Well, it's been at least a week since no morning brown rice sourdough bread and I am doing great!  Feel good and don't get the head rushes anymore or the foggy feeling!  Thank you who gave me the heads up to get back on track again with that!  I think I've lost several pounds almost overnight when I gave that up!  Working out daily and really toning up, feeling energetic!

And, taking the maca powder!  I think it is totally helping me with moodiness and hormonal outbursts!  MY mood seems to be elevated and I have more energy.  My husband has been taking it, and he said, "I think the Maca is making me, you know, like more testoserone filled!  Rhymes with 'corny'!!   ;D  I said, "Oh, brother!"  We better stop this stuff!  Ha!

Good news all 'round, then, eh Tina?  You're happy and so is your man!  :-)

That's great about the diet change.  A lot of O's on this Forum do great on a grain-free program.

Tina - where the heck do you get this meca powder?  My hubby could really use a testosterone boost sometimes.  :B  Sorry if I missed the discussion on maca powder, but what is the benefit of taking that?

Here is a link to the maca powder that I have been using and a description of maca.  Hope this helps!  It is recommended by Dr. D. for hormonal issues for both men and women.

Thank you - I'm going to have to check into this for both of us I think.  

How long will a jar of it last for you?  And do you just mix it into whatever you're fixing or how do you take it?

My Adrenals are shot and it doesn't seem like it has effected me ;D, or has it?

If so, I wonder what I will be like when I am well? :o

I have just been taking the maca powder in water or mixed in my salad dressing (ollive oil, raw apple cider vinegar I know an avoid, but I really like it, and spices).  I like the taste of it actually.  The jar says 1 tsp a day, so it should last a while, maybe a month or two.

And I can tell you, it does seem to rev things up a bit for my hubby and me as well!  I am not as unthrilled about his advances as I used to be at times!!  Although, I love him dearly, you know, as women, we're just crockpots as my hubby says.  We take time to warm up, and he is such a microwave!  We laugh about that!

LOL MoDon.......       so you do use maca? I was thinking of trying it but didn't know if I should w/ the adrenal thing and all. If it gives me energy, great, but don't want to be zinging around like I'm high on something. Nor do I want the feeling like I might be hopped up on caffeine. Wouldnt be good for how I feel and worst of all, I'd be afraid of how it would affect my adrenal repair. What'd'ya think? :-)

LOL MoDon.......       so you do use maca?

No, I am not taking maca or any other supplements, except for an occasional glandular that my doctor prescribes. My treatment approach for adrenal fatigue is based on dealing with my mercury toxicity from my previous dental fillings using ultra high potency (500-900M) homeopathic organ support remedies.

LOL.......prob not advisable w/o knowing how much :-)    You could add some good oils to her dressing tho. That would show her love (without her knowing of course).  I put good stuff in my DH's salad dressing and food all the time, without him knowing. Doesn't know the dif,  but his body does. :-)

Here's what I use.  I love the stuff.  I don't take it at night, though, b/c I get lots of energy from it: http://www.sunfood.com/cgi-bin/order/index.cgi?id=666380881702-1001&d=single&item_id=1017&c=Supplements&sc=Protein_Products&tc=

I use a scoop in my morning smoothie & 2 scoops before a yoga session and it makes a big difference in my workout!  As far as I can tell, all the ingredients are okay for Type Os.  If anyone knows any differently, please let me know!

Ingredients: Brazil Nut Protein Powder, Hemp Protein powder, Maca, Goji Berry Powder, Mesquite Powder, Maca Extreme (all ingredients are raw, vegan and certified organic)

Brazil nuts are a type O avoid.

Welcome Stephanie!!  So sorry to say, the very first ingred is an avoid. As the very first ingred, that means that is what the biggest part of this protein powder is made of. You might want to find something else if you're trying to be really compliant. Have you checked out the "Whole Egg Powder" thread? Lemme see if I can find it for you....

There ya go! :-)  Hope there is something useful for you in that thread. :-)

True, but wouldn't they be considered neutrals for now?  :K)

Stephanie_Jackson,

You might be interested in viewing the following 'Hemp Protein Powder' thread if you have not done so already:
http://www.dadamo.com/cgi-bin/Blah/Blah.pl?,v=display,b=nonnie,m=1167272606

The protein powder featured in the website has hemp powder in it--similar to the powder that you are currently using, but it does not contain any avoids.  Currently, hemp is compliant for all blood groups as it is not officially rated/tested.

Alia

When talking about cutting out grains for weight loss, does that mean wheat, or all grains? Does that include the essense and manna bread?
Posted by: Lola, Friday, February 23, 2007, 12:05am; Reply: 28
all compliant grains, of course.....
wheat is not an option to many types........
avoids are simply considered avoids.

do not follow the zero grain advice for weight loss, if weight isn t an issue for you.

So that does include the Manna Bread as well. I love that stuff. I make it myself too.

Thanks Lola

add your manna to your diet and see if you still loose the weight......
if not, then omit it.

we are all different......sprouted grains are healthier by far.
