Accidental Chef, I am absolutely blown away that you have adopted the GTD. To move from ovo-vegetarian to using animal protein is a big move and obviously required a huge leap of faith. I hope it is not long before you notice some benefits.

Your increase in weight could well be due to eating good protein (protein for your type). Perhaps your body is getting toned. I would recommend measuring yourself (waist, hips, thighs, chest, etc) If these measurements aren't increasing then you are not putting on fat but gaining muscle.

As for the nether regions, I've never had a problem. Perhaps your body is adjusting to the new foods and needs time. I don't really know.

Yes, I tend to jump right into things instead of doing things gradually. Meat & fish dont interest me culinarily (if there's such a word), and I eat the stuff like medicine. Everything is measured and clinical. Anyhthing vegetarian, now that's another thing...

My clothes have become baggy so that must be a sign. I think if I can get my elimination going like it used to be twice a day, then I'd be most happy.

I stumbled into another thread where people were talking about Chia seed and how that helped. May be I need more bulking agents like good carbs from good grains. Hunters have no diamond grains..so I'm cautious.

Don't be afraid to use the superfood grains, just be aware of the suggested portions/servings. It's all good.

I've noticed that fruit 1/2 hour before breakfast and lunch or dinner really helps to keep me regular.
Chia seed really is great for perfect stool form.  The combination of fruit before meals and chia seed with meals is a perfect solution for me.

Hi there, I just wanted to check in and see how everyone is doing!

I also made some good recipes to share. I would love to hear more about what you all are cooking these days!

Last night, I made crepes with vege-herb filling. I used the crepe recipe in CRFYT, but instead of spelt, i used 1/2 whole wheat spelt and 1/2 rice flour and some herbs in the crepe. for the filling- I sauteed up some asparagus, green pepper and peas in garlic herbs olive oil sauce. Sprinkle parmesan cheese in crepe before stuffing, spoon in filling, Rolled them up, sprinkle top w/ more parmesan.. bake 350^ for 10 mins. YUM-O! I will DEF be making those again.

I made saffron rice tonight, w/ great salmon the IL's bought hubby and I (frozen from Horizon foods), it is the best salmon i have ever had! soo good, simply broiled.

I also made my very first souffle! Gluten free, low sugar! and it didnt fall - my sister (chef) would be so proud. I used a simple recipe i found online, for chocolate souffle, and sub. 1/2 rice flour and 1/2 AP flour (it was only 1 T. for 6 servings). And, a tinge of Turbindino sugar, stevia and agave nectar for sweetness. Cooked slightly underdone, So good!

Im slowly getting back on track. I also have been interested in the book: The 3:00 Secret. I lost a lot of weight for my wedding doing something similar, so if i can do this, and the GTD, i should be in good shape.

all sounds real good!
have you checked the recipe central here?
http://www.dadamo.com/typebase4/recipes.htm
you can add any recipe you want and simply post the title to the recipe you ve added, for the editing team to take care of it.

are you following the O BT guidelines or the GT hunter, is that what you turned out to be?
you can add that info in your signature if you like.

Ok my right index finger and ring fingers are the same length, so that means I'm a gatherer. If my ring finger were two millemeters longer I would be a hunter. I test really strong as a hunter and not so strong as a gatherer on all other tests. Could I be a hunter with a short ring finger? lol

You could be a Gatherer who has a number of Hunter-type issues, which would be better addressed with the GT2 diet than the GT1 diet.

Where is everyone? OK- i will admit having a hard time sticking w/ things. I had initially done really well, but now am going up and down and on/off as I do with so many WOE. I just have to commit myself and steer way clear of sugar. Low carbing always worked for me, i might give it a shot, but the GTD way, to see if i can kick off some better loss. Does anyone on here have any weight loss tips? I know the diamond foods are good for weight loss, maybe i can just stick to eating those for now. Thats what I did in the beginning and it came off. I hate having to count anything so that is at least easier!! My main thing is i get bored, and like to cook, so I have been using gluten free cookbooks, which call for Tapioca flour, and other things. I have no clue if we can have tapioca flour?! Anyhow, gotta run, and just wanted to check in w/ everyone and exchange some tips Unfortunately, I am also impressionable and people have been telling me that i am crazy to be on this WOE (rolleyes). I have heard some really nasty things. I think i have to keep it to myself, not share w/ anyone

Hi!  I'm still here---I just don't have tons of time to post.  I'm definitely following the Hunter Diet, and my weight almost effortlessly diminishes.  Thanks for bumping up this thread!

We hunters... out busy hunting new recipes and other stuff!  I've got a couple good ones to post... but I've been to busy as well!  sigh.

feeling really good on the diet however.  no more binging going on.  Just when I work out too much my fibromyalgia flares and it puts me under.  

sigh.  a strange paradox for a Hunter.

I read the whole thread and I have to say Thank you for all the information in this thread I just certified myself as a hunter, just got my GTD book.

