Like the book says....Welcome, teachers!

I guess the number of changes from what we were eating to what the new guidelines say depends on which things were 'big' in our daily diets.  I am still absorbing the changes, but for me the big ones to lose are spinach, collard greens, beet greens, cauliflower, celery, asparagus, portabellos...and that is just the live foods category !  Also surprised that broccoli is now neutral.  A lot of my 'go to' bennies are going to have to change!

From other categories, rye flour, white wine (ok I still might have to have that once in a while...), white rice, basmati rice...well, that is all that pop to my mind right now.  Oh, macadamia nuts!

Very excited that so many more fruits are superfoods, and some new veggies like bok choy, beets, squash.  Garlic is now neutral too which feels strange .  Also some new grains are superfoods.

And, thank heavens, red wine is still at least neutral!!!

and have you seen all the new cheese choices????  Unfortunately I am allergic to cow dairy, but maybe with these changes that sensitivity will start to go away...a girl can dream!

What are you going to miss and what are you excited about adding?

And, how well do you feel you fit the profile for teacher in the other aspects of the strength tester?  I don't fit too many, but the height/finger/blood type doesn't lie so I guess this is me!

and coconut oil is now a superfood!  Wow, that is unexpected.  But it does mean that I can now eat this raw food fudge that a local lady makes...she has a carob version now so I will also get the superfood carob in there too!    Must recheck the fruit and nut list that is in there though...may have to start making my own.

This is fun, it is almost like starting over except from a really good place.  I have been very compliant on the btd for over a year, so I feel like I can have a black dot here and there and it won't do me any harm.  Not that I would start buying and eating them at home, but if I am out and there is an olive tray....I am having a green olive!!!

If 'black dots' (and avoids) have been a part of your diet on the BTD you may want to forego them for a few months.

ok Lloyd...I'll avoid the black dots that were ok previously.   But I have not had an olive in 14 mos!   Even so, being the A that I am, I will probably try to steer clear of all the black dots for a while...if not forever.  

In some cases I am not sure I am brave enough to eat a black dot...like with peppers and tomatoes.  They used to be things I ate all the time pre-BTD, and cutting them cold turkey was the only way.  I think in my psyche they still scream AVOID to me.  Still, nice to know that if I ate a bite of one accidentally as an ingredient in something, I would not self combust on the spot.

Cabbage...there is another surprise!  Superfood now, from avoid.  Who'd've thunk?

I hope more teachers come along soon! I am lonely!  !

I haven't done the whole test yet but it seems that I'm a teacher also.
I like the food changes.  But this time instead of giving away my avoid foods, like rye flour and crackers, black eye peas, I'll just finish eating them.

Yes, ligliaC, I think I will do the same with some of my foods.  Those that are ok for my hubby I will let him eat.  Those that were not my favourites to begin with I will toss.  But some things I may have to have a ceremonial last meal with .

More Teachers will come along as everyone figures out their Genotypes.  Some of the changes will be welcomed and exciting and some will be scary if we have been feeling safe with a meal plan that has rearranged itself.

One note on the coconut oil;  The oil that Dr. D is recommending  is Extra Virgin, and not the commercial oil.

My son is a Teacher.  He is at the Pakistan Food Store purchasing Goat as we speak.  I'm encouraging him to join the boards and especially, this thread.

Update--he just called from the fish store--loading up on cod, perch, and escargot.  

I'm a proud Mom!

Myra, give us an update once he tries the goat.  I've never eaten it...not sure I want to ! Thankfully, the red meat isn't necessary for us...not sure I could ever choke down mutton either.

Now emu and ostrich on the other hand, I can get behind that!

I think if you put the goat in a legume dish (think Indian) you might enjoy it.

Hi, I am Myrabee's son, John. I went to Deshi Curry our Local Indian Resturaunt for dinner. I had a great goat curry, and am feeling a lot better already. The goat was very tender, very good. The only gripe I had about it was the bones. But at $3.50 lb it wasn't bad at all. There are local Pakistani -Hallal markets here in Wichita, but sometimes they just have the goat wrapped in saran wrap. This looks very good and it is from Australia. I haven't cooked it yet but the lady at the store said to broil it first, make your sauce - curry, and pour it over in a baking dish and bake at like 350 for 15-20 min. It may be good to put in a crock pot, but I don't know. And for all your teachers out there, we might just be descended from the troll that lived under the bridge, in the three billy goats gruff, think about what a Troll looks like and it matches the genotype, coincidence? Hmmm. baaaah!

welcome, John!  Thanks for the goat info.  I will take it under advisement...  I love curried just about anything, so I am sure I would like that.  Goat is good for my gatherer hubby, so we may just give it a whirl sometime.  

I've eaten ostrich and emu before, and liked them a lot, so must try and find some of that around here.

I don't fit most of the teacher physical stuff...I am tall, gynic, almond jaw with an elongated head, no extra cusp.  Not sure about the tendon thing, but if they show they are not obvious.  So I guess I must be a troll mutant or something .

