As a type O I don't think about calories. If I eat enough red meat based protein then I won't have cravings or be hungry for hours.

Then along with eating the protein I eat a lot of greens and occasionally a few other types of veggies to fill me up and give me the nutrients I need. And I always have some olive oil with every meal!

Hi Don I know your not an "A" but you seem to have alot of knowledge and you know that I am so I just thought you might know these things, maybe I am wrong. Anyway, Thank you for the name of the Book, there are so many and I am new to the larger picture here. I will get the book this weekend! I am very very much into nature
Hi Mrs. T O+, Thank you for the reply, Always love the replies 235 down to 140 in 11 months 6 pant sizes. Congrates on yours!!!!! Are just thrilled or what!! Your 5 up on me! Stinker! But, I'll catch up maybe...I don't know if I should lose much more. Some people are telling me I am starting to look to thin. So I am thinking I should maybe just hold at 140 I am 5-7 and 51yrs. What do you guys think? I don't have charts around here anymore since I retired. This is an outstanding way of eating, isn't it? Well, I feel better with a few people posting about the several meals a day issue today it really helped me. I was getting frustrated a bit. O's are hungry lil one's huh   I just dropped bread completely cuz I couldn't find one I liked w/out wheat. They all tasted like dirt! I don't miss it anyway. I have Rye Crisp, Melba Toast instead or Wasa. See now stuffing would make me sick. See how different it is for everyone. Amazing! I am so happy for you that it is working for you to!!!
You to Don, I am thrilled for you to!!! Gooooooooooooo "O's"! ; I just love seeing so many people caring about there health. When I was nursing I saw so many that did not care. This is wonderful. All of you from beginners to goal makers my hat is off to you all :

Mystic, you should realize that while the Leptin way of Equipro works for Equipro, it might not work for you. But if you want more protein in your diet you can also do that over the course of 6 meals if that works better for you. If what the Leptin way says is true that you remain full longer with more protein, then perhaps you should try it over 6 meals per day and see what happens. We are all indivivuals here and what works for one may not work for someone else, or perhaps in an adapted way.

I am mostly interested in this leptin way because it says it burns your fat more. That is something I need. I have such a long way to go. But I will do it my way, and I most certainly will eat some starch (I like my rice etc.) in the evening.

Also, Mystic, the LWOE IS a plan for losing weight and pounds.  You, at 5-7 and 140 are THIN.  The LWOE is focuses on those who have always had serious weight problems (either way too thin or obese), or, like me, hit 40, keep gaining weight and can't seem to lose it (especially around the middle)

The theory is that those that fit into this category have, among other things, leptin resistence.  Eating with the 5 rules supposedly helps to reset your leptin and other biorythms and feebacks.

You, at your weight, do not appear to fit in these catagories and therefore your leptin might be working well.  In other words, you might not need to follow those rules at all.

Also, Sandraruba, the LWOE says NOTHING about eliminating starch.  Even at breakfast, the point is to FOCUS in or protein, not to eliminate starch. They simply disucss keeping starch equal in portion to protein or less at lunch and dinner.  They don't suggest eliminating any foods except for junk. The thing of eliminating starch is my goal, personally, because I have severe starch and sugar issues which keep me from losing weight.  Trust me, if I weren't such a starch and sugar addict, and could eat it normally, I would eat some at each meal.

Good Morning All! Thanks for your reply Sandraruba! Don't get me wrong I was never discounting the the Leptin theory at all here ever!!! I have faith in everything here. Just not everything here is tailored "for me is all". I am not attacking the the Dr's work here at all. If you think that...I didn't get my point across correctly and I am sorry. All I was trying to say was "everyone is different and it works differently on each of us is all". Ricecakes YUMMY!!!
Hi EquiPro, I guess you read the top portion of this already. You seem to know a lot about this Leptin theory and that is great and it is working for you and I am thrilled for you. You do what works for you and that is healthy for you. The way you explain it, it just might be something for my husband to try. I know a lot about his dieting history and it is a tough one. But, I want to get his test kits going first before I get into all of that. But, I will remember Leptin for him and pick up the book. I want him to succeed like me so bad. I am so worried he is going to have a heart attack if he doesn't do something soon. His is all around the middle to! And he just can't seem to leave junk food, candy, choc, diet cokes!!!!, ice cream etc alone! But Thanks for the help.

Mystic - it sounds like your hubby is leptin resistant and would benefit from the LWOE.  It really is for those with the belly fat issue and weight issues.

I feel sorry for him.  It is such a struggle.  I struggle with it and so does my Mom.  We are easy keepers, have lots of food issues and love to eat.  That's just the luck of the genetic draw this time around for us.

Though I'd like to be thinner, I know that being thin is something that might always be a  bit out of reach for me, and that being the best that I can be WHERE I AM is the best way to go.  

I keep trying.

Get the Leptin book for hubby.  Even small changes can help.

Thanks Equipro for clearing that up. I thought it was the program that eliminated starch. I really need to lose a lot of weight and if this can help me, then I am willing to try it. Ate two eggs (only the whites) this morning. The dogs just love me because they get the yolk......   .
And I added some barley to my oatmeal, because it has some more protein.

I was also a sugar addict. My favorite thing, especially at night after my dinner, egg cookies. Just plop three eggs in a bowl, add sugar and some more sugar, some baking powder, and some flour. Throw it in the oven for 20 minutes and your sugar egg cookies are good to go. Did I feel good after eating 6 of those? No, in fact I felt lousy, but I still had to have it. Sometimes 7 days a week!
Now I can't even imagine that I had to have that so badly.

We'll just see how this goes. Of course all this changing is making my body go like :"hey, what's going on now!!!" Haven't lost any weight for three days, but it will start again once it's accustomed to everything.

I know just how you felt after eating those sugar egg cookies! I used to do that a long long time ago with chocolate chip cookies, I would eat so many right out of the oven and would I ever feel SICK after. Then I discovered eating radishes right away took the sickness away! Red work, but the white even better. So I kept doing it, till one day I had had enough.
Good luck on your BTD!! Just stick to it!

Great story and great poem also! You know my excuse for not following the diet to the letter is my age. I'm not going to lose weight because of it. Well you proved me wrong. Hopefully I can get back on it real quick...Aani.


Listen, this is what I think: I think we can't go around measuring our goodness by what we don't do, by what we deny ourselves, what we resist, and who we exclude. I think we've got to measure goodness by what we embrace, what we create, and who we include. Pere Henri (Chocolat)
