Sorry folks. I just re-measured with the help of my mom and I am a Teacher, after all.


And once more with feeling....I am indeed a Warrior. I triple-checked my measurements, and filled out the on-line calculator, including the strength test, and I came up a clear Warrior.  

As I said in another post, I'm sorry to have to give up so many beloved foods, but I'm going to give it a shot to see how I fare.

I just finished verifying that I am (for sure) a GT5 Warrior, based on my triple-checked measurements and the information in the book (GTD page 292). According to the chart, I cannot be any thing other than a Warrior.

I'm off to update my food lists...just when I had the BTD list memorized. Doh! Thank goodness the information is in Excel (easy to modify).

All this enthusiasm is great!

I just joined the Warrior ranks...  

The food lists seem to reinforce what the body was telling me...  I don't need much meat.  Fish, vegetable protein, vegetables, fruits and a little bit of breads...  

There are a few surprises in the lists, but it may be due to individual characteristics.

I am shocked that black tea is now a super beneficial.  

And so, so saddened to see chicken, blueberry, cherry, pineapple, jerusalem artichoke, broccoli, goat cheese, and pecurino go by the way-side, among other things. Oh my!


I haven't been on the forums for a long while but still following BTD although I confess I have fallen off the wagon more than once, make that crashed the wagon...but maybe this will rekindle the fire.  AND hey what do you know Isa - I also made Warrior status!!!

On  the page I am looking at broccoli, pineapple and blueberry, at least, have a black dot besides them...doesn't this mean if you are not battling an illness and the weight is stable they are OK in modest amounts?

Jumping up and down with joy black tea, super beneficial and coffee OK

Black dot foods can be eaten after 3-6 months on the GTD, in moderation, unless you are battling a weight problem or an illness.

What navigation charts are you going to use?



Call it my "gut instinct navigational chart" and ironically, many of the foods that turned up beneficial for a Warrior, I'd been eating all along as a type A....my entire life...never have given them up even when they were blood type A avoids....Most of the type A foods were fine for me..I liked the A diet and will probably still stick with the basic premise of the diet because
it feels naturally suited for me........My intuition always overrides anything anyone
tells me or anything I read.  I know chicken was never a good food for me..I feel it in my
body...I never ate it as a  type A neutral and I haven't eaten much chicken in my lifetime..
nor beef...nor any meats...I never ate potatoes or bananas or many of the type A avoids
because these were always foods that felt wrong for me.....I know mostly all fish and seafood are fine for me, regardless of how it's listed, as long as it's low in heavy metals and PCBs I eat it....Only thing that causes me not to want to follow this new list of foods is the fact that I don't tolerate caffeine or any dairy and I'm gluten intolerant...Coffee is good for warriors but
I hate coffee and always did....I get to the point where I don't like being frustrated and don't like following rules to begin with...Perhaps that's the sign of a true warrior...I love the sound of my own drumming... and would sooner walk out of a room than stand and disagree with anyone. I also don't see how with this detailed configuring of my finger length,
my legs, my torso how we've already found out that Oprah Winfrey was one type and Hillary
Clinton a warrior.  HOW do we know this when these people haven't measured themselves?
And they aren't Dr. D's patients?  Or maybe they are, along with Winston Churchill...~

According to my fingers, torso and legs...I'm a warrior.

When i noticed the blank spaces in red meat and poultry, it came as sort of a surprise.

However I was a vegetarian before BTD.

Looks like I'm back where i started.  This is kind of cool.

Some meats and poultry are neutral so you can eat them occasionally as indicated by the frequency recommendations in the book.

Not quite vegetarian Ruthie, the diet suggest several servings/week of fish. I will admit that you can count on your fingers of one hand the number of neutral meats, or poultry and times per week suggested.

Welcome! We seem to be a minority, so glad to have another Warrior.

Welcome! We seem to be a minority, so glad to have another Warrior.

Today I've enjoyed a couple of cups of 'real' tea, some slices of cantaloupe, some wholemeal toast, some bran cereal and an omelette flavoured with strips of anchovy.This time last week I
would have been out of my mind to indulge this way, but now I am enjoying items that I have forbidden myself for 6 years. Feels strange, but good. Giving up chicken is my biggest loss, but strangely the last chicken meal I had a week ago left me with stomach pains, so maybe the answer is as clear as that.
Turkey will be my standby for entertaining non-vegetarians so that I can join in.Not planning to use soy milk during this 3 month period, so am getting to know rice milk.
The whole thing is weird and wonderful.

One thing that really resonates with me is the conclusion that Warriors are the most fertile of the genotypes.
I've had 5 kids and became pregnant with 2 of them while using contraception.  None of my friends reported this, and we were using the accepted device at the time.
As I said on another thread...my husband used to say I could get pregnant with his hanging his pants on the end of the bed.
Of course it took more than that!!

According to reading the paragraghs about each tribe I think I am a warrior. I have not done the measurements yet. Even if we are allowed meat I will probably stay away from red meat & poultry.

I am at the middle age time where weight is becoming an issue. I used to could eat anything but now I have to be very careful. The aging part I have not discovered yet because I take care of myself.

Hey baby, life is just beginning at your age!!! By all means be careful,but don't think of yourself as middle aged. You won't have enough words left for when you are 50,60,70,80,90

Warriors are very limited on both the red meats and poultry that are not toxins and the frequncy for the few neutrals remaining.  

I'm trying to get the frequency amounts in line for the various food items, and find that the vegetable and fruit frequencies are very generous...  Even though I'm almost always eating from these catagories, it seems like I never exceed them.

The two foods I need to work harder to limit is broccoli and Ezekial bread.  They were beneficial before and now are black dot toxins.  I think broccoli is causing me some flatulance, so better to avoid it for a while to verify.  I haven't noticed a problem from the 100% sprouted bread, but to be more compliant and set a good example for my wife and daughter, it is important.

Where are all the Warriors?

Are we shy?

It would be good to hear about our success with this new concept.  I am already seeing favorable results.

Hi ruthie, another Warrior here. I'm doing great, eating more almonds and apples (on the BTD they were categorized as neutrals).

The warrior population on the board seems to be significantly lower than what Dr D predicts for the general population, at least according to the census poll we have going.

Unless warriors are too shy to vote?

I think I'm a Warrior just by taking my finger measurements. But until I receive my book, which should be next weekend I won't know for sure.

Yikes!  What happened to all my chicken and turkey??    Yes, I see turkey is a neutral but only 0 to 2 times per week.    I'll survive, but I'm not so sure Warrior is right for me.  I've had some doubts about my upper leg measurement.  I will take that issue to another thread more appropriate for measurement questions.
