I would have thought if a diet isn't right for you, you wouldn't have good results?? Most people were not having any results on the wrong diet.  

There are several possible reasons for this...

First, and the one I give the most credence to, is that I muscle response test everything I'm considering for ingestion.  If the body doesn't want it now, I don't eat it now...  I will look around for a different food that is acceptable or desired...  This makes meal planning difficult, but I as long as I have the food in the house, I can grab and go with relatively short notice...

Second, even though the label says Nomad now, the Beneficial and Neutral foods lists are very similar to the Warrior diet, with the exception of the red meat and poultry selections...  The biggest difference I've acted on so far is to add beef liver into my diet.  A secondary difference is to focus on adding more vegetables.

Third, I'm not fighting a scale...  My issues are all related to toxins and nerve issues, which are much harder to measure quantitatively.  I know that things are getting better when comparing this year to last, but yesterday to today or last month to this month is really hard to verify improvement.

The biggest dietary difference for me was going from SAD to BTD.  GTD and SWAMI have been minor adjustments that focus more intensely on the issues specific to me...

Very wise, Joe.  It's your own, home-grown SWAMI.  Changeable at a moment's notice.

I think we all do that with our diet programs.  Ultimately, we are the ones who know how a food affects us.  Dr. D points us in the right direction and we can take it from there.

Good Luck Joe...My son is a Nomad and he doesn't have any weight issues. As a matter of fact, he's underweight and very picky about food. Today he actually ate some raw broccoli.. AND cole slaw!
vegetable overload...lol..He's also always on the go and or traveling which is saying a lot for a fixed earth Capricorn.

I know about vegetable overload...  My SWAMI says 6 cups per day...  I have been getting close for about 2 weeks now...  Between the vegetables and liver, I am starting to feel better...

Many chiropractors carry BioFreeze.  It'll help that strain.  Juiced raw pineapple centers contain lots of bromelain, which blocks the body's inflammatory response.

Another thing that's very nice is a rice sock.  Take an old sock (without holes, if you can find one ) and fill it with rice.  Microwave it (don't worry, you're not eating it) for a minute or so, and then place on the sore spot.  It's amazing.

Is that the same thing as a heating pad? I usually use a heating pad. This time what OMG, really helped was a massage. We have these oriental massage people at the mall and they charge $15 for 15 mins. You sit there in the massage chair in front of everyone walking by   but once she/he starts you don't even care. It was amazingly relaxing and really helped the knot loosen up. I'm going back for another one tomorrow or Sunday. I think that should do it.

Good! I guess using a moist heating pad would do the same thing.

Since there's another thread on sucralose going on, I'd thought I'd ask Warriors if they use Splenda or not and what affects they have.  I try to use Truvia which is erythritol and stevia.. or stevia.
Splenda tends to give me a stomach ache if I use too much of it.

As you know (or maybe not), I'm not using any sweeteners other than dried fruit...at the moment. But even before that, I would choose sugar over artificial sweeteners. I don't like the taste of stevia or Splenda...or is it the aftertaste?

You do know what it's like the week before...PMS...intense sugar cravings...right? Well that's how M has been for me, mostly 24/7.  Constant sugar cravings. Truvia helps.. I'm trying to avoid sucralose. The only other time I was like this was when I was pregnant with my sons.

Well, thanks.. but also I think because my father (warrior) had senile diabetes.. I'm having insulin resistance kick in now..so I have to be careful not to get Type II.  My father controlled it with oral insulin, but he was not good with his diet and didn't exercise at all.

You know when you go to the doctor and have good test results it just makes you want to be even more compliant on the diet!     I'm going to get my D levels done if I can remember to go.

So do we have any knew tips for Warriors today?  Where's Ribbit?

I don't have a problem with wheat. Wheat is a beneficial on my SWAMI whole wheat, bran, germ. The longer I follow the diet, the more sensitive I become to avoids. I never went off the diet totally for a long period. I would cheat sometimes and have an avoid or two but that's about it. It could take you as long to feel better as long as you were off the diet. Another 3 months ..but everyone is different. Spelt is a good substitute.
