

If I'd been bleeding for 3 weeks straight, I'd look at herbal options before considering surgury, and then I'd research everything I could find about the procedure my doctor reccomended  before scheduling it.

I'm not saying you shouldn't have this procedure done- I'm saying you should research the procedure itself, the possible complications, treatment for those complications, and alternative treatments for the condition before doing anything.

I tried everything prior to ablation, including waiting too long, . I had no complications and was back to normal in 2 days., I also have 2 small fibroids but they haven't grown in 3 years, actually they are shrinking which I was told happens the closer you get to menopause. Well.. it's been since May, maybe I'll be there very soon. Good luck

I've tried herbal supps in the past with no real benefit and because of the polyps I'm not a candidate for the Mirena coil which is working well for a friend of mine.

My eldest sister has had the ablation with no problems but I have done a fair bit of research on the procedure and my gyno gave me some literature on it as well so I wanted to really check it out before deciding to go ahead with it. I haven't booked it yet as I have some more questions for my gyno but I am just so over these three week bleeds with only a 20 day break between them.

I was eating waaay too many carbs IMHO. I'd switched to gluten free bread but it was too easy to snack on it after dinner. I do eat rice cakes but no more than four a day usually with some hommus spread on them.

I don't know if it has been said earlier but hummous (chickpeas) is a metabolic inhibitor for A's. Cut that out. I used to do the same just living off hummous and rice cakes and had weight gain now I can eat rice cakes and eat and artichoke spread that tastes like hummous with no weight gain .

Try eating in an eating window- eat your blood type food over period of 5 hours and fast the rest of the day.  Try Fast 5:

I've hit 86 kilos, my heaviest ever

why is my weight going up so much on this diet??? I've cut out junk, I'm exercising and I haven't touched alcohol.   From today I've been sugar free and I've cut out processed carbs to see if it makes a difference to my weight, I'm craving them but not caving so far but I'm concerned about eating soy as the possible cause, one of my friends told me that she gained a ton of weight by eating a lot of soy products, has anyone else experienced this?

I wonder if needing iodine is at the root of a lot of your problems. Please do some research on it if you haven't already.

Sometimes something else is going on in your body that could be making your diet complicated.  When was the last time you had a complete blood work up?
