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.

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.

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.

I eat a pretty high-fat diet, compared to most people.  But it's olive oil and ghee and nuts.  A friend was recently talking about all her children's health issues and I suggested fish oils.  She said, "But that's fat!"  I explained why our brains need fat, especially children, and she said she'd never heard that before.  I told her I eat a fairly high-fat diet, but then I told her what kinds of fat (and almost 0 animal fat, other than ghee).  She couldn't believe we were all so slim!

I'm down to 128 lbs!  Hurray!  I was 180 (9 mos. pregnant) a year ago.  As long as I go easy on dairy and eat very little grains at all (like twice a week at most), I continue to lose.  I feel pretty good about myself, having three children, the youngest only a year old, and here I am weighing what I weighed when we got married.  Thanks, Dr. D.  On this diet I can't have the excuse that my baby made me gain weight and I just couldn't lose it.  And I'm "thrifty" (supposedly)!  I guess I've called the less-thrifty genes up to the microphone and they're speaking loud and clear now at the town meeting.  I still have some areas I'd like to tone up, of course, but now isn't my time in life to be able to work out much.  I bet the longer I'm on this diet and the longer I continue to avoid most of my black dots, the less I'll actually have to work on specific spots.


Thanks for your testimony, Dr. D.  I found myself saying, "Yes..."  "Yes..." as I read your list (except for the ab muscles---hahaha.  I have a one-pack).  I respond better to situations also, and that's with no A "exercise"!

I walk from one end of the house to the other, dozens of times a day, carrying children, toys (not so much anymore because I put 98% of them in the basement!!!!!), laundry, etc.  I do some gardening.  The other evening I told my husband I had to have some silence.  So he put the children to bed while I walked around the block four times.  It was nice, to put it mildly.  But I don't do anything like yoga.  I'd like to, but there's no way under heaven I'm going to get more than 5 minutes of uninterrupted time.  When the baby's older and my husband learns how to give his full attention to babysitting (he's getting there), I can feel comfortable with leaving them and going and taking a tai chi class.  That's my goal.

Uh, Miss Chloe..did you post a pic..yet??

I always liked Dr. Atkins..he was the first MD to stand up against the AMA..and took all those years of bashing. Dr. D can be proud..
His last book, Anti Aging was excellent..I had no idea that Dr. Atkins knew so much about supplements and treating disease with them.. That's how I cured my sinus infections..by reading his book. I was deficient in vitamin A and Dr. Atkins wrote that people with chronic sinus infections are usually deficient in vitamin A. I have since been able to lower the dosage ...back to a normal amount..

Quoted from Andrea AWsec
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?

Like he or she just might have been there and knows the struggle, how it feels, and the importance of losing weight for health reasons.  Judge not lest ye be judged.  Perhaps that person has lost weight only to gain it back.  If the person is a Gatherer, do you know how EASY it is to gain and how HARD it is to lose and keep it off?  In short, just because someone is overweight, it doesn't mean they don't know what they are talking about, and haven't walked the walk and continue to walk it.  It just means that weight is a great challenge for them and a lifelong one.  People who don't have that challenge have no idea what it is all about.  Since s/he (that doctor) is overweight, I'd feel maybe s/he does understand.  That is what I would feel, since you ask.

Quoted from Lola
Leanne,
add your GT to your signature for better understanding of your posts.

Lola,
How do I do this?  I went into my avatar settings but choosing my GTD was not available.  What am I doing wrong?  I'm not really savvy with message boards.
I'm a Hunter, by-the-way, and to give an update...
I've been without spelt now for about 5 days.  The one major difference is that my right shoulder muscle becomes cramped very easily.  Almost to the point of a stiff neck, not as painful but just as annoying. If I sit at the computer for any length of time it cramps up, or if I hold my two month old while walking around it hurts.
However, I've been painless in my shoulder for about 3 days now.  I do know that if I get a hold of wheat, whole wheat, I'll have a stiff neck for many days.  
So spelt and wheat are in the same family it's just that spelt has a slightly milder reaction in my body.  I always thought that too much spelt put on the pounds I never realized that it might be causing little issues.  
Like some others who are doing the GTD I've had a difficult time with deciding to give it a whirl.  I've been so loyal to BTD for so long that I almost felt like a traitor.  However, I'm beginning to think that we're just tweaking what we've already learned.
I told my sister tonight that I hate it when people poo-poo on something they've never tried.  So I'm trying to take my own advice!
Leanne!

