Quoted from ShaneSo...what do I put on my puffed rice?
Quoted from ShaneI'm not feeling real thrilled today, I just received my secretor test results, and was disappointed see non-secretor as my test results.
Quoted from ShaneIt feels somewhat like a life prison sentence right now...
Feeling hungry after a bike ride, I went to the kitchen to get some breakfast, and thought...well, so much for soymilk to put on my puffed rice and so much for honey.
Quoted from ShaneAnother frustration I have is how much of a pain in the butt do I have to be while staying at people's homes while on vacation, or when I do my medical missions next summer, how picky of an eater can I be when I'm serving people who don't have life basics, like food, shelter, or medical care? **Ok...breath** I just had to get that out.
Quoted from ShaneHow do all of you incorporate this wonderful diet into your life, without it consuming all of your time, and controlling your life. It could easily become as obsession, and that's not healthy for anyone.
Quoted from ISA-MANUELA(dance)(clap)(clap)(dance)(smarty) :D :D hellööö and a very warm welcome outta Switzerland from another nonnie ;D ;D....as PT said, don't get mad but glad and dearle, this is only at the very early beginnings a bit annoying....but when you got your favers in your mind it will go hop...hop...hop......:D ;D....the biggest issue here is, and that's a good thing, slow down (sigh...ough...how's that possible for nonnies ??) ;D....and read the labels....this is one of the most important thingies we should really learn as early as possible.
If you take yourselve for serious, so you will also for your healthissues.....and dearle believe me, that pays muchmore as you can imagine right now :D (dance)(clap)(smarty)(dance)(dance) :o :o ;D ;D :D ;D
welcome again and feel well and become more and more a healthy nonnie :D ;) :K)
Quoted from debiIf Cappy=Capricorn...me too. Welcome to the nonnie hood. It will get easier...the pitty parties become less frequent as you figure out what real health feels like and how to make it happen on a daily basis. I am still learning but feel so much better! The ideas that come off of this board make it all happen!
Quoted from debraWelcome again to the nonnie club Shane Girl. We are here with you. Give yourself some time...once you get your head wrapped around it...everything is fine. :D
Hey...instead of having that puffed rice for breakfast...have the steak and salad. Your nonnie blood will have a party of its own. ;)
Quoted from Shane
Ooooh! One step at a time, for the very recently former vegetarian. I find myself only eating meat at dinner, more than once a day is a little much for me right now, but perhaps in the near future. Debra, are you the one who's going to school for Naturopathic Medicine?
Quoted from debra
How I wish...too far away and one in college and one in university in the fall. :(
Yes...Shane Girl...those baby steps are the way to go. :D
Quoted from ISA-MANUELAhe-he-heee sounds just wunneful, fresh garlic into the salades...have had that too this afternoon, you can call me stinkbombe ;) ;D :D ......weew what a success in the super market, really more place with such an odor ;) ;D ;D ..... ahem...next time I'll prepare the salades and will invite you to taste it ....here in Switzerland :D....you just have to bring your cayenne pepper along :D....sounded delicious your recipe ;)....nooo cayenne for me, but dried ginger...in powderform ....::) sluurp ;D (dance)(smarty)(dance)
Quoted from BeckyWelcome from yet another Cappy Nonnie !!
I too did my pouting.....especially the soy milk. Lost my apples, crab, and the one last cheese I had. Losing my soy milk was devistating. Made a great, refreshing pick me up between meals.
I am still learning like you, and I only tackle ONE issue at a time. First was to give up my soy milk and apples.
God Bless MEAT and Sweet Potatoes.......otherwise I would be lost.
I have given up eating the food at work, and make a point to cook enough meat and mashed sweet potatos to make it thru the week. I also snack on bananas, pumpkin seeds, carrots and the like between meals. Really do need a bit more protein.
I have had some difficulty finding the "one best place" to find O nonnie eats. Perhaps I shall take it upon myself to compose it. Would need some vacation time, or 30 free minutes a day for a month to compile them all !!
At any rate, welcome to our happy family. We have some of the most wonderful people here !!
Quoted from BeckyAlso, just noticed your signature. Could there be anything more fitting for a Cappy? Doubtful !!
Quoted from ironwood55Along with your BTD nonnie improvements/adjustments you might add some Deflect O to help scrub away some of those lectins and then maybe you can start losing some weight.
Quoted from ShaneIt is taking me awhile to get into this because it requires so much discipline!
Quoted from ShaneI eat steak or beef, then feel all icky and guilty at first, then the next day I feel fabulous physically. I also worry about people judging me for being an animal hater :'(...I know many vegetarians, it's sort of a culture you know?).
Quoted from JoanWelcome aboard Shane Girl,
I am just back from a week at camp, the kind with a dining hall for 130 campers of all ages. I knew that there would be access to a kitchen of some sort, so I took a package of grass-fed ground beef so that I could make my ground beef-kale-onion breakfast mix. I made wraps with nori sheets. I went over menus with the cook and ate chicken twice and a couple of other things that she prepared for a few of us. They had a decent supply of fruits and vegetables. Sardines and plastic wrapped sweet potatoes were very helpful; I'm so glad that I took them. One morning I watched the food service truck make a large delivery and I was so glad that I was not eating all those prepared frozen foods (have you ever seen smiley face fries?).
Perhaps on a medical mission you won't have to worry about prepared frozen food and all the additives that trip us up in our grocery stores. Maybe you can take sardines and nori sheets and pineapple juice.
It's not easy being a nonnie, but feeling better is worth the effort.
Quoted from outdoordrea
If people would start to think critically and not because other people in their "sphere" thought the same way, we would realize that animal haters and eating animals are two different things. To me, an animal hater is one who kills just for the sake of killing, but not to use the meat and skin, etc. Vegetarians could be considered to be plant haters, if one thought about it too deeply.
As an aside, my DH is a non BTD-er, who is a vegetarian and an O-. He says he's a vegetarian "because of his deep-seated hatred for plants".
Quoted from geminisueIf there willing to read what you present to them and if they feel free to ask you questions and you answer to the best of your ability, there is no more you can do. Each person has the right to make their own choices, and we can't feel guilty, if we feel they made the wrong one.
Maybe you can use a bargaining technique with your dad, such as give BTD 6 weeks and if you see improvement please continue it, I love you and I want you in my life, forever, if possible!
Quoted from Shane
I convinced them today!! Yeah! ;D I told them that Type O's tend to be allergic to penicillin and sulfa, and tend to be anemic...my mother is anemic a lot, and my father and I are allergic to both sulfa and PCN...my mother said "Ok, I'm sold...where can I find the books?"
