Welcome Hunters and all other GT Companions!  

I just had another thought about Grapefruit juice--I almost always sprinkle Himalayan Pink Sea Salt in my juice before I drink it.  It smooths out the taste, and the Sea Salt really seems to helps my body.

Now that sounds nice!  What is this Himalayan Pink Sea Salt?  Never heard of it...

I bought a transparent plastic ruler to use instead of the sharp metal one with numbers only on one side, remeasured my fingers, and now there's no doubt at all that I'm a Hunter.
The new Hunter foods I've tested have all been really good for me too. And I've gained a pound, which for me is hugely good news.

Welcome to our Tree Stand, CindyT!!  

Doesn't it feel great when you finally get settled into the right plan for you?!

Here is the link for my Sea Salt, Funky Muse.  It tastes wonderful, and I've never been a big fan of sodium.  realfoodtrading.com

Hi All I want to report some interesting "stuff".. Last week, i had the family over, so i ended up going off plan. I have basically been off since then, feeling awful. Really miserable. Today, i went right back on, and i feel truly amazing tonight. It is so funny! Unfortunately, my weight did a bounce too, as did my mood. I think this is all really really legit! Im just having a hard time dealing w/ my folks. They like to have us over a lot, and my D takes some real convincing. Like, i told him what I can and cant eat. So, he buys ham hocks and greens, b/c he remembered i like the mustard green (oi). When i declined dinner, he said- oh no, ill wait for you to have it. (oi again). So, i guess i need to give him a list. But, i hate to inundate people b/c of my WOE, do you know what i mean?

Anyhow, tonight i made the BEST Curry chicken dinner! I love how many yummy spices are beneficials.

Hey- are we allowed White rice?

What about Turbindino (sp?) sugar?

I had left over rice, and made a Rice pudding w/ black strap molasses and pineapple. It was really good. I think i found a good ice cream replacement! I know white rice is not soo good, so maybe ill try brown or half-n-half.

What about Ezekial bread and cereal? It says NOT to eat Essene, but no mention of Ezekial- does that make it neutral?  I seem to do well on it.

Thanks all!!

I'm not sure why you would want to eat white rice, but I doubt it would be considered good for us.  They take off the good part and leave just the unhealthy part.  Try brown rice instead.  Soak it for several hours or overnight then it cooks faster, and you can store it for a few days.

Ezekial bread has sprouted wheat in it which is listed as a black dot toxin.  I'm guessing this puts the bread in the same category.  I'm having trouble with this.  It will probably be the hardest thing for me to give up.

I love rice in general, weather white or brown rice! I like white b/c its so fluffy, cooks fast and my DH's favorite (he loves it w/ just salt - he has very bland taste, and is an explorer). I like brown rice too... but when i dont get to make dinner late, and all the brown i have takes a long time to cook. I will try the soaking overnight method to cook it faster, thanks for the tip!

Does anyone know where i can find a list of hunter foods? Is there anything like that online? I need to get my dad a list- but i told him this morning to just get a copy of the book.

He is a hunter (as in hunting, the sport) so i would think for him , his genotype is obvious, right? He is now trying to convince me to "hunt" since its in my nature.

Besides the book, there is http://www.genotypediet.com , which requires a membership. There is a way to get the first week free if you search the boards or look in the back of the book.

Thanks - i haven't joined the paying site, has anyone? What can you report about it?

I think i have converted a bunch of others to this WOE. Some friends came by and we had a night of measuring, it can be quite a funny experience, lol. They were pretty fascinated, and especially one friends fit the Teacher profile to a T.

Can anyone tell me about Goat cheese? I dont see it (Chèvre) listed so it is neutral? I absolutely love it, so i was wondering if i can have it (limited) occasionally.

Also, I bought some Rice spring roll wraps. They are very hard, i wonder what i can do w/ those? I was thinking some kind of lasagna?

Hope everyone is doing well! I am floating back down in my weight, and feeling good. I would say i am between 50-80% compliant on a given day.

I do mostly the message boards on the site. They are good & growing.
Goat cheese is feta cheese, as far as I know--or is it feta cheese is made from goat milk (which it is!). Maybe the chevre is something different, but I doubt it. Look for feta cheese & see if you can have it!

O-hunters, O-hunters wherefore art thee...Ah Hither thou art!  I've just about concluded my own hunter status based on intermediate level test charts and have really enjoyed reading the posts in this thread and I wanted to thank everyone for the dynamic input and corroboration and all the things that the forum has come to mean to me over the ..gosh it's been years now, I can even say that!Really thanks for the glide path is the way I'd like to put it.I read the book once through without trying the tests,had some quizzical moments as I looked over the food lists. I think one question may have been answered somewhere else but thought I'd post my own version for certainty: If rice is O.K. why is rice milk not? Is it the stealth ingredients? Or is there something wrong with liquified rice for hunters? I'm reluctantly going to rethink the spelt/rye restriction. The spinach thing is a shame. I was really shocked by the figs report. And apples, I mean apples of all things to get the black spot!Oh and oats too. What happened that made those loose neutral status?To consecrate my hunter devotion I've stopped having my too frequent ritual of denial coffee flavored half-n-half. no problems just a little sleepy for a few days. Not sure of the toxin lag time for that.I'll have to look over the prtions carefully to see if my breakast buffalo burger with onions and broccolli or I guess now kale is going to keep me huntering (I loved that phrase BTW!) with verve or not.

Well l'm having a hard time giving up all types of milk like liquids as well so I make homemade rice milk with only basmati rice and water.  I'm sure hoping that this is not a black dot avoid.

The commercial rice milks have lots of avoids in them.

As well, I've discovered DATES!!! Oh my gosh they are so fantastic.  I have to stop myself from eating the entire bag!