Quoted from Ribbit
I walk from one end of the house to the other, dozens of times a day, carrying children, toys (not so much anymore because I put 98% of them in the basement!!!!!), laundry, etc.  I do some gardening.  The other evening I told my husband I had to have some silence.  So he put the children to bed while I walked around the block four times.  It was nice, to put it mildly.  But I don't do anything like yoga.  I'd like to, but there's no way under heaven I'm going to get more than 5 minutes of uninterrupted time.  When the baby's older and my husband learns how to give his full attention to babysitting (he's getting there), I can feel comfortable with leaving them and going and taking a tai chi class.  That's my goal.


Ribbit, gardening is great exercise.

I'm now cycling 4-8 miles daily. I live in a very hilly area though, so it means more.

Funny thing is that people talk about that they do it here, and then this forum has tumble weeds blowing through it..(sound of hawk screeching overhead)

It's not so hard cycling in hilly country if you have an expensive bike with 26 speeds on it.

I notice you didn't answer my question, Mayflowers!    , the strength in my arm muscles is far beyond what my frame is able to handle. I have never seen another woman any stronger than I am at my age. What makes me happy about this is that I have seen the day that I couldn't even polish a piece of furniture I was so weak in my arms.

YES, we tend to "fight" for the things that have brought our health back to life!!!!!

Wow, you're super-strong! This coworker of mine can lift 60 lb dumb bells she's like 5'1". (an O ) So, did you set out to get strong in your arms deliberately or just happened? I'm no slouch either, but kick boxing might be a challenge for me with my hips..lol.

Jaynee0 and Mayflowers: What began to bring my strength back (I was always very strong in earlier years) was getting rid of systemic Candida overgrowth. That stuff has an extremely detrimental effect on muscle strength. Anyway, I have mentioned before on the board about the projects I undertake around here that include climbing ladders, hand sawing, tearing out and replacing wall coverings, (not talking about wallpaper!) etc., etc.... plus a huge amount of yard work. (I refuse to buy a riding lawn mower! Yet!) The yard is one acre and there is a considerable difference in terrain from one side to the other.

I don't go at anything half-heartedly. For instance, a good work out is sawing down a thirty foot camellia "bush" with umpteen "trunks" that has gotten out of hand! Or spreading a huge dump truck load of wood chips all in one day! Woooweeee!!! That will take off two or three pounds!

Of course, the BTD gave me a huge boost around ten years ago, and things have been getting better ever since. But, as I said, my strength exceeds what my frame can handle so I have to be careful about not overdoing it. So, now, I will go and put a finish coat on the woodwork I have been refinishing!

You go girl.. I'm having problems with fatigue now... you know what that's from.. Do you still work or are you retired? I need more upper body work..I went to go out on the porch to use my total gym yesterday and I almost passed out from the heat! I can't imagine Dr. D cycling in this weather..we're talking heat stroke!  
I need the upper body strength so I can get the yard work caught up...

That's me too.  If I'm going to do something, I'm going to put my whole heart into it.  I'm very project-oriented.  I struggle with the daily tasks that face me.  I burn out and tire of the same-ness.  I like projects.  For example, the other day I decided I was going to rearrange my kitchen cabinets.  When we moved here nearly three years ago, I just put stuff where I could and figured I'd rearrange when I had more time.  Well, I had a 2 1/2 y.o. and a 6 m.o. at the time and never got around to it.  Now I can plop the older two in front of the Sound of Music, give the baby a pot and a couple of spoons, and I can rearrange things to my heart's content.  I like the way my kitchen is organized now.  I can reach things easier.  Too bad it took me so long to get around to it.  Now I'm rearranging the girls' room.  I started painting a mural on the wall a few months ago but got distracted (the story of my life), but at least the furniture is in a better arrangement.  The baby will be ready to go into a toddler bed in the next 6-9 months, and then I'll move Ethan into a twin-sized bed if he'll give up his toddler bed.

