My SWAMI says this about my vegetable protein portions but doesn't mention beans.

Vegetable Proteins     
     GT3 'Teacher' (Blood Group A Secretor)
Food choices emphasizing hybridized BTD and GTD values
Portion Size: Nuts, Seeds: quarter cup; Nut Butters: 1 tablespoon
Frequency: 8 servings weekly.

How do I measure a bean portion?

1 cup cooked is what I take as a measurement......

these are all guidelines to help you stay within certain limits,

True, but the guidelines do need to be there.  Nothing to adapt really gives you nothing with any certainty.

From my Swami:
GT4 'Explorer' (Blood Group O Non-Secretor)
Food choices emphasizing hybridized BTD and GTD values
Portion Size: Nuts, Seeds: quarter cup; Nut Butters: 1 tablespoon
Frequency: 5 servings weekly.
I assumed that the beans, lentils, and pulses were more in the nature of nuts or seeds rather than nut butters.

I take 1/4  cup of lentils (dry measure) as being a serving.  I have been using that as the vegetation (   ) portion of most of my breakfasts each week.  I do occasionally add 1-2 cups of peas to a stir fry to bulk it up (usually the turkey/onion/ghee).  Whatever the beansí measure is, I will be changing my habits.  


My weight loss goal: 220 lbs.  A 6'4" dyslexic oddball: the size of a line-backer, the silhouette of Winnie-the-Pooh.
