Maybe I missed it, but are you following the BTD or the GTD?  There are different foods for each list.  Perhaps in addition to what everyone else has said here, you need to try the opposite plan.


I'm on the BTD. I've thought about looking into the GTD, but it's taken me so long to get the BTD down and memorized. I'm not up for making another drastic lifestyle/diet change.

I absolutely agree with everything said on this thread about the importance of getting the gut right.   You cant get the nutrient uptake and energy you need - and thereby cure other problems - if its not right.

Bonjour expe4,
My thought would be make sure you get your red meat at least daily - beef, lamb, etc.
And my experience when I cut the carbs down too low was I felt a bit 'strung out'.   Daily rice (maybe miss one day to keep at 6 per week) basmati, brown or wild I dont think would have any detrimental effect, and may have calming effect - only "maybe" though

Getting my gut healed was the break-through issue for me also.  Once I quit eating gluten, that did the trick for me!

Anna, how often do you eat eggs?  I noticed your omelet in your meal listed above.  They are compliant, of course, but you may be sensitive to them all the same.

Is millet and flax bread or rice gluten free?  I don't think white rice is but I think brown rice is.  My problem is keeping weight on and healing my gut.  Right now I'm losing more and it's scary.  I was kind of sick for 2 days with some kind of flu or something though.  Had a fever and such.  So I don't think I was eating as much as I should.  But I was thinking adding some more grains might be the right thing to do to add weight.  Maybe I'm all wet.

Hi Drive55,
I eat eggs probably about 2-3 times a week. Does it matter how they are cooked do you think? I usually make a couple sunny-side up in the morning. I went for an omelet the other day just to switch things up.

I don't know personally, but many on the forum say to cook them as little as needed (but enough for them to be cooked).  If you suspect them, don't eat them for a week or two, and see what happens without them, and them see what happens when you reintroduce them.

If by chance you are an Explorer you could check out the sample SWAMI GENOTYPE diet posted on Peter's blog. It happens to be an O Explorer diet. I saw a number of avoid and temporary avoids for Explorers in you sample diet. (such as eggs). 4 or 5 measurements and you would know. I think this would only happen if your ring finger was longer than your index finger on one hand.

All rice is gluten free. So are flax and millet.

Wheat (including bulgar, semolina, ect.), spelt, barley (and barley malt), rye, triticale, and most oats (by way of cc) are gluten grains.

"I use quinoa flakes in my meat loaf instead of oats. I read that quinoa actually has more properties of a vegetable (like kale) than a grain, and it's highly proteined."


I have found quinoa in the form of little round balls.  I have not found flakes.  I wonder, is it in the cereal section?


Pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and start all over again.  Blessings, meribelle

If I was feeling real good, I could send you some.  My local store has organic flakes.  I like them pretty well.  My wife likes the regular grains better though.

Quinoa naturally comes as little round grains that can be cooked as you would rice.

Our natural food stores sell various cereals flakes that are made from many different kinds of grains;  some are in the boxed cereal section and some are in the bulk food bins.

Help me heal my gut...!
I've been on the BTD for almost 2 years now. For about the last 2 months I've been having stomach pains (usually after eating), bloating, bad gas and cramping. I haven't changed anything in my diet and I'm almost 100% compliment (i take Deflect occasionally if I know I'll be eating somewhere with hidden avoids). I'm working on portion control thinking that maybe I'm just eating too much?
I've finally gave up and went to the doctor because the pain was becoming unbearable. I got a blood test and no viruses, and in a week I'm getting an ultrasound to see if it's my ovaries. For the meantime, the doctor gave me something for the bloating and cramps, but I'd say it only helps a little...I still hurt.

I've tried also to variate my foods and I always mix in a beneficial with every meal. I was eating a lot of soy and dried fruits, so I eliminated that but still, no big difference.

Does anyone have an idea out there? Any suggestions are much appreciated!

Merci!


You certainly have my heartfelt sympathy to the nth!   For the first time in my entire life I managed to have a day without pain after I was on the Warrior diet for a few weeks. But my problems started up again after I tried to eat all of these beans Warriors are supposed to consume.

If I were you I wouldn't expect the misery to go away immediately. My stomach was so damaged some days anything I put in it hurt like crazy. Corn and so-called "yogurt" that was not cultured at all were my two biggies. Black pepper is in everything known to man in a restaurant almost, so I expect to hurt something terrible when I eat out. I do take Deflect every day and that helps quite a bit. My stomach is gradually healing since I finally found some REAL yogurt and quit eating anything to do with corn. One bite of something with a corn product (hidden in food that is impossible to know it has corn in it) will set my pain off immediately.

There was a while on the Warrior diet that some days I hardly ate anything I hurt so bad and was afraid something would make it worse. Goldenseal has been a life saver for me. If I were you I would study everything you can get your hands on about polyamines and what happens in your stomach when there is an over-abundance of them. Knowledge Base has quite a bit about it and it is addressed in Live Right for Your Type beginning on page 100. The following is a link to Knowledge Base

I do too travel a lot for my job and restaurants can be tricky. One night we were with a group of 20 and I could only choose from 3 things on the menu. With so many people, and ordering was complicated enough, I just went with the steak thinking I'd be safe, but of course it was covered in a heavy cream sauce. Even with Deflect, I slept horrible and woke up the next morning super puffy and in a daze. Each business trip takes me at least a week to recover.
This is my vinegrette that i use on just about everything:

Tablespoon olive oil
Tablespoon apple cider vinegar
Teaspoon of mustard (i found mustard with acv)
salt
cracked pepper
occasionnally herbs like thyme, herbes de provence, rosemary...

It's the typical French vinegrette used on salads, rice, raw veggies,etc. Except they use other vinegars in most cases.



Do you have a problem with MSG? Being in a daze after eating is a major symptom of some sort of intolerance and stomach pains are known to be related to MSG for some people. If you haven't already, I would certainly consider this possibility.

Hi,
maybe I do??? I usually cook everything myself from scratch. Thanks, that's a good point. Are MSGs in canned vegetables? I sometimes just eat canned veggies if I'm out of fresh or in a hurry. I make sure to rinse them good.
Thanks!

I was thinking more about when you eat out. So many restaurants use it in so many things, and on their salads and salad bars. Of course, it is in a lot of other things too outside of restaurants. But it will be listed on the product so you can check it. It is listed because so many people have a terrible problem with it. I have a close friend who nearly died from eating it. I just threw out some cans of chicken broth that had it in them. Of course, I don't need any chicken broth anyway on the GTD, let alone with MSG!
