I just bought these because I was desparate for some kind of breakfast food.


If you can have oats, my breakfast of choice these days (quick, too) is quick-cooking steel cut oats (I buy them at TJ's), rice protein powder, oat flour covered dates (any dried fruit will do), cinnamon, and nuts (I use walnut pieces or peanuts). I add one cup of boiling water to 1/3 cup of oats+, then microwave (I know, I know ) for 3 minutes on 50% power (the lower power setting keeps the mixture from boiling over). Sometimes I'll top it off with a spoonful of yogurt.

It's very filling, can be taken on the road and prepared later, and is delicious. I'm still not eating any processed sugar, and I find this sweet enough.


It is not my responsibility to convince anyone of anything.

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.  


Exactly... I am just not getting it.

Hi

Thanks so much for the BBQ suggestions, they are making my mouth water already, especially the marinated mushrooms and grilled pineapple.  With regards to the Warrior menopause thing, was wondering if this is a bit of a mind set for a few years as part of the whole I am over it feelings that seem to come up over this time.  Have observed women at start of menopause thinking these same thoughts and now observe them 10 years later, like a caterpillar that has come out of a cocoon.  they cannot even remember being or having these thoughts of hopelessness that they had 10 years ago.  Even to be honest a bit impatient with the whole menopause thing as though it never even happened to them and it is all a bit of a fallacy.  Maybe just awareness, patience with yourself and being a bit of observer of it all without taking it too personally.  sometimes we think that things are always better for someone else.

Drea, I ate oats every day of my life practically. Oats, oat bran.   I was looking for something to have for my days when I had time to cook. I didn't mention that I'm well aware of all gluten free foods and being gluten free. I was gluten free for almost 2 years before I started the BTD. I know all about it and what I can  and cannot have.  Sorry, I guess I should be giving more information. Hanging around my son too much.

Perhaps because she ate so healthy? Maybe she ate such a varried diet that she didn't have red meat daily? She also ate a lot of fish. If she liked vegetables she might have ate a ton of vegetables and some how balanced it without realizing it.

I had a great uncle that I swear was a Warrior.  He lived into his mid-90's, walked every day of his life, never smoked, never drank, but he ate pretty much what he wanted.  He also had a water filter in his home before that was even on the radar for most people.  He also took vitamins.

Re: Julia Child, perhaps she wasn't even a Warrior, but she certainly appears to be one.  Perhaps, she had such a zest for life and positive attitude, and that overrode any negative aspects of toxic foods she was eating.  She also probably drank red wine nearly every day.  Time certain flew for her, because she was having fun 24/7 as she loved her work immensely.

No, in the Genotype Diet book, Dr. D has her listed as a celebrity Warrior. I don't know how he found out her blood type though.. Maybe she was a patient?    
She also didn't have children to stress the bleep out of her..

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!

Dr. D also listed Marylin Monroe as a Gatherer but she is blood type AB so that is just not true.

Julia Child's body changed a lot over the years so it is hard to say for sure. When she was young she did not look too warrior like. (skinny, way small ribcage) Age and weight disguise things a lot.

What? Maybe that was a typo about Marilyn Monroe? He had a writer, Catherine Wittney write the book. She might have made a mistake.  Julia Child is over 6 feet tall. I was skinny as a kid too. If you look at her when she was older.. it was in her stomach barrel chested, just like Dr. D said Warriors get if we don't exercise. My father and I are like her. Long arms, long legs, short waisted. There is no question that I could be something other than a Warrior. Unless you care to take Dr. D on?

  He could be going by a sculpture of Caesar...and his personality. We know he liked to 'explore' and take over other countries and perhaps by the blood type in that area at that specific period. I know I saw a map showing ancient blood types and how they spread

Well I guess that's something you'll have to figure out.

Anyway, I made an appointment to go to the Clinic and see the fellows (with hopefully Dr. D) and have my diet updated. I haven't had it updated since 2008 and there's been a lot of foods added.