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?


try freshly squeezed...the bottled stuff does the same to me

The Ruby Red is really good!  I also put some Pink Sea Salt in it--and it's just wonderful that way.

Also wanted to bump this thread up for new Hunters hunting for help!

Yeah, 50/50 ruby red grapefruit and pineapple is a good combination, sometimes I add a spoonful of Harmonia Green too.

Re; grapefruit juice, ive been buying organic, pure, ruby red brand, and dilute it w/ water.  Speaking of juice, does anyone know why Grapes are an avoid/toxin, but Grape juice is ok?

If you were a BTDer, how much has your diet changed becoming a Hunter?

For breakfast, I used to eat 3 eggs per day plus a shake made of 6 prunes, 2 tbsp of ground flaxseed and pineapple juice.
I realise the portions for eggs are 7-9 per week so i've compromised and am down to 2 eggs per day. The shake is now made up of 1 banana, 2 tbsp of ground flaxseed, 2 tbsp of tahini and pineapple juice. There is almost the same amount of protein in the 2 tbsp of tahini as there is in an egg so that's ok.

My fruit during the day was apples and bananas; now I've cut out the apples.

I used to snack on figs and walnuts; now it's dates and pepitas.

I still eat beef for around 12 meals a week. I've never been satisfied with poultry but I did have turkey for 4 meals this week so maybe I'll come around eventually.
My vegetables have not changed much. I've cut down on carrots (I find that weird). I've swapped swiss chard for the spinach. I used to grow 6 different types of spinach in my garden and I'm sad to see them go. Sigh.

I can't stick to the beverage portions; just too restrictive. It's midday and I've already had pineapple juice in my shake and 3 cups of decaf green tea and that's almost it for my allowed portion.

As for supplements, I've added the recommended dosage of B5 and folic acid.

That's it. Other than these relatively minor changes, I'm pretty much on the O diet.

Yes, the Hunter diet is very close to the O diet in most respects. The changes are few and simple. As I had followed the O diet, my changes were primarily choice of breakfast greens, pears replacing plums and roasting a duck once a month. Everything else was even more minor as the neutrals I had been using became superfoods almost without exception. Lucky me!

This is an interesting question for me. My changes have been drastic. I was Ovo Vegetarian on the BTD and now have gone completely non-veg. No cooking of meat & fish at home though. I'm following the Hunter diet portions and recommendations and this is how I eat now:

Mon, Wed, Fri: Bfast: ~60gms(handful size) roasted lamb mixed with beneficial spices, onions & ginger+ 1 portion of sweet potato leaves+ a smallportion of wakame sauted in ghee + 2 small squares of flaxseed bread+ cocoa drink with ghee+ green tea. So that's 3 servings of red meat, going by the lower end of recommendations.

Tues,Thurs: Bfast: ~60gms roasted duck mixed as above+ all the of the above. That's 2 servings of poultry for the week.

Mon,Wed, Fri:Lunch:~50gms sardines+ broccoli, kale, with beneficial spices & onions and ginger+ green tea. That's 3 out of 4 servings of fish for the week. I try to get the remaining 1 portion on a Saturday.

Tues, Thurs:Lunch:~ 2eggs scrambled +all of the above veggies & green tea. Thats 4 + 5 eggs(from the flaxseed bread)9 eggs per week.

Dinner M-F: 2 small sqaures of flaxseed bread+ vegetable stew made with all beneficial root veggies, mustard greens & fava beans, spices, onions & ginger. Fava beans is about 1T cooked, per day.

Saturday: Free & easy with mainly beneficial and neutral foods, gravitating more towards vegetarian meals with rice. No black dots though.

Sunday: Positively vegetarian with beneficial & neutral foods for lunch, but dinner is a bit tricky with black dots in the form of carrots & spinach creeping in..not as a main meal but it's there as part of a dish.

Fruit intake: 1 Banana post workout, a portion of any of these Pear/Pineapple/Watermelon for mid morning, and 4 dates for tea time snack (cant's eat more, it's just too much!)

Beverages: Mainly 3L water with lime juice. Cup of green tea each for bfast, lunch and dinner. 1/2 cup grapefruit or grape or pineapple juice to post workout smoothy.

Flaxseed: 1T goes into the post workout smoothie, and the flaxseed bread.

Oil: 5T a day with a combination of ghee & Rice bran oil. Cant remember the portion recommendation. Is this too much..?

Nuts & seeds: Have completely gone off my favourite pumpkin seed & walnuts.

Exercise: Mon, Wed, Fri: 5km run in the mornings. Yoga.
          Tue, Thurs   : 3km run in the mornings+Weights.Yoga
          Saturday     :10km run in the mornings. Yoga.

Fri evenings & Saturdays lots of walking and heavy carrying for my weekly marketing & shopping. No driving involved.

Supplements: Finishing up B-1000 B complex. L Tyrosine(not part of the Hunter protocol but it helps), Rhodiola Rosea( great stuff). Amla Vit C. Was taking Coleus Forskohlin on the BTD but have stopped it now.

Sleep: 7hrs.

I dont know why my weight has shot up from 58kg to 64kg, but all my clothes have become baggy. Could the weight increase be coz of the 5 tablespoons/day of oil/ghee intake? I'm slightly above 5 feet. Another worrying thing is bowel movement. There is no "feeling of wanting to go". Not constipation but...no action. That worries me. And makes my midrif look really big.

Any thoughts..?

you may not be used to digesting meat....I had to use betaine hydrochloride to assist my digestion for many months...(had been vegetarian for yrs) but finally my natural O nature kicked in. I'm not saying it directly affects the bowels but that if things are not digesting they will sit there.

Thanks jayneeo! Betaine hydrochloride sounds like something out of a chemistry lab though ..kidding.

So good people anyone has any advice and suggestions for me..?
