In Response To: First Post - please help (lee (A))
When you say you gained 40 lbs on animal products, did that include fish? Just wondering, because fish like salmon can be very good for Type A's, and if you are carb sensitive, I would focus on fish, some peanuts and tofu, and a whole lot of highly beneficial vegetables and fruits, and go a little low on the grains, but it should be okay to eat the highly beneficial and neutral ones, as usually the allowable carbs are not the problem in Type A weight gain. Usually it is red meat and too much fat. Which carbs, specifically, have you been eating since starting the A diet? Ones like peanuts, tofu and the beans you are allowed and encouraged to eat will probably not produce weight gain. I'd be curious to know what you've been eating.
It is also possible that the 6 lbs is just your body going through some kind of adjustment/transition phase and that it will even out soon.
Good luck and welcome! Other Type A's can probably advise you better than I about the weight loss thing--but stick with ER--it's very good for your health and the weight thing will work out once you fine tune a bit!
