BTD Forums  /  Eat Right 4 Your Type  /  Type o what in the world can I eat for breakfast
Posted by: 24625 (Guest), Thursday, November 29, 2012, 2:42pm
I'm obviously a newbie. I stumbled onto this diet literally yesterday. It made sense to me, so I said why not. However, Day two and I'm lost. What in the world can I eat for breakfast. First of all, exactly how bad is coffee? The current idea of not drinking coffee every morning is like the idea of not breathing. I'm assuming this gets easier in time. I would normally have sausage & pancakes, waffles, cereal, home fries or toast for breakfast ( but only rye, wheat all of a sudden leaves me doubled over in pain). I'm very allergic to eggs & most nuts. I haven't set foot in a health food store in probably 5 years, so the idea of eating flax seed for breakfast pains me.

Wow Congrats.. You will like this way of eating once you get the hang of it..

For breakfast.. have a small steak and loads of vegetables..

IF you have many sensitiveties ir issues, you might be a NONNIE!.. welcome to the club.

Ezekiel bread or Manna bread from a health food store is the biggest purchase you should go for if possible today.. THAT as a grain replacement will be enormous all by it own food value.

Eggs well you do not have to have any, ......

WHY are you coming to this diet?  to drop weight? to be healthier? to solve a health issue now or in the future? what is your age? do you eat the above foods all at once? because you are hungry?

what else are you eating during a normal day.. the more info the more we can help..

Giving up coffee might be to hard at first.,. try to go to decaf first a little at a time and switch over the course of 2 weeks.. you might get headaches otherwise.. Caffeine does that..

Green tea to wake you up will work, that caffeine will do less damage long term.. try all sort of different ones.. Peppermint tea is tasty, enjoy a cup..

Give your self TIME to make all the choices.. Shop when you feel like you have a grasp..

Shopping will be considerably cheaper.. Don't worry about portions for now.. get used to just give UP 1 avoid item a week.. This is not on overnight story.. it is a tale worth living over a long period of experimenting..  

The great things will come when YOU KNOW what items on the avoid list will do WHAT.. make you bloated, tired, needing more coffee, sleepy even, or depressed or what ever you might experience..

IF it is in your budget, order Trehalose - a form of healthy sugar - from the Internet 2 pounds about 25.- yes I know but its HEALTHY sugar like sweet.. ,

or if you can afford get it from NAP, in the more expensive form of Trehalose Complex .. about 30.- = two tea spoons a day will clear up old junk, great with lemon or grapefruit diluted glass of water..makes it sweet like sugar..but is HEALTHY and make you feel great at the same time.. (tel 887 226 8973)  

For now I would not use any other sups.. not even Dr D's .. get used to this way of evaluating foods on their own value first.. ENJOY eating mountains of BENEFICIALS or super Diamond Beneficials and as many Neutrals you LIKE!

welcome.. good luck! LOL

Thanks for the advise. First of all, no I do not eat all of those foods at once. In answer to your other questions. I am 26. In answer to the WHY , the answer would be all of the above. I put on weight very easily. I've suddenly became intolerant to foods that I have eaten all of my life. I can no longer eat eggs, nuts, wheat and far too many fruits to mention. Breads, pastas and oats leave me severely bloated and uncomfortable. Soda and artifical sweetener all of a sudden, leave me doubled over in abdominal pain. I have an under active thyroid, pcos and now am insulin resistant. A friend of mine suggested that I look into the Type O diet. Suddenly as I was reading it all started to make sense.

My husband likes "Rice Chex" General mills cereal with unsweetened original Silk PureAlmond milk.  This is the one in the refrigerator section. I like this one because it has the least of the additives. (That I can buy here)  You can get turkey sausage, etc often you will find this in the freezer area of your store. You need to think "out of the box".  I also like warm rice with ghee (clarified butter) sweetened with Agave, or blackstrap molasses with cinnamon, and hemp seeds. The seeds give me some extra protein, and the cinnamon will help regulate you blood sugar. I do the same with oatmeal.

wow so good that you have such a knowledgeable friend.. You will soon put all that pain behind you.. I expect you are NONNIE so depending on the book you might consider the special mention of nonnie food choices.   As for Diabetes at any age that in my mind will be making you Gatherer.. always hungry never satisfied, with shorter bottom legs?  

