Wow. Feeling kinda isolated here. Terminally unique? I only see 3 type A Explorers here. -snip-
If it makes you feel better, my wife is Type A Explorer.

Just curious, are you a "medical enigma"?



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.

Great to hear from you all!

As for coffee - I know better than to drink it by itself - it bottoms out my blood sugar and makes me ravenously hungry. If I drink it,it's usually half a cup. I do this sometimes if I am at work and need to watch out for my safety and be alert.

I've always been able to fall asleep quite easily so that isn't a problem if I have caffeine.

As for the medical enigma - yes I am! From the time I was 15 I've had irregular periods. All the gynecologists and endocrinologists did was put me on birth control pills. I stopped taking them because of the horrible headaches.

I tried eating only stir fry, walking 8 miles a day, drinking bottled water and drinking lots of burdock root tea last summer and had a period.

After using the supplements recommended in the book for Explorers I feel much more energized. Guess I've got a sluggish liver.

I was born jaundiced and then had a systemic infection that they gave me IV's in the head for (babies have few veins large enough except on the head).

Now I see that we are poor acetylators (let drugs and things hang out in our bodies too long.)

Recently I had a blood panel that showed high liver enzymes. This looks like a pattern after reviewing past blood tests.

Have any of you Explorers had bad reactions to Tylenol (Acetaminophen)?


It is so pleasant to explore nature & oneself at the same time, doing violence neither to her nor to one's own spirit, but bringing both into balance in gentle, mutual interaction.

Greetings,
I don't mind too much all that soy business going as it was such a struggle to digest anyways. I just couldn't think anything else to eat so had lots of it. Maybe lamb gets easier to digest when all those avoids get avoided Still early days here as I just got the book - was dirt cheap but had to wait. worth every penny anyways. My partner's a GT5(?) Warrior... Did I got it right that you have to pay to get access to the official GTD forum?

Yest, but as book purchaser you can try the site out for a week free. The URL for the free week is in the back of the book (right after the index).

After much haggling over measurements, it looks like I am an Explorer. When I thought I might be a warrior I had a bad feeling in the pit of my stomach about it (felt downright cranky!) So I listened to my body!!!!! (and remeasured it)and here I am.

Have to change all my staples.Had oatbran, blueberries, flax and soy milk most mornings. There go my baked beans for when I can't think of something to make. Steelhead trout (that makes me feel so good and less achey, immediately after consuming), salmon, halibut, tomatoes, spinach & feta cheese salad are all out for now. Did rush out and buy cream cheese and swiss cheese and had some yesterday. Was good. Bought some beef soup bones and cooked them, couldn't stomach the smell so froze the stock for my "O" hubby.

Its been a whole 2 days and I am not sure how its gonna go. I will try!

Hello! I dn't have the book yet and am trying to figure out what I am. I am an A1+ secretor. Can we be Explorers? My legs are longer than torso, indx is longer than ring on both hands, and upper leg is lnger than lower. Don't have inkpad yet so don't know about fingerprints yet...maybe y'all can tell me SOMETHING. I think someone said id I am an A+ secretor, I can only be a Warrior or a Techer.

famlovpc, Using the advanced chart on page 294 of the GT book you are a Warrior (legs longer then torso, upper leg longer the lower, index fingers longer on both hands, A+ secretor). All you really need is your measurements, blood type and in some cases you secretor status. The fingerprints ect, are interesting but won't change your GT.

A few things it says about the Warrior:

Legs usually longer the torso
Long headed
Soft oval jaw
Slender in youth, tends to be pearshaped or barrel chested with age
Often has one or two arch-type fingerprints
Blood type A or AB both secretor and non
Non-taster or supertaster
Will pursue a mental challenge inexorably until it is mastered

Only rh- A's can be Explorers.

Heidi, Thanks! there has been a lot of talk with Warriors that the lower leg longer than upper means Warrior, but I see here you quoted from book. Thanks! Would you give me some facts about Teachers? Also, some said ring finger longer than index means Warrior-but I take it here, this is from the book. Thanks!

I'm glad I found this thread!  I think I'm an explorer by the description and RH- status.  I don't have the book yet (soon!).

I noticed that lentils seem to be a beneficial for explorers.

