I think I voted some months ago on this issue. Back then I was eating a small amt of compliant grain every day. Then allergy season hit - so I've virtually eliminated grains. And guess what -I'm doing pretty well on the allergy front but best of all I'm loseing weight.



Laura can you tell if I voted? I don't want to mess things up by voting twice.

don't worry about it, I can't tell if you did or not, but you are a different person now, so vote again.  Glad you are no-graining it with success!!! Good to have another A among the crew

I know this is probably not the correct thread... but i have just discovered i am a nonnie...  As a new nonnie, when i never thought in a million years i would be one - i am devestated.  I'm sorry, i know you all deal with it just fine - and i'm sure i'll get there.  I just need to cry a little bit!  AND i need to re-read the book.  I have been functioning as a secretor...

I'm hoping this will clear up the mystery.  But i'm really scared about what i won't be able to eat!  I already feel as though my choices are very limited.  I know....boo-hoo....right?  

Again, i'm sorry - but if i can't come to this forum, where can i turn??

Thanks all - Nancy

Nancy,
Don't be scared about the unknown...  Just re-read the list and adjust as needed.  Take the time you need.  Over time, you will realize that it is for the better and, viola, no more concern.

Nancy,
Welcome to another B nonnie!    You are so fortunate to be armed with this knowledge.  Non-secretors suffer more from avoids than secretors (my impression), and those nonnies who continue to eat like secretors are setting themselves for illness.  However, by eating for your non-secretor status, we can assure ourselves healing and health.  Our bodies very quickly adjust to foods that make us feel good and look good.  It won't be long before this will be second nature to you.  It's worth it.  

I ate as a secretor for several years prior to getting secretor tested, and after I made the appropriate adjustments to my diet, I was amazed at how much better my health was.

I eat a bit of rice and quinoa sometimes, and I think I do fine on it.  

But I definitely can't handle sugar of any kind.  I get headaches like mad, and then have to neutralize the pain with some kale or escarole.

Hi to all!
I know this is an old post, but could someone tell me-if some of you are not eating grains at all, what are you eating? I just had lunch- just green beans and a piece of Turkey and the turkey made me so sick! Does anyone else have problems with turkey? I hate vegetables honestly but am trying to eat as much as I can stand. Mind you I'm new to this. I tried swiss chard last night-it was so bitter! I'm probably  not cooking it right.

most As do well on grains and complete protein combos
Legumes + seeds
Legumes + nuts
Legumes + dairy
Grains + legumes
Grains + dairy
try those until compliant animal protein agrees with you.

Before I got soft water and a purified drinking water system in my house, my
Swiss Chard tasted bitter.  I wrote to the company that made my cookware (All Clad) to find out if it was reacting to something in the pan.  They wrote back and told me to put a little olive oil in the water before cooking.  My Swiss Chard was once again sweet.  Now I don't even have to add olive oil since using water from my drinking water system.

Thanks everyone for the help! I need to find a heavy pan to cook with as mine aren't good enough. I also just read about cutting out the swiss chard stems before cooking so I'm going to try that too!

Since this thread has been revived, I must report that my answer has changed since last year.  I have reduced my rice cakes to one a day, and I now have about 1/3 C soft cooked millet 4 or 5 times a week.

Was the turkey pure natural turkey or did it have the typical injected saline (or ? solution added?  The reason I ask, my A daughter will not eat the injected turkey.  It MUST be natural turkey.  If there are any added anything prior to buying the meat, she'll know it when she eats the first bite and that will be all she eats.

The turkey was bought at Sprouts and ground by them. No additives as far as I know.
I'm waiting on the results of the advanced blood test to see if that can help me understand what I should or shouldn't be eating in any further detail. I live in Phoenix so went to the college downtown in Scottsdale.

Commercially raised turkeys can be heavily dosed with growth hormones to cut the time in half from the egg to the grocery store.  More money for them, bad news for us.  Try and find totally chemical-free meats if at all possible.  Even if no additives have been used in the meat itself, the animal could have been fed routine antibiotics and hormones without it being listed as an ingredient on the store package.

I've found that, when I eat grains (and wheat in particular), my abdomen starts to swell uncomfortably, and I have to end up taking my special intestinal combo of Deflect, astragalus, rose hips and zinc so that I almost immediately start "venting" (to put it delicately).  Then my stomach goes down and I feel great.

It's my all-purpose, personal cleanse.  Doing this routinely has done wonders for my abdomen in general, and it stays much flatter.

I follow the Debra train.  Occassionally I eat brown rice, and now and again a rice cake if I need a "crunchy"....also, once in a while white rice if we are having sushi.

Yes, I eat grain.  Sandwiches from Ezekiel bread and brown rice items like organic "Rice and Shine".  This was before finding out I'm a "Gatherer" in the GenoType Diet which lists brown rice in the limit intake column .  This new book has Millet in the ok foods.  So I guess I'm in for some trial meals!

Has anyone started to relax their antigrain stance in light of the Genotype books? Many of the genotypes allow more grains and sometimes they are labeled as super beneficial.

I am thinking that I need to allow more carbohydrates now that my meat options have been diminished.

But I have only eaten a timy amount in response to the new genotypes and have not suffered ill affects, but have been reluctant to increase either the amount or variety of grains that I consumed.

Any nonsecretors more brazen than me? How have you reacted so far?

Since GTD, I'm actually eating less grain--because I discovered that I'm gluten-intolerant.  But I still enjoy small portions of rice on a regular basis.  Rice is the only grain I eat lately, and I'm working on going with only brown rice.
