Dr. D, I know you're not really supposed to give a whole lot of input here, but will you tell us what the GTD has done for you?  Or are you so incredibly healthy that there wasn't much of a change (no "tox to de" as PT once said)?  It's June.  Did you avoid the Warrior black dots for 3 months or 6 months, or are you sticking with the BTD?  Are you allowed to say on this site?

As for me, I'm beginning to see some 'six-pack' abs of all things!

And I'm currently only doing yoga 3 times weekly.

Six years of martial arts (and a couple of hundred thousand crunches) had no effect whatsoever.

So, he does GTD then?  Strictly?  
I have to admit that I'm trying a few things here and there.  I've given up spelt - I knew it wasn't good for me anyway - and I quit eating iceberg lettuce for a while.  I'm just curious as to what the results will be.  As of right now I'd have to say that I feel like I have a bit more energy.  I'm on my 4th day of no spelt and I'm not as tired as I usually am.  Almost similar to the feeling when I gave up wheat.

I find it very encouraging that Peter follows his own advice.  He actually believes this stuff . I wonder if Ornish, Atkins  etc.. you know who they are actully live what they write. You know the saying "do as I say not as I do"

I'll bet Peter has been following the Geno type Warrior lifestyle, way before it was published. He and his family are the perfect test subjects. Now of course I am guessing on this, but his whole personality/work/life radiates how he lives. He also has a vested interest, he has two young daughters and a family history of breast cancer.


Have you ever been to a doctor that is overweight and he is busy telling you to lose weight for health reasons? How does that make you feel?

Have you ever been to a doctor that is overweight and he is busy telling you to lose weight for health reasons? How does that make you feel?  


I had a blood pressure check and was told by a vastly overweight and sweaty nurse that I had 'fantastic blood pressure for someone of YOUR weight'.  I have to say, sadly, that my reply wasn't the most polite it could have been   and my BP probably went up a notch at that point.  

Hats off to Dr D for following his own advice and sharing it with the rest of us via the books, websites, blogs and podcasts.

I'm overweight (by a stone), I'm certainly not obese, and I'm in good shape.  And my health, apart from a few 'minor issues' is far better than most people I talk to.  I put that down to BTD/GTD.

Lost a few excess pounds, resolved and old skin rash on my shins, have more energy now (cycling versus martial arts), skin tone is better, memory retention sharper, much less inclined to overreact to things.

Gangsta sista'lol..that's funny..yeah but if Dr. D looks like Shaun T underneath his shirt..look out! HHAbs for Dr. D..it is!   He snuck in an update...while I wasn't looking.

BTW, I signed up on the Genotype website..I saw you there..They are in serious need of an "Off Topic" forum..It's too segregated. I saw a few regulars..ABNoway, you, Lola & Lloyd are the moderators, C#, Dottie1, to name a few.. We need to shake things up...

Yes, I was told I was thrifty also..I know the feeling.   So a stone is 20 lbs? That's about what I have to go..and Warriors usually carry their weight ok, but wow, since I've been doing HHA, I'm looking better. This week and next week I've been busy with my son..who's graduating high school. I'll have to fit it in somehow this weekend.. Oh, and I got the Ultimate HHA 2, and the Dance Party..I'm set for life!

Did you get the Leg Magic yet? My pants are getting baggier. Yay!

So, Dr. D..you increased your cardio..hmm.  Interesting.. That's what I did with HHA. (Just comparing Warrior notes) I also had a rash on my ankle that I showed Dr. C ..that's also slowly clearing up. It's almost gone.. when before I came to the clinic, it was a pretty big spot. Overreacting wise...I don't usually, but lately I have been..as a result of not meditating enough and too much caffeine.. my bad.

Gangsta Sista we should ask for a photo of our new HHA pin up  

A stone is 14lbs, if I lose that I'll be in the right weight range, but in an ideal world I'd lose a half stone more.   Are the Ultimate HHA and Dance Party dvds any good?   I missed HHA for two days this week, will catch up tonight and be a good girl at the weekend, do my workout by DS and B/F are in bed lol.

Yeah I get ya on the GTD site, it does need a bit of a shake up, more chit chat, shall I ask for an off topic forum?  Maybe start a few new threads to get things moving a bit.   What's your ID on there, are you still Mayflowers?   I figured I'd stick to just being me still lol.

I meditate too, just a habit really, my Dad was into Aikido when I was a kid, so we learned the basics and his 'mentor' a guy called Marian, taught us all meditation, about chi/ki, breathing etc.  Amazing stuff.  I can go to super calm in seconds just by refocusing my thoughts and stepping back from a situation, it's helped me a lot over the years.  

My Mum is way reactive (Hunter O+), bit like a volcano at times lol, love her to bits though.   Dad (Gather O+) has a longer fuse, but when it goes, boy it really goes.  They're a comical pair.

Yes, we should ask for a new photo..with the six showing like Shaun..He's shy, I doubt it though...lol

You're only 14 pounds overweight and she spoke to you like that? crikey.

You're lucky you had the opportunity to learn meditation. I taught myself, then I learned TM when my mother passed away 3 years ago so it kept me off antidepressants at the time..not that I take any now...just vitamins. My mother was a Warrior in a small package..lol. Italian, short, temper...I think she might have been a teacher. She was too short to be a Warrior..she was 5'1"

Was I right about the leg magic? ..OW!

That would put me at the top range of the BMI for 'normal', as they seem so obsessed with measuring every that way, I hate it, it doesn't take into account your build or anything.   My ex is 6ft 3in tall and 14 stone, slim and muscled, they say on the BMI he is obese, I mean what's that about?    The only way he can carry any fat is to put some oil in a jar and take it with him lol.

Health 'professionals' over here do seem to have a bit of an attitude along the lines of 'do as I say, not as I do' lol.   My own GP, a lovely chap, is a good three stone overweight.   Not exactly encouraging ha ha.

So where in England are you from?  I'm a half breed, Edinburgh born, Scots Mum and English Dad.