Out of the blue, I started making a lentil salad (with carrots, broccoli, onions, etc.) and have been eating it quite regularly since then and I have to say my complexion is quite good . . . I look quite tanned.

Funny how I just started to eat them and then read how good they are for explorers.

Will have to wait a bit before I can confirm my status, but it sounds like there are foods I miss so much, that I can start to enjoy.

How does this affect my eating if I'm following the arthritis food list?  Will there be a GT book for that too (I'm thinking yes)?

Here are some Teacher facts and measurement combinations.

Torso longer then legs, Upper leg longer then lower, and either index or ring fingers longer or ring on one hand index on the other. A+ and both secretors and non.

Torso longer then legs, lower leg longer then upper and ring fingers longer on both hands, A+ secretor or non-secretor.

Legs longer then torso, upper leg longer then lower, index on one hand and ring on other longer, A+ secretor or non-secretor.

Teacher typical features:

Natural exuberance and calm, steady way of looking at the world
Often blood type A sometimes AB
Secretor
Taster or super-taster

Hi, Heidi, Thanks. Everyone here is wonderful. Well, the 3rd description fits me EXCEPT-both index fingers are longer than rings. So-guess that makes me a Warrior...?.....not a Teacher, becuase they're both the same.

Hey everyone! First day on GTD as an explorer, and saying hello.

I signed up for the free GTD website trial. I tried the broccoli, grapefruit, and mozzarella salad recipe for lunch. It was actually pretty awesome.

I'm very curious what you're all eating for breakfast/lunch/dinner/snacks-- particularly breakfast and quick snacks. The snacks that are offered on the diet plan on the website aren't that appetizing to me.  I could do turkey at every meal, but aren't we limited to a certain amount of servings per week? Amy's Organic has a nice lentil soup that I believe is legal.

Also, how is the quinoa? I'm used to having couscous cooked in chicken broth with veggies.

I'm all over the place lol. Bear with me---it's day one. Just wanted to connect.

Quinoa is awesome - esp if you like cous cous, I have mine for breakfast with ricotta, apples, macadamias and maple syrup. But is also goes great with a lentil and pea curry  
  and welcome!

I am finding that it is not long and i am hungry again tho with this breakfast, which would be fine on weekends but during the week at work I need something that will last at least 4-5 hrs..

Breakfast ismy most difficult meal as well...
Today I had speltbread with mozzarella cheese, 1 apple and rosehip tea. not bad... but I miss my yoghurt and eggs....

Yesterday I had cold rice - that I heated with homemade almond milk and had with ghee and honey and dry cranbeeries.
Not bad... but too much sugar and too little protein....
I wont eat meat and fish in the morning- since I want to share that with my O
( unknown GT_ she is not finished growing... so no reason to freak her out ... yet )

Looks like almost half of the population of Europe are poor acetylators according to some academic work anyway. Here's the address to a PDF-file, you'll need to have an application to view it.

Tried quinoa for the first time last night with roasted chicken. It was with curry spices onions and peas.  Good explorer recipe.  Hubby hated it.  I thought it was edible.  Guess we'll try a millet recipe next time.


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

Quinoa tastes like corncobs(on the outside after eating the corn kernels-does that make sense?)to me - acceptable but not tasty. However you can mix it into other things well. So if you are making a soup or some big mix of stuff, you can put it in!

Thanks everyone for the quinoa ideas. It sounds very similar to couscous and I may try it tonight. Is chicken broth legal?

I survived day 1, though I skipped breakfast and one snack. Dinner and lunch seem very workable. Dinner last night was pretty good -- Steamed Cod, wild rice, and bean greens vinaigrette.

Still struggling with snacks and breakfast though. I like the idea of turkey bacon or turkey sausage and grapefruit, but can't have that everyday due to turkey serving limitations per week. Tried a rice cake with ricotta and raspberries for a snack. Blah.

Other than that, I feel pretty good. I do miss my coffee terribly. I hope I can remain complaint .

Hi everyone,

Be sure to rinse quinoa really well, several times ideally, before cooking to remove the bitter coating on the outside. It can really make a difference. Use a fine mesh strainer.

I was just going to post this also. Rinsing is very important. Or it will be very bitter.
