i started reading about PB last june julyish? and actually started following it in about august. i mainly started pb because of stomach issues as i have mentioned before, never had weight issues--5'3 120 most weight around thighs butt---started eaing LOTS of meat, nuts and veggies and really tried to stay away from fruits and starches. I found myself overeatting meat and feeling really full but not satisfied. its been nine months and although my reflux is gone i now have other issues just as bad or maybe worse. i have discomfort on my right side which i beleve to be the gallbladder (still have to get that checked) i also have lower right side pain, i have gained a few pounds--only two or three, but kinda noticeable around my hips and generally i just dont feel too well. So, i found metabolic typing and figured i was a mixed metabolic type. Because both my parents are from the Dominican Republic it makes for me to be this and actually feel optimal. Dont get me wrong i still agree with the primal foods---no grains, sugar, and for me dairy and nuts--but i find that i feel better when i have a very "balanced" meal that includes a starchy carbohydrate, protein and fat. In fact, i really love organ meats, ALL kinds---still havent tried brains though-- and prefer that and dark meat to lean meats. I've been adding my carbs back and lower the protein and fat, in comparison to what i've been eating for the past nine months and hope this will help with the issues i continue to unfortunately have :/...what do you guys think about this approach?
No announcement yet.
PB mixed with metabolic typing may be optimal
