I have been living the Blood Type A diet for close to 2 years, and switched to Geno Type diet for Teacher almost a year ago.
Whenever I eat turkey or salmon, both good for Teachers, I get a prickly feeling in my hands and forearms 20 minutes after eating.  Originally, I thought it must be the steroids or hormones added to the meats, but just had some wild turkey given to my husband by a hunter friend and had the same symptom.
Anyone else had this?
When I did the Geno test, I was borderline between Teacher and Warrior and am now wondering if I am Warrior since both turkey and Atlantic salmon are on the avoid list for Warriors.


I want to be an outrageous old woman who never gets called an old lady.  I want to get leaner & meaner, sharp edged & earth colored, till I fade away from pure joy.

Turkey is neutral for Warriors and beneficial for Teachers.  

The Atlantic Salmon is farmed which makes it not an ideal food. Fish that has been previously frozen contains polyamines so it would not be a good idea to eat it.

Canned Wild Alaskan RED salmon is a good alternative.

We each have our  own individual food intolerances yours may be turkey and salmon.

Yes, Alaskan and Sockeye salmon is beneficial.. though I'm not a fish lover, unless it's battered and fried and slathered in tarter sauce..
yummo. I didn't do well on chicken which is a BTD neutral.

I'd avoid them for a while, eat all your other beneficials, then try one again.  See if your body heals.

Yes, my sister and I both get a tingly feeling after eating the white meat of chicken and turkey, usually the breast portion. We're both O's.  I think I also noticed a reaction from salmon, but I rarely eat that because I haven't found a recipe that I like, yet.

While I can eat turkey, I find I don't need it very often...  About one meal per month is all I tend to want it...

I think it's a niacin flush type reaction.  Those foods are sources of niacin.

Okay, then here's an experiment.  Try nutritional yeast.  It's high in B vitamins.  See if you get a flush from it.

I do fine with turkey and salmon, but I don't eat much at a time.  For example a can of sockeye salmon lasts me 4 meals.  And a pound of ground organic turkey is good for 8-10...I cook it with lots of veggies so the turkey per meal is low.  That is the way my body handles animal protein the best. I freeze a lot of little single meal sized buckets, which are so nice to have during the work week!

Thanks for the reminder, Ribbit.  Yes, I reacted to that also.

If I eat too much turkey, my weight goes up..not as fast as chicken, but it goes up. I can get away with a little fish.
I'm leaning toward what Heidi is..more of a vegetarian.

I find that too much animal protein at a time completely overwhelms my system.  If I eat a little bit, it can digest it and get the goodness out.  More than that, and I can't digest it at all.

Actually I have found that with food in general also, although vegetables are a bit more forgiving.  But I can't believe how much better I feel when I eat less at a time.  I'd have never in a million years thought that it would feel THIS much better.  I feel like my body (specifically my guts, but everything else feels better too) is saying 'thank heavens, she FINALLY figured it out!'  *lol*

Hi diana,
just noticed your age! Have you done that test, or is there a private meaning hanging in there, or what?
Very nice.

Hi Jenny   Yeah, I'll have to complain to the webmaster.. You can't just have the birthday, which I was trying to do. You must put a birthdate. Some of us are in denial..Some of us are not..like Dr. D  .  I mentioned him because we're the same age. I just don't like looking at my age all the time..makes me feel old..er.  So now I'm 108.  Maybe I'll change it to 30.. Hey you're as young as you feel, right?
