Well here we go for round 2. I have somehow maintained w/in 5lbs my cycle never came last month and all symptoms of arrival pending w/another no show this month. So I have decided whatever come when you are ready BUT I am ready to begin another round. Stress levels have remained high for obvious reasons with hubby having cancer, the surgery, the healing process and now awaiting chemo/rads treatments. Been making the best out of what life has dealt and keep moving forward it is all we can do:) I am guess stress is the delay in my cycle...I know I am not pregnant so we are good there.
During all of this we were told he needs to follow the blood type diet and that is when he quit having to rush back to the ER for gut pains since surgery and release from hospital. So I have been doing some research and I am going to go thru and see what is the good list of my blood type vs what is allowed on HCG and see if I can maximize my results this round. I will be beginning round 2 phase 1 tomorrow!! I am actually excited about it and can't wait. How funny is that?? I have learned that maybe it was the chicken and tomatoes that were my culprits NOT the beef!!! excited about that actually. I didn't totally put it together as when ever I had beef I had tomatoes and I blamed the beef after reading around and seeing others too were saying beef was an issue. Tomatoes were a mainstay and I am thinking where I still lost that was my struggle with ups and downs so often.
Blood Type Diet - Type B
The sturdy and alert Type Bs are usually able to resist many of the most severe diseases common to modern life, such as heart disease and cancer. In fact, a Type B who carefully follows the recommended diet can often bypass severe disease and live a long and healthy life. Type Bs are more prone to immune-system disorders such asmultiple sclerosis, lupus, and chronic fatigue syndrome.
The Type B Diet is balance and wholesome, including a wide variety of foods.
For Type Bs, the biggest factors in weight gain are corn, buckwheat, lentils, peanuts and sesame seeds. These foods have different lectin that affect the efficiency of the metabolic process, resulting in fatigue, fluid retention, and hypoglycemia. The gluten lectin in wheat germ and whole wheat products also adds to the problems cause by other metabolism-slowing foods.
It is important to leave off chicken for Type Bs. Chicken contains a Blood Type B agglutinating lectin in its muscle tissue, which attack the bloodstream and potentially lead to strokes and immune disorders.
Type Bs thrive on deep-ocean fish, but should avoid all shellfish. The shellfish contain lectins that are disruptive to the Type B system.
Type B is the only blood type that can fully enjoy a variety of dairy foods. Most nuts and seeds (especially peanuts, sesame seeds and sunflower seeds) are not advised for Type Bs., they contain lectins that interfere with Type B insulin production.
Wheat is not tolerated well by most Type Bs. They contain a lectin that reuce insulin efficiency and failure to stimulate fat "burning". Rye contains a lectin that settles in the vascular system, causing blood disorders and potentially strokes. Corn and buckwheat are major factors in Type B weight gain, they contribute to a sluggish metabolism, insulin irregularity, fluid retention, and fatigue.
Eliminate tomatoes completely from Type B diet. It has lectins that irritate the stomach lining. Fruits and vegetables are generally well tolerated and should be taken generously.
