Hi everyone!  

I was just wondering about fruit.  I am currently eating pineapple or a banana in the morning.  I seem to do okay, but still have an anxiety attach every time I eat it.  You see,  I have been on the Atkins diet or Meat and Egg diet on and off for years.  I am afraid of all fruit and sweet potatoes too!!

Also, does anyone snack in the afternoon??  Can you give me any ideas!!

Thanks!

fruit is excellent in the mornings....why are you letting Atkins give you anxiety attacks about fruit

Walnuts fresh out of the shell is a good snack in the afternoon

I save all my concentrated carbs such as fruit, sweets, grains, and starches until late afternoon/evening.

I would put the Atkins Diet aside from my mind.  

I'll grant you that he hit the nail considerably on the head for Type O's, but his diet is a sheer disaster for A's and just about everyone else.  

The man recommended pork rinds as a routine snack, for God's sake.  He might just as well have recommended blood letting and skull trephination.  

Also, he did eventually keel over shovelling snow in his driveway, you know.  I can't help but wonder if he was a Type A, B, or AB...

Thanks for all your replies.  I know, I know I should forget about atkin's, but he helped me so much!!  I was a real mess before him.  I was a VEGAN and felt lousy.  I could not figure out why I felt so bad.  Now I know.

I still have serious problems with my gut, brain fog, depression, anxiety and the list goes on.  I am going to give ER4YT my all.  I want to feel better, I am sure like everyone else.  I will let you know how I progress.

Thanks again!!

P.S.  any menus you can pass on??

Check out the Home Page, Blood Type Diet Recipes.
Congrats on getting away from being a vegan. I think (I think) O-nonnies are the most meat-needing of us all!
I agree that just-shelled walnuts are a great portable snack.
Actually, I prefer to "snack" on cubes of rare beef, or cold salmon or sardines or salmon out of a can.

napa4us, welcome! You have made the best move for your health! There are many ex-vegans and vegetarians, (myself inc.) who are finally getting the nutrition they need....your diet will be more" paleo" than mine, as I a,m a secretor and can have more carbs, or different kinds, such as grains and goat cheese once in a while ...whereas nonnies can have avocadoes!! Lucky! keep reading the boards, you will learn much!

napa,

Okay, I was a little harsh back there, but I'm still glad that Atkins did help you so much.  However, there are significant problems with it, even for O's.

I enjoy a fresh pear or a glass of pineapple juice in the afternoon. An alternative is dark chocolate, at least 70% real cocoa!

Thanks Debra for the info on walnuts, I will try it.  As for walnuts, how many are in a serving for nonnies. I know we need to watch our fat intake.

We went out and did a lot of things with friends this weekend... my coffee friends.  They think I am crazy not drinking coffee.  I was the coffee snob girl, I always had a big mug with me every where I went.  I am trying to like tea, but  having a hard time with it!!  Any good tea alternatives?

Thanks for everyone's help!  I really feel welcome to this group!

If you've tried green tea and don't really care for it, try it with 1/2 tsp of unsweetened cocoa powder and 1 tsp of ghee. Pretty darn good (imo). Nothing I've found completely takes the place of coffee, though. You could also try roasted chickory root. I sometimes mix that in with my coffee (hey, I'm an A) 1:1. Both are bennies for me.


Let go of resistance; feel appreciation for what is, and eagerness for what is coming.

There are wonderful white/green tea blends that are not as bitter as green alone.  Perhaps you are letting it steep too long?

Also, LOVE your fruit and sweet potatos!!!  Cherries are finally in season and are a wonderful quickie snack.  I have also found that pineapple and cherry juice with soda or seltzer water is very refreshing and a wonderful replacement for people who lived on sodas.

You may have to spend a few weeks fighting the atkins thing, but pretty soon, your body will tell you exactly what to eat...you just have to listen for it.

Becky,  I tried the seltzer water and pineapple juice today and about spit it out.  What ratio to you mix it, I think I put to much seltzer in.  Maybe I will get some cherry juice and try it.  

I have eaten cherries everyday!! I love them... on Atkins it is a no no.  I love being able to eat fruit again, I just need to make sure I don't over do it!  

Thanks!!

P.S.  I have noticed in the last couple of days my stomach doesn't hurt after a meal.  This is wonderful!!!!!!!  I usually could feel exactly where my food was as it was digesting.  It is worth it!!  It is worth it!!  I don't need coffee!!  I don't need coffee!!

You only need a little soda in the fruit juice......pretty much just to make it bubbly.  Personally, I have a 32 oz cup I fill with about 3/4 of a cup of soda.....the rest is for ice and juice.  

Just experiment with it.  I find it refreshing because it is not as sweet and heavy as juice can be.

Next glass you make, just us a good size splash and go from there.

Becky..  thanks I will try that.  I haven't had much luck finding a juice I like.  When I go to the store I am going to look for cherry juice.

I am having a hard time with fruit in general.  When I start eating it, I can't stop.  I get huge cravings for it all day.  Yesterday I bought a couple of pounds of cherries and I  ate almost all of them myself.  I have no self control.  I had an eating disorder growing up and I hate feeling out of control.  I think I will lay off the fruit for a few days and let the cravings subside.

I hope everyone has a great day!!  We are going to Lake Powell (southern UT) this weekend and I am packing all my beneficial foods!!

This is a trick that works for me...prune juice. Half a cup in the morning before breakfast; it gives me my carbs for the meal when I am trying to drop a couple of lbs, also I like the taste. If you have a sensitive gut, try to cut the glass 50/50 with water.

napa,
try a slice of compliant protein every time you feel a craving.....it works!

but first drink a large glass of water........just in case it is only dehydration....our body has many cries for water!

have you read the book?

Howard,
Thanks for the info on prune juice.  I like it too.  Does it stop the cravings for more fruit?  I have been on some type of ketosis diet for so long, these cravings kinda scare me.

Lola,  Thanks for the info on protein snacks for cravings.  I am cooking up some non- hormone beef right now and some hard boiled eggs.
I haven't read the book about water.  I will look for it at my library.  
I want to thank you for helping me.  I don't know where you store all the knowledge you give.  You are truely a blessing to many!!

Have a great night everyone!!
