Question, particularly for the women who lift weights.

A few friends and I were discussing the fact that women tend to lose their chest when they lift. Naturally, many of us do not want to lose what we've got. Fenugreek has been suggested, as a possible preventative to this, and I wanted to see where it stands as far as Type Os.

Anyone have any ideas?

I know it is recommended for lactation for nursing mothers. I don't remember the exact rating but it was in several protocols for different reasons in the encyclopedia and I think it was recommended for use by O's. I don't remember off hand what my swami said about it.

I use fenugreek as one of the components of my homemade curry mix (which I use frequently).

Beware (!) - sprouting fenugreek seeds, and or grinding for curries, or making tea results in a sweetish almost maple syrupy body odour and pee smell which I wasn't personally very keen on…I only use them on an adhoc rather than regular basis now for that reason.

is that what that smell was in India? I just thought it was a combination of all the spices they all ate

Hi there Battle Dwarf - fenugreek isn't a pre-requisite for all curry mixes, so I don't think it alone accounts for the smell you noticed in India, of course, most Indian spices are very aromatic, but don't affect body odours in the way that asparagus and fenugreek do

Fenugreek is also reputed to cause uterine contractions as well as aiding lactation, so the timing of the fenugreek ingestion is quite crucial for pregnant women…and presumably could also effect menstrual symptoms too at "that" time of the month?

so I would not want to start fenugreek until after I have the baby? that's good no know. of course he is due next week anyway so it would be hard to tell if fenugreek got him going or not. never had any problems at 'that time of the month', it makes people describing what to expect from labor a real pain. "feels like a bad period" dose not help me at all so I am just waiting for something I have never had anything to relate to
the area of india I was in sold fenugreek by the pound both seed, fresh, and dried leaf as a spice. it was in heavy use there. the greens dipped in chickpea flour and fried were very tasty.
