I thought it was more like maybe once a year Dr. D. enjoys a dish his wife makes for her O-type?! I won't touch anything to do with a cow except cultured yogurt and the cultured cheeses that are recommended (if I could find any) with a ten foot pole!! I already know the stuff is the same as poison to me.

Hm.  If there were parts of the cow that a Warrior could have, I'd sure like to know about it.  Please do ask when you go.  It would benefit a lot of mixed-type families to be able to have it occasionally.

It was another thread I asked what Dr. D ate or if he ate off plan. I thought he said he ate steak once a week..I could be mistaken. Maybe it was once month or a year!

I will ask him. I'm writing down questions to ask him.

How many Warriors can't eat grains?  I seem to react to grains,(I was tested alllergic to grass) and beans...

Ruthie, are you only eating diamond foods?  What does your daily intake of food look like?

How do you ladies feel about the mercury in all this fish we are supposed to be eating?

We can eat some fish that is much less of a problem than others. But when you consider the fact that Dr. D. warns against frozen fish - and I would guess canned has the same problem from what he says, it really gets to be a real quandary in a grocery trying to come up with something that is even remotely all right. I suspect that all the fish there has already been frozen even though they have thawed fish that appears to be fresh displayed. I don't think I am going to be able to eat this way long term because I'm afraid to regularly eat canned and frozen fish, besides the fact that with the mercury problem the selection is so narrow. We can't fly somewhere and buy fresh fish to eat on a regular basis, and we certainly can't get it out of thin air.

I can understand companies wanting to flash freeze fish on the ships. One of the last times I ever bought supposedly fresh fish in a local grocery was when I brought it home and large, black worms started crawling out of it when it began to cook. The horror was absolutely unreal.

Another thing, it is almost impossible to find anything that is actually processed in this country. I don't plan to eat anymore from China. I was really sick after I ate some cod packaged there.

I hate to be so negative about this because I LOVE fish and would be delighted to eat it often. But I can't find any options that will work long term. I wonder if Dr. D. realizes what a bind it puts us in when he warns about frozen and canned fish. I know he expects us "to do the work" but what are our options?

My guess is, after thinking about this for two months, that my best course is to continue eating frozen and canned fish and take whatever supplements I have to take to counteract any ill affects from it. --The same way I'm having to do with even cultured dairy products and these ever, ever, everlasting beans and hope for the best.

It doesn't matter if the fish is canned or frozen, mercury is mercury is mercury. I've been having problems the last year or 2 trying to get FRESH, fresh fish. It's been rancid more than once and I had to throw it out. I also read that frozen fish is fresher because as you said, it's flash frozen on the ship and doesn't lay around getting spoiled. When you go to the grocer, you have to wonder how long has it been laying there?  Is someone on the Genotype website that can ask him about that? I'll add that to my questions for when I see him next month.

Black worms?  Ewwwwww!  

I'm still not 100% well yet. I had turkey sausage and eggs this morning and I feel woozy. This virus is hanging on. Seems like a 14 dayer. I used to get colds like that before elderberry. Now I don't ever get a cold. And my coworkers at the job were trying to bust me about the elderberry saying.."Oh, why didn't the elderberry work?"  You have to understand I work in a Medical School, next to a hospital..I work in MD land. Anything natural I suggest, is promptly shot down. By the way, did I mention that I almost got fired for talking about the Blood Type Diet back in 2003 when it came out?  Yep. Nice bunch of people, huh?   Big Pharma. Big FDA.

And some people might not like Durk Pearson and Sandy Shaw so much but they have been fighting the FDA from controlling supplements and vitamins for many years.

Diana, I use canned salmon and tuna because they seem to be the lesser of evils.  Of course, I eat supposedly "fresh" salmon too, but it is handy to have this canned salmon and tuna on hand.

It is too bad that you are on the front lines with diet in that atmosphere at work. My brother was a pharmacist/drug store owner and there was no way you could convince him that those chemicals were not just all right. He had more health problems than all the rest of the family members put together. I don't know what I would do without supplements. The Pharma bunch wants to get them nailed down and if they ever do, then supplements will be all the rage with them as they laugh all the way to the bank!

Not to change the subject (don't get me started on drug companies).....but back to the Warrior diet.

There had been some question of whether or not I was a real Warrior or maybe a Teacher, or maybe just a plain ole A Nonnie.  I think, after stepping back and evaluating my current life, that I'm a sleep-deprived Warrior, and no diet, how much I follow or tweak it, is going to help the sleep situation.  Only time will do that.  So to put everybody's mind at ease (as if you were worried about me), I've decided to stick with the Warrior diet for a few more months, see if I can get my children to actually sleep longer than an hour at a time, and maybe things will improve.  I may, at some point, experiment with the Teacher diet, or even go back to the A Nonnie diet, but I believe that the reason for the diet "failing" is not the diet's fault.  The problem is that I'm severely sleep deprived and my body's falling apart because of it.  Hurray for Warriors! I'll keep plodding along. Let's go eat some beets!

Ribbit, I have been worried about you and was happy to see you posting more again. I have thought all the time that there was no way that you could be anything but completely exhausted. I've been there with that getting no sleep, and it is a wonder people survive as well as they do!    Hope you enjoyed your beets! I finished off some salmon and a big salad. I am not eating any more beans for a few days and see what happens. My stomach is not feeling good after eating them for two days.

Four months?  (I know, it seems like forever).  My two year old still doesn't sleep through the night.  He wakes up at least once, calling for me.  The baby (9 months) wakes up every 1 to 2 hours, and only takes 1 or 2 cat-naps (like 30 min. if I'm lucky) during the day.  And that's without caffeine in my system. It's been weeks since I've had one complete sleep cycle.

But that's not what I wanted to talk about in this post.  This is what I wanted to say.  I went today to try on dresses because I don't have any that fit me that I can nurse in.  A friend's wedding is in a couple of weeks and I hate to wear a skirt and a ratty, stretched-out shirt.  Anyway, I picked out the 10-12 sizes because that's what has been fitting me from my own closet, and lo and behold, they were all too big!  Even though I haven't lost pounds, and hadn't noticed my own clothes seeming baggier, everything I tried on was too big!  So!  As much as I thought the GTD was  , now I think .

YAY for you Ribbit.....This is what I'm experiencing....inches lost but not pounds on the scale. I started adding CLA which is one of the formulas for Warriors. It's supposed to help burn fat.
I'll keep you guys posted on that.