I thought I was a warrior but got the measurements mixed up and am glad I am a teacher. A lot of me matches the warrior except Im pretty short at 5'1 so Im willing to go with the teacher because I was totally devistated when I found out I would have to go back to being really vegetarian since I had had such leeway with the nonnie diet. Good bye bananas and lots of other foods but I do love cabbage.

Thought I'd swing by and let you know I was present in case anyone decides to take an attendance of the teachers.  

In my opinion, the best Teacher news so far: Guacamole is back in my life (avocados)! No more soy, soy, soy, soy. Did I mention soy? It's still there, but it does not seem to be as pervasive. Pecans got upgraded to Beneficial!

The worst so far: no more chocolate, no more sour cream, no more rye, and no more cream cheese - but, I got my brie back - in all it's creamy tastiness.

Anybody else tall????  and gynic?  and almond jawed?  with an elongated head and no extra cusps?  Perhaps I am the mutant teacher  .  

I am stoked that some nuts are now diamond superfoods...almonds, pecans...mmmmm.  And peanuts are still good , as are walnuts.  And sadly macadamias are toxic...but at least black dots!

And we sure do get lots of eggs...and chicken eggs are diamonds too!  I like that.

I am short, Gynic, Almond Jawed, with medium head and no extra cusps and shovel shaped teeth. With one Gatherer, two nomads, and me a teacher it seems very difficult to get one veggie dish for all of us unless its zuchinni or swiss chard which I am going out to pick right now for dinner. Will I just have to cook extra dishes for my mom the gatherer whose diet is almost opposite every one else in the veggie department?

That's a tricky one Jamie.  I don't envy you having to juggle all of them if you are the one stuck with all the cooking.  We are a teacher and a gatherer in this house...but being an A and an O, and having different tastes before that, we often do our own things and just eat at the same time .  You may have to recruit some help, or get everyone to look after their own veggies.

Good to know some of your physical things don't fit too...I guess those other things are not super important, just 'trends' within a genotype.

Another teacher here. Feels weird. I am still trying to get my mind around why former bennies are now avoids. I am going to miss my scrambled eggs with spinach. I will have to try substituting swiss chard I guess.

No more chocolate!   I am in mourning.  

I was so happy to have banana's again once I found out I was a nonnie, and now...pftht! they are gone again. Banana's were the ultimate fast food!

I love turkey, so I am glad it is a super food! The GT calculators were kind of fun to do. It was a really snowy day here, so my daughter did my measurements for me, and we laughed and laughed. The waist to hip ratio numbers were kind of depressing though. My daughter and I both had numbers that rated high, and she is for sure not heavy, and I am a size 8 with a little "jiggle" of post baby fat. Ok, so my "baby" is 16, shush! My son rated average, and he is a high school athlete, with "six pack" abs!

The finger print and 'handedness" info was interesting. Both of our kids are left handed, and I don't think they were stressed in the womb. People used to comment that I was the happiest pregnant woman they had ever met. Do you think that fertility drugs before conception could be the left handed stressor? Also, I am on antibiotics for my abcessed tooth, and I had a lot of white lines in my finger prints. Do you think the antibiotics contributed to the lines?

I am glad the book was released in winter, I will have a bit more time to study it and implement the 'teacher' stratagies. I'm looking forward to meeting more teachers.

I am with you on the chocolate, dawgmama.  I don't eat a lot of it, but once in a while there is just no substitute.  Oh well, I will find something else I am sure.  We teachers are successful adapters **.  I could not have bananas before as a sec, and I don't really like them much anyway.  The spinach though...that is a tough one for me too.  Collard greens too.  LOVE chard, so that is a relief that it is still 'in'.  Enjoy kale too.  And we get bok choy for another diamond green.   Oh and mustard greens...love those too.  Can't always get them here, but when we can they are wonderful.

If it makes you feel better, my waist hip ratio rated as high too, and I am not overweight (not that I could not stand to lose a lb or 5 ) and I am well proportioned.    

I think it is funny that the word "lanky" is used in relation to teachers, since the word means tall and thin...and yet it says that teachers are mostly moderate to short stature.  I am 5'10", definitely the 'tall' part of lanky.  I would not call myself thin though...not overweight but not skinny. Perhaps a few months on the GTD will change that!

I am quite excited about trying this, I am hoping it will clean up and fine tune things so that my body functions even better.

Ohhhh, good thinking, Vicki.  I used to love a bit of chicken on top of a romaine salad with avocado.  I will try the turkey avocado combo for sure!  

In my book, avocado goes with everything.   Makes everything taste so rich and good...and makes it easier to swallow! *lol*

Good to know I am not the only tall teacher .  

I am still marvelling at some of the changes from the Asec diet.  
Brussel sprouts are a diamond SF???     *lol*  

Looking forward to trying teff...never had it before.  Sounds interesting!
