Like in most restaurants.  I'd wondered the same thing, and had always chosen chicken over beef, but chicken had started making me feel bad just before I learned it was an avoid on the Warrior diet.  I haven't had beef in three years, so I don't know if it affects me or not, but I do very occasionally crave it.

Very interesting about the omission of some of the red meats like bear and squirrel and rabbit.  I would guess then that they are neutral.  None of it sounds very good to me, but if I had the opportunity I'd eat bear just to try it, having never had it before.

I find it very interesting and amusing what's unfolding here when the Warriors get to fighting among themselves.  "Hey--you poked me with your spear."  "Well, you shouldn't have put yourself near where I had my point sticking."  Somebody in society has to be detail-oriented, and it seems like we ended up getting all those genes.  We have an innate need to get to the bottom of matters and have things right whether it's us who's right or somebody else who's right--as long as right comes out clearly on top, we can sigh in relief and go on to our next big project. Am I correct?

Well, Ribbit, the question about beef for me was always as clear as day because of the almost instant reaction I had to it beginning before I ever heard of the BTD. So it isn't anything that I need any answer from anybody about! The people I really have sympathy for are the ones having problems with diamond foods, partly because of my own problems with beans. I was talking with someone who is on the Warrior diet last night, and they are having the identical problems, and her daughter is too. I don't know the answer yet, except I have been thinking about trying them processed to a paste and, after getting a message from Janet B yesterday about that very thing, next week I plan to try them that way. I have tried everything else I know of - including addressing the possibility of polyamine overload with berberine, taking digestants of various kinds and food combining. I'm really hoping processing the beans will help because, as I've said, they really make me feel great once I get over them nearly killing me!

Right, but I was talking about a scenario in which beef and chicken were the only choices.



I plan ahead. If I'm going to eat with people where I'm not sure what will be served, I have a nice, big NAP protein drink ahead of time. There are usually things that I can nibble away on without people noticing that I'm not having meat. I have never been in a restaurant where they didn't serve some sort of fish we can have - even steak houses that some of our friends like to frequent.

this does not belong here but since you asked. Peter describes us as choleric.. here is what that means. Of course I put up the good stuff, but we have a down side as well. The one I like the best is that we are usually right ( second to last at the end).

Strengths of a Choleric
The Extrovert | The Doer | The Optimist
The Choleric's Emotions

    * Dynamic and active
    * Compulsive need for change
    * Must correct wrongs
    * Strong-willed and decisive
    * Unemotional
    * Not easily discouraged
    * Independent and self sufficient
    * Exudes confidence
    * Can run anything

The Choleric As A Parent

    * Exerts sound leadership

Well, as an ISTJ I'm not sure where I fit in that.....but that's okay.

I always carry a food bar with me at all times.  I mostly use the whey protein bars...They'd
hold me over for a few hours  This allows me to totally forgo all inappropriate protein in
a restaurant if I have no choices, and just eat a large salad.  I eat the protein bar afterwards....drink a lot of water...order tea....I also have a little bag of nuts in my purse...bits of dried fruit.  I also have green powder mixes that I can dump into a bottle of water...shake it up and round out my meager meal.

If I could survive on a vacation for 9 days, just two months after starting the GTD, I think
it's possible to survive for one meal in a restaurant even if the food choices are poor.

AND what restaurant wouldn't be able to give you eggs or a big vegetable platter...Most
restaurants have more protein choices than chicken or beef.

If I go to someone's house for a BBQ and think they night be serving chicken or beef, I
bring a few turkey hot dogs...

Chloe, I don't think you would have trouble surviving anything as long as you were still up and going! What some wonderful ideas you have developed for yourself. I keep Deflect and almonds with me all the time. Sure has saved the day for me more than once. But you take this thing to an entirely different level!! Good for you!

No one is fighting Ribbit. We are just discussing avoids and neutrals. I personally was kidding with my "sharpening spear comment..."

Maybe the spears are more like surgical scalpels, to separate the wanted from the unwanted tissue?
By the way, I did not want to identify with a lot of the listed properties of the choleric temperament.For instance, underneath it all I think I am very emotional, even if it is somewhat hidden.