Anyway, when I decide to tackle something, I find that I'm really not so weak after all, and I have a surprising amount of umph.  I believe having mean older brothers growing up stifled my Warriorness and it never fully developed until recently.  The more time goes by I fit more and more the description that Dr. D gave.  Although I'm still not choleric.

I seem to have the problem lately of writing down a project that I want to do and then..on the way to the project that I had planned for the day, I see another project en route and do that one instead. What's that all about? I do feel more energetic since the GTD though. I'd like a good 6 months to test it.

So do you any of you "seasoned" mothers have some good advice on when to exercise for us extremely busy mom's?  Being an O I dearly love exercise and feel so much better when I do but there seems to be so little time to do it.  
By the time 9:00pm arrives, you flop in bed exhausted and kick yourself that you didn't walk the treadmill that day.  Any ideas?

I have absolutely had to limit myself to no more than two projects at a time. The main thing being that it creates too much of a mess. Tools and stuff everywhere drives me nuts! I have had to stop nearly everything the last ten days or so to work on this computer. Today I need to go buy a new printer if I can get away from here in time. I will be so glad to get this aggravation behind me. This "project" was definitely NOT planned!

Indeed.

Leanne, my O mother waited till we (5 of us) got old enough to walk with her, or during the summer we walked in the evenings when my dad was home to help push strollers, etc.  Before that she didn't have time to think about exercise.  What I've done a couple of times lately and hope to do on a more regular basis is walk in the evenings after dinner.  We all go around the block as a family, which takes forever, then my husband takes them in, gives them snacks if they need it, brushes their teeth, puts their pj's on, and reads them stories.  That gives me time to walk a couple more times around the block, which is often just the wind-down time I need to be able to smile again on one of those days.

I hate using TV or movies as a babysitter, but sometimes you  just gotta.  I use them when I have to to get supper cooked, for example.  Usually I can get them occupied doing something else, but if they've been at each other all day sometimes I'll put on a little something for them to watch.

I know a family with 7 children.  The mom takes all the children outside, puts the baby in a carrier or playpen and everybody just plays while she walks around and around and around the yard (they have a pretty big yard).

  ! that was funny.

I managed to stay home the first 5 years of my older son's life. I had a play pen that I parked in front of the tv (Barney) he loved is as long as I was right there..I'd then peddle the exercise bike while he played..If I wanted to do something else I'd wait until his nap time and work out to a video.. I like videos for working out. Don't have to leave your house.

If you work..you can get a walk in at lunch time..Which is what I was doing a lot.

Oh-my-goodness!  That was hilarious!  

Ribbit, thanks.  I think that I feel guilty when I don't walk the two miles that's recommended for an O.  That's at least a half an hour.  However, I suppose that I should just do what I can and quit hitting myself over the head for what I can't.

Hi Leanne,

I just saw this thread.

One trick is mornings. Before anything else-ANYTHING-. 30 min before everyone gets up DO SOMETHING-any exercise.  

Then at night....when you pull your leg back to kick yourself again... you won't be able to.  

30 min X 7 days a week= 3.5 hours per week that you didn't have before.

Thanks.  I think the majority of my problem right now is that I've just had a baby.  I tried walking the treadmill a couple of weeks ago but it still hurt.  
This past week I've done well.  I was able to lift laundry baskets without suffering afterwards.  
Next week we'll be at kids' camp so I'll try to start walking on the following week.  
I was walking a mile per day before I got pregnant.  I had gained some weight and was trying to get it off.  Anyhow, I won't go in to it all but will try to get back into it the week after next.

Rest, Leanne.  Don't push yourself too hard yet.  If it hurts your body is telling you that you need more time off.  Wait till it doesn't hurt your insides at all, then you can start walking again.  But don't worry about extra weight yet---you know all this already---just nurse a lot and eat right and that baby will suck it all off!
