How low is low? and are you symptomatic?

It was 68/ 107 at last professional check up. Not sure if the feelings of fatigue are related to it, but more than likely, I am especially tired in the morning after I have been asleep but when i get up and start moving i am better. I have terrible visible veins which ache & sometimes my feet go blue briefly, wonder if that is why?

What is your weight like? Do you have any sense of anemia?

Yes, I have been anemic all my adult life, i do take iron and vit D everyday.  I am 60kg & 165cm, so not my ideal weight so I am working on it. I am worried my blood is too thick to move & will slow down and stop, my uncle had a stroke at 58 last week, he's recovered but may be the first of many...

Digestion has always been slow & not quite right  I love olive oil, fish, nuts& seeds and have at least one serve of each per day so I think I get enough of the Omegas??  I have started drinking one glass every day or so of red wine as I heard someone mention here that it helps thin the blood but maybe I need something else? I do some sort of exercise everyday and try to have a sauna a few times a week. I have got five or six supps but was aimed at gut health, maybe there is another which helps thin the blood or support veins??

Do you eat much soy? Drink coffee? Your digestion should not be slow.

What and how much carbohydrates (simple and complex) do you eat?

What type of exercise?

How does the sauna make you feel?

So you know what you are describing sounds like insulin resistance, so I am trying to understand where it may be coming from.

Oh no, that is something i don't want!!!!  I only stick to my diamonds, even neutrals i treat as avoids most if the time. I love pilates, yoga, tai chi, cycling, weights, walking etc, i love being busy but i sit for work and study now more than ever so that could be slowing down the movement if blood among other things???  I love the sauna, i wouldn't survive the Melbourne winters without it, i don't turn it high and it is a far-infra red one as i don't like steamy heat, i usually fall asleep i feel so relaxed in it.
Yes i do drink coffee, is that not a good thing?  I do have a bit of soy but i put on weight when i eat it..The carbs i get are mostly from fruit and veg, some spelt for breakfast and a bit of chocolate. (don't tell me the choc has to go.....

Well... all very interesting information. Soy really makes you gain weight? Sweating makes you get through it all?

What taste testing strips did you try?

Soy makes me bloated and uncomfortable (i love it though) so i feel like i have put on weight as my clothes feel tighter, if i just eat raw/steamed vegetables and fruit mostly, i feel slimmer!
The warmth of the infrared seems to get right in deep, the feeling lasts a few hours, I don't have it turned up really high as i only like a light sweat, get stressed if i get too hot or too cold.
I bought taster strips from a local high school science supplier, I know they work as two of the family were very repulsed by them, the taste lasting for a long time after, the other two of us didn't taste much at all.
I just remembered I had a glucose test only a little while ago & it was fine so I don't think it could be that causing my vein/blood pressure issues, might book in to see my naturopath about herbs for vein treatment & supplements.

I am a little impressed at how you cross with some explorer traits.

I can't taste any taster strips except the ones from NAP.

Although I'm a Gatherer, I've got a question about Warriors... Reading the Genotype Diet, it looks like sugar is neutral for Warriors. Is this the case, or was sugar omitted from that page accidentally? I thought for sure sugar would be an AVOID for all.

Neutral... but to someone that needs to watch their carbohydrate intake it would include sugar.

Nonnie it is no no. Also warriors that have dwindled down bowels and gut flora issues it is probably best to avoid for awhile.

Thanks, Des.

Nice to know that someone can indulge in sugar a bit, even if it isn't me!

Serenity, I have exactly the same feeling as you after I eat soy, with my clothes feeling tighter, I can't bear the feeling and feel it mainly on my thighs! I went travelling and i mainly ate and drank oats and soy milk- drinking a cup a day and a bowl of oats a day, for some reason. when i came back from travelling i had gained 3 stone and i have always been an ectomorph who was able to eat cakes and sweets without gaining much weight! as soon as i stopped eating oats and drinking soy i went back to my normal weight within a few months. i was so baffeld by the btd when it said that oat and soy were beneficial for me so before i knew my blood type (a +) i assumed i must be an o blood type . i just know soy and oats are a real problem for me even wheat doesnt make me blow up the way soy and oats do. anyway i am now on swami an explorer, not a warrior that may explain a few things , however oats and soy are still neutral not beneficial or avoid but i know i have to avoid them.

Do you gain muscle or fat with soy is another question.

You could get SWAMI and more tests done, perhaps your genotype would change. I guess it depends on how you feel about your health, how you look.

Today I was being creative :
For breakfast I had an apple/Grapes shake using Kefir and a cup of black tea.
For lunch
I had my made spread of cottage cheese and Anchovy on one whole wheat toast and another toast with peanut butter.
For dinner
_ Sockeye Salmon baked in olive oil, sea salt, garlic, green onion, cilantro, and parsley.
- Barley cooked with onions, olive oil and parsley
- Green string bean salad with garlic, parsley, and olive oil.

Cleo, were you a non secretor, would your GT change?

I am not sure I understand the secretor thing all I know is that I am a Warrior. I do not know why they do not post the list of foods that are neutral here. I would like to propose for Dr. D'Adamo to post all the food lists and the neutral foods and have people pay a fee to down load. It will save us from carrying the entire book when we go grocery shopping. I learned that chocolate is a supper food but how can that be when it is full of sugar?

The cocoa doesn't not have to have sugar in it.

The chocolate rating is for cocoa powder.  This is without sugar or milk added.
