Looks to me that if we want to know the reasons for our own avoids, we should get the SWAMI done and study the Chart Report.


OH I so want that report for myself!!!!  I am not crazy about the Explorer diet.  I like BTD better.  But if Swami could customize a diet just for me, that would be what Id follow.

Crimson:  I would love to at least have a pocket guide specific to non secretors.
NAP sells little plastic reference guides that fold up.  Beneficial on one site and avoid on the other.  Everything else is neutral.  I bought B non-secretor for me and carry it with me always.  I bought a secretor card for my son, but he lost it long ago.

You're mad at me now because I was arguing with you about cow's milk, aren't you?  Don't hate me.  I'm still learning.  I was reading Live Right for your type and I think he was saying not to drink milk.   I have to look at it again.  Anyways, like I said, I could be all wet.  I don't want to get on your bad side. Or maybe I'm just paranoid.  

It's funny Dr.D says AB's are passionate about their beliefs yet want to be accepted by others.  And that we like to be alone yet we like to be social.  Talk about Jekyl and Hyde.  But it is totally me.  hehehehehhehehehe.

This is a friendly board & we don't get mad!

I'm married to an AB & he certainly is interesting in certain areas, but much loved in public. He claims not to care what others think(acceptance). He appears social, but loves his 'space'. In that area, he fooled me. Other than that, I got a good deal!![36 years of marriage!]

My weird 95-yr. old aunt is also an AB. She is/was very intelligent, but not productive in her life. She is kind of a loner, but loves to talk & kill your time(I say that as one who loves to talk, also!), but not act. Definitely she is not the typical AB. I wonder if she is an explorer. She can't be a teacher or warrior as she loves beef & smokes. She loves coffee. Maybe she fits the category of "we don't know much about them."  I'm glad most of you ABs are more normal.

You all are a delight!

I don't know if anyone is mad, but Ribbit has 3 little kids & must be exhausted all the time. She just celebrated her 6th anniversary. Do the math & you would be tired just thinking about it! I was married 4 years before we had our first one & the 2nd one was 3+ years later. I can get tired thinking about that. I can't imagine having 3 kids with my kids' personalities ages 5, 3, & baby! I surely wouldn't have time for the computer!
So, as they say, "Cut her some slack!"
All alone in the house & still tired,
Mrs "T"

My ears were burning.  Wait.  Do frogs have ears?  They probably have vibration sensors.

AB, it takes a whole lot more than cow's milk to make me mad.   Yes, if you do the math, we got married April 6, got pregnant on our honeymoon (which was fine with us, only we didn't realize how sick I would get and might have tried to at least wait till my husband finished grad school) and Elizabeth was born 9 1/2 months later.  Ethan came 2 years and 2 months after that, and Julia came 2 years and 2 months after that.  Can we say, "Regular cycles"?  Yes, I'm tired.  But I shouldn't complain.  I have friends with babies a lot closer together than that.

My daughter is everything Dr. D says about ABs.  He pegs her to a T, and it's helped us to understand her.

You mean I scared her off by calling her smokin?  I didn't mean no harm.  I saw a picture of Lola on the Blog too. Very pretty!!!!!!  Anyways, I'm sorry if I scare everyone.  I'm an AB, it's the blood's fault.  

Ribbit, thank you for not being mad.  I wasn't trying to say you were wrong, I just am trying to get a handle on it myself. I've still been drinking skim from time to time though.  Hehhehehehehe.  Because I sure as heck aint going to drink breast milk.  I think you were saying it's best to stick with cultured dairy?  No?  I finally got some low fat organic plain yogurt.  It's not bad.  Especially if you give it a little flavor with something compliant.  I should maybe try goats milk too.

I doubt you scared Crimson away with the smoking comment.  Not everybody comes on here every day, I dont.  Sometimes a persons days & nights are filled up with life.  It takes a long time to read through all the posts here.  Were an active board.

It is a very good board. I appreciate the compliment. Ty!
I don't scare all that easily.
I've been reading the LR4YT. I'm learning. It is answering the why's as far as the nonnie gut reactions occur. I appreciate that as well, Dr. D. It helps. Ty.

