Oooh and I have some fruits in the freezer, which I will be eating, berries mostly, possibly with an oaty crumble type topping mmmmmm.  Naughty... maybe, but better than throwing the food out lol.


Ha.. you make me wonder if there is some secret little devious part of us that just has to find a way to cheat and be 'naughty!'

getting away with something... that little boy or girl in there sneaking the choc. chip cookie off the baking pan as it cools and Mom isn't looking!  ha!!!!

I think there is something universally appealing about being 'naughty!' HAAAA!!!

ok I frankly am using occassional black dot foods and find it makes life easier. I haven't lost weight, but I am in great health. I feel I need that leeway to make it through life....I still won't overdo it and I still watch what I eat very carefully (except once in a while )   (and even then)

White rice.  It's a black dot for me.  I did not cut it out at all.  The reason, my mom does the cooking and she's Chinese.  I figured, I already told her I'm not eating beef, pork, and chicken.  White rice is the lesser of the evils.

I d try that sound approach for a longer period of time....might be the reason for your tenderness, perhaps>

I have eaten some squash and one day I had some frozen cherries.  I do eat cashews some.  I can't say these things are really bad for me.  I just followed the diet because that's what it said.  Mostly I'm still avoiding dots because I'd like to lose a couple more lbs.  I have about 3 more to go before I'm at pre-pregnancy weight!!!  I love the Warrior diet because I feel better, some weight just fell off (and the inches vanished!), my skin looks better, my hair quit falling out.....need I go on?

I'm going to continue to do without most black dot foods.  Oh, I do have to say I still eat millet.  The rest of the family eats it and I just can't cook all that many seperate foods.  I do it for convenience, and I don't feel like millet is a problem.

Since we're talking about foods that might have been left off the lists in the book, can I ask about white pepper for Warriors?  I know the status of black pepper, but I question whether it would automatically be the same, especially since it doesn't say "Pepper, black and white."

I started eating more and more black dot foods, and some of those precious pounds lost have returned  . I'm going cold turkey (ha ha) and giving them up once again.

Another thing I've noticed is that in the last two or three weeks, the pain and stiffness in my fingers has gotten a lot worse. Black dots are now history (at least for another three months).

Indeed I do! Unfortunately, I tend to forget the drill from time to time. Complacency is a two-edged sword (huh?).

Still can't totally fathom if I'm hunter or gatherer so I've combined foods that figure and cross over in both diets and apart from the live foods there is no problem. To solve that I have to use the occasional black dot live food, tonight I had kale and tomatoes as part of my evening meal, everything else was mainly super or super diamond.

Well after going black dot free (except for 1/2 cup black cherries) yesterday, I came down with that horrid flu.  Been in bed all day.

No black dots today and I've made a re-commitment to NOT drink any Hazelnut milk with the avoids in it and take the time to make homemade rice milk for the times i need a milky liquid in cooking and/or shakes, etc... So that's one huge black dot I'm giving up.  Plus no more cherries and no more coconut bars.

I've mananged to make homemade mayo eveytime I want a tuna/salmon salad mixture and egg salad - so I'm proud of that.  Sure miss that Vegenese however.  

I'm really going to do it now because there are plenty of other foods to choose from really.  And for me it's easier to just have certain foods I can eat.  Cuts down on the shopping without so many choices ya know!

Yes, I do, mostly on weekends. Like lentils, carrots, spinach etc., as part of a dish with other beneficial & neutral veggies. White rice. And when eating out I dont know what type of cooking oil they use, so...

If I were to follow the definition of compliance as per BTD, then I'm still on high compliance and definitely not a deal breaker. That, however might be different in GTD. Coz apart from deal breakers we have to deal with microphone grabbers !

What is tripping you up?  Maybe if we put our collective heads together around here we can help you figure out which genotype you truly belong to.  That's what we're here for, to help each other.  And knowing your genotype is pretty important, so feel free to ask for help in figuring it out, measurement-wise, etc.  We're here for you!

I have to tell you the contest thread on diamond foods:

http://www.dadamo.com/cgi-bin/Blah/Blah.pl?m-1208279129/

has really cleaned up my act on Black Dots.  Haven't had any since the contest started and it's getting easier to avoid them.  I think I might really make the 3-4 month mark now and can eat them without fear of awakening noisy dis-ease genes!

I highly recommend playing the game if you want to really get to know the foods lists and try out your diamonds!  It's a great way to learn!