This will help you quickest, to know that you might follow Gatherer food lists in the GENO book, the newest one.. or Swami the on-line personalized diet program geared to your specific needs.

While the newest book is great the older ones are more informative,, try them out of your library..

you can discuss them here,, we will help.

To begin with:  No grains, other than the ones I mentioned above post.. (maybe some rice here and there, and quinoa, with parmesan sprinles..

No dairy! period for a long while..

if possible nothing white / including no sugar Dark chocolate is OK..

just about 1 fruit a day... lots of green juices if you can afford organic..

no salt..... SEA salt is OK..

Change to spices to turmeric if you like and change regular pepper to red pepper / flakes.  

Use Cinnamon and Saffron as it is good for appetite and blood sugar.

ARE you on meds?  or injections for diabetes?

You will be able to make great improvements on all levels of health in no time at all..  8)

I wonder what has brought this on so suddenly shell?

Sounds like perhaps a bout of illness followed by antibiotics follwoed by a bacterial overgrowth perhaps.

what ever it is the best way to make it more manageable is to reduce sugar, stop wheat and diary completely. replace with a little quinoa and white rice perhaps.

polyflora and intrinsa are perhaps the starting place for you in a ddition to the O Diet. Long term of course you may do better on Swami and get a secretor test to fine tune.

The question should be what can't I eat for breakfast? Anything on your list will work for breakfast.

A few thoughts:

You don't have to change your entire diet right away. I personally didn't even attempt to wean off coffee until I'd been on the diet for about 2 or 3 weeks. It was too much for me to deal with coffee AND the rest of the foods in my diet all at once. After a few weeks, I knew what I was doing, food shopping was no longer a huge production, and I'd gotten over any "detox" from the healthier food choices. That's when I made "weaning off coffee" a whole new project.

As for breakfast ideas, think beyond "breakfast foods." Anything you'd enjoy for lunch or dinner can be eaten for breakfast. You can also look for compliant versions of your favorite "breakfast foods" such as turkey sausage with pancakes made from rice flour. It's ideal to eat more veggies and fewer grains, especially at breakfast time (save the grains for later in the day; it leads to fewer cravings) but you may want to ease into that more slowly, and initially focus on eliminating the "avoid" foods and increasing the amount of "beneficial" foods.

Thank you, to everyone for all of your assistance. As far as the comment that " my question should be what can't I have for breakfast?" I travel quite often. So I eat out most of the time. Thus making eating the foods on my list, that aren't exactly breakfast foods a little difficult. This morning I ordered turkey sausage & grilled veggies. The look I got from my server was priceless.

I'm a bit confused when it comes to figuring out my geno type. The gatherer doesn't seem to completely fit me. I've always had an hourglass shape, with my chest and hips being the same measurement, with a much smaller waist. I'm very tall 5'10 with long legs and a slightly longer torso. My upper and lower legs are the same length. I most definitely have larger bones. My ring finger is much longer than my index finger. I have fair skin, brown eyes & very thick wavy brown hair.

Based on the measurements you just gave (torso longer tan legs, lower leg equal to upper leg, ring finger longer than index fingers on both hands, Rh negative, and female) you're an Explorer. If you were Rh positive, you'd be a Hunter. It makes sense that the Gatherer doesn't completely fit you!

Do you have to eat in restaurants for all meals when you're traveling? You may do better having breakfast in your hotel room, if you can get to a supermarket the night before and either get a small fridge in your room or a cooler and  buy a bag of ice when you  buy your groceries. You could open up a can of chicken, tuna, or sardines and eat that with a bag of prewashed salad and the juice of one lemon, or maybe buy a bag of frozen veggies (it will thaw at room temp by morning) instead of a salad, or use canned veggies along with the canned meat.

It's unfortunate that you can't have nuts or eggs, as nuts pack well and eggs are easy to find almost anywhere.

Get used to that look...  Ordering from a restaurant when you have multiple restrictions is a challenge.  I often find a grocery when traveling and get whatever I can find that will be good for me...  Pop top cans of meat or fish with fresh vegetables or fruit...  Dried fruit (if you can eat it) can be carried with you.  Ice buckets in the room are good for things that need to stay cold.

Eating this way may not be ideal, but it is better than eating 50+% avoids and hurting all of the time...

Yes, turkey sausage and vegetables for breakfast.  Great find!

