Posted by: girly, Saturday, June 28, 2008, 8:30pm
It's been quite a few months since I have been on the site!! I was so addicted and felt I needed a break. I have wittled my 5'9 frame from a size 20 to a size 9! I feel amazing and want to encourage everyone to learn their secretor status..Learning that I was a NON-SECRETOR and that I absolutely must stay away from ALL forms of sugar changed my life..perhaps even more than the diet itself...the weight ( 70+ pounds just fell off)

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!
I am so glad for you and happy that you are doing so well.
I too hope to find the way, still learning from all the knowledgable people on this site.
I am gaining instead so trying to figure it out. I was just advised to find out my secretor or do GTD. Wish there were more areas in Eastern Canada interested in this....

girly...congratulations on your weight loss with this way of life.  Yes, learning your secretor status is the key...especially when you are a nonnie.  Me too, I have learned  that all kinds of sugars, even compliant ones, are not that good for me. Keep up the work. ;D

I would gladly post some before and after shots if I could figure out how to do it!! LOL...
I look so completely different !  Much of my weighloss success is also due to the fact that I have cut out my food allergins completely too! Haven't eaten any dairy or an egg in 7 months!!! ( Haven't had a migraine in 7 months either...hmmmmm...I wonder???

Oh, girly, I'm so happy for you!! This is real dancin' in the streets stuff!(dance)
That secretor test is a real life-changer, I know it was for me.

cindy, it's my understanding that the secretor and non-secretor diets are miles apart for A's. Also saves so much guesswork. Do it soon as you can, you'll never regret it. You can only learn useful stuff from having it done.
Cheers, all...

Congratulations girly! I'm trying to follow your lead and stay off all sugar also until I reach my goal weight. It's so hard! I've aleady cheated twice this month!  :(  Maybe it's harder because I'm an A? (In my case)

Yes, migraines are often caused by: 1)allergens, or 2) severe digestive issues - (may refer to #1).

3) lack of hydration

For me anyway......when I drink my allotted amount of water, it keeps things well under control. Of course eating compliantly helps as well.  :P :) ;D

Girly, welcome back!  And what great news!

When I switched my daughter to the nonnie diet she improved as well.  She can't eat eggs or dairy either (except ghee).  She still has migraines. :'( We haven't figured out what causes them, but I will keep hydration in mind.

Girly, can you eat soy?  Just out of curiosity, do you know your GenoType?

LOL........bless your heart!! I'm putting up my shield before I ask,;-) but I was looking in the You: The Owners Manual book again and it lists caffeine as a trigger. You're not letting her drink coffee are you?  ;) :)   But seriously, how about chocolate, green tea, anything w/ caffeine. Does she have them all the time or just when she has been to specific places? friends or relatives who might let her eat or drink whatever she wants?
Posted by: Ribbit, Tuesday, July 1, 2008, 11:04pm; Reply: 28
The only caffeine she ever gets is about 1/2 square inch of 100% chocolate (no sweetener) every so often, maybe once a month at the most.  She's had about three migraines, all in the last year and a half or so.  She may have had them before and just couldn't express what was happening.  I don't think it's caffeine.  I don't know what it is.  The eye dr said it wasn't her optic nerve.

Actually, since I started on the Teacher diet, I feel like I'm losing weight.

Ribbit,

That seems to be true of every little girl.  

Guys, on the other hand, are almost completely the opposite:  Your average 18 year-old male is usually going on 5 1/2.

Yes, yes!  You should absolutely do that... I think it would generate an awful lot of buzz and interest, because it seems so exotic.

that we can eat what we want...without any sideeffects... :P(constipated)(shrug)(naughty)

Oh, yes please!  I believe that a majority of people who have not had success on the blood type diet are those who did not take their secretor status into consideration.

It makes so much difference!

Hope you are continuing to do well!  :)  That's a big accomplishment... man how time flies, huh?   :-/ :)

what is the most quickest way I can find out about the secretor test? doctors? Im in Australia.
I found I have put on a little weight and the only things I really changed was I started taking Blackmores Cod Liver oil Tablets and also started eating salmon which I never ate before. I feel Im getting really bloated and have definatley put on weight suddenly. Cod liver oil and salmon are meant to be great for Hunters. Now Im wondering whether I am really a hunter? can anyone suggest anything?

I ordered a secretor status test, but in the meantime Ill take out of my diet those things that I added.
I think I might be a type O secretor as the foods that I added go against it: like salmon, cod liver oil + guarana.
I am feeling really sick and very sluggish and fat.
My weight is at about 55kgs and Im around 1.65m's tall, I feel my best at around 50kgs.
