Quoted from Lisalea



I was wondering what happens when u eat lentils ?
Do u get sick ??
Btw, I'm sorry to hear that they don't do u well since u love them ... sigh ...

I actually love lentils but stopped eating them with BTD .. I look forward to eating them again with my basmati rice and vegetables and and LOTS of red pepper and/or curry !!
Yum  

Thank-u Kristin

Well... there's the rub.... I was eating alot of lentils when I was trying to be vegetarian and felt just awful (huge fatigue, blood sugar crashes) so I associate lentils with that time in my life. I don't really know for sure. I have an association with how I feel eating them, but I never really tested them independently. For nomads, they are an infrequent neutral so they aren't something I would choose to eat regularly anyway based on that status. But they could be fine once in awhile. I just have to let go of my preconceived notions about them.... which might not be accurate anyway.

Yes, Don, I just read it, that's about how I was thinking of this transition.

Ok Nomads,
I'm checking out to be a Nomad, after measuring my fingers, torso, upper and lower legs.  The fingers were a challenge since I got a different measurement depending on where I placed the tip of the ruler, but the leg and torso numbers were the deciding factor.

I have not yet done the fingerprint test, but I'm sure I have the white lines.  They are visible even without a magnifying glass!

Well I decided to cook like a Nomad today. Lamb sausage, sauteed kale, and spicy sweet potato pancakes(Rachel Rays version from foodtv.com but no white potato). Can't say I won't relapse under time pressure but I have enough cooked for a couple of days.

I've eaten turkey several times this week, which is a change from my daily lamb.  And I've eliminated beet juice from my morning juicing.  Little by little.

I can't tell from the book how often and frequently we can have yogurt.  The specification is only for cheese.

I've got turkey necks in the fridge for tomorrow when I will use them with either split peas or navy beans in the crockpot. Turkey going from neutral right to diamond beneficial is going to be both convenient and economical. A lot easier than finding moose or ostrich.

Turkey is a problem for me since I don't know where I can buy organic and/or free-range turkey.

This company sells organic at a variety of outlets: Outlet page

Google turned up a number of hits. I can get free range locally (if I recall correctly).

No outlets in my state.

I would prefer to buy local. I have gone the shipping route before with grass-fed meat and it gets expensive to ship the kind of poundage needed.

Hello fellow nomads! Truly a romantic sounding category, don't you think? What can I say?
"Have him washed and brought to my tent!"

According to the GTD online calculator together with my quick and dirty measurements, I am a  nomad. l also chose 'nomad' before submitting my measurements. I have been eating like a diamond grade nomad for years in order to correct my severe anaemia. And that has also meant avoiding foods like peanuts and soya both of which were beneficials for me according to the BTD. I really have to redo my measurements because the coincidence between Peter's new categorisation of someone like me and my own experience in negotiating the AB diet is positively uncanny.

Meanwhile, speaking philosophically, (and as a nomad) it's stimulating for me to arrive at another point of departure, Peter!

Whoa, any chance of an O non endomorph being a Nomad?  Because I want in on this action!  Where is my BOOK?!

Nomad or bust!  (But, face it, I'm a Gatherer ...well, at least I can console myself with my cottage cheese that I shall rush out and purchase once I actually know what's what, genotype-wise.)

Well Twisty if you are a good girl for 6 months straight, I'll make it again and let you have some. Can't let you have today's find, 8 organic kiwis for $1.99. Of course the split pea and turkey neck soup(curry spices probably) I plan to make tonight/tomorrow would be okay if I omit the carrots. Of course I want my okra! Rats!, pity party over.

Ick, is it possible to drink kefir?  I tried some a while back, and it was like slightly watered-down yogurt.  It was way too thick to drink.

I'm guessing that the beet's "good stuff" isn't in the juice, plus all the sugar in the juice isn't good for us.  With the "good stuff" gone, there's nothing to balance out all the sugar!

Beet juice is a powerful de-toxifier and can be stressful on the liver causing it to "dump". Since the liver is one of the organs susceptible to imbalance in the nomad, I suspect beet juice's powerful effects on the liver factor in too.

Kefir is fizzy?  I don't think what I had was kefir, then.  It was much better described as "gluggy".
