In the Genotype Diet book under Carbohydrates it's listed:

Rice, Cereals-1/2c
1/2 muffin
1 slice bread

2-3 times daily.

What does this mean really?

My interpretation was if I go for the max *dosage* of 1/2C Rice thrice a day , that would mean no 1/2 muffin and no 1 slice bread. Even with a lower dosage of 1/2C Rice twice a day, it would mean no muffin and bread.

Or, does it mean one could have 1/2C Rice 2-3 times a day AND 1/2 muffin 2-3 times a day AND 1 slice bread 2-3 times a day?


I know it's a recommendation and we dont split hairs over quantity and stuff, but I cant help feeling   why a lot of Os (all Genotypes) have resorted to eating grains for b'fast instead of high protein and veggies. The grains could be classified as a Diamond, but it's still grain and not high quality protein.

Comments please  ...

I think it means having two or three of those 3 choices.




EG. either 1/2 rice + 1/2 muffin per day

or

1 slice bread + 1/2 muffin + 1/2 rice or per day

or


1 slice bread + 1 slice bread + 1 slice bread

That was my interpretation too, it is confusing  .  And I'd agree with AC that as an O I'd rather stick to my protein breakfast as I just feel better with that than having grains.

A/C, I'm confused w/ you. This is why I'm back to BTD........too many of the foods that were avoids on the areas I need to work are now Super or Diamond foods on GTD. I feel like I'd be making myself worse in the long run. I KNOW BTD works, so I'm sticking w/ that. Best to ya!!

yes, but if you really only had the half cup of rice 3 times a day and that's it! it would probably be fine. and might even be good....with eggs.

AC, I think it is important to check how you feel. What I now do is to try something for a short while, if I feel good, I keep it, if I dont' feel good I don't eat it anymore. Your body knows best!

The question wasnt for myself actually  . To me, the most valuable lesson learnt when I joined this forum was to have high quality protein & vegetables for bfast & lunch and then may be grains for the evening meal. But even that had to be done with great caution. I didnt learn this just by reading LR4YT, it was good advice given by well healed (heeled) BTD followers. The "Dinner for B'fast" advices, remember?

I asked this question coz from the very many posts on the GTD thread, I noticed the sudden shift in an O & B's eating habits. That, Diamond Grains have some what taken precedence to a protein+veggie bfast & lunch.

Yes Lola, the GT2 Diamond grains are high quality protein...but how well does that, plant based protein albeit, equate to animal protein, especially for O's?

IB, my system has achieved more balance under the Hunter regime actually ...

Hunter choices differ from Gatherer choices and so on.....
I can t help but marvel at the complexity involved in Dr Ds individualized GTDs. An interwoven tapestry of gene silencing and activation. Very impressive!

my O nonnie physiology feels good with my new choices of gatherer carbs, that s what I mean.....I know I wouldn t feel as good adding other choices which were once ok but turned out GT avoids or black dots.
