Quoted from Ellie
I have actually started to enjoy a bit of fresh grapefruit (the red ones).

I have tried cooking with ghee but there must be a knack to it, as I found it tasted too strong (but when the Indians use it you don't taste it).


If I use fresh, unsalted butter to make mine it turns out great! Was this what you made yourself that tasted strong?

wheat evil

quote]

This is rather confusing to me, Lola. Why would you say "wheat evil" when these I mentioned are superfoods for Warriors? I can't in my wildest imagination think that allowable wheat can be worse on my system than beans! If it is because there is the possibility of weight gain, never fear! I am not a fan of eating a lot of breads, but a sandwich with half a slice of homemade now and then or possibly a cookie every blue moon or so is my idea of the way to enjoy wheat. I don't have food addictions so there isn't a problem of me overdoing this at all. I don't need to lose weight because of anything to do with wheat, because I wasn't eating it when I gained weight. My system was completely out of whack because of severe external stress.

I'm another Warrior who has relished going back to wholewheat products since farewelling the A type diet, and the result has been splendid, no such thing as constipation ever again.
Even if there are lectins there that used to be regarded as bad for us, the benefits from other aspects of the food must be even more telling overall.




Eating half and exercising double.

the link I gave is titled that way...it gives the aspects of WGA which not all GT or BT can tolerate.....
don t forget this is not directed to you but to those for whom wheat is a toxin....
always chose organic wheat, when purchasing.....
glad wheat sits well with you warriors! and other GTs who can profit from it.

My friend sent this email note to me. This was the second time this week someone said this to me.


Hi Andrea

Just one more side effect of the Gt diet

I agree completely.  I love Indian food, but when I tried ghee on my toast it didn't taste good to me at all.  I have yet to try cooking with it.

I use unsalted butter to make ghee, but then I salt it afterwords and use it sparingly except in cooking.  

You know, I didn't realize it till it was talked about here, but my hair has stopped falling out too.  I was loosing it by the handfulls.  I lost 5 lbs. easily and quickly without effort.

Why is it that we can eat wheat again when formerly it was such a huge problem?  It used to make me depressed and sluggish and constipated...and, well, suicidal at times.  Why can I and some of you tolerate a little again?  Was it wheat in combo with something else unknown?  Or was it the A diet wasn't exactly right, and in combo with wheat it just did us in?  I don't really  understand it.  Is it just the power of suggestion before?  I don't think so.....but....

once your gut starts healing you can add the foods you were intolerant to before, but were still ok for your type.

great results!

I think that some of the subtle changes we have made in switching to the GTD has brought about a better balance in the way our different systems function with each other.  The BTD is very good, and right, and the GTD is just more specific.

I've noticed this also, Ribbit, not with wheat, but in my case I'm eating a little cheese again, and have lost 10 pounds.  Prior to GTD, if I ate too much dairy, I packed on the weight.  All else in my diet is not the same, though.  I think it's the whole package that works together so well.

I'm wondering the same thing. Not only wheat, but grains in general. I've been eating a serving a day and the weight still drops off! That never used to happen on the BTD.

How much have you lost Drea?  I seem to only be able to lose if I don't eat grains at all.  In a week I'll know for sure my Genotype, ok 10 days.

My O neighbor (not on GTD, but happily on O sec. diet) is in a size 4 and doesn't want to lose anymore, but she still does.  I told her that her body would stop when it was where it should be.

OMGoodness, That's fantastic!  I can't wait to see what I am from Dr. D.. This is so exciting, I must say. I have 22 pounds to go. I've lost 8 lbs so far hopping around (get it? HOPPING?! in time for spring!) from Teacher to Warrior and I tried Explorer, but I'm low carbing it and not eating grains.  I was hoping Dr. D, can fix my gluten and rice intolerance.
