For me, I'm doing BTD...but don't mind recognising my Warrior status


What are your reasons for continuing with the BTD instead of the GTD? Curious minds and all that!  



Let go of resistance; feel appreciation for what is, and eagerness for what is coming.

Alright.  I understand why black olives are avoid and olive oil is beneficial.  I can imagine why bell peppers are black dot and hot peppers are avoid.  But what I just can't grasp is why in the world pineapple is black dot and pineapple juice is beneficial.  If I cut up pineapple chunks, I can't eat them, but if I run them through my Vita-Mix, they're good?  And I just can't imagine why blueberries are black dot, but blueberry juice is avoid.  

And I know that if something's not listed it's neutral, but I wanted to make sure of this: white pepper???  I miss black pepper terribly and would love to be able to have white pepper.  Am I to assume it's neutral?

I would treat white pepper the same as black pepper as they are both peppercorn and essentially the same.

There are several possible reasons for the other things you note. I don't know the specific reason but there are thing like flavanoids and digestive/absobtive process to consider, as an example. At some point I hope we get more information.

If you understand that foods get evaluated by several processes and that it is the result of the combined evaluation, it becomes easier to accept that a food can change it's rating via processing.

Re the pineapple, my uneducated guess is that commercial pineapple juice may be strained so that all the solids and fibres are gone whereas when you  mix up your fresh pineapple in your own mixer without straining you are essentially getting the same outcome as fresh pineapple.Just a passing thought.

So it would be better to buy pineapple juice that's been pasturized and all?  Wow.  Hm.  That's a hard one to swallow.

Indeed. I would use fresh made at home. Much better for you. You don't need to strain it perfectly, that's really beyond the scope of what was intended.

Still confused about the status of juice v. chunks then.Some clarification from people in the know would help here.

Go by what's in the book. Treat them as different foods. Juice that is not perfectly strained is still juice.

The diet was never meant to be a rigid regimen or to specify minute details. It is a solid guide that allows for individuality.

I've been reading these posts about pineapple\juice and suddenly it is getting VERY interesting to me. There is something (bromelain, maybe) in pineapple that feels as if it is digesting my whole stomach if I eat very much of it. The bane is that I absolutely love fresh pineapple! Now, I'm getting all excited wondering if I could get away with drinking pineapple juice - now, wouldn't that be great!!!!! I can't take bromelain, either, even though it seems to be great for different things. So is it possible that the bromelain is in the solid part of the pineapple and not in the juice? Somebody has to find this out for us before I go into orbit. I don't want to have to go buy pineapple to make juice and be disappointed! I already have too much stuff around here to get rid of without buying some more. Help!
