Is there any Warrior here who successfully incorporates amaranth into his/her diet??

It is one of the few diamond carbohydrates on my SWAMI that I am able to find locally; consequently I have started incorporating it into my diet. I have been consuming it for about one month now, almost daily. However, if anything, I believe I feel worse because of it.

Googling a bit just teached me that amaranth's glycemic index is incredibly high. I know from personal experience that I do best avoiding high (and even medium) glycemic foods, and I actually thought this was a typical warrior thing. Shouldn't all warriors avoid high GI foods (and thus amaranth)??

Anyway, now I am a bit confused. Of course, "we are all different", but I have filled in my SWAMI almost to perfection (no doubtful measurements, got the DNA testing done, etc), and still I get amaranth as a diamond but then don't feel good on it. Should I continue the amaranth to support my gut health, should I stop and try again later, or is it likely amaranth is just no good for me and SWAMI is wrong? Thanks in advance for your thoughts..

I simply don't like it! so don't eat it.
I'm not sure I'm very good with soy either, so have stopped using it for a while but will retry at some point.

Hi Damon,
I have been following my SWAMI since January. I initially focused on diamonds, as I wanted to lose 10 lbs.

Amaranth was the only diamond grain (of 3) that I could find-and I'm supposed to have 3 servings/day. Ugh. I never liked the taste of amaranth & I like most things. I made it palatable (& easier to cook) in my rice cooker. Ate in morning w/ lime juice, ginger, cinnamon, walnuts & figs. Tasted pretty good!

But I, too, realized I just didn't feel right. After 2 weeks I stopped eating it and substituted brown rice. Brown rice is not a diamond for me but a superfood- it's cheaper, easier...I incorporate a 1/2 cup into each of 3 meals and I have not only lost the 10 pounds but feel fantastic!

Joyce I also cannot handle soy. Bloating & general yuck.

I have always had low blood pressure as well as low blood sugar (65 years old).  My mother said she had low blood pressure most of her life until her 70's and then it went high, but she is blood type O.
Whenever I try to increase my exercise, I get really shaky and weak and suspect low sugar.  I have taken my blood pressure when this happens and it is OK, but have never checked my sugar.
I keep trying to get myself more motivated to stick with the Warrior program - my husband is a Hunter and has been very ill for 6 months now, so my health has taken a backseat lately.
I will be interested to see if any other Warriors have low blood pressure and if it is a problem.


I want to be an outrageous old woman who never gets called an old lady.  I want to get leaner & meaner, sharp edged & earth colored, till I fade away from pure joy.

A midwesterner, trying to live the BTD life!

Hi Bell Barbara, I too have very low blood pressure (today it was 91/60) but Drs never seem concerned (they sometimes take a reading while I sit then another when I stand, I should ask what that is about next time)  My glucose tolerance tests are perfect but I my pulse sometimes speeds up for no reason or when thinking of something stressful, this I do notice right away with a weird anxious feeling &  I do get shaky and feint if I haven't eaten enough/dehydrated or really tired.  (diabetes and thrombosis has struck a few in my family, but it is those who do not care about their diet or lifestyle  , and hypothryoid for some relatives but no high blood pressure though.
Damon, it is a late reply but I use amaranth, and brown rice or quinoa flours to make cookies as a special treat for my son if he has friends over and they all love them, and an excuse for me to have one with a coffee!!!  (all ingredients are super and diamond foods for us too)  with some olive oil or ghee, maple syrup/vegetable glycerine and macadamias/almonds or dates or dried apricots or dark choc and walnut...oh yummmm crunchy outside and chewy inside    But not an everyday food of course.  I don't have a glucose issue so maybe I don't notice anything unusual???  I will have to try it in a bread receipe as I should be having more amaranth and quinoa too.

Damon,

Don't be discouraged.  You say you use it almost daily.  I can't imagine eating it that much.  I am an A+ NON Warrior on SWAMI.  Amaranth also is a diamond for me.

1.  I have found on SWAMI's recipes a GREAT simple recipe for crackers.  You just add water to make a soft dough.  Roll it out as thin as possible.  Place it on a baking sheet.  Brush it with oil (I use almond).  Sprinkle with sea salt.  Bake for 6 min. at 350 degrees.  Check often.  Make sure you bake them long enough to be crispy but not burned!

2.  When making any other baked products I mix my allowed grains (including amaranth) and, so far, the results have been good.  For example, This morning I made a bread from COOK RIGHT 4 YOUR TYPE which calls for 1 cup of white spelt.  I subbed 1/4 cup each of soy, amaranth, quinoa, and brown rice.  Delicious.