I'm also researching celiac and learning to heal myself here.
I'm looking back over some of the health issues and experiences that I've had over my life and seeing the damage that has been done.
I've always considered myself a damn healthy person. This is kind of a shock to my self image. hah
Wheat and gluten free grain alone is NOT gluten free. Gluten is seemingly in EVERYTHING. It's frustrating.  
Good thing I'm a determined person.
Millet flour, chicken, most fruits and vegtables are making me ill.
I'm getting veggies in V8.   It seems to be working.

I've found a really good liquid vitamin to help get nutrients into my system though. I think that's making most of the difference. I'm starting to gain my muscle back and keep a healthy weight again.

It's now easier to to list (and focus) on what I can eat rather than what I cannot. Though, I'm still in the process of learning what I cannot. So, the focus is split.

Thank you for all the replies, amusement and support!
I'll be back. Muahhahaha

I know how you feel.  I never had health problems.  I had a LOT of energy.  I was on the go a lot.  I felt strong.  Then at about 30, things started to unravel.  I started to get a heart arhythmia at about 30.  It was very infrequent though and didn't slow me down much.  Then at 35, I had the worst year I ever had in my life for health issues.  

It is hard to come to grips with it and you feel like your weird or something.  Coming to this board has shown me that a lot of people struggle with similar things.  Gut issues, etc.  And I'm not alone and it's OK.  And that it's not all in my head.  I pray you find what makes you tick and feel better.  My Mom and sister have struggle too with similar stuff and they are the ones that turned me on to this diet.  But I didn't totally relate to them until things got real bad.

what are the ingredients in your V8?
it s been ages since I don t go near one, there s citric acid or something similar in the V8s down here, plus all the additives and flavors, 'natural' of course!!
those little things could be causing distress.....

Non Secreters are 200% more likely to develop Celiac Disease than others. It's difficult to diagnose. The site that I got my test from is supposed to be one of the easiest and up to date, accurate, etc....
You may want to look into it if you're having gut issues. It might help just to go read a bit on http://www.glutenfreeforum.com/  
It has helped me a great deal. I've gotten good tips on how to deal with this.

The v8 I can only have every couple of days. It seems tomato does not agree with me. I've checked their web sites and it is gluten free.
I think it's just me. I'm back to eating very few fruits and vegetables.

So far, I'm still keeping a decent weight. As long as I'm ok there...I'm doing well enough until my gut heals.

Celiac is so strange a disease that it fascinates me!
I'm odd about things like that.

Don't worry about losing weight. In our land of plenty, it's easy to gain it back. Get well first. If you 'rest your system' by not eating much for some time, you will be able to heal faster & eat more again!
How's everything in W.Va.? I'm sure you have a beautiful spring while we have a bad one. Spring was gorgeous in WV, while fall was more blah as I remember.  In the Midwest, fall is usually better.
However, some of the tulips I planted last fall are coming up!

I don't eat anything with corn. I'm still very much following the O nonnie diet. I fully believe that the blood type diet has been GOOD for me. Even before I found I was non secreter. It's has certainly helped prepare me for the limitations that I'm experiencing now.

I really don't eat much of anything. I eat a fair amount of food. Just not a fair variety at the moment.
It's beef, rice (in small amounts) bananas, blueberries and some veggies. Spinach and carrots are ok. Avocados have been great to get
calories in. Almonds and walnuts, or their butter equivalent.
I'm doing ok. I have some energy back. Still not where I was but certainly much MUCH better! ^_^

I got my enterolab results back. I have two genes for gluten sensitivity and am likely for developing celiac. Go figure.
I'm still in the air on if I'll go to an actual doctor. I'm more of a natural remedy type. I've always done well. I'm not sure that a doctor will help me anymore than I can help myself.
Apparently, it's...hell to get a diagnosis and then they just tell you to go gluten free. Which I already am. So, it may be pointless.
I'm rambling now.

The spring has been half beautiful and half rainy. I'm looking forward to summer! I always feel better in the summer.

Illinois, how bad has it been? I know there have been a fair number of storms go through. We always catch a bit of it. At least I'm  not in VA right now. Tornadoes.
