I was just thinking that it would be nice to have one Typebase that had had both BT & GT listed so that if you looked up a food, you could see the reasoning behind the beneficial/toxin choice especially if it is a lectin issue.


Yes, that would be perfect!  Especially for us "Bomads".

By 'matching up' lists, maybe they mean making a list of foods common to both BTD & your GTD.
I already made a list of foods common to both hunters & gatherers when I was 'in limbo' between the 2 diets.
There are many common foods (of the types I usually eat).
I'm sure the O-nonnie diet is very similar to those 2 also.
I'm saying this as one who dares not dip her toe into the dairy pool! That is off limits for me. (I already eat butter & consider it a fat.)For you dairy lovers, it's a different story.

I am still refining what I should do. If I am truly a gatherer, it will be disappointing to know all that beef was only a neutral, but at least it was acceptable.
Whether I am a hunter or gatherer, there are a few favorite & cheap/accesible fruits & veggies that are difficult to give up. The rest of it should be reltively easy.(Chocolate is a diamond for both, to boot!)

But I am so glad for Dr. D's work that has improved my diet even after age 50! We will see what SWAMI will bring.

Really  I donīt think that there is any reason to be so afraid of neutral food
- it adds variety and variety is good.
BUT at the same time it is important not to forget the focus on SF/Diamond foods / Beneficials..

but if I couldnīt eat any neutrals...   it would be very difficult to eat lots of food
- like cake, wine etc

Oh, okay.  I get it now.  You don't mean an exact "match up", you just mean a side by side comparison of each food's status on GTD and BTD and the rationales for each, so that the user could see how the ratings and rationales match up, or how they are different.  I see what you meant, now.  10-4.  Kirk out!

This would be awesome!

If/when that new typebase ever comes out, I hope and pray that a less confusing naming convention will be used than the one in GTD.  The comma is used for everything there!

In some cases a comma is perfect, for instance, "Salmon, sockeye".  This follows the form "Type, subtype".

But then you have things like "Buffalo, bison" or "Garbanzo bean, chickpea", which is a list of different names for the same thing.  They would be clearer if replaced with "Buffalo/Bison" and "Garbanzo bean/Chickpea".

Then we have "Pepper, chili, jalapeno".  This is of the form "Type, subtype, another subtype", and it would be clearer to use "Pepper: chili, jalapeno".

While I'm knit-picking I'll point out that "wild", "wild-caught", "farm-raised", or "farmed" would be less confusing if they always appeared in parentheses (not just in the Gatherer diet!)

Quoted from Dr. D
It took six years from the publication of ER to eventually having TYPEbase and the Encyclopedia..

Give me a couple of months!


Okay, Lloyd, this post is the one that threw us into ecstasy!!   Actually, I don't care anymore. I'm doing so well with what I have that I'm not too worried about the when and what that comes next. That can wait. What I have to get lined up now is spending those gift certificates at NAP for my supplements. I think I am ready for them, finally. And there are still so many interesting foods to delve into and make sumptuous dishes. I'm just getting to the really FUN part of this diet!!

Had a little set-back with the polyamines, but I know a whole lot more than I did before, so, you see, something good comes from bad things sometimes!! Hopefully, I am now on my way again!!
