BTD Forums  /  Eat Right 4 Your Type  /  poor appetite and underweight.....
Posted by: bramble19, Wednesday, December 26, 2012, 3:20pm
I have been a busy Mummy the past 12 months and have lapsed with my type o diet.....I am an a-typical O I thrive on vigourous excercise and plenty of red meat, I carry my son and hill walk! However my diet has lapsed fot the past 12 months due to my hectic life! thus my anxiety has returned and my weight which I have  always struggled to keep on  has begun to drop off again.
I am gluten intolerant and lactose intolerant and need to get beneficial calories in me that are quick and easy to prepare. I have a poor appetite and so it is very easy to skip meals. It seems my sugar intake over the past year has gone sky high and so currently dizzy and in bed,  with my husband looking after the children downstairs  I am recovering  from the latest sugar crash....... so I have decided to get this diet up an running again. It would seem the sugar thing is a major problem.
After trawlling the forum pages I thought it might be less time consuming to ask what I need to know? I hope you don't mind? Everybody on the forum pages have been so kind to me in the past x

I have found sugar has been my diet cruch since my busy boy was born in april 2011. He never stops and sleeps very little I also have a 6 year old daughter who is home schooled and I am a professional Artist our income is not great......so........my questions.....

1. easily prepared low cost breakfast, lunch and dinner ideas preferably family friendly?
2. advice on how to kick a sugar addiction?

I am based in the U.K and have found some recipe ingredients unobtainable here?

xxxxx

If money is a problem, you may want to prepare protein/veggie breakfast for yourself and something more economical for the kids.

Sugar is probably feeding the bad bacteria and keeping you from absorbing the nutrition you need. You need lots of fat and protein to heal your gut, break the sugar addiction, and gain needed weight.

I've found that kids tend to like simple foods, not blended foods such as casseroles. I usually make one pot of grain, another of protein, and another two of vegetables. Everybody takes what they like and leaves the rest, and picky kids can eat the broccoli without it touching the meat or rice. Doing separate dishes also makes it easier for you to select the healthiest proportions for yourself while encouraging the kids to fill up on less expensive fare. Kids tend to need more carbs than adults anyway.

You need to cut out the sugar and eat lots of fat and protein to get your blood sugar stable. The kids don't need refined sugar either, but they will do well with whole grains and fruits, possibly in higher proportions than you need. If you find it hard to "not eat" sugary foods when you see them, then keep the unhealthy foods out of the house (you'll need your husband's cooperation for this.)

I don't see the test in the Right4EU store, so if I were you, I'd contact Dr. Greenfield to see how to get the testing done...  

You could also ask about the Blood Typing kit(s) for the children.

I use ghee for high heat cooking and olive oil for salad oil, etc...  These are good for all types - and ghee is especially helpful for healing the intestinal lining, etc...

Assuming that the kids are the biological children of yourself and your husband, they can only be A or O. You can start eliminating any foods from the house that are bad for both As and Os.

Breakfast for blood type O

Eggs, if you ned to gain weight add plenty of ghee. generally use a bit more olive oil also with other food to gain or maintain weight. while you attack sugar cravings.

if you want any chance of defeating sugar you must give up coffee in my experience. and you need an outlet for you negative energy as you fight the sugar as it will make you very bad tempered. deep breathing, catechol and Methyl B12 help me.

also replace sweet fruit with sour or bitter, plum, lemon, lime. blast it and it will take a month, do it slowly and it will take 6 month to 2 years.

have a glass of water with a lemon squeezed in it first thing every morning on empty stomach also.

If you think you have small intestinal overgrowth / candida then you need a plan.

Yes and no. As need more veggie protein and Os need more animal protein, but there are still mutual avoids (such as pork) and LOTS of mutually compliant foods. Os have a limited list of beans, for example, but all those beans are also OK for As. Os need red meat and As shouldn't have it (though some As can have lamb in small amounts) but poultry and fish are fine for all of you. You don't need to worry about avoiding chicken since there are no Bs or ABs in your family.

If you put out meat, beans, grains, and veggies in separate dishes on the dinner table, your hubby can take more beans and smaller meat portions, and you do the opposite. Although, since you need to gain weight, not lose it, you may not want to limit the carbs from compliant foods. Most Os have the opposite problem.

For feeding the kids, offer them healthy, whole foods and let them decide how much they want of each type of food. Toddlers' dietary needs can change drastically from day to day- make sure their diets are balanced each WEEK, not each meal. Your job is to offer healthy food, their job is to eat what their bodies need. If you're still breastfeeding, remember that breastmilk IS a healthy, whole food and it's fine if the 1yo fills up on mommy milk and doesn't eat much some days.