Don't be afraid to experiment.  Also,  COOK RIGHT 4 YOUR TYPE contains 30-day menu plans for O, B, A, and AB.  I've taken the A plan suggested and incorporated it with my SWAMI.  You may find a lot of relief and satisfaction trying that.

Wishing you the best.

Yes Eno, excellent work!  ... I have to re-visit that book myself and dust it off the bookcase ... we tend to overlook the obvious sometime ... nice to get fresh looks into the mix to keep us focus!  Great start!!

To all of you reading, I was Rattabone previously, but, since I'm just stumbling around in this software, when I officially registered the software would not permit me to use that handle stating that it was already in use. (?  So, I simply spelled it BACKWARDS!

If anyone can instruct me as to how to add info to my "handle" (such as NON, +, Warrior, etc.), please proceed!  

Thanks.

Why, if type A nonnies have the lowest amount of stomach acid, are they allowed meat?  (Especially warriors) Does it really take more acid to break down grain than meat?

Meat is optional for warriors.

If they choose to eat meat. the amount the amount on the diet is fairly restricted in part due to low acid levels.

Non secretors are allowed more meat than secretors, but nonsecreting warriors still do not need to eat meat if they choose not to.

Thanks C sharp, I know i don't have to but i am trying to understand why lamb, goat & mutton would be in my geno harmonic blends (good for cellular detox & glycation endproduct removal) if I have less stomach acid to digest it??  I can also have turkey and guinea hen... (one serve meat & one serve poultry per week)

Anyone else have leaky gut/acid reflux problems?  I started the body ecology diet at the beginning of the year and that made my migraines go away but I am still left with eczema and sometimes constipation.  

Anyway, shortly before I discovered these books, I had incorporated both tomatoes and bananas into my diet again thinking it would do no harm but I think over time (since I was eating them every day) it caused me to start having a very slight acid reflux (which I did not get prior) until it got really bad one night and I felt horrible. When I discovered that they weren't all that great for me, I removed them from my diet but still suffer from the slight acid reflux no matter what I eat (even foods which are supposed to be good for me). I thought a B complex might help solve the problem so have just started taking that to see if it works. Hope so.  

The leaky gut issue was created after accidentally food poisoning myself three times in the course of a few months ...about two years ago. I just didn't know I had it or what it was until the beginning of this year. It's been a sort of a frustrating journey so far but at least I don't have sinus problems or migraines any more so that's something to be thankful for.

HAD!  When really bad, it may take some time to heal completely, but you can do it by maintaining high beneficial compliance and possibly adding some supplements to aid intestinal lining healing as well as proper flora rebuilding.  This is the basis of good health, so fixing this is paramount and will provide great rewards.

So by this statement, am I to take away that you are saying that as a Warrior, your intestinal damage is so bad that it can never be remedied?  You are very young to be despairing that your body will never heal itself.

Intestinal damage isn't really the issue with warriors. You have a situation where the body's metabolism is shot, and that is causing the leaky gut like issues. You don't produce enough stomach acid, enzymes don't function particularly right, nor does liver, etc... Every thing is compromised in function because of stimulation of hormones not working how they should, and cardiovascular system lacking (they go together unfortunately). You have a problem but that problem isn't the source of the issue. You can benefit from some things that help with those issues (ghee etc), but if you want to really get better it isn't the concentration; and won't do a lot.

No other Genotype can relate to this, in this way. A Gatherer who is thrifty might have a little bit of a similarity; but a gatherers approach to fixing it is vastly easy by comparison. They have more stomach acid, they can exercise intensely (and at a higher level) without even considering compensation (yoga, meditation, etc), and generally need to eat more of the right stuff (meat and vegetables). A warrior has to watch the exercise so it doesn't get too intense, compensate for it anyways, eat less, and work on keeping stress low.

Joe how would you feel if you had to be bored all the time practicing stress reducing, eating very little, and watching people around you having fun eating more and engaging in exercise that has become cultural, fun? If you don't do this then you may suffer from leaky gut type issues. (believe me I'm familiar, like when I can smell the foods I eat in my urine) You have to work towards things by not working towards anything. If that wasn't strange enough I can't even begin to explain how contradictory that is to a warriors mind who wants to get things solved right away.

Dr. D said that Warriors should not diet. When we diet we get fatter. He's right of course.

I totally gave up dairy. I'm dropping weight much more easily.I am definitely not a Teacher.  I eat mostly a vegetarian diet. I don't have fish...hate fish. I have beans, grains, vegetables.1 egg a day..very small amount of nuts..I drink almond milk. I had to cut back on the soy as it was stalling my weight loss. I still eat tofu and tempeh reguarly just am drinking more almond milk and much less soy milk..which I use for baking and cooking. I don't have a leaky gut problem. ...yeah, Val Kilmer is (was is more like it) hot.
