A few months ago the concept of the Big Seven came up in a thread.  At least I think it was called the big seven.  I think it was Lloyd that used the term.  In the Blood Type Diet they are the foods Dr D specified as no-nos.  They were shown in the book in the text just before the listing of Beneficial and Avoid foods for each blood type.

The question is, is there something similar for Genotypes?     I've been on the Genotype diet since the book came out and I'm still not sure if I'm an Explorer or a Warrior.    The Warrior diet is definitely the easier of the two.  Since I'm not sure if I'm Explorer or Warrior I can avoid the big seven for both to be sure I'm avoiding the worst of the two.

Kind of like the "red flags" mentioned in LR4YT?  I also would like to know if there are GT "red flags".  It would be helpful for people just getting started.

How do you feel on the Warrior diet? Are there big changes for the better. Have you been on it long?
If you really are unsure of GT, avoid the worst things on both diets.

shazamda,

If you follow the advanced genotyping charts in the back of the book, they tell you precisely what you are... The only problem then becomes if you've measured yourself correctly, and if you agree with the genotype it gives you.

Personally, I think mine is right on.  Granted, I don't normally have a placid and peaceful personality, but I think that I do crave that way of life... it's just that my life has been filled with constant upheaval, a huge lack of family knowledge, and a good bit of familial derangement thrown into the mix, just for "spice".

Anyhow, I'm a "Teacher", and I pretty much agree with that.

I was on the blood type diet for months before the genotype diet; I had some improvements on the blood type diet.  I was an A+ non-secretor.  I did the measurements for the Genotype Diet as soon as the book came out.  I canít count the number of times I did the measurements. The problem is the leg measurements, especially the upper leg measurement.  I know if the upper and lower legs are the same length you should go with the lower but the measurements may vary a half inch longer or shorter.

I tried the explorer first; it was so difficult I switched to warrior.  I really enjoyed the warrior diet because it has lots of easily available foods.  But I had no real improvement except I felt better because I didnít have to struggle to find food on short notice or while out in the world.  After three or four months I started to wonder if I was having a problem with some of the foods so I switched to the explorer.  The explorer diet is so difficult for me it feels like a burden.  So itís hard to tell if Iím feeling worse because of the food or because of the inconvenience.  Maybe that sounds silly but thatís the way it is for me.

What's S S & L

I'm guessing that for gatherers the first 3 are:

Wheat, Corn & Sugar, due to their effect on insulin/glucose regulation.  High fructose/sugar and high fat toxins are bad too, though right now I haven't thought of any other specifics besides wheat, corn and sugar...milkshakes and bacon?

The Explorer diet is very difficult and can be stressful constantly looking for the many strange superfoods. I have never seen catfish for sale around here, or on any restaurant menu, but I'd sure love to try it. I love most all fish which is a limited item for us E's. But anyway it does get easier after awhile when you settle in to just what beneficial foods you can have and yeah you will spend some of your time out searching for bennies.

I would guess that mushrooms are a biggie for a "big seven" no-no list if it exists. Something to do with mould but not sure what kind of reaction it causes. I used to stress out over not having any mushroom choices. I love them and used to eat them regularly without any noticeable effect. Though that doesn't mean there isn't something going on in there. So, I would start with leaving them out if you are undecided about which diet to follow.

Catfish are very common in the states, particularly in the South. Usually they are fairly cheap. There are even special restaurants that primarily serve catfish dishes (most common preparation method is fried)

If not specified catfish are normally farm raised on a diet mostly of corn.

I heard about the big fish market in Seattle, supposed to be one of the largest in the US. I'd go there with a cooler if I thought they'd let me back across the border with them. Will have to check into that. We are planning a trip down that way in October anyway, so maybe...

Have you met Larry C from Crossville, Tn.?  And are you attending the conference that is coming up Oct. 25?  You could get some help there in doing the accurate measurements.  And even if you don't attend the conference, I'll bet you could contact Larry to help you figure out your genotype.
