Just figured out that I am a Hunter too.  It will take some adjustment. As for Nutritional yeast, I put mine into my morning smoothie along with rice protein and egg white protein, pineapple juice, banana and blueberries. At least I think that is all all right still. (other than combining protein and carbohydrate) It really helps me get through until lunch.
I am glad to have grapefruit again.  I think it has always helped me with weight loss.

Welcome RHTeacher! Glad to have you with us--I think Grapefruit is really helping me lose weight, too.  I'm still not brave enough to try the n. yeast, yet.  Can anyone suggest a brand thats good and compliant?

You don't eat nutritional yeast by itself.  I mix a tablespoon with my breakfast every morning.  It adds a pleasant taste to nuts and fruit.  I've also sprinkled it on salads and blended it in smoothies.  

It's not something you eat by itself with a spoon!!!  Think of it more as a condiment.  

It's loaded with B vitamins and protein.

really, the taste of nutritional yeast goes best with grains. It can be liberally sprinkled on hot rice, quinoa, millet etc. along with evoo, and cayenne, a bit of garlic! Yum. Not on anything sweet, fruity, etc. Not!

Hi fellow hunters! I have to say, this WOE has changed my life! Really I am losing weight every day, even though it is little tiny bits at a time, it is better then before, when i was up, down, up, down. I am wondering how many of you guys are really strict about not eating any of the toxic foods? I have to admit i still have some stuff in the fridge, and now that DH is an Explorer, I am worried about cooking for the 2 of us.

Last night i tried Quinoa for the first time!! It was good! I also made chicken w/ a Tarragon sauce, also very good. I put some of the sauce on the Quinoa. Hubby liked it too, he is very picky.

Is there a place where I can find recipes and exchange here?

So glad you are doing so well on the Hunter diet.  I, too, have been consistently losing weight.  I absolutely do not eat any avoid foods, if I can possibly help it.  Not going out to eat helps the most with that!

There are recipes here, and a Cook Right Board, perhaps they will help--also if you have any particular questions just ask! Some of us are pretty good in the kitchen...others of us are pretty good at asking for help!

That sounds good!  How are you doing with no meat at breakfast?


I have leftover meat for breakfast....if I have the millet in the morning I will usually have a protein drink first thing in the morning with fresh pineapple juice and banana mixed in...the banana takes away the little gritty texture of the protein O powder

hunters have to be careful not to stress out the adrenal glands.

I was getting sick of eating dried figs and prunes.Cranberries and grapefruit are a welcomed change.

Mike, can you talk more about the adrenal / hunter diet connection.

My chiropractor says it's the stress on my adrenals that is causing some of my lower back problems. On the BTD, I was a dried fig and prune fiend. I could never get enough of them.
You seem to suggest there is a connection?

we're adrenalin driven and if we don't tame this drive through proper exercise , diet and stress reduction, "the hunter's pituitary adrenal glands go into overdrive...watch out (partners of hunter's will know what I mean) and even a little stress becomes too much"

see page 117 in the GT book

this is why our slogan is 'shoot first , ask questions later'

This "adrenal connection" is all it takes to absolutely convince me that Dr. D and the GTD is spot on.  I am so adrenal driven, and receive such benefit from exercise as a stress reducer--as well as the Hunter diet--well, as I said, I don't need anymore proof than that!

Additionally, totally removing sugar/milk/wheat from my diet has really stabilized my overall sense of well-being.  I used to eat lots of dairy before BTD, and still ate quite a bit if ice cream even on BTD.  

However, since being on GTD, even a little bit of dairy and sugar makes me ill--I ate a very small amount of "rice pudding" at the Indian buffet the other day and it seemed to cancel out the benefits of my lamb curry and small portion of basmati.  And I do mean cancel out!!

My weight loss is really ramped up a couple of notches since I started GTD.  I'm encouraged!!

Mike,
are dried figs and prunes particularly bad for adrenals  and cranberries and grapefruit particularly good? or was this just a casual observation of your own preferences?

I have not seen fresh cranberries in Australia. We have things called "craisins", basically dried cranberries. Would these be any good?

I still can't get my head around the portions in the GTD book. I never worried about portion size on the BTD and still had remarkable improvements in health so I might do the same with GTD

I'm getting acid indigestion from Grapefruit Juice.  Any ideas about this since this is a superfood for Hunters?

Possibly my gut and digestive track is so messed up from years of bad eating that I can't take this for awhile.

I would always have that issue with Seltzer as well.. I would have to open the can to let the bubbles out and then drink it and I still burped and got some tummy upset.

Any clues?

What for the "sugars" in the "craisins." Cranberries are very tart and need lots of sugar which makes them really expensive compared to other dried fruit so in order to make prices more competitive "cheap sugars" are always welcomed by the industry.

In any case, sugar is out for us Hunters.

Hi Everybody!

A couple of food comments...

The Grapefruit Juice I drink is Texsun Ruby Red in a can.  I, very surprisingly, have no difficulty digesting it--in fact it seems as if it aids digestion.  I know some folks will understandibly have difficulties with juice in a can and made from concentrate.  I understand those concerns.  However, for my budget this is what works best for me.  I do think the Ruby Red is the way to go!  And--as soon as I open the can, I immediately transfer the juice to a glass bottle.

Another menu note--I just had fried sweet potatoes/onions for part of my supper!!  Absolutely exquisite!  I used Ghee to saute them, covered them and let them steam for five minutes or so--and had Ambrosia on a plate!!

These are real sweet potatoes--Not Yams.  I bought them at the Korean grocery, and I'll definitely be buying more!

Isn't this the truth?!!  I have spent decades consuming massive amounts of that poison white powder, and I cannot tell you have thankful I am to finally understand how Toxic it is to me.

Whether fresh or in a can or frozen, red is clearly the way to go. Tastes better, doesn't upset the stomach, more lycopene.

If you have a juicer, one grapefruit produces quite a lot of juice.

Always check ingredients on fruit juices to see if there are ingredients such as guar gum.

Wow... I had purchased pink grapefruit and that was the worst culprit on my tummy!  

I only purchase pure organic stuff... no other ingredients ever if I can help it.

thanks all for the tip about Ruby Red!
