Quoted from Henriette BsecIf he will eat fish eggs and dairy he will be a fine B ;D
What is VERY important as a B is to choose the right oils- most seed oils are no go- use butter, ghee and olive oil as the basics.
and choose the right nuts and pulses.
Eating less grain and juices and more fat from dairy, olive oil, fish etc is a very good way to help wih obesity and diabetic issues.
Especially lots of fish oil, B vitamin complex and zinc and magnesium is very helpful for B´s moods.
Quoted from RedLilacMake an Excel sheet of both your foods. You can color code similarities or differences. It takes a while to do but you’ll refer to it for years, so it is worth it.
Quoted from Andrea AWsecSlowly as he feels better maybe he will eat some meat-- when we are depressed we can not see what is good for us.
Meat production is not all the same.
Sacrificing our health for animals is not the best for the world.
The journey has just begun stick with it.
Quoted from Tom MartensYou would think being an unhealthy vegetarian would be motivation enough to switch to a healthy happy B.
Avoiding chicken, corn and wheat would be a great start.
the wheat avoidance is a biggy - finding alternatives in healthfood shops is timeconsuming and expensive.
Just to encourage you a bit I hope, rest assured that this time cosuming and getting creative and inventive re your nutrition are things that you are going to thank yourself for infinitely - for decades, especially when you are elderly, as years go by and you get healthier and healthier.finding alternatives in healthfood shops is timeconsuming and expensive. No doubt this will get easier in time.
Another problem is that he is very sensitive to Dairy and has avoided it in the past because it produces very heavy mucus. Is this likely to change if he eats more for his type?
Quoted from ABJoe
Much of the time, eating a beneficial food causes the body to remove avoid "junk" from the body, rather than the body storing it. If this shows in the form of mucus carrying junk out of the body after eating a beneficial dairy product, then it may reduce over time as more beneficial foods replace the avoid ones and the body clears toxins from past diet...

[size=14]Myself (A) and my partner (B) are new to the BTD and finding it very interesting but hard to find stuff we both can eat. Also my partner (B) is a long time vegetarian and although unhealty (diabeties, overweight, high blood pressure and depression) will not entertain the idea of eating meat or poultry. He does eat fish. Any helpful suggestions to help him change his mind or maybe he should be on some supplements? ??)[color=blue][/color]
This is very useful and encouraging - thank you. Another problem is that he is very sensitive to Dairy and has avoided it in the past because it produces very heavy mucus. Is this likely to change if he eats more for his type?
