exactly.......and keep following your swami servings
more reading for you :)
Do non-secretors require more protein than secretors?
Do non-secretors require more fat than secretors?
Quoted from C_sharp
In general-- nonsecretors need more meat protein, but less dairy and vegetable proteins.
But why worry about the general case?
Find out how it would affect you personally--Run SWAMI set to secretor and nonsecretor and see how it changes you serving and diet recommendations.
If in fact, it is the general case that you are interested in and not you specific health recommendations read Live right for Your Type. This book explains how secretor status changes metabolism in humans. It is not as simple as nonsecretors needing more fat and more protein.
Quoted Texttrying to understand why secretors need more protein when we have a more difficult time breaking it down.
you definitely meant to write non secretors, right Patty? ;D
don t confuse us more!!!! haha
Quoted from LloydSWAMI seems to give everyone much lower portions of ghee/butter.
I am just trying to understand why secretors ( I assume you mean non secretors here ) need more protein when we have a more difficult time breaking it down. It seems counter-intuitive to me. I remember being confused about it when I read LR4YT. I am still confused by it I don't have a scientific background and some of of the information was over my head. I would love a simple explanation, if anyone can provide that. LR4YT for Dummies!
Quoted Textwhy are my portions limited to a 1/2 tsp per week in SWAMI if it is a superfood?
ghee for me is under dairy, not under fat
we don t get very much dairy in general :)
I think what Patty is asking is...
she used to do BT and her cholesterol was great, then she switched to swami and her cholesterol is rising. I believe she's trying to figure out the differences between BT and swami and why so she can adjust her diet and hopefully her cholesterol will follow in the right direction. Swami greatly reduced her fats is sounds so she did as well. sounds too that this may be what raised her cholesterol. Knowing why, I believe, is what she's looking to find out. Of course, I could be wrong...
My swami doesn't change my fats or my proteins, just a few foods.
Quoted from shoulderblade
Maybe think of it as an absorption issue. If your body is only getting, say 80%, of the protein relative to a secretor then you would have to eat more to get the same useful quantity.
I just wish swami incorporated all those great side tid bits from ER and LR. when we look at swami we tend to forget some of the basic principles. Not swamis fault, there's just so many things to remember and re look up and re look up! ex: we see agave as a diamond 'eat often' but in ER it says no condiments are beneficial and to eat small portions and choose low sugar varieties. Should be common sense but that darn diamond throws things off! All of the books/swamis are great resources, i just need someone to bind an O version for me incorporating them all. lol
Thank you, shoulderblade! This helps me tremendously to understand why I need more protein! You should write a book, LR4YT for Dummies ;D
Quoted Textbut if it is a superfood, why only 1/2 tsp once a week.
Lola, I think many will agree with me on this.As an example, When frequencies go from all you want to a specific amount , and we are trying to follow all the rules, we just look for possible reasons we need to change things and also for validation that what we are 'tweaking' is ok. As you know, all the basic o principles apply to me involving minimal to no use of dairy, legumes, beans, nuts,sugars, ketosis etc and when I minimize or avoid food groups, I have to up the food groups that i do eat from. SWAMI is great for when I do eat those foods that I minimize so I know I'm eating the best choices. Sometimes I wonder if I'm eating too much fat or protein since I don't eat carbs but no matter what I try I have to because I'm hungry. I know that's where 'listening to your body' comes in. We trust the diets, all of them or we wouldn't be on it but sometimes validation from you, "the great brain" is important to us. If we are researching and continuing to learn, we just need to make sure we're understanding it correctly. You have an amazing brain and we trust you as much as the diet. Thanks for all your past and continued support:)
Quoted from paul clucasI have replace ghee with limited amounts of olive oil for some time now and have found that a benefit. Meats provide amino acids and Isa is constantly saying how non-secretors benefit with amino acid supplementation. A health food store, that I occasionally shop at, is owned by body builder. He is obviously an Explorer from his proportions and features. I cannot find such a selection of ammino acid supplements as I have in his store anywhere else.
Any kind of animal protein is an important food resource for me, and I shamelessly plan my meals with the protein determination first. Although my cravings do prompt me to fry with ghee and eat much more meat, I am not prepared to risk stop loosing weight to play around with that.
Perhaps the key to lowering your cholesterol is limiting the variety of grains to Quinoa and other obscure gluten free grains.
