THis is strange but maybe someone understands. Some of the genotypes have "cherries" listed
a black dot food. I was looking at the ingredient lists of the genotype supplements. There is
a blend of nutrients, as part of a genoplex mixture that gives all formulas black cherry
concentrate (I assume that is what is is) as an ingredient along with turmeric, green
tea, garlic, dandelion, bilberry..  I'm thinking to myself, I'm supposed to be avoiding eating cherries for 3-6 months but I'm going to ingest cherry as a concentrate if I take any of these supplements for my genotype??  I don't quite understand the difference between cherries as a food and cherries as a concentrate. Avoiding eating a food for 3-6 months, but getting the food anyway by taking a pill?  Why would that be particularly beneficial?

OK, being thick here............

Does that mean any individual neutral food can be used 2-5 times weekly, or that 2-5 portions of neutral food in total are allowed?


When I read the quote from the book, I read that the category of Unlisted foods is used as the "They" in "They can be used judiciously..."  This would mean that you can use 2-5 servings of the entire category per week.

Think about, for instance, the Warrior diet where the red meats frequency is 0-1 per week.  Allowing 2-5 Neutrals from this category alone would be unthinkable for anyone serious about benefitting from the diet...  The focus should definitely be on the Superfoods, with very little from the unlisted or black dot categories...

You may be right, ABJoe, it could be 2-5 servings of Neutrals for each category.

I think the main thing is to eat as many Superfoods as possible -- then there's not much room for Neutrals!

very clever of him (Dr. D) to emphasize "what you do eat" since if we focus on that we won't feel deprived, rather than focussing on "avoid" foods, which has drawn criticism in the past. Also, as in WW (another famous diet), if you eat all the stuff you're s'posed to you hardly have room to think up bad stuff to eat.

just confirmed my genotype (GT3 teacher) and all this info and discussion can be somewhat overwhelming, BUT so glad to have access to help and support. i agree with the positive vs negative approach. like being rewarded with praise for one thing you do right instead of hearing about the ten that you did wrong! i remember reading about a psychological study that asked test subjects to NOT think of a particular idea. can you think about anything else when asked to not think about, say "the color black"? makes me think about the color black! lesson learned? quit thinking about what is an avoid/less frequent or even neutral, but concentrate on those superfood/diamonds!

I can't give you an across-the-board answer to your question, but I have noticed that although Cherries are a Black Dot for Teachers, yet Cherry juice is a Superfood.  So I'm thinking that either a) whatever's bad for me in cherries is in the pulp, not the juice, or b) cherry juice has such a concentrated amount of good stuff that it outweighs the bad stuff.  I suspect that cherry concentrate or cherry extract is used in some of the GTD supplements for one of those reasons, or for some similar reason.