I have SWAMI but let me know if you find out any tips  

I too am having trouble taking off weight but I hope it is because my hormones are trying to figure themselves out.  I do feel better in so many ways.  I find if I leave off the carbs I can loose a little but it is slow...but then again it took me a few years to put it on too

I sure will. I was hoping you could help me out with the hormones..   Oh well. Mind if I ask how much you need to lose?  I need to lose about 35.
Exercise:  Right now I'm walking to get the fresh air and sunshine because that's also important. So I'm walking 30 mins a day. I have to find out if I should increase it to 45 when I go. I'm also lifting weights. 2 - 3 times a week 2,3,5 lbs weights.  I'm taking vitamin D2 because D3 is animal and I'm reacting to it. My levels were very low and I've gotten them up to 40 in the Spring. I'll be getting tested again soon. In the Fall/Winter I do dvd's for cardio. How are your sugar cravings? Mine were off the wall. I just however, gave up gluten again because of a continuing stomach ache after eating, and indigestion. It worked and my stomach is about 95%  better. I also noticed that my sugar cravings are way down since I gave up gluten. My cravings for carbs and sugar are less now. That was unexpected.

My husband is an O- hunter...so to make things a little easier since we started I have gone gluten free as well.  How much do I need to loose...according to some chart probably 80 pounds but to keep my sanity I am looking at 20 pounds at a time    So far I have lost about 5.  I am trying to do better carbs and see if that will help.  I do feel better and am noticing changes for the better.  If I stay away from sugar I do not have hot flashes, YEAH  

Currently I am going to water aerobics 4-5 times a week, but that will change at the end of the month since we are moving.  But I will be staying busy.

One thing I am trying to do is get 8 hours of sleep a night, it really helps.  It is bed time so we will continue this tomorrow. It is great knowing there is a fellow warrior sharing my fight

Hi, So glad there's another Warrior my age here  .  My sister I'm afraid is a Warrior as well because she gained a ton of weight after middle age. I used to think she was an explorer but she was very tall almost 5'10 and had a volitile temper. She loves meat however and refused to follow vegetarian..as a result, her weight went up to 280 lbs and she ended up having a gastric bypass to lose weight. Now she weighs less then me.   but she was a smoker.(definitely not into health) so she got osteoporosis and was pre diabetic. She shrunk down to 5'8" 1/2 now from 5'9" 1/2.  Even if I took her and paid for her to get genotyped, she wouldn't follow the diet, so I'm not even bothering.  I'd be a lot heavier if I was eating red meat.  Since I gave up gluten I think I can get a handle on the sugar now.

My mom (82), sister (60), and I (48 ) are all Warriors.  It can get really animated and heated during our conversations.  We call it our 'therapy'.  My mom and sis follow the GTD, and I'm the only one with a SWAMI.

That is interesting because you are the only person making the accusation that someone thinks I do (even if it is only myself).

If you are referring to Marilyn Monroe's GTD then you must believe Dr. D personally typed her or has withheld the secret that Type AB can be gatherers, and that I - who found some record of blood types of different celebrities -believe that I, myself, can exercise my expert knowledge (self given to myself by you) to criticize Dr. D's guess requiring a decision to go against his own rules in the GenoType Book, SwamiExpress, and SwamiPro.

Winning argument dude...

Basically any advise I give on her is straight out of the information in the books or things posted online by Dr. D. The fact that I think his warrior information is incomplete does not mean I think I know an answer to the equation. If I did I would like to think to myself that I would propose it to him, or publicly exclaim that I potentially unearthed very valuable information.

I also try to avoid the FFOTM (forum flavor of the month) arguments. One that I can think of is the " fructose malabsorption" thing being the problem since I do not believe it is the problem, nor has Dr. D ever stated that it was the distinct cause... what it would appear to be an utter failure on the indican test were you find the intestines are thoroughly in a horrible state of gut flora and the person probably has not been absorbing protein correctly or in high enough amounts. That is a symptom of overall imbalance caused by everything Dr. D does write about. That especially was suspicious to me since claims against not high fructose foods were made. This is also coming from someone that understands how brutal it can be to eat fructose and have strange reactions.

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.  


Sorry to neglect you so much Mayflowers, I am just pre-occupied with work, grandchildren, music, having fun, and looking after myself....
My worst age weight wise was about 62 when I ballooned up and was diagnosed with thyroid deficiency; I got that partly under control with medication, ERFYT and regular gym membership, but I never really came to grips with decent weight loss until I was diagnosed with diabetes 3 years ago...then I was given an ultimatum of lose weight or lose a leg, have a heart attach or go blind...I took all this very seriously, it scared the..out of me, and so I followed the Genotype plan for Warrior much more carefully, and started walking every day. It is a daily challenge to keep weight off, but (apart from my ridiculous new passport photo) I look and feel up to 15 years younger.(sometimes). Being happy is a major part of the process. Stress is horrible.
Take care, lots of people are supporting you.
