I'm on a defend the secretors rampage tonight.  I hear so much talk about how nonnies have this and nonnie have that problem.  Well guess what you all, you can be a secretor and have some things not work like they should.  Or maybe that's an AB thing?????  I don't know, but TJ, I spend a bunch of money on good food and supplements and have to do without a lot of things because of it.  So I can relate.  I know you're reaching out to your brother secretor over here though.  But no nonnie is an island.  Hehehhehahahahhaha.  Just a little play on words there.  But really, I saw that list in another thread about all these problems a nonnie could have and I think I have every one of them, besides the bad teeth.  Although I've had some dental problems.  But I think that was due to neglect more than anything else.  So.........

Hug a secretor today.  bwaaaaahahahahhahaha    

I'm glad you're feeling better.  I wonder if upping your compliant nuts isn't a bad idea.  Not all fat but lots of calories?  I've upped mine a little.  Not terribly, because I already eat a lot.

To whom was this directed?


JJ (aka ABNW).  I pick up some herbal cleansing stuff at the health food store for the children.  I can't do it because I'm always either pregnant, nursing or both.  One day....one day.....when I'm too old to care......

Maybe we need a BTD/GTD/SWAMI "skinny" clubhouse since we are also in the minority! I have been trying desperately to add some pounds in the last two weeks. I can't bare that I am not even on the BMI chart.

I made a few adjustments, and if SWAMI knows all, them I'm making a mistake but I just don't think it's healthy to be over 5'7 and hanging onto 110 pounds, sometimes down to 108. Can't even buy clothes, I am tall with long arms and legs and everything looks 3/4 length, sleeves and pants, in extra small or size 2.

I am still eating only compliant foods, I adjusted the amounts. SWAMI reduced ghee, butter, oil and the few cheeses I can have. I was following this for awhile but it caused me to lose even more weight. I added more of these fats and also a little heavier on grain some days, but only compliant ones.

I am eating everything else I should, 2 big portions of protein per day, 6-7 servings of veggies and 4 of fruit, 6 servings of nuts per week. I just don't think I can add any more meat in my diet. I also go over the egg limit. More veggies is not going to add pounds.

I managed to put on about 2-3 pounds but I am hoping to do better. I also stopped exercising every day, like a Hunter should, and do a pretty intense workout every other day. 45-50 minute cardio and 25-30 minute weight training.

I am hoping not to look like a bean pole for summer. I can see my ribs. I am almost 50, so I am not looking to sport a bikini, just don't want to look like a bag of bones. Although thankfully my "O" genes got me nice and toned.

I am another late eater, but I eat all day, just flows into the night as well!

WF, I don't know if you read through the whole thread (I usually don't if I chime in late), so I'll review a couple things we discussed.

First, bye-bye food combining (eat carbs and proteins together).  We need our digestion to slow down so we can extract more calories from what we eat.

Eat a few big meals, instead of several small ones.

Eat more fat (this will be even more help to you than me, with all your intestinal alkaline phosphatase ).

Add (or estimate) your calorie intake for a typical day.  You might not be getting as much a you thought.

And for you, you made a good move cutting back on your workout.  Might I suggest going even further?  Aerobic is going to be the worst calorie burner, so I'd cut it back to 20-30 minutes max.  If you still want your exercise fix every day, alternate between cardio and weights.

Well, I don't mean to be disrespectful, but those oil recommendations on SWAMI are pathetic.  It has me eating 6 teaspoons of ghee or other oil per week.  CMON.  I eat more than that.  I try and take it easy, and not go overboard.  And maybe that's my problem.  I don't know.  I've been adding more nuts lately.  And that's another joke.  4 servings per week of nuts.  That might be an OK idea if I start eating more red meat.  Which it does want me to do, so....  but some of those redommendations I think are a little skewed.

So yeah!!  Lets get a skinny forum!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  We can talk about how we should put pounds on!!!!

It is comforting to know I'm not the only one struggling with this, even though I don't really want others to struggle.  I wish all of our bodies were perfect and as they should be!!!

With my Jammies on tonight I was 128.5.  The other night I was 130.  It's getting a little better.  I feel like my stomach is working a little better this last week or so. Yes LORD!!

If I eat too little I get stressed out. I think my intestinal health has more to do with it than the amounts. Next comes my cardiovascular system which seems dependent on a few things.

I find myself craving vegetables even thinking about eating lamb (I think my thyroid likes it). I mix rice with it too. Then I have lots of beans and vegetables... at least sometimes. I find myself without the muscle or ability to think clearly when I try and eat less for weight reasons (fat, I have re-occurring muscle loss when I do not eat carbohydrates and when I go real lean like on warrior diet). My thyroid suffers too when I eat little (or ingest too much fructose). The hard part is keeping my intestines healthy to absorb the brown rice.

The recommendation on nuts though I am starting to agree with in some ways... I feel like eating too much of them does not benefit me much and other things get what I want done better. Plus I feel like they are harder on my kidney. Beans though... I can eat two cans a day and still need rice.

Right now I am trying to eat other good things for me instead of over doing the beans and especially lentils. I just think other things will benefit me, not that I should eat less of certain foods. I feel like this is a healthy outlook. I do try to make the things I eat a ton of to be diamonds though, well at least with beans. I also skip fish because the only stuff I think I like is probably a real bad choice (right kidney trouble, mercury?)
