Well, I remeasured & I am definitely a Hunter type. This time I used a two-sided ruler & was able to see more clearly that my ring finger on both hands is definitely longer than my index finger. After I made that correction in my calculations I strength-tested strongly as a Hunter. Now it's all coming together & making sense to me.  I'm on my way to giving it a super try.  Thanks Don for all your help.  I don't think that I could have come this far without your guidance & encouragement.  We're all in this together & I plan to give it my all & share my experience with all of you.  I also look forward to share in your experiences too.

what do you mean superbennie? all i see is superfoods.


A "diamond" food is supposed to support weight loss, as I understand it.  Because weight-loss is key for me I try to concentrate on those foods as much as possible.

Welcome Rex!  And good to see you too, HG247!

I know every one is anxious to hear about my 1:00 am Hunter snack---well, tonite it is walnuts quickly heated with a spoon of Ghee and dusted with curry powder.  I'm drinking Grapefruit Juice and listening to Johnny Cash on Zune.

I keep thinking about Blue Agave Tequila...anybody want to take a vote?!

(posted this as well on the 'Finger Measurements'thread but wanted to introduce why I am now here!)

Well after being on the eating regime for about 5 days as a Gatherer and then having the last 2-1/2 days be full of inflammation flareups, burping after almost every meal, and now finally tummy getting swollen up like a barrel and constipation with a final struggle to pass what ended up being diarreha, I felt something was not right.  Something felt very off.

So I sat and spent careful time measuring and marking on the ruler my finger measurements 4 times tonight.  Studied the instructions more carefully in the book and watched You-Tube again.  Turns out I have been very wrong.

My ring fingers are visably longer than my index fingers (on the ruler); and with my other measurements all intact I went to the advanced calculator and no matter what way I try to spell it, I fall into the Hunter category.  

So I've been booted out by my body from the Gatherer Tribe to here!  

It feels so much better.  I was having such a hard time trying to fit into the Gatherer and had really come to accept what seemed to be my new road.  So to have it turn out like this is going to be much easier for my digestive system to wrap around!  Boy oh boy...

I ate all superbeni Gatherer foods with a few neutrals.

So if you are Hunter DO NOT eat Gatherer foods!!!

good luck more on the Hunter diet Funkymuse. The only thing i'm jealous of the Gatherer's diet is the Mushrooms they get to eat and the Kombucha.

Thanks... so far so good.  Yes I'm jealous of several things but there are a few new things other than what I used to eat on the O Secretor diet.  Not much has changed from that on the Hunter eating regime and I felt wonderful on that.

However the things I'm jealous of make me feel horrid so I don't feel too bad about not having them.

So glad you figured this out!  As Lloyd says there is some overlap...but not a lot.  When I was reading about the Gatherer diet, and before I measured, I was really hoping I wasn't a G.  I need the Protein from the Hunter diet.  Also, I've mentioned this before, but the H. Diet seems like a more sophisticated  
version of my O-nonnie diet.  I still am happy to be a Hunter--and very Happy for you Funkymuse that you are, too!

Thank you Myrabee!  I'm looking forward to this thread taking off.  The Gatherers have a good thread going....

Here's what I would like to share currently:

I made a Mango/Pumpkin protein shake today and man oh man!  You'd never think mango and pumpkin would go together but they do!

Also, I was so surprised to see Papaya off the good list for good!  But that's ok.. I'm looking forward to cabbage rolls again once 4-6 months has passed!!  And now when I eat Mooshi Chicken at the chinese food place (very rarely),I don't have to be afraid of the cabbage!  And another great thing is that now DATES are benies!!!

I spent a very frustrating time trying to get the everything measured right, doing all the measurements myself with no help, and came up Hunter which seems right.  I may order the taste and fingerprint test kit to see what they indicate, but Hunter came up strong on the strength test too even without them. So for now, I'm concluding I'm a Hunter.  And I guess no more collards, which I've been eating every day since I went on the BTD because they are easier to wash than kale.  And what about Romaine?

Romaine is a neutral.

Since you have your secretor status and blood type, all you need is Rh and leg, torso and finger measurements. Strength testing would be irrelevant.

I was eating collards almost every day too, now it's mostly mustard greens or turnip greens. The turnip greens are easy to wash but sandy.

What confuses me is that I have severe chemical intolerances from a formaldehyde injury, which made me think I would be an Explorer, certainly not a Hunter.  But there is no way I test for Explorer.

I find turnip greens insipid compared to collards, but I'll try mustard.  It's hard to get over the idea that mustard greens were Avoids and now are beneficial.

Also ever since I got the Arthritis book, I've been struggling to eliminate all brown rice from my diet.  I was about 90% through that process, and now suddenly brown rice is good, and spelt, and esp. kamut, are bad.  I'm kind of glad though, because I can't even buy spelt locally and it's costly to ship.

I have just found out for sure that I am a Hunter (thanks Lloyd and Gumby for your help).  Having long ring fingers certainly helped to cut down on the debating time  

I am waiting for my book (sounds of impatient finger drumming) but I am really keen to get on with things and exercise is top of my list.  

Am I right in thinking that Hunters should be exercising a lot?  There is no way that I am going jogging, I would damage something (I am not one of the tall skinny Hunters that's for sure  ). I walk for an hour most days and I have just started swimming a couple of times a week.  Would this be vigorous/often enough?  

Thanks

Thanks Lloyd, that is excellent.  I have always thought I was probably an athletic type with a marshmallow layer on top.   Now I just need to get rid of the marshmallow

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

I haven't tried not having meat for breakfast yet.  Since starting BTD, that has been the only thing I have eaten that keeps me from starving before lunch.

Speaking of lunch, I tried a new salad combo for lunch today. I had mustard greens and kale with broccoli.  It wasn't bad.  I squirted some grapefruit juice on it, since I had some grapefruit to eat with lunch anyway.  That was pretty good on it.  Then I had my salmon about an hour or so later during my conference period.

I didn't have time to make that salad dressing that Lloyd told us about this morning.  I guess I need to play with that tonight.

Any suggestions for salad combos?  Salad is the easiest thing for me to have at lunch since I only have a scant 23 minutes for lunch.

Hi there, I reserved the book with my local library, which it is out of. I was going to try the BTD but am thinking i should try this one instead? Or are they the same, .

I am a type O, I think a hunter, but how can i tell for sure? Looking at my hands, the index finger appears longer than the pointer finger, but i didnt know where to measure from to tell for sure. They almost look even from some aspects.

Anyhow, I went shopping today for Spelt things, and Ezekial bread, and soy things. And, now im wondering if i did the right thing?

I was a low carber on and off, which is the only way i could lose weight, but am looking for a more interesting and healthy WOE, and the BTD always interested me.

Nothing wrong with eating the food you bought.   When you get a chance to read the GTD book, things will be a little clearer to you and you can decide what you want to do then.

You could also visit genotypediet.com, it is a pay site but has many helpful features that you will not get here.

The GTD is built on the BTD. You will get a benefit either way (imo).



It is not my responsibility to convince anyone of anything.
