Hi. I started eating 3 good meals and something in between 4 days ago. I noticed a change. I eat 2 hardboiled eggs for breakfast, salad and chicken for lunch, and chicken and salad for dinner. Oh and a banana and v8 for the something in between. For weight loss should I add something else or take something away? Anything for help would be good....drinking only water too....am I going about this the right way? Any tips would be great!! ;

I have now lost in total 66 pounds (30 kilo's) and my fat percentage went from 46.5% in December to 44.6% today.

So that means I have lost real fat!!!

I had started on Jan 1/06 and have tried to stick to it, and I have lost 10 lbs. in 3 weeks.

I haven't had any cravings or wanted to stray since I started.  Although over the weekend I did make some red meat, as I was having guest for dinner and I tell you I won't do that again!  My stomach did not like it one bit!  I shall be sticking to my food list!

I'll keep you informed as to any further weight loss!

Cheers!

This has been such a fascinating process for me...

I decided that this time I wanted permanent weight loss, so I have only done things that I know I can keep up for the rest of my life. Dr. D wrote something in his book on Diabetes to the effect that the biggest indicator of failure was doing too much too fast (or something like that) - and remembering this has also helped me.

I have been losing weight rather slowly, but consistently. It has been about 9 months since I really focused on the BTD and I have lost a total of 16 lbs. now. Even though that is only about 2 lbs. a month - it really does add up over time!

My blood sugar is regulated, my blood pressure is now normal, I can exercise consistently on a weekly basis, my energy is better, I hardly ever get sick - I just feel so much better overall!!!

I still have 5 more lbs. on the "generous" BMI scale until I hit the upper end of "normal", or 12 lbs. the not-so-generous scale - but now I actually see myself getting there. And I haven't had to suffer to do so. This way of eating is very satisfying.

I'm so glad I found this thread!
I really need to lose 100lb plus and I am struggeling right now. I am trying to follow the BTD doing great during the day but have a hard time in the evening. I love sweets and love my bread but I am really trying to stay off wheat and diary. I have an 8 year old at home so it's hard not to have any avoids in the house. I have an underactive thyroid and have been on meds for over 20 years now. I don't think they are working anymore!  I find my emotional state is all over the place I can get real down on myself cry easily and I could have some really angry outbursts! PMS lets not even talk about it! I love hearing all your success stores it's really modivating. Can the A's out there who have lost weight post menus on what has worked for them. I would love to hear what you are all eating. I don't eat very much during the day, I can get by on grapefruit for breakfast and salad or lentil/bean soup for lunch my problem is when I get home. I start off very good but seem to fall off the wagon all the time. Help!

Keep out the good work everyone it's very encouraging !

Laura

Laura, Your problem may be that you need to start off your day with a higher protein breakfast. Also breafast should be your biggest meal of the day. Dr. D recommends this in LR4YT for type As.

A higher protein breakfast will help stop your cravings later in the day.

Thanks for your reply Don. You did mention that to me on another post. I have started incorporating some protein at breakfast (peanut butter) and will try to add more animal protein for lunch. I used to be a snacker in between meals but I don't really need anything during the day. I just have a problem in the evening, always have. It's not so much that I'm hungry I think it's emotional eating but that's another story!

Laura,
I was going to say the same thing Don did. I either eat a large bowl of oatmeal with unsweetened soymilk (Eden or Westsoy brand to not have avoids) and walnuts or sometimes I will have an egg with rye toast and ghee. I try to get my animal protein in at lunch and then eat dinner as early as possible. Emotional eating is a challenge (been there), but balancing out sugar levels and eating better really does help even with that.
Best of luck to you on your journey!

Elizabeth,
Corn is a new avoid (if you've assumed you're a secretor) and I think the other big weight gain foods are similar to the other books: wheat, dairy, kidney beans, lima beans, and potatoes.


Hi Laurjen - just found this post where you mention that corn is a new avoid for A secretors??  Can you tell me more about that?  Trying to keep up with the avoids and beneficials for us A's ...

laurjen,

If you are dealing with a weight issue, I would highly recommend getting your secretor status tested.  This would be a big step in fine tuning your diet for optimum results. It just may be the key that jump starts some weight loss, and ends those food cravings.

If there are any other health issues you are dealing with, then I'd further recommend picking up an appropriate Health Series book, and following the further refinement of your diet might make the difference you need.

I can only give the example of myself.  After following the Arthritis Program as written since December 17th, I can take a two mile walk joint pain free.  I couldn't even get out of the CAR before that date without pain.  My arthritis virtually disappeared but my weight stayed the same.

When I finally accepted the fact that I have candida, I really have made a concentrated effort to virtually cut out all sugar (even beneficial ones), and the weight is finally starting to come off, combined with a continual exersize plan.

Sometimes we have to take baby steps.  But eventually, those baby steps add up to noticable progress.

Yeah, I'd be interested to know as well. The TypeBase says it's a Neutral for A secs, and Avoid for everyone else.

Corn:

Here's how it stacks up in the Menopause and ALLERGIES Health Series Library Books:

Corn Oil is an avoid for everybody.

Corn becomes a "Neutral Infrequent" for all Type A's.

Cornmeal becomes a "Neutral Infrequent" for A Secretors, and AVOID for every other Type.

So, imho, if you are dealing with a health issue, avoid corn, and corn byproducts.

Thanks KimonoKat, and *waaaaaaa* . Pretty soon, Mexican will be out all together. Perhaps I should practice my Spanish enough to be able to say: "can I have the inside of a burrito without the tortilla?"

Isn't it ironic how we love foods that are Avoids, and then one day somebody said "count your blessings you are an O" if it means being fortunate that we can have meat, I am stumped, I could practically live on veggies - love them to death and trying to avoid cheeses is near impossible for me....but having said that it is the cheeses that make me put on weight - so these are the choices we are faced with

You know, I don't remember if I posted that and don't have time to go back and check, but I'm guessing that if I did, I meant corn is an avoid for non-secretors, so if you thought you were a secretor and found out you were a non-secretor instead, it would be a new avoid for you. My understanding is that the actual vegetable, corn, is neutral for A secretors and an avoid for non-secretors. As for all other corn products, I think someone else here did a nice job of listing those.

Quoted from Colleen

My cravings disappeared on this way of life and that's a huge bonus for me.



I know this is an elderly post but my cravings are dissappearing too!  There was pie in the house last night. Pie is one of my favorite foods.  I didn't even want it.  Not even a little bit.  
This is good because I need to lose 15-20 pounds.  I think it's time to start to cut that calories.
