I have been on the Type O plan for a couple of days (for the third time in my life) & I am starting to get really hot & get the sweats & feeling kind of sick.  Has anyone else experienced this?  If so what did you do to remedy this?  Whenever I feel sick I want to run back to sugar!

So do I just push through it?  My main goal in changing to the E4YT is to maximize my health!  Any ideas on how to make it a bit of an easier transition?  I don't have any health issues.  

I have been following recipes from Cook Right for Your Type as best as I can.  I was wondering more if there is anything I can substitute maybe for the sugar withdrawals?

up your protein everytime you think you need sugar.

slices of roast beef or turkey breast are handy in such cases.

avoid free ofcourse!

I hope not!  I am only 32!!!!  I ordered the protein powder from the store.  Just awaiting the arrival :)  Then I plan on drinking a couple of shakes a day.

Hey Jennifer...glad to see you are posting.  I am with the rest...sugar withdrawal and cravings (could be candida) and....protein should be upped.   When I get those cravings I eat protein...especially the red meat.  Little bites and chew slowly.  Sometimes I have to eat a fair amount of it.  Jerky comes in right handy here.  

How is your exercise regimen?

Secretor status would be a bonus. ;)

Debra :)

Thanks Debra!  My exercise is really sporadic.  I am a bit bummed out about living in Houston as it truly has just plain gotten crime ridden & dangerous.  I am uninspired to leave my house once I get home.  Long story short, , my husband & I were chased by a gun wielding punk kid who had road rage & the cops & 911 did nothing about it.  Truly one of the most traumatic experiences of my life.  Then two weeks before our wedding (March 11), my car was stolen right out of my apartment complex while we were sleeping.  Anyway, I do have things at home I can do, but I am much better when I am training for an event.

My secretor status is on the way!  I ordered the home test along with my protein powder.  I hope to receive all those today :)

What kind of jerky do you eat?  Do you make yours?  That sounds like a great alternative.

A belated welcome back to the BTD wagon! :D

Sounds like you've really been dealing with some challenges jennifer!  Even if you can find a park to walk in or a gym to get on a treadmill or stepper, that would go a long way towards helping you deal with the stress of these recent events.  You could also consider some L-tyrosine.

Thanks so much KimonoKat!  I will look into that.  What is L-Tyrosine?

I wonder if I have low levels of MAO.  Another great read!  It's very informative & helpful.  Thanks Lola!

Drink plenty of pure water (1 oz for every 2 pounds of your body weight) spread throughout the day.  But don't drink with meals.

Be sure to get in some beneficial fruits and lots of green vegetables.

Keep canned salmon on hand to deal with cravings.

Take Deflect to aid in detoxing.
