Blood Type Diet

Blood Type Diet: Has any blood type A people lost weight and regained health with this diet? I would love to hear.

To Mary of Saskatchewan: I know nothing of blood type diets for weight loss, but the secret of losing weight is to buy a juicer and a liquidiser and to eat as much as possible of your food RAW. I bought my first juicer about 40 years ago, and took to drinking two or three glasses of vegetable juice a day (carrot, celery, cucumber etc: the softer vegetables are better liquidised). The weight simply fell off - which I wasn't even expecting - and has stayed off. I could almost say you don't have to make ANY other alterations to your diet - I mean there's no need to cut out your favourite treats entirely, though it would be wise to cut DOWN on them - and don't let yourself get hungry. Avocados, bananas, etc are fine: rawness is all.

For non-salad-lovers like me juicing and liquidising have been perfect, since one can get all the good stuff down in just a few gulps.

I'm on dialysis and I can't pee on my own. Will this tea help me?

I stopped eating meat, and started eating cabbage everyday, yes gas is part of what is expected, but my bowel movement is now regulated, my system is cleansed, stool is no longer dark and there is no unbearable smell. my weight is going down. And most of all I feel better physically. I juice 8 oz twice a day. And eat 1/4 pound per day. Basil and Fennel and black pepper for flavor.

Cayenne pepper is awesome! My husband used it to reduce his weight. 1 tspn cayenne pepper in a 1/2 cup of hot water, 3 times a day. It speeds up the metabolism.

a fatty liver causes you to have a very slow meotabolism, by taking kelp will speed up your meotabolism and get the weight off. Cayenne pepper 4 pill equals a teaspoon which will detox your liver and also helps a lot to speed up your meotabolism a lot. I take 2000mg kelp and 4 cayenne pepper pills 4 times a day...I tried many diffrent remedies the kelp and cayenne pepper is the only thing that helped me get my metabolism moving again. Every one needs to judge for themselves on how to take.

Check Testosterone Levels  

Posted by Mikke (Galicia, Spain ) on 09/15/2010

Before you try any remedy for weight loss... You should check your Testosterone levels... If they are low its almost impossible to lose weight... And also if you have a fatty liver.. Its very hard to lose weight!! ..

Ps. Take two cinnamon capsules every time you have a meal to control your glucose!

Mikke,

I've been trying to loose weight with apple cider vinegar with no success. Though, your suggestions made me think. How to increase our testosterone levels or help with a fat liver? Thanks and regards

Do you have abnormal testosterone levels? If something is off - your whole endocrine will have issues. Check your Free T3 and Free T4 thyroid levels. The FT3 hormone is your main source of metobolism

Hi, just wondered if you could speak more about what to do for low testosterone levels, and low hormone levels in general? I have low EVERYTHING right now (after two children, breastfeeding, etc. ), and no trace of cortisol at all! I was put on a low level of cortisol, and am working on consistency with herbs to help my adrenals (which have been deficient for years and years... ), but any other advice or recommendations would be wonderful! My energy is so low, and I am chronically fatigued, struggle with candida, etc. Thanks!!

How do Chia Seeds keep you feeling full?

When the Chia Seed is exposed to water or other liquids it begins to hydrate. This means that the fibers on the outside of the seed (almost too small to see with the naked eye) begin to trap moisture and form it into a gel. Each seed forms its own big bead of gel, that is not easily removed. When you eat this seed/gel combination, your body treats it like a big piece of food... not the 0 calorie water that it really is! The seeds themselves are tiny and healthy, but it's their ability to absorb 9 TIMES their own weight in water that keeps you feeling full. This means you can use even 1 tsp of seeds to get rid of hunger whenever you want.

This also makes it a great value for you when 1 dry tablespoon of chia makes 9 tablespoons of hunger-fighting chia gel. It's as easy as scoop, pour and wait 10 minutes for the gel to form on its own. Water isn't the only answer, either. You can use your favorite juice drinks too, and chia will never cover up or dilute the flavor you love.

