Thank you once again Lloyd.  I will have to go away and find out more about Teachers.  They had better be allowed to eat wheat, milk and eggs or he won't be a happy camper

Based on that data you have to be an Explorer.

Okay, I'm checking in without reading the other 102 posts.  (Sorry.)

I'm amazed about the turnabout in Bennies/Avoids: Apple juice, Walnuts.  What's up with that?!

I kind of suspected I'd have to give up soy, but what do I put on my cereal in the morning?  Not cow milk, not soy milk, not rice milk, not almond milk, not even hemp milk (which I bought yesterday).  Arrgh.  I guess I'll just use water.

So I'm wondering if I should bother getting my secretor status tested?


My SWAMI diet is a blend of BTD and GTD Explorer, but I'm not totally compliant.  Also I try to choose foods that have a Low Glycemic index.  DW and DD are A+, probably also Explorer.

well I understand your pain....
homemade ricemilk should be ok... basmati rice- diamond food.
Maybe also almondmilk since some of the other types have a separate rating for almondmilk to almonds.

I had a good day today trying to get as many diamond/ superbennis foods - but my body did not like the high carb low protein breakfast I had... so I need to work on that.

I just measured DH up - he's an Explorer!

And about us not being the same type! Typical!

Heh - and I can already hear the questions and the whining: "Why can't I have that anymore?" "Why is it changing again?" "Can I have that?" "Why?"

Well, I guess this Gatherer has to Explore the food-lists!

SquarePeg,
  I don't know if GTD gives suggestions for meal planning, but maybe you could fore go cerial all together.  Some one reasently suggested that I should eat my protein for breakfast, and it is amazing how much more energy I have through out the day.

I'm an A neg non secretor, torso longer than legs, lower leg longer than upper leg Explorer! Phew!

The lamb totally agrees with me.

Nice to have Ghee, Mozzarella & Paneer. Going out to Indian, anyone?

Pintos & Basmati Rice

Made lamb shanks in the pressure cooker in 28 minutes today. Fork tender. Tossed in some rosemary, Great Northern Beans & Collards, carrots, onions & shallots. Very tasty. Good winter food.

Are there any other A, Rh neg, non secreting Explorers out there?

Ironically, a friend in high school nicknamed me "Wrongway"

Almonds and Almond butter are both avoids.  I doubt that almond milk is neutral just because it wasn't listed.  I'm assuming it was an oversight that it wasn't listed.

As medavida wrote, it's probably best if I give up cereal altogether.  It's tough because morning meals are problematic for me.  There's little time in the mornings.  Also I usually feel nauseous in the morning and have no desire to even prepare food let alone eat it.

So, everyone, I'm curious, do you think that Explorer fits you?  Aren't there aspects of the other types that also fit you?

Personally I feel I fit the Hunter profile better.  I'll have to explain why later, though.

I don't feel like an explorer either.  And I'm having trouble finding beneficial foods to eat that are quick.  For fruits, it seems that grapefruit and apple are about all I can be sure to find at the grocery.  I'm happy to be able to eat chicken again (though not a bene.)  So, my attitude is not in the right place yet.

Oh....well I did quit coffee - this is my fifth day without, so that may explain part of my attitude.   I got a bit of withdrawal headache the third day, but it wasn't too bad.  I didn't realize what an appetite suppressant the coffee was.  I'm really getting hungry with the green tea.  But, I'm staying fairly explorer compliant. Must admit I did eat half a Unibar this morning on the way to pilates.  I was HUNGRY!   And to think two weeks ago, a Unibar had beneficial nuts and fruits in it!  Go figure.  


OUCH!!   My dogma was just run over by my karma!

.


They are only black dot avoids !!! - meaning you get them back after 3-6 months in moderate amounts.

Linda It does take time... I still have eggs some days... and alsoa bit of milk/yoghurt since my body felt it was more than enough that I have cut out coffee ( and chocolate,
Next week I´ll cut out my black tea in the morning....

I was so hungry last evening that I had to eat a extra snack around 9 in the evening ( dry cranberries and macadamia ).- I did notice that my day was not very high in protein .

I guess I just feel that my whole world is turned around.  I've been eating Explorer avoids and black dots for seven years!  What a habit to break.  I'm trying to get my head around the fact that I'm probably one of the few folks BTD didn't totally work for, being as I still have cholesterol and blood pressure issues.  And I really do want to lose those last 10 pounds!

I feel like it fits me very well, right down to the "I'll do it my way" quote. Just ask my mom, I used to drive her nuts always having to do things my way   And accident-prone? Wish I could say that one didn't fit   and the list goes on. I was pretty sure after reading about my three possibilities that I would be an Explorer, but did the measurements to be sure.

The new eating plan also seems to be working better for me. I was only on the BTD for 5 months, but had not noticed much in the way of health improvements and no weight loss at all, but I managed to gain about 8lbs.  

After just a week of eating exclusivly Explorer "Super Foods" I have energy without the aid of coffee and have lost 4lbs.

Like Linda, I was a little surprised to see how many things in my daily diet that had been "A" beneficals are now black dot or outright avoids.   I guess that could explain why I wasn't seeing the results I was looking for.

I am always hungry too.  Cheese was my quick hunger quencher.  At least I still have my rice cakes for nibbling.  I lost 1 pound without trying.

There’s a book called “They Moved my Cheese” or something like that.  I wish I was a Nomad, but I am adjusting to being an Explorer.

Wow. Feeling kinda isolated here. Terminally unique? I only see 3 type A Explorers here. There was a small group of Type A nonsecretors before. Are we all related (joke)?

Hi Zola! I seem to be an Explorer too. I say 'seem' because my upper and lower leg measurements are so close that if I'm off by 1/2" I'm a Teacher. I wish I was near the D'Adamo clinic to be measured properly so I'd know 100% for sure, but based on my medical history Dr. Colicci told me to try the Explorer diet for a few weeks to see if my health improves.

The Explorer does fit me. I strength test higher for it than Teacher so far - I still need to do the PROP test. I'm not accident prone but I do get lost rather easily. I mix up left and right frequently maybe partly because I'm somewhat ambidextrous?

My youngest (20yr old) is A - and an Explorer. My Oldest I am almost positive he is an A measures out as an explorer but I do not know neg or pos DH refuses to be an Explorer  and he MUST be an A or AB since those are his kids  
I will not waste money checking those 2 because they don;t care. I put the food out they eat what they want
(Bagels whole grain cereal Milk and such)Don't make me go there with them. I try.
