Quoted from Jenny
Good news Warriors --Dr D. has said in a thread on the Genotype site that there should be a black dot against mozzarella. Woo--hoo---------------


Well, whoopdedoooo! I like Dr. D. after all I think, maybe, for letting us eat a little mozzie in the future instead of these everlasting beans!! Just kidding. I am beginning to LOVE beans! They are so EASY to prepare and go down really nice with just about everything! Including walnuts - no kidding!

Dr. D. does need to address this business about chocolate and bone density. I have osteopenia and I certainly DON'T want any risks. Hershey's cocoa claims to have preserved the flavanol antioxidants. I just blend cocoa with peanut butter or almond butter, add a little maple syrup and a tad of soy milk. Roll in balls and eat with whole nuts. Keep in fridge. I only indulge in a couple of these a day at most. Caffeine is not my best friend.

Chocolate contains oxalate ó a naturally occurring compound in cocoa beans ó which in large amounts may inhibit absorption of calcium. However, the amount of oxalate in chocolate is small, so any effect on calcium absorption is likely to be very minimal. In fact, a small study published in 1989 reported no difference in calcium absorption between plain milk and milk flavored with chocolate. Also, many chocolates are now fortified with calcium.

Oxalate is found in varying amounts in many other foods, such as spinach, sweet potatoes, okra, kale, collards, chard, berries and tea.

Another warrior here.

Still a bit baffled. How did sweet taters go from being good to downright toxic? More information is needed. Scientific citations, please. Faith can be a beautiful thing...but only carries me so far. Please share your research, Dr. D. Enquiring minds want to know.

Here is another very good source on the same site:    http://whfoods.org/genpage.php?tname=george&dbid=48#answer

I would suggest reading this whole page if you are concerned about oxalates. I think we need some clarification about this concern. I read that list and some days I eat at least one or more foods from every single one of these groups - in fact, they are superfoods for us! No doubt, we are getting a very high quanity of this stuff every day! No doubt about it. Like 750 milligrams per 100 gram serving of spinach - 610 per 100 gram serving of beet greens. I think I'm going to stick with okra and collard greens in the "green" family until we hear more about this. In fact, since I was already eating many of these foods before I started on this diet, it makes me wonder if that is why I have osteopenia anyway. (This problem has NEVER run in my family! None of my grandparents, my parents or siblings ever had a broken bone and neither have I, so far.)  No wonder I have been desperately wanting some type of dairy product that was acceptable. I do hope our moderators will see to it that we get some help with this. I am definitely concerned.

Now, I will go and have a serving of REAL yogurt and take my calcium, magnesium and Vitamin D. ----And we started off being concerned about chocolate?! Wow!

Well, sweet potatoes were never on my BTD list, and, after today, I can see why. We were finishing up some dishes that were in the freezer from the holidays, and I was actually dizzy when I got up from the table after eating those sweet potatoes and the cornbread dressing. This was even after taking a Deflect! I have not been my best since, either. I did not indulge too heavily in either of these dishes, but they made themselves known in a big way. There is no doubt that this diet is different from the BTD in many ways that we haven't figured out yet. I could eat this same meal in the past and just have a few aches and pains for several hours -- never any dizziness or anything else like that.

Hi Rich, I think you are the first AB on this board to pop up, most of us seem to be A so the idea of sweet potatoes has always been out of the question for us.But I knew about sw.pot. due to two of my children being ABs. I share your concern, and although I have plenty of trust in this system, I must admit between you and me that it will be great when we can read more about the reasons for everything.It is certainly strange to think that for years one may have been assiduously following the strictures of the BTD only to find numerous items overturned, and in some cases promoted from Avoids to Beneficials and vice versa. Keep in touch and go on questioning.

Are you coming off the blood type diet and transitioning to the Warrior diet?

When I switched from the A secreter diet to the A nonnie diet I began eating sweet potatoes with abandon.  I'm disappointed not to be able to have them anymore.  I like them and they seems to like me.  But if they have something in them that's bad for me, even if they don't make me feel bad, I'll bid them farewell.

Thanks, ABJoe. We're not too far apart (OC&IE)! I'm still manuvering around this diet. I think I black dot more than I diamond. I am trying new things though. My avoid foods are tasteing a lot yuckier. Soon I believe I will be a lot more compliant than when I was on BTD(if I ever was)....Aani

Am I understanding this correctly?  We get our black dot foods back in 3-6 months.  AND
the diamond foods are supposed to be our best choices to eat often.

I like to think of it this way:
Diamond foods ---always will be good for the likes of me, being lifelong slightly overweight
All other superfoods----always on the shopping list
Unlisted neutrals-----sometimes eaten as treats but not necessary to health
Black dots can officially come back to the shopping list as neutrals in 3-6 months or whenever I think I am free of toxins
Toxins---never to be consciously eaten again (except when socially necessary and then as little as possible)

that's my interpretation!

What I was trying to say is I mess up all the time but eventually I will even out and be more compliant in my food choices. I'm just a bad girl when it comes to this. I just dieted way too much and having a hard time following any type of plan. I'm becoming more aware of my shortcomings and with time I'm sure I will overcome this. Even though I'm not compleatly compliant 50/50? I still get on the board. It does help....Aani

+Aan,

I am trying to learn Warrior foods for myself AND learn Teacher foods for the others in my house...  I do pretty well with the small lists, but the live foods and vegetable proteins are hard to keep in memory...  

My wife is now talking about remeasuring since so many of her favorite foods are now Toxins...   I put the book out so she can read for herself -

Great explanation, Jenny. Thanks!

I guess if weight loss isn't a critical issue, eating an occasional black dot food isn't quite as harmful as eating a toxic food.

I'm here. I'm just not posting lately. I was more... reading posts. I'm trying to follow the Warrior diet, I fell off and ate cheese and chicken..It's tough. No chicken, just fish, fish, fish. I hate fish. What about all the mercury?  I'm intolerant to chicken too...I'm not losing weight..probably because I keep cheating..I was cheating with mozarella..and I said to myself "Sorry Dr. D, have to have it" He must have heard me.    I do feel better not eating cheese. Dairy gives me acid reflux..

I have a hard time also and we are not the only ones I am sure. What I am finding out though is that I will eat the diamond foods. As I keep doing that the avoid foods are getting a tad more disgusting as I go. That in itself is a small miracle. I am noticing more of what I am eating and trying to correct meal by meal. Believe me this isn't rocket science and I'm no dummy. I know what I should be doing. Eating wrong has become a habit for me over the years and it will take time to correct. This website is a Godsend and I try to get on it habitually as well. It helps!...Aani

Well done Aani. It is comments like yours that will help others so much. I would never have thought that I could give up chicken, but even thinking about it now gives me a memory of the pain in the right side, just below the ribs that I used to have most of the time. I think I read somewhere that the bile duct gets inflamed with chicken.I have also decided to only use top quality- set- in- the- jar- yoghurt in future, as I realize that the added milk/cream is toxic in most dessert yoghurts.That should show an interesting improvement I hope.
