My book hasn't arrived yet and I haven't visited the website either but according to my measurements, Don has said that I'm a Hunter. I thought I might have been an Explorer because I'm left-handed and Rh- but also I didn't visualise myself as a Hunter ... but what do I know!!!

Here are my measurements:

Total height: 171 cm
Torso height: 94 cm
Total leg length: 77 cm
Upper leg : 36 cm
Lower leg : 34 cm

Left index: 73 mm
Left ring : 75 mm
Right index: 70 mm
Right ring : 74 mm

Waist : 85 cm
Hips  : 96 cm

Following the thread, I'm a bit dismayed at the movement of some of the foods. For the majority of time I've been on the BTD, I've been a steak and salad kind of guy. And the base of all my salads is Kale & spinach, both of which I grow in my vege patch. I also use prunes as part of a shake I have for breakfast. I also have eaten a lot of figs. So, it's really sad to see them go.

For those who know, which leafy greens are super beneficial for Hunters? And what is the status of eggs?

Greens - dandelion, escarole, grape leaves, kale, mustard greens, and turnip greens.

Chicken and duck eggs are Superfoods.

Also chicory, which is on the bitter side but mixes in nicely.


Ron, I am pure mesomorph. When heavier I was unable to get my finger to touch thumb around the wrist. As a youth and currently as well as when at a reasonable weight it has been a 'barely touches with effort', even when I have been very thin.

We lost collard greens ... and after all the work that went into getting myself to eat them and searching for recipes.  They were my main green.  I have done turnip greens before a little, never had kale or escarole.  I've never even seen grape leaves and wonder if we have them in our small town.  We certainly don't sell dandelions, but I've got plenty in my yard!

Well....we didn't exactly lose them--there seems to be quite a bit of collards hiding out in my refrigerator!  

Seriously tho, I ate my first mustard greens yesterday and I absolutely LOVE them!  And I'm eating turnip greens as we speak. I think Lloyd's Tahini dressing will be great on fresh escarole--maybe with a little mustard powder and agave syrup added--kind of a honey mustard dressing.

We're gonna be all right!!

I can highly recommend kale, especially the variety called Tuscan kale or cavollo nero. It is very easy to grow and it's very vertical and has shallow roots so could grow easily in a pot and not take up much space. You can just pick leaves off from the outside as it grows.
It is the base of all my salads. It has almost a nutty taste which is odd for a green. Combine it with all your other beneficial greens, slop on your favourite dressing and you can't go wrong.

I'm a hunter, until proven otherwise.  

Cherries never seemed to agree with me, I felt stressed when I ate them.  The hunter diet explains that.

One thing I was surprised about was spirulina.  Wasn't that an avoid?  Now it's a superfood.

No book till mid next week. Fingers, toes and everything in 2's kept crossed ..

But from whatever that's been discussed so far, I was really sad to see carrot, spinach & plums go. Plums and prunes used to make my stomach rumble despite eating them with pumpkin seeds. Oh, but carrots & spinach, it's tragic.

I was told that "all dals" were now a black dot (can be added 3-6 months later). Oh-ho, that explains a lot of things I have been puzzling about. I mean, how did 7 generations of O's in my family survive daily servings of dal? And grains dont have such an evil label anymore. Soy & soy products made me feel bloated...and despite Tempeh being on the CVD good list I'll give it up coz I now know why! Ah...once the book is here I'll learn more, hopefully.

There seems to be less action on the Hunter thread than the others. Wonder why

I somehow expected Don & Lola to be Hunters. Life is full of surprises!

I expected to be a Hunter too and I strength test strong as one, but I am a Gatherer based on the advanced GT calculator.

Looks like the Gathers and Warriors should be the largest groups around here.

Hunters: Around 15%
Gatherers: Around 25%
Teachers: About 15%
Explorers: About 15%
Warriors: About 15-20%
Nomads: About 5-10%

Could it be because the Hunter diet is pretty close to the BTD O food lists?  After I got over a few shocks like spinach and cherry juice, I've pretty well settled back down into my old routine.

I will say I'm enjoying the heck out of my Grapefruit Juice!

Only trouble with that is.....it's 1:20 AM!!

All possible answers.

So all you lucky Hunter people with the book-how's it going? What major changes did you make? How's the exercise regime? And what about supplements?

About chocolate being an SB, it would apply to just cocoa as well right?

Myra steak at 1:20am !!!

well, i had to change Essene bread, spinach. But now i have a slew of "Carbohydrates" i've never tried nor heard of. i love new things so this excites me! also all these fruits... half i've never heard of. tried grapefruit for the first time yesterday... delicious! i was pleased to see rhodiola and pantothenic acid recomended for stress because i have those in my cabinet! I still think Intrinsa is my #1 supplement overall.

I think it's funny that Mana bread was our only beneficial but now it's an avoid, replaced with about half a dozen other superfoods! I find the phrase "out of left field" is a good description for how that made me feel but it was also a nice surprise.

im still learning. just figured out lettuce was an avoid..who would have thought that?   Romaine, tell me it's not so!

as far as exercise..i don't think i've ever excersised more than 30 minutes. will be interesting to try for 40!

I haven't gotten back into the habit of exercising yet.  I did notice that when I was exercising regularly that it was between 35-50 minutes at a time.  I felt really great when doing it.

I am really missing spinach, tomatoes, and carrots.  Those were staples in my salads!   I am trying to find new greens/veggies to replace them!

I'm still waiting for my book. You would think that Australia was the other side of the world  

I'm worried about the thread suggesting that we "lose" spinach, lettuce, carrots, tomatoes, plums, prunes, cherries. Yipes, that's a massive whack off my current diet.

I don't think anyone has mentioned what has happened to broccoli? Another daily food for me.

I hear other murmurs about some foods that can be returned after 3 months or 6 months on the diet. So are the foods mentioned above actually avoids? Or are they neutral? Or whatever the new terms for these are.

Broccoli is still beneficial, although not a superbennie.  Spinach, carrots, tomatoes, lettuce, cherries, plums, and prunes become black dot avoids. According to the book, page 191, "Some foods on the Hunter Toxin list need only be avoided for a short period of time so that you can regain your balance.  After 3-6 months, you can reintroduce these foods back into your diet in modest amounts.  They are identified by a black dot icon."

Thanks for the info, sluggerbean (BTW, I love that moniker ... it has a 40s noir feel to it like a character in a Dick Tracey comic   )
Sorry to be a pain. Is there any indication what "modest amount" means?
e.g. I eat 6 prunes a day. To some people, that would be a lot of prunes but I don't think it's that much.

The devil is in the detail as they say.

I wouldn't consider daily consumption of that many to be a modest amount.

You can eat dates---they kind of look like prunes to an untrained eye!  

As far as a modest amount...modest amount to me means if you get stuck somewhere and have to eat it then not to worry!  But everybody is different..and Individual!