It helps to keep some compliant jerky or pemmican handy.  Good luck!

Leftovers from dinner the night before.  Usually some veggies and meat.  Too bad on the eggs, that is my go to meal.  I will often have slices of cold roast beef on a rice cake if I am in a rush in the am.  I have pre cut veggies in the fridge at all times to grab and go.

My O sons are big leftover eaters for breakfast especially on snowboard mornings.  My O sec son loves oatmeal , which he can eat with not problems, nonnie
son and I cannot eat without stomach problems.

Soup is great for breakfast, often leftover meat and veggies from dinner can be included in a quick broth based soup.

Our Type O homemade beef stew for breakfast.  Mr. KK makes this and he does it a little differently every time. He likes carrots in his stew even though they are an avoid; I like the parsley.  To each their own.

6-Hour Slow cooker Kimonokat House Beef Stew
Ingredients:
Beef
White Onions
Japanese Yams
Parsley
Rice flour (or other compliant flour; can be optional if you like clear broth)
(optional vegetables: carrots, sweet anise, parsley root, depending on your preference)
Salt to taste

Get water in your slow cooker hot/almost boiling.  We boil it on the stove and put that in the slow cooker to speed things up.

Cut beef in small chunks & Pan fry flap meat (great flavor, not bad price) in rice bran oil then drop in the slow cooker. One frying option is to dust meat in rice flour.  Add onion at the same time you add the meat.

About an hour later, add optional, long cooking time vegetables (parsley root, etc.).

Two hours later add japanese yams.

Last hour or so of cooking, add rice flour to thicken and finely chopped parsley. We grind our own rice flour from basmati rice.  

Delicious, and great to have on hand when you can't cook every day. Once the stew cools down, you can put it in containers, freeze and pull it out when you need it.  Sharing with the best of intentions!

Can you have farmers cheese? I like it on a rice cake, melted. I like Kroger's farmer cheese from the deli, it comes in a "horn" you can just get what you need for travel, I like it toasted, but you could microwave it. Most hotels have one you can use.

Almond butter travels well and works on a rice cake, for some reason it just doesn't hold me a well. (I am a gatherer) My BD is an explorer and she says she needs real meat to keep her going.  When we travel she usually gets a chicken breast from the deli at walmart. It's in the cooler area, no skin, with spices. She keeps away from the lunch meat, to many additives for her.

One I forgot, McD's  order a "Angus Pattie"  This will be a angus meat pattie in a box. Only $1 dollar here and they're not that bad.

I went through a spell of almond butter on rice cakes, but I also sprinkled a tsp. of hemp hearts on each one.  That always held me longer, Deblyn3.   Now my breakfasts are usually veggies and left over meat/poultry/fish.
Or if I'm in a hurry I'll have a blender drink with pineapple juice, frozen raspberries, blueberries or mango.  I throw in some of Dr.D's protein powder for O's, some chia seeds and a squirt of olive oil.

I tend to have more substitutes for more traditional breakfasts for my first meal. But basically all of them involve nuts or eggs :S One thing you could have, if you own a blender, is fruit smoothie. I make mine with bananas as the base, then you can add whatever fruit you like. Ground chia/flax/hemp seeds added would provide some fat and protein to fill you for longer. It freezes really well, I make 4-5 days in a go.

Have you considered that your symptoms may be related to yeast overgrowth-candida? The byproducts the yeast release into your system can cause all types of food and chemical sensitivities. I dont know much details about your situation but just throwing that idea out there. You may want to get your secretor status tested... This problem is quite common in O nonnies (like me.) This is a questionnaire to test likelihood that you have candida: http://www.thecandidadiet.com/candidaquestionnaire.htm

People ask me all the time what I eat for breakfast. I eat ANYTHING for breakfast, but NOT grains. I open the fridge - I reheat leftovers, I cook up a stir fry, I make a salad, I reheat some home-made soup, I use veggies in my juicer... Whatever you would normally eat for lunch, a snack, or dinner you can eat for breakfast. There is no law that says you have to have grains.  Besides, your stomach doesn't know what time it is and it doesn't care what you feed it.  If you start your day with Grains, You will crave them later.

Muffins made from almond flour and arrow root or tapioca. Add teff and brown rice flour if you aren't avoiding all grains. Add berries.
