That was pretty funny.

I "took an inch off" my lower leg length because after reading all the discussion about how to measure your legs, I realized we'd measured the wrong bump outside my knee.  My husband has a really prominant, boney bump, but I have none at all.  It's just smooth, and even poking around it was really hard to locate anything.  My legs are really skinny, but even then it was hard to find.  So after I looked at all the diagrams, I realized that we'd measured to the wrong boney bump, but with that change, my genotype made even less sense.

That explains things for me, Ribbit. I hope you find the answers you are looking for regarding your type. Let us know if we can help in any way.

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  



Hi Sue, I'm a Warrior too, how about Taswolf? Isn't it remarkable to drink black tea, and enjoy so many treats now, with tomatoes and eggplant to look forward to down the line.
I am really cool with the idea that changes occur, otherwise why would science go on trying? Maybe there have been mistakes in the food testing, or maybe its just that taking all the other genes into account, there had to be some re-adjustments.
Cheers,

I've printed off the food list, so I'm OK with all of that but one question (because I still don't have my book yet! ) Where it says "Toxins to limit or avoid"...what exactly does that mean?
a) these foods are toxic and should be avoided?
or
b) these foods are toxic, so limit your consumpution?
The reason I ask is because it also gives a "Fequency: 0-1 times weekly/0-2 times weekly"
Sure would like some opinions, thanks.

Alright.  Here's my problem.  We remeasured this morning after I read all the threads about measuring legs.  With my upper leg kind of stretched out....

Here's what we have:
Torso longer than legs
Upper leg (15 in) longer than lower leg (14 in)
index fingers longer than ring fingers
A
+
nonnie
Teacher

Strength test: 0

If I have a strength test of 0, I have to assume I did the measurements wrong.  So I change my foot placement so my foot is directly below my knee, and then my upper leg measures equal to my lower leg...

So then we have:
Torso longer than legs
Lower leg (14 in) longer than/equal to upper leg (14 in)
index fingers longer than ring fingers
A
+
nonnie
Warrior

Strength test:15

The problem is, I believe the correct measurements were choice #1, putting my upper leg longer than my lower leg, yet the strength test is 0.  Should I assume I'm measuring incorrectly and go with the Warrior diet?  Or should I go with the Teacher diet, even though I test 0?

Hi Rabbit...that's what I was told...torso longer than legs and idex fingers longer than ring = Warrior.
I haven't done any strength tests as yet...

BTW...I had the same problem with not being able to find that bone just below the knee...not much meat on my legs either, but Joseph's was very prominent! Must be the difference between male and females.
But anyway...my torso was longer so an inch or so wouldn't have made any difference.

So, all things taken into consideration, my upper leg being longer than my lower leg wouldn't throw me into the Teacher category?

Nope...seems to be about torso vs legs + fingers.

Well, I was checked by Susana and Drea...both said I was a Warrior Woman!!
Actually, I thought I would be a Teacher according to the discription of the quesionaire on the GTD website but seems not when it comes to the measurements...I'm not.

Janet, I treat the toxins as avoids; with the exception of the black dot foods which can be re-incorporated back into our diets after a period of 3-6 months, unless we are battling an illness or are gaining weight. Does this answer your question?
I think the answer is yes to both...

Yes, I think so...
It's just about me liking some lamb/goat/venison! I just feel the need to eat a very small amount about ONCE every couple of weeks. Have to say that I have no ill effects from this amount, so shall probably continue.
Thanks Drea.

If you are using the advanced tables the strength test does not apply. The strength test would only apply if one or more items for the advanced table was in doubt.

If you feel the leg measurement is in doubt, then you could use the strength test to tie-break. If the lengths really are equal, I would suggest giving Teacher a try for a while.

It is likely that there will be a few people who are on the 'cusp' and would do better on the diet not indicated but the vast majority should find the 'tie' rule to work properly.

I'm the same way girl. I feel I need some meat once in awhile too. I like venison. I won't eat a goat or a lamb. They're too cute.  Like my avatar?

Whew.  There's some real big differences between the Teacher and the Warrior diets.  I guess I'll take Lloyd's advice and do the Teacher diet for a couple of weeks and see what happens.  But how do I tell the difference between a detox reaction, which it looks like I should maybe expect one, and a toxic reaction, if I'm ingesting a bunch of new foods that might be avoids for me?  

I am the Teacher when it comes to the Psychological aspects, but none of the Biometric and Biochemical aspects.  I have all the strengths and weaknesses of a Teacher.  I am a Warrior when it comes to Biometric and Biochemical, but not Psychological.  

Alright, maybe I should try being a Teacher.

I realized that after I posted...cute little babie dear..
I watched a travel show on Italy, (I'm 1/2 Italian) and they showed, in the market place there, at Easter time, butchered lambs for sale. It broke my heart.  I never did like mutton or lamb even before I saw that. I'm not a big red meat eater...Once in awhile, I'll have a yen...  My sister who is the same BT loves to eat lamb and red meat. I think I'm pretty Warrior-ish.  And Goats with those cute long  little ears, and goatee. Baaaaaa!

"Any other Warriors lurking about?"

"How do other As who are Warriors feel about the Warrior diet suiting them better than the
type A diet?"

Here I am, another Warrior.
  I think the only non-secretor Warrior (so far?)  The Warrior Diet is exciting to me because it's a new way of eating and thinking about food. The idea of thinking about what to eat because it is good for me rather than to avoid certain foods makes a difference for me. Now that chicken is not on my list of beneficials  I eat fish, tofu, beans and nuts and all the other foods that are good for me. Perhaps this diet will suit me better because I'm now ready to follow it better. Right now i really have a need to improve my diet. I'm experiencing that middle age falling apart that happens to Warriors. I'd been holding it together up until last year about a year ago when I ruptured my quadicep tendon, had surgery, and recovery was slow( 4 months off my feet 9 months of physical therapy). My energy is not where it used to be. I'm going to focus on my Warrior diet, do my best not to over exercise, and take my supplements.

I'm still quaking in my boots in indecision.  This may not seem like it's that big a deal, because after all, I can just try one diet and see how it is, and if I feel terrible, I can switch to the other, right?  

But here's what's going on (besides the insanity of having 3 children under 5 in the house).  I've been feeling really awful for about a couple of weeks.  I feel like I'm in a constant state of "crash mode" that I can't pull myself out of.  And I don't know what to eat.  Before, I'd eat lentils--they were like my cure-all and I'd always feel better and have plenty of energy.  But it's not working now.  I'm not really sick, but I just don't feel good.  Ever since we had that stomach virus over Christmas, the whole family (mostly just the children) have had nasty gas and probiotics haven't helped.  I didn't get the virus all that bad.  I never actually threw up, but I felt nauseated and ran a fever.  But it's like my body just can't quite shake it or something.  My stomach has hurt for a month now (and no, I'm not pregnant again....I don't think....).  And here looms the idea of totally revamping my diet, which would be fine if I knew for sure what category I fell into and which diet to follow!  I'm just really bummed right now.  I need some encouragement.  Help!  

Maybe somebody could answer this for me.  (Where's Isa when I need her?)  As an ISTJ, is there more of a chance that I'm a Warrior or a Teacher, if I'm right on the edge length-wise?
