albumin as I know it is found in eggs (that's the white or clear part). What way do you suggest to eat more albumin Lola?

I found a product recently called "Just Whites" that are powdered egg whites. Anyone know how to use such a product?

==An interesting medical side note: Albumin is commonly tested in blood. It is viscous (think of the raw egg white) and helps to suspend nutrients in the bloodstream.

I see what you mean now, Zola, thanks!
their nonnie status permits a bit more animal protein sources, too.

Thanks so much for the concern!  

I'm one of those fortunate ones that never gets sick.  Haven't had a full blown cold or flu in so long, I can't remember when.  I just don't get colds, flus and sinus stuff.

I'm 55 and haven't been to see my general MD for going on 2 years--haven't needed to.  I did recently make an apptointment for basic bloodwork, etc. though and once in a while I have a sleepless night.

My biggest problems are like I said above, an occasional sleepless night, a little constipation here and there and a some fleeting aches and pains.  I'm truly blessed and I want to keep it that way!

I used to eat *health food* back in the 70s.  I had friends that ate that way.  I feel like I'm coming full circle and I'm thrilled about it--can't get enough information!  I love the internet--but I spend too much time on it.  It's been raining here for a week so I don't feel as guilty  

Thansk for the welcome!

I'm following (mostly) the Arnold Ehret plan for eliminating toxins from the body for a few weeks--(using compliant foods).  Then, I'm going full bore on the A-Nonnie ER4YT eating plan.  Arnold's plan doesn't call for meat, which is dificult but not as bad as I'd thought.  It's called The Mucusless Diet--gross name but says it all.  According to Arnold, animal products cause mucus in the system (not to mention turns it from alkaline to acid) (written years ago) makes sense to me.  The jist is, that disease cannot exist in an alkaline system but runs rampant in an acid system.  Fruits and veggies make the system alkaline,  thereby the elimination part.

Anyway, that's my story and you know the rest...

It's a fast after around 6 pm till 10 or 11 am the next day.

Lunch is a lettuce salad with a few fresh veggies, olive oil and fresh lemon juice and a healthy helping of fresh veggies that have been roasted or stewed with maybe some toast or ry krisp.

Dinner is some fresh and stewed fruit, with either cottage cheese or mashed ripe banana.

Sounds so plain--and it IS!  But I'm adjusting to it and I feel pretty good!  I have had a little meat and a little chocolate,though.  

I also drink prill water, decaf green tea, some coffee and an herbal calcium tea.

Life is good as an A-Nonnie  

Now, if the sun would just come out....and I'd get my arse out in it!

now you can take blood type into consideration and make it right.
each blood type has its own catacteristic acid/alcaline issues.
BTD is balancing in that respect.

I'm happy to be a nonnie!  When I thought I was a secretor, I was able to justify to myself why I could still eat avoids almost on a daily basis (as long as I was throwing in a lot of beneficials and neutrals).  My idea of "following the BTD" allowed for quite a bit of lee-way, and . . well . . it wasn't working!    

Once I realized that I am a non-secretor and came to understand all the implications for myself, I opted for the 100% version of the BTD and never looked back.  The only avoid I am aware of haven eaten in the past 6 years or so, is a tablespoonful of Creme Broulette at a big celebration dinner a couple of weeks ago!

I am way healthier than I ever was in my life.  Every aspect of my life has been improved, and it never ceases to amaze and delight me.  



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.

I'm glad you are enjoying your diet. I wouldn't have it any other way myself. The A secretor diet in ER4YT did not fit until I read LR4YT shortly after I read ER. Interesting thing is according to the body type diet, the A nonnie diet is very close to the thyroid diet according to Carolyn Mein in terms of the best types of dense protein allowed. Interestingly though the thyroid body type profile fits me to a T.

Scout -  4 lbs is grt.  Grt work on the cleansing too. Tell us about Prill water.

Victoria - me too.  I was doing OK on the secretor plan, but being a nonnie is a heads up signal. It answers a lot of health issue questions for me - that made it easier to adjust and be different. I haven't been as compliant as you but I am getting better at it and my health has definately improving.

Cap Jane - Was Carolyn Mein's book the 25 body types book? Interesting book.

Zola - Coconut milk? Can we have coconut milk? And Mangos?


Funny problem - Since I started out on the secretor plan and worked so hard to learn Bennie/Avoid list & then concentrated on learning the nonnie Bennie/Avoid list - there are foods I have been avoiding that must be on our neutral list.  Daaaaa!  More work.

Hope we can keep this thread going.

You sure are the only one, and I noticed it is very high in fat content 75% and special instruction on how to make it is also on that page, just in case you didn't notice.  Sounds so easy to make fresh.

No, coconuts also are neutral for A2B per LR4YT page 315.

MoDon thanks for the info - we are happy to share.

Gemi - Yikes - all that fat.

Zola - How do you use coconut milk. Sparingly I bet.  Do you make your own or buy it canned? (think I have seen cans of it at store.)

I use coconut milk occasionally to make a curry sauce (with simmered sweet potato chunks & steamed broccoli put in at the end of cooking) or in the mango smoothie with pineapple juice. Be sure to get the real stuff without additives - even 'natural' stuff has gums in it to thicken it. There are handy small single serve cans available. Try an asian market or the ethnic part of the supermarket.

Fresh coconut is very alkaline (good esp. for A's). Crack open the coconut (take off the brown outer shell and peel the brown outer covering off. Tap the coconut and drain off the juice through one of the 3 natual holes in the end, saving the juice. Break it into chunks and send it through the food processor/shredder. to get "milk" mix the juice with the shredded meat and press it through a sieve. It is really good and the meat makes it sweet. (Overindulging in fresh coconut juice leads to diarrhea so beware.) You could even lightly simmer the juice and shredded meat together  before pressing it to get more out of the shreds.

I've made a fresh coconut pie 'crust' before with ground almonds and coconut oil. it was a no bake chocolate pie where the cream was make from avocado (also alkaline) mixed with melted dark chocolate. It was very rich but good - and made to share
