are there any nomads, especially bs who have pcos? I'm having a bit of trouble avoiding bread here. and some of the grains I've tried on GTD - oat bran - can only be tolerated in very small amounts are it all goes to my head, like being drunk on eating grains - almost - not quite but close. Also, caffeine as in black tea - yes or no? I would deeply appreciate some help on increasing the energy - I know I have to decrease my exercise load - problably  just stretching for now. but would appreciate advice from others with pcos/pcod.

My guess would be that B gatherers have more trouble.
At least my sister does ( she is B sec - very likely G)
I think that when you have health issues you should avoid stuff that makes you suffer - even when it is legal on the diet.

Have you tried that flax bread recipe that is floating around the board?  The low carb one?  

Also, have you tried quinoa?  I find quinoa in a different league in terms of grains, does not seem to make people feel the same way as other grains (perhaps because of the higher protein content) but still gives grainy satisfaction.

which system are you following?
you could try low glycemic for a while, perhaps following the advice given in the diabetes book of the health series....
you need to personalize your system according to your issues, until your body resets.

As a Nomad, you should not be drinking black tea.  Try one big mug of green tea in the morning instead.  Even with green tea, too much caffeine will turn on you.

The Genotype diet for Nomads is geared toward increasing energy, since fatigue is one of our major health issues.  It has to do with Nitric Acid production in our bodies.  This is certainly my biggest challenge at this point in my life, and the genotype diet has been the first thing that is actually helping.  

I personally do well on Millet, so if you haven't tried that one, give it a shot.  Rice can be tricky if you have blood sugar problems.

Let me not pass you by in quest
of some rare and perfect tomorrow.

I can attest to this.  Corn is the #1 worst thing for me to eat.  I love rice, but it (especially white rice) upsets my blood sugar.  Rolled oats also affects my blood sugar somewhat, and oat bran even less.  But quinoa--it makes me feel good like no other grain I've ever eaten.  I can eat it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, with other foods or alone, without feeling any spike in my blood sugar.

Is your blood sugar a problem?  If compliant bread goes to your head, it sounds like it is.  I have had blood sugar problems all my life, and the Nomad diet seemed to aggravate them.  I just started on the Gatherer diet, and I'm feeling some improvements already.

So . . . with problems like mine, would you suggest the gatherer diet instead w/o b-nonnie avoids? what else? how does a b use the gatherer diet?

So I "gather" that you do have blood sugar issues?

That's what I'M doing, but I couldn't say for sure if it's for you.  What are your measurements?  I have a longer torso and longer upper legs.  I'm not sure about my fingers because they are so close, and that's why I had this confusion about my GT.  If are a B and you have a longer index finger on one hand and a longer ring finger on the other, I think you are most likely a Gatherer (I don't have the book in front of me).

Being a B, you don't have to use the Gatherer diet any differently than you would if you were an O.
