Lot's of variants on protein shakes are used.

One possibility is this powder with whatever compliant flavoring agent you enjoy:

Some people use cranberry, cherry is also popular.


If compliant you may want to add this carob extract:

The powder can be used without flavoring agents.

Lola, thank you for that webzine article!

I have been following swami xpress for one year and am feeling sort of "stuck" at the moment.  So many of the folks who generously post and offer support to new forum members are very compliant. For me, it can be a bit overwhelming to try to manage 80% compliance, especially when traveling.

Achieving a balanced life, whatever that means to you, seems most important.

I think it would be a good idea to try to get more protein in your diet. Something like a boiled egg or two  and a few slices of turkey or turkey ham/sausage in between meals, even if they contain some non-compliant ingredients.

You may also want to avoid bananas. I don't say this just because I do, but because there are other blood type B's who also have a problem with them... namely fatigue.

If you have reactive hypoglycemia due to gluten sensitivity/intolerance, I would think that you're probably a non-secretor.

I know that many of us B's tend to try to be perfectionist, but we're not perfect. Don't worry about making mistakes, it's something we've all been doing all of our lives.

It's important to me that with each meal I get a good amount of proteins, healthy fats and healthy carbs.  Before I understood that my body needed that balance, I used to get blood sugar crashes quite easily.

Don't skip meals.    And be careful of eating a meal with just fruit or a meal with just carbohydrates and no protein and fats.  Those two things can cause a blood sugar spike and then a crash.

I used to be hypoglycemic also before I went on the BTD very highly compliant. It was a very serious problem for me.  Now, a high protein breakfast plus whole fruits (NO JUICES) keeps my blood sugar level stable.

I don't think it can be stressed strongly enough the importance of a high protein breakfast for all blood types!  (And include some veggies:  I always put a generous amount of spinach or other greens into our high protein breakfast smoothie milkshake)

Even though I am an A and can supposedly eat grains, having cereal and fruit or juice in the morning will throw me right back to where I was before.  About twice a month I can handle porridge made from quinoa which technically isn't a grain anyway and is pretty high in protein for a "grain type" food.  But I cook it with the compliant high protein (Eden brand) organic soy milk that we use and always add a generous amount of chopped walnuts to the bowl.  

Also, being an A and eating very little meats of any kind, I use vitamin B12 patches as recommended by my local naturopathic practitioner and that makes a huge difference in my energy level.  



6 years on ER BTD, went from sick and dying to healthier And 30 pounds slimmer.

I thought A's did that. And YES on the "no!" to bananas. Even as a bene. on my SWAMI they always make me tired. Let the monkeys in South America eat them

We just don't admit that we TRY to be perfectionist.
We just kinda keep that to ourselves.