I knew I was a hunter, but it was great to be confirmed as a hunter   I am still reading the book, so right now, I am on BTD weaning to a GTD. I am trying to convert my DH to BTD and GTD.. I will need to measure him, he is either a Hunter or a Gatherer.

Does anyone here bother counting cals and how compliant are you with your level of sucess (measured in overall health and weight)?

I made a yummy bananna bread with rice flour, but also Tapioca flour- does anyone know if this is neutral? I know that some types are allowed it, but it doesnt say for us. I do know it is root of the cassava plant, which is toxic for us. ??

Hi everyone,
I am a Hunter (since Jan. 4th) and loving it!  I am new to this message board and I look forward to learning all I can from you.  The best place for me to start is to read this entire thread which I am sure has a wealth of info in it. So I will contribute as I catch up on some of the threads here so if you see me online, but not contributing much, it is because I am learning/reading past threads.  

I am really enjoying the Nonnie Clubhouse also - I suspect I am one, but only sent my test in yesterday.

Hi Tea Rose... happy to have you out in the forest with us Hunting away!

There is also a great thread Hunter Recipes.  If you go to search and put in Hunter, you'll find all kinds of other info... and try searching for the word 'the last 30 days' and then 'older than 30 days.'

And just some info... I've found on the GTD plan, for Hunters, it does not seem to matter if you are a secretor or not... at least at this stage of the info. in the book.  Somebody correct me if I'm wrong on this.

Hi funkymuse,
I do seem to remember that while on GTD the secretor status isn't an issue as far as the food goes as when on the BTD. But I find it just so interesting though...especially after reading what some of the non-secretors have to say...I just identify with them so much as far as quirks, etc.  I said somewhere else that I am so happy to find that there are other people that can hear people chewing soft foods, because it puts my nerves on "high alert" .  My husband would have me believe I am the only person on earth who is like this!

So I think my interest isn't so much - how I can modify my diet, because the Hunter diet, fits me to a T (except I can't seem to warm up to Lima Beans yet!) - my interest in finding out is more the bahavioral and health related issues.  Maybe I will know next week!

I also like fresh escarole;  Does anybody know any other way to eat it?  I like the "spicy" taste to it.  


MyraBee,
I just finished reading this thread and saw that you asked for ways to use escarole.  My favorite way to use escarole is "Beans and Greens".  This was a family recipe that just fits into the Hunter diet - I love that!  

In a large skillet, I heat EV Olive oil and add a couple of chopped garlic cloves and let it cook about a minute.  I add some red pepper flakes to the oil for a bit of heat at this point. I have a huge bunch of escarole leaves, cleaned and chopped and add them into the skillet and use tongs to turn the escarole until wilted down.    Then add in some great northern white beans and some chicken or turkey broth. The amount of broth you add depends on how you want to eat it. I like it as a soup, so add more broth.  You can easily adjust amounts of bean and escarole according to your taste.

I make a Gatherer version for my husband and just do half spinach and half escarole for him and use only a bit of turkey broth as he likes it as side dish with the rest of his meal.

Hunters who want to be using more diamond foods can use fava beans instead of the great northerns.

I sometimes even just cook up the escarole in the EV olive oil with the garlic alone! Plan on using alot of escarole because it wilts way down.

Either way you do it, serve it with a fresh drizzle of EV Olive oil and some good quality salt.

Tea Rose

Hey Hunters... just created a great drink!

Cold Brewed Green Tea and Pineapple Juice!!! Yah!


I am struggling to drink Green tea as it makes me feel nauseas - usually I have tablets. I will have to try it with pineapple juice.

I love you guys and how passionate you all are. Its like coming home.

I am not organised yet or got my fridge or cupboards in order but for brekkie I had some cranberries, dark chocolate and dates and Im glad Im not craving - just thirsty and usually coffee is what I want but Im making an effort to stop drinking it from now on.
Wish me luck.
Does green tea make anyone else feel nauseas?
I also have been taking fenugreek pills which I heard about for weightloss. you can find some great stuff on http://www.earthclinic.com but it depends on what you're looking for.
Hope you are all having a great day and please tell me more of what is happening in your diets and lives, thanks
Love Marie

For lunch I had a can of artichokes drizzled with tahini. There was a little bitterness but it was really nice and satisfying. Theres a lot of variations we could think of. maybe add parmesan, ghee, lemon & a spice or two.

Finding lunch on my lunchbreak is the hardest. I ended up gettin a lunchbox, so I could try the tahini with artichokes.
I also got some canned asparagus for tomorrow and some carob licorice,cranberries & crushed walnuts for snacks + some grapeseed oil to try on my skin tonight as recommended by italybound.

I dont feel as destructive or paranoid about food anymore - its more like an adventure and a treat and something to look forward too and not avoid.

Tonight Im thinking about having duck but not sure what with yet.......
