Not sure about how it affects allergies, but drink a cup of green tea a day.  It has properties that help prevent cancer and heart disease.  It is a wonder drink for us A's.  Ditto on the red wine.

Yes, love green tea, I have 3 or 4 cups in winter to warm me up.  Have had a glass of organic red wine just before bed and I think it helps me sleep, I have to keep thinking it is doing good for thinning my blood to prevent heart disease because I really don't like the taste (if it wasn't a diamond food I wouldn't bother).  I have ordered some Yerba mate (it is hard to get here) so hope to try it out even though it is only a neutral for me, but I much prefer teas.

The one thing that has made my seasonal allergies almost non existant is raw unpasturized locally produced honey. I've eaten it all my life and I was tested as having severe ragweed allergy. I don't even sneeze in the Fall.

It seems that some of the Superfoods on my Swami list have a temporary negative reaction in the 'breaking out department'.

Not at all that they break me out terribly, but I do notice that shortly after consuming for instance red wine or ghee (both diamonds on my list) my skin starts feeling a little itchy and I just can feel some little 'spots' are being promoted to grow. I have tried all kinds of food combining combinations and there the solution doesn't seem to lie. It just feels like these foods (red wine and ghee) can't be handled properly by my stomach (resulting in a relatively negative initial reaction), but once they get into my intestines they do seem to help promoting overall health and feeling good.

I seem to get this reaction from all dairy and alcohol products by the way, and consequently avoid most of these products. Yet since red wine and ghee are marked as diamond superfoods I do incorporate them knowingly into my diet.

Anyone else got this experience with these (or other) beneficial foods?
Also, do you think this might be a sign these supposedly diamond superfoods are not as 'diamond' for me as Swami argues?

Damon sometimes something is dying ( bacteria) off and it makes us feel funny.

Might want to try some blood type specific probiotics for you gut health.

Hi

Any suggestions for bar-b-que food for Warriors, are coming into summer in New Zealand and feeling a bit of a lack of confidence in this area. It is quite the thing to do in this country in summer.

Yes you are right, maybe I could experiment with some tofu patties.  Anyone got any good recipes for those.

I BBQ turkey (parts or burgers), fish (steaks, fillets, whole), kabobs (vegetables mixed with meat or fish chunks...  I haven't attempted to make veggie or bean burgers, yet.

I have heard about people BBQing portabello mushrooms as the main course.

There are lots of veggies that are delicious on the grill: whole mushrooms, broccoli, onion, zuchini, spring onions, marinated "extra firm" tofu steaks, root veggies like carrots, rutabaga, turnips, etc.; the list goes on and on!

What is driving me nuts is that there is no Warrior women here my age that I can talk to and compare notes! It's so annoying.     Every female Warrior here is young and still not in M yet. I am the lab rat...and nothing is working to lose weight.

I'm surprised that you are the oldest (female) Warrior on the boards, Mayflowers. That can't be right.  

I'm not in Menopause yet, but I'm very close (I know, I know, it's not the same ).

How have you been doing with the gluten-free eating?

Jenny is older, and I understand the weight thing. I just am so unsure about Dr. D's work on warriors... I can could not give a stronger vote to the odd duck totally out of place in society as we know it today. I know teachers that do stupid stuff all day long and even benefit a lot from much of it. Yet I only know one warrior who is an ectomorph, that actually is high functioning. I know of one woman warrior (pretty sure) who craves meat and does not gain weight. All the rest everything is battle, and there is nothing impressive about any part of them, they are just out of place and fight weight issues (or lose them).

I would not eat anything cooked over a fire if you are looking for optimum health, but that is a personal preference.

Personally, I'm doing very well on the Warrior plan. I've reached and maintained my goal weight, am healthy (just got the a-okay from all the tests done that the allopathic doctors recommended), and have great energy.

Well hello Serenity. I see you're new. Nice to meet you. I've been here since 2008, trying to apply the Warrior diet with little or no success in weight loss and no one my age to compare notes to. I have better health and functioning but I've gained a lot of weight and basically no other Warrior women, my age are posting.  Do you plan to keep posting? I'd like to see how other Warrior women are doing in menopause.  The only negative part is that I'm not losing weight. I exercise as well. I'm trying to get around the hormonal kaos that's preventing weight loss at this time.   The only other member close to my age in all this time is Jenny from Australia but she rarely posts, and not in this (my) thread on Warrior support.

Dr. D told me I'd have trouble losing because of menopause. I have to lose weight. I have hip replacements that I'm not supposed to have a lot of weight on. Very frustrating. Eating vegetarian kept me at 137 until I went into Menopause.  Now I found out I'm gluten intolerant. So I've just gotten off gluten last week.

Yes.. except for Jenny but she rarely posts.    I'm actually good not being on gluten, but I'm more hungry! I bought some gluten free Van's natural waffles. Not bad. I just can't eat gluten free things because they are so high glycemic.  I've noticed a lot of things since I'm off gluten like better concentration, focus, I can type faster, no brain fog, better attitude, not depressed, more energy, rash is clearing up, better balance (physical balance like not tipping over) I need way less supplements now. Also, better motivation and more interest.. A lot of good things since I've been off gluten!

Yay Mayflowers! My thought is rather than buying gf products, learn to make your own, so you know what's in them. Just my opinion.

You should come by the water kefir thread...your inquiry inspired me to try it, and I'm so glad I did!

I am insulted by acclimating what I posted into one word.

Warriors that follow Dr. D's recommendations usually are not sick or anything, anymore, but no weight control? Kind of a problem. Historically it makes no sense because they would of died off with debilitating issues for the times they lived. Given that I see warriors as being the most unlike any other GenoType, it just seems that there must be more pieces to the puzzle. Everything from our food habits to our culture seems to fulfill a lot more for other GenoTypes and leaves most warriors out of place by comparison. I just think maybe something about the past could provide some insight since warriors are around for a reason. (Teachers come in second with food in society, everyone else can almost always just exercise off most their issues depending on how sensitive they are to wheat)

I am sure menopause does not help anything, but even so you are not the only warrior with issues.

I do make my own things when I have time. I work full time, have a house to clean, two messy sons and I'm going to school.. hard enoug to find time for exercise let alone making my own waffles. I'm not a waffle lover.. I had a waffle iron and hardly used it. I just bought these because I was desparate for some kind of breakfast food. Plus as I mentioned, I can't eat those gluten free products..they make me gain weight over night! Especially in the summer, I don't feel like cooking. Now that Autumn is coming.. (my favorite time of the year) I get the urge to cook!     I feel so much better off gluten..  
Candy apples anyone?

Here's a question: Julia Child was a Warrior. She was a self proclaimed 'carnivore' She lived to 92 I believe. I'm not understanding this..if you looked at her cookbooks she ate everything from the tail to the brains of an animal! Beef, Pork, fish.. I don't get it.
