BTD Forums  /  Eat Right 4 Your Type  /  A secretor feels better without grains
Posted by: 736 (Guest), Sunday, November 12, 2006, 2:18am
Hi all,

Would it be bad if I ate the nonnie way? I might have my secretor status re- checked since I don't do well with grains or starches at all. I feel the best with fish, poultry, veggies, nuts,seeds and fruit. I am also gluten intolerant. I suffered with 5 intestinal infections as well over the past 10 years.  :X

The night I had my burning chest pain I ate beans with all three meals, so I don't do well with those either. I guess this is all individual. I drink soymilk once in a while but don't do tofu, since it can affect my gut adversely due to molecular mimicry.

On a good note, my h.pylori test came back negative!

Take care,
June ;D

Have you tried beneficial grains such as amaranth?  I find I do best with some beneficial beans/grains in my weekly diet, if not daily.

I can't do Amaranth due to molecular mimicry. The only ones would be buckwheat and millet. If I do have them I have to do food combining or I have major gas! I like the roasted buckwheat the best. I'm not wild about millet. I have made buckwheat  four/ nut flour pancakes.

Thanks,
June ;D

Have you tried quinoa?  It is a whole protein by itself.

I can't have it due to the molecular mimicry deal. The only grains that are permitted are buckwheat, rice and millet. Rice doesn't agree with me.

I thought that grains had phytic acid that was not so good.

Thanks,
June ;D

HI Laura,

I'm glad to hear that I'm not alone. What do you eat on a given day? I'm curious.

Thanks,
June ;D

i eat lots of veggies, fish, poultry, lots of eggs, a bit of fruit and sometimes a little bit of nuts or some nutbutter.  Be true to yourself, after all you are your blood type and each A is different :) Just do what feels right for you

What do these prohibited grains mimic?

I'm with Isa and Laura too.....I eat lots of veggies, eggs, nuts/nut butters, avocado, goat/feta cheese, minimal fruits (usually a piece a day).......  minimal grains...usually a slice of whole rye every other day.  not because I don't digest grains well, I digest them just fine.  But I came to the realization that they weren't offering me a lot nutrition-wise, so I just sort of stopped consuming them.  I don't do well with beans, so I barely eat them.  Like Isa, they give me gas.

Vicki,

They mimic gluten and can cause damage just like gluten to a sensitive individual.

Have a good day,
June ;D

Lola,

I am in San Jose, California. I thought that if you were nearby, I might see you and your husband.

Laura,

What do you mean you are your blood type and each A is different? Thats what I don't understand about this blood type thing. :-/ If we are all A's why do we have such a difference in what we can eat?

Thanks,
June

June,
actually we are quite a distance away.....
down here it is now close to 11 am, and in California it s almost 9 am, so it s quite a difference!

you are always welcome to come visit!
google Cuernavaca, called the city of 'eternal spring', that s where I live......
weather is beautiful all year round......has to do with the latitude and location.......
it s only a twenty minute drive south of Mexico City.......

Do you have a link discussing this?  

Thank you,

HI Vicki,

Here is the link :   http://www.healthnowmedical.com/info/gluten_foods.html.
This is the medical center that finally figured out what was wrong with me after ten years of suffering.

Take care,

Quoted Text
If we are all A's why do we have such a difference in what
we can eat?


there are many nuances to A.......
A1, A2......etc
secretor and non secretor....

Quoted Text
almost 80 percent of As are A1
almost 20 percent of As are A2
less than 1 percent of As belong to one of 18 other known A subtypes most in Africa.

The A subgroup can only be determined by
testing a blood sample with the anti A1 lectin
called Dolichos biflorus. If the cells are
nonreactive with the lectin then the cells are A2.
A2 can never become A1 nor can A1 ever become
A2, the glycosyltransferase enzyme specific
for A2 is not as efficient at converting H
antigens, to A antigens as the A1
glycosyltransferase.

A subtypes here:

the new book on genotype will give us more information.....
