JJR, do those beef slices contain any sugar?  Any other ingredients?  I know that even a hint of black pepper messes up my insides.



Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are.
Let me not pass you by in quest
of some rare and perfect tomorrow.

Black pepper drives me up the wall!

No, just water, beef and pepper.  I don't think it's the pepper.  Although it could be.  I eat it on the salmon at Panera sometimes and I ate that salmon while staying away from the beef slices.  And I didn't get that weird, low blood sugar feeling during that time.  I suspect it's just the type of beef they use.  But, I could be wrong.  It could also be the specific pepper they use.  Because Panera looks like they put this large stuff and some of it is white.  Possibly better quality?

I don't know.

Well, I ate some organic prairie beef slices yesterday with no ill affects.  So.... for some reason the applegate farms one messes with my blood sugar.  Or that's what it feels like.  Because it was like clockwork.  I eat it, I get symptoms, I don't eat it, no symptoms.  Easy as pie.  It's not like the symptoms are that horrible and I would still eat the applegate if it's all I had on hand.  But it does seem to make my blood sugar crash.  Why?  I don't know.  The organic prairie has some pepper on it too.  Although it's very minute and I can barely taste it.  Plus, like I said, the panera salmon has pepper on it and I don't get those symptoms either.  And that has enough that I can taste it pretty good, even though I try to scrape some of it off.  I have to admit, I actually like the taste of pepper.  But it is an avoid.  Oh well.  I think if that's the worst thing I eat a few times a week, I'll be OK.

I used to buy the Applegate Farms sliced turkey in the 7oz plastic bag.  But at some point, the ingredients changed.  They added Carregeanen.

In your case, I'm guessing they've added or changed the natural flavor of the product you're buying, and the labeling either hasn't caught up with it or it is broad enough to encompass the change.


My SWAMI diet is a blend of BTD and GTD Explorer, but I'm not totally compliant.  Also I try to choose foods that have a Low Glycemic index.  DW and DD are A+, probably also Explorer.

Sahara, you said "it may be A and other blood types just want to argue and cause chaos like they always do about everything." I'm sorry, but I'm an A- and I'm just the opposite. I hate to argue. But I am concerned about my health, since I almost died recently and my mother did die. I grew up eating just about everything, even when I had a reaction. I was too busy taking care of others to care for myself. Now I am trying to find out everything I can about what is wrong with me and how I can fix it without meds or operations before it's too late. That's why I joined this forum. And since I am  pre-diabetic also, when my blood sugar gets too low, I get dizzy and nearly pass out unless I get some O.J. or candy. Like you, I'm very busy. I do everything fast and multi-task, and have always striven to be perfect. But what good is that if I'm killing myself?

I wouldn't give too much energy or thought to her advice.  I hate to be rude or even sound mean, but she doesn't seem to understand the differences in blood types and genotypes very well and is giving all kinds of advice that is somewhat contradictory to what we learn in these books.  I'm not trying to make her mad, or be rude, or a jerk.  But I've confronted her on this a couple of different times and she doesn't respond directly to the question.  And when someone is giving health advice, and it's almost directly opposed to the things we learn on here, it should probably be addressed.  I don't know if it has been behind the scenes or not, but I'm addressing it here.  It's my thread and I can cry if I want to...... Hhehehhehehehe

If what she follows is working for her, that's GREAT!!  I got no problems with that.  But she seems to think we all need to be doing just what she's doing and I disagree.  



square peg: That's weird about the carrageenan.  Because it's not listed in the ingredients on the peapod website.  And I have to be honest, I've eaten their turkey before and don't have that reaction.  It's only with the beef.  But, I seemed to have found a great alternative with the Organic Prairie.  I've eaten it a few times now and have not had any reactions that I can tell.

Sometimes I feel a blood sugar crash when I eat a large meal. I think you are doing the right thing by listening to your body and eat every few hours if this works for you. everyone is different... sometimes I can go longer periods without food and feel fine, but typically I lack a ton of energy when I do this.

Keep us posted and just monitor everything you eat along with your feelings before and after the meal, just my thoughts

Well, I have to say, I've been able to go longer periods of time without any crashes when I eat bigger meals lately.  And I think the fact that I'm eating more protein now.  I used to eat such small amounts of protein at a meal.  Like 2-3 ounces.  Now, I'm going for like 5 ounces and sometimes more.  But my swami allows this, and I need to gain weight.  So......  I don't know if that will keep up or not.    I would hope it does, because I'd rather figure out how to eat less and do other things.  But I had been eating 7 times a day.  Yesterday I ate 6 times.  That is less work.  Hehehhee  But I'm trying to hit a target for calories, so it always just depends on how it all shakes out.  If I can get up to 600 calories and lunch and dinner, that would help things quite a bit.  But I have not figured that out at all.  I've gotten up to 550 at lunch sometimes.  But it's not so easy.  The stars have to align right with the right foods.  There are only so many high calorie meats and veggies.  Many veggies you'd have to eat buckets of to get any significant calories.  That's why I'm eating nuts at many of my meals.

Try to figure out if it is real hunger or false- real hunger causes fatigue.  I only get real hunger from eating less than I need to.  Carbs can cause blood sugar crashes, at least for Os.
