Very good point about thrifty genes and aging poorly. I believe that is the primary cause for my middle age woe.

Though in another forum that I was reading a few days ago, a young man from Montana was saying something similar (I think, there was a slightly confusing tone that I didn't quite undertand), but was sure that thrifty genes are soley to blame for this condition, (inferring that resetting them through dietary choices and the Ayurevedic herbs in the catalyst and synergist supplements would be resposible for the improvement, not healing the gut).

I think it's both reasons. My gut was nearly ruined, and introducing probiotics saw an immediate effect that inmproved as time went on. Now, my gut's bloating reaction seems a clear protest to foods, within minutes of ingestion,  that are not acceptable. Plus, I introduced the catalyst and synergist herbs only 6 months ago. They've stabilized my metabolism greatly, but I give a lot of credit to the gut-healing that occured in the year prior. An immune system/inflammation connection? Anyone know?

Always curious about how things work,  but really, I'm just so happy to feel well!. And feel so lucky to have found this path, with such good people sharing it.

Thank you for the recommendations, I'll be looking into them.

Considering how much better I'm feeling in general these days (inflammation and weight control)  with more compliance towards my warrior diet, I wonder if extra supplementation is needed.

The activator and catalyst supps have worked well, and my concern is that introducing more telomer enhancers might throw important balances off. A concern especially for a cancer survivor like myself, who needs to strike a deal between the body's job of building and maintaining healthy cells while at the same time allowing them to expire at the proper time, preventing replication in a mutated state. Antioxidant intake is another area where I've heard this balance could be crucial, and that maunufacturers compete with one another by claiming higher concentrations. Not necessarily a good thing.  This may explain the relatively low levels of resveratrol in the activator supp.

I'd be interested in hearing more about this. Anyone?

These are difficult concepts for me to grasp, but I think Dr. D does, and might also explain why my BTD recommended certain supplements, while my SWAMI doesn't --it's more personalized and takes into consideration such factors as medical history.

I just wanted to throw my 2 cents in about potatoes.  I started eating them more last year and I swear they are good for me.  It helped me gain weight and feel satisfied when eating.  I don't feel like they have the "joint inflammation" property on me like some complain about.  I don't notice any difference.  In fact, my joints hurt less now than they did last year before eating them much.  And I eat them quite a bit now.  I have a challenge keeping weight on though.

hello, But you never feel bloated?  

Ciao!no quasi mai..le uniche volte che mi sento gonfio è quando cambio alimenti o mangio qualche alimento che non và per me

Dr. D'Adamo has stated that AB's shouldn't skip meals due to stress from not eating.

That's truth for me..for me is better eating few food but quite often..

Coffee is an avoid for AB.  I drink green tea instead.  
Have you checked out my thread for AB's yet, that I mentioned previously? Lots of good info.

I agree with you on feeling good after eating potatoes.  They seem to agree with me too.

Wow!!!  This is great!  I have been looking for this AB blog.  I have been very physical throughout my life and still am.  A couple of years I began having problems here and there (eyesight and others).  Initially following the book without strength testing, it gave me the same score for nomad and explorer.  For some reason, I did not conduct the strength test and began following the explorer diet.  I saw many changes in strength and stamina.  Eventually, I did the strength test and I became faster and stronger.  Then I conducted the swami, and realized that I am a nonnie, and am still adjusting to the mostly no grain and wheat diet.
I have realized that unless I have 10 or more servings of veggies per day, my BP will be high.  I have switched to eating more turkey, lamb and goat (most accessible meats and poultry for me).

"My Blood type AB Food, Beverage & Supplement Lists Book" says that Potato, red & white are Neutrals for type AB. So it doesn't agree with everybody, the white potato's?