I am here to give a resounding NAY for cinnamon for weight loss. I had already lost 15 pounds by tracking my caloric intake with a free app on my phone. I thought adding cinnamon might help shed the last few pounds. Well *pay attention* if you decide to take cinnamon. I added only a tiny pinch to my morning coffee each day. It was delicious! But after 6 weeks of this I was so constipated that my abdomen was having sharp cramps through the day. That is when I learned that cinnamon is also used as an anti-diarrhea supplement. Results may vary, of course. My husband can take turmeric every day and still have regular bm's but my system is way more sensitive apparently because both cinnamon and turmeric stop me up.

Effects: According to a study published by "The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, " cinnamon has been linked to weight loss because the spice stimulates, or increases, the metabolism of glucose. Glucose, or blood sugar, is a main source of energy and affects how hungry or energetic you feel.

Benefits: A benefit of cinnamon is its ability to delay food from progressing through the digestive system. Food is delayed in the stomach and, as a result, leaves you feeling full for a longer period of time. This results in a reduction of hunger and causes you to eat less. In addition to satiation, the active compound in cinnamon is methyl hydroxy chalcone polymer (MHCP) and works to increase glucose metabolism, according to the USDA. Your blood sugar level determines whether you burn fat or store it. Increasing your glucose metabolism through the use of cinnamon tablets burns excess glucose, which is stored as fat in your body. In short, feeling less hungry and burning excess glucose more effectively equates to eating less and losing weight.

I decided to the cinnamon and honey tea to my daily routine a week ago and I am already seeing effects!

My process: I put 1 tsp organic ceylon cinnamon into 8 oz of boiling water and let it seep for 30 minutes. Then I add 2 tsp organic raw honey. I drink half of the tea before bed and the other half in the morning 30 minutes before breakfast.

Results/effects so far: I have already been on a weight loss journey and adding the tea gave me an extra edge. In one week my measurements shifted down. I have read that this tea will make you lose inches before lbs.

I will definitely continue to use this on a daily basis, I'm sure I will continue to see other benefits!

I've been doing cold showers for 2 weeks, and my appetite significantly decreased, and i lost 4 pounds already. Amazing! ACV helps too, but it doesn't decrease appetite as cold showers do, at least for me.

Dried cornsilk (One tablespoon). One tea bag of green tea. 2 cups of bottled water. Bring water to a boil then remove from burner. Add teas cover with lid and allow to brew off of burner for 5 minutes. Strain with strainer into cup add honey to taste. This combination of tea relaxes, acts as a natural diuretic, and lowers the blood pressure.

Dried cornsilk tea can be found in health food stores and in the groc. stores that cater more to the Hispanic community. It is also called "Barbas de helote" meaning; beard of corn in Spanish. For an extra experience sprinkle into tea a pinch of fresh lavender r(purchased at health food stores or produce stores ) for aromatherapy while you sip your tea. The fragrance of lavender relaxes and soothes. Drink a cup in the morning or whenever you feel nervous.

I was watching on Oregon Public Broadcasting not too long ago a show by Michael Mosley the BBC. my spouse talked me into watching it with him. It was VERY INTERESTING.

There was one guy that just ate vegan, huge bowl but tossed the apple, ate the peel. Stuff like that. His blood and numbers were WAY healty and weight was low. He also was on a minimalist diet where you eat less calories to maintain your weight and run a lean machine/body

Then there was another diet that you would eat normal, like you wanted to eat and the next day only eat one meal mid day whatever you wanted to eat.. But one meal. This resulted in weight loss too but the blood and numbers weren't as good as the first guy daily undereating for his weight.

I tend to be like the number two scenario.... I overeat maybe one day and then the next don't feel much like eating , back and forth, my weight stays the same mostly. I have good numbers, but if they were going bad I might try the first diet of eating less and health food only to get my ship back in order....

Spouse says show is not on the internet like most opb shows.

It is true that fast foods are bad for health and the most dreadful effects of them is that they slow down the work of your immune system. I used to eat a lot and gained some 30lbs of weight and suffered of many diseases due to improper immune system. My wife advised me eat natural food and workout in the gym. I am perfectly alright now. Anyways your article is quite good and justifies all the points that you have discussed. Thanks for such a detailed explanation!