Yes but she is mainly describing stress symptoms on top of sugar.

Alternate nostril breathing
(I don't know about the other stuff on the page, but when ANB goes well you'll probably feel a big wave of relax hit you). Leave the sugar alone. Both will aid the other. Eat your regular non-wheat grains. Don't eat too little protein.

do you have any other ideas of how I can cram some calories in? particularily handy snacks? I don't mind preparing a batch of something? Raw bars? have googled all day for compliant raw bars but no luck...not so keen on jerky! particularly portable foods that I can eat on the hoof.....?

thank you

I need to be careful that implementing the diet doesn't mean I will lose weight.

How well do you handle nuts? Almonds and walnuts are great for quick snacks, possibly with some dried fruit tossed in.

I ditto ruthiegirl's suggestion.  Get plenty of beneficial fat... you shouldn't lose weight.

Sharing with the best of intentions!

Hard boiled eggs - boil a whole carton and store in fridge for a few days.

Compliant nuts.

Left over meat - cook enough so there are always leftovers you can grab as a snack.

Have a snack of any of the above whenever you give your children a snack to overcome the skipping meals thing.  It doesn't matter if you feel hungry or not.  Just have a small snack.

Hello bramble19,

At our clinic we routinely test patients for Lewis blood group in our lab, but not in young children, as they can take time to develop the Lewis antigen. When we get Lewis negative results (in about 5%) we send the saliva to NAP.

We also sell the Lewis kits online: http://nature-cure.enstore.com/browse/secretor/1

:D I wish I could let you borrow this book … It’s called  “ Cook Right For Your Type” by Dr. D’adamo

This book is basically for ERYT but if you have SWAMI it will be different though. Also, this book has a lot of recipes for all blood type.  Here I have copied some from this book .

On page 214.Vegetable Fritters ( Highly Beneficial for O,A, B, AB)
Fritters can be a light supper on their own or an excellent accompaniment to chicken or fish. Depending on your blood type, squash, sweet potatoes, yams, carrots, and turnips are all good choices for this fritter recipe. Grate the vegetables finely. If there’s any excess liquid, drain and reserve before adding the rest of the ingredients.

3 cups grated vegetables
1 tablespoon finely minced onion
2  eggs
Olive oil
Salt

Mix grated vegetables with onion and eggs. The batter will be quite wet. In a large, heavy skillet, heat 3 tablespoons oil over medium heat. Lightly shape a handful of the batter for each fritter and gently drop into the oil, taling care not to splatter yourself. Flatten the the fritters with a spatula. Let them brown over medium heat until the bottoms begin to color. Thun the fritters over and fry for several more minutes. Drain on paper towels, sprinkle with salt, and serve. You can also keep them warm in a preheated 2501-degree F overn while you cook the rest of the batter.
Serves 4 to 6.

On page 187 Pureed Pinto Beans with Garlic ( Heghly beneficial for O,A, AB) and Avoid for B
With brown rice and braised kale, these beans make a very filling and quick dinner. Also try this as a different and delicious dip for raw vegetables.

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 medium onion, diced
6 cloves garlic, crushed
1 can pinto beans, drained and rinsed, or 1 cup dry pinto beans, soaked and cooked
1 teaspoon ground cumin (or to taste)
Generous pinch of salt
3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

In a cast-iron skillet, heat 2 tablespoons oil over very low heat. Add diced onion and cook about 10 minutes, stirring frequently, until onion is golden brown. Add garlic and sauté a few minutes more. Add beans and spices, then cook another few minutes. Transfer mixture to blender and puree until very smooth. You might have to scrape down the blender once or twice to get it all. Serve sprinkled with the cilantro. Serves 4.

On page 246 Simple fish soup ( Heghly Beneficial A, B , AB ) and  Neutral for O
Exactly as its name describes it, this soup is simple, It can be served either hot or cold with a tossed green salad, crusty homemade spelt bread, and cheese-if it’s permitted on your Blood Type Diet.

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 carrot, diced small
2 small stalks celery, diced small
½ onion, diced small
1 tablespoon sherry (optional)
4 cups water
¾ lb. grouper, cut into 1-inch pieces
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
Heat oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add carrot, celery, and onion and sauté several minutes. Add water. Add sherry, if using, and cook until vegetables are soft, about 10 minutes. Add grouper and simmer a few minutes longer, until the fish is thoroughly cooked. Sprinkle parsley over each serving.
Serves 2.

Hope this helps: :)
