Ooh, I would not suggest Tempeh as the first try of tofu. It has a distinctive taste, whereas tofu tends to be bland and easily takes on the flavors of whatever you cook it with.

I like to eat extra firm tofu in stir-frys. Silken tofu is good for adding to "creamed" soups or soups that get blenderized.

Hi Guys

Thankyou all for such informative reading. I've just finished reading the GenoType Diet and initially thought I was a Gatherer (until someone helped me and said that Gatherers are not type A's). At that point I got very confused and had another look and thought I was a Teacher or Explorer and then realised that I'd misread the tables. When I went back for a third attempt with the tables in the back of the book it gave me a choice of Warrior or Explorer. Now, I don't know my excretor status but considering that A+ (which is me) who is a secretor is a Warrior and a non secretor is an Explorer (male) and a Warrior (female), I think the choice is simple..... I'm female so either way, I'm a Warrior!!!!! YAY!!!! I'm just glad to have finally been able to work it out...   This thread has been awesome and you guys all ROCK!!!! You all give information and assistance so freely. Thankyou.

I'm doing a degree in Naturopathy and this week (after my online exam), my studies referred me to the BTD. I looked at this years ago and found it too restrictive. However, given the fact that I'm about 65kgs (143.3 pounds) overweight and am getting married in April and want to start a family and get healthy, I need to do something about my weight and health. One thing I did notice, when I was away on holidays with my partner, everytime we ate out, I had fish. I felt so much better for it too but I couldn't figure out why. Now I know. Fish is beneficial and meat, chicken etc is not. I've ordered my SWAMI too just to make sure that I've not mucked up on my Genotype and to refine the foods I can eat. I'll keep coming back to this thread for more info from you all. However, as it's 11.54pm and I have to be up at 5am to start work, I really MUST go to bed. This will be the last late night for me and from tomorrow, I'll be incorporating much more meditation and exercise into my daily routine.

Thanks again everyone

Samantha

PS. Is anyone from Perth Western Australia? That's where I am... Have a good weekend everyone (long weekend if you have one).....

Hey guys, I hope you don't mind me asking a warrior question. I just started and also typed my husband and son. My husband came out to be a warrior, the discription was like reading my husband's bio! right down to the mid 30 spread he is under going right now. But after looking through the warrior diet I am afraid to tell him. My question, how do you tell a meat and potatos working man who raises his own pastured beef, chicken, and turkey that he needs to go to the store and buy fish??? I mean, no meat?? I'm in shock. By the way, I am explorer and my son nomad. How to work us all into a menu plan. oh my! It feels hopeless.

Hi Greyartist,
Hi and welcome!  
So you're positive husband is an A or AB?  Just be sure of his blood type before you freak.  
Yes the Warrior diet is ..sort of Spartan. ..

Warriors can have turkey (which I ate happily until I watched Food, Inc).

As a former farmer and meat and potatoes man, I can sympathize with him...  I do like turkey, although I only eat 1 or two meals of it per week...

I can tell you that I'm happier to be healing some old injuries than having beef, pork, chicken, potatoes or corn!  I had to remake my entire menu, but it is worth it in better health and less frustration about why I continue to eat "healthy" and continue getting sicker - along with the additional 30 to 40 pounds that kept growing...

My dad was a Warrior, meat and potatoes man.. He had gout and high blood pressure and diabetes as he got older..then he died young of a stroke at 67.

Yes he is an AB blood type, he gives blood regularly so he knew his without a test. Turkey?? I went back and checked again and it says no recommended poultry items(audiobook). Is it one of the black dot foods?

Hmm, I sit corrected. I thought all Warriors, regardless of blood type, could have turkey. Now, if he was Swami-ed, perhaps he could have more than turkey...

According to my paper book, turkey would be a Neutral for Warrior.  Yes, because there are no Superfood Poultry items, it says there are none recommended - but since Turkey isn't listed in the "Toxins to Limit or Avoid" list, it is considered Neutral.  

If you got his SWAMI, it may say something different.

Turkey isn't a superfood but it's a neutral for Warriors.  Joe, you're 30-40 lbs overweight now?

From his previous posts, I believe Joe is rather lean and could possibly gain a pound or three.  I believe he was referring to the past.

Not even...  I need to continue to lose some toxin deposits, which are technically fatty cysts, but would like to gain some muscle.  Right now keeping the balance between exercise and detox to stay "functional".

I don't use kefir...  I find that yogurt and cottage cheese fill my dairy needs well...

Once in a great while I'll buy kefir, but I much prefer whole plain yogurt, straight.

I keep it around because I'll dump some into smoothies, but I don't care for the flavor.
