The Blood Type Diet Archives Volume 11

In Response To: Re: Busy People -- How do you Plan? (Sonia (O+))
I too tend to "live in my head" (INTJ). As several others have suggested, leftovers are a great way to save time. However, I occasionally find myself running out of food in the middle of the week--very annoying! I exercise regulary and tend to be a bit too thin, so sufficient calories are important for me. While the following approach may not work for everyone, it seems to help me plan my weekly shopping.
I'm a type O Caucasian. I took the maximum recommended servings in ER4YT, along with a nutrition guide, and added up the number of weekly calories for "average" foods in each category. The "average" is of foods I would likely eat, so it will vary somewhat for each person. Also, I left out a few categories that I do not eat much of (eg, pasta). The average number of daily calories turned out to be 2276 cal. Now from past experience, I know that I need 2100-2200 cal/d to maintain a stable body weight so 2276 cal is close to my daily requirements.
Following is the list I compiled for a week of food. Again, it is talored for me, but it might serve as a useful starting point.
36 oz lean red meat 2210 cal
Total 15935 cal
